How to become a model at 13 years: Modeling kids

As you can read in our detailed article on modeling at the age 14, it is very important that you have time to model. As long as you’re still in school, you’re distracted by many other important things and you still can not concentrate on modeling. Our recommendation as a modeling agency, patience! Try to get good grades and be diligent at school. Because the more diligent you are and the better your grades are, the more freedom you get from your school when it’s time to graduate. As a model, you sometimes have to travel and spend a day or two on the road. Of course you can not go to school during this time, so it is very important that you have a good relationship with your school and your teachers.

Wait until you are 14, 15 or 16 years old

Wait another year and then you can send your first model application. Depending on how long your school is, it’s best not to apply to an agency until the school is over 2 years old. During these two years, you can build your model portfolio in peace with test shoots by professional photographers. Test shoots are important to make your portfolio as diverse as possible. Ideally, you can show different facets of yourself so customers can introduce themselves to you in their clothing. At some point you will also do your first sports shoot, your first family shoot and your first fashion movie. With each step you become more professional. However, since the construction takes a lot of time, you should think well about when you start in a modeling agency. If you start early and then have no time or have to cancel frequently, it will not be very positive for your model agent and sooner or later he will prefer other models. So that does not happen, you should only go to a modeling agency when you are 14 or 15 years old and the school is over at.

What measures do you need as a model?

The dimensions for models differ depending on whether it is a job in advertising or in fashion. When it comes to fashion, the fashion designers are much stricter, here are fashion collections cut to a certain size and you should have this large in the ideal case. For women that means a minimum height of 174cm, even better 177 or 178cm. For men, a minimum size of 185cm, so they are on average ten centimeters larger than the women. More about dimensions for models.

Do it yourself: Bust, Waist, Hips and Height

These are the measurements points for your first modeling agency application. Take care, that you are totally honest. More about: Take your own measurements for agencies, castings and jobs.
