Runway Modeling Opportunitites

Do you have to be tall to become a runway model is the question posed on a prominent modeling agency's website.

Yes, for the most part you must fit the mode of what a runway model is. However, there are always exceptions to the rule and you may be that exception. Keep in mind that in being the exception to the rule you are truly going against the grain and must have extra tough skin, so to speak.

Additionally, it would be wise to learn about the other modeling career opportunities as not to miss your chance for success within the business. Visit the Modeling Industry: Secrets Revealed Site for details about the modeling business.

Male Modeling Opportunities

On the Ford Modeling and Talent Agency Site a young man asked why is it so difficult to get noticed as a male model? Below is my response.

Whenever you have a large pool of aspiring candidates and a limited number of positions it's going to be extremely competitive.

You may want to look at the various type of modeling that you may be able to do. For instance, print, commercial, runway, athletic and promotional modeling etc. are just a few of the different types of modeling that exist. Consider modeling for a local or regional business who may not be able to hire a Ford Modeling Agency. In this way you may begin to build your portfolio while generating income.

Perhaps this will compensate you until such time you secure a larger more lucrative modeling contract. For information on the Modeling Industry: Secrets Revealed Site.

How Models Can Sell Photos Online?

As a print model you are in a position to sell your photos. Here are some things to consider.

1) You need to get permission from the photographer to use photos from a shoot. The industry and even copyright law will disagree with what I'm getting ready to say, but if you pay a photographer for a shoot you should own the copyrights. In order to make this legal in most instances you'll need to have the photographer sign a "work for hire" agreement.

2) You'll want a way to collect money online. Paypal is fairly easy to set up an gives you access to people who are willing and able to make online purchases with a major credit card.

3) You'll need a secure way to digitally sell your digital photos online. Ejunkie works well.
