How to Start a Teen Modeling Career


Get permission from your parents. Minors need their parents' permission to get into the modeling industry. Otherwise, you will have to wait until you're 18 years old. Talk to your parents and help them understand your goals. Ask their opinions about your mission to start a modeling career. Comply with their requests and try to answer any concerns they may have.


Set realistic expectations. Boost your confidence level before you pursue modeling. The modeling industry can be picky. The look that is hot now can be lukewarm a month from now. There's no guarantee of success, no matter how beautiful, tall or personable you are.


Research the different types of modeling. For example, runway models are usually tall and thin. There's a place for different body types in the modeling world. Some agencies hire fitness, petite and plus size models. Some also hire for commercials, catalog or advertising work. Commercial models come in all shapes and sizes.


Hire a professional photographer to take create a modeling portfolio for you. A portfolio is a collection of head and full-body shots. Portfolios are used to present to modeling agencies and at casting calls. It gives the agency a chance to see your different looks.


Hire an agent. Visit local and national agencies, such as John Robert Powers and Barbizon, to inquire about representation. Evaluate the experience, connections and knowledge of a modeling agency. Your parents must be present at any agency interviews, and you will need your parents to sign contracts.


Maintain and continuously improve your personal appearance. Keep your body toned and go to the gym regularly. When you interview at modeling agencies and casting calls, remember to style your hair, manicure nails and wear natural-looking makeup.


Attend casting calls and auditions. Don't be disappointed if you are refused. Remember that when one door closes, another opens. Send your portfolios to different agencies and casting directors. Apply online to modeling agencies and submit your portfolio. Use the internet to market yourself as a model.
