You have eliminated 99% of your publication possibilities by excluding adult levels. I will not cast or shoot for publication unless the model will work to adult levels in both stills and video.
Maybe 99% is somewhat of a hyperbole but the point still stands, IMO. The OP asked about her chance of getting published and wanting to maximise it. The majority of models do not work to adult levels; and that is fine and no model should be pressurised into working beyond her comfort zone. Because most models work below adult levels, there is far more competition in non-adult work and a far lower proportion of non-adult models can achieve publication than adult ones. The same applies to photographers. Let us say there are 1000 opportunities for non-adult and 1000 opportunities for adult (i.e. the same for each). There are 2000 contenders for the adult work and 10000 for the non adult. So the adult model gets a 1 in 2 chance of being published compared to the non-adult, who gets a 1 in 10 chance. Chance of publication does not just depend on how many publications there are. It depends on how many models are chasing the same jobs. The OP must make her own decision about what level she wants to work to. But chance of publication depends on the ratio between models and opportunities. And that ratio is more favourable in the adult market.Chrissie_RedHuh?! Thats like saying to a photographer "You wont get published unless you shoot adult" (99% is a massive percentage). What about all the newspapers/commercial shots/hairdressing magazines/car magazines/wedding mags/ fashion mags../Photography magazines. When I go into your average corner shop there is a far bigger selection of magazines on the lower 4 shelves than the top shelf.
Yes, but there is "publication" and "publication" There are maybe half a dozen adult websites and maybe the same number of adult magazines in the world from which a non-adult model may actually benefit positively from being published on or in, (and are of a standard that most models adult or non-adult wouldn't get the chance to pose for anyway) for the rest, the best advice is take the money and keep quiet about it unless you actually want to make a career as an adult model..and I suspect the OP does not. I think there are very few cases in which you could consider adult related material a true "publication" in the terms the OP meant..ClaypawsThe OP must make her own decision about what level she wants to work to.

Thank you for the advice and opinions guys now the big question,If I want to find a great photographer who does shoots for publication,can I put a casting up for that?or just search through them all?
hi all, well as a model one of my ultimate goals is to get published in some magazines...so i'd like some advice on how to maximise my chances of doing so please. I've been told to send images into every lad's mag/tattoo mag that has a 'bedroom babes/real girls' section?will that help? or do i just wait and hope i get noticed? lol any advice will be great,thank you
But hey, do you really want to be part of something that is dying a slow, tortured, agonising death?
