    1) Build up a really solid portfolio shooting fashion/glamour in the studio and on location.
    2) Move to New York, LA, London, or Paris.
    3) Find a photographer in the industry to show your amazing book to, and work as an assistant for a couple years. Make connections, don't steal them.
    4) Rent or purchase a studio.
    5) Try to get work testing for agencies.
    6) Build yourself a name
    7) Talk to the magazines.
