Model Signup 2017-12-02T01:24:07+00:00
Shortly after uploading my son Niles’ photos to ModelScouts we were on our way to New York to meet agents! Since then, Niles has worked for Disney, The Lion King, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne, Army Wives & on the hit show This is Us. ModelScouts changed the life of my son and our entire family! Niles Fitch signed to: WILHELMINA MODELS, NYC
I submitted my photos to ModelScouts, and even though I was living overseas at the time, I was signed to major agencies in New York, Paris, Milan & LA. I have worked for Project Runway, Models of the Runway, Chanel, Dior, Coach, YSL, Gucci and more! Celine C. signed to: NEW YORK MODELS, LA MODELS, METROPOLITAN PARIS, WHYNOT MILAN
I started with just snapshots, no experience and a dream. I decided to give ModelScouts a try and now I’m a professional model and have worked in LA, Singapore & Japan. I’ve booked jobs for Chanel, Dior, Orly, BedHead, Sony, David LaChapelle, Jeremy Scott, and more all thanks to ModelScouts! Laura L. signed to ELITE MODELS, LA MODELS, DIVA SINGAPORE, ZEM OSAKA
WHAT IS THE PHOTO SUBMIT SERVICE? 2017-10-21T11:01:00+00:00

The Photo Submit Service is our most popular option and will give you the extra exposure you need to get the attention of top agents and scouts.

LET US DO THE WORK FOR YOU!

Our professional staff will do all the work for you by preparing and presenting your photos to international modeling agents and scouts representing over 250 of the industry’s top agencies in all of the major markets, including, New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Milan, London, Germany, Greece, Spain, Australia, Tokyo, Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, Korea and more.

GET RESULTS WITHIN TEN BUSINESS DAYS!

Once your photos have been reviewed, we will upload a report of the agency responses to your account within 10 business days. Should an agency express an interest in representing you we will provide you with professional advice and guidance at no extra charge to you.

DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS? 2017-09-12T11:28:18+00:00

No. You do not need professional photos to join ModelScouts.

Regular snapshots are just fine. Even “selfies” shot in the mirror can work.

Try to include at least one clear face shot and one body shot so the agents, scouts and clients can get a good sense of who you are.

WHY DO I NEED AN ONLINE PORTFOLIO? 2017-09-15T08:57:04+00:00

Agents and scouts visit ModelScouts.com every day searching for new models to be represented by their agencies.

By having your modeling profile online at ModelScouts you create a sense of urgency in the agents and scouts to sign you before another agent snaps you up! We’ve heard countless stories from our models who, even after submitting their photos to agencies themselves, didn’t get signed until they were on ModelScouts. We love that!

By having an online profile in the same place as all the agents and scouts you significantly increase your exposure and opportunities for getting discovered and signed by these agencies. Having an online profile at ModelScouts is much more efficient and cost-effective than mailing photos to agencies, having a separate website, or trying to email hundreds of agencies yourself.

ARE THERE ANY AGE, HEIGHT OR SIZE REQUIREMENTS? 2017-09-15T09:03:31+00:00

We accept aspiring models of all ages, sizes and heights.

Many of the modeling agencies we work with have commercial modeling, plus size, petite, and child modeling divisions in addition to their fashion divisions.

We welcome male models, female models, petite and plus size models, mature models, child and infant models. No modeling experience required.

WHY IS THERE A FEE TO JOIN? I WAS TOLD NEVER TO PAY AN AGENCY. 2017-09-15T09:06:39+00:00

ModelScouts.com is a model scouting company, we are not an agency.

We provide a service, in which, you will receive exposure to the industry’s most reputable modeling agents and scouts. We do the work for you so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you are working with legitimate modeling companies.

Moreover, other scouts or managers can impose a management fee up to 20% over and above the 20% that the agencies will deduct from your modeling income. That can add up to 40% of your income being deducted and that’s before taxes. We don’t think that’s fair!

Rather than take a management fee from your income, we offer a very affordable flat rate starting at $99 to a maximum of $139 for you to create your modeling profile and get the exposure you need to top agencies. In addition to your professional modeling profile, and incredible exposure, you will also benefit from our 35+ years experience in the areas of promotion, contract negotiations, international and mother agency relations, travel arrangements, overseas accommodations, and work visa’s in foreign countries, all at no extra charge. We have no extra management fees, commissions, hidden charges or monthly charges. The amount you see on our site is the maximum cost you will ever have with us.

WHAT IS YOUR GUARANTEE? 2017-09-12T12:19:41+00:00

When you choose the Photo Submit Service we guarantee your photos will be reviewed and evaluated by the industry’s top modeling agents and scouts representing over 250 top international modeling agencies, and the results of your Photo Submit Report will be completed and uploaded to your account within 10 business days from the date of submission.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER FEES? 2017-09-15T09:09:40+00:00

NO. There are no other fees other than those posted on this page.

We DO NOT charge monthly or reoccurring fees.

We DO NOT automatically charge your credit card when your account expires. If you wish to renew your account you can do so manually within your account.

We DO NOT take a percentage of your income from you when you start working.

WHAT METHOD OF PAYMENT CAN I USE? 2017-09-15T09:13:55+00:00
