Answering a Reader Question #76
um i m 14 and i went to this agency and they said that they cant do a photoshoot wit my braces on they said i had great looks and i should come back when i get them off:( well idk i m just kinda confused cuz i want to start my modelling career as soon as possible:)
reply back thanks:)
Hey, Anonymous! To clear up the confusion, the agency likes your look but will only work with you after you have gotten your braces off. So for now you won't be able to do any modeling work with them, including photoshoots, until your braces come off. Unfortunately, there is no way around that. Even though you may want to start your career asap, as my post "Modeling with Braces" stated, there isn't much you can do since the demand for models with braces isn't high. You're more marketable to an agency if you have your braces off.
So in your situation you have one of two options:
1) Wait until your braces come off and then contact the agency in order to officially begin your modeling career with them.
2) Submit yourself (with your braces) to other modeling agencies and see if any of them will be willing to sign you as you are now.
Either way it turns out, good luck!
