I am 30, although I look younger, well known agencies haven't responded..only smaller ones. I got previous comments such as "I need more expression in my face". Although this is very true (one beach shoot in portfolio I had to look directly at sun whole time, and I didn't get my guidance in expression/knew it was an area to work on previously shoots). I absolutely do not mind gettin more practice in the expression area SO LONG AS THE COMMENT REALLY DOESN'T MEAN "nice body, busted face". I have a good full time career, so l obviously I don't want to waste more time, if I don't have a chance in a good agency (not small). So please be honest, would practicing expression and getting high quality photos actually increase my chance to a possibility in a successful agency?
Not having an agency, not spending a lot of your time, not spending your money and or resources, or not putting in a lot of effort on your part will result in you probably not succeeding at doing this full-time ....or at all.
And understand even if you did provide all of the above there would still be no guarantees
You're 30, so you don't have a chance with a good agency (unless you want to do commercial, and it's still extremely unlikely).
If you enjoy modeling, you can freelance, or do it as a hobby. It's not a waste of time unless you don't enjoy it. If you're only interested in modeling because you're hoping to "make it big" with a good agency, than yes, you are definitely wasting your time.
I have a trip to Philly coming up next month and actually looked at your profile. The thing that made me not want to email you was this bold statement in the middle of your profile:
HOWEVER I ONLY WORK WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO DO TOUCH UPS AND PROVIDE MAKEUP ARTIST AND HAIR STYLIST.
I take the pix and edit them. But I'm not paying for a makeup artist and hair stylist. Look at my port. None of the women I've shot with have had hair and make up. That "requirement" from you is rather offsetting.
