The following requirements must be met in order to be added to the Forte Models roster. Granted, these requirements might seem extreme for eligibility for trade show work. However, We have established these guidelines to build a brand.
We require a 1-2 paragraph bio that includes clients you have served, career highlights, etc. We will wordsmith the bio. See the example below.
Jody M has been Forte Model’s number one booked model for the last five years consecutively. This stunning British transplant is a first call model for trade shows, events, print shoots, commercials and live television. Major brands this remarkable lady has represented include; Ford Motors, Disney, Dillards, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bealls, Vermont Teddy Bear, Home Shopping Network, Marriott, Harley Davidson, Hard Rock Cafe, Publix, Ron Jons, Gaylord Palms, Bahamas Tourism, Macy’s, Jimmy Choo, Dicks Sporting Goods, Pajamagram and countless more.
The Introductory Video
We request all models shoot a 30-second introduction on their cell phone or camera. The model says hello and shares her name, where she is from, and that she is part of the Forte Model team from her particular city. We prefer a horizontal shot video in 1080p. Shooting in front of a white wall or scream would be ideal. Show the clients your personality. This will be included in your portfolio.
What Is The Look Of A Forte Model?
Our vision of a Forte Model is the following qualities and looks mixed in a blender for one spectacular final woman.
A Miss America Pageant Girl
A Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader
A leggy Cable News Anchor
A Hawaiian Tropic Swimsuit Model
A Playboy Playmate, fully clothed.
These are all very familiar looks in style and substance. We would like our models to take the best qualities of these descriptions and merge te qualities with their own inner and outer beauty.
Our Look For Branding
Forte Models receives countless submissions from model prospects who think that stripping most of their clothes off makes them a model. Our agency prefers to force our clients to use their imagination instead of giving them the farm by posting pics of gals in their underwear. We will always be the classy and sophisticated site. We expect models on our team to be professional with an ever growing diverse and versatile portfolio. Models who don’t have the type images we require must get them if they wish to be considered for the team.
A Little Eye Candy
We have chosen to focus our model’s legs as the physical featured attribute. This was done to stray away from the stereotype “T&A” concept. We are not interested in over-objectifying women. However, calling attention to their beauty in a nonsexual way is not objectionable. Also, as the advertisement says, “Nothing Beats A Great Pair Of Legs” We would love the leggy girls of Forte to become a recognizable organization at the convention centers and event venues.
In order to become a “Leggy Forte Model”, a model needs to show off their legs. So we have come up with 6 categories of pictures with particular garment accessories. We believe these looks will turn heads. We also believe this requirements will force models to shoot new images for team membership instead of submitting older work done previously for some one else. You must wear tan sheer toe to waist pantyhose with all looks but swimwear. Here are some some suggestions for shoes that will flatter your legs greatly and give you the Forte look. The shoes are not expensive. However, they will make your legs look amazing and help you rank higher in the gallery.
The link to these shoes are; https://www.amazon.com/Devious-Womens-DOMINA-108-Sandal-Polyurethane/dp/B072HNKLTC/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_img_9?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=EBRF5A509BMX7P1BZN2N
One last note. These shoes are specifically for your images. We would never make you wear a pair of shoes like this to a convention. That is, unless, you feel comfortable in shoes like this.
The Picture Chart
Here are the looks we require models to submit. Images should be head to toe, in color, with the model standing, or seated with legs crossed.
