Petite Modelling

You might not think that petite modelling is a tough industry to break into. But it is. Especially because most of the modelling agencies usually represent models there are at least 5 feet and 9 inches tall.

However, if you have a pretty face, nice skin, a good bone structure and good teeth, but you just don't qualify for the strict standards of most modelling agencies have you might consider petite modelling.

Most of the work in the petite modelling industry involves close up pictures of the face, hands, feet or other body parts instead of the body as a whole. So bare in mind that fashion is not an option!

To find out if you have any chance of success as a petite model you need to get an evaluation from an agency or someone who has contact with clients within the industry. This will tell you if you have the look that their clients are hiring at the moment.

If you are told you just don't have the right look at the moment don't worry. Give it a six month break and try again. The modelling industry moves at a fast pace, and what's not in now could be the rave in the next 6 months.

Also keep in mind that the models in this segment of the market are often paid very well because advertisers usually focus more on the look of the models face than her figure. Advertisers usually have more money to spend than many clients in the fashion industry.

If you think you have what it takes, do your research, find agencies that work with petite models, apply with the correct pictures and keep fighting for your place in the industry.
