This week’s question is…

Q: How Often Should I Be Submitting Images/Information to Agencies?

A: My suggestion is to send snap shots to agencies every four (4) months. Your snap shots should be clear and taken with good light. Do not send blurry or dark pictures. Do not wear a lot of makeup. You should wear stretch pants or jeans with a tank top. Take shots against a white or light-colored wall and make sure the light in the room is hitting you and not behind you. You should also take some shots from the side. Try to accurately measure yourself (bust, waist, hips) and send that information in, along with your height. Good luck!
