How do you get discovered as a new model in Miami, Florida? That is the major question any aspiring talent has when just starting out, unfortunately, there is no one answer that applies. There are many different ways that a new model can be discovered by a modeling scout. Back in the day, models like Ashton Kutcher and Tyra Banks were discovered just living their everyday lives in public.
Music Artist Toni Braxton was discovered by a local record agent while pumping gas at a gas station. The onsite “public recruitment” tactic is still used but it is limited to a low number of people who happened to be in the right place, with the right look, at the right time (with a little luck too).

Having very strong marketing materials like photography make all the difference when starting out as a model or actor.
Some talent and model agencies still host open casting calls at their office, opening their door to new talent to be interviewed for their agency however, this is not as common as it once was.
