Important Notice For Aspiring Models
What it takes
A career in modelling can offer fantastic opportunities to travel the world, meet diverse & interesting people and generate a good income. But before starting out, it’s important to be aware that today modelling is a highly competitive industry where, however good your look, success can only be achieved with certain vital ingredients: dedication, a professional approach, a good agent and a bit of luck. Models must work hard to look their best – a healthy diet, regular exercise and general TLC are all essential. What you wear is also important. But looking great is only half the job. Being professional is a must. This means turning up on time, having a positive attitude and generally getting along with everyone at the casting or on the shoot. If you can do all this, your chances of a good career will increase enormously. Remember that competition for work is fierce and standards today are higher than ever. If all this seems daunting, don’t forget that the agency is here to give advice and guidance on all aspects of our models’ careers, including healthy eating, personal care, health & safety & managing your finances.
If you are under the age of 18, parental consent is required before we offer you a modelling contract. It is important that school studies are not affected in the course of your modelling career. It is vital to have clear communication between parents and the agency to keep a good balance between school and work.
