Search Model Agency

Finding the right model agency is not so easy for many people when they are looking for the perfect agency or management. The search is quite simple, if you consider a few basic things. That’s why we asked our Chef Booker today to give us some practical tips on how to find the ideal model agency!

Tip number 1: Search engines

If you are looking for a model agency, search engines are your first port of call. Why exactly is that so? Agencies that take care of their models also maintain a high-quality online presence for customers. It doesn’t matter if it is the own website that represents the portfolios of the models or the social media presence, from Tik Tok to Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. For a model agency there is a lot to do in the area of marketing. In addition to the online media, there are of course live events and much more. Who maintains its Internet side correctly, that gives itself probably also in many other aspects large trouble. By the simple search for e.g. “Modelagentur Berlin”, you can find all important pages from Berlin in a fraction of a second.

Important: Pay attention to advertisements

When you start your search on such portals, always pay attention to advertisements. The first places are often booked by paid partnerships. These partners and model agencies do not make it from their own stand on page one, so they buy advertising space. Therefore, make sure that you only click on model agencies that do not have advertising labels. At Google you see for example a small symbol with the letters “AD” which stands for Advertising.

Model agencies on page 2, 3, 4

Many look at their search for the right model agency usually only on the first places. Not only are there the advertisements, on pages 2, 3 and 4 you will also find some interesting model agencies. Especially in the big cities like Munich, Berlin or Hamburg you will find good working agencies on the places further back. Especially if you don’t make it directly to one of the top agencies on the first places, you should not give up the search! Because as we will see later in chapter competition, there are perhaps only too many types that resemble your look already. Maybe that’s why you didn’t get any feedback from the modeling agency. That’s why you should always remember that on pages 2, 3, 4 you will also find interesting model agencies. In big cities like New York, or London, you can even click up to page 10 and still find good model agencies in the city.

Tip number 2: Modelagency.one and Models.com

Worldwide there are two portals where you can find the best model agencies. For one, Modelagency.one. The platform is editorially supervised and model agencies cannot buy themselves paid. But Models.com is also a good option. Here you can shop as a model agency, but you have to fulfill certain criteria. A look at both sides is worthwhile for you!

Modelagency.one lists the best model agencies worldwide in the most important cities, but also the most important core countries for models. On the portal you will find editorial articles, which means that all model agencies are checked and updated by hand. On this page you will find all important contact information from all over the world, no matter if you are looking for a good model agency in New York, London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong or Shanghai. On the respective city pages you will also find small descriptions as well as links to social media profiles, so that you can have a look at the agencies directly!

Have you ever heard of Models.com? The internet platform has been around for a long time and it checks its listed model agencies very carefully. The prerequisites for a listing are, among other things, that you represent three models that are already listed on Models.com, which means that you already have a certain reputation, a good reputation as a model agency.

Here you will find a lot of good agencies, in different cities of the world. From Amsterdam, via Los Angeles, to Shanghai.

The important thing is, to be listed here, you have to pay a lot of money. Not every model agency is willing to spend a lot of money on a link. Therefore many very good agencies are also not listed here. Do you get an excellent overview of most of the top agencies in your city? That’s why it’s worth visiting this page!

Tip number 3: Portfolios of models

After you have found several good agencies, no matter if you use the search engine or brutal ones like models.com, or modelagency.one, we recommend you to open the different model agencies in a new tab. So you have the different agencies all open in one browser. In the next step you go on each model agency into the portfolio of the women. Mostly by the term “Women” or “Main”.

By the different tabs in your browser you can now look at the individual model agencies directly in comparison. So you can judge the model agency according to several criteria.

  • How many models does the model agency look after? Elitist management with 20, or 30, or mass file with over 200?
  • Do you see photos from jobs and campaigns of brands you know?
  • If you compare all agencies, which one looks the most professional?
  • Which model agency shows the models possible natural? Who overdoes it with make up and styling, so that the model is distracted?
  • Is there New Faces, at the age of 15, or 16 years with international look?
  • Are there any experienced models with extremely many photo galleries and different settings?

Of course you don’t have to answer all these questions in a checklist or on a piece of paper. It is important to keep the questions in mind while you look at the portfolios of the different agencies. If you then compare ten or fifteen model agencies with each other, you will quickly find out which agency offers the best platform for models and perhaps in the future for you too!

Tip number 4: Competition in the model agency

As mentioned before, one of the best tips we can give you is that you won’t give up after the first cancellation! Because although you might have the perfect look and size to work as an international model in cities like Milan, Paris or New York, there are already existing models in every model agency. Of course, these have absolute priority in this respect. So if there are maybe already two or three New Faces in your vintage that have a similar look as you, e.g. 1.78 m tall and blonde long hair. Then maybe you didn’t get the chance to start in the agency because of this internal competition. You shouldn’t stick your head in the sand and give up! Stay self-confident and try the next agency right away. It is important for you that sooner or later you find a partner with whom you enjoy working together. In America, the United Kingdom and also in Germany there are many good agencies that take good care of you!

So always apply in several good agencies so that your chances of a model contract increase!

Tip number 5: News and Blog

After you have looked at the portfolios of the models, it is also worthwhile for you to have a look at the news or in the block of the model agency. Here you will find current information, e.g. about the models of the agency, but also news about new jobs, castings and campaigns of the model agency. Here you can see from the regularity of the postings how intensively the model agency takes care of its reputation, i.e. its external impact and marketing! The more informative and extensive the blog posts are, the more effort the agency makes, the more customers they will lure to the website and the more chances you have as a model for jobs! Pay attention therefore also to the interaction and the regularity.

Tip number 6: Social Media

In addition to the news on the website, you should always take a look at the social media networks. With model agencies, Instagram is of course especially worthwhile, since almost every model agency is active here! Model agencies that are particularly hard-working and also have their own YouTube channel and are active there. Anyone who knows influencers or bloggers knows that maintaining a YouTube channel is the biggest challenge. Because you don’t live from just one photo, you have to offer more complex content, often over eight or ten minutes. The videos must appear regularly, so that the followers always stay with them. The more regularly a model agency posts and the more it interacts with its fans and followers, the better.

One last tip: not all covers are the same. A few model agencies fake covers. There are also certain magazines, such as Vogue Italia, where anyone can upload their photos. Each photo will then receive a Vogue Italia logo. So taking photos in Vogue Italia is far from comparable to Vogue USA or Vogue Germany. But covers are always a very good indicator for you, has the model agency managed to inspire models with covers for itself, or does the model agency only represent models who do not yet have a fashion magazine cover? If you answer all these questions, you will surely find the ideal model agency for you, your contract and your career. Our Booking Team wishes you every success!

Model agency student internship

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

Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne and Düsseldorf

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

How long does a student internship last?

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

Do you need previous knowledge for the student internship?

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

How do I apply for a student internship?

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

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

Model agency: Size unimportant? Small models and minimum size

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

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

Model Agency Talents: From Instagram to Tik Tok

Scouting talent as a model agency is not as easy as you might think. For although there are millions of people in the immediate vicinity who have talents, the few special ones, the pearls are hard to find! On the one hand, not everyone assumes that they have the potential to become an international top model, a great influencer, or an actor. Many must have the talent and of course they must be intensively promoted. Our modeling agency specializes in developing talent and bringing it to excellence through individual programs. We represent several categories of talent.

Influencer on Instagram, Tik Tok and YouTube

Before you have the classic high fashion model in front of your eyes, when you think of a model agency, our management does much more! In addition to our models, we also take care of our bloggers so that they become real influencers through sufficient reach. In addition to promoting young talent, the focus is also on the great talents that already exist, with one million fans and more. Therefore, our work is not only in the field of fashion, but much broader than many would expect at the first thought of a model agency. In the field of technologies, automobiles and real estate, we offer jobs to bloggers so that you can promote the products and brands within your community.

High Fashion Models

Our model agency focuses on the development of young models, the so-called New Faces, in particular on international markets. Because not all models are the same. The first stage consists of regional models who, for example, do jobs for regional companies. Those who make it further can also successfully model in the entire national market, from social media to online shops and advertising. One step further are the international models. Of course, the construction is also the most time-consuming and intensive here. At the same time the success and of course the chance for young models on the international market are the greatest. Because here are the big jobs, from lookbooks for famous designers to advertising campaigns. In addition, one is not only dependent on a national market, but has distributed one’s network over many cities, directly on site. Through the targeted selection of local and regional partners, a very strong network can be established for the model. With every year and every season, you visit your partners for two, or three months. So you always have a little break in the national market, so that the customers look forward to your face again!

Musicians in music management

As a music publisher we also publish a few of our talents as musicians. Because especially talents with a beautiful voice and perhaps the right reach in the social networks, one should promote! Of course, the promotion of musicians and talents is just as intensive as the planning of international high fashion models in the offspring, but the investment is still worth it, because it helps young people to build a sustainable career.

As a music publisher, we not only take care of the right framing, i.e. content, organisation, planning, partners and much more, we are permanent contact persons and 360° partners for customers as well as for our artists.

You are looking for a certain talent?

Just as a model is not a model, talent is not a talent. There are many passions of people who are used for example in advertising, or heard by people, or want to be seen. This includes not only our bloggers and influencers, the high fashion models and the musicians, many more talents are hidden in our model agency:

  • Sports like athletics
  • martial arts like Ju Jutsu, or Kung Fu
  • Actors for commercials and movies
  • Speakers and speakers for events

Our model agency and managers will help you find the perfect talent quickly and easily.

Model agency without minimum size: dimensions and weight

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

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

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

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

Be honest with your height

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

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

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

Which models did it without minimum size?

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

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

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

Can I apply to Cocaine Models as a smaller model?

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

Model agency big sizes: When am I too big for the catwalk?

Is there a model agency for big sizes? There are no special agencies for oversized models, but there are good recommendations for you if you are looking for a model agency. As a rule one works as a model agency with female models, who have a body height of 175 to 180 cm. For men models a rough rule of 185 to 192 cm applies. If you are taller than that, then you should perhaps not try one of the classic model agencies, but apply to an alternative model agency or people agency.

People Agency – Alternative to Model Agency

Here you are looking for special characters for commercials, probably the biggest market for models. Many different characters are used in commercials. Different sizes, different hairstyles, from bald to long hair, tooth gaps, freckles, everything that makes a person. These agencies will most likely have the right customers for you, as they specifically ask the people agencies.

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.

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 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?

Model Agency Evaluation

Good ratings are very important for any model agency. Because ratings show positive feedback. They also show you as a young model how serious a model agency is. So if you already see in your Google search that an agency has an average of only two stars for several ratings, you might want to keep your hands off it right from the start. If an agency has more than 3.5 stars, you can almost always assume that it is a good job. Even though it gets harder and harder, here is a good overview of what the majority of opinions about a model agency are. If a model agency has more than 4 stars or even almost 5 stars, you can be sure, if there are many reviews, that the model agency does a good job, has good references and good recommendations!

It is important that you always have a close look at ratings, likes and comments. So we’ll give you a little tip on how to assess the quality of the ratings. Nowadays you can buy both positive and negative feedback. If you look at a few indicators, you can easily see if they are real comments or bought ones. Also this should always play a role in your model agency rating!

Where can you see Reviews about Model Agencies?

There are many reviews about model agencies on the Internet. However, it is important that you use a portal that reflects different opinions and does not only include one or two reviews. Ideally, 20 or 30 people should have voted, because this will also tell you the size of a model agency. Those who have only managed to make two or three recommendations so far are either still at the beginning or their performance is not good enough yet. For ratings there are different portals, e.g. Google.

Google Reviews on Model Agencies

On Google you get a very good overview, because Google has the most users in Germany. This gives you a good overview of the different opinions and statements of people. The small disadvantage is that everyone is allowed to give an evaluation. For example, people who have not been accepted into the agency and are therefore angry are critical. In the short moment of rejection, one clicks quickly on Google and gives a bad rating. As a model, you should also pay attention to this and always ask yourself, is the evaluation serious or not constructive?

Here you can see some of our Google ratings:

Ratings on Instagram

There is no direct way to rate model agencies on Instagram, but you can see how well a model agency takes care of its models, castings, jobs and news from the likes and dislikes of the followers. Those who constantly have something new to report also make a lot of effort. It is important to make sure that the model agency has not only many followers, which you can buy relatively cheaply, but also that the interaction is right. How many Likes does a single photo have? Is the number always relatively the same or do the numbers fluctuate? This could also be an indication for bought Likes. Are there comments from real users? All these factors should always be taken into account in your evaluation.

Model Agency Training – Your Job in Vocational Training

You want to do an apprenticeship in a model agency? Then you have certainly made a very smart decision! Because there are only a few specialists who are interested in working in a model agency. After all, the training is much more intensive and extensive than you might think. Because model agency does not mean photo shootings, but office work! Travel management, customer administration, marketing, public relations, at some point at the end there will be a photo shoot. If you are interested in a model agency training, then we have here once the most important information for you!

Model agent is not an apprenticeship

The direct term model agent, does not exist as training, if you want to do a model agency training, then you do classical training as a businessman or businesswoman for office management or dialogue marketing. During your training you will then specialize in the topics of a model agency. As mentioned above, this includes customer administration, travel management and also, for example, the calculation of usage rights for different media, countries and time periods. Of course, your instructors will teach you everything step by step, so that you become more and more a professional and eventually a real expert in the fashion industry. You have to be communicative, because you are constantly in conversation with customers, with your team or even with your models and of course influencers. Being a model agent means a lot of diligence, punctuality and always being a bit of a role model, because many of your models or influencers are younger than you, even if you are only 19 years old. This in turn gives you one of the few professions in this world in which you can develop very far very early on. In our vocational training, you already have in the first year contact points with international jobs, campaigns, photo shootings, buy-outs, designers, for you sometime an easy game. Of course, only with a basic training, technically well-founded and from real experts.

How long does vocational training take in a model agency?

Like any vocational training, this commercial training is also set at 3 years. Within the three years, you will have a permanent practical orientation in the agency and every week you will also have theory in the vocational school. This combination enables direct access to practical know-how instead of theoretical knowledge as in the university. This makes training in a model agency very attractive for many. After the three years you have your degree and are a state-certified businessman or state-certified businesswoman. In addition within your special field, e.g. office management or dialogue marketing. The vocational training then takes place in our headquarters, which you will find in Cologne. With occasional visits to Berlin, you will gradually expand your knowledge. After the first year of the apprenticeship there are further aspects, e.g. tax issues but also project management for larger campaigns, also more and more for influencer campaigns. Here, too, the combination of practical and theoretical knowledge is worth its weight in gold. The planning of such large projects and campaigns requires sound knowledge, from project management to accounting. Because only when projects end with a positive conclusion are customers satisfied and, of course, so are we as superiors. With this expertise, you can then switch directly to a very good full-time position after three years of vocational training.

How many model agencies offer training?

In fact, there are not many model agencies in Germany that offer a model agency training. In order to be a vocational trainer, you need special prior knowledge, so I have to register with the Chamber of Industry and Commerce and take exams to be a trainer. You will probably only find sound training at every tenth to twelfth model agency. If you can’t find any information about current vacancies on the website, it’s best to send an e-mail to the agency or just give us a call.

How do I write an application?

The most important thing for your application, for vocational training, is a short cover letter, maximum half a page and a short curriculum vitae, maximum one page. If you are applying for vocational training, it is of course clear that you are still relatively young and therefore cannot have much previous experience. That’s absolutely okay too! So just write down your most important knowledge, maybe one or two internships you have already done or side jobs and a short cover letter with motivation for your model agency training! You can find a free template for your application here.

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.

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.

  • 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.

All this has to work quickly so that you have the best chances of getting the jobs. For all photo shootings there is a strict deadline, also for the model selection.

A large part of the coaching deals with the topic of self-confidence and personality. How do you enter a room? Especially when it is early, when you arrived the evening before by plane, came directly from the hotel and now 15 people stand tired on the set and wait. Who’s got the power? You! You!

In addition there are tips from our fashion photographer for the first photo shoot, especially facial expressions, gestures but also posing in groups. E.g. for photos showing friends shopping and having fun together in the city or many different other situations. At the end there’s still the fashion show.

Influencer Marketing & Blogger Relations – Internship / Trainee

You want to become a manager for influencer marketing and social media marketing? You’ve come to the right place for an internship or training in Cologne! Our customers approached us early on about “Social Media Marketing” and so we have constantly developed further. Today our Influencer division reaches several million people, in Germany alone. Influencer marketing is still such a new area that there are very few experts. For this reason, we are also more frequently invited to lectures or workshops in companies that want to further their employees with further education or training. Social media marketing is the most modern form of marketing, as a sub-discipline of online marketing, it deals primarily with people and group dynamics. In contrast to classical advertising, there are hardly any best practice projects or case studies that can be used as orientation. In contrast to poster advertising, this is about very individual concepts. Every blogger is different, has his own opinion, ideas and wishes. As an influencer manager, you have to respect all this and find solutions together with the blogger and the customer. At the same time, you must learn to develop concepts and strategies that will appeal not only to bloggers and customers, but also to 100,000 or millions of followers.
