How does a model scout find models? How do models start a career in the modelling industry and what’s the secret?

Freelance modelling is becoming more and more popular. It can result in an amazing job, working with incredible creative teams, travelling the world and earning a very good living. If you would like to learn more about modelling and have our team review your images:

There are so many beautiful men and women out there, that it can be hard to choose who has the “look”. Models are found everywhere you can imagine. Outside of clothing departments, at festivals, even walking on the streets.

The Freelancer Club talks to Professional Model Scout Laura about her job and the task of finding Models, as well as any advice for aspiring models to grab her attention!

Silver Pony says:

When I was 9, so almost 6 years ago, I was at a mall with my family and a model scout came up to me and invited me to one of their agency’s events. I never went, because at the time I hadn’t even put a thought into that type of thing. Numerous people have told me that I should be a model, but I just kinda laughed it off :D. But now I’m kinda thinking about doing something small but idk…

Eulla Rodriguez says:

I remembered I was scouted by a modelling agent when I was 14 in Omegle lmao. It was really odd at first because she’s like, OMG, you’re beautiful! And then bam, she said something about getting me as a model and she has to like look at my figure in the webcam. It was so awkward because I had to walk, and I had to show her my bra (she told me to), and then she asked me how tall I am and all that. She said that when I agree to be scouted, my first salary would be 2500 USD which isn’t really that bad. But sadly I turned it down because my mom didn’t allow me to and she doesn’t know I was in Omegle lol. But somehow, I wish I had taken the risk of agreeing then maybe my life would have been different.

Emily Collins says:

Sahana Gopalan says:

I am in a model company and I am also on the track to be an actor. My dad is from India and my mom is from here. My brother and I are from U.S.A too. And I wanted to be a model for 2 weeks and I asked my mom. Next thing I know is I am going for auditions. I made it in the model team! Next I have to try out for acting. The company has photoshoots, acting room, makeup room, and all that jazz. Next week I will be in a photoshoot! Every girl has a unqiue face and that is how I got selected. Also if you want to try out for modeling, what I did was to be myslef and be nice to everyone. Thats my story

Crystal7735 says:

hi! i am 6’0.5 tall and i’ve always really wanted to model but i have not had any experience in modeling! do you think it could hold me back? and if/when i want to start sending in pictures to websites do they have to be professional pictures or can they just be taken by family or friends? which would a model scout really prefer? because i mean i think i’m tall enough to model and i’m pretty confident in myself i’m just worried that i haven’t had any experience! thanks!

Forevss_ ArtiCool says:

what age do u have to be?

GenevaKitten says:

When I was 8 I was asked to be a model. A scout confronted me in the IHOP restroom. Of course I said no, because I quite liked being a normal young girl at the time. As of now, at thirteen years old, I still don’t regret my decision. Modeling is a disgusting and dirty world to involve yourself in. You can’t make a lot of your own decisions.

Dan 2016 says:

You don’t need to a beautiful to be a model. You just have to have something to offer that is different and look good in front of the camera. A model could have scars, a rather unusual large jaw structure, a differently shaped nose, or lips, but it’s these kind of features that add to the uniqueness of a models face. It’s these kind of characteristics that agents and the industry will use to label that model. Can we book that model with that amazing scar on her left cheek. All models are different and the industry looks for all types. Some famous brands like to use the freaky or geeky type of models for their campaigns. I’m a portrait photographer.

Laura Hamilton says:

I would model, except I like food too much and have too much acne lol

model scouts are the creepiest people. I got scouted once, but I didn’t believe they were really model scouts. the people who get scouted on the street have some major TRUST they they wont get raped and murdered.
