Whether you are just starting out as a new model, or you are an experienced model who is seeking to increase your representation to larger markets, submitting the best photos is no doubt the best way to impress a modeling agency if modeling is truly your passion.
Tips on the kind of pictures modeling agencies are looking for
Fancy clothes and extraordinary pictures are not what modeling agencies are looking for. On the contrary, this may work against you. The agency might think that you are inflexible and that your interest is in a particular style of fashion and modeling. Agencies look for new and fresh people they can mold and important of all a humble person they can easily work with. For that reason, always send simple photos with minimal makeup and simple clothes.
Have a simple background as much as you can. Keep in mind that the agency is looking for only you and not anyone else, so you should be the only one appearing in your photos. Using a simple white wall as your background is a perfect idea.
Do not edit your photos
Because of the nature of the modeling agency industry, their staff is photoshop gurus. So do not try to photoshop or use any other software because you will be spotted from afar. Editing is not necessary to make you look good in your photos. Natural is the way to go. This way you will look authentic, and you will be known for your confidence personality.
Your posts on social media matter a lot if truly modeling is your passion. To stay relevant with the times, modeling agencies are always online and digitally savvy. If you interest them, they will do a background check on you. For that reason, avoid posting studio quality photos online. Post casual photos and selfies that will show the agency that you can look good even without much effort.
Always make sure to submit simple, clear and well-taken photos.
