When you are considering becoming a professional model, there are a few things you will have to learn about the modelling industry. The first thing is, it's important not to expect great things in a short time. There are the odd success stories of men and women who get lucky in their first year of trying, but the vast majority take longer, or don't make it at all. Accepting the fact that it is one of the most competitive businesses in the world, and that jobs are rare compared to the number of applicants, should be a priority if you want to avoid disappointment.
Secondly, make sure that your portfolio can compete on your behalf. It's the modelling equivalent of a CV. If it's old, or looks dated, or simply isn't of a good standard, you will be put to the bottom of the pile immediately by any good agency. You only need a handful of shots, Thomas Street Studios recommend between six and 10 photos for a rounded portfolio. Any more than that and they won't get seen, any fewer and the viewer will be left with questions. Include at least one full body shot and one headshot and you can't go far wrong. The Thomas Street Studios team know all the industry standards for modelling portfolios and will make sure that your portfolio shoot gives you what you need.
