Modeling in Frankfurt / Germany: Questions and answers

Today we wanted to give all young models in Frankfurt a little insight into the work of a model agency in Frankfurt. Did you know most jobs don’t even take place in Frankfurt! But let’s start with the basic questions about modeling. Becoming a model is quite demanding because you start at school. So you not only have to focus on good grades, but also on keeping your qualifications and improving yourself. Basically, however, the question always arises first:

How old do I have to be to start modeling?

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

Full concentration on school

Good grades and a good basic education will help you a lot in your job later on. After all, the better you get, you have to take flights, you have to reach hotels on time, that in constantly new cities, in which you have to find your way around again and again. Sometimes you have to show some spontaneity for small advertising jobs or moderations. After the shootings or during the breaks, there are little small talks. If you have a magazine shooting and can’t talk to the others off the set, who have usually already seen a lot of the world, you shine less than with good general knowledge. But the closer you get to the end of your school time, the more often you will receive booking requests from your model agency for Berlin or cities outside of Berlin. In addition, there are often days of travel, so you will be on the road for two or three days. The better your grades, the more likely it is that your school is willing to give this freedom.

Legal requirements and labor law

The second important point in the minimum age of 15 years are the work laws and regulations that exist in Germany. With 15 years you can work much more freely, under 15 years you need special permission, e.g. from the youth welfare office but also from a specialist. In an international model agency like ours you work a lot with fashion and products for a target group that is also only over 16 years old. That’s why international modeling agencies are focusing on models aged 15, 16.

International Jobs and Clients

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

In which cities are the most jobs for models?

If you want to start your career from Frankfurt, you will first focus on Germany and the larger cities near you. These include above all Cologne but also Düsseldorf. The simple basic rule says that the more people live in a city, the more jobs, more advertising agencies, more manufacturing companies but also more service providers and more advertising opportunities in the city centre there are. The location of the city plays the two factor, e.g. there is a clear Top 10 in Germany. You can get most jobs as a model in Berlin and Hamburg. Especially in Berlin there are many international productions, in Hamburg there are many media agencies and therefore also many offers for models. Then come Munich, Cologne and shortly afterwards Frankfurt am Main, Hanover and Düsseldorf.

In Frankfurt am Main, it is definitely best to look in the direction of Cologne and Düsseldorf. But you can also do some interesting and exciting jobs in Frankfurt.

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

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

How do I apply to a Frankfurt model agency?

You don’t need much for your application in Frankfurt, the experienced eyes of the model agency see the requirements for models at a glance. All we need from you as a model agency are three to four photos. Important, you don’t have to book a professional photographer to improve your model portfolio. At the beginning, with the application, very simple mobile phone photos are enough for us as an agency. The important thing is that you can be seen in daylight. You should not wear makeup or styling so that nothing distracts from you as a person. After all, naturalness is also the most important thing for customers later on. When you later negotiate with customers or send models abroad, many decisions are made on the basis of Polaroids. Polaroids are just such simple shots. Without styling, makeup, special outfit, nothing distracts from you. The background is a simple concrete wall, you are standing in front of the camera, looking into the lens, without posing and emotions. Naturalness is the A&O.

If you really want to become a model, you should avoid any unnatural influences in advance. In addition belong simple gel nails in addition, the course in the Solarium, hair extensions, spraying lips on, do without everything! Because you are beautiful as you are!

In the following you simply send your pictorial material to model agency, in addition a few dates as well as your contact, your name, residence in addition, the most important measures as well as your body and ready-made size. If a model agency is interested in you, they will get back to you relatively quickly, most likely within five days. So the process doesn’t take that long, if you don’t get any feedback from the modeling agencies, you didn’t like the look. Don’t ask questions because every model agency has limited capacity and wants to take care of the models completely. If you were in an agency tomorrow, you’d want all the attention. If you don’t fit, you should accept this and try your luck in another agency.

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

Body height plays a decisive factor, even if there is no completely uniform scale of measurements, the fashion world in women in particular focuses on a minimum body height of 175cm. You should not be taller than 181cm. This is the perfect size for pre-cut garments as well as for fashion shows in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, when applying as a male model, you should be at least 185 cm tall and no more than 191 cm. So you fit perfectly to the female cast, even if they wear high heels. It is important that you are not too well trained as a man, you should have a defined body, not be a muscle pack.

These are the prerequisites for models who want to enter the fashion industry. Of course measurements can also deviate, models with 170 cm can also have success, however, it becomes purely statistically less. But if you try hard, show full commitment, who knows! You can also be more trained as a man, e.g. if you want to become a sports or fitness model. In an international agency like ours, however, you should usually meet the requirements.

The clothing size for women should be between 32 and 36. Curvy Models are usually available in sizes from 42, for men the ideal size at the beginning of their career is 48 to 52, if you want to become even more of a minimum size, then take a look at the requirements for models here.

What happens after my agency admission in Frankfurt am Main?

The following steps are very different from your age or the time you will spend at school. For example, if you still have two years of school ahead of you, the first two years will focus on building up your model portfolio and preparing it for the national and international markets. Your agency will arrange appointments with good photographers who can help you with your portfolio. It is important for you to always pay attention to the quality, it is better to have few good photos than a mass of reasonably good ones. Because at the latest when you are competing as a model, e.g. for jobs in other cities such as Hamburg or Berlin, you need a strong portfolio in which the customer recognizes how good you are with just a few moments.

After the first year it starts slowly with the first jobs, it takes a little while, because you first have to build a model book and you have to have good performance in school, so that you also get free, most productions, almost all, are during the week. If there is a day of travel and a day for the return journey, and the booking is for 2 days, you are quickly out for a week. That’s why you will work even less during your school time, first doing smaller jobs and the aforementioned showrooms in Frankfurt city centre or for Frankfurt online shops or social media channels such as Instagram photo shootings.

If you are already at the end of your schooling with the agency admission, it is sometimes already about placement abroad. As a model you should go further and further, from Frankfurt to Berlin, from Berlin to London and from London to Milan, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo. This is exactly the plan of an international model agency and the reason why you play here in the professional league. This requires special commitment, self-interest and of course a constant will to improve oneself. A model’s job is very demanding!

Online Editorial: News, Trends and Influencers all day!

What does your job look like?

Start the day, team meeting and editing

Your everyday life consists of the classic office work! With a good coffee or cappuccino you start the day at 9 o’clock in the morning. You have your own workstation and check all e-mails and inquiries first. At about 10 o’clock we meet for a team meeting. Here we will quickly and through the most important tasks of the day. After that, you’ll be fully focused on your work, from agreeing with bloggers’ managements to PR agencies, new imagery that leaves you free in Photoshop, or even different tasks that you do not even count on today! Because as a fashion editor you’re always part of our modeling and advertising agency. So you also take over editorial tasks for our modeling agency, in the field of PR.

Interviews, design, news and public relations

Versatile and varied, our internship as well as vocational training (for office management or dialogue marketing) as a fashion editor. With all your main tasks, a friendly team and constantly new tasks, so that you yourself can grow in the challenges!

The longer your education, the more extensive the expertise that you can acquire. Through our owner-managed agency, you are very close to all topics and learn more than in many other companies. Because with us, a job is not just about the daily work of the same things. You get your own tasks, projects and depending on the duration of the training increasingly more responsibility. In principle, we offer these three forms of training

Internship & trainee: Differences in education

  • 3-month internship for career orientation
  • 6-month internship for career guidance and know-how transfer
  • vocational training in the commercial sector

3-month internship for career orientation

In the three-month internship, you will get to know all important areas at a glance. Then you have an assessment of whether you would make the job as a fashion editor / in fun or not. In the three months you get a task that you are allowed to look after independently, with supervision and guidance. In addition, you will of course be involved in work with our team and get to know a bit of the world of public relations (PR).

6-month internship for career orientation and marketing know-how

Of course, in the six-month internship you will learn a lot more besides the important areas of vocational orientation! The experiences are more. For example, the Berlin Fashion Week takes place every six months, so if you’re lucky, maybe you can visit them for us! Or you organize photo shoots with photographers and models, which are then published in the magazine. You will be commissioned with such larger projects in a six-month internship. You then take care of the various tasks and the various contact persons, all around agencies, designers, models but also bloggers. During the internship, you will not only get to know the superficial aspects of a fashion magazine, but also in-depth work processes in marketing.

Vocational training in the commercial sector: editorial to management

In a vocational training, z.b. as a merchant or as a saleswoman for office communication or dialogue marketing, you will learn everything there is to know about the media world! After the vocational training you have gathered so much know-how that you can gain a foothold in every agency and in just about every magazine. Not only do we teach you how to work editorially, you also get to know a lot of aspects of marketing and especially online marketing, social media and influencer marketing. Who sits in the front row at a fashion show these days? Bloggers! That’s why we no longer just ask ourselves the classic world of printed magazines, but in 2018 have completely focused on the online area. Nevertheless, every six months we publish a best of issue in print, for reordering. Of course you will get to know all aspects of the layout here too, you will be happy to deal with Photoshop but also with InDesign. At the end of your vocational training you have got to know everything and with a little luck and good achievements, you even get a permanent position.

The perfect preparation for a career in the fashion world!

You’ll learn how to calculate how high a fee should be and buyouts for use in specific regions, countries. There are also various media as well as print (magazines, billboards, etc.), social media (Youtube, Instagram, Ads, etc.), TV, video streaming, but also the duration of the campaign plays a major role. Is it just a few months, half a year, a year or even two or five years. You have to calculate all these factors.

In addition to these three factors to the rights of use but also the experiences of the model and the age come. Depending on experience and a model is of course much more present on the set, creates much more outfits or photos or even video scenes. The fifth factor is the customer, is it an international fashion company or a designer, at the beginning of the career. All this you have to consider when you calculate prices.

So you are mostly concerned with:

  • Customer and Project Management
  • Calculation of fees and usage rights
  • Model Management for New Faces and Professionals
  • Career Development and Development

Modern tools: Photoshop, Indesign and Content Management

modeling agency, career in the fashion and advertising industry

Your chance! For this job, there is no study: A vocational training is the only way to learn the profession of the model booker, because there is currently no form of education. We show you in everything about working successfully in a model & casting agency. Our model agency offers you as a model booker / in free space, design options and fun at the job!

What does a modelbooker do in the agency?

The booker of a modeling agency is the communication link between the model and the customer. He ensures the smooth running of the order and is the direct contact of the model. The basic task of a model booker is to generate and maintain customer contacts. He is available as a direct contact for inquiries and knows the faces of the file. He proposes the appropriate models to the customer and is responsible for the entire course of the bookings. With a keen sense for the wishes and requirements of the customers, he goes daily as a model agent on the search for the perfect proposals for bookings. If a model can not run a booked job, Booker takes care of a replacement model. Similarly, the booker is always looking for jobs that can convey to the models of the agency, this is active customer acquisition. Gaining new customers strengthens the entire company. Incidentally, he also takes care of the negotiations on the buy outs. He conveys bills from the bookings to the accounting department.

For the model he arranges information, frame and travel data. So nothing stands in the way of perfect booking.

How demanding is the training to become a model agent?

Training as a model agent is really challenging. Anyone who later wants to really be a model agent should be prepared for the fact that training is the minimum requirement. Such a vocational training lasts three years and ends with a degree as a clerk or businessman for office management or dialogue marketing. In both areas, we focus your work very much on marketing but also organization and administration. All in One!

Later in vocational training, you will manage the fate of our company as a project manager. Models, customers, events, press, national and international. In our modeling agency, it is never boring in a variety of tasks! Before you apply, be aware that model agents or modelbookers are very dedicated people. Not only do you lead the fortunes of customer management, even model trust your work, so you always have to give 110%. You want more insights into the jobs of a fashion agent? Here’s an interesting article for you: Becoming a model agent .

Influencer Marketing & Blogger Relations – Internship / Trainee

You want to be the manager for Influencer Marketing and Social Media Marketing? Since you are exactly right with us for an internship or training in Cologne! Our customers approached us early on the topic of “Social Media Marketing” and so we have steadily developed. Today, our Influencer division reaches several million people, alone in Germany. Influencer marketing is still such a new area that there are very few experts. Therefore, we are also more often invited to lectures or workshops in companies that want to help 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 mainly with people and group dynamics. In contrast to classic advertising, there are hardly any best practice projects or case studies to look for. Unlike poster advertising, these are very individual concepts. Every blogger is different, has his own opinion, his own ideas and wishes. All this you have to respect as an influencer manager and find solutions together with the blogger and the client. At the same time, you have to learn to develop concepts and strategies that not only please the blogger and the customer, but also 100,000 or millions of followers.

Retouch: From the shoot to the photo of the customer

Preparing for Photo Shoots and Customer Projects: The Team

The first step in any campaign or project is to prepare for the photo shoot. Such a preparation and organization is quite demanding, because it’s about having the right people in the team. Stylist, make-up artist, models, assistant, really much planning! So if you do not just want to focus on retouching, but also a little bit about photography and project management, then you’ve come to the right place! Because what was not considered in production, is difficult to save in the post. By coordinating a good photo team, you already have half the battle.

Photo Studio to Customer Meeting: Planning

In addition to the team, it is also about the organization of a photo studio. Photo studios have very different properties. One is the different lighting conditions. Is there enough daylight or is the hall completely darkened, is there sufficient equipment in the required quality and what is the final price of the studio? Customers plan with a fixed budget, so it’s up to you to get the most out of your costs. If you’ve planned the entire team of make-up artists, stylists, models and so far but have also found the right photo studio, you’re ready to go. Our Creative Art Director will show you what a shooting schedule looks like and what are the key points to consider when preparing for a shoot.

At the end of a planning is still the final agreement with the customer, here everything is approved. All ideas, concepts and dates as well as the location are discussed. If everything is then approved, it can go into the final planning. All team members receive a written confirmation, the photo studio or the location are firmly booked. The stylist or stylist now looks after the matching outfits and accessories. Done! At least step 1 of 3.

Photoshooting: The Production Day

As already mentioned, Retouch and photography are all about the fact that already the basics (photos) are outstanding. This includes a professional and experienced photographer as well as a well-equipped studio or the right equipment for indoor (studio) or outdoor production. In the morning all team members gather, the booked make-up artist starts working on the model and the photographer prepares the studio and the lighting with his assistants. Next, the model gets the clothes of stylists, the customer inspects everything locally. If another product comes into play, it is the last step, the set is now ready and it can be photographed.

Every 15 to 20 minutes the outfit is changed, eg. at an online shop shoot. In a lookbook shoot, z.b. for image recordings, you have a lot more time for each individual piece. At the end you have one or two memory cards filled with hundreds of photos and possibly even additional video recordings.

Viewing and selecting the photos for the customer: recommendation

After the shooting, the material is viewed and evaluated. All photos that get a good rating from the photographer or the assistant will be short-listed. A final final look selects the photos that will be sent to customers for selection. From the customer then comes on the same day or a little later the selection. These final photos, 5 to 30 shots will be edited. Here begins the work in retouching.

High quality photo editing and retouching

Naturalness in photos is a prerequisite for high-quality work and quality. The less post-processing in the final results is recognizable, the more qualitative one has worked. Our agency is all about quality. Quality sets us apart from the work of many others and makes our customers satisfied and happy (the highest good). The fact that more people talk about their brand or increase the sales volume in the inner cities or in the online shop. When retouching you work mainly on the computer. For two, three or four hours you are engrossed in the editing of photos.

Retouching is not just about skin, but also about beauty photography, especially with regard to online shops, it’s all about clean floors and backgrounds. Small dirt caused by shoes or abrasion must be removed. Everything has to be right, colors, light parameters and configurations. You will get to know all this know-how during our internship. The longer you are there, the more you learn to enter into matter.

How does an internship take place in retouching (image processing)?

Depending on whether you are here for three or six months – you will get a deep insight in any case! During the three-month internship for retouching and photography, our main focus is on learning something from all areas and on how professional photographers work for advertising and fashion. If you complete a six-month internship, you will receive your own projects and in-depth training in the organization as well as professional practice in the various software programs that are used today in an agency for photography and videography!

vocational training in Retouch?

If you want to have a professional and well-founded education, then we recommend a vocational training as a clerk or a businessman for office management or dialogue marketing with a focus on photography, work and project management.

In the special field of image post-processing, there is no own vocational training. We offer you then a vocational training as a merchant or businesswoman for office management or dialogue marketing with a focus on photography, art buying and project management. In the three-year training you get very deep insights into the world of photography, marketing and advertising. A very interesting mix for your future career. The training also includes extensive training in the field of commercial skills, from customer management to administration and accounting. With this you will get to know all the important aspects, from the practical photo shoot to travel planning, project management and handling.

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

If you still like to start early, even as a teenager, you are welcome in our modeling agency! We are always looking for young talents and promote you in your career. From first-class photographers to first-class customers and a family service. For the first conversation and getting to know each other, we always like to invite parents.

That your parents know about everything is a very important point! As a model, sometimes you are under stress, especially if you are already a teenager and you are still in school in or out of the city center. 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”!

The best modeling agency in Berlin?

About Berlin there is no official ranking for modeling agencies. In Germany, we are in the top ten! Already three times we have been elected to one of the top 10 agencies in Germany, although our agency has only just 3 years – mega start! The last Top 10 recommendation we received in late 2017 from the German youth magazine, the Bravo Girl! To be listed as a Top 10 Model Agency is an amazing affirmation to us, for all the work we invest in our models. Because we are more than a modeling agency, media production, influencer marketing, you are one of the top addresses for Germany, Europe and jobs worldwide! Because we are also very present abroad and work with modeling agencies all over the world, from New York to Hong Kong. If you want to apply now as a model, send us your application for Berlin here.

Model Agency Berlin: Kids

Many questions look for recommendations for children’s modeling agencies. In our modeling agency we start only at 15, at the earliest 14 years. Many others have fun in front of the camera, who are even younger. A list of good recommendations for kids can be found here: Children Model Agency Recommendations.

Model Agency Berlin-Mitte

Fashion Week. Soho. Grebes. We are on! If you want to stop by our next model casting in Berlin-Mitte, then take a look at our blog! You can also follow me on Instagram or YouTube and get the latest castings. If you do not want to wait for a live date, you can also apply online in Berlin-Mitte online at our model agency.

Model Agency Berlin: Jobs

Which jobs can you actually do as a model? The variety is huge! Usually you start your first jobs for online shops and in showrooms. Meanwhile, there are also many photo shoots for Instagram, companies have to post here once a day, sometimes twice. For this, constantly need new photo material, especially as a young model you will be happy to book here, as Instagram also has a very young target group. Most photo shoots and jobs take place directly in Berlin. Mostly directly in Berlin-Mitte, there are many photo studios and of course many beautiful corners and great architectural buildings. Especially on the Museum Island, there are so many beautiful places to take pictures outdoors in the summer. If you’ve gained more experience as a model after a few months, you’ll get your first jobs on commercials. Commercials are much more demanding, as you have to bring along acting talent as a model.

Minimum measurements for men and women

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

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

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

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

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

Berlin Jobs: Advertising, Online Shops and Fashion Week

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

Showrooms and photo shoot: Jobs in Berlin

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

Commercials as Creme de la creme of jobs in Berlin

If you work as a model in Berlin for commercials, then you have already made it very far! For commercials are no longer just about having talent as a model, but also about acting skills. In addition, the reputation of such a commercial is even greater than a photo shoot! With a little luck, the commercial will even be published in several countries, and you will get additional buyouts. This is a fee you get for publishing pictures or photos. This additional fee will be charged in each case if a commercial z.b. used for Germany, on TV and television, for a year. If this commercial is then renewed for another year, or if another country is added, new buyouts will be made.

Become a model in Berlin

If you want to become a model then send us your application, we’ll help you get started in the industry and we’ll help you get it going! With career planning and great attention to detail. Our model agency exists since 2015, after only two years we were chosen by the Bravo to the Top 10 recommendation in Germany.

First, you should collect all the important frame information for the upcoming photo shoot in Berlin. The A & O is the ultimate customer. Who will use the photos at the end of production? This includes on the one hand the concrete date but also the start and end time of the photo shoot. For a booking to run without stress, the appointment should be at least 7 days in advance. Add to that the team of photographer, make-up artist (hair + make-up) and stylist. It is important for the model that a make-up artist is on site, own make-up is not welcome. Ideally, also a stylist. Both should be mentioned next to the photographer in the briefing.

Add to that the location, no matter if it is in Berlin-Mitte or in another city like Hamburg or Paris, for the planning of a modeling agency the knowledge about the place of production is important. Also for you as a customer the proximity of the models is very important and therefore a request should also contain the information about the shooting location. To this end, the rights of use should be precisely coordinated:

  • In which countries is something published?
  • How long will it be published there?
  • In what media is it published?

Production: Photos, Videos, Moderation & Co.

In the following, the job should be described, what is produced? Is it about a photo shoot, alone or with other models or video recordings or even moderation for TV / streaming or fairs. In addition, the rights of use of the recordings come. As far as rights of use (also buyouts) are concerned, there is a large list of possibilities, from social networks to the online shop to image brochures, pure internal use for employee training purposes or even marketing in the cinema and TV or on YouTube and streaming portals , The media should be detailed, as the usage rights for models are very important. A small example: If a shoot z.b. published only on an Instagram channel, for a year, the cost is much lower than if the shoot is used worldwide for an online store, 2 years. In the first briefing, always mention the complete, planned usage rights of the production.

Here is the most important information that you should send to a modeling agency if you want to book a model from Berlin:

  1. End customer – who uses the recordings
  2. Shooting appointment
  3. Shooting location
  4. Team – photographer, make-up artist, stylist
  5. Production (photo, video, moderation, etc.)
  6. Usage rights

Inquiry – How do I contact a modeling agency?

If you have gathered all the information and have no further questions, the best way is to send everything clean in an e-mail. This keeps the history from start to finish and makes it easier to send data. The e-mail will then arrive in the booking team of the modeling agency and will be processed promptly, since all the information already contained in the e-mail can be quickly made a selection.

If you have any questions about the shooting or model booking, it is advisable to call the agency. Every reputable modeling agency has a phone number but also several contact addresses for the different bookers and areas. Here you can pick the right contact person and contact you. Basically, contact via e-mail is recommended. The corresponding model agent will then report back, either with queries or with a first selection of suggestions.

Sedcards – What are the suggestions of a modeling agency?

When proposals for a photo shoot are sent, all sedcards are attached. The sedcard includes various photos of the models, a portrait, a whole body, once fashion, once sports, catwalk, a compilation of jobs that the model has already made. So the customer can quickly make an impression on the look of the model, but also gets all the information about the body size, chest, waist, hip, shoe size and of course hair and eye color.

The Sedcards are images (not PDF files), thus easy to open from the tablet, iPhone, PC or even notebook. With one click you can look at the next setcard and find your own favorites quickly and easily.

Booking Confirmation – The final details of the booking for model and production

If you have made your choice, it will go into the booking of the model. First, we will now discuss exactly what the job of the model is, what times are definitely fixed and what places. Likewise all conditions of use were discussed, now the booking confirmation can be written. After receiving the booking confirmation, you return a signed copy to the model agency, now the model is confirmed for you.

Cost – How much does a model booking cost?

The costs for models are very different, but in a reputable and established modeling agency you should always expect a four-figure amount, which is at least, when it comes to photo shoots and commercials. New Faces with a higher three-digit. New Faces are models that are at the very beginning of their careers and are still working on their portfolio. Smaller jobs and shows, where no photo use takes place (keyword usage rights) but also not a broad public, there are also slightly lower fees. Often also often new faces are booked, the first experiences must collect. Before working on a major fashion show, they first work together in showrooms to gain initial experience with designers and clients.

Overtime – What if a shoot takes longer?

The booking confirmation will already record the full duration of the photo shoot. There is a specific start time and a concrete end time. Between these times, the photo model is on the shooting set. Should a photo shoot take longer, Overtime will charge. Overtime is usually scheduled for one hour, which means every beginning hour is calculated. For most photo shoots, however, you have a 30-minute grace, so you can cover something. Should a shoot be covered for more than 30 minutes, the first hour of overtime will be noticed. There are usually two different models, a full-day booking, here is the model for 8 hours on the set, plus one hour break, which must be set between the 8 hours. On the other hand, there is a half-day booking, this is usually remunerated with 60 to 70% of the rule Gage. Since no other job will be possible that day, the payment is just over 50%. Overtime does not change the buyouts, they stay untouched.

How to become a model at 13 years: Modeling kids

As you can read in our detailed article on modeling at the age 14, it is very important that you have time to model. As long as you’re still in school, you’re distracted by many other important things and you still can not concentrate on modeling. Our recommendation as a modeling agency, patience! Try to get good grades and be diligent at school. Because the more diligent you are and the better your grades are, the more freedom you get from your school when it’s time to graduate. As a model, you sometimes have to travel and spend a day or two on the road. Of course you can not go to school during this time, so it is very important that you have a good relationship with your school and your teachers. If you want to know more about modeling, check out become a model or the blog: become a model.

Wait until you are 14, 15 or 16 years old

Wait another year and then you can send your first model application. Depending on how long your school is, it’s best not to apply to an agency until the school is over 2 years old. During these two years, you can build your model portfolio in peace with test shoots by professional photographers. Test shoots are important to make your portfolio as diverse as possible. Ideally, you can show different facets of yourself so customers can introduce themselves to you in their clothing. At some point you will also do your first sports shoot, your first family shoot and your first fashion movie. With each step you become more professional. However, since the construction takes a lot of time, you should think well about when you start in a modeling agency. If you start early and then have no time or have to cancel frequently, it will not be very positive for your model agent and sooner or later he will prefer other models. So that does not happen, you should only go to a modeling agency when you are 14 or 15 years old and the school is over at.

What measures do you need as a model?

The dimensions for models differ depending on whether it is a job in advertising or in fashion. When it comes to fashion, the fashion designers are much stricter, here are fashion collections cut to a certain size and you should have this large in the ideal case. For women that means a minimum height of 174cm, even better 177 or 178cm. For men, a minimum size of 185cm, so they are on average ten centimeters larger than the women. More about dimensions for models.

Do it yourself: Bust, Waist, Hips and Height

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.

Modeling agencies – From the mother agency to the model agent and boutique agency

Model agency is not the same as a model agency. In Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and worldwide, there are very different forms, from individual model agent to big agency with over one hundred employees. What are modeling agencies? Agencies are always made up of one or more owners who build targeted teams to constantly improve the agency, their reach and customers. As an agency, you take care of the job placement and can also take on additional management through sufficient staff, such as travel planning, ticket or hotel bookings. A modeling agency also provides you with contacts to photographers for image material. Modeling agencies are the usual and familiar way through the holistic approach.

Within the agency world, there are still special alignments. While model charts almost indiscriminately take models and present thousands of models on a website, mother agencies are extremely concerned about you and try to position you as a model internationally. They are more to you than just Modelbooker, they are real contacts for you who are very concerned about your career. In big megacities you will find boutique agencies and widely scattered and barely known, you will find individual fashion agents who only represent a few models but fully serve them as managers (like a mother agency). To get a glimpse into the differences, let’s take a closer look at all agency types:

Model Files – Internet agencies for thousands of models

Model maps are usually online platforms. Models can register here, for free or for a fee. The promise of these platforms: “With our platform you can find customers without an agency! Just get in. “A beautiful simple world. Does not work. The attempt is there again and again. However, model maps do not offer a structure, no advice, no recommendation, no network. They often only earn their money with the advertisements on the web portals. In the pool are thousands of models or that someone checks the quality. As a model, you should refrain from all these platforms.

Mother Agency – Your all-round management as a model

Mother agencies are the absolute opposite. These agencies focus on the placement of models in international, sometimes large agencies. There are mother agencies that only mediate in other agencies and do not serve customers themselves. Such are mainly outside the major destination countries such as the United States or Germany. Modeling agencies are often both in the larger countries. They mediate models in the national market but are also active as a mother agency and coordinate your international placement in agencies. They keep their partners up to date with footage and organize your options and appointments. The billing is then quite simple, the mother agency gets, like a management, ten percent of all revenue. For this you get access to the network and full service of your agency. An extremely good deal. As a high fashion model that can work both for advertising and for international fashion designers, a mother agency should be your goal.

However, parent agencies expect exclusivity for this. Therefore, when choosing a mother agency you should be very careful about who represents you and which models he currently manages. Since you rely on an agency entirely, it should be able to offer you what you need for your career. International contacts to clients and casting agencies, contacts to photographers and magazines, a strong model board that suits your look.

Boutique agencies – right in the big cities

Boutique agencies can be found in the megacities worldwide. Their special charm is that they usually work only for customers in the respective city. Such agencies can be found for example in New York City. You can still have good contacts and are also working as a mother agency.

Booker – Individual fashion agents with good contacts

You can not find individual bookers on the internet. They work alone, without a website and without social networks. They are managers and mediators with their own network. Mostly they worked in big agencies. In the course of time, of course, you will gain valuable contacts and experience in modeling. They now use it as a booker. After many years in a large agency, they explicitly want to work alone. Often they do not even have their own offices. They represent only very selected models, five, ten or fifteen. Not more. These bookers will scout you on the street, just in the cafe or in the gym. Some work at home, others fly around the world with their models. They are also active as a mother agency and bring their models to major agencies worldwide.
