Getting a print modeling agency
To get a print modeling agency you need to think about what agency wants to see.
Just looking at a print modeling agencies website and you will see it is personality, energy, natural smile, and the shots involve models "with an upbeat appeal". Watch commercials and you will notice the people in them are working naturally with a product, as if they owned it, they are models, but they have a more "natural" feel.
Fashion and commercial print modeling are totally different worlds and a girl who wants to get into print modeling should know that she has to target herself towards the agencies with the right photos that the agencies can work with.
You will have to roll up your sleeves and get busy creating the photos you need and creating a compcard. It all takes time, energy, and many girls give up before they really try. It can take months, or even years to get in the door with the best print and talent agencies.
Perfecting your photos and showing that you can work with products in a natural way should be your goal. Whether talking on the phone, holding a handbag, cooking, cleaning, shopping, brushing your hair, putting on a shoe, walking a dog, typing at the computer. You will want to show the print agency you can model products, and that you have energy that can translate into modeling any type of product.
