You don't apply for a H1B a company that wants you hires you and they submit and support you. Modeling hmmm don't know but if you can find a company that will support you go for it.

Thanks dwheels76. so the company that hires me will need to submit a request for me to work there? Do they need to pay for the request? It says that modelling falls under the H-1B Persons in Specialty Occupation.

Came across a similar thread years ago.

Best bet would be to contact your Agency, they will have US contacts that may help.
