    Be thin, tall, photogenic and have connections.

    Never do anything that you have to pay for, being a model is a job and you should get paid for it. If a “modelling agency” asks for your money it’s a scam.

    What’s your height? Most agencies don’t book girls under 5”8’ but if you a special look that they like exceptions could be made.

    Try looking on websites like Models 1, a lot of them have online applications available that give you tips. Maybe get some headshots taken if you don’t have a good quality camera. Depending on where you live there may be local modelling agencies where you could start out doing small scale stuff like catalogue.

    If they didn’t fit the general standard, probably instagram. Quality photos and building a large following would generate interest from clients and get work, but it really depends on the person and how good they look in pictures!

    Plus sized girls have their own scene but apart from that if you don’t fit the mould (e.g. height) you don’t get in.
