Would you like to be a model? Then get ready because it’s a profession terribly demanding, in which the preparation is everything. And we do not say it: say what the professionals with whom we have talked and that tell us the important thing is the training from the start, trying to absorb everything what you teach and can thus take advantage of all the opportunities that will be presenting you. Interested?
The first key step: If you want to be the first model is comment it with your family, and that you seek agencies with experience, that you provide credibility. That can be seen by checking the time carrying on active, and talking to people who have worked with them to ensure that they recommend them you or not.
In order to enter a modeling agency should take the following steps. The first and main, request a personal interview. If they give you confidence get advice to start building your career as a model. And is that a model is born, but is also.
To learn all the ins and outs of this world, have put us in contact with Nerea Moreno, a known photographer of fashion, responsible agency model Thinking in Bilbao, who we answered a lot of questions and clarified many doubts.
A model was born, but also makes it
Nerea – that besides being the fashion in the agency responsible for, is also fashion photographer -has ensured us that work with a model that already reach a formed shooting, to work with someone who starts in the profession and unknown changes and facilitates the result completely. To get the best out of the model or the model it is important that they have learned before to pose. In the scene is said there to master at least one fifty poses.
Asked if his agency accepted books made by photographers outside the company, Nerea us answer should be that the ad are formed by photographs by various photographers, showing different profiles in I am a student y Foreign.
The models are taught to create its own style to become references and create trends
Laughingly told us that a successful comparison would be that of football: one thing is that you like and another very different is knowing how to play. So just by having a certain physical conditions not be expected go up to a walkway and Ponte a parade. “Nobody goes to Cibeles to learn, but it will be learned”, she said verand beious.
Also explained us that in Thinking they are committed by the training with one year courses long courses of three months in summer, o Masters class taught by photographers, stylists, make-up artists and choreographers.
In Image Consulting they teach, for example, to not succumb to the trends, but create your own style with which most favours you, creating a personal style to be in a reference y create trend.
What training need to be model
Thinking in addition to be a modeling agency is also one school where they are taught the future models to pose, a Parade by a footbridge, Image Consulting, Protocol in the social sphere and company, posed photo, in addition to Yoga, body expression and nutrition. Something fundamental to be healthy and active. The price of this course is 125 euros of registration, and then 10 installments of 135 euro.
A training not only useful for fashion or advertising but for the working life in general, and one improves staff in all the senses because it teaches the students values such as punctuality, responsibility, availability or complicity that are the keys so that a model is always the most required.
At the end of this course, managers of the school call a casting of national agencies that they tend to work together so that they can sign some of their models who want to take the step to national or international.
Punctuality, responsibility and availability, keys to success
As I explained at the beginning, Thinking is in Bilbao. Is directed by Isabel wheel. A professional with over 30 years of experience in the field of the image, fashion and communication. Great professionals have emerged out of their quarry of training and being in the provinces is not a handicap to achieve success and notoriety. “From the provinces also arise great professionals and tops as” Jon Kortajarena from Bilbao, or Ion Gonzalez from Bergara – who we send to a casting for the SMS television series, and already stayed in Madrid for ever, having now become a great professional”.
If you are a minor and want to be a model, you need all the security
To be able to work as a model There is expected to be of legal age: You can ask a special permission that allows you to work less. These permissions are requested in the Department of employment and social policies According to the communities and should be endorsed by the parental consent.
To confirm it we also got in touch with the Attorney Santiago Pérez Argüelles Eoth and lawyers – a law firm specialized in image of the model law, contracts with agencies and fiscal issues related to this profession-, who confirmed us that according to the Statute of workers the minimum age to work in Spain are the 16 years, Although there are special cases and situations that have an own regularization.
“There is a specific regulation for” shows. In this case the parents of children under 16 years should request an special authorization that will be granted when they try to work not considered dangerous or harmful for human and physical training of the minor (those covered by the regime of artists). If you have sufficient judgment, the minor must also give its consent”.
The work of the Scouter to enter the profession of model
“It is clear that if a booker or scouter of the Agency sees you on the street and think you have potential to be a model you will to” address Since the prudence to not pass up the opportunity. It is normal that you encounter, you give your job card and you invite close one interview with your parents in the Agency if it is minor,”continued explaining Nerea.
The camera sees what the eye does not see
“If you are a minor, your parents will have to sign a document giving your image rights”.
The “flair” of the bookers in the fashion world
Nerea commented that the bookers tend to have very good eye for knowing what young people going to work. However, he also added that “the aim of” the camera sees what the eye does not see, and there are very photogenic girls.” There are models that work much better advertising parading down a catwalk. A model of 1.68 or 1.70 cm tall can work much or more than a catwalk model, working in advertising or television. “They are women with careers in the long run, because at age 30 can play the role of an Executive, mother, etc. for hundreds of campaigns”.
The profession of model tends to be compatible with studies and it is very usual to complement it with other works. “The models working in provinces hard may live only of this profession. They used it more as a complement to their studies or their work. But there are many who then give the way to national agencies”.
When a brand or an advertising agency looking for a model with a specific profile they communicate it to agencies that they send you a portfolio with a selection of their represented that best fits the profile, or even they themselves who make a pre-selection. Nerea assured us that every day less face-to-face castings are made and that almost everyone now works with the Books Online and with “polas” recent (Polaroids).
How much earn a model at the beginning?
The question of if used to advance agencies payment of work performed by the models until the girls started to make money, Nerea explained that although the law marks that jobs must be paid within 60 days, the truth is that the majority of customers they pay to 90 days. So often the agencies forced to advance the amounts of works After having discounted their Commission that is usually almost always of a 20%.
To avoid mistakes lawyers recommended models point the work carried out in an Agenda with agreed rates
He also explained that when the models are transferred to a national or international agency is normal overtake them if they need it, some 50 euros per day for expenses. When an agency transfers a model to other national agency the Commission of 20% is divided equally between the two agencies.
Not everything is bad news: typically, when a mark hires a model be the own brand which run costs taxis, airplanes and hotels.
We asked the lawyer if the models could be ordered a summary or les Theandsglosasen your bills (expenses incurred with the Agency), to which we replied: “certainly is not only that they can but they must ask for it (it is called in the scene” a statement), and who ask all the appropriate explanations on movements that appear written. At the beginning, I recommend to all that aim in a Agenda the works they do with who make them, for who make them, and the rates “that have commented it, so that thus errors never occur”.
Also ask if the models, working as autonomous, they had to pay their monthly fee. Pérez Argüelles, the lawyer who we consulted, explained to us that it had to distinguish two things: be autonomous effect of Treasury requiring periodic statements from VAT and PERSONAL INCOME TAX. And then was the obligation to be given on Social Security in the special scheme for self-employed workers. That VAT had to be declared to date of issuance of the invoice, and the income tax could declare when the work will be charged.
First steps how model: do you need?
When asked why many models began working in Japan, Nerea answered us that there are occasions in which amateur models started his career professionals in markets where there is lot of work such as Japan and China.
But to be able to open path in those countries must be perfectly fluent in English, and have much working capacity and be disciplined. The advantage is that as you work hard, the models often come back with a good book, and jobs are paid nothing more be done and not 90 days.
Social networks: can they help you to be a model?
Asked if it was good that the models are show active in social networks, Nerea did not explain that the models should know the importance of sharing its image on social networks and learn to make good use of it.
But watch out for the photos that are uploaded as certain types may harm you or position yourself incorrectly.
You also have to reckon with the possibility of signing agreements with brands to be one of the first in unveil an advertising campaign through your account Instagram. Other income you should not dismiss.
“I want to be a model”: recapitulate for
The bookers are often exercise of Road companions in the career of a model but disloyalty is also visible in this profession. Having contributed to the development of a model and to then drop you down the road is comparable with cases very media of the football world: you prepare someone in your quarry and then change of equipment. But you learn to manage that frustration, and we know that life is a road and…
The important thing when it comes to getting your dream is to have a passion and dedication. Of all our experts have told us, especially Isabel and Nerea through Thinking, should stay with the important thing are these three pillars: training, the vocation and the talent.
Probably in these three things is where lies the key to success.
