Let’s have a look at the 3 ways, their advantages and disadvantages, in detail.
Scouting on the road or instagram
The most direct and immediate way to a new contract in Los Angeles is to be discovered by one of the model agency Scouts.
The very first step is a visit to our agency, here you will meet our model bookers and we will get to know you. Here it is no longer «only» primarily about height, weight, proportions, but about motivation and sympathy. This is the fastest way of all, that’s why it is described quickly.
You have been written to on Instagram?

Online application with Polaroids
The best way for you is to apply online. Here you can check quickly, free of charge and without obligation whether your type is currently being sought in our agency portfolio.
The online application is completed in a few seconds, all you need are a few contact details and Polaroids. What this is, you can read here!

You only have to fill in a few details, e.g. your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and e-mail address and your height. In addition you send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo. A good description of how you take your photos can be found in the link above.
Open Model Agency Casting
Way number 3, to become a model, are open agency castings, which are offered from time to time. E.g. in the context of the Fashion Week. With us in Los Angeles you will get more frequent model casting dates in the near future.
How does an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many people as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone by photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively complex for model agencies to organize. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worth to organize such live castings, because as described above, it is called to know the people even better!
Queue – at open castings there is often a bigger queue if 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It is best to relax, find a comfortable place and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.
