Travel tips for models – Municipalities in Rome

A trip to Rome can be quite confusing. There are a total of 15 municipalities called Municipio. These districts are in turn divided into 155 zones. It’s really not easy to find your way through. Here is a list of the different districts for you:

  1. Centro Storico (Rome) – Prati
  2. Parioli /Nomentano – San Lorenzo
  3. Monte Sacro
  4. Tiburtina
  5. Prenestino / Centocelle
  6. Roma delle Torri
  7. San Giovanni / Cinecittà
  8. Appia Antica
  9. EUR
  10. Ostia
  11. Arvalia Portuense
  12. Monte Verde
  13. Aurelia
  14. Monte Mario
  15. Cassia Flaminia

Colosseo – You must see this in Rome

The Colosseum in Rome is the symbol of the city and is something you should not miss when visiting it. But Rome also has some other locations worth seeing:

  • PalatinThe Seven Hills of Rome are really great vantage points. One of the best is the Palatine (Palatino), a green hill with atmospheric ruins, mighty pines and a splendid view of the Forum Romanum.
  • PantheonThe best preserved ancient monument of Rome is a remarkable building. The portico with the mighty columns and the squat walls is already quite impressive, but one gets a real picture of the Pantheon only when one has entered the interior. The enclosed space is huge, and when you look into the dome you feel tiny and insignificant
  • Petersdomnot only Christians succumb to the magic of St. Peter’s, the largest and most spectacular of the Roman churches. Everything here is astonishing, from the prelude, the wide curved St. Peter’s Square, the grandiose façade to the richly decorated interior. The highlight is Michelangelo’s extraordinary dome, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture and one of the landmarks of the Eternal City.

Dining in an unforgettable environment

Going out for dinner is one of the great pleasures of Rome, especially in summer when you can sit outside and people populate the streets well after midnight. What could be nicer than enjoying fine Italian food and good local wine at a table on a pretty cobblestone lane while the turbulent city life passes by? And since you will find everything here – from elegant and romantic restaurants to noisy pizzerias or upscale ice cream parlours – everybody gets his money’s worth.

Rome and its unique places

A few tips for you, what you should experience absolutely still in Rome.

Short trip Berlin? The best districts for your business trip as a model

You got your next job as a model in Berlin? Congratulations! But when you’re in the capital for the first time, you’re sure to feel lost. But Berlin isn’t as big as you think, if you know a little bit about it! So that you arrive safely on your next trip and can also explore the most beautiful places directly and find the perfect hotel or also an inexpensive alternative to the hotel, we have summarized here once the best tips for Berlin. First of all, do we basically get to the question, in which parts of the city does it even live to be a model?

The best districts of Berlin

If you are already booking a hotel or a cheap accommodation, then you should definitely settle down in the more beautiful places of Berlin, where you can experience something after a strenuous job, find cosy and tasty restaurants or even one or the other club, e.g. if it continues for you only the next day.

Berlin hot spots for your first visit

  • Berlin-Mitte: Typical city instead of typical Berlin, but central
  • Prenzlauer Berg: For a cosy time in Berlin
  • Friedrichshain: Party and Lifestyle 24/7
  • Kreuzberg: International and still Berlin
  • Berlin-Mitte: Typical city instead of typical Berlin, but central

Jobs in Berlin, tips for your next trip

In the middle of Berlin you can’t do anything wrong, you are in the centre of all places, and between Zoo, Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz, you have numerous possibilities to eat something tasty but also to experience something in the evening. The area around Berlin Mitte is characterized by tourism but also by busy people, from Monday to Friday. On weekends you will usually find tourists here, strolling from one place to another. The absolute advantage of Berlin Mitte, you are very central and can reach all places quickly. It’s also very safe here and you have very elegant nightlife. The little disadvantage, life is a bit more expensive and of course you don’t get to know the real Berlin and the real Berliners! And exactly these beautiful experiences on journeys, meeting new people, new cultures but also simply new areas, is one of the absolute advantages which one can enjoy as a model. It is guaranteed not to be boring! But if you want to experience a bit more of Berlin, then maybe you should settle down in one of these districts. The advantage, you can easily find them! Around Berlin Mitte, we start northeast in Prenzlauer Berg. You reach Prenzlauer Berg directly above Alexanderplatz. Then it goes down to the south via Friedrichshain to Kreuzberg.

Prenzlauer Berg: For a cosy time in Berlin

The home of hipsters and young families is especially for those who want to experience a dignified Berlin, the best area for cheap overnight stays like at Airbnb or hotel rooms. Here in Prenzlauer Berg you will find fewer original Berliners, but many newcomers, but a very relaxed Berlin atmosphere, beautiful streets and a little green left and right. In Prenzlauer Berg there is more upscale gastronomy, although you can still afford it, of course, because the prices in Berlin are not as overpriced as in Munich, for example. In Prenzlauer Berg you will also find numerous smaller clubs, where you can spend the evening relaxed to jazz sounds or dance to house and hip hop. In Prenzlauer Berg you will find fewer tourists, many newcomers and therefore a very interesting and international mix.

Friedrichshain: Party and Lifestyle 24/7

If you want to experience something more and also a little younger culture, then you should definitely take a look at Berlin Friedrichshain. Here you will not only find the trendy scene clubs around Warschauer Straße, e.g. the Great Crested Grebe, here you will also find real Berlin streets. A little snotty, a little edgy, totally adorable! Friedrichshain is a smaller district in relation to Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg; it connects the two central and multicultural parts of Berlin. Here you can find party tourists in particular, which is why you can also experience a lot in the evening. From the club with swimming pool to simply hanging around on the street, e.g. on Warsaw Street and the many exciting possibilities that arise around this place. If you go a little further, only a few minutes, you are already at the beginning of Kreuzberg!

Kreuzberg: International and still Berlin

Just a few decades ago Kreuzberg was the multicultural district in which there were many problems. As a result, many creative people settled here and artists, so Kreuzberg became the popular district it is today. Kreuzberg perfectly connects the Berlin world and the international, tourists meet here with real local but also with dressed up and of course hipsters. The district is very cosy and offers with its various small bars, restaurants and clubs for every evening alternate. Berlin Kreuzberg will definitely not be boring for you as a model, neither during the day nor in the evening. During the day you can get various snacks from all over the world in hundreds of small restaurants, from the classics of Italy and Turkey to Mongolian, Kenyan or Indian, all cultures of the world can be found here! Kreuzberg also offers numerous hotels as well as Airbnb overnight accommodations, so that you can be right in the district and feel right at home here.

City map, travel to Berlin: Top recommendations for your short trip

We have summarized all three districts once again for you here in a clear map. Of course the other districts of Berlin are always worth a visit, but here you would have the easiest entry and get to know a beautiful part of Berlin. Not only a nice part, but also a lot of entertainment that not only the original Berliner gives but also tourists and business people. This mix makes the capital a very special place and also a hotspot in Germany not only for models but also for fashion designers and celebrities.

How do I find the best and cheapest hotel in Berlin?

If you are looking for a quick way to spontaneously book a hotel in Berlin, the best way is a booking portal and Booking.com.

On hotel booking portals you will not only find reviews and recommendations of other users but you will also constantly find the current availability. Often you have to make a lot of calls to find available rooms, booking portals provide a quick and uncomplicated insight into the current situation. Especially at big events, mostly fairs, many hotels are fully booked, because international guests also arrive and some companies book out half hotels directly, e.g. if a big division comes from China. Therefore it is recommended to take a look at such booking portals.

It pays to book via Airbnb for Berlin?

If you want to save some money, booking with Airbnb is definitely worthwhile. However, if you have a demanding and stressful job, it is sometimes advisable to book a hotel, as they take care of you completely. You don’t have to worry about food or keeping your room clean. So you can fall straight into bed late in the evening, after a strenuous job in Berlin. Usually the customer or your model agency will book the hotel anyway. This is the advantage of management, we take care of all your concerns! This way you can fully concentrate on your career and get the right input from your management to develop your career.

New York, Paris, London & Milan: Model will be abroad

If you want to make it to the top, you should have a goal as a model. You should work abroad sooner or later! Although you already have many options in Germany and already live in a large market for advertising and fashion, there are even larger jobs and campaigns abroad. You already know the “Big Four” from Fashion Weeks all over the world. For models abroad, there are still many more interesting markets. In Europe, for example, there are still Istanbul, Athens and Barcelona. In Asia, there are several well-known and emerging cities. As a model, you can work here in Seoul, in Tokyo, Hong Kong or hang next to Hong Kong, Gzenshen. As a model, the world is open to you.

International Modeln: Chand from Stockholm visiting Germany / Shooting Time

In our new small model docu we accompanied Chand in Germany for three days. Together with Oliver Rudolph Chand shoots for trueprodigy. The fire sells in over 35 countries! So that the looks in the new look book, the shop and the store elements are right, the label Chand from Stockholm flew in. We accompanied Chand backstage, in the hotel, in the gym but also at breakfast. A little insight for New Faces!

The requirement for the international career is a good modelbook and good measurements

While the fashion metropolises of the “Big Four” are more inclined to rely on the classic model dimensions, in cities like Istanbul, Athens or Hong Kong they also have more or less chances with a few centimeters. The sought-after types differ from country to country. In North America they are classic models but sexy guys are doing well too. In Europe, one also looks for classic models, much is produced by advertising but also with normal, everyday types. In Paris, London and Milan, there are also good opportunities for new faces when girls have the perfect size, plus long hair. Guys arrive here well, if they rather still carry the childlike and thus rather androgy than male act. In Asia you are looking for less classic models than sweet, cute, European guys.

How are the fees different worldwide?

There are extremely many jobs in the metropolises worldwide. The fees in the individual countries, including the commissions of the agencies, are extremely different. Of course you have the best salaries in American and European capitals like New York, Paris but also Hamburg and Berlin. There is less then in the southern European cities such as Athens and Istanbul but also in the Arab Emirates. Relatively little you get as a model in the Asian countries, where there are exceptions, such as Japan, South Korea and free trade zones such as Shanghai. Anyway, as a New Face you start far below, you run first shows, you take part in many castings.

Casting! Casting! Casting! Production cities in southern Europe and Asia

Of course most of the models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”. But many go for the Bookaufbau for a few months in cities that you first not with fashion and connects, but are a very own microcosm. These include cities such as Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here products are produced for the whole world. Not just fashion, but also electronics or toys. Many producers are interested in making photo shoots and video shoots on site. Here are the productions much cheaper. As a result, the teams are bigger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

Elephant, dinghy or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! For your own bookbuilding these countries are a real Eldorado, because you directly get extremely many different jobs. There are also big brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers right here. So you can quickly reach international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you as a model in Germany already earn as New Faces four-figure amounts, here are only a few hundred euros. While German agencies strictly respect rights of use, a subsequent remuneration is often not so sure. The A & O is a big agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and had good experiences.

Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

At some point the moment will come when your model agent or modeling agency will talk to you about foreign and placement issues. In principle, there are two different forms of placement abroad.

Direct Booking – direct booking of the model for commercials and shootings

Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of collaboration for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings, model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so they have new interesting models for their clients. In high-priced jobs, it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or also world-wide. That’s why agencies like to pick up good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests will always be forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measures, picture and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck, you will quickly get your first bookings. Since these are “direct”, you will not have to go to a casting before, you will be booked and travel to the production site. However, it is much more profitable for you to give on the spot, for “On Stay”.

On Stay – Two to three months working abroad

The supreme discipline for models: Conquer the world! At On Stay, you’ll travel to a partner agency for sixty to ninety days as a model. Especially at the beginning you live in Model-WGs and you are on countless auditions every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to fully concentrate on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school before they start their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are in the stage of “Never Seen Before” and you are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it as a model internationally.

On Stay Expiration – How to live during your stay

First of all, as a model, you must actively choose to try abroad. Active decision-making is important as you are involved with big agencies and clients at an early age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts are closed and maybe booked airline tickets. If you then have a few days in advance, it will not have a positive effect on your career as trust is lost. It is also important for you to have everything carefully considered in advance. You will be in a foreign land and live with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you’re still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always accompany you with good advice on your way. Besides, you always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “on-stay” work? Do I cost the money? With a good modeling agency behind you, your stay abroad is as well planned as a package holiday. Weeks or even months before the trip contracts are closed. So you know very early, when you will travel, where you will live, who is your local contact and much more.

An On Stay will never cost you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you have no investment as a model. The partner agency abroad assumes all your costs in advance. These include the air tickets, the accommodation but also on-site services such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs will be deducted from your earnings. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. That’s what we call “minus balance”. You definitely gain experience, certainly visual material and it does not cost you a penny. Good modeling agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an on-stay, the agency will firmly believe in you and the success you could have abroad. Also, the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

Guarantee Contract – guaranteed income and great jobs

Models who have made it far, many customers and an absolutely fantastic book will gradually get their first “Garantuee Contracts”. Then you even get a guaranteed minimum income from the agencies. They do that when you are so good at modeling that in theory you do not have to spend any more time abroad. Or, you travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you made it here, congratulations.

At some point you will only travel. Not for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. At some point, your network has grown so much that your management completely takes over the administration of your time. You get constant inquiries and have to plan your life exactly for all trips.

If you have not had the question in your mind for a while, then maybe now.

How much does a successful model make?

As I said, at the beginning of your career, you will usually be doing small jobs for a relatively small fee. Models that manage it will definitely have the chance to make an incredible amount of money. Of course I can not name exact salaries, but I still want to give you an insight. In Germany, you’ll get fees for most shoots and shoots that are in the four-digit range. Some fall in the three-digit range, for example, for small labels that one finds sympathetic. Advertising commercials bring fast high four-digit, sometimes five-digit amounts. That depends on how many production days it is, in how many countries the advertisement is broadcast and in which media. For a large commercial, for example, for a luxury manufacturer, it can then be twenty to fifty thousand euros or US dollars. Although the borders are open at the top, some of them succeed at a very young age to much success such as supermodel Cara Delevingne or Beckham offspring Brooklyn Beckham. For his first Burberry campaign, he got a whopping $ 57,000, at age 19. It pays to travel, piece by piece: Berlin, Milan, Paris, New York.
