Anyone looking to become a model is immediately wondering what are the best and real ways to get started as a model in New York. You have a couple of options, either find an local photographer to blow money on (not the best idea unless you know what you are doing) or seek out a talent agency to get representative. Unless you are the 5% of talent that actually have the exact look for a modeling agency, you are going to have to start working from the bottom up to get started.
Any model or actor that says getting started is as easy as contacting a local agent who will do all the work for you is lying (and isn’t a signed model.) Why would any one invest money in a person who has no experience? Anything worth having is worth investing in.
