I look about average and sometimes below average, but I clean up exceptionally well and was wondering if maybe I could find work as a regular looking / "ugly" model. So many things are done digitally these days that I don't really think it is reaching, but I could be wrong. Would I have to show up on site, or could I just post my pictures to a website? It would really be incentive to keep up my appearance. Unfortunately, I usually let it go when I feel like there's no incentive to keep up with it.

You could start out by being a catalog model. Do you have a professional photographer to work with? You'd need to put together a portfolio, and send it to modeling agencies in your area.

How about you post your outfit of the on yourblog or instagram or whatever and make it a habit. I don't those "regular models" exist anymore. It happens the other way, build a following and then the sponsors come running.

OP, Google "how to become a catalog model". There are a couple of sites with some answers for you. You need to be fit and toned, with clear skin. There's info on how to get professional photos taken for free.
