Frequently asked questions

The model industry has undergone an overhaul in the last five years: no longer do you have to be a size zero to be successful. Nowadays, many of the world’s top designers have banned size zero models from appearing in catwalk shows. It is important to be realistic and approach the correct agencies with the right style of portfolio

While tattoos were no go in the industry, they are now more accepted, depending on their size and location. With a third of young people in the industry now having a tattoo, advertisers are realising that their target market not only want to view models with tattoos but have some form of body ink.

Agencies will represent you and find work; it is up to you to decide which castings and shoots you would like to attend. Do not be afraid to say no. If you are in full time education your agency will be aware and would only call you at the weekends and holidays so your studies are not interrupted.

Rates for models really depend from clients to clients. Some rates can be hourly and daily. Once you are signed with an agency you should have a very clear understanding of all rates the percentage your agent will take from your earning, you can refer back to your contract to keep track of your earnings.

Yes, a portfolio is the key to your success. It is your CV. Modelling portfolios show ability and versatility, and will show your full potential as a model to all clients. Your clients will hire you depending on your modelling portfolio, therefore the better your portfolio the higher chance of getting signed with an agency and finding work.

No Agency will guarantee work. While they can represent you and market you it is ultimately the creative decision makers who organise the shoots to choose which model they want to work with, and they do that by looking at your portfolio.
