Collaborating or working for a modeling agency for every passionate about modeling is a success if you are not famous or familiar enough with a part of followers or audience. What it takes you to collaborate or work with a modeling agency? Working by yourself in this kind of business is way too hard to join the modeling agency because you have to get contacts with people in this field and of course it will be difficult to find the one you need and which is really interested in you. From the other part, there are modeling agencies that can help you reach popularity and fame if we can call so faster than you can do on your own. This happens because they have years and years working on this and the experience overall lands to success. But not all agencies are the same. There “are scammers” because they profit from you and the real ones. What it takes us to know if this is the real and the chosen one for us? We have made our own research and concluded on these more important questions that every model has do ask and get the proper information for him/herself before joining a modeling agency.
- Are you a proper modeling agency?: In the first sight it may seem a vulgar and stupid question but let me remind you some cases why this question must be asked. There are some modeling companies that are not agencies and this happens because modeling companies don’t want the hard work and contacting people in order to find the models work being said it’s stressful and such a heavy work to do. They can profit from models by selling products before they even sign up with models and you must be very careful with this. You must ask them if they are connected directly with clients or by books models job? For example, Do you have booking agents? And after the first question then ask How many? This will conclude on some of your answers.
- The duration and operation of your modeling agency in this business?: Of course, this is an important question because as we mentioned earlier there are a lot of scam companies that profit from models in general, and if want to be clarified for this question you will receive an answer that the more years they have been in business the better for you it is and the better for the agency is. It shows how well it has been operating in this field and how famous it is.
- Modeling License: Operating in this business as a modeling agency must definitely have a license. It shows that it legal and requires decent owners to be very respectful with models and other partners in this but overall with the government. You will receive a surety that you will be employed and getting paid in a regular way depending on your contract that you will sign with them.
- Asking for a blank copy of your contract: Happens that some people are not regular with their modeling agency for example they are regular with government, paying taxes, and all this stuff but when it comes to the contract with models they can manipulate them and can deceive you. But the most important thing is that if this is the real and decent modeling agency, it gives you a copy. From the other part, the fake modeling agency doesn’t accept to give it to you and you will notice that that is a fake one.
- Payment and Average Earnings: Definitely the most important question of all that relates you directly with the job. It may happen that some of the owners will keep avoiding these kinds of answers and they have right because you are not a model that you are working for them until you sign up but how will you know about this? You will ask for services of photo shootings that models get and how much goes the average of it. This way you will instantly understand pretty much how much money a model will get and how he/she will profit for a year almost.
