To start with us, no..But! Every model will need a professional portfolio to market themselves as a model into paid work, this separates you from the serious and the unserious model. Clients take you seriously and want to pay you good money. It is your CV and not just a collection of pretty images. Modelling portfolios show ability and versatility, and will show your full potential as a model to all clients. Your clients will hire you depending on your modelling portfolio, therefore the better your portfolio the higher chance of landing the big jobs and finding work. - If you don't have a portfolio we can help you develop a professional one.
Every model will need to pay for their portfolio, regardless of what you may have heard, you will have to invest in yourself portfolio. Top fashion agencies such as Storm will invest and build portfolios for their models and will take a large figure from their first pay, however not every model is lucky to sign to a top fashion agency as they have very strict requirements. Sometimes in life you just have to start being serious about your goals and ambition. Makeup artists buy their own makeup kits and photographers buy their own equipment..so the ball is in your court if you want to invest in yourself. We can help you and keep costs low for you.
No agency can or will guarantee work. Once or if you are signed to an agency it is up to the client’s requirements on what they need for you to be selected for particular jobs. Remember, since agencies earn a certain percentage out of your earnings for work, they will only decide to take you on their books if they strongly believe that they can successfully place you in jobs, however no agency will guarantee work.
Rates for models varies and depends from client to client. some rates can be hourly or daily. Once you are signed with us or a agency you should have a very clear understanding of all rates including the percentage your agent will take from your earning, you can refer back to your contract to keep track of your earnings.
Modelling can involve some traveling and this does depend on the location of shoots and castings for you to attend. Most travel expenses are paid for and covered by the client.
Agencies will represent you and find work; it is up to you to decide which castings and shoots you would like to attend. Do not be afraid to say something so that everyone knows the situation before any issues popup. If you have other obligations, such as a sick mother or you are in full time education your we or any agency will be aware and would only call you at the weekends and holidays so your studies are not interrupted. You could always discussing your availability.
No. There are no upfront registration fees.
The world is more connected than ever, people are now not so strict on things.

This again depends on what the clients are looking for. There are many stories where models start picking up jobs from the moment they sign up or 3 months after they sign up. This can also depend on new trends, new fashions, and new companies. Ultimately you tend to get out what you put in, so be proactive. Let people know they can book you from our site, let everybody on your social networking sites know where to find you, this can be very productive to your progress. Don't become a model that just sits and waits for her dream to land on her lap all the time. Chase the dream.
