With the Internet comes The Amateurs. This means a girl has to do her homework to not be misled into a mistake and end up working with an amateur photographer. Stay aware and away of amateur photographers. Those people who are not really photographers, but these “guys with cameras.” Working with an amateur will bring you straight to amateur-ville. Stay out that place.
Strive to work with professionalism. You will get ahead. Getting ahead means investing in your goals and the more you strive to get the professionalism the better for your pursuits.
Professional photographers and agencies are NOT looking for models on the internet; they simply do not have time. Also it is un-rely-able to find aspiring models online because also you do not know how professional they are and many girls who use internet sites are just "showing off photos". Or that is the way it comes off. Anyways in my memoir Almost 5'4" I share my transformation between amateur and professional, between the internet and agencies and the ad campaign in my book and I think you will like it and could relate.
