Lots of experienced and new models think that popping their photos in the mail or attaching it to an email is all they are expected to do. What many don’t realize is that the agencies are not just looking forward to your photos, they are also interested with the manner of presentation of how you send the photos to them, tell them so much about you and if they are not impressed, you will not get a reply from them.
If you are sloppy in your manner of sending your photos, the agencies have no choice but to believe you are sloppy. You need to pay close attention to detail, avoid being too casual in hour letter or email, stay businesslike and professional, it makes the agent worry about you being too casual with their clients.

There are agencies that preference receiving photos by mail while some other loves it to be by email. It is vital that you follow their instructions to the letter. If perchance your send your photos via the mail and the agency in question prefers receiving photos via email, what you are indirectly telling the agency is that you don’t follow instructions and you are not dedicating time to learn.

If you will be mailing photos, the way you address the envelope is very important. If you will be handwriting your cover letter or the address on the envelope, ensure that it is legible and neat. Do not place your photos in a folder, photo albums or binder. Do not make use of fancy colored paper, heart stickers, or cute messages inside your package or on envelopes.
