The Gothic Shop receives several model requests on a daily basis but it is not often we actually require additional models as many of our suppliers already provide us with good pictures of their items. Since our social media reach has declined considerably over the years we sometimes collaborate with models who have a higher reach to the relevant audience than we do, but again, we cannot collaborate with everyone. You may send us your portfolio for consideration but please keep the above in mind.
We also get lots of emails asking "How do I become a goth/alternative/pinup model?". We're probably not the best people to ask, but we recently found this article by Pinup Model Micheline Pitt: How To Become A Pinup Model – The Truth Behind The Red Lipstick, and it turned out to be an interesting read and gives an honest account of life as a model. We think this is a nice article for any aspiring model to peruse, be they pinup, goth or otherwise alternative.
More specifically, Lady Amaranth has written an excellent blog on How To Become A Goth Model which features some great tips and sensible advice.
We hope this is of some help.
