Models can be represented by modeling agencies in different markets. For example, you could have a New York agency, a Los Angeles agency, a Paris agency, and a Tokyo modeling agency. Scouts from international agencies often visit other modeling agencies outside of their own markets to scout for new models. Even if you are working at a local agency in your area, international scouts will often stop by looking for new faces.


Promoting yourself and finding a legitimate modeling agency can be a daunting task. How do know who you can trust? What are the best markets for your particular look? Where are the best modeling agencies? That’s where MODEL WOLRD comes in!

What does it take to become a model?

Models are scouted because they are unusually tall as well as being slim, and physically fit. You have to be fit and healthy to sustain a career in modelling.

Do you have to be tall to be a fashion model?

Yes (see Getting Started as a model) If you see someone advertising for models and saying height is not important, don't believe it: they are probably only after your money (see rogue agencies).

Does it cost a lot of money to be a model?

As a model you are self-employed. You need your 'tools of the trade': photographs, index cards, a portfolio, representation on an agency's website etc. If you are not living at home you will need rent for accommodation and money for living expenses and traveling around. A good agent who believes in you may advance some of these expenses and reclaim them over time from what you earn.
