A. I've learned so many things about modelling and there are loads of categories such as fashion, lingerie, swimwear, catwalk, plus size modelling, alternative, beauty, art nude, etc, You get to meet amazing creative people and working with them.

And when joining an agency make sure its free and do not pay them. If they ask for money they are scams. The best thing to do is check for reviews or email the models for more proof.
