Question: How long will it take before I get contacted by an agency through MODELS.com?It depends on a number of factors, some members get contacted after a few days, others several months after joining. Keep in mind we cannot guarantee that you will get contacted, in the end it is up to the professionals and agencies using MODELS.com to decide who they want to contact. But there are many things you can do to improve your chances:
- Make sure your stats/measurements are accurate
- Have good photos (simple snapshots or polaroids for beginners are recommended)
- Use our Agency Directory to find agencies near you and contact them
- Use the MODELS.com Forums to network with other members and get advice
- Read our Archives of Special Chat sessions with professionals to get invaluable information
After you create your MODELS.com portfolio our member support team will assist you in telling you what to change and how to improve your photos. Once your portfolio is finalized, it is inserted in our database of portfolios, which is searched by the Participating Agencies. You will also be listed in our Open Search where other members including photographers and modeling professionals can contact you (listing in the Open Search is optional.)
When your portfolio is searched by the Participating Agencies, depending on your profile and on the agents who review your portfolio, it could take as little as a week or up to a couple of months for you to get contacted.
Before you sign up, you should also make sure you read the requirements, while there can be exceptions if you are not within the usual height and size models are expected to be, your chances of success will be very limited.
Keep in mind trends and fashion are always changing, so if you don't get contacted at first, an agent could still sign you up later, after having previously rejected you.
