About Model Open Calls

Open Calls entail modeling scouts meeting with aspiring models interested in a professional agency representation. Agency cannot guarantee that you will be offered a contract if you go to an Open Call. However, if you make an effort to attend an open call, you will have an opportunity to present yourself to a professional in the modeling industry. When a modeling scout meets you, they will make an assessment whether you have the right look for the type of clientele that the agency works with. If the agency is interested in offering you a contract, you will be contacted by a modeling agency representative at a later time. A modeling agency will usually get back with only those candidates whom they are interested in pursuing.

Remember, that a modeling agency does not usually encourage you to travel outside your area, as they have scouts who travel all over the country to conduct open calls. Modeling agencies hold events all over the country and you just need to keep your eyes open for future open calls coming to your area. As an alternative to attending an open call, you can submit photos of yourself online or via snail mail that will be viewed by modeling scouts.

If you have a portfolio, feel free to bring them to an Open Call you are attending, but this is usually not required. Pictures should give a good idea of what you really look like. Several types of images are a good way to show you from different perspectives. The types of images that you may want to submit include a face close-up with little to no makeup; a profile shot; a three-quarter shot; and a full-length photo of yourself in form-fitting clothing.

When you go to an open call, go easy on the makeup, as the modeling agency scouts want to see the “real” you.
