Other Important Info
Breaking into the modeling industry can be an exciting but often frustrating experience for aspiring models. Competition is fierce in the industry and modeling agencies literally receive millions of photos each year from new models who want to be the next Giselle or Cindy Crawford.
Modeling agencies are so swamped with photos that several agencies have admitted to us that they don’t even open the envelopes or emails of photos they receive unless it is from an established scout or agency with whom they already have an established relationship. This way they know that the photos they receive have been screened, professionally presented and there is a good chance they will be interested in the new model being shown to them.
The staff at Xposuremodeling.com are the most experienced and knowledgeable in the modeling and fashion industries. We are committed professionals who have worked as international model agents, scouts, photographers, makeup artists and stylists and each have a minimum of 10 years experience developing, managing and placing models with international agencies. Our combined experience is over 175 years! That is a lot experience working on your behalf.
Our staff come from a variety of locations and understand the in’s and out’s of working in all the foreign markets including New York, Los Angeles, Japan, Taipei, Paris, Milan, London, Korea, Singapore, Barcelona, Australia and Germany.
Unlike many online scouting services that post your photos online with the hope that an agent might come by and stumble across your photos, Xposuremodeling.com guarantees that your photos will be viewed immediately by professional agents and scouts representing over 100 of the world’s leading modeling agencies and have the ability to sign new models with these agencies.
You may submit your photos by email or mail.
Professional photos are not required, however if you have them by all means you may submit them. We accept professional photos or snapshots. Photos can be all black and white or all color or a combination of both. Please try to submit at least one headshot and one body shot.
Submitting your photos to the agents and scouts through Xposures.ca is quick and easy!
Step one is to submit your stats and contact information through our Registration Form. Once you have submitted your information you are ready to submit your photos to us by email or mail.
Professional photos are not required; however, if you have them by all means please submit them. We accept professional photos or simple snapshots. Your photos can be all black and white or all color or a combination of both.
There is no limit on the number of photos you can send but we recommend a minimum of two photos and no more than ten. Agents and scouts can determine if they are interested in you in the first 2 photos they see. If they would like more photos they will request them.
If you have tearsheets from actual work you have done then please send them all. If you are new to the industry and are sending snapshots then 3 or 4 photos is usually plenty.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when submitting your photos.
• Submit clear photos that are in focus.
• Submit at least one headshot and a full length shot.
• Keep make-up to a minimum.
• Keep hairstyles simple and well groomed.
• Keep clothing simple and in good taste.
• When submitting your photos by regular mail please include your name, stats, phone number and email address on the back of each photo.
• When submitting your photos by email please put your name in the subject line.
• Please submit photos that are in good taste. First impressions are important.
• Pay attention to the background in your photos. Try to shoot photos against a plain wall or outdoors.
• If you are comfortable in a swimsuit try to include a swimsuit shot.
• Kids should be natural and look like regular kids. Please do not dress children up in fancy clothes, use make-up or make them look like beauty pageant contestants.
• Please don’t submit photos of you wearing fur. Several of the agents we work with find the use of fur offensive. Don’t risk turning the agents off by wearing fur. Besides, it is difficult to see your body type if it is covered up by a fur coat.
• Please do not send nudes. Modeling agencies DO NOT want to see you naked.
• Please do not send original photos by mail. We do not return photos.
We look forward to receiving your photos!

Yes, you can. But, did you know that photos mailed or emailed to the top international agencies are rarely opened or end up in the garbage within seconds of being opened. We have signed numerous models to top agencies who were ignored when they sent their photos to agencies on their own.
As a new model you have about 5 seconds to get the attention of a busy agent. If they aren’t interested in you in a split-second then your opportunity with that agency is over. Agents also prefer to work with other agents and have a liaison between them and the model in the beginning. They know that our experienced staff will help with the time-consuming work of getting the model prepared so he or she is ready to work as soon as possible.
The staff at Xposuremodeling.com take the time to carefully look over every single photo sent to us. If you are selected by an international agency, we will spend the time necessary to help you start your career.
