Ethnic Models

Dear Ethnic Models,
I was recently asked how ethnic models can get ahead.

I think one thing to keep in mind is that most ad campaigns like to include ALL races, colors and this means the chances to get work are higher.

Pay attention to ad campaigns, most ads and commercials always have an ethnic model/actor in the shot.

I think beyond hair magazines, sexy men's magazines, there is also
Latina Magazine
Heart and Soul Magazine
O magazine
Self magazine
Allure magazine

And All of beauty magazines have work for the ethnic models.

Focus on getting a nice headshot and then a shot of you in a dress or jeans natural, as you are and submit both to all of these magazines editorial departments or Google
Ethnic Modeling agencies or Commercial print modeling agencies and you will find that MOST agencies do need ethnic models because the demand in that market is high.
Not just for Univision and BET but for products like:
hair products,
Skin care
Ad campaigns for lifestyle products like Verizon, McDonalds, ect

There is ALOT out there.
