Where Do Model Scouts Look for New Models?

So, I go to a lot of conventions & to model agents in different countries. I bring the international girls back and, develop the new faces here in London.

That question (about scouting) is really difficult, because I get that a lot. But, because I’ve been doing it for quite a while now, I know every girl is different.

What Model Scouting Reps Look For..

So, it’s the kind of girl that you see when they walk into a room and, you’re like oh, that girl’s lovely!

Some girls are a lot more physically pretty. And, others have something more unusual about them.

Also, personality is a massive thing as well. When girls are slightly shy, it is my job to bring that out of them.

How to Contact Model Scouts – And, Keep Your Look Simple!

One thing I would say is; Girls, please please send me pictures without any makeup. Oh, with natural hair just tied back into a barn.

Always be natural. I want to see girls for how they are. Don’t make those rookie modeling mistakes like so many others in this business.

I’ve scouted girls:

  • in the gym
  • at festivals

I seek out girls first thing in the morning, when they’ve just got up and they’re still in jamás.

So, I don’t need to see girls full makeup and fancy hair. So, just stay very natural.

Selfie Modelling Pictures?

The best thing I recommend is, start off by sending something like a selfie into Snapchat. Then, I will go through all the Snapchats once a day.

And, if I think you’ve got potential from Snapchat, I will send you a message. Just email me on my email address and I will get back to you with all the relevant information on how to move forward.

Modelling Careers – Is This What You Really Want?

We put a lot of work into each model. So, the last thing you want is a model coming in that sounds really good. And then, six months down the line, they’re like; “Oh, actually I don’t really want to model anymore.” Or, modeling’s not really for me.

So, you really need to think about if modeling is what you want. Because, it is a life career decision. It’s like, some people think oh, modeling I can do that.

Keep Your Model Career in Perspective..

Finally, in model scouting, I never take a girl out of school for modelling, or anything like that.

Instead, we have a plan a career plan. In modeling, you need to really be focused and make sure this is something you want to do.

A career in modeling can be great! You can travel & meet new people, You know, it’s hard work, but what you get out of it is amazing!
