      You don't have to be a member to do this, so you can get an idea of what kind of people are already on the site before you join. You must, however, be registered as a member of MyModelCareer.com before you can start contacting people.

    • By joining MyModelCareer.com will I be guaranteed work?

      No reputable modeling/talent agency or service can guarantee work. If they do, this is a warning of a scam. MyModelCareer.com cannot guarantee job placements for its members because the amount of jobs a model gets largely depends on the quality of the model's photographs, 'look' and what is in demand.

      Our Starter Pack and Premium Services are designed to maximize exposure world wide, thus helping you to be seen by the right people and to find representation.

  4. Being a model

    • I would like to be a model what should I do?

      We believe that to be a model is about having "the right look", the right shots and the right place/people to show them to. As we are not a model agency (we offer a place for models to connect with agencies, photographers and other industry professionals), we highly encourage all new models to find and get representation through a reputable model agency. So you're at the right place to find one!

      Remember: To get working as a model you have to be proactive, it's not enough to just be sitting pretty. How? Use our website to get yourself seen. Apply for castings, create your own network, pimp up your profile by having everything completed including your very best shots. Your modeling career is in your hands too!

    • Can I Be a Model?

      You are likely to hear that to be a model you need to be beautiful, tall and slender with perfect proportions. Now this is certainly true for high fashion models, where designers want one type of model that they feel shows off their designs in the best way.

      However if you do not fit this criteria don't despair, as there are many other areas that you can work in successfully and lucratively as a model. The modeling industry needs all different shapes and sizes. It ranges from the models who are required for the runways of Paris and Milan to those being seen in the background of TV commercials. You need to find the right fit for you and your place in the industry.

      To help you with this we have listed the different types of modeling work that's available and the criteria for each, and as with most things in life there are always exceptions...

    • What are the main different types of modeling?

      Fashion: Covers a range of different disciplines within the fashion world, including runways and editorial, commercial print, catalog and glamour modeling.

      High Fashion: When you see the incredibly tall and lean figures that grace the runways and editorials for the leading fashion houses and designers, these are the High Fashion models. They are generally required to be between 172cm to 180cm (5"8 to 5"11), with a dress size of 4-6 US (6-8 UK), with a typical bust size of 34. The age range can be from 14 to 25. For guys the age range is more flexible and they can start from the age of 16 until their late 40's. They need to be between 180cm to 188cm (5"11 to 6"2), with an excellent physique and a chest size of 94cm to 106cm (37" to 42") and 76cm to 81cm (30" to 32") waist. Guys tend to have longer careers if they look after themselves.

      Plus Sized: Modeling for the larger body type, this type of modeling is on the increase and a relatively new phenomenon. If you're confident, with great attributes and you are between the sizes of 12-16 US (14-18 UK) then this could be for you. More and more advertisers are using Plus Size Models to promote their products in a bid to appeal to a broader demographic. As a Plus Size model you will still need to have great skin, teeth and hair and have that something special about you. For High Fashion Plus Sized Models the height requirements remain at a minimum of 172cm (5"8).

      Real Life & People: If you like the idea of modeling, but do not fit into the above categories, then this could be for you. Real life models are used in advertising or corporate campaigns, when companies are looking to represent the everyday person. As a TV/Film Extra you will generally be non-featured (no speaking parts) and in the background of a scene. This can be fun and interesting to be part of, but it can also be long hours with lots of waiting around. The benefits are that if you are flexible with your days, it can be a good way to supplement your income.

      Body Parts: For example if you have great abs and pretty hands...

      Senior: Models that are older than 45 years.

    • Know more about measurements:

      Measurements differ around the world, so check out our chart below for an easy way to convert them.

      Remember to always be truthful about your measurements. You may find yourself looking for another career if you show up for a photo shoot and you aren't the size the agency or photographer is expecting.

      Now, take your body measurements, get your model profile, and start applying for castings or contacting other models, photographers or model agencies! The first and most important thing that you need to do is to get going!
