First of all, when you decide to join a modeling agency and prepare all the good content that you have in order to provide the best from yourself, make sure that the modeling agency will require you to submit a resume. Starting from the education, experience, skills and in the end a little bit of description about yourself (describing how a great fit you are for this agency).
Different agencies require different resumes but there are some other agencies that you don’t need to send a proper resume but screenshots, test shots, or even snapshots as proof or as a proper application. In this huge market of modeling, there is space for everyone who wants to become a model in the future but a portfolio is something that every model needs. In the impossibility of having a portfolio, it doesn’t mean that your career is over and you can’t stand a chance of becoming a model in the future.
This is wrong. Supermodels have stated that it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a proper portfolio but as soon as you have special or super skills then you are special to agencies and of course to the world of fashion as well. The way you have to see a portfolio is like a resume, for example, the more work you do (including projects and other stuff) the more you add in the portfolio and the more skills you will gain during the experiences that you will have in collaboration with clients that the agency will book for you.
Keep in mind and always note the skills that you have while doing the proper project. They will be interested and intrigued during the whole process of discussion. If you don’t have a proper skill then it’s easy to gain one and improve it. Improving a special skill it’s not such a big deal but the perfect placement will make it a super skill. Imagine during a photo-session while you are quiet and following some instructions, you start dancing and making some sort of body moves that will break all that normality into something extraordinary. Congratulations!, you’ve just passed and increased your skills and reputation just by a single movement.
Feel free to do as you feel yourself at the moment. There is nothing more precious than you. Dance, train yourself and act like you are living to the fullest while doing the work or project and you will understand how fulfilled you are.
