Model agency under 18 at CM: Top 10 agency in Germany

Finding the right model agency under the age of 18 is not that easy. After all, by choosing a model agency you lay the foundation for your own career. Therefore, it is important to have a renovated agency behind you, so that from the setcard to the photographer to the first jobs and the later international build everything works. Good management means planning and organization, which is especially important for young models, especially when they start with the model, at the age of 14, 15 or 16. For all models under the age of 18, good planning is not only important for a successful career, but also the school should not suffer from modeling. Because of course it is important to have a good school-leaving certificate in your pocket.

What are the first steps you need to take?

The most important basic rule that every model has to follow, no matter if it is already big in its career or only at the beginning, is its own ambition! In addition to ambition, patience is also important, because overnight nobody becomes a star. Whether it’s actors in Hollywood or high fashion models. Therefore you as a model should always have enough patience for yourself and your own way. If you stick to it consistently, you can make it. But what does it matter?

I want to be a model!

The first step is always to convince yourself that you want to be a model. But congratulations, you have already made this step, then you are looking for information. You’ve already overcome the most important hurdle, I want to be a model!

Continue with the model agency search. Finding the right model agency can sometimes take some time. Can you travel far yet? Do you have a big city near you with a renowned modeling agency? Do you already have experience or are you a complete Newface?

Depending on your possibilities, you should always look for a model agency in a big city after our experience. Only in the big city the networks are so strong that you as a model have the chance to work regularly and often. But why is that? Most fashion companies, industrial companies but also companies such as the automotive industry, travel companies and also the real estate industry are usually at home in the larger cities. This means in cities with a population of more than one million. In cities below this size, there are usually too few medium-sized and large companies for you as a model to really make a living from this job. But so that you can concentrate fully on modeling, it would be a good idea to work as often as possible. The mere number of jobs is not decisive, quality is important. For example, shootings for Instagram are extremely different from fees for commercials. The more prestigious your modeling agency is, the more influence it has that you are bigger names, the more jobs it gets on land.

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 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 Fashion Show – Catwalk & Catwalk Tips for Models

You are not a professional on the catwalk yet? Then take a look at our tips for the catwalk! Of excessive importance is an upright posture. You should be able to balance a book on your head. Pull your shoulders back and push your pelvis a little forward. Make sure you do not lean back too much. When you take the first step on the catwalk, you should always be the first to use your ball of the foot. Almost like you want to sneak. This looks a lot more elegant than when you first appear with the hoes.

Run with momentum and character: Find your balance

The important thing is that you put one foot in front of the other. You really should literally take this to heart. Your gait should form a zigzag. Thus, you also get the necessary momentum, which makes your walk only appear characteristic. Your steps should be great, but you should not do a splits. Also always remember to swing your hip. Always move your arms and hands evenly. It should not look like you have two stiff arms.

Your focus should be on the catwalk to a point in front of you

Your look should adapt to the style of your clothes. Try to smile with your eyes and keep your chin always lifted. Keep your head straight and steady. At the end of the catwalk is usually always the rotation. Put your left foot in front and pause for a few very short beats of the music. You should turn your shoulders and feet sideways while your head is still pointing forward and you are looking over your shoulders. After the break, turn your foot in the opposite direction and start to run with the front right foot. Only at the end do you turn your face away from the spectators.

But the most important thing is that you try to get your character involved in your walk. And you should always find yourself very attractive. Because only when you are convinced of yourself, you can convince the audience of you.

  • If you still can not walk well on high shoes, then you will learn it quickly with a little practice. My ultimate tip to keep you from slipping on the catwalk is to lick the soles of your higheels with some lemonade or coke. Your soles start to stick after a short time and you will surely strut over the catwalk.
  • Watch catwalk videos of really good models or visit the fashion shows yourself.
  • Let your friends film while running and posing. You can then watch the videos, and you’ll see for yourself what else you need to fix on yourself.
  • It does not matter if you stumble but you should get up dignified and keep going. Even in such stressful and embarrassing situations, you should stay professional and self-confident.
    Try to smile with your eyes (Smize: Smile with your eyes).

Minimum dimensions for men and women

The requirements for models differ for male models and female models in their body size, why is that so? As you can read in our article about Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture, fashion collections in particular are cut to size by designers. This allows uniform fashion shows to be held later, but also showrooms and photo shootings. Due to the identical dimensions it is easier for designers but also for event agencies and advertising agencies to plan concepts and shows.

Women are usually 10 cm smaller than men. If you want to take off as a female model in Berlin, you should have a minimum size of 174 cm, even better 175 cm. The ideal case for female models in Berlin is 178 to 180 cm. This gives you the perfect size to work as a model. A minimum size of 185 cm applies to men models in model agencies. Ideally, you shouldn’t be over 6’8″. At High Fashion Models the figure should be slim, so you have the best chances to work for international high fashion brands. You’re more flexible as a Curvy model. But the body size should be similar. Here once again the most important summarized

  • Minimum size for men Models is 185 – 190 cm
  • Minimum size for women is 174/175 – 180 cm
  • High fashion models should have a slim figure and a hip below 92 cm
  • Plus Size and Curvy Models should have a clothing size of 42

Casting Outfit: Simple, so that nothing distracts from you as a model

As mentioned above – we just point out – you should have no styling / make-up at the casting, as well as at the photos for your application, plain clothing is the be-all and end-all! You should also do without makeup, your hair should be open. If you want to work for us in Berlin, it’s all about naturalness! No tanning salon, no gel nails, no hair extensions and above all no dyed hair! That’s why come to the casting absolutely naturally.

Curvy models! The trend towards individuality

The modeling business. A constantly changing and very fast moving market. How multi-faceted and individual he is in the process of developing is not clear to most people. The ideal of beauty changes permanently and becomes more and more individual at the moment and accepts a mixture of already past ideals of beauty. The curves from the 1950s, in which Marilyn Monroe was the ideal image, mix with the still predominant Size 0 models and now introduce a new variable that is characterized by social media and the modern zeitgeist. Individuality is in demand. Tattoos, influencers, colorful hair or curves! The new Trend Plus Size in particular is establishing itself in the industry and growing permanently. Plus Size should not be confused with oversizes. Curvy models also play sports and pay attention to their diet. So it’s not fast food and lazing around, but ‘you are what you eat’ and so they live just as healthy and balanced to keep their weight on a level, because their curves must not and don’t want to lose them.

Photographer Oliver Rudolph explains in an interview about ‘Curvy Models’: It’s nice that the market is expanding and women with curves are also in demand. Why limit it to an ideal of beauty? ”. If we are honest, very few of us wear Size Zero and can therefore identify much better with the beautiful yet realistic Curvy models than with the beauty ideal of the Vogue models. By using Curvy Models, companies achieve a much larger reach and can address a much larger target group, which increases their market value enormously. Also model agent Stephan M. Czaja explains: Curvy Models are great for advertising. Everything that’s different and new sells great and attracts people’s attention.

Even the fashion magazine Vogue, which has been known for size 0 and skinny models until now, has printed the Curvy supermodel Ashley Graham on the cover of the American issue in March and thus for the first time in history a plus size model has appeared in their issues. So you can see that even established large companies are accepting the trend and establishing it in the industry.

Curvy models are and will remain trend:

Plus size models are just as popular as fancy guys with tattoos. The beauty ideal changes into an individuality and now stands completely under the motto: Everyone is beautiful! ”. Whether wasp waist and giant bottom, as with Kim Kardashian, a completely tattooed body, as with Zombie Boy or curves, as with Ashley Greyham, Angelina Kirsch or Fine Bauer. The model industry is growing day by day and offers more and more niches for extraordinary types. Whether one of these ideals will ever replace the slimness craze and the Size 0 models, however, is questionable.

Berlin Fashion Week 2016 – Model Manager: Behind the scenes

Twice a year the fashion industry is drawn to the capital for Berlin Fashion Week. While visitors and the media are mainly interested in shows, buyers and managers from various stores and fashion houses meet at Berlin’s fashion fairs. They all take place parallel to the different fashion shows. In 2016, public events focused primarily on two locations: The “Runway”, beautifully located at the Brandenburg Gate and the “Stage”, Berlin Mitte and easily accessible by shuttle bus from the “Runway”. From Monday to Saturday the motto was: Fashion! Over ten shows, various side events and aftershow parties every day. There was something for everyone. Highlights this year included Marc Cain, Guido Maria Kretschmar, Anne Gorke, and many more. The absolute highlight, however, was the “Candy Fashion”, Key Looks by FashionID (Peek & Cloppenburg) with numerous looks from Esprit to comma; A hall full of cotton candy, sweets and style – but later more about the

Fashion Week Model Management – Preparations, Emails and Networking

For us as managers, Fashion Week naturally starts weeks before – in December. Work starts about six weeks before Fashion Week. In addition to the notebook, the smartphone is a constant companion. The first show packages will be released by the designers. A show package contains among other things the models’ sedcards, but also Polaroids and walking videos. Major modeling agencies are already making special efforts to get the coveted invitations – some even create special sedcards for this event. Why? Fashion Week represents the who is who of the fashion world. Those who can afford it are present here. Therefore it is important to start work early enough. The better the planning in advance, the smoother the castings, fittings and shows run!

While an agency is already rushing into travel plans, overnight stays and the organisation of appointments, the invitations to the castings are gradually coming in. As mentioned above, about fifty individual shows will take place during Fashion Week. This means that there are almost as many model casings in Berlin in advance. A real job.

Models, catwalk training, print sedcards – preparation is half the battle

For us there were almost thirty interesting casting dates this season. We had 10 of our New Faces & catwalk models on site. Just arrived, the rented AirBnB apartment is already being converted into an office for the team. Notebooks, smartphones, casting lists – so that we can work and coordinate perfectly in Berlin, directly from Potsdamer Platz. Advantage: Digital company! We can work anytime and anywhere, so we like to accompany our models on shows and shootings.

We have four days! From notebook to reflex camera, we have everything in our luggage. Monday starts Fashion Week and a few days before, the castings. Most of the Berlin Fashion Week castings take place in the hotels, Berlin Mitte. Anyone who has ever been to a casting knows that many models are coming. Mostly there are even hundreds from all over Germany and partly Europe. Each casting takes place in separate floors and rooms. Immediately after the entrance the first beats form in front of the rooms – from now on it’s time to wait until you can stand in front of the jury. Suddenly the huge hotel lobby is full of people, small suitcases and waiting looks.

Day 1: Arrival and the first casting plans for the shows

Friday 15.01.2015: The Berlin Fashion Week AW 2016 always consists of two parts, the castings and the shows. For spectators often only the important days with the big shows count. For models, however, the days before are crucial. Here, before Fashion Week, model castings for shows and fashion shows take place throughout the city centre. Hundreds of models gather in the capital’s large hotels, but also in showrooms, Ateiliers and agencies. All major agencies are present here. Fashion Week does not only mean prestige, you can make excellent contacts and get to know a lot of new things. The Berlin flair also gives the Fashion Week its unique character. Many models book into the hotels around the city centre. This makes the castings easier to reach and also in the evening there is some time to have a drink with friends or new acquaintances.

Day 2: casting, casting, casting

Saturday 16.01.2015: For four days models and fashion agents speed through the city centre. Everyone is looking for the best jobs and the biggest shows. In the bag are only the most important things, the smartphone is always ready to hand and from morning to evening it goes from casting to casting. While there is a lot of walking during the day, the evening is decisive for the planning of the next day. Which casting should you attend first and which last? Where to find good food quickly and easily? Besides, you have small talk with other models, get more castings. Four days is all about seeing and being seen!

Who knows Castings of Germanys Next Topmodel will be surprised. There is no big stage, no spotlights and only rarely cameras. As a model you have hardly any time, not ten minutes, maximum thirty seconds. Who convinces spontaneously, is often still briefly measured or sent directly to a fast fitting. The jury consists of three or four people who have to evaluate hundreds of people according to purely external criteria within a few hours. As a result, castings often seem impersonal, but this is purely due to time.

The castings usually take place in large city centre hotels, with large rooms and plenty of space for hundreds of models waiting for their Gosee. Small groups are always forming in the waiting rooms, everyone is waiting for the casting call, then the show starts. With the model book and sedcard, the jury is made up mostly of designers, marketing people or other media and production people. Usually there are three or four people. The model walks up to the jury and introduces himself, often with very little time, many only seconds. Many models see here for the first time how big and how strong the competition is in their own and in other model agencies.

Those who have convinced often get a call from their model agent the same evening with the confirmation. Especially good models are also quickly booked so that they are still available for their own fashion show. So the best Mdoels have their success experiences already early – if they did not have first a Direct Booking.

The time in the casting requires a lot of commitment, organisational talent and willpower from the models. Even after the sixth performance on one day you still have to laugh and enjoy your job – even if there were six cancellations before. With this know-how, however, models can learn a lot for jobs and also strengthen their own self-confidence as well as their own perception. The short, but very intense situation with hundreds of other models, shows many a realistic picture and spurs them on to do even more.

The first castings for the shows start Thursday/Friday and then run until Monday evening. Occasionally, however, castings are also carried out before and even during the current Fashion Week. So if you are thinking of joining us as a model, you should plan ten days off.

  • Castings you get almost only with a large, serious model agency or an experienced model agent
  • Show castings go from Thursday to Monday
  • Berlin Fashion Week from Tuesday to Saturday
  • So as a model you should plan on 10 days
  • At least Thursday to Tuesday

 

Fashion Week Castings and decision of fashion designers

Many designers or agencies usually make their decision on the same day. They will then contact you via all channels to secure the best models. Because every fashion show includes a fitting and calltime. During fitting, clothes are tried on the models, which is usually very quick and only takes thirty minutes. The call time is then, so to speak, the start of work on the show day. All models, brand-up artists and stylists gather at calltime. All models get their assigned clothes as well as their styling. The calltime is therefore often a few hours before the show so that all models are guaranteed to be ready and the show can start on time.

  • Big competition: hundreds of great models meet each other
  • Often there is little time left for individual castings
  • Don’t forget your sedcard

The Fashion Week is much more than castings and shows. At Berlin Fashion Week, thousands of buyers from all over Germany come together in the various order fairs, less spectacularly and media-wise. Whether Panorama, Preium or Seek. Outside the shows there is also a lot to experience for people from the fashion industry.

Order and Fair – the heart of Fashion Week

For many outsiders, Fashion Week means above all shows! Fashion shows are held daily at various locations. In 2016 (Autumn/Winter) everything will focus on the collections of the coming Spring/Summer season. While snow still lies outside in the streets of Berlin, buyers jump from fair to fair to cover themselves with the latest trends.

One of the major order fairs is the international fashion fair “Premium”. At hundreds of stands, merchants crowd together large and well-known brands. Buyers can view and order the latest samples directly here. The fair is only open to trade visitors, so fortunately you have enough space to concentrate on different looks, cuts and colours. While strolling from hall to hall on the Premium, there are small delicacies, coffee and also small and large highlights of the exhibitors all along the edge. Not only fashion, but also accessories and jewellery. At the “Premium”, the manufacturers even fill their own hall. Further fashion fairs can be found all over Berlin. Among other things, there are still the “Seek” and “Panorama”, all only a few underground or suburban train stations apart.

Fittings for the big fashion shows at the runway

For model agents and model agencies, the final phase is now underway. It takes less than an hour to recharge your phone. While Desigenr’s assistants call to request models, models request the first fitting and call times and in parallel the first confirmations must be sent via e-mail. The phone doesn’t stop for three days and as a manager it’s hard to get away from the notebook. Therefore the show list fills up, confirmation for confirmation. Models receive asap their information and designers the booking confirmation. Even on Monday evening, plans are still being made for the coming morning – and off we go: It’s Fashion Week!

Shows and events at Fashion Week

From Tuesday to Saturday there are now possible shows and aftershow parties of the designers. Ten designers will kick off on Tuesday. Already on the first day it became clear that there would only be a free minute again at the end of Fashion Week. Our first show this year was “Ivanman” on the “Stage” in the me Collectors Room. Early in the morning, 11 o’clock. Already last season Ivanman made a top start. Oh, this year. Immediately afterwards we went on with “Nobi Talai” in Berlin’s Kronprinzenpalai with our Yulha. Followed by a very floral show by the designer “Lena Hoschek”, perfectly arranged in one line from the place card to the stage. After that jump to the greenshowroom in the Postbahnhof, where our Alex had his first show, parallel Anne and David ran for Odeur at the “Runway” Brandenburger Tor. And the day was only half over – show after show it went on for the next four days.

Fortunately, we were not only allowed to run on the first show, also on Friday two of our models, Helena and Lisa, on the final show of “Ioana Ciolacu”. With creative make-up and strong pictures afterwards.

The big finale: Candy Fashion – KEY LOOKS Show by FashionID

The biggest highlight of the current fashion week took place on Saturday in a “small” circle of people. Top models, stars, agency and media representatives met at the KEY LOOKS Show from “FashionID” by “Peek & Cloppenburg”. The motto was “Candy Fashion”. The entire lobby of Fashion Week at the Brandenburg Gate was transformed into candy and cotton candy land – everything looked like a Katy Perry video. Really great staged by the set designer. Between cotton candy and human-sized lollipops there were cool, refined drinks at various bars, a great DJ and many little surprises and snacks. Almost two hundred people gathered left and right around the catwalk, which in turn was decorated with cotton candy at the entrance up to the ceiling, pink light and lollipops made the picture of “Candy Fashion” perfect.

At the beginning, eight models from a classic cotton candy wagon stood across the catwalk with sweet sugar threads. That put a smile on almost everyone’s face! Shortly thereafter, Showtime, the keylooks of the coming season, was available in all Peek & Cloppenburg stores and online on FashionID. With fashion by Esprit, Marc Cain and Max&Co. Moderated by Annemarie Carpendale (Red and Taff on ProSieben). Each collection got its own music, its own staging for the audience. Our Johanna also attended and showed a total of three looks for the spring/summer season 2016, culminating in creative outsfits for the fashion magazines – each editorial team put together their favourite pieces from the new collections and combined them with accessories and other pieces. Thus, new creations and looks for 2016 were immediately lost.

Modeling in Hamburg! Between castings, magazines and advertising agencies

Modeling in Hamburg? If you’re wondering if it’s better to move to Berlin or Hamburg, then you’re asking yourself the right question! Because you have chosen the two most important cities in Germany, in Hamburg and in Berlin there are most castings but also most jobs for models. Why is that? Hamburg is a beautiful city, not only many models attract, also media companies, celebrities like actors and musicians but also international companies and productions. This special mix makes Hamburg a special hotspot for models. Here you’ll find every kind of job, from catalogue shootings to online shops, production and TV commercials, but also shootings for instagra and productions with influencers for YouTube.

Unlike many other cities, Hamburg is a real highlight not only for many Germans due to its beautiful corners. Many international visitors also come to Hamburg when they visit Germany. The more interesting people and the more companies that work with media in a city, the more jobs there are for models! That’s why it’s worth it if you meet all the minimum dimensions in Hamburg to become a model. Today we want to show you what is important if you want to become a model in Hamburg and what requirements you have to meet.

+ Berlin + Munich + Cologne | Model Castings in February 2019

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, or maybe in the middle of Hamburg, Altona or 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. But the measurements are only a part of the requirements, as well as a healthy diet, body care but also pay 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. Once all the basic requirements have been met, however, the model’s own character and personality are particularly important. The cooperation with the management is very important, at 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 nutrition and regular sports
  • 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, since you should concentrate on school and your education! But as soon as it approaches the end of the 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! Because as a student you are often tied up, between the different exams, the vacation, enjoy the leisure time! As soon as you have the time, you can travel, you can plan days of travel, 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 mathematics, for example when it comes to calculating your own travel expenses. 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, you no longer have to work with everyone. 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 model agency in Hamburg, you don’t need a professional photo shooting. All your modeling agency wants to see in Hamburg is Polaroids. Polaroids are super easy to create, all you need is a good friend, a mobile phone and daylight! You’ll also have to get the right outfit in the city centre, black trousers, a black top, black or white, plain shoes. Your underwear should be black as well. As a woman, you should also buy a bikini and high heels. If you are still new in Hamburg, then we have a few recommendations for you: Fashion Boutiques Hamburg. For your modeling agency, you then grab good daylight and a relatively simple wall. The background of your photo should be as bad as possible so that nothing distracts from you! You don’t need makeup or styling. All your modeling 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 that you wear as little clothing as possible when measuring and be honest with yourself when measuring! You can find more information about minimum sizes and proportions for models here: Model Dimensions.

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

Model Coachings – runway 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 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’re under the age of 16, you shouldn’t do this! It is important that you are seen with your whole body, once your face in the portrait and another photo has 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 be a laughing portrait of you.

After the recording: 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. You want to build a professional career. This can only be achieved with the support of a management team and the network that comes with it. So you always have to be prepared that no success comes overnight. The best Youtubers took years. The greatest Hollywood actors took years. No star is born overnight. Therefore, you should always stay professional, you should take the time for your education, that is for your school, and you should give yourself and your career time. If you develop step by step, build up your model book over the first years, then do bigger and bigger jobs or even go abroad for a few months or years, that’s the right way! A serious model agency like ours supports you with professional management and accompaniment so that you develop your model portfolio perfectly and build up for the ideal market, for your requirements. If you have taken your photos for your first model application in Hamburg, all you need is your contact details and the most important measurements, as well as your body size, shoes or even the clothing size. That’s all a good modeling agency needs from you! The Model Scouts in the agency have a lot of experience and a very professional view to judge applications from Hamburg.

Media city Hamburg: Photographers, advertising agencies and publishers

Who wants to try himself as a model in Hamburg, he should already at the beginning of his career, on good contacts in the advertising and media industry set. Especially in Hamburg there is of course a lot of competition among models. The biggest media and advertising agencies are at home here, from Altona to the harbour and the city. While in other large German cities, such as Cologne or Munich, life is rather quieter. Only Berlin is comparable to Hafencity! What’s the problem? Over the decades, Hamburg has developed into an absolute media metropolis. Here are not only the big advertising agencies at home, in which you as a model naturally have excellent chances to get castings and jobs. More, even big publishers and magazines. In this article we want to tell you a bit about Hamburg castings and jobs as New Face!

Special magazines attract models automatically. No matter if it’s the High Fashion Magazine or other categories, as well as Lifestyle and Interior. For models, especially photos taken in magazines are an absolute reference. Especially in fashion magazines, of course. These photos show that the models have good contacts or a good model agency. As a model you have to pass the preselection before the shooting date. Your luck! As a model in Hamburg, the way is not far to make the leap into the magazines. Even if you travel to Hamburg as a model, you will quickly arrive at the agencies or photo studios. Mostly directly from Hamburger Bahnhof or Airport.

Advertising finances you as a model

The “most money” for you as a model lies in advertising productions – for magazines you rarely get paid. Most tracks in magazines are even created without payment. The photos are then used for their own portfolio (model, photographer, visa, etc.). However, your income comes mainly from advertising or “commercial” jobs. When we talk about the German market, in particular advertising spots, photo shoots for online shops or classic catalogues and image brochures for companies. It is not only about fashion, of course many other brands and companies also book models for your advertising. In Hamburg, for example, this includes insurance and food. Especially big chains (no matter if fashion or food) produce new tracks almost weekly in their studios or those of the photographers and production teams. In doing so, we are always looking for new models to sell the new products of the week optimally in the respective brochures. If you find your regular customers, you’ll make a good living as a model.

Jobs in Hamburg: Online Shops, Social Media & TV Advertising

When you start modeling, your first jobs are to do showrooms. Such a showroom in Hamburg is a small, internal event in which designers, marketing managers or sales staff meet with the customer to select parts of the new collection. These new fashion pieces should of course be shown to you as a model! How are the seams processed, what is the texture of the materials, how does the jeans or jacket fit? In order for the designer, sales manager or marketing manager to have a model directly on site, young models in particular are booked for this type of job. You usually work in Hamburg’s city centre, where designers meet their customers. Once you’ve gained your first experience and upgraded your model portfolio through test shootings with photographers, you’ll get your first jobs for social media shootings or online shops!

Start: Shootings, Social Media, Online Shop and Image

There are always new fashion collections or new products. Exactly, it doesn’t always have to be about fashion trends! Just look at smartphones, there is always a new iPhone or a new mobile phone from Samsung Galaxy to HTC. There are also many new models, new commercials and photo shoots in the automotive industry. Models are needed for every new brand and for every new model. Also for new seasons but also for different seasons, spring, summer, autumn and winter! Each emotional set needs its individual composition of photo models, production team but also advertising agency, which creates the creative concept. There are always new jobs in Hamburg! If you work hard and also show your model agency or management that you are professional on jobs and on time, the customers are satisfied with you, then you will get your first commercials sometime!

Next Level: Jobs for commercials and TV commercials in Hamburg

The word TV is nowadays of course often equated with broadcasting, e.g. through YouTube advertising. Advertising in video format, be it the advertising film for upstream YouTube videos, the advertising film for TV and cinema or even influencer marketing with videos on YouTube, this is where you as a model have the greatest potential. Since the production of commercials by media agencies is quite complex, the productions are not only used in Germany. Unlike regional brands that use your photos in the Hamburg area, for example, such TV commercials are often broadcast throughout German-speaking countries, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Many commercials are also shown throughout Europe or even internationally, in America and Asia. Hamburg offers great potential for you as a model!

Local agency or international agency?

If you want to get started as a model in the field of media and advertising, then you have the best agencies with a management to get jobs not only in Hamburg but also in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Düsseldorf. If you want to work as a fulltime model and professional, then you need not only jobs here but also in other cities. Therefore it is important for you as a young model to choose an international model agency that offers the best perspectives not only for Hamburg but also for Germany and for the international stage, ideally!

Sequence bookings for models in Hamburg

In a career, it is important for every entrepreneur (you are also an entrepreneur) to acquire satisfied, returning customers. If you have customers who are satisfied with you and your performance, the chance increases that you will book yourself again when there are new jobs. Especially showrooms and fashion shows bring you directly to the decision makers in the companies. If you are convinced here, you may soon be booked for an entire Lookbook campaign. Then you not only get the clothes of the customer to present them, you get a whole photo shoot with a big team, in a big studio and with great certainty also a beautiful video, which you can use afterwards for your model portfolio and his portfolio.

Model agencies in Hamburg for serious castings & jobs

There are model agencies in Hamburg, like the proverbial “sand by the sea”. In Hamburg there are not only the classic model agencies, but also many individual model bookers or agents. Their names are often not as well known as the big agencies, but they also have very good contacts in the advertising industry. They often used to work in an advertising agency themselves and then moved into the world of fashion and models. Now they have a good network to certain companies and they are placing these jobs. There are also mother agencies. Mother agencies are so to speak the biggest form of the agency, they not only represent you as a model in Germany but also try to actively bring you to their partner agencies all over the world. As a model, you can also work in the absolute top cities such as New York, London, Paris or Milan. Every model’s dream when it comes to becoming a model!

The big leap is usually only possible with one of the big agencies! They have the necessary personnel and the necessary financial means, which you need as a model, if you want to continue and for example also work abroad. This is not only about the work itself, but also about airline tickets, hotels and contracts that you make with the respective partner agencies prior to each stay abroad. From the Hamburg airport it goes off then into the whole world. USA, South Korea, Greece, France. A big risk, which is why contracts and a reputable model agency in Hamburg are also important. This ensures that everything runs smoothly for you and that you arrive safely in the new country from the very first moment.

You work abroad as a model 45-6o days

As a model you usually work 45 to 60 days abroad. The agencies take over all your investments, so that you can fully concentrate on your job. At the end of your stay the income will be deducted from the expenses and the remaining surplus will be divided among one party. As a model you get at least half of your winnings paid out. Since you had no costs, it is an incredibly great opportunity to expand your model portfolio, get to know new people and above all to make new contacts all over the world.

Reposting of agencies from Cape Town & Co.

If you are convinced of showrooms and fashion shows in Hamburg and Germany, there is a good chance that one of your customers will book you again for a larger campaign or photo shoot. It’s the same with agencies. Once you’ve worked abroad and the model agency has got to know you, appreciated your work and had good experiences with you, they’ll ask you if you don’t want to visit them next season. By working in different countries you gain a lot of experience and your model portfolio becomes more and more diverse.

The big customers and jobs are abroad!

If you go abroad as a model, you have the great chance of more campaigns and much more expensive photo material. While productions in a country like Germany are very expensive, productions in many other European countries or even in an international comparison are much cheaper. In Madrid or Barcelona you will already get much bigger information, if you should go as a model sometime to Asia, it can also be that you have a helicopter, an elephant or something else with you. These photos are of course absolutely great for your portfolio and show that you also exist in larger productions as a model and bring your performance.

Luxury in Hamburg: Models and High Fashion

Who wants to create in Hamburg the jump into the far world, can that! Hamburg is not only well-known for its numerous media, Hamburg is well-known also for its VIPs, prominent ones and its probably well-to-do inhabitants in many districts. Of course you won’t find a luxury boutique in the Schanzenviertel but in the city! Because in every city where luxury is concentrated, there are of course many satellites around the brands. These are companies that accumulate around a certain industry. In the high fashion and world of haute couture, for example, these are fashion boutiques and showrooms of the various fashion designers. Here in Hamburg they present the latest fashion of the season to their customers, directly on the model. The customer can then decide on the spot which pieces to purchase for his fashion chain.

Fashion boutique, exclusive wholesalers and showrooms

Numerous big brands are in Hamburg. Models are booked quite often by them for the new collections. If you were still like on a showroom, imagine it as a very, very small fashion show. As a model you present the new pieces of the designer. In front of you sits a selected audience, but not more than 100 people as in a fashion show, as a rule there are only a few people here. For example, they represent larger fashion houses and brands and are looking for new trends for their stores. That’s why they visit the designers, it’s about trends and novelties! Your job is the presentation and if they like a garment about you, you also present the workmanship and materials. As a model and sales talent, you’ll help the designer bring his fashion to the world!

Specially young models often work in Hamburg showrooms. With this you can earn your first living as a model and then concentrate full time on modeling. Jobs on showrooms are also an excellent exercise, as you have direct contact with the marketing department, maybe even the customer, so fashion designer himself. Here you can not only learn how to present yourself, but also how to present your customers’ products and garments convincingly and authentically. The better you become as a model and the more convincing you are with the customer, the higher is the chance of follow-up bookings.

Models & Model will be in the Harbor City

If you consistently follow your path as a model, you can build a great career as a model in Hamburg. If your career runs smoothly, you can also stay in your (!) city forever, if you like! Through your model agency you have got good contacts in Germany and customers who like to book you frequently. You’ve been abroad, you’ve expanded a folder and now you get new requests from Italy or South Africa every year. If you follow this path for years and stick to it consistently, you can manage to live from modeling and also find your home in Hamburg. The city is beautiful, not only to work but also to spend one’s life here. In the city, at the port or in the various multicultures quarter at the edge.

Minimum measurements for men and women

The requirements for models differ for men’s models and female models in their height, why is that? As you can read in our article about Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture, especially fashion collections of designers are cut to specific dimensions. As a result, uniform fashion shows can be carried out later, as well as showrooms and photo shoots. Due to the same dimensions, it is easier for designers but also for event agencies and advertising agencies to plan concepts and shows.

Women are usually 10 cm shorter than men. If you want to start as a female model in Berlin, you should have a minimum size of 174 cm, even better 175 cm. The ideal case for female models in Berlin is 178 to 180 cm. This gives you the perfect size to work as a model. For men models applies in model agencies a minimum size of 185 cm. Ideally, you should not be over 192 cm. For high fashion models, the figure should be slim, so you have the best chances and to work for international high fashion brands. As a Curvy Model you are already more flexible. The height should be similar. Here again the most important summarized

  • Minimum size for men Models is 185 – 190 cm
  • Minimum size for women is 174/175 – 180 cm
  • High fashion models should have a slim figure and a hip below 92 cm
  • Plus Size and Curvy Models should have a clothing size of 42

Casting Outfit: Simple, so that nothing distracts from you as a model

As mentioned above – we just point out – you should have no styling / make-up during the casting, as well as the photos for your application, simple clothes is the alpha and omega! You should also refrain from makeup, your hair should be open. If you want to work in Berlin, it’s all about naturalness! No tanning salon, no gel nails, no hair extensions and especially no dyed hair! Therefore, come to the casting absolutely natural.

Berlin Jobs: Advertising, Online Shops and Fashion Week

The different jobs that you can do as a model in Berlin are extremely diverse! From the international online shop to the campaign shoot or photo shoots for fashion magazines. In Berlin you can experience much more as a model, because twice a year the Fashion Week takes place. At the Fashion Week, the top German fashion designers will meet to present their new collections for the season. In the process, new faces in the fashion industry are taking part in order to experience many castings once. Because that, you have only in the big mega cities around London & Co.

Showrooms and photo shoot: Jobs in Berlin

The absolute basic job of a model is the showroom. A showroom can present it to you like a small fashion show, only without an audience. Here sellers or designers meet with the customers. For this, one, two or three models are booked, who present the current pieces of the collection directly on the body. So the customer can make a good impression about the shapes and dimensions, as well as fabrics and workmanship of the garments. Larger fashion shows are rare, you will have them later at work abroad, as in Milan, Paris or London. As soon as you have some experience and your model book is set up, you will increasingly work for photo shoots. Photo shoots are extremely multi-faceted, from the online shop to the campaign or even catalogs, the family shooting and couples shooting, the best friends or all alone in the Berlin 200qm studio. The more experience you have gained as a model and the more positive feedback you receive from the customer, the higher your chance of being booked for larger jobs, such as commercials.

Modeling in Munich! Schickeria Munich and Shootings

To work as a successful model in Munich, you have to master more than just good looks! The job of the model is not only the flawless appearance, and well-groomed appearance, from the hair tips to the feet. The job also includes improvisation, acting and elegance. Of course, there are many more factors for successful models in Munich, but these are the absolute basics. What matters is your charisma. Many models are attracted to Munich. Read more

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

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

International Modeln: Chand from Stockholm visiting Germany / Shooting Time

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

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

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

How are the fees different worldwide?

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

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

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

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

Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

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

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

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

On Stay – Two to three months working abroad

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

On Stay Expiration – How to live during your stay

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

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

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

Yulffi: Bangkok, Munich, Cologne, Madrid to Tokyo

Yulffi is traveling a lot. Here he was after his Reebok campaign (Munich) for a stopover in Cologne for the shoot with our Janine, Lea and New Face Johnson. Coming back to Bangkok and with luck to Tokyo.

Guarantee Contract – guaranteed income and great jobs

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

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

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

How much does a successful model make?

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

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.

Model Lea in America – Working and Living in New York & Miami

America – the dream of many, especially models. Lea made it: She got to know modeling in the USA.

“The American Dream” – Lea got to know him

We talked to her and she told us beautiful and exciting details of her journey.

Why did you go to America?

“That was totally spontaneous. I decided to fly to the USA just two days before the trip. It has always been a dream of mine to see America. When winter really started and everything got stressful, I decided to visit friends in Miami.”

How long were you there?

“The plan was a three-week vacation. “In the end, it was six months.”

Where were you in the USA?

“I stayed in Miami for the first four months. Then I went to Chicago and spent the last two months in New York.”
The modeling in NY & Miami

Where did you live?

“In Miami I lived in a model house and in New York with friends I met during my stay there.”

What kind of jobs did you do?

“Very different. Starting with catalogue jobs, online stuff and editorial.”

What was your best experience in Miami or New York?

“The whole trip, actually. I met so many great new people from all over the world. That was the best part.”

How is the model market in America?

“It’s not really hard to get a foothold in Miami. It doesn’t matter if you are New Face or already professional. All agencies get the same castings, which means everyone has the same chance as a model, regardless of the agency you are in. It’s different in New York. The Modelling Agency plays an important role here. “The better your agency, the better your chances of getting a good job.”

Thank you Lea, for the great interview!

Castings for jobs and agencies – The 9 most important things for your next casting

For models, casting is the most normal thing in the world. Whether for fashion shows, commercials or online shops, most model jobs require casting by the customer. Competent persons such as photographers or people from purchasing/sales or marketing evaluate which model fits the imaginary look of the campaign perfectly. Casting dates are set so that as many models as possible can participate. Therefore, they are usually centrally located and take place over several hours. There are also e-castings for larger jobs. What types of castings are there?

Castings – From Gosee to E-Casting

In principle, there are three forms of castings. There are fast castings that we call Gosee, ordinary castings that require different qualifications (acting, sports, interaction, etc.) and e-castings, where the model does not meet the agency or the client live, but records a video that is then sent to the client by the agency or the agent. Here we once described the three basic types of casting for you. At the end you will also learn how to prepare yourself perfectly for a model casting for jobs. A Gosee is about quick convincing. Mostly to get into the next round or to get to the fitting. In the case of a gutter, basic preparation is often sufficient. These include:

9 basics for your next model casting

  1. Fitted clothing
  2. close fitting, clean, white top for women or a shirt for men
  3. close fitting, clean, black trousers
  4. high shoes for women
  5. fine black or brown shoes for men
  6. bikini or skin-colored underwear
  7. Without Make-Up
  8. printed, high-quality sedcard
  9. Tip! For New Faces, a large-format, printed image with names and dimensions is often enough
  10. black, high quality model book

Tip! As a beginner you don’t need a book, just take a smile with you to the casting!

Gosee – The fast, mass casting for models

At Gosee it all depends on you – you only have a few seconds to convince three or four people (jury) of you. Even though sedcard and model book are standard equipment for a model, both are rarely considered in Gosees, as there is simply no time to look at each book individually. Therefore, it is important to convince yourself as a person. With a smile on their lips, the right clothes and a friendly manner. Many models also focus their gaze on one of the jury members. Your goal is to catch or reach the people with little means. Either way, casting is always about showing a natural picture of you. That’s why make-up and styling should be avoided. All that matters is you!

Gosees can usually be found in catwalk jobs and agency castings. Here it is possible to compare a large number of models within a relatively short time and to form an opinion.

Live Casting – The Classic, show your talent

If you don’t get a fitting or a job after a Gosee, don’t let your head hang down. As we have already written in our article about Berlin Fashion Week, castings are real mass events, especially for big customers. From twenty to two hundred models – castings are real competition. Here you can also feel as a model that there are many attractive, perfectly built, talented and likeable models and that you yourself are not the only model. Especially for newcomers, big castings are always a reality experience.

But on castings you often have the opportunity to show more of yourself. Acting talent is often asked for. For example, one shoe manufacturer might want you to talk to a pair of shoes for three minutes, another wants you to see five sports poses in ten seconds. As a model you have to be able to call up all this spontaneously in a casting.

Castings are the rule for jobs offered by your agency or your model agents. Here a recommendation has already been made for the model, the customer usually wants to know or see more directly.

E-Casting – Selection based on your videos

When you take part in an e-casting, it’s often about campaigns that are even bigger. For example, if an international company is looking for new advertising faces, the castings are carried out worldwide, often in the metropolises of the individual countries or regions. Digital videos showing the casting situation will be submitted in advance. That means you introduce yourself and branch as described above, for example acting interludes. The video is then sent as Onetake (without cut) to the customer, who can make a preselection for himself.

E-castings are, as described, often used for large and/or international campaigns, but also for commercials, shootings, and much more. The advantage here is that neither the customer nor the model has to invest much time in casting, driving, etc.. This saves both time, the final selection is then invited to the regular casting.

How to prepare for a model casting?

Before going into the absolute details of a casting, you should first make sure you have your 9 basics together: Plain clothes, no styling. For women this means a white top, black, plain trousers and a bikini or skin-coloured underwear. No matter how, the clothes have to be figure-hugging, so that the jury can also get a direct impression of you. This includes high heels, which you put on directly before the casting. Make-up and styling should be completely dispensed with. Men also wear black trousers and a white shirt. Men also have to do without styling.

Also take your sedcard and your model book with you! If you have already completed your first shootings as a model, your agency may have already printed your own model-sedcard, which you should always take with you. When you stand before the jury, you should leave your sedcard right there. This makes it easier for them to remember your face in the later selection after the casting. As a professional model, with many shootings, you may already have your own model book with you. Of course, your book is always an advantage, so take it with you! You don’t get to use your model folder in every casting (see Gosee), but the customer usually takes a few seconds to browse through the first pages of your book. Tip! Your strongest pictures should come at the beginning. Often the customer doesn’t have time to look at all the pages, so they only look at the first photos of you.

Before you go to an audition, you will of course receive an exact address from your agency. Plan your trip in advance to avoid surprises on the way and always be on time with the customer. Professional models are especially good route planning, so Kudne and the agency can always rely on you and your p+nktlichs appearance – the trust always pays off for you. Go to bed early enough to start the day fit the next morning! Also grab a little snack before the casting, which you won’t lose your energy.

Success at casting? Preparation is everything!

Now you know exactly what is expected of you on Gosees and Castings. With the right preparation your chances of success increase. That means rested, well prepared, on time and with all necessary clothing and promotional material: Sedcard and Modelbook. The procedure is always the same, you enter the room, a jury is sitting somewhere, you introduce yourself, wait for instructions and instructions. At the end you hand in a sedcard, say thank you and leave the room. The more castings you create, the more chances you have of getting good jobs for photo shootings, advertising campaigns and the like.
