Applying to become a model with an agency is an exciting time. Ensure you set yourself up for success by submitting accurate and tasteful photos.
Photos should be taken on a plain background, with the individual facing forward. Show the whole face, both shoulders and both hips.
Photos should be recent (maximum 1 month).
Women: Wear no make-up and hair down to show its colour and natural length. Wear a form fitting out.
Men: Style hair and show facial hair as worn daily. Wear a form fitting out.
When measuring, you should be in a bathing suit or underwear to get the most accurate measurements possible. Use a cloth or plastic measure, not the metal construction kind! For accuracy, you should have someone take your measurements, instead of trying to do it yourself.
Height: Stand against a wall, with your eyes forward, no shoes on and your heels and shoulders pressed against the wall.
Chest (Women): Measure across nipples. Make sure to be relaxed and standing up straight.
Chest (Men): With your arms relaxed by your side, measure the fullest part of your chest under your arms.
Waist (Women): For women, measure around smallest part of your waist. If you are uncertain where to measure, bend sideways to the right or left. This is where you measure. If you are still uncertain, measure over your belly button.
Waist (Men): Measure above where you wear your boxers or briefs.
Hips: Stand with your feet together and measure around the largest part of your bum.
Dress Size (Women Only): This is the size of clothing or dress you would purchase to wear. This is a number size (0-22)
Jacket (Men Only): Have someone measure the broadest part of your shoulders, over your arms. Keep the measuring tape parallel to the ground.
