WE HAVE CLOSED COMMENTS ON THIS PAGE. PLEASE use our Contact Page to get help with your modelling career.

Celeste Voges modelBefore you contact our office for help, please read through every article below and on this entire page. Also read the comments from other girls who want to become a model. Make sure your you send all your measurements up front. We’ll reply back requesting two of your best photos – one full length and one close-up of your face.

Learning how to become a model is the first step in living your dreams. Every day you see fresh faces and old faces on the covers of magazines. And you may dream of seeing your own face in those magazines. Be warmed this can be a very harsh industry based only on what you look like. Be prepared for a lot of rejection and don’t give up easily.


The first step you have to take is finding a good agent. They will send you to castings, get you a portfolio and market you to clients. In South Africa Star Model Management (Tansey Coetzee, Christina Storm), Ice Model Management (Tanit Phoenix, Tatum Keshwar) and G3 (Adele Segal, Michelle Wallace) are reputable agencies. You can read through a full list of agencies on this page.

Be wary if an agency asks you to pay money to join them. When they take you on their books its because they believe you will work and make money. If they want you to pay, that may be a warning sign you cannot ignore.


After deciding which agency you’d like to go with take some photographs. These should be as natural looking photographs with your hair out of your face and as little make up as possible. Take two photos of your face, one facing the camera and one in profile. Do the same with the full length photos. The agency will let you know if you suit the look and the type of model that they have on their books. If not, don’t stress, there are a ton of other agencies to go to.

Once you hear back from the agency and are going in to meet them make sure you wear something that is flattering and comfortable. It’s best to keep it simple, jeans, a white tee and heels or wedges for girls and jeans and a white shirt for guys. Don’t feel pressure to dress up or cake your face in make up, the agency wants to see you and your natural beauty not a poppie covered in base and seven colours of makeup.


Once the agency accepts you, you will take portfolio pictures with a professional photographer, make up artist and stylist. The portfolio will show potential clients the different looks that you can pull of. We recommend that you take some good photos to send to agencies, not from your cellphone. You need something better. Please contact our office for a recommendation on a photographer in your area.


After you shoot and get pictures taken for your portfolio you will start going to see clients from magazines, agencies and start attending castings. Make sure you know the brief and stick to to it, attend the casting on time and be well presented.If you are not getting booked for jobs, its because you don’t fit the part that the client is looking for.

Decide early on what type of model you’d like to be. You can focus on commercial, ramp, lingerie. Discuss this with your agency. Also decide what you are comfortable doing and what you are not. Inform them so they are not blindsided if a job comes up that you are not interested in doing because of your religious beliefs or principles. Posing in a bikini, relaxing your hair, kissing someone are all scenarios that you may face. It’s ok to not want to do anything that makes you uncomfortable, just let your agency know.


As a model, your face and body play a large role in the jobs you’re getting. Make sure you are eating healthy, working out to stay toned and looking after your skin . Being a model can be great lifestyle, very fun, exciting and allow you the opportunity to travel. It can also make you neurotic, and have self loathing issues. Think about your own personality and whether you would be despondent by rejection and constantly being judged about your looks.

    I want to become a model but don’t have a portfolio please help

    • <path_to_url> Ramon Thomas

      You must find a photographer to take some high quality photo for of your before we can consider you. Some agencies will pay for your portfolio but then they own it not you. Sign-up to Modelbase because you’ll many offers for photos from photographers who need experience.

      • <path_to_url> Ramon Thomas

        Ayanda the best thing you can is enter competitions and pageants. You need to get a basic portfolio shoot done and send the best possible photos to agencies. What experience do you have?

    Hi, I’ve had a little experience modelling and would like to continue when I start uni in PE next month..however it doesn’t seem like there are many agencies with offices there. Are there any reputable ones you know of?

    • <path_to_url> Ramon Thomas

      Julie, you must contact my friend Delon Marc who worked on Eastern Cape Fashion Week when it was hosted on the Boardwalk Casino in 2009. Anyway I suggest you do your 2nd and 3rd year studies in Cape Town or Johannesburg (better for Black girls). There is no need to stay in a city where you have limited options.

    • <path_to_url> Ramon Thomas

      Shorter girls usually focus on photographic modeling for magazines. Shashi Naidoo is about 1.65m and she was too short for Miss SA I believe. Make sure you have no skin problems in your face, and have some good photos taken.

    I’m 1,5 was wondering would I be able to become a model because of my height and how do I become a model?

    • <path_to_url> RJ Thomas

      No, you will not become a model at 1.5m tall. That is even shorter than the shortest models like Shashi Naidoo. If you are serious about trying, enter some beauty pageants in your area and see if you can get to top 10 or higher positions.

  66. <path_to_url> Thando Khumalo

    Is it possible to become a model if you are a size 34? Because most agencies are always looking for size 28 or 30? If they are can you please tell me a few agencies please?

    • <path_to_url> RJ Thomas

      Yes, there are many female models with 34 or bigger cup size. Look at the ones who are in Wonderbra and Woolworth lingerie.
