Barbizon Today Back to Facts and Claims

Claim:
You don’t have to go to a school like Barbizon to become a model.

Fact:
True. You don't. But training does make the process of breaking into and navigating the industry a little easier. This is one of the most competitive industries in the world. The fact of the matter is that sure you could send your photos and resume to top agencies and you might even get noticed, but it’s rare. Many top agencies receive thousands of photos, resumes, portfolios and applications every single day. In the end, many submissions will not receive an appointment.

Barbizon is a great way to get your foot in the door. Some Barbizon locations even host competitions where agents from all over the country attend to scout new talent. We have a long-standing relationship with a large network of agents, managers and casting directors that can help you make the right connections with the right industry professionals.

“Some of the girls I find at Barbizon events – very rarely do I hold open calls or even get my mind around searching for new talent – but the talent when I do pick them up here (Barbizon) is so great. They’re really easy to work with and really makes my job in the development process easier. Kudos to the Barbizon staff and what they do.” – Guy Gilliand, Owner, G Management LA

“I think Barbizon definitely helped me way more than what I could do on my own. It gave me the opportunity to do what I wanted to do and they helped me a long the way. And it definitely taught me more than I could learn from magazines or anything like that. The teachers are there to help you and make you progress and succeed.” – Lyndsay Davis, Barbizon Tampa Grad, 2011 Miss Barbizon
