Tips for Putting Together a Modeling Website Part 2

So you want to put together a modeling website. Great, I’ve done it and I can help point you in the right direction! There is more than one way to go about this process but since I can only speak for myself, this post is going to deal with information that I found to be useful in starting my website (

The following are basic steps that need to be taken in order for your website to go live on the Web:

Step 1: Get a Domain Name. Your domain name is the actual name of your website/URL. Make sure you have a domain name that is easy to remember and isn’t too long. There are many web hosting and domain name services that will show you how to do this. Go for the best price and make sure your domain name is available. If it is taken you’ll have to find a different variation. Make sure you go with a .com extension instead of a .org or other type. Don’t worry about buying a domain name with different extensions either. All you need is a .com. You can pay for your domain name annually or to save money you can pay a one-time sum amount, which will have you paid up for the next few years in advance.

Step 2: Get Web Hosting.
In order to have a website, you need to have a web hosting service. This is where your website will be uploaded and published to the Web. Web hosting services offer all kinds of tools to help your website stand out. To kill two birds with one stone and make it easier on your wallet, it is helpful to have your domain name and your web hosting services with the same company. I personally use and love They have cheap domain names and hosting services and I’ve had nothing but great customer service experiences.

Step 3: Get Your Website Together. There are a number of ways you can go about this. There are some websites that allow you to build as you go and don’t require any knowledge of coding or any other graphic design skills. An example of such a site is: These sites also offer web hosting and domain names as well so you can have everything all in one place. Prices depend on what membership plan you choose.

Another way to get a website put together is to hire a graphic designer to create one for you. I will say, however, that this is one of the most expensive methods. Graphic designers do great work but it’s hard, tedious work. There are some graphic designers who may charge on the lower end—especially given the economy these days—but don’t be surprised if a graphic designer offers rates starting at $2,000 or higher. If you go for this option, the graphic designer will be your to-go person for everything and that includes updating your content and/or images. That could involve additional fees. Remember, this is their business, which is why they charge extra for certain features and operate the way they do. Be sure the person you hire is trustworthy. If you lose touch with your graphic designer or he/she just ups and disappears, you won’t be able to do anything with your website unless you have access to the files and other documents needed for the website to function.

The next method you can turn to, which I currently use and recommend, is to purchase a premade website template and then customize it. This is one of the most affordable and convenient ways to create your website. For my modeling website, I simply went to and browsed around until I found a modeling template that I liked. Then I purchased it for $60. And trust me, that is a good deal! Most of the templates range from $40-150, depending on the style and complexity of the template design and it’s a one-time fee so once you purchase your template you don’t have to pay any other membership or annual fees. Once I had my template, I used Photoshop to customize the pages. I swapped out the content and the images for my own. I don’t have any coding experience so after I had my Photoshop documents customized I hired a friend, who is a graphic designer, to code the pages and upload the files to my web hosting account. Then I was live on the Web and good to go. If you choose the template option, it is helpful if you know Photoshop—if you don’t, you’ll have to find someone who does. The best way to remedy this problem is to have the template customized for you by the website that you purchased the template from. For example, the website where I purchased my template from will put together your template for you with your content and images for under $200. That means you can have a fully functioning website for much, much less than other alternatives.

If you’re interested in this third option and want to know more information, email me: I customize website templates as part of my art business so if you would like to pursue this option, I’d be more than happy to help you out.

Tips for Putting Together a Modeling Website Part 1

Whether you have agency representation or not or are a freelance model, it never hurts to have a website. It's so easy to network with someone and simply say, "You should check out my website. It's..." What better way to get attention and show people that you're serious? And these days just about everyone is online at one point or another so having a website gives you additional exposure and can lead to your own online fanbase.

So what should go on your site? Well, that all depends on you, the model. If you do runway and fashion, you're going to want to showcase that on your site. Your website's images and content should reflect the work you do, as well as show your diversity. The essential components for a web page include, but are not limited to: Welcome Page, Home Page, Bio, Resume, Gallery and Contact Page.

When it comes to your bio, I suggest you avoid using "I", "We", etc. The content of your site looks more official when written in third person--even if it's you who is writing it. It may seem silly but it will all make sense for the people reading it. You can talk about anything but it should be related to your modeling career. What do you want the public to know about you? Maybe you just want to talk about your modeling career. Or you can tie in your personal life, where you were born, etc. It's entirely up to you. But make sure that what you write about won't put people to sleep (you can say you love animals, but it's not necessary to include the names of your cats and their favorite foods). Be concise and get to the point. Use this page to make yourself stand out and make people want to get to know you. Any written content on your website should be completely free of typos, misspellings and grammatical errors. If writing isn’t your strong point, have someone help you. Have your content proofread and edited before putting it on your website. Nothing looks worse than having misspelled words or an awkwardly written sentence on your website. If you’re going to do a modeling website, do it right!

Use only your best images in your photo gallery/portfolio camera phone pictures and make sure that they are good quality (hi resolution is best so the images don’t look blurred or pixelated). Tearsheets should have priority in your gallery. If you don't have such pictures, I would advise getting a TFP together or some other type of shoot before putting together your website. I recommend having between four to five different looks in your photo gallery. This will allow potential clients to see the range of work you do. Avoiding having more than 1-2 images from the same look.

On the contact page, be sure to create an email that is formal--no type of addresses! Avoid putting your phone number/cell number on your website as well as your home address (especially if you are underage). The main information that should appear on your contact page is an email address and/or links to other sites like Facebook, Myspace, etc. (if you have an agent, you should list the agency’s contact information as well as the phone number, direct email address and name of your booker). The last thing you need are telemarketers or creepy characters calling you at all hours of the day or night—or knowing where you live. Yikes. If someone is really interested in hiring you, they will email you. Or you can get a P.O. Box if you want to receive fan mail or other correspondence from clients.

In addition to a photo gallery, it's also helpful to include your modeling resume if you have one. This gives you credibility when it comes to what projects you've done and who you've been involved with. If you’re new and don’t have a resume, don’t worry about it at this point.

Have fun with your website. Showcase your personality as well as your looks. Use your website to introduce yourself to potential clients as well as potential fans. Let them know about you as a person in your bio or home page. But by all means, do NOT dress up your website with Myspace type of elements such as multicolored text, glittery images and photos of your friends and family...Your modeling website is your official calling card to the world, so keep it professional and make it all about you!

A Quick Look at Actual Modeling & Talent Agency Contracts

I've talked a lot about modeling contracts and I know that this almighty document is one that many of you aspiring models may be wondering about. Lucky for you, I was able to find some actual contracts that you can read. I will state, however, that each agency has its own modeling contract drawn up and not all of them contain the same things. The only way you can get a real modeling contract in your hands is to either work at an agency or be a model who is about to sign one. Other than that, the majority of agencies keep their contracts confidential, and with good reason--not only do they want to keep the terms of their working relationship with their models safe, they also don't want the competition to see it. Lots of legal stuff involved there.

I have a copy of a modeling contract, which is a SAMPLE--that means it isn't a contract from an existing agency--it's more so a template of what a typical contract will look like and a great way for you to get familiar with just what agencies expect of you. I have also included a contract from a talent agency, which is an actual contract from an existing agency--Cast Images, which is a talent agency in Northern California. Remember, talent agencies represent both models and actors and if you are interested in both, I highly recommended finding representation through a TALENT agency and not having an agent for each type of field. It's much more convenient and you'll only have to pay commission to one agency, not two.

The original link to this modeling agency contract can be found HERE:


The original talent agency contract can be found HERE:



Depending on the agency, some contracts can be as short as 1 page, while others can be many pages (my Ford contract was more than 10 pages!). When it's your turn to hold an actual contract in your hands, be sure to go over every single page and fully understand the content. Don't be afraid to ask questions, either. Make sure you know what you're signing! Just because you've looked at these contracts in this blog post, that doesn't necessarily mean you'll know exactly what the contract you'll be offered will contain.

Answering a Reader Question #57

Anonymous Wrote: 
I would like to know what a standard exclusive modeling contract with Victoria's Secret looks like. Google is being entirely useless and hopefully this isn't proprietary information.
Hi, Anonymous, and thank you for your question--especially since it isn't about how to become a Victoria's Secret model! Lol. 

Unfortunately, you will not find any type of contract regarding Victoria's Secret online or anywhere except if you end up modeling for them. Exclusive contracts are confidential between the parties involved and publishing such documents is going to get the person responsible in a lot of legal trouble. 

Modeling contracts in general state the following information:

- Duties of the model to the client
- Duties/responsibilities of the client to the model
- Duration of the working relationship
- Exit Clause

In the case of becoming a Victoria's Secret model there will more than likely be a non-compete clause, which states that you as a VS model are not allowed to do work for any other competitor in the industry. So you would not be allowed to model for any other lingerie/undergarment company such as Fredrick's of Hollywood for as long as you are under contract with VS.
