Top Video: HOW TO APPLY TO A MODEL AGENCY | Submitting a strong application!

Summary

Watch on YouTube

I feel like I always say that I'm back because I feel like I do spirit for a while, but I don't think it's been too long since I last uploaded, which is good. Now, I kind of like skipped, but this is what you want to do towards the end, obviously, when you're 100% ready. So typically on all of these websites for you to apply, it's going to say become a model or get scouted or apply or get signed or something like that. So after that, on the Wilomina page, you will choose your city. And it's just basically letting them know about your location.

Hello, it's me. I'm back, guys. I feel like I always say that I'm back because I feel like I do spirit for a while, but I don't think it's been too long since I last uploaded, which is good. But today is a really good video for all you aspiring models. Today's video is going to help a lot of you because it really focuses on how do you apply to a modeling agency.

How do you apply to your best abilities and apply correctly and really put forward a strong application? Right. So anyways, if you're new, welcome. And if you're not, I'm Rowena, and I film modeling advice videos, along with some other fun stuff. So welcome in general.

Okay. So to get started, I wrote down a couple of steps on how you're going to approach submitting to an agency. So step number one, before anything, before opening up the agency, going to sign up or to become a model page. Prepare everything you need so the first thing you want to do before applying and have everything ready. So everything you may need and everything that you may not need.

Because sometimes if an agency is interested in you, they might email you and be like, hey, Arlena, do you have this model video for me? And you're going to be like, no, I don't know what a model video is, and I don't have a model video. What is that? So you want to always be prepared for the application and prepared for anything that might happen after the application. So I'm going to go through this step at a time.

So the five things you have to prepare before applying is one, your digitals. Go to someone, go to a photographer, go to a family friend, find some natural lighting, and take your digital. I have an old video, which I will hopefully update soon. I'll put a link up here on how to take your digital. It's typically the same thing.

A few things have changed, but not exactly. So you want to take those digitals, have those ready. The next thing you want to do is build a portfolio. It doesn't have to be huge. It can be a couple of images, different images of you, different clothing and different places and whatnot.

And so you want to create a portfolio. After you've created a portfolio, you should start go to a Google Drive and create a Google Drive folder where you can upload all your images on the Google Drive and have those ready and set to go so that you can share that link with them. And you can always update it with new images. It's just an easy way to just keep everything organized and just easy access, really. The next thing you want to do is retake your measurements.

So you don't want to open up an agency and be like, oh, my God, what is my bust again? Like, oh, I forgot. Maybe I should measure it now. No, you want to be consistent and you want to have accurate measurements. So I suggest that before applying, retake your measurements, your bus, your waist, your hips for men, your inseam, your Instagram.

I think I don't know what else to do with shoulder length or something. Your shoe size, have everything ready and set to go. So one thing I like to do and what I suggested to a lot of the girls that I work with on my model coaching website is I ask you guys to create folders and create folders that says portfolio, digital measurements, bio. So you'll have those ready and set to go just so you can apply easier and be more efficient. So you have your digital there, you have your portfolio images in a Google drive.

Your measurements are retaken. Then you want to create a comp card. So for creating a comp card, it's very easy. I have a link over here. Just go press on this and watch it.

I use two different apply, and all you need really is two good images, more or less, and your name and measurements on this comp card because this is something that is physical, that you can attach as a PDF that somebody can view, and it's something that you can carry with you to open calls. If you decide to apply the open calls or mail this comp card in, maybe a lot of agency aren't in the offices right now, so I don't think that's such a smart idea. But still, having a comp card is always good. If somebody ever Scouts you on the street and they're like, oh, my God, would you like to model? And you'll be like, oh, my God, yes.

I actually have a comp card here if you would like to keep this. So it's always good to have that on the side.

Last thing is just how I said some agencies can be interested in you and email you and be like, hey, can you send me this and this and that? Sometimes they may ask you, hey, can you send me a model video? So a lot of the times you guys don't know what a model video is. I'll go into that some other time. Typically model video, you're saying your name, your height, and showing your profiles.

That's kind of the details of this. I help girls with my model coaching program in detail through this. So if you guys really want one on one help, you can always check out the link. I'll put it, it's always in my bio on the bottom. I have a website for that.

So you want to do the model video and also have that in another folder. So now you're set and you're ready to go. You have everything in the folders and you're organized. Right after that, you've researched your agency. You know what agencies you want to apply to make a list on your notes, the list of agency you want to apply to that you think you're going to fit best in.

You have your folders and you have a list of agencies, go one agency at a time and submit, submit, submit, submit and take it in that way. Now, I kind of like skipped, but this is what you want to do towards the end, obviously, when you're 100% ready. Now, the next step is so you have all your information, you've created your folders, you put your images on your Google Drive, and then the next thing is the application process. So I'm going to actually screen share, right? So I'm going to open my laptop actually while I'm talking to you guys so that I can see it because I'm filming on my phone, but I'm going to screen share right over here.

You guys can see that probably right now. So I'm just going to go to Wilomina and I'm going to go to become a model. So typically on all of these websites for you to apply, it's going to say become a model or get scouted or apply or get signed or something like that. And that's usually where the tab you're going to go to. So after that, on the Wilomina page, you will choose your city.

So I'm going to choose New York. And then the division is woman. So as you can see here, it's going to tell you first name, last name. So you're going to put in all this information, your birthday, current city, country, state, phone number, et cetera. Instagram Instagram is Super, super important.

When you are applying, they will look at your Instagram page. They will see if you have highlights, they will see if your feed is aesthetically pleasing enough. They will see if you are active, if you post on your stories, if you are social and interactive with your followers. All of these things are really important because even the clients that these agencies work with, the clients want somebody that has a voice and that is out there and can post the client's images on their stories and feed and so on. So that is really important also to see you in different lights, natural images, makeup images, full body selfies, et cetera.

That's a whole other thing. Again, I go over this in my model program and it's a whole other story. But your Instagram is really important. So if your Instagram is not really touched up enough or you don't feel happy with it, I would add this into another step where make sure your Instagram is aesthetically pleasing enough and looks good enough for you to provide all those things like your highlights, et cetera, different types of images before you apply as well. So going through this, you're going to again, like I said, your measurements, your height, your address, your bus.

So this is for a woman, for a man is a little bit different. They want for a dress size, your hair, et cetera. Now down here, this is one of my favorite favorite spots that says Skills, Talents and Notes. Sometimes it says tell me about yourself or whatever that boxes. So that box is really important because it is your only chance to actually let them know about who you actually are and everything that you see with this is all just very like, how old are you?

What's your age? What are your measurements? Where do you live? So it's very just facts about yourself. And like, yes, this could be also facts about yourself necessarily.

But this is just the moment that you can really let them dive into who you are and get to know you. And so it's a really important space that a lot of people tend to ignore. And you shouldn't ignore it. And you shouldn't just put less than 50 words. This one says 180 characters Max.

So I would write that. So typically this is 180. I would try to write something that is 100 words to 180 just because each agency has different. So, like, some will tell you 200 words, some will tell you 100. So you don't want to write too much and then have to just sit and edit and reedit and add and et cetera.

That takes a lot of time. So anyway, so this is a really important factor where you want to really tell them about yourself. So you want to tell them about your skills. What do you do? Are you an athlete?

Do you have hobbies? What do you do for fun, et cetera? Let them know about who you are, your talents, if you play piano or if you sing or if you're a huge gym head, what do you call Jimmy? I don't know. I don't know a gym person if you're big on the gym, if you play a sport.

So you want to really let them know about who you are. Other than that. Now, things I'm talking about is skills, because in this application, you don't see really something that tells you tell me about where you're from or where you grew up or your nationality in terms of your country and your state. And it's just basically letting them know about your location. So if you were born somewhere else or if you're somewhere else, if I'm like, I'm Middle Eastern, right?

I grew up in Jordan. I would write that because that's interesting to them. Hi, my name is Marina Carme. I grew up in Jordan. I am actually Palestinian, Jordanian.

And my hobbies are blah, blah, blah. I moved to New York in I've been doing this and this not I'm studying into designing school. This is just a brief from throwing it at you. So anything that is important and that is interesting about yourself, you want to include in that box, and you always want to mention that. And then also, again, like I just said earlier, your hobbies, your scales, something you're good at finally looking down at the application, you have the digitals which every agency is going to ask for, but you already have those and you've taken them and they're ready to go to just be uploaded.

So after that, I don't know, I can't really go through this, but I didn't type everything in, but I think that was it. That would be it. And you just press submit and you're done. So typically, this is exactly how every agency is going to ask for these applications. This is how they look.

Like they might be a little bit different, but this is just the overall typical application that you're going to see.

So the last but not least is a follow up email. So a follow up email is really important because you want to attract their attention. So sometimes they might not see that you uploaded this and they might not see your application or they might not feel too inclined to hire you based on not liking your digital or your bio wasn't too good or whatever. So I always do with the girls I work with is a follow up email. So your follow up email is your time to even tell them more about yourself.

Really make them get to know you forcefully. A lot of the times these emails go to a specific person that is going to see your email. It's not like a general email. Sometimes it is. But sometimes if it's going to a specific person, that person is going to have to read your email because it's going to come up.

So sending a follow up email, including again, your interest, who you are, your hobbies, what you do and just tell them about yourself. And then last but not least, you have a folder that we said you have your portfolio in the Dropbox, right? Not the drop or the Google Drive. Attach the link of the Google Drive be like, hey, I'm sharing with you a Google Drive link of some test shoots and creative photos that I have done that I would love for you to have a look at. If you're interested then thank you very much.

Blah, blah, blah. Because in these applications you don't really get to show them any of your creative and fun photos. So this is your chance to show it to them in that follow up email. This is kind of all my tips. I feel like I just ran through this, but I feel like it was quick and easy to understand and I think everything I said was clear.

If you have any questions, you can always ask me. But that's all I got for you for really applying in the best way possible. And I hope everything was clear. Let me know if you have any questions in the bottom. Yeah.

Okay. I feel like speedo is so fast that I feel like I need to keep talking. Anyways, I love you guys. I hope this was good. I hope you enjoyed subscribe and like subscribe and give this video thumbs up and yeah subscribe subscribe subscribe subscribe turn the notification Bell on follow me on my socials okay.

    Most common mistakes of aspiring models

    Much of modelling work is about managing appearances when you're off duty. On social media, the lines between personal and professional, and private and public are blurry and complicated. Part of a model's professional life is to cultivate an 'authentic' brand through social media - true authenticity not necessary. This means posting candids that may not be so candid. It means strategically sharing the runway shots where you look good and the client is impressive. It means evoking a sense of intimacy in a not-so-intimate way.  Personally, you should relax, have fun, and share things that make you happy. Professionally, you should impress the people who could one day make or break your career. Much like in unhealthy high school romances, everything you post will be superficially scrutinized. Aspiring but not-yet-signed models often already know this, and while not able to do actual modelling work yet, may take to social media to prematurely cultivate a brand. As such, we frequently come across well-meaning young ladies and men who are woefully unaware of the mistakes they are making. A+ for initiative, but let's see if we can't help you out a bit.
