As someone who’s volunteered to approve profiles for one of the modeling sites, I’ve seen a lot of stuff when it comes to profiles. So I’ve come up with a few basic tips on how to best write your profile, as a model.
- You’re joining a modeling site, not a dating site. So talk about what you want to do when it comes to modeling, and leave the “I like to knit, scrapbook, and play with puppies” out of it altogether.
- Your profile doesn’t have to be long. In many cases, the shorter, the better. And use paragraphs. People tend not to read long blocks of text.
- Make sure important info is at the top. Things like your availability and any restrictions (like the fact that you don’t have reliable transportation).
- Use real words, proper punctuation, spellcheck, and decent grammar. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but make it legible and easy to understand. Avoid text-talk and MySpace speak at all costs.
- Don’t load up your profile with photos (especially if they’re in your portfolio!), glittery icons, or other BS. It makes it slow to load, a pain to sift through, and will likely result in your viewer going “NEXT!” and moving on to someone else.
- Avoid being ridiculously negative. Focus more on what you’re willing to do, instead of what you don’t want to do.

I am a new model in the Cincinnati area. I am interested in working with quality photographers on a trade basis to expand my portfolio. I am interested in casual, lifestyle, fashion, swimwear, and lingerie work.
I will travel up to 90 miles from Cincinnati if my gas is covered. I have my own car, but prefer to bring a friend to all of my shoots.
If you are interested in working with me, tell me what kind of shoot you have in mind, where the shoot will be, send me a link to your photography website (other than OMP or MM), and give me a list of at least 4 models that you have worked with more than once along with contact information.
I am not interested in posing nude. All requests for nude work will be ignored.
I’m a aspiring model in OHIO WOOOOOOOO!!! I’m interested in working with exceptional PROFESSAIONAL photographers ONLY. I’m realy fun and motivated and easy to work with. I always bring my boyfirnd with me to shoots, bt he’s really cool and a nice guy so you don’t have to worry about him at all I promise!! 🙂 ***** I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A DATE!! ***** I DO NOT DO NUDES DO NOT EVEN ASK!!! ***** I WILL NOT SHOOT WITHOUT AN ESCORT PRESENT!!! I won’t travel unless expenses are covered!! In order to work with me, you MUST give me 6 references, your studio name and address, 2 phone numbers, and I’ll need to know what kind of shoot you want, where it will be, who will be there, if you will provide a MAU, what you will feed me for lunch, and how long of a shoot it will be. DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS!! Oh by the way I don’t have my own car and my boyfriend drives me to all my shoots in his 25 year old Chevy pickup truck that sometimes breaks down, but I’m scared of public transportation and won’t take it,so this is the ONLY way I can get to shoots! I’m available to shoot only Mondays and Tuesdays, every second week.
So, that should help. Hopefully you can see what’s good about my “good” examples, and what’s bad about the “bad” ones 😉
