I have heard someday one sentence that the great picture is a mix of 90% of model, 5% of photographer's experience and 5% of good luck!

That is a joke but that is true!!!

When you have pictures in your portfolio with very nice models that means the level of your photography. Like your lighting, style of picture, like dresses and accessories on the model, like very sophisticated post processing. All these things means your ability to find and to work with both models and other crew taking part in your projects.

Sometime photographer thinks that some day in the future he will get access to high level models. Thinking that it is not now, not today! Sometimes in the future. And searching on Facebook, Modelmayhem and other websites for models getting just amateur models, not good models and girls thinking they are models. And this level will never transform to next level by itself. You always will have models from such resources and you will never find there someone you need for high level photography. You have to brake it.

All you have to do is to go to modelling agencies and ask them for models. Sure the first model you get will not be the best model in the world, but doing step by step you will climb on the mountain of success.

Every agency needs tests for models. For new models, for experienced models and even for top models. And if they like you pics, believe me, very soon you will get model you couldn't dream about before. They need pictures, you need great models in your picture. And ask them for model for your beauty and fashion projects, editorial and art works.

That's why you have to know this list of the leading modelling agencies in New York.

Not to get work there, but to get the new level of your photography.

But who knows. May be your pictures will be so cute that you get work of making tests for those agencies.

Good luck! And good models!
