If you are new to modeling or maybe need a little refresher to prepare for this event, remember these great tips: [1]

OPEN CALLS:  Models attending open calls…please be on time.  And remember to either bring your portfolio or photos.  Composite cards are not necessary.  Always bring heels, minimum makeup and LEAVE YOUR PROBLEMS AT THE DOOR; meaning come with a beautiful personality and a warm smile.  Think of this as your most important job interview. 

You will only make ONE first impression.  Even though many bookers do not require a complete portfolio, others will only look at your book during an interview.  SO DON'T FORGET IT!!!  Think of it like school…those who showed up to class without their books and pencils did not succeed.  Put time into your portfolio/photos.  But most importantly, PUT TIME INTO YOUR APPEARANCE!!!  Dress to impress, and good luck!

MAILING PHOTOS: When an agency ask for photos mailed, its best to send your BEST three photos.  One should be at least a full body and one should be a good headshot.  Be sure to send the photos "Attention" whichever division you are wishing to work for.  Example..."Attn: Women Division" or "Attn: Mens Division".  Do not expect to get your photos back unless you include a self-addressed envelope.
