Model Tips

Modelling Tips – How to SUCCEED as a Model A model’s best strategy for success is to treat the people who employ them very well. An agent can expose and introduce a model to clients, photographers, and others in a position to employ them, but it is up to the model to favourably impress these individuals. Because of the high fees that models are paid, clients expect a lot. Also, because there are so many models competing for the same assignments, it is not possible to succeed by performing the minimum; a model must be outstanding. Treating their clients well is also the best thing you can do for your agent. When you represent your modelling agent well it enhances his or her modelling agency. The following basic concepts explain a model’s responsibility to his or her clients. Be Punctual Arrive at the time designated by your agent or client. In many markets, models are expected to arrive at assignments 15 minutes prior to the booked time.

Model Advice

Types of modelling agencies There are almost as many kinds of agencies as there are models who want to be signed up by them. Many people tend to think of modelling in terms of high fashion (glossy magazines, cosmetic campaigns), but if you look at the world around you (eg: billboards, television adverts, promotional events) it becomes immediately clear that this is not necessarily the case. Agencies do not just cater for the editorial / high fashion market. There are many different genres of modelling .

This will not only save a lot of heartache and rejection, but also time and money in the long run as you then target yourself towards the right agency. Fashion / Editorial modelling Tyra Banks has created a television empire around the concept that young girls want to be fashion models . If you watch just one episode of her show, you will realise that making it as a fashion / editorial model is probably the toughest hurdle in the entire modelling industry. To make it as a successful fashion or editorial model, the stipulations from agencies are very

Modelling Agency vs Model Management Model Managers and Model Agents what’s the difference? The Model business can be a confusing profession for those just starting out. There are so many unwritten rules, not to mention the scams that ruin the dreams of many potential models. However, going into a modeling career armed with knowledge will help minimize the confusion and maximize the success. Many beginning models mistakenly think that “model agent” and “model manager”/“mother agent” are two names for the same job. Actually, they are very different, but in a similar way. The best way to explain the differences is to tackle the job responsibilities separately, giving models a good idea of those differences. When models are “scouted”/ found or walk into a local agency the models professional abilities are analyzed, from physical characteristics such as age height, body structure facial features and personality. Once convinced the model has the potential to work in the model industry a general plan will be laid out and a contract of representation will be offered to the model. If the model is a minor the contract will be shared with the model and her parents or legal guardians. This agreement will be headed
