Getting an Agency as a Petite Model
The way it is: All of the major “Fashion” agencies primarily have amazon models that are 5’7″ and taller. “Industry Standards” Height and Professional Modeling part two
The commercial print agencies in the “major markets” (CA, IL, NY, FL) usually have a variety of heights and some exceptions for petite models 5’5″ tall and over.
The agencies based in medium and smaller cities are generally “hybrids,” booking commercial or fashion print work, which sets their baseline needs. Typically they have more petite models, but be careful these agents don’t operate like the mainstream agents ( ex. Ford, Elite, Wilhelmina) guidelines. You may find yourself paying for consultant fees, photo fees, modeling school, casting fees and so on to help keep them in business. Don’t get taken.
