Aspiring models need to take tear sheets seriously as they are the only presented and consider representation by an agency. Just as an agency's clients demand to see tear sheets, the agency also demands to see them. Aspiring models should ask to see tear sheets at a modeling agency's office and look for tear sheets on their website.
Tear sheets are proof that an agency can and does get its models print work. If an agency has managed to get its models published in magazines, etc, one think they will confirm to have tear sheets as a proof that they provide jobs to their models.
Models maintain tear sheets for their portfolios, and company also maintains copies of their books to promote the model. If they don’t have any tear sheet then sure they cannot get their models work.
