How much can I expect to earn as a model?

This all depends on the type of work, and of course how determined you are.  Everyone has to start somewhere. If it's exciting, glamorous or you are becoming mildly famous we can negotiate a more substantial payment. The entire process depends on you showing the level of commitment and professionalism required in each assignment to push yourself into higher earnings with each task you take.

♦How long does it usually take before I find work?

The time it usually takes to find work depends on the demand we are receiving from clients. It could take a couple of days if a client sees your photos and immediately likes you or it could take a few weeks.

Can you guarantee that I will get a job? 

It is the client who makes the final decision whether or not the model is booked, so we cannot guarantee you will get work. However, our business is based around earning commission from the assignments you undertake so it is in our best interests to find you work.

Can I turn work down?

Once a client has chosen you, we will make contact to agree a day, time, date, location and fee; you always have the choice to say no if you are busy or unavailable. We know that modeling may just be a part time hobby and you could have other full time commitments such as work or family so if an assignment is inconvenient, simply tell us. We could also try to rearrange it for you.

What if I don't live in the same area as the modeling job?

An additional fee for travel could be agreed upon as part of the discussion before the assignment, where the distance is over 20 miles. We must stress that the issue of travel fees must be discussed before any assignment is agreed.

What if I don’t live in the same city as your agency?

That's ok. Our models live all over the world. That is the nature of our business. Our models travel constantly and we are used to working under these conditions.

 Could modeling be a full time job?

Modeling today is very competitive and work can be irregular so most of our models have 'normal' day jobs to support themselves, However with enough commitment there is no reason why modeling could not become your career.

I have just completed an assignment, whom do I speak to?

Once you have completed an assignment, contact the person (your agent) who gave you the assignment. They will be eager to hear from you.
