As a new model, it can be extremely difficult to get started. What is the best agency from my look? What avenues are the best to approach? Who can I trust?

This article will help you get a better understanding and idea on what it takes to get signed to a modeling agency as a new model in a major market that is New York.

If you are a teen model, it can often be overwhelming to get started. It is first very important to ensure that your family is on board when you are in search for agencies.
