It pays to have a mugshot photographer who knows their lighting. Jeremy Meeks, the 30-year-old alleged criminal whose ‘sexy’ mugshot took the Internet by storm sparking Twitter movements and Facebook Pages dedicated to his beautiful bone structure, has apparently signed a $30K modeling contract with Blaze Models in LA.

The news was shared by none other than TMZ, who also revealed that Meeks has managed to find himself an agent: Gina Rodriguez of GR Media, who represents other Internet sensations like Patricia Krentcil (aka. Tan Mom).

It seems having the entire Internet Photoshop you into modeling ad after modeling ad during your 15 minutes of fame can actually pay off…
