  1. 1. Primodels Review-Try to Buy Success • There is a whole industry built around this approach to getting started in modeling. Very few models actually come from this avenue of trying to start a career. This area includes many of the modeling school, modeling camps, model searches, Internet listing services, modeling contest, modeling conventions, and pageants. This is not to say that these activities can't be interesting, educational and fun. Most of these organizations will take on and take money from almost anyone who wants to be a model. This leads to a very low percentage of career models who actually come from these activities. Most of these organizations survive by playing on people’s dreams, ignorance, and pocket books and not by finding and developing top modeling talent. But in spite of this sometimes someone does make it and this is what these organizations feature in their sales pitches and videos.
  2. 2. What are the height and size requirements for a high fashion model? • This does seem to be the burning question. The general guidelines for women are; 5'6" to 6', around a size 3, 34B-24-34, and between 14-21 years of age. For men around 6' (a couple of inches over or under,) size 40R. Are there exceptions to this? You bet. Is it fair? No. Are there petite sizes and plus sizes? Yes. Do commercial, glamour, acting, or smaller markets care anything about these sizes? Not much. Only if you want to work high fashion in the major markets, like Melbourne, are these numbers important.
  3. 3. Are there jobs for models who specialize in just parts of the body? • Yes. Hand models are often hard to find especially when you need one. It has been my experience that many models will have photogenic faces and good bodies but their hands and feet can be just horrid. Often times you will use one person for the face and have a hand model reaching into the picture to provide the hands. Of course the Primodels photographer makes it look like one person but in fact there are two. With jewelry photography we look for good hands, nice neck, and ears. A good ear is very hard to find as they have to be shaped just right, the skin has to be very smooth, and you want them pierced for only one earring not 25. Unfortunately, paying jobs for jewelry modeling seldom come along. It is best to find other industries that need good-looking body parts. Parts models follow similar career paths as regular models. So if you are interested in this type of modeling read through the Primodels Review advice section on the site.
  4. 4. How much do models make? • What you hear about is the fabulous big bucks that super models make. Out of all the models in the world, only a handful of them make this top dollar. Their yearly income can be in the millions. But for most models it will be far less, assuming you get any work at all. As a general rule for markets outside of Melbourne, modeling fees will be in the range of photographer's fees. For a market like Portland, Oregon, the last I check modeling agencies were asking $150 an hour. As you move to larger markets fees for photographers and models will go up (I saw one agency in Melbourne asking $250 per hour) This may not bring you the big bucks of a super model but it will give you a good living if you can find steady work. And that is a big "if“.
  5. 5. Can a modeling agency tell just from a snap shot if I have what it takes to be a model? • Yes and No. One of the normal screening practices for modeling agencies is to have you send a couple of snap shots of yourself, usually a head and shoulder shot and a full- length body shot in a bathing suit or tight clothes. From these snap shots some say they can tell if you have what it takes for modeling. They say, "Don't spend money on getting photos taken, a Polaroid by your friend is just fine“.
  6. 6. Can a modeling agency tell just from a snap shot if I have what it takes to be a model? • To respond to the "yes" part of this question requires that you send to the modeling agency good, clear, properly exposed, properly composed and with you properly positioned photographs. They can use these photos as a screening tool. This means that if they have an opening for someone with your look, they will be interested in meeting with you in person to see if, in fact, you look like your picture. This does not necessarily mean you have or do not have what it takes to be a model. It just gets you an interview and maybe on to a test shoot.
  7. 7. • To respond to the "no" part of the question means most people send bad pictures, or they may look great but you don't meet the agency's needs at that moment or the agent guessed wrong. When they talk about sending a simple snap shot, they are actually looking for at least an advance amateur level of photography or a wannabe professional photographer level. Having taught photography for a number of years, I can say that most beginners have problems with exposure, focus, and composition, let alone knowing how to position you to look your best. You may not want to trust your career to your best friend's ability as a photographer unless they know something about photography.
  8. 8. • Normally you will want to try several modeling agencies to see if they are interested in you. Primodels modeling agency may be full of blue eyed blondes while another may have none and need someone. Some of this is just being in the right place at the right time.
  9. 9. • Also, we all have our war stories of getting it wrong. One agency or photographer may say someone does not have what it takes and then they go to another agency and become a star. I remember photographing a young 14-year- old, Jody, who I thought just didn't have the classic beauty look and told her I doubted if she would accomplish much in this field. Fortunately, she did not listen to me. She started working out, kept up her modeling and beauty work, switched over to the pageant side of things and became Miss Oregon. I was way off on that call. I think the initial snap shot, interview, and test shot are just screening processes to find those who would have an easier time in modeling. Some special few may still find some measure of success in modeling by hard work and developing special talents. They won't become superstars but they can find enjoyment and financial rewards pursuing a modeling career.
