When beginning a career as a model it is essential to get the most exposure to the best agents and scouts as possible.
What does it take to become a model?
Models are scouted because they are unusually tall as well as being slim, and physically fit. You have to be fit and healthy to sustain a career in modelling.
Do you have to be tall to be a fashion model?
Yes (see Getting Started as a model) If you see someone advertising for models and saying height is not important, don't believe it: they are probably only after your money (see rogue agencies).
Does it cost a lot of money to be a model?
As a model you are self-employed. You need your 'tools of the trade': photographs, index cards, a portfolio, representation on an agency's website etc. If you are not living at home you will need rent for accommodation and money for living expenses and traveling around. A good agent who believes in you may advance some of these expenses and reclaim them over time from what you earn.
