I have always been interested in working as a model, and my friend who recently did a photoshoot of me told me afterward that she thinks I have a very unique face and that i would make a very good model. Before I let that get to my head I was wondering what people on here who I assume are way more familiar with this sort of thing think? Would i be able to pull it off? Here are a few pictures from about a year back, excuse the scarf Hopefully this is the right place to post this

Oh no, this is exactly the right place to post this. You need to look more fierce.

You need to work on some trade mark looks.

Like Blue Steel. Or La Tigre. Or Magnum.

I did a couple gigs when I was in college... poorly... but enough to learn 2 things:
it all boils down to who your agent is and that you are at least 6ft.

You might be ok for commercial work (catalogs, inserts, etc.)

I would say same as above. How tall are you? if you are over 6 ft, like 6'3 or something, you probably definitely could be. But if you're short, nope.

You look too much like a newfie to succeed in the local market.
