Got to disagree with you about it's easy to be a model. Once you're in this line for so.. long. All you know is about hard work and it's rather more tiring then normal working. It's a schedule where you couldn't work with it. Cause You have to report at 9am but the show starts at 8pm.

Upfront fee doesn't required in a modelling agency. If they insist you to pay for a fee, then it's not a modelling agency. But for portfolio, as a model you need to have a portfolio for you to go for casting and auditions. But be SMART! Do your own portfolio before entering any agency. Cause you have to pay extra ($$$) just to get it done in a agency.

All I got to say is BE SMART, ACT SMART
