1. Sydney, Australia
27 of Australia’s 94 modeling agencies lie in Sydney, Australia, being the top Australian city known for modeling and containing more agencies than any other Australian city alone. Considering Sydney is a large city with many popular places to visit and home to well over four million residents, it’s no doubt modeling here is a plus for new or prospective models!
Some of Sydney’s top modeling agencies include Chadwick, Priscilla’s, and Wink.
2. Tokyo, Japan
If you speak and understand functional Japanese, Tokyo is a great place to get scouted and kickstart your modeling career! Though it is a little tough receiving a modeling contract in Japan itself, if you’re fairly tall, and as mentioned, speak at least some Japanese, you may very well find yourself a Tokyo model in no time.
Tokyo no doubt is one of the best cities in Asia to model for if you really want to be a successful model and quickly build up your career path.
3. New York City, NY, USA
It’s clear that New York City is the place to model in the United States. Most Americans who want to pursue a modeling career do in fact move to New York City as it is the second most populated city in the U.S. home to over a whopping eight million residents. It’s clear that the Big Apple is a great city to get yourself out there modeling-wise due to its endless opportunities.
Though New York City is quite populous, making it more difficult to stand out in the crowd, literally, there are so many modeling agents available in this city just waiting for your portfolio and ready to scout a unique model.
4. Los Angeles, CA, USA
Besides New York City, Los Angeles is yet again another great U.S. city to pursue a modeling career being the most populous U.S. city considering its over ten million residents.
Keep in mind, though, that modeling in general is a very competitive career, not to mention that it is at first hard to land a modeling gig or full-on career in Los Angeles unless you are a bit more experienced or are very ambitious with your career, but L.A. is still no doubt a great place to model. After all, it is better to land a modeling career in a larger city and take a few risks than it is to model in a smaller city where there’s hardly any recognition for your talent. This city is home of the arts for sure and has plenty of opportunities if you seek them!
5. Paris, France
Paris, the city of lights, is beyond probably one of the coolest and prettiest places to model. And, of course, there are many modeling opportunities. As long as you’re over the age of 16, are fairly tall, and meet your potential Paris agency’s measurement requirements, there’s definitely a chance for you to be a Paris model!
Seriously, who wouldn’t want to model in Paris?! This city is such a dream, not to mention all of the great career accomplishments you could make modeling there, wearing only the finest of garments designed by some of the most prestigious, high-end labels! This city is definitely all about fashion.
