nb:- TF - TRADE FOR (eg free editted high resolution pictures in return for makeup or modelling)
The answer is never that simple. It depends on a range of factors:
- What kind of modelling do you want to do? Fashion, Glamour, Beauty? Plus Size?
- Are you entering the Western mainstream or Asian?
- How tall are you? Are you tall enough for the ramp?
- How good is your skin?
- Do you have professional pictures? (No, mobile uploads will not do!)
- How old are you?
- How realistic are you?
- Are you thick skinned enough to take several rejections?
- How strict are you with your diet / exercise?
- How dedicated or hard working are you?
- Have you ever tried a professional agency?
