Hi my name is Alexandra and I have a pretty obvious scar on my back due to surgery when I was an infant. How will this scar affect me when I send in snap shots and when meeting agencies in person and just getting started?

Hi Alexandra,

Your scar should not affect you at all…Most modeling jobs do not require your back to be specifically photographed. If so, they usually use a parts model that specializes in back modeling. You should mention it to any modeling agency that represents you so they will not submit for jobs that will require you back to be shown, bathing suits etc. But keep in mind that something like a scar is easily removed with photo retouching. It is actually a pretty minor fix.

Good Luck!
