Applying through agencies is the only option at this point to successfully book in castings and/or callings. Freelancing is another option but it's difficult to obtain any jobs if you don't know anyone in the industry.
Agencies will ask for a start up cost to assist in giving you a basic profile on their website with several professional photos to have in a portfolio and comp cards.
In order to get an agency to scout you, you need high quality photos of the following:
Wear a white t-shirt with jeans. No makeup. Have a photo of your hair down (away from your face) and a photo of your hair up in a basic ponytail.
-Full body shot
White t shirt, jeans and any coloured heels. Make sure the clothing fits you well. A picture from the side, back and front.
-Make sure you get a mani and pedi. No colour on nails OR french mani/pedi's are fine.
-Wear nude coloured undergarments. Make sure they're seamless
-Read before you sign ANYTHING
-Enjoy yourself (HAVE FUN)!!
-Decline an offer if you're not comfortable with something. Don't allow someone to manipulate you into doing something you don't want to.
If you could get yourself into TFP shots (Time for prints) do it. You get professional photos to expand your portfolio.. free of cost. You give your time to a photographer and they give you free photos and they gain more experience. Win win situation.
