Getting Exposure as a Model

Many modeling agencies, especially in major markets like New York, specialize in only one particular look for their models. Some may only represent very high fashion models, and others may only represent commercial models. Others may only work with females, others focus on male models. If an agency is unable to sign you, don’t get discouraged; it’s important to get seen by as many agents as possible and on a routine basis. That is however, after you have the right experience and work under your belt. 

If you live in one of the major markets such as NYC, you may be able to attend an appointment or open casting at the agency.

Getting exposure is a very time-consuming and expensive if you are doing it freelance.

Become a Model in 2022

Modeling is more than a pretty face. It’s to simulate a consumer who represents the brand. To put it simply, a company hires a model to advertise their product or service. Advertising comes in many forms. When people think of modeling, many assume that you have to be very tall and very thin. While that is the norm for editorial models, who frequently work on runway shows and high end fashion lines, many models are actually commercial talent. Commercial talent is everything except editorial modeling and that represents over 90% of the models you see on TV and print today. There is a huge push for alternative models, which is a model with a unique look or feature.

While landing a modeling agency can provide management and exposure to major casting calls, models do not need a modeling agency to become successful. There are many platforms online that allow talent to access free casting calls as well as services such as Latitude Talent studios that connects talent with the resources and opportunities to get started. Latitude is not an agency and we do not find or promise work. We can however promise to make finding the opportunities to start easy. To become a model, upload your photograph here.

The Cost to Be a Model – Latitude Talent

Check

In the modeling industry, many models starting out are commercial print talent. Commercial print talent make up most of the modeling industry as they represent what we call “real people” castings. This makes starting out as a model or actor a fun hobby for most new comers.


To become a model, it takes time and a sense of being realistic. There is never a guarantee of landing jobs, any one that promises you that is not being honest. Also, anyone that says that modeling is free, is not accurate. Getting signed to an agency in 2021 takes more than luck, it takes being seen by the right people in the digital world, as many agencies no longer host open casting calls. In fact, IMG models stopped all open casting calls permanently according to their website.

To become a model, you have to get really good photographs. But that doesn’t mean you should spend thousands of dollars at one time. Another step could be to shop them to agencies. If you don’t hear back that is so very common, instead focus on landing casting calls online. Getting casting calls that match you is really hard and time consuming. Also, subscribing to a ton of websites is expensive and couple cost a model or actor hundreds a month. Using an easy platform like Latitude Talent can help beginner models get the tools and resources at the lowest cost possible in a New York market. In fact, photography is complimentary for new talent brought in from enrollment at meeting, making it a great way to build your portfolio starting out. Want to start out, the first step is coming in to learn and see if you are right for what our service can offer. If you are looking for an agency or a company to manage you on a commission, Latitude is not for you. If you are looking for a service to help you get access to to opportunities, Latitude Talent is a great first step in the right direction.
