3. Take some digis and if you can, get some professional photos

In the modelling world, there are 2 types of photos you'll need: digis and portfolio shots. Portfolio shots are taken by professional photographers and are usually edited and much more refined. Digis, however, are the complete opposite.

One of your biggest tools when you are making your mark in the modelling world is going to be your Instagram. You want it to work for you and help promote you to any potential agents or brands!

6. Get seen by an agency

Once you've got everything together, the next step is to try and get in front of a modelling agency. Why do you need an agent you say? Well, an agent is the one who is linked to the brands and work. Once you sign with them it is their job to promote you and get you working!
