Read more about models in London here.

Modeling in London: basis and requirements

As London is one of the most sought after cities to work as a model, you need to be well prepared to score with the important brands and brands. It’s important that you have a good portfolio. You want to become a model and you want to do it at Cocaine Models. Here we explain the requirements for models. It is a dream of many young people – photo shoots, Instagram, travel and meet many interesting and at exclusive influencer events colorful people. The truth is, it’s a long road. Our management will give you the best support you can have. But before it gets to the model application, there is a lot to know and learn. The competition for you is fierce, especially between the ages of 15-18. The better prepared you are, the faster you will convince!

3 Ways to Become a Model:

  • Scouting on the street or Instagram
  • Online application with Polaroids
  • Open Model Agency Casting

Living and working in London, Paris & Co.

If you have an agency and your portfolio has been expanded a bit and you have collected good video and image material, your agency will usually approach you to talk about a stay abroad. This opportunity is perfect to get to know the fashion world and to get important jobs through castings. This way you will learn to work independently and with the support of your modeling agency you will be able to enjoy your modeling world carefree. How stays abroad can look like, you can find here:

On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

  • On Stay is a longer-term stay abroad
  • Models live in model WGs and attend pre-scheduled castings
  • Always in contact with mother – and partner agency

On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young 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 will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will 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? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the start of the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes 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.

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

Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation 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 that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take 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 are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

Application, test shooting, casting, jobs: models in London

The classic entry into the modeling career always runs through an application in a modeling agency. Model agencies not only help you get the right jobs and contacts, they also support you in your career and in your path. Most model start with mediated test shootings of their agencies, with renowned photographers. Here you can prove yourself as a model for the first time! It depends on your posing but also on your facial expressions.

You can show how changeable you are and how versatile you can be. But you can also prove that you are motivated and ambitious at the photo shoot set.

What do you need to be aware of as a New Face in London?

For you as a newface in the modeling industry, it is important to adhere to the basic principles of punctuality, loyalty, honesty, reliability and ambition. If you meet these criteria, you can go far as a model and later work internationally as a model in London and other cities. Especially as a new face, i.e. beginner, it is naturally more challenging to gain a foothold in cities like London. The world is full of beautiful and interesting models. So it is even more important to concentrate on the essentials and to do the tasks you get from your model agency properly.

If you want to know more about modeling and career, you will find everything you need to know in our big and detailed model guide.

Springboard to an international career

Once in London, the international competition of the most beautiful models from all six continents reaches a new level. Because each of the models that has made it this far pursues the same goal to run at the big fashion weeks and to present the latest collections of the most famous designers. Of course, only the models who have achieved this goal with the help of a modeling agency, such as Gigi Hadid, become publicly known. The many unknown faces of the modeling industry are quickly forgotten. What makes these lucky few stand out today, besides their jobs, is the promotion of themselves on social media. From Instagram to Facebook, a successful modeling career today involves a lot more initiative than just photo shoots or catwalk appearances. In the end, however, it’s always luck that decides which model people will still remember in 10 or 20 years.

Traveling as a model in London

Besides the work as a model, you should of course also explore the city in which you are. Often you live as a model in a model flat share or know some through castings, with which you can also tour around. London’s streets are full of fashion boutiques, vintage shops and interesting exhibitions. If you’re lucky, twice a year there’s a chance you can pop along to London Fashion Week and maybe even walk in it. We’ve picked out the best locations for you to take some time out and produce the best Instagram photos:

Becoming a Model in New York: Application, Casting & Jobs

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 big market for advertising and fashion, there are even bigger jobs and campaigns abroad. You already know the “Big Four” from Fashion Weeks all over the world. For models abroad, however, there are many more interesting markets. Besides Milan and Paris, New York is the hotspot for young models!

New York Trip: Modeling Abroad

You have built your book so far? Your model agency gives you the unique opportunity to fly abroad and work from there? Then you should not miss the experience. To work successfully as a model abroad is the supreme discipline! Besides the beautiful sights and people in New York, you have the chance to go to castings and get important jobs there. With Cocaine Models as your management, you have the opportunity to have an unforgettable time in New York.

If you are not a model yet, live in America and want to apply, here are the first important tips:

Becoming a model: Requirements in New York

For models there are many requirements, for example, in height, weight, as well as in the resulting proportions. Los Angeles also has strict measurements when it comes to international fashion clients, commercials and fashion shows. Of course there are always exceptions, the spirit of the times changes the fashion world, the media but also advertising. What we as a model agency, also our model scouts pay special attention to, for example, are small, extra highlights, such as freckles or tooth gaps. So there is no perfect model, not even in LA. But as a model you come very close to the ideal of beauty. As described, you can not summarize it all together have e.g. give a few guidelines.

Requirements to become a model:

  • For female models, the ideal case is
  • Body size women 174 to 180 cm
  • Beautiful and / or striking face
  • Slim proportions

For men models is the ideal case:

  • Body size from 184 to circa 192 cm
  • Slim and athletic proportions
  • Muscle build must not be too extreme
  • Cutie or striking

Online application with Polaroids

Free of charge and fast, the application is also online. You can upload your footage on our website and provide the most important contact information. This way our scout gets a first impression of you.
If you are shortlisted, you will be notified and invited to the office or to the call.

  • Become a model in New York

Entering your contact information is very simple, for this there is a ready-made application form. In it you only have to enter a few data, for example, your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and email address and your height. You also have to send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo.

Open model agency casting

Likewise, we offer open casting a few times a year. Since we have also set our foothold in America and represent models there, know designers, photographers and clients, we would be happy if you are also at our next open casting.

How does such an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many people as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone through photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively costly for model agencies to organize. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to organize such live castings, because as described, you call the people thereby know much better!

Queue – at open castings a bigger queue often forms when 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It’s best to relax, find a comfortable spot and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.

Jobs: fashion show, social, e-commerce, campaign & TV

If you’re wondering what kind of jobs await you in New York: starting with fittings and showrooms, for fashion retailers and buyers, to fashion shows, with something more perfect. But typical model jobs in our agency are also social media shoots, e.g. for Instagram, as well as e-commerce shoots for new collections and campaigns. Once you’ve mastered all these levels, it’s on to campaigns, photo shoots and commercials. With broadcast, on national TV, streaming providers on an international level, in the cinema, as well as on your smartphone, in apps or in the browser.

Here again a small overview, to the different model jobs:

  • showroom
  • Fashion show
  • Social Media
  • E-commerce
  • Campaigns
  • Commercials for TV and web

Our models who have already worked abroad and had the experience of exploring the fashion world as a young model:

Working in New York: On Stay Procedure

When you are under contract with us at the agency, you will always get emails from our bookers. They will help you to coordinate and not to miss any casting. But first of all, as a model, you must actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will be dealing with big agencies and clients at a young 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 signed and maybe airline tickets are booked. If you break off a few days beforehand, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and also living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. In addition, 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? Does it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package vacation. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the start of the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs will be deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an on stay, the agency believes 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.

Most models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”, of course. However, many also go for a few months to cities that are not associated with fashion at first, but which are a microcosm all of their own. These include cities like Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here, products are produced for the whole world. Not only fashion, but also electronics and toys. Many producers are interested in doing photo shoots and video shoots directly on location. Here the productions are much cheaper. Thus, the teams are larger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

Elephant, helicopter or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! These countries are a real Eldorado for building up your own book, because you directly get extremely many different jobs. In addition, there are large brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers directly here. So you can also quickly get international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you can earn four-figure sums as a model in Germany even as a New Face, here it’s only a few hundred euros. While German agencies also pay strict attention to usage rights, subsequent remuneration is often not so certain. The A&O here is a large agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and has had good experiences.

Guaranteed income and great jobs

Models who have made it far, had many clients 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 as a model that in theory you don’t need to travel abroad anymore. Or, you already travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you’ve made it here, congratulations.

At some point, you’ll just be traveling. No longer for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. Because at some point your network will have grown so much that your management will completely take over the management of your time. You get requests all the time and you have to plan your life and all your trips exactly.

New York City

How great would it be if you could spend your next year there and experience the New York fashion world?

    Online editing explained: Basics

    You don’t have any work experience yet, but would like to do an internship with us? Learn here the first details about the job as an online editor and even more specifically content marketing manager. What does your job look like?

    Online editing: Job description

    Web editors prepare content for blogs and websites. They work closely with website managers to create unique, well-structured, readable and engaging content. This regular, new content, increases traffic (amount of visitors) to the site. The better the site is received by existing visitors, the more new readers your writing will attract.

    This job requires an excellent understanding of people, thinking and structures (setup), as well as a good sense of the principles and standards on our part.

    Working environment: Content Management Systems

    Online editors also need to know how to use content management systems (CMS) and insert images into blog posts and websites. So most of this work is done with a content management system. With us, you’ll be working with WordPress, the world’s most popular content management system, to do this. You will regularly write new content for our editorial calendar and learn from one of the best in online marketing.

    One of the main tasks of a web editor is to prepare articles for publication on the web. Online editors also make text more interactive and engaging by including images, videos and links to other sites in the piece. You’ll usually then also use image editing software like Photoshop to resize or crop images. For links to other websites, you make sure they open in a new tab to keep readers on the page. In addition, you check that the links and media are properly formatted and functional.

    Plan contributions

    As an online editor, you schedule posts according to the website’s predetermined publishing schedule. For example, a website may publish three articles per day, at certain times. Then you will make sure that these posts are actually published at the specified time. You will also schedule social media posts with links to the articles to attract even more visitors to the site when the articles are published.

    Content Marketing Manager

    Content marketing is a specific niche in the field of digital marketing. It is a way for businesses to connect with their audience and new people without selling them their brand or service!

    There are various mediums through which they make these connections, such as blog posts, social media posts, emails, gated content, and videos. Content marketing and creation is truly an “art form” and requires a lot of practice. For you, it’s about designing creative and interesting content that connects with a specific audience (target audience).

    Added value from experts

    It’s value-added content that helps the reader, answers a question or addresses a problem in a way that’s entertaining to read, watch (graphics, images) or listen to (video embed). Becoming known as an expert on a topic builds customer trust and loyalty, especially if you continue to focus on content that adds value to your audience.

    The purpose of content marketing is to move a person to action. Content should entice someone with valuable, engaging, and relevant information. The job of the content marketer is to determine not only how to do this, but also how to evaluate the effectiveness of the strategies employed using metrics.

    A content marketer must be both a storyteller and a data analyst. Ultimately, your goal as a content marketer is to work as part of the company’s overall digital marketing strategy by identifying the target audience and engaging with them in a way that makes sense to them.

    Take a look at the day-to-day tasks of a content marketer.

    Content: Website, email, social media

    You’ll create a vision for blogs, emails, and social media posts. As a content marketer, you’ll work with a team of writers or freelancers to provide topics. A content marketer can and should also be able to write. To create quality written content, you need excellent writing skills and must be able to persuade your audience without overtly selling. You can do this by understanding the needs of your target audience.

    Advanced Duties: Content Marketing Manager

    Your extended responsibilities as a Content Marketing Manager are:

    1. Research trends in your field
    2. Integrate keywords into your strategy and evaluate effectiveness
    3. Know your audience and what you can do for them
    4. Creating engaging and original blog posts, emails, and social media posts that are targeted to your audience and based on current trends

        Internal Model Casting: Scouting for Milan

        As soon as you have worked as a model for 1-2 years besides school (build-up, not a full-time job), you will start your international modeling career after successfully completing school. Here you can see a small example of how international modelling is done for Paris and Milan.

        Catwalk Coaching: Training

        When many New Faces come together, we sometimes, once a year, organize an extra training for our New Faces, as preparation for the big brands.

        Model agency interview: outfit, casting & questions

        We have received many questions, especially about the topic, do I have to prepare for an interview in a modeling agency? Whether yes or no, how does such an interview generally proceed? Here we want to give you a brief insight into how your interview at a modeling agency will go.

        Preparation for the interview outfit and participants

        Many have already had interviews, for example for small jobs or even job offers. The preparation for an interview in a model agency is not as demanding as it is for a normal job. You don’t have to prepare any documents, you don’t need a resume or anything like that. All you need is the right outfit and of course to show up on time.

        Since you don’t have to prepare any documents, you can fully focus on your casting outfit.

        Whether young men or young women, the casting outfit is relatively similar for both. The absolute basis are always discreet outfits. After all, today is not about winning the prize for the Outfit of the Day, it’s about you, your facial expressions, your personality. Accordingly, you should go for plain black trousers, a simple black or white shirt, for women a top. The shoes should be just like shirt and pants discreet and not distract from you.

        Women have to pay attention to two special features, instead of sporty shoes you should always wear high heels. In addition, you should also have a bikini with you, so that your figure can be seen if necessary. In short, you need the following:

        • Plain clothes
        • Black pants
        • Black or white shirt or for ladies tops
        • Plain shoes, for women additionally high heels
        • Women additionally with bikini
        • If you have photos, bring them on your phone or tablet

        If you have already gained experience as a model, e.g. during your first photo shoots with photographers, you can of course bring your first photo series with you, or a selection of your best photos. Unlike in the past, you no longer need printed photos in a model folder, it is sufficient if you take your photos with you on your tablet or mobile phone.

        Many people visit a big city for the first time during their first interview at a modeling agency. So that nothing can go wrong, you should still write down the following data in your mobile phone, so that you have everything important with you in any case:

        • Exact address of the model agency
        • Telephone number of the model agency
        • If possible, phone number of your contact person

        Here is another tip from us as management! If possible, don’t be there 5 minutes before the appointment, but don’t be in the office 30 minutes before either. Ideally you should always be on time, that means two or three minutes before the job or your first casting starts. But it is important that you are already there beforehand. Ideally at least half an hour before, the rest of the time you can spend with a coffee or a delicious smoothie in a café.

        Punctuality and a smile

        Punctuality is very important, as already mentioned, you should always be on time. So don’t be there an hour early, but also not 10 minutes. 2 or 3 minutes before the casting starts, you should be there!

        Therefore, plan your journey carefully in advance so that nothing can go wrong. Because if the appointment goes well, this is your ticket to life as a model in a large and reputable agency.

        Here’s a little tip from our management! Always enter the agency, the office or the room with a smile. Smiling is often already half the battle, because as a model it is very often about advertising, that is sales and emotions. In addition, sympathy always plays a role in every job interview. You should use this for you, not only at the first casting in your model agency, also when you are later at castings in front of customers, for fashion shows, commercials or online shops.

        Interview and contents

        The actual interview usually lasts between 20 minutes and an hour. Depending on how far you are already, that is, whether you are still a student and have 2 years of school ahead of you, or whether you are already ready to travel, so that you could also work in the big cities like London, New York but also Hong Kong.

        In the interview, it is for the agency or the model agency first of all to find out whether you are really 100% behind what you want to do. Because if the model agency later sends you to big and international clients, it can not depend on luck! That’s why you don’t start as a model with the big campaigns, but with small jobs.

        Many have the dream of modeling, cover shoot for Vogue, Elle or Harpers Bazaar. But they forget that it is a long way. All the supermodels in the world have worked for years to make their breakthrough at some point. That’s why as a model you have to be patient for yourself and your career.

        Of course, mum and dad will also be there when it comes to the first interview, for example if you are only 15, 16 or 17 years old. Because your parents will always be a big part of your life, they will also be intensively involved in the planning from the beginning.

        These topics and much more will be discussed during the first interview at your modeling agency.

        Admission to the model agency and waiting time

        The decision whether you will be accepted in the model agency or not, you usually do not get in the interview. Mostly, a few Polaroids are made of you, which are quick photos with the mobile phone or with the camera. In addition, one or the other walk video is made, in which you show what you could present at a fashion show. Subsequently, the respective model agency discusses in the team. This often happens not on the same evening but perhaps at the end of the week.

        Another first reality check! Because even if you later go to the big client casting or are proposed for jobs, you often have to wait for the decision. If 20 models are invited to a casting and there is only one job, you will also often have to deal with rejections. Don’t hang your head! Nobody becomes a star overnight.

        Marketing internship: online marketing, advertising and fashion in Cologne

        Many people want to move something and be creative in their work. Project management and content marketing are only 2 of the topics that cause a lot of curiosity in marketing when you think of a media agency. Writing articles about fashion, influencers or camping, producing real content for real companies and becoming a part of something bigger. The perfect interplay of creativity and business makes an agency like this something very special. If you are interested in social media and the topics of this time, you should think about a career in an advertising agency and an internship is the perfect start into the real working life.

        Internship: advertising agency, marketing and fashion in Cologne

        You can imagine a lot under an internship in an advertising agency. You could probably talk for a week about which areas of responsibility you will be taking on and which skills you will be given. In this article I will show you how varied and interesting the everyday life in a marketing agency is. From the people you meet, to the skills you acquire and the unique moments that this job offers.

        My biggest Learnings in Marketing

        One thing is clear to me: my personal development during the internship was enormous. Not only did I get an incredible insight into a completely new world, but I also got a taste of the real and exciting professional life. Every day motivated me more and helped me to find new goals for myself as a person and professionally. At the beginning all this might sound a bit much, especially if you are looking for the first experience for your future and just coming out of school. But every day tasks and the necessary thinking for them became easier for me and as soon as you understand the priorities of the internship, nothing stands in your way. Of course it is scary at first to take on a responsible task in a big agency, but don’t worry! You will be taken by the right people and you will get a feeling for your tasks and the creative input. On the way you often notice that some things are harder for you than other team members and that you may have to work harder on certain challenges than others. But that is exactly what makes the job so exciting. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that’s how the dynamics in the group balance each other out.

        • Taking responsibility – growing by yourself
        • Teamwork – learning to rely on others and recognising your role in the team
        • Recognizing own strengths and weaknesses – making good use of strengths and working on the weaknesses

        What’s it about? Internship in a marketing agency

        Marketing has long been an important topic for many companies and is always and by everyone needed. Good marketing means good business and who wouldn’t want their business to be good? So there is always something to do and you get to know the most interesting people and companies. The most important thing is to get involved with new customers and to get the spirit of different companies, be it a grocery chain, a fashion company or a camping distribution company. You learn to dive into different worlds and to inspire people with different topics. Of course, sales should be the main focus, but it is exactly this motivation that is the reason why you have to tackle so many different projects in marketing. Because every customer is unique and needs different strategies to generate success and new customers. It is a process that takes several months, but in the end it is a proud moment for every single person in the team when you see that goals and profits have been achieved together and that you were able to make a customer happy.

        • Establish and maintain contacts – be open to new things and bring enthusiasm
        • Continuity – setting and pursuing goals
        • Reliability – taking responsibility and being there for customers

        My internship: model agency, content marketing and fashion magazine

        Last year I decided to start a comprehensive internship in a media agency and I can proudly say that it has brought me much further personally. The field of marketing is so diversified that no day is boring and you work on new projects all the time. The variety in the job is very important if you decide to do this job for a longer period of time and that’s why an internship is the perfect way to get an insight into all the tasks.

        Consulting & project management

        In this subject area of the internship you get a lot of responsibility. I’ve always grown with the tasks, because suddenly I’m the contact person for everyone involved. Everyone in the team gets their own area of expertise, of course precisely tailored to the strengths of the individual, you learn to form a real team and together as a group you learn to build something great. When a project is coming up, it means full concentration on this one topic! You have to go to different meetings and often go to other cities with your colleagues to visit customers. The variety that this topic brings with it is amazing, because you get to meet an incredible number of people and get an insight into the work of other positions and jobs and that can be very inspiring. No project is like the one before and the results make you proud every time.

        • A sense of responsibility is encouraged
        • Teamwork is perfected
        • Many new places and people through meetings & Co

        Content marketing:

        As soon as you dive into the world of content marketing, you dive into a whole new world. The feeling of being heard is just great and that’s exactly how it feels to write lyrics for a large audience. You put yourself in another world and just start writing. After each article it’s a little bit easier and you learn a lot about topics that you might have been familiar with before. You start researching on topics and become a real professional, who is then the contact person for the respective area. If you want to pursue a career in journalism, you have the chance to learn real skills in editing and writing. In addition, learning to write and rewrite in greater detail extremely promotes the eloquence of the individual. Language usage becomes much clearer and more direct and one can increasingly decide which topics and sub-topics have a certain relevance and which ones belong in the background. When talking to customers, this comes in handy, of course. Not only the know-how and the mass of context with which one can shine, but also the way of speaking and communicating itself is promoted to a large extent. Content marketing is so important because it ensures a top ranking in search engines and is therefore very relevant for customers to be found and generate attention. Content marketing is an indispensable part of a marketing agency and is enriching in many different ways for the client as well as for the trainee in his whole life.

        • Expression is improved
        • Language usage for customers or other partners is perfected
        • Context / background knowledge is considerably expanded
        • Top placement in search engines through content
        • You become a professional in a variety of subject areas and can link topics

        Online marketing: search engine to social media

        Online marketing is becoming more and more important for companies or businesses every year, because the internet does not stop growing and has been firmly integrated into society for a long time. It is no longer possible to imagine life without advertising your own products via social media or YouTube ads. Influencer marketing is also a subcategory of online marketing. In this area, too, one thing is very clear: it never gets boring and new ideas and innovation are needed. So if you are looking for creativity with a marketing twist, you are in the right place. It all starts with social media accounts. It is important to be present and above all it is important to generate attention and fans. As an agency we are responsible for helping clients to discuss, plan ahead and create content. If you want more attention, you can find partners to cooperate with, for example known influencers who are paid for product placement. Often real long term collaborations develop and together you can look back on a successful career. The agency is also there to help, because in our influencer pool there are many open and friendly personalities who are just as happy about a cooperation. The agency is also responsible for placing ads on Facebook or Youtube, for example. After content has been produced, advertisements are now being placed to make even more people aware of the brand.

        • Social Media Accounts – produce creative content and plan ahead
        • Placement of Ads – Social Media in connection with advertising
        • Organizing cooperation – influencers and product placements

        My greatest learnings in marketing

        Marketing is all about supporting customers in their strategic but also operative work in the media. All this with the big goal of reaching the right target group. Here I was able to gain my first insight. Planning, organizing but also being creative was a lot of fun.

        The practical work is all about publishing! Creativity is required in all areas, whether it is the classic placement of advertisements, blog posts, posts by influencers or creative content for the social media account. There is no limit to your imagination and you can let your creativity run wild. Apart from that, it is also extremely important to work in a structured way and to be in constant communication with the client in order to coordinate my plans and ideas. This makes the exchange via e-mail, but also telephone calls or meetings particularly important.

        • Support for customers to reach the target group
        • Different media are conceivable: advertisements, blog posts, influencer marketing, etc.
        • Exchange and communication with the customer is our top priority

        What’s it about? Internship in a marketing agency

        A marketing agency attracts clients from very different industries. Right from the start, we coordinate where the goal of the respective brand lies. Are there more visitors on the website? Should the turnover be increased? Should a certain number of followers be reached?

        Each different goal, each customer needs his own strategy, his own concept and his own approach.

        It is also important that not only the goal is defined correctly but also the target group. When defining the target group, it quickly becomes clear on which medium should publish and which is not particularly suitable. To address a target group of 40-55 year olds, for example, you won’t find your voice heard on TikTok as on Facebook.

        • Define target group (example: how old are the brand’s customers?)
        • Select publishing platform / medium

        My internship: Model Agency, Content Marketing and Fashion Magazine

        Not only do you learn a lot about marketing and social media, you also get extremely deep insights into search engine optimization. Depending on the focus of your internship, you can also get small insights into model booking, consulting and project management.

        An internship at Cocaine Models is very versatile, because Cocaine Models is much more than just a model agency. Cocaine Models has an exclusive fashion magazine, FIV Magazine, as well as its own Social Media Agency.

        Creative teamwork and independent work

        Through the different sections (models, magazine, social media) you get an amazing amount of insights into very different areas of the media world. Starting with research up to the independent conception and publication of articles. But you will also learn how to use the most important software. For example with Photoshop to create graphics. You’ll learn how to do website analytics, evaluate customers and devise new strategies, and create creative content for social media.

        There’s something for everyone here and it’s very important that every intern can take valuable content with them. Although this is an internship, working independently is essential. It’s not just about working through the work, but about your creativity, your input and diligence.

        6 months internship: Procedure

        During my six-month internship at Cocaine Models, I got to know an incredible number of different topics. I started by interviewing influencers for the fashion magazine. I learned so much in my first week: how to contact influencers, how to communicate with management, how to research the influencer and how to create the questionnaire. This was the perfect start for me. I learned how to write e-mails, keep in touch and communicate with management. I was shown how to approach the research so that I still stay within the time frame and get feedback on the questions. As soon as I had the first interviews back, I was shown directly how to embed everything in WordPress and create my own articles. Afterwards I was able to gain my first Photoshop experience when I created the article images. Et voilá – my first articles were already published. At that time it was very exciting when my articles were published, today it is part of my everyday life! It is nice to be heard and to live out your creativity. Gradually, different areas of responsibility were added, but content marketing is always in focus. After my six-month internship I was even taken on and have been working for CM for over 2 years now!

        Consulting & Project Management

        In addition to the marketing tasks, you also have the opportunity to get a taste of the topics and focuses of the model agency. During my internship I had the opportunity to work in the booking department after an extensive training in content marketing. Every day new clients are added here, who are planning a shooting, a campaign or a video shoot for the next commercial. For them you are the first contact person, whether by phone or e-mail. The fact that you are given so much responsibility is not a matter of course, especially during an internship, and it feels good! Of course, organisation and communication is the most important thing here and therefore you will always be accompanied and get help. Of course you should bring the first basics with you, the rest you will learn with us! Meanwhile I have participated in and organized many projects, from Fashion Week Shows to music video shoots.

        • Communication and organization are the be-all and end-all
        • Contact person for customers and models

        Content marketing and top rankings in search engines

        The focus of your internship will be on content and online marketing. This is about supporting customers with valuable content in the form of blog posts and thus ranking them high in search engines. In content marketing, I have written numerous articles on various topics. About some topics you already know and can hit the keys directly. But for some other topics you don’t have the overview as a trainee who just finished school. This is no problem at all and almost the better! I like to do a lot of research for my articles so that they deliver the best possible content. This way I become a little expert in the field myself and can learn an incredible amount and acquire knowledge. When you deal with certain topics so intensively, it stays in your head for a while!

        Content marketing is not only about writing simple texts. You want to impart knowledge so that everyone understands it but also every person who is already in the topic can acquire something new.  With time, not only the speed and quantity of texts improves, but you also learn new terms and ways of expressing yourself. This is especially advantageous if you want to go on to study.

        • Support for customers in the form of blog posts
        • With content marketing you can achieve higher rankings in search engines
        • Writing articles in hand Expand his vocabulary, acquire knowledge and improve his fluency

        Online marketing: search engine to social media

        Online marketing includes any form of marketing on the Internet. This can be e-mail marketing, content marketing, influencer marketing or social media marketing. As you can see, almost everything that is known from the advertising world belongs here. Why do so many companies rely on online marketing? Simply because you can reach most people via the internet. Even though the focus is mainly on content marketing, you will also get an insight into social media marketing during your internship. An online presence on social media platforms is elementary for every company. Also for us! We are always happy to take on board new ideas from creative minds and thus constantly improve our social media marketing.

        Internship Application: Tips for your cover letter and CV

        Tips for your cover letter and resume, your cover letter, your resume – what belongs in a good application?

        1. Tips for your cover letter and resume
        2. Lifestyle: Your most important skills
        3. Testimonials
        4. Certificates

        Tips for your cover letter and resume

        Applications always have the same pattern, as a rule, an application should include a CV, a cover letter, references and, if applicable, references or certificates. However, each company focuses on different details! Some pay special attention to the design, some to your work experience or school career, others mainly to your personal cover letter. But what is always important in all applications is spelling and grammar. Therefore, edit your application documents with extreme caution and always let a second person take a look at them! Inform yourself in advance about the company and its activities. What impression does the company make on you? Is it particularly young and dynamic or rather old-established and meticulous? Depending on this, you can always adapt and formulate your cover letter. However, it is important that wherever you apply, the recruiter can see that you are motivated and ready to learn new things. Always remember that first impressions count and decide whether you will be invited for an interview or not!

        Applications always have the same structure:

        1. Cover letter
        2. Curriculum vitae
        3. Testimonials
        4. Certificates

        Tip! If you want to apply for an internship with us, you don’t need to attach extra certificates and references! Instead, write a motivated cover letter in which we see that you would like to work with media and in management!

        Write a cover letter: The first look

        The most important thing is that your cover letter gives a first impression of you and arouses interest in getting to know you! Express your motivation and show that you have already made yourself aware of the activities in the company. You don’t need an endlessly long cover letter, one A4 page is enough! Make sure that you do not make any spelling mistakes. As you will spend most of your internship in the online editorial department, correct German spelling is extremely important. The best thing is to let your family or friends take a look at your application.

        CV: Your most important skills

        Your curriculum vitae includes your personal data as well as your full name, date of birth, address, etc. In addition, your telephone number and e-mail address are required so that you can be reached. Make sure that your full school education and all your professional experiences are included. Experience in working life is always an advantage, whether you have already done an internship in an advertising agency or just a temporary job in a café. If you have already gained knowledge or certificates that fit into the field of editing, fashion or marketing, you are welcome to add them! You speak several languages? Great! This is a great advantage especially for our multilingual online fashion magazine. Always mention all the languages you speak with the corresponding knowledge level.

        • Personal data
        • Contact options such as mobile phone number, e-mail address
        • School career
        • Professional experience
        • Languages
        • Hobbies

        Motivation? Tell me about yourself

        What I can tell you from my experience: Make it short and sweet and show that you really want the job. Because, the competition is fierce. Just don’t make your cover letter too long. In the best case, it should only be half a DIN-A4 page, but no more than a whole page. It’s not about long phrases, but about getting a picture of you and showing that you are really interested in the job.

        • Show that you really want the internship
        • Keep it short: Your cover letter should ideally be half a DIN-A4 page

        Content Marketing (PR and advertising agency) – Working student m/f/*

          Model agency without fees: Serious agencies never want money from you!

          You want to go to a modeling agency with no fees? Many people ask themselves at the beginning, if they want to become a model, do I have to pay money for a model agency? Serious model agencies want to earn money together with you as a model. This in turn means that you do not pay any fees for the agency admission.

          Always watch out for fees!

          As already mentioned, in a serious model agency you will not have any fees or costs to be represented in the agency. The agency gives you as a management a jump start and does not charge you any costs.

          If you want to apply online in a model agency, make sure that no costs are mentioned in advance. You should also always have a look at the model selection, here you can estimate whether it is a mass file, or a management that deals with a few people. Model management costs a lot of time. The more international the jobs, the more complex the organization and planning for the agents. Therefore, pay attention to the quality of the model selection during the first online visit of the model agency and especially to the fact that no costs or fees arise for you to be accepted in the model agency.

          Model agency student internship

          For many students, completing an internship in a model agency is an absolute dream! Also in our model agency students have the chance to apply for an internship. Due to the many requests, not everyone can get a seat. Nevertheless it is worthwhile to write an application! Because with a little luck and the right timing, you can manage to do your internship in an international modeling agency.

          Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne and Düsseldorf

          From all corners of Germany come our models, but also our customers. We help our customers from the fashion, automotive, electronics, hotel, real estate and many other industries to find the ideal model for their next campaign. The job of a model agency is very demanding, you are responsible for many people and therefore also a kind of team leader. Whether it’s about jobs, briefings for castings, travel planning, but also the production of daily updated photos and videos is part of the job. The internship is quite challenging and therefore you as a student intern should always be highly motivated and have a desire for the job. But you should already have a certain interest in the fashion world!

          How long does a student internship last?

          The length of student internships varies greatly depending on the school and the type of school. Some student internships only last a few days, they are intended as a trial day for orientation. Other schools often require a two-week internship by spending 14 days in the company and learning practically what it means to work with customers and to work together with other people in a team.

          Do you need previous knowledge for the student internship?

          Working for a few days or weeks in a model agency as a student is especially good to inform you for your later studies or vocational training. No special previous knowledge is expected from you! The most important thing is that you are motivated yourself and feel like getting a taste of the job. The work is very often on the computer. You work with e-mails, graphics programs but also with spreadsheets like Excel. Planning and coordination in particular are part of this job.

          How do I apply for a student internship?

          Of course, the application for a student internship does not have to be as extensive as the application for a job. If you are applying for a normal job, you should usually have a cover letter, font size 10, on a DIN A4 page. You should have a resume for that. Here should be listed chronologically what you have done so far. The academic curriculum vitae covers everything from school and university studies to professional careers, i.e. internships and jobs.

          If you want to apply as a student trainee, a few short lines in which you introduce yourself are enough. Write something about yourself, your hobbies and why you would like to work in a model agency! Your cover letter should definitely include your contact details, i.e. your full address, telephone number and e-mail address. Don’t forget to also enter the period you want to complete the student internship. Afterwards you send everything to the respective model agency. If you want to apply specifically for our model agency, you will find the contact details in the main menu!

          Model agency: Size unimportant? Small models and minimum size

          Find a modeling agency that doesn’t care about height? Body size plays a decisive role in most cases. As with athletes, certain body characteristics are important. Whoever fulfils these has a good chance of getting a job. Yet the body size is not defined as precisely as one might think. There are different requirements for different areas. So for certain jobs, size really doesn’t matter. For example for beauty photography. Here often models with a particularly striking face are booked, whereby striking means here, with large recognition value, e.g. by freckles or a minimal tooth gap.

          Surely you also know some international role models who have made it to absolute top models despite a body height of 170 cm. Therefore, your height should not discourage you, for example, if you are under 175 cm as a girl or under 185 cm as a boy. You may have to apply to a few more agencies, but with a little luck there may be an agency that would like to find you perfect in their portfolio.

          If you want to read more about this topic, we have some interesting articles for you:

          Model agency without minimum size: dimensions and weight

          A model agency without a minimum size? This question is asked by many models who are among the classic sizes of Haute Couture and High Fashion. The minimum sizes for haute couture and fashion are 1.75 m for models and 1.85 m for men. Don’t you stand a chance as a model when you’re smaller?

          Here we have some practical tips for you on how to do it as a model, even without a minimum size.

          Apply model agency online – that’s how it works without minimum size

          Before you apply online in a model agency, take a look at the current models. Probably you will find a few models without a minimum size at most model agencies. Because it is not always about fashion shows or high fashion, many customers, e.g. in the online shop or Instagram area, pay less attention to the minimum size of the model. This is more about the facial expressions and the emotions you master as a model. Many model agencies therefore also represent smaller models. That’s why our first tip to you is to take a look at the models of the agencies! If you also discover models that are a bit smaller, then you should send your application online!

          Be honest with your height

          Many who want to be models think it would be clever to cheat yourself a few inches taller. Always be honest! If you are booked for a job later on, many customers will recognize the difference very quickly and will not book you again accordingly. The negative criticism goes naturally also to your agent and/or to your model agency. Therefore you as a model should be honest from the beginning with the measurements and your height. Your modeling agency will appreciate you for who you are!

          What jobs can I do as a model without minimum size?

          Job opportunities you have many. As mentioned above you could work for an Instagram photo shoot, but also for online shops. It is also possible that you will be booked for a commercial, or for a campaign. Your chances are usually much lower when it comes to running a fashion show. Especially at fashion shows it depends on a harmonious overall picture and accordingly the body sizes of the models must harmonize with each other. In addition, the audience, sometimes sitting and sometimes standing. The larger the models are, the more space the product, the fashion collection, occupies.

          Which models did it without minimum size?

          Many models were, or are also without minimum size successfully active as models. They have also made it onto the magazine covers of the international fashion magazines around Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, but also Cosmopolitan, or Marie Claire.

          What you may lack in body size makes you well again with charm and energy! Especially in advertising, good mood and friendliness play a very important role. After all, you should like the new car, or even the new smartphone. If the model already looks bored on the advertising poster, how should the customer develop joy and desire to buy the product? That’s exactly why you have great chances for jobs even as a smaller model, because many customers are particularly concerned with the charisma that you bring along and radiate.

          More about sizes for models? Here you can read our article on the subject: Sizes & Requirements for Models.

          Can I apply to Cocaine Models as a smaller model?

          We are looking forward to your application even if you do not have the minimum size for Haute Couture and High Fashion. After all, we as an agency also do a lot of jobs in the field of advertising, commercials, but also shootings for social media. Whether photos for Instagram, or videos for YouTube. Especially in a media production many different characters are in demand. With diligence, motivation, stamina and the necessary willpower you can go far as a model!

          Model agency for mature men: men’s model 50+

          More customers than you might think at first are looking for a model agency for more mature men! While many young men dream of becoming models, only a small number of older men pursue this goal. Maybe this is your chance.

          Older Men Models – Best Ager

          For older male models, especially for older men (without experience), there is a growing market. This is due to demographic developments in our society alone. Therefore, of course, advertising needs more role models and faces that correspond to the average of society. More and more products are even being designed specifically for an older target group. Today, it is no longer just about topics such as retirement provision, golf or real estate, fashion is also playing an increasingly important role for older men, from travel around the world, through technical products, to smart phones and home entertainment systems. All these products must be marketed through advertising campaigns. This includes posters, advertising films, catalogues, e-mail lists and online ads. The world of advertising is very diverse and large.

          Finding older men is not so easy

          As described above, many young people are convinced that they have the talent to model. Older people rarely pursue this idea. Therefore there is a relatively large market for Best Age Models. At the same time, however, there is not a very large offer. In particular older men models, who bring along all conditions, from emotions up to gestural and mimic acting. While hundreds of models under the age of 30 come to an open casting, people from the older segment hardly appear there. If you would like to apply as a model, or if you have already gained experience as a model and would like to start your career again, then send us your application now!

          Model Agency Sport

          Model agency sport – As a model sport and movement are often in the foreground! Fitness and defined bodies play an important role in many areas for both women and men. Not only as a classical fitness model, but also for fashion jobs, or in order to be able to mediate a sporty and healthy life in a commercial for a new Smartphone, it needs this also . Sport should play an important role in the everyday life of a model anyway.

          Tip! Do you already know our new Commercial Agency for Faces? Now on: STIL Models

          Body posture and radiation of sport model

          When customers book models for sports photography, it is usually a matter of a very good posture or a very good body feeling. It doesn’t matter whether it’s actually a sports production, e.g. a photo shoot for a tennis racket, or a commercial in which a men’s model starts running as a businessman. Movements must look authentic. But there is much more to sport than fitness. Even models who often dance have a very delicate posture and can advertise products differently than models who have less experience in maintaining body tension and are therefore less trained and practiced.

          Caution! Too much training can harm your career

          If you want to assert yourself as a sport and fitness model, you have to stop at a certain point. Because the wider you get, the more muscle you absorb, the more jobs are out of the question for you. Ideally, as a sports model you should always work on the definition of your body. The more you stay in the average spectrum of athletes, the wider the range for you to get jobs. But what jobs can you do as a sports model?

          Sport model wanted for shootings and events

          As a sports model, there are usually two large areas in which you can work.

          Photo and video production for sports and fitness

          The first section is about photo shoots. The more experience you gain, the more you will be booked for advertising films. This means the classic work of a model in front of the camera. Here you work alone with the product, e.g. for a lookbook shooting. On another day you might work with many different products for an online shop shooting. That’s why as a sport and fitness model you need more than just muscle power.

          The charisma in particular plays an important role in the end!

          Do you get a follow-up booking from your customers, or were you too moody and boring on the set? Too boring in the context of models means that you didn’t have enough energy. All in all, this means that you don’t have enough positive charisma and your facial expressions in the photos don’t convey what the customer would like. If every photo looks the same at the end, nobody will be satisfied. That’s why mimic and emotion belong to the work of a sport and fitness model. In particular the positive charisma and the energy ensure that customers find you sympathetic and that the cooperation is immediately more pleasant.

          When shooting photos for online shops, no matter whether it’s about dietary supplements or sports fashion, the following points are important for you:

          • Sports, defined figure
          • Positive aura on the shooting set and in front of customers
          • Mimic for varied results

          The better you get, the more often a model agency will suggest you for video production. As you may have seen at photo shoots, such productions can be very demanding. For you it depends on many different things, you are the person of the day who has to convince the customer of the product. Most of it depends on you! The better you get, the more demanding your jobs will be.

          Commercials and films for sports models

          Anyone who presents himself well, masters emotions and facial expressions, has a healthy dose of self-confidence and can also speak will sooner or later make it into commercials and video films. From a YouTube tutorial for a sports manufacturer, or dietary supplements, to fashion and beauty products, to commercials. Perhaps not necessarily for a sports manufacturer, but rather for a new smartphone, or an automobile manufacturer with advertising photographer! Commercials are, so to speak, the top class for models. Not only are they the most sophisticated, they are also the place where you as a model can earn the most money. There is usually not only a budget for the production itself, but also for the rights of use on the different countries and continents.

          Sport models in advertising

          Even as a “normal model” you will often come into contact with sports or fitness units. When the scene is repeated 20 or 30 times, it’s real work! As you can see here in the new FOREO LUNA (Beauty) commercial with Karen and Korlan:

          Events and fitness fairs

          In addition to the work on the photo shooting set, for sports and fitness models the work on live events and Fitness fairs is a must. Here new products, innovative inventions or sports equipment are presented and new features added. Whether it’s modern technology, e.g. touch displays, or the fun of sports equipment, every company needs attractive, environmentally friendly models and new products.

          At fitness fairs and live events, as well as photo shootings, your presence as a model is just as important. Do you have enough positive charisma? Can you convince the customer, but also the audience, of a product? Can you get them excited about something? Accordingly, a model’s job has a lot to do with communication and of course soft skills, so that you can present yourself positively in smaller conversations and by being present alone. This image transfer from the young model to the new product makes it more attractive for the audience to deal with it.

          In addition to the presentation of new products, but also new methods and technologies, many live events are also about the presentation of sports fashion. Unlike a high fashion show, or the classic prêt-à-porter fashion show, sports and fitness models are all about energy! Accordingly, the fashion show is not minimalistic, the models dance, show choreographer, or even sports exercises. Besides, not all models are the same, as you might know from fashion shows in Paris, or Milan, at sport and fitness models also characters are in demand.

          Nutrition and role models

          As you can see, image transfer is especially important with sports and fitness models, because they embody a healthy lifestyle, exercise a lot and eat a balanced diet. That’s why sports models not only stand for good looks, but also for lifestyle and quality. As a sports model, you are a role model for many.

          Fitness model over 50

          Demography in many parts of the world tends to make the population older and older. That’s why sports and fitness models over 50 years old are becoming more and more popular! Whether it’s about healthy living or vitality in old age, they represent a whole new population group. Even at the age of 50 you still have big plans, travel the world, maybe start another career… Many paths are still open to you today, even at an advanced age. That’s why models over 50 are becoming more and more present in advertising. Also the sports and fitness industry reacts to the trend and increasingly relies on models with 40 years, 50 years, but also 60 and 70 years. Great times, especially for best ager models.

          Tips: Healthy diet and weight loss

          Model agency pay money? No, you should make money!

          Do you have to pay money to a model agency? Many models ask themselves this question at the beginning! Even in the larger agencies, we hear stories again and again that someone had to pay money to be accepted into a model agency. Watch it! Watch it! You shouldn’t pay money to get into an agency. Good agencies will make money with you.

          Our reputable modeling agencies

          The first and most important indicator to recognize a good model agency is the website, of course also evaluations and recommendations.

          Model agency reviews

          Here you can already see before the visit whether an agency is serious and whether it has good recommendations and ratings. If you are still standing in front of a model agency or a model agent who offers you a model contract by paying money, you should immediately refrain from doing so. As soon as you have to make a bank transfer right at the beginning, do not sign the contract. Serious agencies want to work with you without you having to pay anything.

          Model agencies Germany

          Model agencies usually do not charge any money for the recording. Later there are a few cases in which, for example, something is charged. However, this is something completely different, e.g. if the agency steps in advance for a trip. However, this is always agreed in advance. Therefore you should always rely on which model agency has a good website, represents various models, has good ratings on the internet and of course you should also keep an eye on the social media channels, especially Instagram!

          Model agency boy: male model of the future

          CM – The model agency for boys and young men. With just one click in the main menu you can access the current men’s model selection at any time. As an agency and management we help our young talents to start their modeling careers. Modeling itself requires a lot of ambition. The job is demanding, it’s about more than just looking good. As a model, this is especially true for young men, you must also quickly become changeable. As an absolute Newface it is enough to have a cool look. The more demanding the photo shootings and the photographers become, the more experience you need to deliver the quality that the client expects at that moment.

          Becoming a model means a lot of exercise and training

          So that you can gain a lot of experience, you need training and practice, and you can only get it through jobs. With the big competition, however, you need to do your first test shootings before your first job. Because first of all it is always about building up your portfolio. Your visuals must be able to compete with the competition so that customers can select you for jobs. That’s why as a young man you first have to take care of good pictures. Don’t worry, your modeling agency will help you! With contacts and a network, you can get to good photographers who can quickly prepare you for the industry.

          First test shootings as a young male model

          No matter if you come from Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne or Munich, at the beginning you have test shootings. In these test shootings you can prove your skills and the agency gets feedback from the photographer. The first task and at the same time the most important one. Because first you have to fill your model book with meaningful pictorial material. It is not about 50 different photo galleries, but about 5 good, varied photo galleries. Sporty, couples, sexy in black and white, underwear and business. You already have a good portfolio! Diversity is so important because customers also get a picture of you when they look at photos. If someone now wants to shoot a lookbook for a high-quality men’s clothing brand, it is definitely an advantage if you already have suitable pictures in your portfolio. So you can imagine yourself much easier in the set!

          The first jobs for boys and young men

          Your first jobs will usually consist of photo shoots. At the beginning still relatively undemanding, e.g. 20 parts for an online shop. It gets more challenging when you are asked for different posings and of course emotions. For such campaign shootings you have to have done some photo shoots in order to have the necessary experience and know how to take up presence in a room, what effect a certain look or pose has on you. Due to your experience and feedback you will become more and more confident in your movements. This of course makes it more and more valuable for the customer, because when you are at shooting sets, every single movement sits! That’s where it has to go for you.

          As a young male model you often also work in showrooms. Small fashion shows without an audience in which you present collection pieces directly to the customer, with the designer or someone from the marketing department. In this way, the customer or buyer, whether from a boutique or from a large fashion chain, can directly gain an impression. He sees how the processing and the material have been put together. The buyers also have the opportunity to talk directly to you as a model and ask you, for example, how you feel about the fabric.

          Model agency open casting: dates, preparation and presentation

          What is an open model agency casting? When model agencies hold an open casting, they invite everyone to participate. The difference to the closed casting is that there is no previous selection, e.g. based on body size, or the measurements around chest, waist and hips. With an open casting everyone has the chance to become a model with us.

          How does open model casting work?

          Already a few weeks in advance you will be informed about the open casting, so that the model agency will find enough casting participants, it of course advertises. Some model agencies also have regular open castings. You can find them on the website of the model agency. For example, every Friday models from all over the city are invited to take part in the casting. The model casting then takes place relatively quickly, regardless of whether it is a regular casting or a single casting date, and so that the casting can take place efficiently and quickly, all models are scheduled for a specific date, e.g. 5 p.m.. Exactly at 17 o’clock all casting participants will appear at the address.

          How many models come to a casting?

          With closed castings there are usually only 20 to 30 models to be found here. With open castings there can be 100, 200, or even 300 models who want to have the job, or who want to join the agency. As a model the preparation plays an important role, especially in the face of the great competitive pressure. Whether it’s a photo shoot for a classic printed catalogue, the stylish online shop, or just the instagram page, preparation is always half the battle. With models the preparation for a casting looks naturally differently, than with a normal interview for a job.

          How do you prepare for an open casting?

          In an open casting you should always wear plain clothes when you go to a model agency, but also when you are with customers. That means, wear best a simple black jeans and in addition a black top. Nothing distracts from you as a model. In contrast to TV casting shows, a real casting is a real advertising campaign. Accordingly, customers do not want self-promoters in a leopard look, but professional models who know how to sell a product through emotions, facial expressions and gestures. After all, production deadlines are very time-consuming and expensive. Even small photo sets have a good photographer, usually a well equipped and professional photo studio, but also assistant, additional equipment, as well as clothes, or products of the customer. With complex photo productions, or also with film productions, the costs become accordingly larger. The customer must therefore always be able to rely 100% on the models booked, so that nothing can go wrong on the day of production. That’s a big challenge for models. That is why the big model agencies are so selective in their model selection.

          How do I gain advantages in an open casting?

          The most important thing is the smile. You can still have so much good picture material, in the end always a person decides on the reservation of the model. So emotions and sympathy play a role in every decision. Whether a single person, such as the Creative Art Director, or a complete jury, e.g. at a casting for a fashion show. A smile is the quickest way to convince! Especially after a long casting day, on which a jury member had to say “hello” to more than 100 models, give ratings, take measurements, look at photo galleries, everyone is happy about a likeable appearance. This is exactly how you can secure a few advantages with an open casting. Tip 2 is always be proud of yourself. It sounds very simple, but at the same time it is very important for you. Even as an absolutely new face and especially as a new model, proudly say that you are just at the beginning! At one or the other open casting you will be able to score well, because many designers are also looking for models who have not yet modeled for any other campaigns. At open castings there will always be models who have more experience than you. Have seen more countries, or have had more jobs. Always be proud of who you are, what you can do. This self-confidence is transmitted as a very positive feeling to the customer, or the jury. If you want to know more about casting, or the upcoming dates of our model agency, then just have a look in the main menu under Become a model and castings.

          The Model Book: Become a Model with Tips & Insights!

          The Model Book: Become a Model – Handwritten over many months, with detailed research, simple steps and many insider tips for models! Everything about “modeling” and “becoming a model”. Maybe the new standard work. In THE MODEL BOOK you will learn in different chapters, step by step, one after the other, the entire advertising industry and its special features. As a model, especially as a young model, you have to pay attention to many details at the beginning of your career. What do you mean, you don’t know? Who accepts the wrong jobs, does not find the right agency or builds up his buck in the wrong direction, can quickly build up a bigger career. Models also have only a few years to reach the important steps. The better prepared you are as New Face for this time, the easier it will be for you to gain a foothold in the industry and earn money as a model. In the Model Book you will therefore learn chapter by chapter and step by step how to prepare yourself for the start of your modeling career.

          The Model Book: Overview of models

          In the first chapter you will learn all about the indispensable mental strengths of a model. What requirements do you have to meet, quite apart from the often perfect measurements, in order to convince as a model at photo shootings and advertising video shootings?

          Self-confidence and organization: The A&O for models

          For you, the most important thing here is your own self-confidence, four personal initiatives and self-organisation. As a model, you will be sent on journeys at an early age. Sei is at the age of 15 years in the next big city, by plane from Frankfurt to Hamburg or just a few months and years later across Europe and the world. As a model, especially in the high fashion world and in skin couture, the international path is always open. If you take your chances early enough and I prepare perfectly for them myself, you can go far. Quite different from television, real top models are less about the story, drama and self-production. For models it’s about absolute willpower and belief in yourself (yourself!). As you will learn in the next chapters of the book, as a model you will have to face many exams! Absolute trust is an absolute priority for your modeling agent and your modeling agency.

          The perfect model agency for New Faces

          Mother agencies, model agencies, fashion agents, boutique agencies and bookers – What?!

          Before it goes to the big topic of model castings, the first showrooms and jobs, the book deals with the search for the perfect agency. Each model agency has its own portfolio and clientele. Often model agencies are very specialized in a certain area (advertising, high fashion, etc.). Also the size of agencies is different. There are some Modelbookers who hardly know anybody, but who have the best contacts and only work with 5-15 models. There are small agencies, large agencies with hundreds of employees and huge international model agencies such as IMG or ELITE.

          In general, you can distinguish model agencies like this: There are international agencies, national agencies and regional model agencies. The more international a model agency is, the stricter are the requirements for your measurements, but also the higher are the requirements to be accepted as a model by this model agency (experience, pictures, etc.). With national agencies, advertising (supermarkets, insurance companies, etc.) is very often the issue, here it is not too important to have a perfect figure, with perfect proportions and exact body size. The measures in national markets therefore differ from those of the international standard. For models who work in regional areas, the dimensions count even less. This is often about smaller jobs and smaller fairs (hostess). As an international high fashion model, you naturally want to join the big brands, but of course you have to prepare yourself perfectly!

          Serious model agencies: agency search and model application

          In order to find the best agency for you and your requirements, you will learn in the book what a perfect model agency application looks like and how to find the best model agency for you! Many questions are also answered here, for example, whether you need a lot of photo material for your application The simple answer is: No, you just need Polaroids. The Model Scouts in agencies have a very trained view and can recognize by their experience of many years, already by simple Polaroids whether you have potential for the agency or not. Polaroids are super simple photos with the smartphone, in daylight. That’s it. If you want to know how to make perfect Polaroids for your application, read more here: Become a model. For your application you don’t need a long cover letter or to describe how motivated you are! There’s just a little bit of key information. These are usually your name, your place of residence, your contact details and three to four photos. You also write down your measurements: your body size, hips, waist, bottom and shoe size.

          Your model folder: The best photos for castings & jobs

          Once you have found the perfect model agency for you, you can start with the first test shootings with photographers! Of course your model agency will help you a lot to get only the best photographers. Your agency will also see to it that you get a wide range of material for your model portfolio. Many make the mistake of focusing purely on “fashion photos”. Especially when there’s no agency in the background to advise you as a model. My tip: As a model you should always make sure that your model portfolio is as multi-faceted as possible. Not every customer can directly imagine what one can make of you as a guy. The photos help the customer to make his decision. The more extensive your photo portfolio is in the model folder, the more likely it is that customers will be able to make bookings.

          Someday your book will be so full, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Which photo do I put in the folder, which one not? With professional models, the folder is so strong at some point that they are booked more and more often directly. Direct bookings are very good because you don’t have to attend a casting and are not in a pre-selection. You don’t have to keep days off (“Option”), you will be booked directly by the customer for an appointment!

          Test shootings with photographers: build up model portfolio and win jobs

          So that you can build up your model portfolio perfectly, you’ll also learn in the book how to get your own test shoots (also called TFP shoots in Germany) from photographers. As a modeling agent, I have to deal with test shootings for our models on a daily basis, so here are a few valuable tips on how you should ideally write to photographers. What’s the matter with you? With the right cover letter, your chances of getting good test shoots will increase. There are some little tricks I’ll tell you in the book. In principle, it can be said that you should briefly deal with the photographer instead of “just” writing to him or her. You should also create a suitable moodboard. The more interesting the shooting is for the photographer of your choice, the more time-saving the shooting is, the higher is your chance for the test shooting! So take a good look at what the photographer has already done and what not.

          You shouldn’t do too much with the test shoot, though. If I post a new photographer on Facebook and Instagram every day, your market value may drop quickly. Why should a big customer still pay a lot of money if “every” photographer is allowed to photograph you for free? With a professional modeling agency behind you, you will of course get direct tips and the best contacts so that you are as exclusive as possible!

          If you take care of yourself and his portfolio, you should make sure that you want the photographer to expand your portfolio. If you already have five photo series with “Fashion”, maybe you should try something new! To help you do this, you’ll get all the tips you need to write the perfect letter to photographers.

          Jobs, Jobs, Jobs: Welcome to the Model World

          Daily business. We did it! You have prepared yourself well for being a model, written a good application, found a serious agency, built up and expanded your model portfolio, you get the first castings and voila: The first jobs! The tasks are then very extensive and varied. Unlike normal office life, you don’t have to deal with the same tasks every day. You won’t be working every day either. Sometimes you have free time, sometimes you will travel, sometimes you are already one day earlier on site for the fitting. In between, many young models study, so you’ll soon have a full-time job! Especially when you go abroad.

          First you will start your career with small jobs for online shootings, you will work on showrooms, maybe do some online shops and get your first commercials. When you’re ready, you’ll earn enough money to get to professional photographers and to bring your model portfolio to an even higher level with new photo series from top photographers! With new photos you will get better jobs again. At some point it will be time and if your model portfolio is full enough, your agency can also suggest you for abroad in its partner agencies. So even as a young model you can quickly get to the international metropolises, Milan, Paris and New York. Many models now also go to Asia, Shanghai and Hong Kong. But some also go to large production facilities such as Istanbul. But the Big Four remain the dream of all models: London, Paris, Milan and New York.

          After the job: healthy life and beauty

          A model’s job is really exhausting! So there is another chapter that deals only with how you eat healthily and how you live healthily. You will also get great beauty tips on how to take care of yourself, your skin and your hair even during strenuous jobs and many days of travel. You have many shootings, many appointments and often don’t find the time to cook something fresh for yourself. Then you have to go on to the next shooting and maybe you still have overtime. After eleven hours of shooting and “smiling”, you are absolutely knocked out back to the hotel. You’ll find the best tips on how to keep fit anyway in the book! The book not only shows you how to become a model and what you will experience as a model, you also get practical tips for the time after the jobs.

          After you can keep yourself fit in the hard everyday life of a model and eat a healthy diet, we go one step further: Networking! When you’re out and about at fashion shows or photo shoots, there are often people with a taste for fashion. Therefore it is good and important if you know a little about the absolute basics. Small talk is always important! Whether at the Fashion Week or in your model agency. Therefore, an entire chapter is devoted to the theme of fashion. Where does fashion come from, why does it actually exist? Is fashion just clothes or is fashion more? How do trends influence us? Who sets trends? It also deals with the two important parts of fashion: haute couture and pret-a-porter. Both fashion styles are very important for designers, as well as for models and the entire advertising industry and production behind fashion.

          Fashion changes at any time. That’s why the Fashion Week in the fashion metropolises doesn’t just take place once a year. In Paris, Milan and New York there are more often big fashion events! “Spring/Summer”, “Autumn/Winter”, “Prefall”, “Fashion Week Mens”, and so on. New collections of fashion designers are constantly being presented. Meanwhile, backstage before, during and after the shows, you’ll be coming back to fashion again and again. So you know what it’s like to be a model in haute couture and pret-a-porter.
          show the book in the chapter about trends and fashions!

          Modeling abroad: Perfect dimensions, hard work and diligence

          Now you have learned everything to make it in Germany as a model! For the best of the best it goes on now, abroad! Here you will get to know the big model world. At first quite small, with other models in a large model WG. Later, when you have convinced the first agencies of yourself and are booked again for the following season, also get to know new agencies and your schedule gets fuller and fuller, you have done it. Now you can get to know the world, travel and meet interesting people on jobs every day. This is the dream of all young models. Everybody wants to go to the big media circus when they say “I want to be a top model!”

          The way there is long and as described in chapter 1, success is mainly connected with the mental power of a model. You have to be true to yourself, you have to believe in yourself! Not just for a few weeks, but for years. Even the biggest top models in the world and supermodels of Victoria’s Secret shows have taken a few years to really succeed and become famous. They started very early, were partly discovered very early by scouts and worked their way up for years, first beside school, then full time, to the “superstars” they are today for many.

          The Model Book for everyone: The Model Book

          Not every model will follow the path of high fashion and international advertising. The book also gives models on national markets a very informative insight, so that you as a “commercial” model can also take a lot of important things with you. You will learn a lot about the agency search, how to set up and expand your modelbook, how to find the perfect photographers, what jobs to expect and what opportunities you have to make a career as a model! I wrote the book for several months and met interesting people for it, as well as fashion photographer Oliver Rudolph. Part of the work was also created in collaboration with Michelle Hamacher. I thank you very much and look forward to further cooperation! With this book we give young, new models a realistic insight into the fashion industry and wish each one of you much success and the very best for your individual way!

          Why do you need a model agency for modeling?

          An agency is very important for a model, because it supports and protects you as a model. She helps you find photographers and jobs. No matter if you are booked as a model for shootings or catwalks, the agency will show you in the best light. The bookers know how to present yourself optimally with your book. As “New Face” you will be supported by your agency in setting up your book and your setcard. One very important point: an agency protects you from dubious customers and dubious job enquiries. Usually dubious customers already shy away when they learn that a model is represented by an agency. This is particularly important for an international modeling career, because models abroad are often underpaid and exploited. A reputable model agency ensures that you do not work unpaid overtime, that you do not take dubious pictures of yourself, that you are adequately paid and accommodated. In addition, the agency will determine in advance whether the job is of high quality and whether you can be associated with the customer as a model without your image suffering as a result. At best, every job should prove your model qualities and positively underline your image.

          Photomodel Lookbook (Cocaine Models Management)

          How do you find the best model agency as a newcomer?

          There are now plenty of model agencies. But how do I even find a suitable model agency? And when is a modeling agency serious? Your search starts on the Internet. It’s convenient if your agency is within your radius. That’s why you should simply enter “Model agency + your city” in Google and browse the results. Since it is generally important for a model to be represented in the larger “Mode & Medien-Städten” in Germany, you should search for “Modelagenturen + Hamburg/ Berlin/ München/ Köln/ Düsseldorf/ Frankfurt”. You’ll get some results. The next hurdle: Now how do you know which of the agencies are even serious? One possibility is that there are already ready-made model agency lists on the Internet that are constantly updated, for example the Vogue list. With this you can assume that only well-known and serious agencies are listed. However, as a dedicated model you should take a closer look at your selected agencies yourself before applying.

          Criteria for serious model agencies in Germany

          In order to find out for yourself which agency is serious, you should go through different steps.

          • Step 1: The Agency’s website. Very important: A serious model agency has a serious website. A simple, clear design, a high quality board and information about the agency team.
          • Step 2: The level of the models. Take a look at the model board and determine the level of the models yourself. The following criteria will help you here: Do the models have optimal model dimensions and an impressive face? Are the pictures of the models high quality?
          • Step 3: Does the agency work with serious clients? You can easily research this on the agency’s website or on the agency’s social media platforms. In general, you can easily measure the seriousness of your customers according to their degree of recognition. Also the “likes” on Facebook or “Follwer” on Instagram show how well known and popular a model agency is.
          • Step 4: Search the Internet for reports from other models or clients of the agency. Note that not every comment is true. In order to get a better picture of the agency you should read enough testimonials and reviews of the agency. To say it in addition is: See these evaluations rather than references, make you nevertheless own picture.

          Find your perfect model agency – Summary:

          Recognize reputable model agencies:

          • serious customers (for example, well-known brands through advertising)
          • serious models (appearance, dimensions)
          • fixed admission criteria
          • serious website
          • Transparency regarding the agency team (for example through website)

          Agency is not serious if:

          • No/untransparent website (no naming of agency headquarters or agency teams)
          • simple agency admission without preconditions and interview
          • no cooperation with serious customers
          • Admission fees will be charged

          The model application

          You have now found a suitable, reputable model agency and would like to apply as a model. What’s the best way to apply? Nowadays, applications are usually sent by e-mail, which means that you can find an e-mail address and a contact person to whom you can send your application via the agency’s website.

          What must be in your application?

          Most agencies publish their admission criteria on their websites. In general, you should state your measurements in your mail, i.e. chest, waist and hip circumference. You should attach great importance to the accuracy and timeliness of your measurement data, because an agency does not like it at all if you make false statements. You’ve never taken measurements yourself? No problem. No problem.

          Take and measure measurements yourself

          You simply measure your measurements with a normal tape measure. If you’re unsure, get someone you can trust to help you. To determine the exact circumference of your chest, the tape measure must be placed at the widest point of the chest and pulled to tension. Important for women: If you wear a bra when measuring, pull off approx. 1 cm, for push-up bras at least 2 cm. To determine the circumference of your waist, place the tape measure at the narrowest point and pull it tight. You measure the hip circumference at the widest point of your hip or bottom. The optimal model measurements for a woman (as a guideline) are 90-60-90.

          In addition to your measurements, you should include pictures in your application. You should make a selection that shows you in different facets, i.e. commercial, fashion and beauty pictures from your book as well as simple Polaroids. You don’t have a book yet and no Polaroids? No problem. No problem.

          Picture selection for your model folder

          Some agencies prefer models who already have a certain selection of pictures. So you should start looking for different, good photographers. The easiest way to do this is via the Internet. Do the same as your agency search, i.e. search for professional photographers in your area, check their websites, look at their pictures and search for ratings of the photographers by other models. Important: Make a conscious choice. It is of little use to you if you thoughtlessly select numerous photographers who take similar pictures of you (for example, only fashion pictures). Rather, you should choose a few photographers who take different pictures of you in different “directions”, i.e. fashion, commercial and beauty pictures. Here applies: Invest rather a little more money, so that the pictures become qualitatively high-quality and convince. Only those who invest will benefit.

          Polaroids for Models – Fast, clean photos

          At some agencies even simple Polaroid pictures are sufficient for the application. You can do this yourself or get support from a friend or family member. Polaroids are clean pictures that show your body and face in different facets and give the agency a first impression of you. Polaroids show you in front of a white wall, a good exposure, without make-up, in plain, tight-fitting clothes (skinny jeans or leggings & simple top or T-shirt) and with women preferably in high shoes. One picture should be taken of you in underwear, on one picture you should laugh, on the other one you should look rather expressionless into the camera. Important: No big posing! The pictures should be simple and natural.

          checklist for models

          • Optimal & exact dimensions
          • Optically neat look
          • Naturalness
          • The special something (For example, strikingly beautiful eyes/lips, small features such as a tooth gap or a mothers meal, long & undyed hair, a special radiance)
          • self-conscious, present & friendly appearance

          If you meet all the criteria of the model agency and the bookers find you interesting, you will be invited to a personal interview at the agency.

          Find a Model Agency

          Find the perfect model agency? That can be difficult! Ideally you should rely on ratings, recommendations and experiences from other models. Through their opinions and statements you can already learn a lot about a model agency. But before you decide on a specific model agency, the first step is the search! So let’s look for the perfect model agency!

          Reputation and Website: Search and Find with Google

          Pretty much everyone will start their search either on Google or on Instagram. Probably Google! Search engines are already an extremely good indicator, because they show you who is making an effort for his media appearance. Search engines like Google try hard to show you as a user only the content that might be really interesting for you. Apart from the advertisements you will usually only find the recommended model agencies at Google & Co.

          Start your search regionally

          Before you look for a model agency in Milan or New York, look for a good agency in Germany that can represent you for all important cities. In which city your model agency is located is not significant. Large agencies work for the entire German market. You should focus on getting into one of the best German agencies! Start your search with the keyword model agency and the name of the closest largest city with at least one million inhabitants. Exceptions may be Frankfurt and Düsseldorf, otherwise you should always orient yourself to the nearest, larger city. Then search for

          • Model Agency Berlin
          • Model agency Hamburg
          • Model agency Cologne
          • Model agency Munich

          References and news on the website

          On the website of every model agency you should find references, but also news. Here the agencies write about new jobs, commercials and photo shoots. If you don’t find any updates about new jobs on the agency page, this is not advantageous. Always check to see if you can find references and customers. Here you can get an idea of the customers the agency works for and thus you can find your perfect target group. In the last step, check the model board. How many models does the agency represent? Is it 500 or only 50 selected models? Every job planning and every travel planning costs time and money. The more models an agency represents, the less time it can invest in a single model. So take a look at how meaningful the portfolios are and compare different model agencies with each other. That way you can make the best impression on yourself! Let’s summarize again which points you should check on the websites of model agencies:

          • News, Blog and Job Postings
          • Customers and References
          • Number of models
          • Compare different modelboards

          Rating on Google, Facebook and other portals

          In the next step you can look at reviews on the different portals. Two important clues: Watch how many ratings model agencies have. Is it just two or are there 20 reviews? The more ratings, the better you can get a meaningful picture. What you should also pay attention to is the average number of stars. Is the number above 3.5 or below? If the agency has over 3.5, you can usually expect it to do a good job. When the agency creates 4 stars, you can assume that it does very good work. Individual negative comments should be checked, because model agencies often receive negative ratings from models that have not been accepted. With 50 applications that a model agency receives every day, not every model gets a feedback and therefore there are sometimes negative reviews without a real reason. Don’t let single negative reviews dissuade you from a model agency if the majority of the reviews are good. You usually get the most objective reviews from Google and Facebook. Many millions of German users are registered here and therefore the potential to have a meaningful amount of ratings is greatest. Besides the evaluation portals you should always take a look at the social networks!

          Of course, model agencies are not only represented on Instagram and YouTube. Nevertheless, it is usually the most important networks for model agencies to find young models. Here you can look exactly the same as in the Blog of the agency whether the agency represents good customers, offers various jobs and strives for regular Postings.

          You will find most model agencies on Instagram, because Instagram is made for model agencies! Photo, photo and sometimes a video! In any case, take a look at the social media channels of model agencies, because here you can also judge whether a model agency makes an effort or whether it does something without passion.

          These were our tips to help you find your perfect modeling agency. We wish you every success!

          • Model Application

          Write to a model agency – Your perfect application looks like this

          How do I correctly write a model agency? The model agency is very short, although many think that you need previous experience or professional photo shoots. In reality, you don’t need much, two photos and a few dates. Let’s have a look at what the perfect model agency looks like.

          Fact: Model agencies have little time

          The most important rule is keep your letter very short. Because in a renowned and good model agency, sometimes 50 to 100 applications arrive daily. If there is only one scout in the agency, he has only a few seconds for each application, besides the actual agency work. That’s why you have to score by your photo, not by a long cover letter.

          Write to model agency: Contact Details and Dimensions

          Your e-mail or letter should contain the following information:

          • Name and first name
          • age
          • Residence
          • E-Mail address
          • Phone number
          • body size
          • fabrication

          This basic information should be written to your model agency.

          References and Social Media Accounts

          Additionally you can add some more information. e.g.

          • Instagram Channel URL
          • YouTube Channel URL if you have more than 5,000 followers
          • Experiences, if you already had jobs or references and customers
          • Reference Links to YouTube or Vimeo for commercials

          More information should definitely not be written to your model agency. Now we come to the actually important step, your photo! That’s right, the singular, photo. You don’t need an expensive photo shoot, no professional photographer, just you and a friend or a girlfriend, gladly also your mum or dad, who takes a good photo of you in the daylight. That’s it.

          Application Photo for your cover letter

          As described above, if you are looking for new faces, the model scouts have little time. 50 to 100 applications reach a good model agency on average per day. This means that the model scout only has a few seconds for each application and each individual review of the application documents. In addition to scouting new faces, his work also includes making new contracts, planning the first shootings and presenting the model to the team. So what matters is your photo! In principle, your application should not contain more than a maximum of four photos, but basically one photo or two is sufficient.

          • Portraitfoto
          • full body photo

          In combination with your height, clothing and age, the scout has all the important information for himself. The decision then only takes a few seconds. How can you make your photos too perfect?

          Perfect Environment for Application photos

          For your application photos you should definitely pay attention to daylight, here you have the best lighting conditions and also absolutely natural radiation. Light emitted by lamps does not have the natural warmth and of course the light source is directly in the room, which can also be seen in the shadows. Therefore you should always make sure in the first step that you take your photo in daylight. You should absolutely do without make-up, any styling that distracts from you and your skin, your hair, your facial features, your proportions is too much! That’s why you should completely do without make-up and styling. Clothes should not distract from you either, so you should wear black trousers and a black top as a woman or a black shirt as a man. With the shoes you should keep it the same, plain and unobtrusive. Let’s sum it up again:

          • photos in daylight
          • Good smartphone camera is enough
          • No make-up
          • No styling
          • Black trousers, black top, plain shoes

          These are the most important facts for your application photos. So you have the two perfect pictures, portrait and full body. Make sure that you don’t laugh at either photo, be absolutely unemotional and just look into the camera. Like I said, nothing should distract from your person, even gestures or facial expressions. If you have both your photos, you are welcome to take a photo with a smile and a photo of the page so that you can also see yourself in the profile. That would give you four photos and the perfect basis for your model agency to write!

          Become a Model Frankfurt: Agency, Jobs and Travel – Questions and Answers

          Frankfurter Models – Today we wanted to give all young young models in Frankfurt am Main a little insight into the work of a model agency in Frankfurt. Did you know that most jobs don’t take place in Frankfurt? But let’s start with the basic questions that arise about models. Becoming a model is quite demanding, because you already start at school. So you have to concentrate not only on good grades, but also on keeping your requirements and improving yourself.

          Become a model in Frankfurt Main: How it works

          Basically these question always arises first:

          How old do I have to be to start modeling?

          If you want to be represented and managed as a model in an international model agency like ours, you should be at least 15 years old. As a model agency, we recommend that you concentrate fully on school before you start.

          Of course there are not only teenagers and teen models in the model industry, but also models with 20, 30 or even 60 years, so-called Best Agers. We also have tips for you!

          Full concentration on school

          Good grades and a good basic education will help you a lot later in your job. After all, the better you get, the more flights you have to make, the more punctual you have to get to hotels in new cities where you have to find your way around again and again. Sometimes you have to show some spontaneity for small advertising jobs or moderations. After the shootings or in the breaks, there are small small talks. If you then have a Magazine Shooting and can’t communicate off-set with the others who have usually seen a lot of the world, you shine less than with good general knowledge. But the more you get close to the end of your school days, the more often you will get booking requests from your model agency or cities outside Frankfurt. In addition, there are often travel days, so you are on the road for two or three days. The better your grades are, the more likely your school is to give you this freedom.

          Legal requirements and labour law

          The second important point in the minimum age of 15 years are the labour laws and regulations that exist in Germany. With 15 years you may already work substantially more freely, under 15 years you need special permissions, e.g. from the youth welfare department in addition, from a specialist. In an international model agency like ours you work a lot with fashion and products for a target group that is also over 16 years. Therefore international model agencies focus on models with 15, 16 years.

          International jobs and customers

          The third important point, if you want to work internationally, you need time to travel. Such a stay abroad usually lasts at least 45 days, but mostly even 60 days. The only time students really have time for such a long stay, including the trip, is during the summer holidays. In the summer holidays are generally rest periods, not only in Germany but also abroad. The families go on holiday and there is less production. Of course, there are fewer jobs for models. Some agencies, in Paris or also in Milan even close the agency completely for one or two weeks during this time. The high season for such a stay is then again September to December and afterwards from February to July.

          In which cities are there the most jobs for models?

          If you want to start your career from Frankfurt, your first focus will be on Germany and the larger cities in your area. This mainly includes Cologne but also Düsseldorf. The simple basic rule says that the more people live in a city, the more jobs, more advertising agencies, more manufacturing companies, but also more service providers and more advertising opportunities in the city center. The two factor plays the situation of the city, so there is e.g. a clear Top 10 in Germany. You can get most jobs as a model in Berlin and Hamburg. Especially in Berlin many international productions take place, in Hamburg there are many media agencies and therefore also many offers for models. Then come Munich, Cologne and just after that Frankfurt am Main, Hanover and Düsseldorf.

          Alternative for Frankfurt Models: Cologne, Berlin and Frankfurt

          In Frankfurt am Main, the view in the direction of Cologne and Düsseldorf is definitely the most worthwhile. But you can also do some interesting and exciting jobs in Frankfurt.

          What jobs are there in Frankfurt? Of course you can do a wide range of jobs in Frankfurt. For example, you can work in the Frankfurt city centre for fashion designers and present fashion to customers from all over the world. Showrooms are closed events, usually only the fashion designers, someone from marketing and two representatives of the customer are present. You present the fashion on your body. Such a thing is called Fitting Model. Also in Frankfurt you will do many jobs in showrooms at the beginning of your modeling career. Besides, you will do your first photo shootings as a model in Frankfurt. Probably most of all for Instagram and with growing experience also for the first Frankfurt online shops. No matter if it’s about fashion, products from the technology industry or sports. The better you get and the more varied, the higher the chances are that customers will book you for jobs in Frankfurt.

          With increasing experience, productions also increase in size. If you are first-class, you will also make it into the first commercials, as well as here for Opel, produced with three of our models near Frankfurt! With a production team of over 50 people, a helicopter, over ten cars that can be seen alone in the spot and a whole production team behind it.

          How do I apply in a model agency in Frankfurt?

          For your application in Frankfurt you don’t need much, the experienced eyes of the model agency see the requirements for models at a glance. All we need from you as a model agency are three to four photos. Important, you don’t have to book a professional photographer to improve your model portfolio. At the beginning, at the application, simple mobile phone photos are enough for us as an agency.

          It is important that you can be seen in daylight. You should wear neither makeup nor styling, so that nothing distracts from you as a person. Because naturalness is also the most important thing for customers later on. When you later negotiate with customers or send the models abroad, many decisions are made on the basis of Polaroids. Polaroids are just such simple shots. Without styling, makeup, special outfit, nothing distracts from you. The background is a simple concrete wall, you are standing in front of the camera, looking into the lens, without posing and emotions. Naturalness is the A&O.

          Read more about this topic here: Model Polaroids.

          Do’s and Dont’s for Frankfurt Models

          If you really want to become a model, you should avoid any unnatural influences beforehand. This includes simple gel nails but also going to the solarium, hair extensions, lips injections, do without everything! Because you are as beautiful as you are!

          Application in a model agency

          In the following you simply send your picture material to Modelagentur, some data as well as your contact, your name, place of residence but also the most important measurements as well as your body and clothing size. If a model agency is interested in you, they will get back to you as soon as possible, most likely within five days. So the process won’t take that long, if you don’t get any feedback from the model agencies, the look won’t suit you. Don’t ask any questions, because every model agency has only limited capacities and wants to take care of the models completely. If you are in an agency tomorrow, you would want full attention. If you don’t fit, you should accept this and try your luck in another agency.

          How tall do I have to be as a model in Frankfurt?

          The body size plays a decisive role, even if there is no completely uniform scale of measurements, the fashion world in particular focuses on a minimum body size of 175cm for women. You shouldn’t be bigger than 181cm either. This is the perfect size for pre-cut garments but also for fashion shows in Frankfurt. Meanwhile you should be at least 186 cm tall and maximum 190 cm in your application as men’s model. So you fit perfectly to the female cast, even if they wear high heels. It is important that you are not too much trained as a man, you should have a defined body, not be a muscle package.

          These are the prerequisites for models who want to enter the fashion industry. Of course measurements can also deviate, models with 170 cm can also have success, but statistically it will be less. But if you still make an effort, show full commitment, who knows! You can also be more trained as a man, e.g. if you want to become a sportsman or Fitness Model. In an international agency like ours, however, you should normally meet the requirements.

          Tip! Here you can find good Gyms in Frankfurt

          The clothing size for women should be between 32 and 36. For Curvy Models, the sizes usually start at 42. For men, the ideal size at the beginning of a career is 48 to 52. If you want to become even more of a minimum size, check out the requirements for models here.

          • Women
            Body size for Fashion: 176 – 180cm / International
            Body size for advertising: 172 – 181cm / Germany
            Slim figure, usually long hair
          • Men
            Body size for Fashion: 186 – 190cm / International
            Body size for advertising: 184 – 194cm / Germany
            Slim or slightly sporty figure

          What happens after my agency recording in Frankfurt am Main?

          The following steps are very different from your age or the time you are going to spend with the school. For example, if you still have two years of school ahead of you, the first two years will focus on building your Modelbook and getting it ready for the national and international market. Your agency will arrange appointments with good photographers to help you with your portfolio. It is important for you always to pay attention to the quality, it is better to have few good photos than a mass of halfway good pictures. Because at the latest when you are in competition as a model, e.g. for jobs in other cities like Hamburg or Berlin, you need a strong portfolio where the customer can see with a few moments how good you are.

          After the first year, the first jobs start slowly, it takes a while, because you first have to build up a model book and you have to have good performance in school, so that you get free, most productions, almost all of them, are during the week. If there’s one more day of travel and one day for the return journey, plus the booking is for 2 days, you’re quickly out for a week. Therefore you will work even less during school time and do smaller jobs as well as the previously mentioned showrooms in Frankfurt city centre or for Frankfurt online shops or social media channels like Instagram photo shootings.

          If you’re already at the end of your school days at the agency, it’s sometimes a matter of placement abroad. As a model it should go on and on for you, from Frankfurt to Berlin, from Berlin to London Fashion Week and from London to Milan, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo. That’s exactly the plan of an international model agency and the reason why you’re playing in the professional league here. This requires special commitment, self-interest and of course a constant will to improve yourself. The job of a model is very demanding!

          Prerequisites for Models in Hamburg

          The competition is great! Many who live in the countryside try their luck in Hamburg. Maybe you live in the countryside, in a village or in a small town, maybe you live in the middle of Hamburg, in Altona or in HafenCity. However, the same requirements apply to all of them, e.g. when it comes to body size, clothing but also the measurements around chest, hips and waist. The measurements are however only a part of the conditions, likewise one counts healthy nutrition, body care in addition, paying attention to figure, hair, nails,… many details that most people don’t think about when they talk about how easy or difficult it is to become a model. After all basic requirements are fulfilled, it is especially about the own character and personality of the model. The cooperation with the management is very important, in the beginning it is less intensive but the longer you work as a model the more intensive the cooperation becomes.

          • General good appearance and neat appearance
          • Healthy diet and regular exercise
          • Professional collaboration with management and customers
          • Embition and commitment to the job as a model

          Models & School? First castings and jobs

          If, for example, you are still in school at the beginning and have two or three years ahead of you, you will do fewer jobs at the beginning. This is quite normal as you should concentrate on school and your education! But as soon as it approaches the end of school, you will ideally start the first international planning. If you can’t do it internationally, you can still look forward to many more jobs! As a student you are often tied up, between the different exams, the holidays, enjoy your free time! As soon as you have the time, you can also travel, you can plan travel days, you are flexible and you have a good school-leaving certificate in your pocket.

          For example, as a model it is important that you can express yourself well, many customers speak English, so it is very important that you have a good command of English! But there is also a bit of math, e.g. when it comes to calculating your own travel costs. The more successful you are as a model, the more you will invest in a photographer. Especially in Hamburg there are many good photographers. Of course they don’t have to work with everyone anymore. That’s why good photographers in Hamburg also cost money. But as soon as you earn money in your first jobs, you will also invest in the first photographers to improve your model portfolio!

          Live Casting – A look behind the scenes

          You haven’t seen a model casting live yet? Here is a small example from our Youtube Channel!

          Application in a model agency as a Hamburger

          If you want to apply in a Modelagency in Hamburg, you don’t need a professional photo shooting. All your model agency wants to see in Hamburg are Polaroids. Polaroids are super easy to create, all you need is a good friend, a mobile phone and daylight! In addition you have to get the right outfit in the city center, black trousers, a black top, black or white, plain shoes. Your underwear should also be black. As a woman you should also buy a bikini and high heels. If you are still new in Hamburg, here are a few recommendations for you: Fashion Boutiques Hamburg. For your model agency you will get good daylight and a relatively simple wall. The background of your photo should be as bad as possible so that nothing distracts you! You don’t need make-up or styling. All your model agency wants to see is you!

          Take measurements yourself: Measure hips, waist and chest

          Here you see all important points on the body to take your measurements yourself. Make sure you wear as little clothing as possible when measuring and be honest with yourself when measuring! You can find more information about minimum measurements and proportions for models here: Model measurements.

          We hope that you have learned a little and have summarized here once again the most important articles for you on the subject becoming a model!

          Model Coachings – Catwalk training, acting & more

          Send photos: Professional shooting or simply with your mobile phone?

          In the next step you take a full body photo, a portrait and another portrait with a laugh. First in a normal outfit, black jeans, black top and shoes. If you are over 16 years old, you can also send Polaroid bikinis or Polaroids in underwear. If you are under 16, don’t do that! It is important that you are seen with your whole body, once your face in portrait and another photo with a smile. Why is laughing so important? As a model you work for many jobs in advertising. Advertising sells through friendliness, emotions that you as a model can arouse in you, better than any other! That’s why there should also be a laughing portrait of you.

          After the shot: Patience is a virtue – also in Hamburg!

          Before you send your application to a model agency, you should definitely talk to your parents and of course you should also think about the head gasket you are going to use as a model.

          Gosee! The job interview in the modeling agency

          You did it and you were invited to an interview in the modeling agency? Excellent! Now it’s about making a first good impression! How you can optimally prepare for your first meeting, you will find out here.

          How do you prepare for the job interview?

          The first thing you should do is to find out more about the agency on the internet and to remember the most important points about the agency, such as locations, agency team and customer and model portfolio. Furthermore, you should put together a varied selection of your pictures and bring your book or a USB stick with your pictures to the performance date.

          You want to become a model! The appearance in the agency

          The first impression counts and a trained Booker eye misses nothing. Do yourself the favor and go to sleep on time the day before your performance date, because enough sleep will help you to present yourself in top form. You should also be neat and natural, just put on a light make-up and present yourself in a simple, body-contoured outfit, similar to the Polaroids. Another criterion for a successful appearance: Be in a good mood! A good look is half the battle, because the booker sees you with the same eyes as a potential customer. If you have bad manners and look rude or uninspired, this falls back to the agency. A booker will only include you in the agency portfolio if he can send you to a client with a clear conscience.

          Flexibility is paramount for models at the beginning

          For a modeling agency your motivation is a crucial criterion. Become aware of the following in advance: Do you want full-time modeling or is modeling for you more of a hobby or extra income? Big agencies will only work with you if you are flexible in terms of time and modeling is your priority. There is nothing more disagreeable for an agency than a model that does not have time to go to auditions or accept jobs. In addition, you should think about what your exact motivation is to model. Think about: Why do you want to model? What is important to you? Convince the modeler’s bookers of your motivation, your experience, your time flexibility and generally your benefits.

          Process of the interview in the modeling agency

          The procedure of the job interview in a modeling agency varies depending on the agency. Basically, you introduce yourself at the beginning, presenting your experiences, your motivation and your preferences. The booker looks at your footage with you and often gives you a direct, short feedback. Depending on the booker’s interest in you as a model, your measurements will be measured, short Polaroid images or video presentations made. You may need to introduce yourself in English briefly so that the booker can see directly if he can suggest you to international clients. Last but not least, a booker can ask you to put your skills to the test, i. He wants to see a short posing or a short catwalk run of you.

          Admission in the modeling agency – The call

          After your personal performance date, it’s time to wait and see, because the agency will accept you in the rarest cases immediately. As a rule, the Booker team says goodbye to you with the words “Thank you for your visit. If interested, we will contact you. “And that can sometimes take a while. If you have not received any feedback after two weeks, it is recommended to send a short e-mail to the booker, in which you kindly ask if the agency has already made a decision regarding your inclusion in the model card index. This shows your strong will. Basically, you should then receive a commitment or commitment. If this is not the case, you have no choice but to wait and hope for the best. In no case should you write further e-mails or make calls, because you do not want to annoy the agency and if there is interest, the agency will contact you.
