"Go see" is model industry lingo for a casting and these have made the fashion world go round for eons. Last week I visited the newly reinvented Factor Women and their men's division Chosen (both formally Elite) here in Atlanta. The agency was started in Chicago in 2009 and just opened a branch here earlier this year.
Hector Santana has been brought in as the head of the "New Faces" division and arranged for me to meet with some of his group for possible future projects. Many are still in high school or just starting college but have been working for years already. Others are brand new with just a laser printout and maybe few test shoots under their belts.

I like to see a book but more important, I like to see how they move and take direction. So test shots are essential for me in the go see process. Pretty hardly matters in being a successful model, it is all about attitude.
