Why Models Need an Agency
The internet has opened up many doors for models. Online agencies allow models to connect with potential employers and book jobs quickly and easily. But there are some pitfalls to avoid when choosing an agent or manager.
Your Protection and Safety
A professional modeling agency will screen potential clients and ask them the correct questions to be certain they are the best type for the agency and for yourself. They will also have longstanding relationships with many of their clients and will be able know what makes each client tick. They will be able to confirm your safety and protection while working in the industry and will be able to ensure that you are happy with your assignments.
The agency will be able to help you find the right opportunities and will be able to offer advice about how to prepare for those shoots and how to deal with situations that arise during shoots. This includes being able to tell you whether or not the shoot is safe for you and if it is safe for you to travel to the location. When you are traveling to a job, the agency will be able to advise you on what precautions you must take and what to avoid doing.
Building Your Personal Brand
Models have become much more than just living coat hangers or silent victims of fashion. Today models are brands. And like every other brand, it takes work. In fact, some say building a successful brand is even harder today because there are so many different platforms where you can reach potential customers. As a model, you must be able to navigate each one of those platforms effectively. You must be able to use social media to build your personal brand, interact with fans, and market yourself to clients. You must be able stand out among thousands of other models vying for the same jobs. You must be able speak intelligently about your career and what makes you unique. You must be able understand how to handle the media and how to promote yourself. All of these things take skill and practice. But most importantly, you must be willing to put in the hard work necessary to succeed.
Get Paid What You Deserve – Fair Price
Models are often hired based on the fact that they’re “amateur,” meaning they don’t have experience working with brands. This means that many agencies simply ignore the fact that the model might not understand how much he or she should be charging.
For example, let’s say a client hires a model to shoot a fashion editorial spread. The client tells the model that the photo shoot will include one outfit per day over five days. When it’s done, the client pays a fixed amount for each outfit.
The problem here is that the model didn’t realize that the client was asking him or her to wear multiple outfits every day. If the model had been aware of the request, he or she could have negotiated a higher rate for the job.
A professional agency knows exactly what the market value for a particular type of photography is and will make sure that the model gets paid accordingly.
