Julia Nobis and Lindsey Wixson started modeling and acquired a very loyal client base before the Instagram train. Unfortunately, models starting out today are required to have an account as clients and casting agents prefer to look at Polaroids and self-shot images on social media today. Some will not even consider inviting a model to a casting if they have no Instagram. Portfolios and editorials no longer have the same weight as they did before. This is especially true for the commercial and money clients.
