How can I get into modeling?

I'm 15 years old and only 5'6 so i'm not looking into runway modeling or anything, just local modeling or print. I live close to the NYC area but I know its extremely hard to get signed to an agency around here, especially without the height and certain features. I wouldn't even mind modeling for local designers or a website that sells clothes like bigcartel or karmaloop. I don't have any modeling experience but I would really like to start. Any advice or places I can go to start?

Start by having a friend take pictures of you and set up a portfolio with your pictures. Youcan advertise on craigslist if your parents allow it. Or put up flyers. Or search for companies on google in your local area. Sometimes clothing stores are looking for models. Go on their websites and look. Good luck!

Most NYC models are famous because they were found on tumblr. Once they get famous, they model & get there pictures taken in Times Square.
