It is not a shame to be over 40, and it is certainly not a shame to have your photographs out there. Be realistic about your ambition though— just do it when you want too.
As for being realistic, no agency or client wants a 40 year old for a high fashion or lingerie shoot, unless you are really famous or a brand-face model. (Or if it is a specifically “40+” advertisement shoot). Try to learn about the various types of work available.
It all started with the interview on 40plusStyle.com.

One fine day, I decided it would be great to be a model. But I was 43 years old, did not had any contacts, experience and knownledge about the business.
Eather way, I just started and ten years later, I am still modelling (and learning!)
