Hi all,

I'm wondering, should I continue the "modeling" business.
I keep getting shot down by offices due to, my likely, my length..
I'm 1 meter 72 centimeters.. So, by the modeling "standards" I think that I'm like, 10 centimeters short... No?

Also, I like, totally don't have any clue on which path I should go, fashion, commercial,... Totally a starter over here... So critique/advice is surely appreciated!

if your short, dont bother with fashion. and good luck in commercial, which is the only thing i see you as, but thats where your port is heavily leaning.

I must thank you for your reply jesse.
Yeah I already thought so that my length would be an issue..

So commercial would be my best bet? Any other aisles I could try to approach?

Fashion may be a bit more challenging due to height issues, but you do have a good look for it, so you may be able to do some fashion.

You might be okay with commercial, but you don't look very stereotypical, so that's a maybe. You have a very strong Latin romantic look.

Try action, athletic, or something that involves motion capture, since you are thin and have good lines.

Thanks for your reply there!

I haven't thought about that venture... As you say, I am thin so I might have a shot for that!

Thanks for your response!!! :-)
