What models need to know!

As an agent, I see models come in every day seeking representation for modeling. I am always amazed at the models that come in with no photos, a messy book, old photos that look nothing like them now, and the list goes on.

Remember people, you are here to impress. You must be on top of your game. Show up with the best photos you have, do not ask the agent to "look at your disk" of hundreds of photos. We do not have time. If every model came in and did the same thing, no one would ever get a booking.
And NEVER bring your lap top to set up and go over photos.

The moral of the story is to go to a casting or meeting totally prepared. Be properly dressed, have your materials ready for the agent. Follow up with an e mail with your photo attatched thanking the agent for meeting with you. This keeps you in their mind, and you look professional.
