I have been turnd down from two agencies in the past week because "they already have alot of girls on their books with the same look as me" I dont want a derastic change but can anyone suggest somthing I could do that will make me stand out. I dont know if my portfolio is to much of the same thing or if thats just a nice way of them saying you arent model material....... HELP!!!!

just keep trying and experimenting with shoots and different looks, you'll find the more work you try to do, that theyll take you more seriously?

my advice is get my wife to dye your hair red and re shoot a fashion set and a glamour set.

 

you're right there are lots of blondes out there with great looks and firm skin

I think you look great as you are and It's a shame to fix something that isn't broken. I know what you mean about getting told there are so many similar models out there. I've been turned down by two agencies for looking 'too mainsteam'.

I know in general agencies seem to be crying out for read heads so you could take the plunge and try a different hair colour.

I'm quite surprised.

If I were you I would persevere. You have the advantage of "d" cup natural boobs and apparently no tatoos, thats a great start.

Also, I dont think you have the "typical blond" look, but perhaps experiment with softer, more natural images which show of your natural prettyness to its best advantage. 

 

I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I would love to die my hair red but its actualy getting the courage to do it.

And yes, now looking at my pics I have noticed that maybe I should add a softer looking pic with less make-up.

Thanks for the advice everyone, it realy helped.

I wouldn't lose heart Natalie as even some of the so called supermodels were turned down by agencies prior to being accepted on to the books of others.  I actually feel your look to be different from many others and I'll let you into a little secret, you're actually on my favourites list as someone I wouldn't mind working with in the future.

Its good to hear comments like that from people who dont have to say it just because they are your mum or sister lol.

They typically get between 50 and 300 applications per day / week depending on who they are.

The one thing that gets you through the initial filters is the difference factor e.g. Does your folio look the same as everyone else or can you show a range of styles? 

Do you have image styles like 'Dear Deirdre' in The Sun rather than the standard lingerie pout?
Polka dot bikini / Retro glamour
Some GQ style glamour mixed with the Maxim and FHM....
