We have compiled the following questions based on what we are asked most frequently. If you have any other questions please reach out to us at [email protected].

Do I need professionally shot images to apply?
You don’t need professionally shot images or a portfolio of expensive headshots to apply! Your submission will allow us to see you as a blank canvas. You should take your photos for submission in natural lighting with a plain backdrop. We’ll ask you to wear something simple and form-fitting like jeans paired with a t-shirt - no makeup, no baggy clothing, and no poses. Your background should be free of clutter and the focus should be on you! You can take your photos for submission at home with your smartphone with the assistance of someone you are comfortable with, such as your parents, siblings, friends, or tripod!

Do I need professionally shot walking video to apply?
You don't need a professionally shot walking video. We require a walking to see how you move. It is not meant to be a runway walk - just walk naturally. We recommend that you wear a basic white t-shirt and skinny jeans. Good natural outdoor light and a smartphone is more than adequate for this 15 to 40 second video. You can take your walking video with the assistance of someone you are comfortable with, such as your parents, siblings, friends, or tripod!

Do I need professionally shot personality video to apply?
You don't need a professionally shot personality video. Tell us something about yourself as person - we want to know you and see you talk. Your skills, hobby, some funny story - get creative and have fun. You can take this 15 to 40 second video with your smartphone with the assistance of someone you are comfortable with, such as your parents, siblings, friends, or tripod!

Do you have an age requirement?
We do not have an age requirement to submit, but please note that we do not represent children.

Do you have a height requirement?

Do you have a curve division?
We celebrate beauty in all its diversity and represent models of all shapes and sizes. We have a body positive and size inclusive curve division where models can work at any size.

Do you represent models who identify as transgender or non-binary?
We pride ourselves on celebrating beauty in all its diversity. We represent models of all gender identities, including those who identify as trans or non-binary.
