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 over 40: Successful role models

Become a model at the age of 40? Even at the age of 40, you can still join a model agency and take off. However, it is a great advantage if you have already gained experience. E.g. because you already work as a make-up artist, or in an advertising agency and have sometimes stood in front of the camera. If you want to professionalize yourself, get more jobs and build up your own model portfolio, then it is worth applying at a model agency.

Models over 40 years for photo shootings and advertising

There are extremely many products and accordingly many customers for 40 year old models. Whether it’s beauty products, advertising spots for real estate portals, food or even fashion for online shops. The possibilities are incredibly varied and accordingly one can build up and establish oneself as a model even in advanced age. Especially due to the demographic change, the market for older models is getting bigger and bigger. So if you prepare yourself at the age of 40, so to speak, you can still get jobs later and win many different customers for yourself.

If you have already gained experience and have been active in model agencies before, you will of course have many advantages, precisely because of the demographic change just mentioned. More and more commercials and advertising campaigns are designed for an older audience or target group.

If you want to apply in our model agency, then we are looking forward to your application! Here you can find all information about Model Application.

Faces – Unique models for fashion and advertising

A good model agency for faces is especially valuable for up-and-coming models. Because in management it is always a matter of professionally taking care of your set-up. At the same time, always remember to win your first customers and jobs. Therefore it is not only important for high fashion models to have a good model agency, but also for faces. But where exactly are the differences between a model agency for faces and a fashion model agency?

Peoples! So advertising becomes something special

The difference between a model agency for faces and a fashion model agency lies in the fact that the fashion model agency is particularly committed to models with certain proportions and body sizes. These proportions and body sizes fit perfectly to a certain target group. In the case of model agencies, this is usually based on fashion customers. These require certain ready-made sizes, as the samples are often cut to a single size. In addition, fashion shows require models with a uniform size so that visitors can fully focus on the new fashion collection. So while visitors to a fashion show can concentrate on the garments, or from the online shop on the new pieces of the trend season, it is important that high fashion models always have the same proportions and a similar look. It is completely different with Face Models. They live on the fact that they have a very special look, e.g. by a tooth gap, very curly hair or also by freckles in their face. All this makes them particularly popular, especially for photo motifs, but also for advertising campaigns.

Therefore, some model agencies have specialized specifically in this market. These model agencies are especially called people agencies. These people agencies mainly focus on people with special characteristics. While a fashion model agency focuses less on the character traits of individuals, but rather on proportions and body sizes, people agencies pay a lot of attention to different looks. But why is that?

Every agency has its customers and thus its own special market. If customers are satisfied, they will initiate follow-up bookings, if follow-up bookings are executed, so every time models with a similar look are searched again. At some point the agency services get around and also other customers ask for exactly this model type. This is how model agencies gradually specialize. While our model agency concentrates on the high fashion industry and has clients such as Prada, Dior, Calvin Klein, Lagerfeld, Dolce & Gabbana, other model agencies focus more on the advertising industry. And also here you can earn a lot of money for models. Every week there are new commercials that are broadcast on television, on big screens in the city centre or on streaming portals like Netflix. Whether it’s the new muesli, a comfortable sofa from one of the leading furniture manufacturers, or new clothes, e.g. with People Models, who are walking through the city centre together in a group and have fun! These special agencies are called people agencies.

Should I first apply in a model agency or people agency?

As a rule, model agencies represent the majority of customers. People agencies tend to specialize in a certain clientele. Therefore we advise you to always focus on one of the top agencies before applying to one of the special agencies. If you want to apply to Cocaine Models now, you will find all further information here.

Faces for Beauty Recordings: Make Up and hair

Especially in the beauty industry, you need faces that have a particularly high recognition value. No matter if it is your individual tooth gap or the freckles that make you so unique. For beauty shots and especially for close-up shots, which are also called the closeup scene in technical jargon, you need these faces with recognition value. Imagine a commercial. Your girlfriend calls you and you’re on your way shopping. You jump into the bathroom and the camera is behind the mirror. You smile in the mirror, apply a piece of the cream and immediately feel well and totally fit for the day! That’s exactly your job! Smile, show emotions and at the same time increase the recognition value that only a face model has.

Faces for Jewellery: High-quality shots

Models are not only needed in the areas of beauty, beauty and wellness. Also for jewellery very often close-ups of faces are made. Just imagine a necklace, or a ring that is presented to show the customer the details. There are so many different shots where you need close-ups of faces. Of course also for commercials. If you want to know more about this topic, have a look at our blog posts. Here we have much more information about jobs and of course also face models.

Why do you need a model agency for modeling?

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

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

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

Criteria for serious model agencies in Germany

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

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

Find your perfect model agency – Summary:

Recognize reputable model agencies:

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

Agency is not serious if:

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

The model application

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

What must be in your application?

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

Take and measure measurements yourself

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

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

Picture selection for your model folder

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

Polaroids for Models – Fast, clean photos

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

checklist for models

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

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

Model agency from 30 – Become a model at 30+ years of age

You are looking for a modeling agency from 30 years? With us and other agencies you will also find your home as a model over 30 years old. The big difference is the previous experience, have you already worked as a model and have you knowledge, references and customers to show or do you start completely new?

Modeling from 30 with previous experience

If you have already gained experience as a model at photo shoots, commercials or fashion shows, it is of course much easier for you to join the model agency. Many agencies, including ourselves, are looking for good models from the age of 30. On the way from the first catwalk at the age of 16 or 17, not everyone stays in a model agency but studies, works in a media agency or becomes a doctor or physician in a completely different way. So not everyone stays the same, which is why it is so important for model agencies to find good models from the age of 30. Because in advertising we need you! For new fashion collections, presentations at fashion shows, but also photo shoots for online shops, Instagram to video shoots for YouTube or TV commercials or spots for cinemas. You can already see how diverse the range of possible jobs is that you can do as a model at the age of 30.

Modeling from 30 without previous knowledge and experience

If you want to become a model at the age of 30 and have no previous experience or knowledge of the industry, it will be a bit more difficult! But this is quite normal and with young models completely the same, because of course there are substantially more models without experience who would like to realize their dream. It is therefore worthwhile for you to prepare well for this application.

What are the optimal conditions for models from 30?

The most important thing is that you have a job where you can take flexible time off. For example, if you spontaneously get a job for the next week and have to go to Paris on Tuesday, you might have to tear it down on Monday evening. Could you spontaneously take today off for next week? This is one of the first important questions, your time flexibility for job enquiries and customers.

If you can answer yes to this question, the next step is to go to your place of residence. Ideally, you should live close to your agency or potential client in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich or Düsseldorf and Cologne. This way you can be relatively flexible on the jobs and you can also be spontaneous on castings, e.g. in Berlin Mitte. If your place of residence is 3 hours away from the nearest big city, it will be relatively difficult for you to take advantage of such opportunities. This of course reduces your chances of getting a job compared to the competition.

The third important point that you must answer in advance with a yes is motivation.

  • Do you really have the ambition to concentrate on building your own model book over the months and years?
  • Would you invest time and money to independently get new photo galleries, how to improve your book?
  • Would you invest time and money to be able to go to a casting for example, you would do the same for 10 castings?
  • When a job calls abroad, would you accept it?

You have to answer all these questions and even more, because modeling in one of the big and renowned modeling agencies means full commitment in the booking case.

Model application

If you can answer all these questions with a clear yes, then we are looking forward to your model application. Send us your contact information and your photos, we are very happy. All information can be found here:

Modelagentur Allgäu – Becoming a model in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria

Are you looking for a good model agency in the Allgäu? First of all, congratulations, you live in one of the most beautiful areas in Germany! Also a few of our model agents once lived in the Allgäu. Right in the middle of cities like Leutkirch in the Allgäu but also directly on the edge, Memmingen, Ulm, Sonthofen… Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria are a beautiful area in front of Lake Constance where it is worth living! But many in the Allgäu also have the dream to become a model, photo shootings, commercials, fashion shows,… All this sounds very tempting for many and therefore they are naturally also here on the search for a respectable and good model agency. First you should ask yourself the question, do you want to work nearby or do you want to gain experience as an international model? If you want to work internationally as a model, you should choose an agency from the top four cities. These include Hamburg, Berlin, Munich and Cologne. This is where you have the best chance of attracting prestigious clients, as agencies usually deliver the best performance. With partner agencies all over the world, from Milan to Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo,…

Models and models are produced in the Allgäu

If you want to work locally in your city, you must always be aware that most jobs are done in the big cities. Here sit the photographer, production companies, make-up artists, stylists and of course the photo studios. Similarly, the logistical challenge is much easier in a large city than in an area area. Therefore, a large part of the jobs, certainly over 90%, are found in the top four cities of Germany city or even in Düsseldorf. Since you work relatively dotted as a model, i.e. on individual jobs, it is no problem if you apply to a model agency that is a little further away. Most jobs take place all over Germany anyway, so you have to travel to Berlin or Munich. But as long as you’re at school, the first thing you have to do is set up the school. This can be made relatively dotted, as described above. Individual photo shoots to enhance your model portfolio, printed and online. Until you are about to graduate and you can make the first concrete plans for your first stay abroad in a renowned partner agency.

Step 1 – Construction of your model folder

Before starting any international plans, the first thing to do is to find out if you really have the ambition over a long period of time to work professionally as a model. Then especially at the beginning, you won’t be doing many jobs. You are a student, have little time, have to prepare for Klaus living and working. First of all, it’s all about building up your model portfolio, when it comes to your first job, all the better! The important thing is the time after school, you have to prepare for that. This means getting a good degree at school and getting your model portfolio as far as possible.

Step 2 – Your first jobs

The second step is about your first jobs you will do as a model, especially when the end of your school years can be foreseen. Your school, your class but also your teachers have got used to your job and with good grades you get more and more freedom especially at the end. You can even do a showroom in Paris. But most jobs you will do in a big city nearby, e.g. shootings for online shops or Instagram. Here you can make your first experiences with professional photographers and production teams. Who’s responsible for what? What happens at what time? What exactly is my job on the photoset? After the first 5 or 10 jobs, you have found your absolute routine, so that you can work in Munich or Cologne and then go home again, to the Allgäu.

Step 3 – Model routine through castings and shootings

The more often you do jobs, the more you get used to being on the road, seeing different cities and meeting new people every time you produce. You see, as a model you have to be not only flexible but also communicative! The more often you work, the more you will become friends with the idea of moving to the big cities, because here you can do much more. For example, you can easily experience spontaneous castings for jobs if you live in Berlin. But this is a topic that only comes at the end, because for the time being it is about the construction of your model folder by photo shootings with photographers.

Model Agency Best Ager

Model agency, Best Ager, you’ve come to the right place! Especially our best ager selection is very fine and accurate, for our clients, from all possible areas from fashion to real estate, hotel, lifestyle products, jewelry and much more, many need good best ager model for the presentation of their goods and services. That is why we also offer our customers a small but fine selection and very good Best Ager Models of international level. For automotive commercials and beauty campaigns, we are always on the lookout for new talent for our clients!

What does best Ager Model mean?

The term Best Ager refers to models in an advanced age. The definition is not exact but runs between 50 and 60 years. They represent an upmarket lifestyle and correspondingly high-priced products. Accordingly, you can build up a good portfolio with renowned brands in comparison to 16 or 17 year old models. Since the competition is too small, it is worthwhile to send an application to the model agency. Cause with any luck, you might make it on the board.

Model agency application for Best Ager Model

The model application and the model agency letter do not differ significantly from the younger models. The most important thing that the model scout needs from you in the first step, for the rating, are two to four super natural photos taken in daylight. So that the model scout can see you absolutely naturally, without make-up and without styling. Be just like you are! If you want to apply now, then send us your Model Application as best Ager!

Minimum dimensions and requirements for Best Ager Models

As a Best Ager model, the minimum requirements and dimensions are much more flexible than for young high fashion models. For you, it’s all about expressiveness, professionalism and a certain look that enchants customers! So you don’t need a minimum size of 175 cm as a woman or 185 cm as a man.

Model Agency for normal Weights

Model agency for normal weights – Many are also looking for a Model agency for people with normal weight. While the High Fashion and haute couture rather demands a thinner line, there are more and more customers who also book curved and plus size models. Models who have more on their hips. But when does one become a fashion model and when does curved model?

Our model agency recommendation for normal weights: STIL Models – Commercial & Faces

Normal weight or Curved?

For example, the average woman has a clothing size of 44 (EU). Fashion models usually have a ready-made size of 34, 36 (EU) to max. 38 (EU) for female models with 179, 180 cm. This means that you already count the “normal weight” person as Plus Size / Curved.

Would you have thought that?

Modeling between haute couture and fashion

Of course, people also have their place in advertising, with an average weight. Because there are numerous products in which the customers have to identify more with the model, accordingly the figure must be more authentic.

In fashion, especially with high fashion, it is often important that models change, that they “look the same” so that nothing distracts from the fashion line. This is also the case with almost every fashion show, the focus should be on the collections (for buyers, customers, etc.), not on the individual model.

This is completely different in advertising, where if a face is successful with the viewers or customers, then the model is booked more often for jobs. The famous advertising face! Therefore it is also worthwhile for women and men models with average figures to take a look at model agencies if they bring with them not only the figure or the proportions but also the certain something of facial expression, personality, appearance and emotions!

What are the requirements for models?

The different requirements for models cannot be defined exactly. Every single branch and every single area has its own specifications. In the high fashion industry you will often only find models with a height of 175 to 180 cm, if they are women and for men a rule of 185 to 192 cm applies.

Why is that so? Imagine a fashion show, the more harmonious the picture between the models, the less attention the individual model attracts. All in all, the focus is clearly on the new fashion collection. Models in this area should have a clothing size of 34 or 36. If you’re above it as a woman, but also as a man, you’re more likely to be among the average of society. And advertising also needs such authentic models! Tip: Too big for the catwalk?

Find a Model Agency

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

Reputation and Website: Search and Find with Google

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

Start your search regionally

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

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

References and news on the website

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

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

Rating on Google, Facebook and other portals

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

Find model agency on Instagram and YouTube

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

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

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

Model Agency Beginners

The most people looking for a model agency are absolute beginners, of course! But what does it actually mean to be a model beginner? In principle, there are two stages in modeling, the first being the young age from 14 to 17, when you find out if you really want to do the job. Many have a wrong idea of modeling and think that they can get directly onto the cover of Vogue, Elle or Harper’s Bazaar without any work. Wrong. Modeling is a very demanding job which requires a lot of ambition, motivation, perseverance and the will to persevere at the big castings, e.g. in Milan, Paris or also in Berlin and Hamburg. Because, as a model, you are always surrounded by strong competition. Every year, 10,000 people want to be models. The really good ones apply in the top agencies, many take part in TV casting shows and a much bigger part tries it on internet platforms.

The best way is always a serious model management, because it is not about a unique TV appearance but about a sustainable career. The targeted promotion from the beginning to the end, tips before the big first job and of course also the entire administration as well as the subsequent protection of rights of use. All this is part of a good management and therefore you should also decide for one of the renowned German model agencies. For example, our agency was voted one of the top recommendations for Germany by the Bravo Girl in 2017 and directly afterwards in 2018. This gives you the best contacts to the fashion world but also to advertising. But let’s start at the very beginning.

14 to 17 years Model Portfolio Construction, school & first jobs

When you are young, you usually start at the age of 14 or 15 and send your first model application to the agency. You can see how a model application is structured in our article.

If you get feedback from an agency, congratulations! Because that is already a first big step. Top agencies receive 30, 40, up to 70, 80 applications daily. In a week, in a month, a lot of things come together. Therefore the recall of a model agency is already a first big success for you!

Recording and development for Beginners

In the beginning you compete with different new models, many fight for jobs, photo shoots and customers. But before you even get the chance, you need first experiences through photo shootings and model coachings. Because if you work for big customers, on an international level, the first job has to be right there and it must not seem that you are a total beginner. Although you honestly say that you have your first job today, it can’t look at you. That’s why it’s so important that you first build up a good model portfolio to gain your first experiences.

Construction of the Model folder

In order for your model portfolio to become more diverse and stronger, your agency will arrange your first test shootings with good fashion photographers. They help you not to get a one-page book, but to combine different routes. Sporty, high fashion, black and white, portrait, group photos, you need a strong brand to keep up with the big competition of models! That’s why the structure of your model folder is so important. Read more here about the model folder

//// Insert link to model folder

This is where those who take the job seriously and appear punctually at the test shootings, deliver good results and also satisfy photographers part with professional work. This phase is relatively long and parallel to the school you will do few jobs, because you will first get a good model folder and of course also the time flexibility to do e.g. jobs in other cities. That comes in the 2nd

Your first Jobs

Your first jobs as a model will be mainly for small photo shootings, e.g. for online shop and e-commerce but also for Instagram and Lookbooks. In these first jobs you can prove your professionalism and show that you can do more than just look good. Because at some point the first moving images are added, e.g. for small video clips. These small video clips may eventually become whole commercials, perhaps even with voice content. At the latest here you must not only deliver the good appearance but also be able, e.g. in emotions but also in acting with other people. Imagine, for example, an advertising spot for a large furniture retailer who wants to show how comfortable the new living room furnishings are in a family situation. Your job as a model is to play the young daughter, who doesn’t really want to spend an evening with her family, but because the sofa is so comfortable, she stays at home all night! So you play a happy family, act together, 3 emotions and faces have to fit perfectly on the photo and in the video camera at the same moment. These and other challenges are waiting for you as a beginner in a modeling agency. The more jobs you do, the more confident you become and the better!

Not everyone has this ambition and so many stop on this way, so that in the end maybe only 20 to 30% remain who absolutely want to become a model! What’s the matter with you? Modeling is a demanding job. Nobody becomes a star overnight and the competition is big. Only those who are willing to take on this challenge and see it as an entrepreneurial challenge will be able to survive and get to know the big world.

Model agency NRW – Become a Model & Requirements

Model agency Nordrhein-Westfalen – also in NRW many young models are looking for a good model agency. Whether in Cologne, Düsseldorf or the cities of the Ruhr area, from Dortmund to Essen and Bielefeld. North Rhine-Westphalia is the most populous region in Europe and therefore a perfect stepping stone into a career for models. With good connections to Germany, such as Berlin or Munich, but also close to European metropolises such as Paris and Amsterdam, NRW is an interesting location. Not only the agency landscape, also many customers have their location.

Modeling in North Rhine-Westphalia

Anyone who works as a model in North Rhine-Westphalia has a wide range of possibilities here. Düsseldorf is home to many fashion brands, from C&A to Peek and Cloppenburg to Hugo Boss. Various fashion shows, events and store openings. Cologne is also a media metropolis, with RTL, VOX but also large corporations such as Rewe. Photoshootings, commercials or also Shootings for Onlineshops, here one can collect as a model thus fast much experience, completely differently than in other areas in Germany. Therefore it is worthwhile to think about your own career at an early stage so that you can gain your first experience as early as possible and then make the leap into a professional modeling career.

Minimum dimensions and requirements for North Rhine-Westphalia

As a model it is no different in NRW than in the other federal states, from Bavaria to Berlin. There are individual requirements and prerequisites for each area, which you must fulfill for the majority of the jobs. For example, productions for advertising, fashion and also high fashion differ. The prerequisites for jobs in the beauty sector and jobs for sports models also differ. So there are individual guidelines for everyone. In general, however, it can be said that minimum sizes apply to the majority of models.

Female models in NRW

As a female model you should bring a minimum size of 174 cm with you in NRW, you should have a good skin structure and full hair. Your figure should be strong and you should usually have a ready-made size of 34 or 36. So you have chances for most jobs when it comes to photo shoots for online shops or even for commercials. Since you ultimately want to earn money with modeling, you should find your market and therefore also consider the respective requirements. Ideally, you don’t have tattoos or piercings. Here once again everything important summarized

  • Minimum size women of 174 cm
  • Fabrication 34/36
  • No tattoos, piercings, etc.

Men models in NRW

Of course, certain basic requirements also apply to men and boys, especially when it comes to jobs in fashion. Since most jobs take place here, however, less in commercial advertising, because here the characters are rather interchangeable, you should also as a man observe the requirements and minimum dimensions.

As a male model, a body height of at least 185 cm is recommended. For men, the clothing size varies depending on whether you want to focus on a career as an international model or a sports model. Anyone who later wants to work on the international stage at the age of 18 or 19 should have a slim, slightly defined figure. If you train too much and have too many muscles, you will be out for many jobs for many customers, especially in the big fashion metropolises around Paris and Milan, but also in Germany, e.g. in Berlin.

Wellness model, beauty model, hand model & hair model

Many young people want to become models. But for which area? Many people outside the model scene do not know that models are not the same. Of course, a model can be active in many different areas, but few have real success in all areas. There is a very simple reason for this: the different areas, such as beauty and wellness, catwalk or commercial, require different conditions. These can be combined, but often they cannot be combined in one person. While a catwalk model should be particularly tall and thin, it is more important for the commercial sector to have a beautiful face and a pleasant charisma. But what is the situation in the beauty and wellness area?

How important good beauty photos and spots are, you can see in the advertising!

What is a cosmetic or beauty or wellness model?

A beauty or wellness model often works for cosmetic and body care lines or the health care sector. That is why it is very important for the models to care for their body and face optimally. A clean skin, full and shiny hair, a firm figure. These are the ideal conditions to start out as a model in the beauty and wellness industry. Without these keys, no matter how beautiful your face is, how bright your eyes are or how tight your legs are, you have no chance! The top priority for a beauty and wellness model: the right care.

5 simple care tips for beauty models, wellness models and hair models

Removal of makeup

Quick to bed, with or without make-up? A Beauty-No-Go! Every evening, no matter how late it is, remove the make-up! Not only your bed linen, but also your skin will thank you for it. If you do not remove make-up properly, you will cause skin blemishes. A sticky mascara not only scares your roommates on the way to breakfast coffee, your eyelashes can also break off and you lose more eyelashes than usual. And, as you know, a woman can’t have eyelash volume enough.

Hair Care: Economical washing & care

Wash your hair as rarely as possible. A lot of people turn up their noses at the thought of it. But it is by no means unkempt if you only wash your hair twice a week, on the contrary! Your hair will thank you for it. You will get used to the rhythm and after a short time your hair will no longer quickly become greasy. They become considerably more robust, do not dry out and shine more. In addition, allow a hair treatment to take effect once a week. But beware: don’t overcare your hair!

Secret weapon for tired eyes

You worked until 8am, didn’t find an end at a party or just had a bad night’s sleep? A morning look in the mirror is enough to see: You can’t go to an audition or a job like that! Your eyes are reddened, swollen, and you have dark circles around your eyes. The simple instant solution: Cooling and caring eye pads from the drugstore. A maximum of 10 minutes and your eye area will not only feel relaxed, but also look that way. The simple secret weapon with immediate effect.

Naturally full lips

Not everyone is naturally blessed with full and rosy lips. There is no reason to run for a beauty doctor or make permanent make-up. A good (!) lip balm with vitamin A stimulates the microcirculation in your lips. This makes your lips look plump, soft and rosy.

Naturally beautiful skin

Skin care is a decisive criterion for clean and beautiful skin. The first step is to find out what skin type you are. Do you have oily, dry or mixed skin? If you have analyzed this, for example at the dermatologist or beautician, then you should use appropriate products. You should invest in a day and a night cream. Moisturising care is particularly important for young skin. Be careful not to over-oily your skin, as this will cause annoying pimples. In summer a light moisturizer is usually sufficient, in winter you should choose richer night creams. Perfect for dry skin: An effective moisturizing serum that can be applied under your make-up. You should also make sure you get enough sleep, an average of 7.5 hours a day, and drink plenty of water.

Application areas for beauty, hair, hand and wellness models

Beautymodel – Cosmetics, make-up and hair products

Beauty models can be used in different areas of advertising. Whether in magazines, on advertising posters, flyers, in a TV or online spot or at a live show. The face is in the foreground.

Handmodel – professional for details and product presentation

Handmodels are used in advertising especially in the nail care industry. Also for commercials or advertising images for products that are operated by hand, such as smartphones.

Hair Model – Full shine for new commercials

Hair models are mostly found in TV commercials, online, print or poster advertising for hair care products or hairdressers.

Wellnessmodel – charisma plus beautiful figure

Wellness models are used in the health and wellness industry. For example, to advertise wellness centres, beauty studios, fitness studios or pharmacies. Wellness models are also used in sporty photo series in magazines.

Modeling in Hamburg! Between castings, magazines and advertising agencies

Modelagency Hamburg – Modeling in Hamburg? If you ask yourself if it is better to move to Berlin or to Hamburg, then you already ask 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 so? Hamburg is a beautiful city, not only many models move here, also media companies, celebrities like actors and musicians but also international companies and productions. This special mix makes Hamburg a special hotspot for models. There are all kinds of jobs here, from catalogue shootings to online shops, production and TV commercials as well as shootings for instagra and productions with influencers for YouTube.

Hamburg: Become a Model, Castings and Jobs

Unlike many other cities, Hamburg is a real highlight not only for many Germans due to its beautiful corners. Also many international visitors 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 requirements to become a model in Hamburg. 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.

Prerequisites for Models in Hamburg

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

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

Models & School? First castings and jobs

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

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

Live Casting – A look behind the scenes

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

Application in a model agency as a Hamburger

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

Take measurements yourself: Measure hips, waist and chest

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

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

Model Coachings – Catwalk training, acting & more

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

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

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

Before you send your application to a model agency, you should definitely talk to your parents and of course you should also think about the head gasket you are going to use as a model. 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 reputable 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, you only need your contact details and the most important measurements, as well as the body size, shoes or also the clothing size. That’s all a good model 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, should already at the beginning of his career, on good contacts in the advertising and media industry. Especially in Hamburg there is a lot of competition among models. Here are the biggest media and advertising agencies at home, from Altona, to the port to the city. While in other big German cities, like Cologne or Munich, life is rather quieter. Only Berlin is comparable to Hamburg! What is the reason for this? Over the decades, Hamburg has developed into an absolute media metropolis. Not only the big advertising agencies are at home here, where you as a model have excellent chances to get castings and jobs. More, even large publishing houses and magazines. In this article we want to tell you a bit about Hamburg castings and jobs as new face!

Especially magazines attract models automatically. It doesn’t matter if it’s the high fashion magazines 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. Your luck! As a model in Hamburg the way is not far to make the jump 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 the Hamburger Bahnhof or Airport.

Advertising finances you as a model

But the “most money” for you as a model lies in advertising productions – for magazines you rarely get paid. Most of the tracks in magazines are even produced without payment. The photos are then all used for her own portfolio (model, photographer, visa, etc.). However, your income comes mainly from advertising or “commercial” jobs. When we talk about the German market, especially advertising spots, photo shoots for online shops or classic catalogues and image brochures for companies. This is not only about fashion, of course many other brands and companies also book models for your advertising. In Hamburg for example insurances or also food count to it. In particular large chains (all the same whether fashion or food) produce nearly weekly new distances in their studios or those of the photographers and production teams. New models are always being sought to sell the new products of the week in the respective brochures. If you find your regular customers, you will make a good living as a model.

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

When you start modeling, your first jobs are mainly to do showrooms. Such a showroom in Hamburg is a small, internal event where designers, marketing managers or salespeople meet with the customer to select parts of the new collection. Of course these new fashion pieces should be shown to you as a model! How are the seams processed, what is the texture of the materials, how does the jeans or the 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’s always a new iPhone or 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 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 diligently and show your model agency or management that you are professional on jobs and on time, that 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 also influencer marketing with videos on YouTube, this is the greatest potential for you as a model. 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. However, many commercials are also shown throughout Europe or even internationally, in America and Asia. Hamburg offers great potential for you as a model!

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 can find 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 models 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 like New York, London, Paris or Milan. The dream of every model when it comes to becoming a model! You want to know more about the different agencies? Then read here all about the different Model agency types.

The big leap is mostly 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. Here it is not only about the work itself, but also about flight tickets, hotels and contracts that you make with the respective partner agencies in advance of each stay abroad. From Hamburg airport you can then travel all over the 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 is deducted from the expenses and the remaining surplus is divided among the parties. As a model you get at least half of your profit 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 convince in Hamburg and Germany on Showrooms and Fashion shows, the chance that one of the customers will book you again increases, for a bigger campaign or a bigger photo shoot. It’s the same with agencies. Once you have worked abroad and the model agency has got to know you, appreciated your work and had good experiences with you, they will also ask you next season if you don’t want to visit them. By working in different countries you will gain a lot of experience and your Modelmappe will become more and more diverse.

The big customers and jobs are located abroad!

If you go abroad as a model, you have a great chance of more campaigns and much more elaborate photo material. While productions in a country like Germany are very elaborate and therefore expensive, productions in many other European countries or 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 are also in larger productions as a model and bring your performance.

Luxury in Hamburg: Models and High Fashion

Anyone who wants to make the leap into the wide world in Hamburg can do it! Hamburg is not only known for its numerous media, Hamburg is also known for its VIPs, celebrities and its “well-to-do” inhabitants in many parts of the city. 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 branch. 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 buy for his fashion chain.

Fashion boutique, exclusive wholesalers and showrooms

Numerous major brands are in Hamburg. Models are quite often booked 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 designer’s new pieces. In front of you there is a selected audience, but not more than 100 people like in a fashion show, there are usually 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! Also in Trend: Curvy Models.

Especially young models often work in Hamburg showrooms. As a model you can quickly earn your first living and then concentrate full time on modeling. Jobs in showrooms are also an excellent exercise, because you have direct contact with the marketing department, maybe even with the customer 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.

Modeling Agency Berlin: Application, Castings, Jobs + Teenager

You are looking for a modeling agency in Berlin? And when you find them, how do you apply the best? Castings, photo shoots, trips abroad: So you have to apply in a modeling agency in Berlin!

Requirements for Models in Berlin

First, you should think about the requirements of models. Every modeling agency is focused on a specific market. There are the modeling agencies that work mainly in fashion but also with high fashion. The more exclusive the brands, the more international, the stricter the customer’s specifications. These high fashion agencies also often work abroad – like us.

This raises the first question, do you have time to travel? Such a stay abroad for models usually takes 45 to 60 days. Here you should not only have time to travel, your height should also be based on the international market. That means you should be at least 175 cm tall as a girl / woman, ideally 178 cm to 180 cm. For men models, these measurements are only 10 cm larger. If you meet both criteria, you have the perfect conditions for a high fashion modeling agency and national and international jobs.

Those who do not meet these criteria, should take a look at People agencies! People agencies are less focused on the international high-fashion market and are more involved in advertising. In commercials, it is less relevant if the body size fits perfectly to the international dimensions, but also the proportions around the waist, waist and chest. The jobs in people agencies are just as demanding, from the online shop to the commercial. For Best Ager Models, Tattoo Models, and more. the perfect choice. Here you can find good people agencies.

Become a Model with 14, 15, 16 Years

When do I start modeling the best? Stop: Your school always works! That you have good grades is a very important prerequisite for your entire life. Sure, school is still about “apples and pears”, but in your later life as a model, it’s about the euro and the dollar. Therefore, stay focused on the school first, that should remain so. Why is that? During school, you have very little opportunity to work as a model, you can not travel, you can not stay out of school for several days, and there are always retreats. So if you decide to model at the age of 14, 15 or 16, you should definitely bring a lot of patience with you. It really only starts as a model when you have finished school in Berlin. Then you can not only work in Berlin but also in Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt or even abroad and travel to great cities, such as Paris, Milan and London. As a Berlin model, you can take it much further, traveling to New York and Tokyo. But first everything starts very small.

Model Agency Berlin: Male Models

Are there really any differences between female models and male models? Yes. If you work as a model agency in Berlin with men’s models, there is a difference in the structure of the model portfolio. Many photographers are men and prefer to photograph women. Much like female photographers usually prefer to take pictures of men. Since the number of male photographers is higher than that of females, building a book takes longer than women do.

Nerver seen before: Paris, Milan, Lndon

That’s why it pays to go abroad as a male model. Special if you are still completely new to the market. If you have worked as a model only in Berlin so far, of course, nobody knows you in Italy or France. This effect, we call it “Never Seen Before”, you can perfectly use as young young model from Berlin to advance your career. When you make the first castings at a Fashion Week, you will gain valuable experience and for the first time see how much competition there is and how strong your competition is. 4 million people live in Berlin, in the megacity it is often 10 million, as in New York and Istanbul more than 15 million people or even in Tokyo almost 30 million people. Not only are ten times as many jobs here as in Berlin, here you also have ten times as much competition. Therefore, as a Berlin model agency, you should also look carefully into which market you like as a type.

Modeling worldwide: USA to Europe and Asia

Model Agency Berlin: Teenager

When stressful times come, it’s important to have somebody in your back to keep you away. Sometimes just a sweet word is enough, “you can do it”!

Become a model! Professionalism, good notes and self-confidence

Professionalism is the base for models as it is for celebrities or sport stars. The perception of others will define your value as a model in jobs and in your daily life. Professionalism means trust in ability, being on time and improving steadily. And as already said, professionalism Read more

Competition and criticism: Understand photographers and clients as a model

From the very beginning you they will put you to the test. At castings for jobs, a lot of people will meet within a very short period of time – not only models. Also marketing managers, chef designers, stylists, make up artists and helpers. The competition is very high at castings Read more

Model measurements for catwalks and fashion shows

Fashion is always something special. Fashion lives on Being special! New fashion collections are regularly released by designers worldwide, every season. Not only major international fashion designers and retail chains are working. Even small fashion labels have to constantly present new designs and styles to their customers to gain their attention. So designers and fashion have to reinvent themselves time after time to stay interesting for consumers.

Shows in Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London

At the Fashion Weeks the new masterpieces are regularly presented. In Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London. In spring, summer, autumn and winter, people are always looking for new looks and trends. Almost all designers have one thing in common, they tailor their collections for tall, slender people as mentioned in every post to similar topics. The clothes are more elegant, fabrics unfold their full effect, everything looks more exclusive and high quality! Delicate figures make clothes and their possible price more expensive. Even if not all fashion brands work in this scheme, it’s the majority of the industry.

Dimensions for fashion show

Fashion shows and fashion presentations are subject to an unwritten standard. For female models, a dress size of 34 (maximum 34/36) with a height of 177-180 (176-181) cm is considered ideal at the beginning of the career. Your hip should be under 91cm. Men’s models usually have a clothing size of 48 (max 50/52) with a height of 185-192 cm. A tip here for men’s models: At the beginning of the career you should pay attention as a male model on a younger look. If you look too masculine in your early years as a model, you’ll quickly get a chance on jobs in the fashion industry and on casting. That’s why you should always go to Castings with a shaved beard as a male model in the first years.

Measure yourself!

These are the measurements points for your first modeling agency application. Take care, that you are totally honest. More about: Take your own measurements for agencies, castings and jobs.

New York, Paris, London & Milan: Modeling 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.

Become a Model: Casting Situation and Agency Imagine – what you need to know!

The procedure of the job interview in a modeling agency varies depending on the agency. From very short to short. For open castings in agencies you might have five minutes. At a single invitation maybe ten minutes. Depending on the level of experience, the entire appointment, including arrival, photos and short introduction video takes twenty minutes. Whichever you have more or less time to convince. Accordingly, you should also prepare for the appointment. Let’s take a closer look at the process.

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

Procedure of the interview in the modeling agency: The arrival

Punctuality is so important. In the media industry, “on point” applies. If your appointment is at 1pm, you should be there at 1pm. If earlier, then a maximum of two minutes.

Many tend to come earlier, which is not an advantage. Model agents have their daily business, very tight schedules and exact dates. If you are fifteen minutes earlier at the casting, it may interfere with the internal process. Depending on the size of the agency, there may not be any extra receiving power, meaning the bookers are spontaneously torn from their work. Again and again we have the situation in casting the model already thirty, forty minutes before the start ring or come in directly. Depending on the location you often do not have the possibility to close all accesses. For example, in large castings in hotels many guests are on site. So models can always go directly to the casting room. But if the team is still in the middle of the briefing and you already stand in the room as a model and say hello, that will be negative.

What if you are late? Often, models travel widely for agency castings. Munich, Hamburg, you often have to plan a two-day trip. If your train is delayed on such long distances, everyone understands it. Just call the agency and let me know. You will receive just as friendly. If you can not call anyone directly at big auditions, stay calm and do not get hectic. In Paris they say “C’est la vie”, that’s life. Do not lose your smile.

Your first agency visit, castings, showrooms and shootings: be on time

Depending on the route, you should always plan to be there sooner. You can always get some tea nearby and do a little bit for Instagram and Co. Then you are right nearby, you can go on time and you’re on point.

Casting in the Model Agency: The process

Depending on the situation, you will have a conversation with one or two model agents. They are directly at the customer and know exactly what their regular customers are looking for new advertising campaigns. The person will probably also be your contact in the agency, which means you will work together a lot. So try to be honest and natural right away. Basically, you introduce yourself after the welcome, present your experience, your motivation and your benefits. If you already have a model portfolio, the booker looks at your footage and often gives you a direct, if short, feedback. In most cases, the model agent will also ask you to demonstrate your abilities. That means he wants a short catwalk from you, with short posing and looks.

6 steps for a good walk on the catwalk

A tip for your first walk in an agency. Your walk consists of five elements:

  1. Run – As you approach the model agent, you focus one point behind him or her on the wall. There your gaze stays.
  2. Last Meter – In the final steps (depending on the length of the room) your gaze goes to the model agent
  3. Posing – Stop, enjoy the moment! Count 21 …. 22 … 23 … only then do you go back. At a fashion show, this is the highlight for designers and the media. Photographers can do theirs
  4. Photos of the garments – For the photographers to take enough pictures, you have to stop, pose, exchange views. For a little “catch” you can wink or laugh just before the turn.
  5. Turn – First turn your body. Your gaze stays with the booker for a moment. Then you pull your head and look.
  6. Return – You focus again on a point in the room and are just walking towards it. Your gaze will remain at a height of about two meters so that your head and body stay well stretched.

Depending on the booker’s interest in you as a model, your measurements will be measured, short Polaroid images or video presentations made. The introductory video also follows a fairly steady course. You may need to introduce yourself in English briefly so that the booker can see directly if he can suggest you to international clients. In general, the booker is standing in front of you with a small camera or a tablet. The video should capture you as naturally as possible and is done in a recording.

Short introduction video for model agents and customers of you as a model

  1. Introduction – Hi, my name is Elena, I’m 17 years old and I’m 179 cm tall.
  2. Portrait – At Polaroids, a portrait is filmed first, then your hair is taken back in the braid, you turn into the profile (left) and turn in the other direction again (right).
  3. Whole body – Same procedure as in the portrait, only that you also show your back. For each step, first hair, then hold together. In progress: Frontal view, side-to-side rotation, rear view, side-to-side rotation, frontal view
  4. Walk – The booker will go back a bit, then make a short walk. As previously described, only with other conclusion. You do not run back to the camera, instead you post in front of the camera, showing facial expressions and expressions. After about five seconds Posing you say goodbye.

Admission to the modeling agency

The longed-for call and the admission to the Model Agency: Now it’s time to wait! The process is never the same, some models convince the booker so much that they get the option on the model contract directly in the conversation. Other models you would like to discuss before in a team or look at the book again in peace. In any case, recording is very fast if the agency is interested. Mostly you will find out directly if it works or in two or three days. 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 will probably not work with the recording. Of course, you can ask questions to make sure for you. After that, you should in no case write more e-mails or make calls, because you do not want to annoy the agency and if there is interest, the agency will contact you.
