This is directed to all those prospective models that I’ve had to turn down from working with us. I hope this post will give you a better perspective on what we’re looking for in models and how we work as well as give some suggestions on what to do if you want to continue to persue working in the TG adult arena.
Grooby Productions is the largest producer of TG material in the world and there are other companies but we’re renowned for being one of the companies that brings new models into the industry. We shoot primarily in N.American, Brazil, Europe, Japan, Thailand and The Philippines but no country is out of the question if we can get a producer there. I’m mainly going to be talking here to N.American and European girls as the other countries have different hiring techniques.
We shoot around 12-15 scenes a week for our N.American sites. Many of these are with models we’ve worked with before and who have a following already, so we know they’re going to be profitable for us. The rest are of new models (so perhaps 4-5 new models a week) yet I get applications from 20+ wannabe models. So there are going to be 15+ unworkable models for various reasons.
I only have the photos and information that you send in, to go on when making a choice whether we can possibly shoot someone. If you send in crappy photos, photoshopped, or not showing your face, it’s going to be rejected immediately. Models should be sending in a selection of clear photos showing their face and full length body. Close up cock shots are un-necessary.
We’re primarily looking for girls already in transition although will sometimes take girls very early into their transition. We’d rarely take someone who identified with being a crossdresser or transvestite unless they looked exceptional. Having boobs (hormone boobs or implants) would be a big plus.
I don’t reject models on ethnicity, age or body size but clearly not every transgender was made to be a model, just as not every genetically born female or guy, was made to be a model. I run a business and when choosing which models to shoot, it’s dependant on whether I think they’re going to return the investment I’ve spent on their model fee, photographers, editors and webmasters costs. That means they are either going to bring new customers into the site or keep the existing customers happy (and continuing to pay). If I don’t think you fit this criteria, I simply cannot waste the budget on you. Grooby is probably the company which takes the most risk on new models (which is why you see so many new models on our sites before they get poached by other sites) but we cannot shoot everyone.
While you may disagree with my assessment of you (and I only have the photos that you sent in to go on) it is my business and it’s my decision. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t other companies that might be interested or all adult industry avenues are closed or even that we may be interested in working with you in the future!
Many of our current models were rejected on their first submission, they continued their transition and resubmitted new photos and were picked up for shoots. If you aren’t suitable for our site there are other sites that specialize in different types of girls and you should look into them. We run a cam site which might interest you at http://www.cams.tgirls.com so you can try performing for pay and get a free profile at http://www.tgflix.com to see who may be interested in working with you.
At the end of the day, not everyone is suited to being a model or a performer. Be confident in who you are and the changes you have made to your life and lifestyle – and enjoy and embrace it.
