Getting Started

Thousands of young ladies and gentleman have gotten their start at Barbizon. Many have gone on to show business stardom and others have used their skills to fulfill their dreams in other areas.


Modeling & Acting for Kids & Modeling & Personal Development

Let's keep it real...not everyone wears a size 6 or even a size 8. Full-figured models are needed on runways as well as in print ads. Models are needed in all sizes and age groups. Magazines and newspapers, not to mention television, are filled with ads that feature people just like you who are sitting there wondering if you really have what it takes to be in the modeling business.


Preparing for a career in modeling includes learning all about the many different types of modeling, and the special techniques models use. Many successful models of all shapes and sizes appear in magazines, on television, in videos, and on the runways during fashion week. High fashion runway models have the most rigorous physical requirements, but local requirements for fashion models are not as strict.
