Lara in Paris: modelling, studies & first shootings – Champs-Élysées to Eiffel Tower

Lara – Our young newcomer model from Berlin is in the starting blocks. Lara can’t wait to finally take off internationally and conquer the modeling world of Paris, London and New York. However, at the age of 18, she is waiting another year to graduate from high school. In her weeks off from school she travelled to Paris, had test shoots and got her first taste of modeling on the Champs-Élysées. What Lara has to tell about her experiences in Paris and how she plans her way as a model internationally you can read here.

Interview: Discover Paris as a Model

Question: You were just in Paris for the first time for your modeling career, how was this experience for you?

Lara: The experience in Paris was indescribable. I was warmly welcomed, had a lot of shoots where I learned a lot more and I also met great people! I was in an apartment with another girl with whom I got along very well. We are still in contact and I am really happy to have met her!

Modeling in Paris

Question: What is the most exciting thing about modeling in Paris for you?

Lara: Every evening I got a schedule by email for the next day, where all the important information about the next shooting was on it. I found it super exciting to get to know so many different photographers, who were all totally different in their style and exactly this individuality and range of possibilities fascinated me. Every time I was excited about the upcoming shoot.

Question: Would you go back to Paris to model and live there longer?

Lara: I love the French language and France. It has always been my dream to live there after graduating from high school! If I didn’t have a shooting day during my stay in Paris, I got up early and walked all over the city until late and I never got bored. So yeah! I could definitely imagine living there in a year and then continuing with modeling, because I also really enjoy it!

Question: What are your goals and ideas for your modeling career?

Lara: I always think step by step in life. As long as I’m still in school (one more year) I can’t put all my energy into modeling. Nevertheless, I think it would be cool to keep on doing it on the side. After graduating from high school, I dream of spending a few months seeing all the different places in the world, focusing on modeling and working hard to be a successful model. For example, going to Milan and doing a lot of castings there. When I start studying (hopefully in Paris), I want to continue modeling on the side and make the most of the semester breaks, just like I do now during school.

What he has to tell about Milan, his goals and experiences, you can read here.

Interview: Castings in Milan

Question: You are currently in Milan as a New Face model, how were your first casting experiences?

Antonio: My first casting experiences were very exciting and I quickly realized how important it is to get out of your comfort zone over and over again. Nevertheless, every casting makes me stronger and I feel more and more comfortable, which helps me to bring out my best, because the time is very short to convince the customer of himself.

Question: What do you find most exciting about modeling in Milan?

Antonio: What I find most exciting is the many impressions that you can still gather in such a short time. You get a little insight into their work and you feel very close to fashion there. I also like what you get to see on the way there and am already a real Milan fan.

Work & live internationally as a model

Question: Can you imagine living and modeling abroad permanently?

Antonio: I can definitely imagine continuing to work internationally, but it is also very important to me that I come back to Germany regularly, because I am a family person and like to have my friends around me.

Question: What are your next steps as an aspiring international model?

Antonio: My next steps as an international model look like this:
First of all I want to make a name for myself here in Milan and gain as much experience as possible, and then I’ll move on to other fashion capitals like London and Paris. The goal of every model is of course to get as many jobs as possible.

Last shoot before Milan: photos

Sandra – Wild, Passionate, Power Woman

Sandra Hunke is a real courage talent. She has been an integral part of our agency for several years and has had regular jobs and returning satisfied clients ever since. Anyone who gets to know Sandra can only be thrilled with her as well. At the last agency shooting with Oliver Rudolph Sandra showed herself from many different sides. Here you can find the results of the shoot and a glimpse behind the scenes.

Sandra Hunke – a model with a wild heart and red hair

Stereotypically, people think that models only have to look good. Sandra proves the opposite every day. She is the prime example of an emancipated, strong businesswoman and knows exactly how to sell herself. She is now known from several media for her talent as a craftswoman. Here she proves real woman power and that gender has nothing to do with strength. But also in front of the camera she convinces with her look and her appearance. A real eye-catcher with her red hair and her broad grin, through which cheekily flashes her tooth gap. We are happy to call Sandra a part of the agency and look forward to many more years with her.

Model in Action – Behind the Scenes at the Shoot

The whole process of a shoot is a mega experience. Here you will get more detailed insights into the process of a shooting with Sandra.

The results from the shoot with Oliver Rudolph

Even though this shoot is just one of many in the model’s everyday life, she always manages to wow everyone on set. Her cheeky gap teeth and wild hair make her look a real eye-catcher.

Curved Models: Become a Plus Size Model for Fashion & Advertising

Curvy Models and Plus Size Models are becoming increasingly popular with customers. Did you know that the average woman has a dress size of 44? Even in advertising, this realistic trend is becoming more and more effective. In lookbooks, online shops but also on TV and on city lights in inner cities: curvy women are conquering the market. The trend towards the Curvy Model is based not only on the awareness of the customers but also on the increasing attractiveness of advertising. Curvy models exude a special zest for life, they allow themselves even the little tidbits and still have a dreamlike figure. A good role model for many and that has always been more successful, Curvy Models!

Plus Size Model will be: Agency and Management Application

If you know yourself a friend who should definitely be a model, then talk to her! We are looking for Plus Size and Curvy Models for jobs in Hamburg, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne and Munich! After our last model casting in Berlin , we are still desperately looking for talented young women who want to start as a model. The job of a model is very varied, often one is traveling and traveling or flying for a job in another city, sometimes another country. With us at your side, you learn from Day 1 to deal with shootings. We’ll put you in touch with world-class photographers to help you build your Model Book. Month after month and year after year, your wallet is getting better and better, so at some point you might even be able to make a living out of it. You should not miss the chance! Even if you know someone in your immediate vicinity, they are happy to motivate you to send us some photos. Whether Hamburg or Berlin, the application is quite simple, so you have as little effort as possible.

Applying as Plus Size Model in an Agency: Polaroids

Do you need an elaborate and great photo shoot? Absolutely no way! If you want to promote yourself for the first time as a model, you do not need a lavish photo shoot with a photographer, all you need is a cell phone, daylight and a bright wall. Because a model agency wants Polaroids from you! At that time Polaroids were still made with an analog camera, they show the model quite naturally without styling and without make-up. Today, model agencies still call this type of photo Polaroid. In principle, it’s about:

Standard Photo for Models with Daylight: Portrait + Full Body

Wait until you have good daylight, so you do not need an additional electronic light source. In daylight, your skin is best seen, as well as everything is well lit. In the second step you would need a mobile phone and ideally a girlfriend or your mom or dad. You stand with black pants and black top and high heels with your back to the wall and make a full body photo and a portrait. Here’s a little hint, make some shots and look for the best photos in retrospect. For the model agency you have then usually only 2 photos or 3. One is a full body photo, the second is a portrait and ideally you have a second portrait with a smile. The other photos, you should keep very small, without facial expression. So you can remember that for a Polaroid you do not need styling, make-up, pauses or facial expressions. Pur you as you are!

Outfit: Jeans, Top and Bikini

Now comes the last step, changing your outfit from black jeans and black top to a black or white bikini, ideally, should you have a red or yellow on hand, that’s okay. The important thing is that you do not have any big patterns or designs that could distract you. Even as a curvy model, you should feel 100% comfortable in a bikini! You are beautiful as you are! The phrase sounds simple but was 100% self confidence is everything! Every model, especially at a young age, has spots on his body that he does not like. It’s the same for every human being. As a growing model, however, you should develop so much self-confidence that you look over such small issues. After all, you are a role model!

Joy, self-confidence, charisma and temper

You embody joy, self-confidence, charisma and temperament. After we have ticked off the photos and the self-confidence, only your measurements come! Of course, as a model agency, we do not expect you to measure yourself down to the millimeter, we are concerned with a rough assessment, especially of your height, which you can measure relatively easily. For this we need your clothing size. Ideally, but not important, chest, hips, waist, shoes, jeans.

That’s all you need for your model application, not so difficult right? That’s why it pays to become a plus size model! Especially in Germany you have very dear customers and can collect many great memories for your whole life.

Customers in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne … Online-Shops and Advertising

As a plus size model you usually do exactly the same jobs as any other model, from the fashion show to the look book, online shop or even advertising campaigns and speaking roles in commercials. As a model, you can work your way up, from your first jobs in showrooms or as a test model to online stores, social media shoots for Instagram, Facebook, or even the first shoots for YouTube. Up to advertising campaigns and later even commercials, which may then not only run in Germany but throughout the German-speaking world, Europe or even worldwide.

If you see yourself for the first time on a billboard or in a promotional clip in front of your favorite Youtuber, you’ll be very happy! You will not only gather references and customers, but also meet models with whom you will sometimes even make friends. Some young models even go abroad, work there for a few months and then come back. A priceless experience that can only be found in a model agency. If you’re a model on Instagram or YouTube, you can no longer work as a model in front of the camera, but also as an influencer . Some of our models are not only working for the classic online shop, but also for big shoe manufacturers on YouTube and present new collections or launch large beauty products.

As a Curvy Model, you may as well be a role model for the next generation or your generation. If you’re diligent and often posting regularly on Instagram or posting YouTube videos, you can take it a long way! Equally interesting are jobs as brands Ambassador. If you have worked long enough and have gathered enough references, you may eventually become a brand ambassador for a brand!

Step by step to the experienced model and Ambassador

As a brand ambassador, you stand by your name for the quality of the company and the company gets a bit of your positive and modern image. A win-win situation for both sides. As a brand ambassador, you are not just an advertising face and stand for quality with your name, sometimes you are also booked for presentations at trade fairs or in video clips. A very special challenge, when you no longer have to work just for a picture, but directly for a few hours, in a live situation with many people. Experienced models do it! That’s exactly what should be your path and your motivation, step by step to the professional model.

Our Model Agency will help you every step of the way, from the first professional test shoots with first-class photographers to building your model portfolio, from the first jobs to travel support and as a permanent contact for your career. We support you not only in your career, but also in school, because education always has the first place!

As long as you’re still in school when you’re still at school (read more about School & Modeling ), you will first do fewer jobs, but that’s normal because you should focus on school. The degree will help you all your life! You will need good German, in writing and word, especially if you later also have speaking roles in commercials or moderation, your English should be good, so that you can also talk to international customers on a photo set, mathematical basics should sit with it No one can beat you, sport is important so that you have a good figure later on … and so on! The school is irreplaceable and therefore also the alpha and omega for you, if you want to become a model. Once you’re done with the school, let’s go!

Model Casting: Curvy + Plus Size Wanted

Can I also come to a normal modelcasting? You’re welcome! Our castings are usually held every 3 months in Berlin, Cologne or Munich. Soon we will also be our first casting in Hamburg event, you are also invited to an appointment as Plus Size as a model.

Is there a difference between live casting and online application?

The chances are exactly the same! Only … when you apply online you save yourself and the agency a lot of time. Nevertheless, live casting is always fun! That’s why we regularly organize our appointments, the process is always the same.

You introduce yourself to a variety of models, usually 50, 100 or 200 models. As in the TV Model Castings, a 3- to 4-member jury sits in front of you. You introduce yourself, make a short walk. If you have already worked as a model, you show your Model Book. Such a Go Lake usually takes 2 to 3 minutes. So you do not have much time to introduce yourself, but enough for the jury to make an impression. Since models are always concerned first with the appearance, the assessment is relatively quickly possible, very different from z. For example, with influencers or with experienced models, with which one enters directly into jobs, in which the fees are higher.

As a model that is at the beginning of his career, you expect in principle the highest level of professionalism, of course you can make a few mistakes but it should not be too many. As a model, you also earn relatively good salaries at a young age, sometimes as much as others earn in a month, with just one job. You should always be aware that you are interchangeable. As in any profession, people are to be replaced, so you should always be friendly and give your best.

Plus Size Models for Online Shops and Product Photography

Fashion sells about emotions and feelings, two aspects that you can especially emphasize with a model. Joie de vivre but also fun in the product, that first-class posing with facial expressions and gestures, with every single product image. Particularly in product photography for online shops, the experience of models plays a crucial role, as they create much more outfits in the hour or in the day. The more outfits the photographer can produce for the customer, the higher the payment for the model. A mutual win-win situation.

The just mentioned joie de vivre, Curved Models can bring in jobs outstanding. Because they have a more everyday lifestyle, while at the same time paying close attention to their skin, hair, body and figure, they are for many an absolute role model and partly much more authentic in advertising. Of course, Plus Size Models, although closer to the typical woman, are not supplanting the classic high fashion model, yet they are a very exciting addition to online stores, product photography but also lookbooks. Your energy can be felt on the set, by her friendly nature, as well as the uncomplicated cooperation. Shootings for online shops are thus always done with a lot of passion and experience. Look forward to the results!

Curved Models for Commercials

Just as in the online shop, Curved Models are also increasingly popular in commercials and films. Whether it is broadcast on television in the end or streamed on YouTube as an advertisement, curvy women appear in more and more video clips. This also gives you a more interesting and international look. Put together three different model types in one commercial, e.g. the classic model, a teenage model, a plus size model and an older model, we have a very nice overall image that appeals to a large audience, through the different ages and characters.

Shooting, commercial, our models are versatile!

You are looking for the perfect Plus Size Model? We will find the perfect candidate for you, for all types of advertising and presentation, with experience and expertise, so that production is guaranteed to be a success. Our model scouts are in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne and Dusseldorf to find the best models for you. With construction and first tests with first-class photographers, we can always promise high-quality results. We look forward to you!

Asics: Which Asics running shoes are the best?

asics, sport, running, shoe, men, ladies, campagne, fashion, sneaker, shoes, jogging, health

///TIP: first word in lowercase

Asics is a world-renowned Japanese sports shoe brand that is especially popular among joggers and runners. The major company specializes in running shoes that make a short walk or during sports a great feeling on the foot with their light weight and comfortable sole.

Running shoes and sneakers: For ladies

Walk more comfortably on a long walk, no problem. But another expensive black sports shoe in your closet? Maybe bring a little color into play, maybe something unusual, an eye-catcher. The running shoe from Asics likes to surprise with trendy design and not everyday color plays. The Asics Gel Kayano for women in a color combination that is rather unusual but looks mega good and is lightweight. For every woman who wants to own a different running shoe, an absolute must have.

Running shoes men

Getting a top running shoe at a reasonable price? Super hard, because the nearest outlet center is usually many kilometers away. Conveniently, there are many reviews on YouTube about Asics, one of the most popular brands for running shoes. Product designers are constantly coming up with new designs for men and women. But they also keep using new materials for the shoes, for example to make them lightweight, like the Asics Lyte (which I’ll introduce you to in a moment). Due to the new designs but also the constantly new materials, professional running shoes from Asics of course cost a few euros more, but the investment in a good sneaker for sports is worth it.

Cheap, comfortable, a shoe suitable for running for long distances. Men turn to the Asics brand when choosing running shoes. The Asics provides a stable support while running and a feeling of lightness.

Specials: Gel Lyte, Nimbus & Kayano

Gel Lyte

Lyte? Lyte of course stands for Light! With this Asics means a super light feel that is important, especially when you run longer distances. Whether asphalt or the wet forest floor after a rain. With this shoe you always have a secure grip and it feels like a second skin. Don’t you think? Check out the review from Sneakerness. The Gel Lyte with the Gel sole stands for a casual, comfortable and stylish design. Here’s why everyone should have this shoe in their closet.

Gel Nimbus – Soft or not? Review

Finding the right running shoe is not that easy. In the city center you rattle off store after store and online it is no different, thousands of offers can be found in online shops from different manufacturers and companies. There is one shoe from Asiscs that many runners swear by, the Nimbus! Some may know the term from Harry Potter, but it has nothing to do with it! The big question: Is the Gel Nimbus too hard, soft or even too soft? What does Jamison Michael say about the running shoe from Asics? Does the Gel Nimbus fail or can it prove itself like the other Asics shoes?

Gel Kayano

You are in the city and your favorite sneakers give up the ghost or you are tired of wearing the same shoes every day? You’re also looking everywhere for a shoe that’s comfortable, looks good and goes with everything. Ever heard of the Gel Kayano? No – then it’s time. The Asics shoe convinces not only with the wearing conformity but also with the design. Comfortable, cosy and easy to slip on like a sock, the Gel Kayano is a top shoe that you should definitely own.

Special. Asics x G.I. Joe ‘Cloaked in Shadows’

Everyone knows or has heard of the movie. G.I. Joe. Mega well received science fiction with two parts. If you ask yourself now, what does G.I. Joe have to do with a sneaker or with Asics. Simple, because Asics has released a G.I Joe collection. Color technique very simple for everyone who likes it plain and simple in white and black. But it would be a bit boring if it only had the colors. Asics builds in some elements in their collection that G.I. Joe fans will recognize and love, but also non fans will love the little details. So if you are a big fan of the Dilogy and need a new shoe you should definitely get this shoe. WearTester has tested the shoe and reports about it

Asics Fit Guide

You’re standing in the store and the salesperson asks you for your shoe size and brings you out the shoe and suddenly the shoe is too big or too small. Does this situation seem familiar to you in which everyone has found themselves. Why is it that you don’t have the same size in every shoe? Each brand has small differences miest differently or set the measurement differently. Then there are subtle differences between the models, are they narrow or wide cut. To prevent this there are many sizing videos on Youtube and other platforms. Here you have a video where different Asics models are tried out.

Wearing Asics: Travel and Documentaries

Dubai-Oman: From coast to coast

I say only huge buildings and beautiful coastline and a world-renowned hotel with an unusual shape. Exactly the metropolis and the dream of many tourists – Dubai. Asics is convinced of their products and want to prove it. In an experiment, Asics equips 7 women with their running shoes and films them. Sounds quite pleasant at the beginning. The difficulty here is that the women have to cover a distance of 180 kilometers. As if that wasn’t enough, they run from Dubai to Oman along the coast, over stone paths, dunes and huge sand mountains. Will the Asics products hold up under all these conditions?

Asics Gel Lyte III after 6 years – Test

You want to change something in the world, even just save money or you want to put on sustainability. You know it, you buy a new pair of sneakers every time and the old ones are sold, given away or disposed of. But have you ever wondered how long such a shoe keeps well and how long it is still comfortable? Youtuber Mr.Foamer Simpson, as he calls himself on his channel, makes a video about this and shares his experience with the Asics Gel Lyte III, how it looks after 6 years and how it wears. What makes the shoe so special and what do I have to do to keep it that long?

The future of the running shoe – for 250 euros?

We deal every day with the question: “What to wear today?” or “What shoes to wear to this event?”. Would you buy a running shoe that fits perfectly, is comfortable and gives you some power for 250 Euro? First you would ask me about the brand or what makes the shoe so special. If I told you this was the sneaker of the future and it was perfectly optimized, would you buy it? What does Jamison Michael say about Asics’ running shoe of the future?

Travel tips for models – Municipalities in Rome

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

  1. Centro Storico (Rome) – Prati
  2. Parioli /Nomentano – San Lorenzo
  3. Monte Sacro
  4. Tiburtina
  5. Prenestino / Centocelle
  6. Roma delle Torri

Colosseo – You must see this in Rome

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

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

Dining in an unforgettable environment

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

Rome and its unique places

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

IVANMAN – Menswear at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019

Men’s fashion to marvel at – Ivanman inspires again. Like every year, Ivan Mandžukić redefines men’s fashion with his unusual designs and unusual cuts. We watched his show live and are thrilled by the precision of his work.

Ivanman – fancy men’s fashion

The Berlin-based label Ivanman was founded in 2010 by designer Ivan Mandžukić . The graduate of the ESMOD Academy for Fashion Design founded the Ivanman brand with the aim of creating a combination of classic and avant-garde men’s fashion. The fashion label Ivanman sees fashion as a social phenomenon, analyzes it through deconstruction, examines its individual parts and then reassembles them in textile form. The result is a men’s fashion reduced to a minimalist style, characterised by sharp wearability. Simple but expressive details give the collection its special characteristics. The foundation of the Ivanman brand is a classic and modest fit. By adapting the details during the development process, fashion becomes a portable avant-garde collection. Yet the looks never seem to have been deliberately deconstructed. Currently, the Ivanman collections consist mainly of menswear and accessories, complemented by a few feminine looks.

Ivanman at the MBFW 2019

Loyal to its city, IVANMAN 2019 presents its collections on the catwalks of the Berlin fashion scene. Unlike most other shows, Ivanman is not a typical runway, but a pedestal in the middle of the crowd, where the different pieces with geometric cuts and bright colors are in focus. The models were discreetly styled to keep the focus on the clothes, but we can confirm that Ivanman’s new collection is hard to keep an eye on.
