Trade Show Models Member Requirements
Welcome to Trade Show Models We are excited that you've decided to join North America's #1 trade show and promotional modeling website; a model community for only models - no photographers, no agencies, only models.
This is phase one of our website and we will be launching additional functionality over the coming months designed to help you, the models, with your careers.
You are asked to provide a short bio as part of your application. You may elect to include a resume but that is not required. Please include experience, goals, or any other relevant information. We would prefer you provide more information rather than less. Sell yourself, but don't make it sound like a personal ad.
Your profile must be your own
Model managers or agencies are not allowed. Profiles must be those of the member it is representing.
You Must Be 18
Members must be 18 years of age or older. No exceptions. Any individual who has created a TSM profile and is under 18 will be removed upon discovery.
Provide a minimum of 3 different photos
At least three different photos are required for all accounts and at all times. More than three are highly recommended. Profiles with less than 3 photos may be accepted for the private model portal and for agency review but will not show up on the public website.
One photo must show your face. We recommend a minimum of one headshot, one full-length body shot and another that you love and/or shows off your personality. Variety is recommended.
Take a look at other approved models images to get an idea of what works.
Quality Images Required
Only applications with quality photos will show up on the public site. Profiles with less than professional photos may be accepted for the private model portal and for agency review. Whether they show up on the public website is at reviewers discretion. Examples of photos that do not typically meet our quality standards include self-taken camera shots, mirror shots, webcam or screen grabs, over or under exposed images or overly touched up images.
Images less than 200 pixels on any dimension are typically too small and may result in poor quality or fuzzy images. We recommend a minimum of 500 pixels. Large image submissions will be automatically resized. Please keep your images to a reasonable file size. The maximum accepted image size is 2MB. If your photos are not uploading you may want to check the file size.
Pornographic material is not allowed. Nude images are acceptable and in the future you will have the ability to make multiple portfolios for different image types.
Your uploaded photos must be your property or you must have permission from the copyright owner. We take copyright laws seriously. Please make sure you have written permission from all copyright holder(s) to display images in your portfolio.
Trademarks and brands are the property of their respective owners.
Booth babe is a slang term for trade show models or convention models.
