Be Accessible

In the new age of digital scouting. For an aspiring model, accessibility should be a priority. It needs to be done right. You should know how to speak and you should be easy to talk to when you are contacted by real agents & scouts. You can't afford to miss a legitimate modeling agent/scout DM.  But, make sure you revert to a legitimate modeling agent or scout. Don’t let your excitement get the better of you. 

Fakers often start out by asking for bikini shots. They are not legitimate agents. Once they know you are willing to do that; they will ask you to send nude photos. Don’t ever do this! It can have serious consequences. When you do this, what happens to it and where it goes next is often out of your control.  

Never meet an agent/scout alone or outside their office

If an agent or scout wants to meet you in person and you are unsure who you are meeting or you are meeting with the unknown agent for the first time, it is best that you don’t go alone. Make sure that you take someone with you or meet them at their known office address or in a public place.
