Read more about models in London here.

    Modeling in London: basis and requirements

    As London is one of the most sought after cities to work as a model, you need to be well prepared to score with the important brands and brands. It’s important that you have a good portfolio. You want to become a model and you want to do it at Cocaine Models. Here we explain the requirements for models. It is a dream of many young people – photo shoots, Instagram, travel and meet many interesting and at exclusive influencer events colorful people. The truth is, it’s a long road. Our management will give you the best support you can have. But before it gets to the model application, there is a lot to know and learn. The competition for you is fierce, especially between the ages of 15-18. The better prepared you are, the faster you will convince!

    3 Ways to Become a Model:

    • Scouting on the street or Instagram
    • Online application with Polaroids
    • Open Model Agency Casting

    Living and working in London, Paris & Co.

    If you have an agency and your portfolio has been expanded a bit and you have collected good video and image material, your agency will usually approach you to talk about a stay abroad. This opportunity is perfect to get to know the fashion world and to get important jobs through castings. This way you will learn to work independently and with the support of your modeling agency you will be able to enjoy your modeling world carefree. How stays abroad can look like, you can find here:

    On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

    The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

    • On Stay is a longer-term stay abroad
    • Models live in model WGs and attend pre-scheduled castings
    • Always in contact with mother – and partner agency

    On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

    First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

    Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the start of the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

    An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

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

    Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

    Application, test shooting, casting, jobs: models in London

    The classic entry into the modeling career always runs through an application in a modeling agency. Model agencies not only help you get the right jobs and contacts, they also support you in your career and in your path. Most model start with mediated test shootings of their agencies, with renowned photographers. Here you can prove yourself as a model for the first time! It depends on your posing but also on your facial expressions.

    You can show how changeable you are and how versatile you can be. But you can also prove that you are motivated and ambitious at the photo shoot set.

    What do you need to be aware of as a New Face in London?

    For you as a newface in the modeling industry, it is important to adhere to the basic principles of punctuality, loyalty, honesty, reliability and ambition. If you meet these criteria, you can go far as a model and later work internationally as a model in London and other cities. Especially as a new face, i.e. beginner, it is naturally more challenging to gain a foothold in cities like London. The world is full of beautiful and interesting models. So it is even more important to concentrate on the essentials and to do the tasks you get from your model agency properly.

    If you want to know more about modeling and career, you will find everything you need to know in our big and detailed model guide.

    Springboard to an international career

    Once in London, the international competition of the most beautiful models from all six continents reaches a new level. Because each of the models that has made it this far pursues the same goal to run at the big fashion weeks and to present the latest collections of the most famous designers. Of course, only the models who have achieved this goal with the help of a modeling agency, such as Gigi Hadid, become publicly known. The many unknown faces of the modeling industry are quickly forgotten. What makes these lucky few stand out today, besides their jobs, is the promotion of themselves on social media. From Instagram to Facebook, a successful modeling career today involves a lot more initiative than just photo shoots or catwalk appearances. In the end, however, it’s always luck that decides which model people will still remember in 10 or 20 years.

    Traveling as a model in London

    Besides the work as a model, you should of course also explore the city in which you are. Often you live as a model in a model flat share or know some through castings, with which you can also tour around. London’s streets are full of fashion boutiques, vintage shops and interesting exhibitions. If you’re lucky, twice a year there’s a chance you can pop along to London Fashion Week and maybe even walk in it. We’ve picked out the best locations for you to take some time out and produce the best Instagram photos:

You always wanted to become a model at CM? You already applied for LA or you never did? Now is your chance! Apply online now or come to one of the next live castings. Here is some first info about LA.

    Becoming a Model and Castings: News

    Indeed, it’s time, the big dream comes true and we open our first office in Los Angeles! January 12 is the official start and probably the kick-off for a lot of work. With Cocaine Models, we have built a strong and popular agency with clients over the past few years. With international jobs, in Europe and America. If you’ve been out of Los Angeles before but haven’t had an agency invitation yet, second chance? And even if you haven’t had any contact with our agency before, this is your chance to apply to our modeling agency.

    Here are some first tips for your model application in Los Angeles and the process.

    Becoming a Model: Requirements in Los Angeles

    For models there are many requirements, for example, in the height, the weight, as well as in the resulting proportions. Even in Los Angeles there are strict measurements when it comes to international fashion clients, commercials and fashion shows. Of course there are always exceptions, the zeitgeist changes the fashion world, the media but also the advertising. What we as a model agency, also our model scouts pay special attention to, are for example small, extra highlights, such as freckles or tooth gaps. So there is no perfect model, not even in LA. But as a model you come very close to the ideal of beauty. As described, you can not summarize it in general have e.g. give a few guidelines.

    For female models, the ideal case

    • Body height women 174 to 180 cm
    • Beautiful and / or striking face
    • Slim proportions

    For men models is the ideal case:

    • Body height from 184 to approx. 192 cm
    • Slim and athletic proportions
    • Muscle building must not be too extreme
    • Cutie or striking

    As described, if you really want to become a model, you should try it and just send an application. Then you will see if the model scout gets back to you or if you don’t get any feedback. If you want to apply, you’ll find some important information right here! Before that, let’s take a quick look at the typical path to a modeling contract. How does one actually become tomorrow? How do you get discovered as a model?

    Become a model in LA: 3 ways to a model contract

    There are 3 ways to become a model.

    1. Scouting on the street or Instagram
    2. Online application with Polaroids
    3. Open Model Agency Casting

    Let’s look at the 3 ways, their advantages and disadvantages, in detail.

    Scouting on the street or instagram

    The most direct and immediate way to a new contract in Los Angeles is to be discovered by one of the model agency scouts.

    The very first step is a visit to our agency, here you get to know our model booker and we get to know you. Here it is no longer “only” primarily about height, weight, proportions, but about motivation and sympathy. This is the fastest way, therefore it is also quickly described.

    You got messaged on Instagram?

    Important. Our model agency writes only and exclusively via the official Instagram channel to @cocaine.models

    If you’ve been messaged by another Instagram account, have a fake. Protect the others and report these channels!

    Online application with Polaroids

    The best way for you is the online application. Here you can check quickly, free of charge and without obligation, whether your type is currently being sought in our agency portfolio.

    The online application is completed in a few seconds, all you need is a few contact details and Polaroids. What that is, you can read here!

    In addition, you only need to send a few initial data and information. The entry is very simple, there is a ready-made application form. You only need to enter a few details, e.g. your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and email address and your height. In addition, you send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo. You can find a good description of how to take your photos in the link above.

    Open Model Agency Casting

    Way number 3, to become a model, are open agency castings, which are offered from time to time. E.g. in the context of Fashion Week. Here in Los Angeles you will get more frequent model casting appointments in the near future.

    How does such an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone through photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively costly for model agencies in the organization. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to organize such live castings, because as described, you get to know the people much better!

    Queue – at open castings there is often a bigger queue if 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It’s best to relax, find a comfortable spot and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.

    Model Castings: Dates in LA

    Don’t want to miss a casting call in Los Angeles? Follow and very much to instagram!

    Tip + Advantage CM: We are looking for models not only for the American market, but also for the European market. An unbeatable advantage, one management for two large territories.

    Here you can see for example one of our last big castings in Berlin, Germany:

    Who are we? CM: The Model Agency

    Our agency was founded in 2015 and since then we have fought our way to the top! With our team! Model bookers, scouts, models, influencers, as well as accounting and international setup.

    • So CM is not “just” a model agency, but a management.

    Another advantage that many models and influencers appreciate about our concept. We not only take care of the placement, but also the set-up and international placement. So that you can work not only in your local market, not only regionally and nationally, but internationally.

    Jobs: fashion show, social, e-commerce, campaign & TV

    We are looking for models for various jobs for our clients in Los Angeles. Starting with fittings and showrooms, for fashion retailers and buyers, to fashion shows, with something more perfect. Typical model jobs at our agency also include social media shoots, such as for Instagram, as well as e-commerce shoots for new collections and campaigns. Once you’ve mastered all these levels, it’s on to campaigns, photo shoots and commercials. With broadcasting, on national TV, streaming providers on an international level, in the cinema, as well as on your smartphone, in apps or in the browser.

    Here again a small overview, to the different model jobs:

    • Showroom
    • Fashion show
    • Social media
    • E-commerce
    • Campaign
    • Commercials

    Welcome to the City of Angels

    From Central City to Bel Air to Hollywood, Long Beach, Venice and a little further to Malibu, no part of LA and yet beautiful and relatively close. But LA is most famous for Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and the world famous Hollywood sign.

    Model Agency Los Angeles

    What does it take to be a model? And… what recommendations do we have for your next spontaneous trip to LA? From restaurants to hotels to the best parks to relax in. Read more about our model agency and Los Angeles here.

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

    International Modeling: Chand from Stockholm visits Germany / Shooting Time

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

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

    Most models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”. However, many also go to cities for a few months to build up the book, cities that you don’t initially associate with fashion, but which are a microcosm all of their own. These include cities like Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here, products are produced for the whole world. Not only fashion, but also electronics and toys. Many producers are keen to do photo shoots and video shoots directly on location. Here the productions are much cheaper. Thus, the teams are larger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

    Elephant, helicopter or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! These countries are a real Eldorado for building up your own book, as you can get an extremely wide range of jobs directly. In addition, there are big brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers right here. This way you can also quickly get international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you earn four-digit sums as a model in Germany even as a New Face, here it’s only a few hundred euros. While German agencies are strict about rights of use, a subsequent payment is often not so certain. The A&O here is a large agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and has had good experiences.

    Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

    At some point comes the moment in which your model agent or your model agency will talk to you about the topic of foreign countries and placement. In principle, there are two different forms of placement abroad.

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

    Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

    On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

    The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

    On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

    First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

    Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

    An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

    Yulffi: Bangkok, Munich, Cologne, Madrid to Tokyo

    Yulffi is on the road a lot. Here he was after his Reebok campaign (Munich) for a stopover in Cologne to shoot with our Janine, Lea and New Face Johnson. Soon it’s back to Bangkok and with a little luck on to Tokyo.

    Garantuee Contract – Guaranteed income and great jobs

    Models who have made it far, had many clients and an absolutely fantastic book will gradually get their first “Garantuee Contracts”. Then you even get a guaranteed minimum income from the agencies. They do this when you are so good as a model that, in theory, you don’t need to travel abroad anymore. Or, you already travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you made it here, congratulations.

    At some point you will just travel. No longer for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. Because at some point your network will have grown so much that your management will completely take over the management of your time. You constantly get requests and have to plan your life and all your travels exactly.

    If you haven’t had the question in your head for a long time, maybe now you will.

    How much does a successful model earn anyway?

    As I said, at the beginning of your career you will usually do small jobs for relatively, small fees. Models who make it definitely have the chance to earn an incredible amount of money. Of course I can’t tell you the exact fees, but I want to give you an insight. In Germany you will get for most shootings and shoots fees that are in the four-digit range. Some of them even fall into the three-digit range, for example for small labels that you like yourself. Commercials, on the other hand, quickly bring in high four-figure, sometimes five-figure amounts. It depends on how many production days there are, in how many countries the commercial is broadcast and in which media. For a large commercial, for example for a luxury manufacturer, it can be twenty to fifty thousand euros or US dollars. Whereby the limits are open, some make it already in very young years to etrem much success like supermodel Cara Delevingne or Beckham offspring Brooklyn Beckham. For his first Burberry campaign he got 57,000 US dollars, at the age of 19. It’s worth travelling for, bit by bit: Berlin, Milan, Paris, New York.

If you want to apply as a model for the very first time, you don’t need an elaborate photo shoot with a photographer, all you need is a mobile phone, daylight and a bright wall. Because a model agency wants Polaroids of you! Polaroids were taken with an analog camera back then, they show the model naturally without styling and without make-up. Today, model agencies still call these types of photos Polaroid. Basically, it’s about:

      Standard photo for models with daylight: portrait + full body

      Wait until you have good daylight so you don’t need an additional electronic light source. In the daylight your skin is best to see, also everything is well illuminated. In the second step you need a mobile phone and ideally a friend or your mom or dad. You stand with black pants and black top as well as high heels with your back to the wall and take a full body photo as well as a portrait. Here is a little tip, take a few pictures and choose the best ones afterwards. For the model agency you have then usually only 2 photos or 3. One is a full body photo, the second is a portrait and ideally you have a second portrait with a smile. The other photos, you should keep very small, without facial expression. So you can remember, for a Polaroid you don’t need any styling, no make-up, no pauses, no facial expressions. Just you, as you are!

      Outfit: jeans, top and bikini

      Now comes the last step, change your outfit from black jeans and black top to a black or white bikini, ideally, if you have a red or yellow one on hand, that’s okay too. The important thing is that you don’t have any big patterns or designs that might distract from you. Even as a curvy model you should feel 100% comfortable in a bikini! You are beautiful the way you are! The phrase sounds simple but is 100% true, confidence is everything! Every model, especially at a young age, has parts of their body they like less. It’s the same for everyone. However, as a model growing up, you should develop enough self-confidence to look past such small issues. After all, you are a role model!

      Joy, self-confidence, charisma and temperament

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

      That’s all you need for your model application, not so difficult or? That’s exactly why it’s worth becoming a plus size model! Especially in Germany you have very nice customers and can collect many great memories for your whole life.

      Customers in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne… Online shops and advertising

      As a plus size model you usually do exactly the same jobs as any other model, from fashion shows to lookbooks, online shops or even advertising campaigns and speaking roles in commercials. So as a model you can work your way up, from your first jobs in showrooms or as a test model to online shops, social media shoots for Instagram, Facebook or even first shoots for YouTube. All the way to advertising campaigns and later even commercials that might not only run in Germany but throughout the entire German-speaking world, Europe or even worldwide.

      When you see yourself on a billboard for the first time or in a commercial in front of your favorite Youtuber, you’re going to be very excited! Not only will you collect references and clients, but you’ll also meet models, some of whom you’ll even become friends with. Some young models even go abroad, work there for a few months and then come back. It’s a priceless experience that you can only gain in a modeling agency. If you are skillful as a model on Instagram or YouTube, you can no longer just work as a model in front of the camera but also as an influencer. Some of our models are now not only working for the classic online shop, but are also on YouTube for large shoe manufacturers and present new collections or make launches for large beauty products.

      As a curvy model, you might as well be a role model for the next generation or your generation. If you’re diligent and post frequently, regularly on Instagram or post YouTube videos, you can quickly take it much further! Brand ambassador jobs are just as interesting. If you’ve worked long enough and accumulated enough credentials, you may eventually be signed on by a brand as a brand ambassador!

      Step by step to an experienced model and ambassador

      As a brand ambassador, you then stand with your name for the quality of the company and the company gets a bit of your positive and modern image. A win-win situation for both sides. As a brand ambassador you are not only an advertising face and stand with your name for quality, sometimes you are also booked for moderations at trade fairs or in video clips. It’s a very special challenge when you don’t just have to work for a picture, but directly for a few hours, in a live situation with many people. Experienced models can do it! Exactly this should also be your way and your motivation, step by step to become a professional model.

      Our model agency helps you every step of the way, from the first professional test shoots with top photographers to build your model portfolio, for the first jobs, to travel support and as a constant contact for your career. We support you not only in your career, but also in school, because education always comes first!

      While you’re still in school (read more about school & modeling here), you’ll be doing fewer jobs at first, but that’s normal since you should be focusing on school. The degree will help you your whole life! You’ll need good written and spoken German, especially if you’re going to have speaking roles in commercials or moderations, your English should be good so that you can talk to international clients on a photo set, mathematical basics should be good so that no one can rip you off, sports are important so that you have a good figure later on… and so on! School is irreplaceable and therefore the be-all and end-all for you if you want to become a model. As soon as you’re done with school, you’re ready to go!

      Model Casting Super Size and Curvy

      Can I also come to a normal model casting? You are very welcome! Our castings usually take place every 3 months in Berlin, Cologne or Munich. Soon we will also have our first casting in Hamburg event, to a date you are also welcome as a plus size as a model.

      Is there a difference between live auditions and applying online?

      The odds are exactly the same! Only… with the online application you save yourself and the agency a lot of time. Nevertheless, live castings are always a lot of fun! That’s why we also organize our dates regularly, the procedure is always the same.

      You present yourself with a variety of models, usually there are 50, 100 or 200 models. Like in TV model castings, a 3 to 4-member jury sits in front of you. You introduce yourself briefly, do a short walk. If you have already worked as a model, you show your model book. Such a Go See usually takes 2 to 3 minutes. This doesn’t give you much time to introduce yourself, but enough for the jury to get an impression. As models are always judged on their looks first, the assessment is relatively quick, unlike, for example, influencers or experienced models, with whom you go straight into jobs where the fees are higher.

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

      Plus Size Models for online shops and product photography

      Fashion is sold through emotions and feelings, two aspects that you can emphasize particularly well with a model. Joie de vivre but also fun with the product that first-class posing with facial expressions and gestures, with every single product image. Especially in product photography for online shops, the experience of models plays a crucial role, as they create significantly more outfits in the hour or on the day. The more outfits the photographer can produce for the client, the more the model will be paid. A mutual win-win situation.

      The just mentioned joie de vivre can bring Curved Models at jobs excellent. Because they have a rather everyday lifestyle, at the same time pay a lot of attention to your skin, hair, figure but on the diet, they are absolute role models for many and partly in advertising much more authentic. Of course plus size models, although they are closer to the typical woman, do not displace the classic high fashion model, yet they are a very exciting addition for online shops, product photography but also lookbooks. You can also feel their energy on set, through their friendly nature, as well as the uncomplicated cooperation. Shootings for online shops are therefore always done with a lot of passion and experience. Look forward to the results!

      Curved models for commercials

      Just like in online shopping, curvy models are also becoming increasingly popular in commercials and movies. Whether it ends up being aired on TV or streamed on YouTube as an ad, curvy women are popping up in more and more video clips. This also gives you a more interesting and international look. If we put three different model types together in a commercial, for example the classic model, a teen model, a plus size model and an older model, we have a very nice overall picture that appeals to a large target group, through the different ages and characters.

      Shooting, commercials, our models are versatile!

      Advertising and friendly charisma

      Whether it is a photo shoot with a single model or a complex production with various protagonists but also extras who come to the set. Especially friendliness and a general charisma are very important when it comes to the photo shoot production. That is why it is so important for clients in the casting process not only to get to see different models, but also to know exactly the different and especially individual skills and knowledge. Because productions for advertising are not just about individuals. The sets quickly become more complicated. An example is family shoots where the couple in love, the child, the dog as well as the product have to harmonize at the perfect moment. Every time a person doesn’t fit the overall picture, for example because they wink at that moment, the photo can’t be used. That’s why it’s so important to have models with experience!

      Timing of productions

      Not only the appearance on the set is very important, also the punctuality and the preparation for the advertising production. After all, it is no longer just about photo shoots but often also about learning texts or roles.

      Model agency interview: outfit, casting & questions

      We have received many questions, especially about the topic, do I have to prepare for an interview in a modeling agency? Whether yes or no, how does such an interview generally proceed? Here we want to give you a brief insight into how your interview at a modeling agency will go.

      Preparation for the interview outfit and participants

      Many have already had interviews, for example for small jobs or even job offers. The preparation for an interview in a model agency is not as demanding as it is for a normal job. You don’t have to prepare any documents, you don’t need a resume or anything like that. All you need is the right outfit and of course to show up on time.

      Since you don’t have to prepare any documents, you can fully focus on your casting outfit.

      Whether young men or young women, the casting outfit is relatively similar for both. The absolute basis are always discreet outfits. After all, today is not about winning the prize for the Outfit of the Day, it’s about you, your facial expressions, your personality. Accordingly, you should go for plain black trousers, a simple black or white shirt, for women a top. The shoes should be just like shirt and pants discreet and not distract from you.

      Women have to pay attention to two special features, instead of sporty shoes you should always wear high heels. In addition, you should also have a bikini with you, so that your figure can be seen if necessary. In short, you need the following:

      • Plain clothes
      • Black pants
      • Black or white shirt or for ladies tops
      • Plain shoes, for women additionally high heels
      • Women additionally with bikini
      • If you have photos, bring them on your phone or tablet

      If you have already gained experience as a model, e.g. during your first photo shoots with photographers, you can of course bring your first photo series with you, or a selection of your best photos. Unlike in the past, you no longer need printed photos in a model folder, it is sufficient if you take your photos with you on your tablet or mobile phone.

      Many people visit a big city for the first time during their first interview at a modeling agency. So that nothing can go wrong, you should still write down the following data in your mobile phone, so that you have everything important with you in any case:

      • Exact address of the model agency
      • Telephone number of the model agency
      • If possible, phone number of your contact person

      Here is another tip from us as management! If possible, don’t be there 5 minutes before the appointment, but don’t be in the office 30 minutes before either. Ideally you should always be on time, that means two or three minutes before the job or your first casting starts. But it is important that you are already there beforehand. Ideally at least half an hour before, the rest of the time you can spend with a coffee or a delicious smoothie in a café.

      Punctuality and a smile

      Punctuality is very important, as already mentioned, you should always be on time. So don’t be there an hour early, but also not 10 minutes. 2 or 3 minutes before the casting starts, you should be there!

      Therefore, plan your journey carefully in advance so that nothing can go wrong. Because if the appointment goes well, this is your ticket to life as a model in a large and reputable agency.

      Here’s a little tip from our management! Always enter the agency, the office or the room with a smile. Smiling is often already half the battle, because as a model it is very often about advertising, that is sales and emotions. In addition, sympathy always plays a role in every job interview. You should use this for you, not only at the first casting in your model agency, also when you are later at castings in front of customers, for fashion shows, commercials or online shops.

      Interview and contents

      The actual interview usually lasts between 20 minutes and an hour. Depending on how far you are already, that is, whether you are still a student and have 2 years of school ahead of you, or whether you are already ready to travel, so that you could also work in the big cities like London, New York but also Hong Kong.

      In the interview, it is for the agency or the model agency first of all to find out whether you are really 100% behind what you want to do. Because if the model agency later sends you to big and international clients, it can not depend on luck! That’s why you don’t start as a model with the big campaigns, but with small jobs.

      Many have the dream of modeling, cover shoot for Vogue, Elle or Harpers Bazaar. But they forget that it is a long way. All the supermodels in the world have worked for years to make their breakthrough at some point. That’s why as a model you have to be patient for yourself and your career.

      Of course, mum and dad will also be there when it comes to the first interview, for example if you are only 15, 16 or 17 years old. Because your parents will always be a big part of your life, they will also be intensively involved in the planning from the beginning.

      These topics and much more will be discussed during the first interview at your modeling agency.

      Admission to the model agency and waiting time

      The decision whether you will be accepted in the model agency or not, you usually do not get in the interview. Mostly, a few Polaroids are made of you, which are quick photos with the mobile phone or with the camera. In addition, one or the other walk video is made, in which you show what you could present at a fashion show. Subsequently, the respective model agency discusses in the team. This often happens not on the same evening but perhaps at the end of the week.

      Another first reality check! Because even if you later go to the big client casting or are proposed for jobs, you often have to wait for the decision. If 20 models are invited to a casting and there is only one job, you will also often have to deal with rejections. Don’t hang your head! Nobody becomes a star overnight.

      This is what prospective models need to bring with them: The somewhat different guideline – characteristics, posing, behavior on the set & Co.

      The dream of the model job is no longer only in the head of young girls. Likewise, many young men aspire to the job profile of the model, which promises glamor, glamour and the appearance on famous fashion magazines. In most guides to the job description of the model are requirements, such as the height, weight and certain dimensions. However, the fact that you also have to bring numerous character traits to this profession is often not mentioned. Because only those who can show strength of character can successfully perform the tough job of modeling for many years. Before you submit your application, it is important to take a closer look at yourself. Are you ready for the job of a model? Can you face the challenges and overcome all the hurdles?

      Focus on resilience and ambition

      At the beginning of their career, many models still lack sufficient experience. Therefore, it can come to surprises during shootings, when all participants are stressed and you get to feel this. Your personal resilience is the focus. You have to be able to deal with the situation and even despite a bad mood go through a suitable shoot.
      This requires a lot of ambition. This drives you to keep going and to face the challenges. You learn to deal with challenges and to interpret situations in your favor. This results in an increasing ability to change over time.

      Mutability: multiple poses, confident facial expressions & co.

      The fact that models have to be versatile can be explained by the online fashion shop Modivo. Here you can find clothes for men, women and children. Every style is represented, from business appearance to casual styling. The model must convince with a suitable pose, as well as an appealing appearance and set the garment particularly in scene. One minute you are shooting in a serious business outfit. This requires a self-confident mine and a secure stand. In the other minute you present a sensual dress, whose optics desires a lot of sensuality.

      Video: Photo shoots – behavior on the set and posing tips

      Classic poses. Modern Poses. Sporty poses and extravagant poses. A good model knows how to put his body in front of the camera. Also important: the right facial expression. As always, practice makes perfect. Important tips about posing & Co. can be found here in the video of Model Guru Lutz.

      Enthusiasm as the key to success

      As the variety of goods of Modivo shows, models always have to put themselves in new clothes. Likewise, models who not only work for fashion agencies, but also lend their face to various cosmetics, as well as products, must constantly promote new products with their best side. It is therefore important that you are able to convince yourself of a product or garment quickly as well as easily. After all, this has an immense effect on your presentation style, as well as your charisma.

      Convince and inspire you quickly with the product

      Self-confidence and uniqueness á la Cara Delevingne

      Currently, the fashion industry is going through a strong change. More and more companies are looking for models who stand out because of their self-confidence. This is shown by the staging of their peculiarities. The best example of this is Cara Delevingne, who immediately catches the eye with her striking eyebrows. The model puts her eyebrows in the focus of the photos. The combination of staging flaws and self-confidence can be the key to success. Nowadays, the fashion industry is increasingly under the motto:

      “Being different is beautiful!”

      In particular, models with gaps between their teeth, slightly overweight, different skin color (vitiligo) and the like receive attention. The designers of today recognize, a lasting impression can be created.

      Examples of unique models and their trademarks:

      • Cara Delevingne: striking eyebrows
      • Winnie Harlow: Vitiligo
      • Diandra Forrest: Albinism
      • Lauren Hutton: Tooth Gap

      Video: Becoming a model with a gap in her teeth, curly hair and other “flaws”

      What was once considered a flaw in the fashion industry is now seen with pleasure. Cara Delevingne’s bushy eyebrows, for example, have been seen in numerous campaigns and regularly on catwalks around the world. The American mannequin Winni Harlow graces the covers of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle despite or because of her vitiligo. Model Guru Lutz tells you how you too can stand out from the other models with your uniqueness and make it in the world of runways and photo shoots.

      Critical faculties vs. strong self-confidence: learning as well as resisting

      To be successful as a model, you should meet the wishes of the customer. This will only succeed if you work well with photographers, make-up artists, as well as the direct customers. You should be able to take criticism. The fact that this criticism is usually not directed against you as a person, but as a representation of the brand or product, must be made conscious. After all, everyone on set is trying to achieve the best possible result for the client and their campaign. Nevertheless, you should have enough self-confidence to not expose yourself to criticism too strongly or permanently.

      Never take criticism on the set personally

      After all, even models have a bad day once in a while, when it’s hard to see the criticism as a constructive helper. However, the criticism must not be seen as a personal attack. You must not cave in or let it make you feel insecure. After each comment, make a proud and confident appearance and put the advice you received into practice.

      Modeling agency Wikipedia: Definition and description

      What does Wikipedia actually say about model agencies? According to the official description (according to Wikipedia “model agency”), a model agency “acts as a service provider between models and their clients (e.g. photographers, advertising agencies, publishers, fashion designers), whereby so-called model scouts try to discover new models and bookers handle customer inquiries and coordinate appointments with the models, and yet other employees (as in other companies) are responsible, among other things, for advertising, public relations and concluding contracts for the models”.

      Becoming a model – modeling between school, studies, friends and family

      Modeling between school, college, friends and family – If you’re a regular reader of our modeling blog, you may be just starting out and thinking about becoming a model. As a model, you’re always caught between your modeling career and your school or studies. Many also ask themselves the question, “will I model forever”? Let’s imagine how your next few years will go if the modeling job works out for you. You will travel and be on the road a lot throughout the year. You will see your friends and family less. You’ll meet a lot of new people. You will see less of your home. But you will get to know new countries and cultures while modeling abroad.

      Most importantly, you can’t just focus on yourself: Friends, family and your social environment are important. If you really want to be a model, you should first finish school in peace and quiet and prepare well during the time, do test shoots, first jobs and write good grades.

      After school: study or international career?

      Here the ways for models in the national and international market separate. If you want to work as a model mainly in the national market, it makes sense to do something for yourself parallel to modeling. Many start their studies and do their bachelor’s or master’s degree at the same time. This way you are also covered for the case, for the future in any case and also always for the case that something goes wrong in your modeling career, for example due to an accident. As sad as it is.

      As a model in the national market, you can always do something for your academic education at the same time. Since you have the chance, you should focus on both goals so that you don’t get lost in a dream alone at some point. There are various situations in which models drop out or drop out. Often nobody knows what the years will bring. Some change their career because they want “more” than just being a “mannequin”. Many models later try their hand at acting or switch to the media industry. In order for the change to work well for you, you should not disregard the academic and professional education on your way.

      Combining an international career and studies

      If you want to go the international way as a model, you should consider together with your agency and your parents whether it is worth it to focus only on your career for a few years. Because if you make it in the international business, the doors are already open to you at a young age. The fees are much higher, because media are later spread internationally, not only nationally. But for that you need absolute attention and flexible time management. The best way to do that is to take a year or two and focus completely on your international modeling career. The beauty of modeling. If you want it, you can quit at any time. If you make it, you’re living the dream of many.

      The most important thing for me as a model agent is: Always talk to your family, friends and be diligent in school. After that you can decide for yourself.

      Family & friends should be included in your decision

      For new, young models, it is especially important to talk to their family. Even before you start your dream of modeling and apply to model agencies, you should talk freely with your parents or guardians. As a model, you will quickly have a lot of responsibility with photo shoots, big productions and campaigns. Mutual trust is an absolute requirement for models. Your parents or guardians want to protect you and have valuable life experience that you have yet to gain.

      As models, it is always important for you to get support from your social environment. From your family and from your friends. Both are important pillars that help you, whether you are successful or not, always find a home. People on whom you can rely one hundred percent. If you talk early enough about your wishes and goals, you will always find a way to combine good grades and modeling, even during school. I have accompanied many models who have already started their first tests and jobs two or three years before graduation. By the time they finish school, these models are already very professional and experienced. So if you as a model talk early enough with your social environment, they can adjust to it and find the best way together with you.

      Students should also make sure that they write good grades even before their career starts.

      Especially in good agencies, care is taken to ensure that school performance does not suffer as a result of the new job. School always comes first! It is extremely important for every model agent to pay attention to the well-being of young models. Getting good grades in school and performing well is your first goal as a model. Another tip: Good grades also make it easier to get exemptions from school.

      Find your perfect model agency – Summary

      Recognize reputable modeling agencies:

      • Reputable customers (for example, well-known brands through advertising)
      • Serious models (appearance, measurements)
      • Fixed admission criteria
      • Serious website
      • Transparency regarding the agency team (for example through website)

      Agency is not reputable if:

      • No/ non-transparent website (no mention of agency headquarters or agency team)
      • Simple agency admission without prerequisites and interview
      • No cooperation with serious customers
      • Admission fees are required

      You can find out more about modeling applications in this article.

      Model Agency Beginners

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

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

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

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

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

      Recording and development for Beginners

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

      Construction of the Model folder

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

      //// Insert link to model folder

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

      Your first Jobs

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

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

      Become a Model Frankfurt: Agency, Jobs and Travel – Questions and Answers

      Frankfurter Models – Today we wanted to give all young young models in Frankfurt am Main a little insight into the work of a model agency in Frankfurt. Did you know that most jobs don’t take place in Frankfurt? But let’s start with the basic questions that arise about models. Becoming a model is quite demanding, because you already start at school. So you have to concentrate not only on good grades, but also on keeping your requirements and improving yourself.

      Become a model in Frankfurt Main: How it works

      Basically these 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 model agency, we recommend that you concentrate fully on school before you start.

      Of course there are not only teenagers and teen models in the model industry, but also models with 20, 30 or even 60 years, so-called Best Agers. We also have tips for you!

      Full concentration on school

      Good grades and a good basic education will help you a lot later in your job. After all, the better you get, the more flights you have to make, the more punctual you have to get to hotels in new cities where 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 in the breaks, there are small small talks. If you then have a Magazine Shooting and can’t communicate off-set with the others who have usually seen a lot of the world, you shine less than with good general knowledge. But the more you get close to the end of your school days, the more often you will get booking requests from your model agency or cities outside Frankfurt. In addition, there are often travel days, so you are on the road for two or three days. The better your grades are, the more likely your school is to give you this freedom.

      Legal requirements and labour law

      The second important point in the minimum age of 15 years are the labour laws and regulations that exist in Germany. With 15 years you may already work substantially more freely, under 15 years you need special permissions, e.g. from the youth welfare department in addition, 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 over 16 years. Therefore international model agencies focus on models with 15, 16 years.

      International jobs and customers

      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 mostly even 60 days. The only time students really have time for such a long stay, including the trip, is during the summer holidays. In the summer holidays are generally rest periods, not only in Germany but also abroad. The families go on holiday and there is less production. Of course, there are fewer jobs for models. Some agencies, in Paris or also in Milan even close the agency completely for one or two weeks during this time. The high season for such a stay is then again September to December and afterwards from February to July.

      In which cities are there the most jobs for models?

      If you want to start your career from Frankfurt, your first focus will be on Germany and the larger cities in your area. This mainly includes 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 center. The two factor plays the situation of the city, so there is e.g. a clear Top 10 in Germany. You can get most jobs as a model in Berlin and Hamburg. Especially in Berlin many international productions take place, in Hamburg there are many media agencies and therefore also many offers for models. Then come Munich, Cologne and just after that Frankfurt am Main, Hanover and Düsseldorf.

      Alternative for Frankfurt Models: Cologne, Berlin and Frankfurt

      In Frankfurt am Main, the view in the direction of Cologne and Düsseldorf is definitely the most worthwhile. 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 in the Frankfurt city centre for fashion designers 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 the fashion on your body. Such a thing is called Fitting Model. Also in Frankfurt you will do 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 of all 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 varied, the higher the chances are that customers will book you for jobs in Frankfurt.

      With increasing experience, productions also increase in size. If you are first-class, you will also make it into 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 alone in the spot and a whole production team behind it.

      How do I apply in a model agency in Frankfurt?

      For your application in Frankfurt you don’t need much, 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, at the application, simple mobile phone photos are enough for us as an agency.

      It is important that you can be seen in daylight. You should wear neither makeup nor styling, so that nothing distracts from you as a person. Because naturalness is also the most important thing for customers later on. When you later negotiate with customers or send the 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.

      Read more about this topic here: Model Polaroids.

      Do’s and Dont’s for Frankfurt Models

      If you really want to become a model, you should avoid any unnatural influences beforehand. This includes simple gel nails but also going to the solarium, hair extensions, lips injections, do without everything! Because you are as beautiful as you are!

      Application in a model agency

      In the following you simply send your picture material to Modelagentur, some data as well as your contact, your name, place of residence but also the most important measurements as well as your body and clothing size. If a model agency is interested in you, they will get back to you as soon as possible, most likely within five days. So the process won’t take that long, if you don’t get any feedback from the model agencies, the look won’t suit you. Don’t ask any questions, because every model agency has only limited capacities and wants to take care of the models completely. If you are in an agency tomorrow, you would want full attention. If you don’t fit, you should accept this and try your luck in another agency.

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

      The body size plays a decisive role, even if there is no completely uniform scale of measurements, the fashion world in particular focuses on a minimum body size of 175cm for women. You shouldn’t be bigger than 181cm either. This is the perfect size for pre-cut garments but also for fashion shows in Frankfurt. Meanwhile you should be at least 186 cm tall and maximum 190 cm in your application as men’s model. So you fit perfectly to the female cast, even if they wear high heels. It is important that you are not too much trained as a man, you should have a defined body, not be a muscle package.

      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, but statistically it will be less. But if you still make an effort, show full commitment, who knows! You can also be more trained as a man, e.g. if you want to become a sportsman or Fitness Model. In an international agency like ours, however, you should normally meet the requirements.

      Tip! Here you can find good Gyms in Frankfurt

      The clothing size for women should be between 32 and 36. For Curvy Models, the sizes usually start at 42. For men, the ideal size at the beginning of a career is 48 to 52. If you want to become even more of a minimum size, check out the requirements for models here.

      • Women
        Body size for Fashion: 176 – 180cm / International
        Body size for advertising: 172 – 181cm / Germany
        Slim figure, usually long hair
      • Men
        Body size for Fashion: 186 – 190cm / International
        Body size for advertising: 184 – 194cm / Germany
        Slim or slightly sporty figure

      What happens after my agency recording in Frankfurt am Main?

      The following steps are very different from your age or the time you are going to spend with the school. For example, if you still have two years of school ahead of you, the first two years will focus on building your Modelbook and getting it ready for the national and international market. Your agency will arrange appointments with good photographers to help you with your portfolio. It is important for you always to pay attention to the quality, it is better to have few good photos than a mass of halfway good pictures. Because at the latest when you are in competition as a model, e.g. for jobs in other cities like Hamburg or Berlin, you need a strong portfolio where the customer can see with a few moments how good you are.

      After the first year, the first jobs start slowly, it takes a while, because you first have to build up a model book and you have to have good performance in school, so that you get free, most productions, almost all of them, are during the week. If there’s one more day of travel and one day for the return journey, plus the booking is for 2 days, you’re quickly out for a week. Therefore you will work even less during school time and do smaller jobs as well as the previously mentioned showrooms in Frankfurt city centre or for Frankfurt online shops or social media channels like Instagram photo shootings.

      If you’re already at the end of your school days at the agency, it’s sometimes a matter of placement abroad. As a model it should go on and on for you, from Frankfurt to Berlin, from Berlin to London Fashion Week and from London to Milan, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo. That’s exactly the plan of an international model agency and the reason why you’re playing in the professional league here. This requires special commitment, self-interest and of course a constant will to improve yourself. The job of a model is very demanding!

      3 Tips for Business Registration – Become a Model under 18?

      You want to become a model and register your own business at the age of 14, 15 or 16? In the big article on the topic of registering a business (small business) for models, we already took a detailed look at the registration and taxation of jobs. Today we’re going to give you a few more tips if you’re still underage yourself! As a model you have to register as a self-employed person because the job is not a regular activity. You are not employed by modeling agencies in the traditional sense and are therefore self-employed. Registering a business is not as easy for teenagers and a bit more complex than for adult models aged 18 or over. We show you the most important steps if you want to earn money as a model in Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Munich or Berlin. You can find more tips here: Become a Model.

      Informal letter to the district court with info about the model job

      First, you send an informal letter to the district court. Here you describe what you want to do and how many hours per day you will work and how much money you want to earn. In addition, you need the permission of your parents or legal guardians with signature. As a model you will not work every day, especially if you are young and still in school. Therefore, it is better to give a general number of hours per month. If you do two jobs a month, that’s about 12-16 hours. Earnings vary depending on the job. Showrooms pay less, but they are not connected with media. You only present fashion to a small group of customers or buyers. With campaigns, however, you earn a lot of money quickly. That’s why you should read the paragraph about maximum profit at the end, because if you earn too much, your child benefit can be cancelled.

      Guardianship court and legal capacity

      As a rule, you will receive an answer within one to two weeks and will be referred to the guardianship court, which will then also carry out a review of your full legal capacity. Here it is checked whether you are up to the job and whether you can be granted full legal capacity. Therefore, it is worthwhile to write good grades in school, which shows that you are motivated and perform well. This way you can be expected to do a “demanding” job. You can also ask questions about the trade and registration here at any time.

      Business registration for model jobs

      With permission from the guardianship court, you can now go to your local office and register your business. A tip: Register here as a small business owner. When you register, take all the important information and papers with you. You can read about how this works here in the Model Blog or in the article Small Business for Models. Next you will get your tax number. This can take a little longer, sometimes up to two months, depending on the capacity of the tax office. At the end, another very important topic for you: child benefit.

      Profit, income and child benefit

      The figures may differ slightly, depending on the current status of the law. Roughly, however, you can remember that you only have a certain tax-free amount. You should keep to this, because more profit has consequences for you. With something over 7000.00 euros in the year (approx. 7180.00 euros) you ran out your requirement on child benefit. In addition, you would come from about 7400.00 euros a year in the taxation. That means, you have to pay a part of the further, surplus profit as income tax to the state. In addition, you have to insure yourself against illness.

      Tip: Take your own measurements

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

      Too small, too big, too sporty?

      For high fashion and haute couture there are clear guidelines for models, especially for new faces. If you deviate from the measurements, you still have many opportunities in the commercial field. Commercial deals with everything that is “promotional”, from online shops to TV and YouTube videos.

      When am I a Curvy Model?

      Curvy models in women with a clothing size that lies between 42 and 44. The cup size is also much larger and can definitely go up to a G cup. Curvy models are very popular, just like plus size models, as they are most appealing to the measurements of an average woman. The average woman in Europe has a clothing size of 44, which means that even Curvy Models are only in the general average with an average clothing size of 42 to 44. Also as a Curvy Model we are very happy about your application in our model agency.

      Tip: Take your own photos (Polaroids)

      Poses and outfits, do you need that? No! We want to see you 100% natural! This is how you make your perfect model polaroids yourself. The agency needs the following pictures of you:

      • A full body picture from the front (photographed frontally)
      • A full body picture from the side
      • A full body picture from behind (because of the hair length)
      • A photo of your face (frontal)
      • A photo of your profile
