I was actually approached by a porn studio when one of the directors saw my pics on another website. I had already been photographed for Playgirl and MEN Magazines by that point. So, from a personal standpoint, I never had to send my pics out to studios. I have since done about 9 movies and been in a number of magazines. I have had friends who wanted to get into porn and sent their pics directly to the studios they wanted to work with. Some have been picked right up while others weren't. I have also had friends who started with smaller, local, amateur studios and ended up with a bigger studio. I think it comes down to each person's individual look and what the studio is looking for. Typically, it's said that porn studios look for great face, great body, and great ass or cock and if you have 2 of the 3 you have a good shot of getting in with a studio. if you are wanting to get into porn, I say go for it. Send the pictures into the studios you would like to work for and see what happens. The worst they can say is no.
