How to become a model

How to become a Model...
It all starts with a model composite card

Whether you're a working or aspiring model, actor or other fashion or entertainment industry professional the power of good print and design is enormous. The first and most basic tool you will need is a printed card with a composite of your best images.  This is the Model Composite Card.  If you are an actor, you will also need a (8x10) actor headshot with your resume or other related information printed on the back.  OTL Graphics offers packages containing both.  Cilck here to view our combination packages. In order to break into the industry, a strong model composite card, or 8x10 headshot reproduction is essential.  You will need these to submit, introduce and showcase yourself to agents for representation as well as to present to casting directors and clients at your auditions.  Your printed model composite card or 8x10 headshot is your introduction to them.  Agents are the ones that will submit you for castings and auditions and you must establish relationships with them to gain exposure and have success.  In order to do that agents require that you submit your printed card (or 8x10 headshot) as an introduction to YOU. 
And you always want to have your model composite card or 8x10 headshot available at your auditions when the casting director or client asks you, "do you have a composite card or headshot?".  Providing your printed card leaves a lasting impression beyond just the 1's and 0's of digital submissions and can most times make the difference between being passed over and actually booking the job!
