2018 Model Guide for New York Models

So you want to become a model? Well the search to get started hasn’t changed that much for 2018. In fact, more and more modeling agencies are focusing on strictly digital platforms which can help a beginner make getting started In the entertainment industry a little bit easier.

What hasn’t changed in becoming a model, especially in a major market such as New York, is the strict specifications that high-end editorial agencies place on new talent. As you will find from most top agencies, including Ford Models and Next Models, they require female models to be at least 5’9 in height or taller. For male editorial models, the height is typically 6’1 or taller. What many male models face when they start attending open casting calls and seeking out agencies, is that being too tall can actually hurt you.

Having a beautiful face is what many people assume makes a great model. While commercial talent typically have a marketable look which is the direct result from having nice facial features, it is important to be sure that a model has the specifications that a particular client is looking for. When attending a casting call for this example let’s use a brand such as Abercrombie and Fitch, before you would even see the casting call client, they would require you to attend a model fitting. This is to be sure that the model attending the casting call actually fits in the clothing. If they do not fit those specifications during the model fitting, they will typically not even be able to complete the casting call.

For a beginner model it is important to equally focus on maintaining your look as well as enhancing your body. Regularly attending the gym and eating healthy are prime ways to get in fighting shape.

It is important to remember that body type and size is not all that matters when becoming a model. Personality is key, no client, big or small, wants to work with a model or after that has a negative attitude. While it is important to remain confident, it is important to be humble and respectful of the casting clients time. Always attend casting calls on time, not too early and be prepared to meet a variety of people. Casting calls rarely have one or two people in attendance expect dozens if not more.
