There are mainly two types of modeling, fashion modeling and commercial modeling. Depending upon the modeling scope the requirements of the models vary. The modeling agencies have some kind of norms for their models in each of their campaign.
Hire a professional photographer and discuss with him that you want to make a model profile. Discuss different style and dress code, pose etc beforehand. Most professional photographers having experience in modeling industry will guide you through the photo shoot. So you made an album of your photographs. Create a website and host your album with your detailed profile.
Now collect the contact details of many modeling agencies in your area and email them with few of your photos and your web site address. Most of the time, if the modeling agency is looking for a new model, they themselves will come to you for a photo shoot else ask you to visit their office in person because some agencies want to see the model in person so that they can judge well where to fit you, because they know their business well than you and your photographer.
The most effective way is the open call. When an agency advertise for models and allow anyone to show up for an interview. In such cases, don't miss the opportunity and positively attend the interview with your album. Top modeling agencies are generally located in top fashion capital since there is more exposure and demand. Boutique modeling agencies are a little bit smaller agencies which operates in a single city with few agents.
Get through the interviewing process, some times few more photo shoots based on their current requirement. If luck favors you, you are signed for a contract with the agency. Best of luck in your modeling career.
