Here at One Model Place, we give you all the tools you need to be a successful model. Once you register and create your portfolio, you'll have instant access to all our agencies, casting calls, and membership benefits OMP has to offer. We are the oldest online modeling community and have helped launch thousands of successful models in their professional careers. Join us and see how we can help you.
One Model Place is the premier professional casting website. Whether you're a new model or an experienced one, we provide information that can set you apart from the rest. Our excellent search tool allows you to find photographers, stylists, agencies, managers and makeup artists in your area. If you're just getting started, it's a great way to network and build your portfolio. Find answers in the forum and advice from fellow models and/or photographers, comment on members you find interesting and expand your knowledge and skills.
We are the oldest and most trusted online modeling portfolio community. We pioneered the online modeling concept. Our web site is run by people who have worked in the industry - they understand your aspirations and online needs.
One Model Place offers free starter portfolios to models with the option to upgrade to higher levels offering more features. Starter portfolios only need a few images to be approved. However, you are welcome to upload as many as 21 images at that membership level. Remember that you only get one chance to make a good first impression. Say something terrific about yourself and upload your very best photos. Most agencies simply require a clear (non-altered) headshot as well as a full-body and a three-quarter shot. Aspiring models are urged to stay away from self-photography or heavy Photoshopping of images. Photographers and agencies want to see how you really look - right now - and that is the value of working with other members and keeping updated work on your portfolio. Remember that you are often judged by the worst image on your portfolio, so learn to have a critical view of your own images. The golden rule for portfolios is “All Killer, No Filler.”
The OMP Staff works hard to offer you an interactive and professional site on which to promote your talents. The most successful models don’t just set up a portfolio and expect offers to roll in. Your online portfolio gives you all the tools you need to contact photographers and agencies, place travel notifications, start a fan club and interact with your favorite social networking sites. There are tools to add your comments to other member’s portfolios or their individual images. Photographers love it when models have ideas for shoots, so don’t be afraid to contact them directly and let them know you have a lot of ideas, and that you would love to work with them. Break the ice with someone you would love to work with. Watch your portfolio grow along with your confidence.
We individually review each portfolio before approving it in an effort to keep our models safe – and we offer tools to report members who may make inappropriate offers. OMP even offers a toll-free number (1-877-667-6700) to call so that you can talk to a real human being able to help you with any issue and advise you on any aspect of the web site or how best to utilize the tools at your fingertips and further your career.
Don’t ever be afraid to check references or do an online search for any member who contacts you. Most photographers are happy to supply references, so don’t be afraid to ask. Safety is a matter of following your instincts. If an offer seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t true. OMP urges models to report offers that make them feel uneasy or especially any offers asking for money. We want you to have fun and find work, but we want you to be safe as well. You are not just joining a portfolio hosting web site; you are joining a community offering strong support and experience in the modeling industry.
Through the forum, the search function, your online photo profile, your interaction with other members and the opportunity to consult with and receive advice from fashion industry professionals, you will embark upon a fulfilling experience that prepares you for your career in the fashion industry. Here at One Model Place, we are looking forward to helping you achieve this. We wish for you the best of success in your modeling career. Join today!
