I get asked daily about how to become a plus model and it is because of that, we have a dedicated Modeling 101 column in every issue as well as weekly Modeling 101 posts on the blog and an entire section on the blog focused on becoming a plus model. We also always ask in interviews with our featured models, what advice they would offer aspiring models.

This is our way of arming aspiring models with information to take with them and pursue their dreams of modeling. We always preach that doing your research is key in kicking off your career.

With that said, this month, we talk about what you need to know about being a signed model. It seems like the ultimate goal for most aspiring models is to get signed to an agency. Being signed with an agency certainly will open up doors for you that may not have been so easy to get through previously, but your work does not stop once you sign on the dotted line.

We answer questions and offer tips on topics such as:

  • What does an agency do for you as a model?
  • Client relationships
  • Your relationship with your booker/agent
  • And more!

We also have three tips from Julie Lewis at Dorothy Combs Models on how to be a successful signed model! This is a must-read if you’re seeking information on plus modeling.
