Modeling Light Magazine was established to “shine light” on the modeling industry for anyone interested or active in the industry – from new models and photographers to makeup artists and hairdressers. Anyone that would like to learn more about the industry or increase their exposure is welcome, and encouraged, to submit.
Building a portfolio can be a daunting task, especially if it’s your first. Even harder is getting your work in front of potential agents or other industry professionals. With both print and digital editions of the magazine, your images will be available to people all over the world!
Exposure is key to any successful job in the fashion and modeling industry. Without it, brands, companies and publications will be unaware of your work which offers no benefits to either party. To be successful all brands need to advertise, as do models, hair and makeup artists, photographers and agents.
*Note that some issues may be themed; while submissions outside the theme will be accepted, those that satisfy the theme are more likely to be featured.
The model should have permission from the photographer or have full rights to the images submitted. A model release should be included in the submission, either a scan JPG/PNG or PDF. Please try to show a range of different poses, locations, backgrounds, styles etc. We are trying to show your ability to model to other photographers and agents! Let’s show them your best!
Photographers should submit a good range of photographs showing their diversity and abilities across various types of photography! A model release will be required for all models pictured, and any property releases for property that is easily identifiable.
Either makeup artists or hairdressers should submit photographs showing their range and abilities with their given talents! They should have releases from the photographer of their images unless they have taken the images themselves.
Agents and publicists should submit a range of work for each of the people they represent! We would love to have you submit your client’s images with releases for inclusion in the catalog of portfolios. See above for your clients type and thoughts / requirements for submissions.
The main requirement for photographs for publication either online or in the magazine is that they are your best work. Ask yourself if a magazine like Elle, or Cosmopolitan would publish an image of this quality. Cell Phone photographs are NOT acceptable (Unless submitting for Selfie Search!).
