Applying for that model job

IF YOU'VE always wanted to be a model but haven't known how to be discovered, this September might be your chance to be spotted in Byron Bay.

After successfully signing two local girls to modelling agencies last year, Hunter Model Management manager Jo Sheils is coming to Byron Bay again this September to scout for talent in the Northern Rivers region.

Hunter Model Management is a scouting agency that prepares men and women to be elite, international runway models.

Ms Sheils trains models, getting them ready to be signed to national and international modelling agencies; transforming them for the industry, rather than simply booking clients work.

She said she was "excited" to be returning to look for beautiful people next month, noting there is a lot of "undiscovered modelling talent" in the Northern Rivers.

"After coming to Byron Bay last year and finding five girls who will go on to do runway work, I want to come and look for more talent in the area," Ms Sheils said.

"The beach lifestyle presents a lot of models that are out of the box and I'm looking for girls and guys who can work as international models which means they have that different kind of look."

Ms Sheils said modelling was still viable career in 2013.

"Modelling is ever evolving and the looks agencies are looking for today are very diverse," she said.

"Anyone who thinks they might have what it takes should come along to the scouting day because you don't know what we're looking for specifically.

"You don't have to be a traditional beauty as many agencies are after a unique look."

Hunter Model Management is looking for both men and women in Byron Bay this September.

Women need to be at least 14 years old and 170cm tall.

Men should be over 16 years old and 173 cm in height.

Model wannabes should come to the event with no make-up and in clean, casual dress.
