What Parents Should Know When Choosing Modelling Agencies For Teenagers

Choosing Modelling Agencies For Teenagers can be quite daunting, especially where you have never done anything close to this in the past. It is nowhere near choosing the right school or neighborhood for your kids and family respectively. This has the potential of destroying or building your children's modelling dreams and career. First, you need to talk with your child tom determine if they are comfortable about getting into the entertainment industry. It could be your dream, and they are only saying yes, because they do not want to let you down. This is crucial because if it is not their dream, whatever you do going forward, will never satisfy them. Modelling Agencies for Teenagers Must Show Their Success Stories Secondly, you need to look for success stories. Rarely will you get Modelling Agencies For Teenagers that are new in the industry and already boast of a few success stories. You will only get success stories with modeling agencies that have been in operation for years. The world has changed the way businesses and companies are run, and modelling agencies are not exempt. If the agency lacks a website, and you cannot obtain much help from parents of other teens regarding their children's modelling careers, you should avoid working with them. The success stories here do not refer to huge projects, but they should be reassuring to you and your child. When dealing with the Modelling Agencies For Teenagers, you need to find out if they have other kids that are share a few things in common with your child. Examples of these traits include age, ethnicity, and looks. This will reassure you that at least there is a precedent in place, and it is not as if your child will be the first of his/her kind to get such an opportunity. If the agencies have other kids with similar traits to your child's then you will know that they already have the necessary experience to offer you the best services. It is so easy for kids to get lost in a crowd, not unless they have others that they share a few qualities with. Modelling Agencies for Teenagers Love Interviews Modelling Agencies For Teenagers will mostly interview you and your teen son or daughter to determine if they can sign or give you a contract. You will sign the contract on behalf of your kid, since the law does not allow him/her to do so. The teen is still a minor, and as his/her guardian or parent, you have the sole responsibility of signing the contract. It is imperative that you explain what the contract stipulates to your kid. You can only do this once you take the time to interview each agency you come across, even as they are also interviewing you and your teenage child. If the answers do not please you, then there will be no need for the contract. Finally, always remember to send your thank you message to the Modelling Agencies For Teenagers that allow you to visit and talk with them about your child's potentials in this industry. Never take the whole experience for granted. Learn to be grateful and show the agencies that you are grateful by calling or sending them an email thanking them for their time. This way, you increase your kid's chances of being hired by these top modelling agencies, such as Models Direct.


In these tough economic times, modelling agencies have no option but to become more selective in terms of signing new faces. This article shows how this can work to a new model's advantage. There's no mistaking fashion's intent over the past few seasons. With buyers' purse strings getting tighter, designers have to make choices about what they want to show, as this will determine their economic survival into next year and beyond. While some designers have decided to produce ultra-wearable, inoffensive collections, others (in fact the majority) have decided that survival is pivotal on having a sartorial point of view. As a result, fashion has become vastly polarised. Looks this season swing between the extremes of Russian boho chic and super-shouldered Balmain look that borrows heavily from the Eighties. Where fashion leads, modelling agencies have to follow. In order to stay afloat themselves, they have to provide editors, photographers and advertisers with models that will book jobs time after time. This means that they have had to become more selective, which means sharpening their agency's vision: what type of models do they want to specialise in? By being more selective, agencies are aiming themselves at a particular market. If they are a high-fashion agency, only signing new faces that meet those criteria means that the likelihood of their new faces being rejected for high-fashion castings is reduced. This re-focusing is also helpful for prospective models looking for an agency. Signing with an agency is the most important step in a model's career and signing with the right one is absolutely crucial. By agencies clarifying exactly what it is they're looking for, a new model has a fairer chance of marketing themselves towards the right area of the modelling industry. Far from being a negative, this move towards a clearer understanding of what agencies and clients want can make the search for an agency quicker, easier and less fraught, which in the long term, is good news for everyone.

How to Become a Model - Made Easy

How to become a model is a dream of many young women. With the passing age, many give up the thought on becoming a model and tuck that dream away, thinking it is only for the lucky few. Modelling can be done even though it is a difficult profession to break into. There are some tips you want to follow if you are wondering how to become a model and end people looking for model search. Looks are essential You do have to have a certain look if you want to be a model, although we all know that the worth of a person should not be judged by their appearance rather from their character and deeds. Very few models are less than 5'8". In actual fact, in most of the modelling world, being five feet, eight inches tall is considered short. Trying to get runway work might be difficult for a girl who is this height or under, she might be able to work as a hand model. Hand models work in television, web, and print advertising. In order to obtain this sort of work, you need to have near flawless hands. You will need to have near perfect cuticles, even skin tone and nails that is attractive. Do not put off hand modelling as a very viable option, if you are wondering how to become a model. Types of Modelling There are still other alternatives available to you, if you are not interested in being a hand or a runway model. To be a model for fashion magazines and catalogues are a very popular modelling choice. There is a whole segment of the modelling population that only does catalogue and magazine work, while some do the same too. Fashion houses, fashion magazines are on a lookout for model search all year round. You still need to have the right look for this type of work. Nonetheless, the right look is not always blonde, leggy, and tall. Many attractive women make an excellent living modelling for high-end companies even though they do not fit the runway look. Personal Attributes The modelling world is stressful and it takes a certain kind of person to both excel and survive, just like in many other competitive professions. There might be many turn downs before you get your big break therefore you will need to be tenacious.

Being professional will help you develop your career and fulfil you longing dream on how to become a model.

Singapore’S Next Top ‘Male’ Models

I can't count the number of times I've heard Singaporean women moan about the quality of the local guys. They're not tall enough, they say, or not handsome, or they don't look after themselves. Well, thankfully we can now put all these complaints to rest. Thanks to veteran fashion show producer and all-round godfather of Singapore fashion Daniel Boey, I have six hot, young Singaporean male models for you to meet. The €boys€ as they're collectively referred to, are fairly new to the modelling and high fashion world. Out of the group only one had previously walked for Men's Fashion Week, the others were all brand new; with some of them having only a few months experience. Aaron Ng, Ian Luah, Conrad Ho, Gabriel DS and the twins, Ng Yu Rui and Ng Yu Ze are all very young €' Conrad and Gabriel are actually still doing National Service, while the twins are waiting to be called up, while Aaron and Ian have just finished. All of them are modelling part-time, mainly they say because there's just not enough work available in Singapore for Singaporean, or even Asian, models. According to Daniel Boey, this is true not just for the guys but also for the girls. There remains a tendency for both Singaporean and international fashion brands and magazines to use Caucasian models for both the runway and editorial work. So Daniel was ecstatic that he managed to get nine local models booked for all the shows at the recently ended Men's Fashion Week 2012 (MFW2012). Ian walked in 10 shows, while Aaron and twins also racked up a substantial number; and they were competing not only with Caucasian models but also some of Asia's best like Korean stars Lee Soo Hyuk, Heo Min Ho, Kim Han Soo and Japanese actor/model Tanihara Shosuke. €Actually it's great for the local boys to be walking with all these international models,€ explained Daniel. €It makes them more competitive, they want to be as good and so they try really hard to improve.€ And they did. For Ian, who had only done one other catwalk show before booking MFW2012, you could literally see him improve with each show he walked. Considering he's only been modelling for seven or so months, it was pretty amazing. We sat down with the €boys€ to have a bit of a chat about what they thought about being a male model, how they got into it and what they thought about the chances of Asian models making it big. CONRAD HO, 22 Modelling for about 4 years How did he get into modelling? Conrad said he had a lot friends who are studying fashion and they kept asking him to help out by wearing their clothes for school projects or doing shows for them. He then won the ATZU model competition for last year's Men's Fashion Week and was spotted by Daniel; he's been working part-time ever since. Would he like to make modelling into a career? According to Conrad, it's a bit difficult to have a full-time modelling career in Singapore. He's currently serving his National Service and is planning on doing a degree in Arts Management or Communication when he's finished. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €When I was modelling at Men's Fashion Week last year there was only one other Singaporean male model; it was a bit awkward. This year there are six of us and a lot more top Asian models walking. I think there needs to be a bigger push for more local models and more Asians. There is some change, but it's gradual.€ GABRIEL DS, 23 Modelling for about 3 years How did he get into modelling? Gabriel is actually a musician and tattoo artist. He only models for fun and got into it because his friends are working in the industry. Would he like to make modelling into a career? Not really. For Gabriel modelling is only a part-time thing, he's more interested in pursuing his career in music and tattooing after he finishes his National Service. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €This is my first time [to walk in a major show], I've done more editorial work. I think there should be more Asian models, it's a good thing [for the industry] and it makes sense. Asians are buying the clothes and so should be seen wearing them.€ IAN LUAH, 23 Modelling for about 7-8 months How did he get into modelling? He knew local model agent Addie Low who had been trying to get him to sign up while. Since Ian wasn't really ready, Addie waited until he was and then signed him up. Would he like to make modelling into a career? While Ian appears to be interested in trying to take modelling full-time, he says that it's really only a freelance or part-time job at the moment. He also works in his family's business. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €I don't really think Asian models can break into the [serious side] of the modelling industry easily; the market is still more interested in using Caucasian models, especially for guys. I do think it is improving but it very gradual; for Asian models it's generally slower to be recognised.€ NG YU RUI, 21 Modelling for only a few months How did he get into modelling? Yu Rui was also picked up by model scout Addie Low, who he met through friends in the industry. Would he like to make modelling into a career? Yu Rui is another one who's not so interested in modelling full-time. He's currently waiting to enter National Service but says that even after he finished and studying he'd like to keep modelling as a part-time hobby. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €I actually think it's getting better. There are more Asian faces in commercials and more Asians generally in the fashion industry.€ NG YU ZE, 21 Modelling for only a few months How did he get into modelling? Like his twin brother, Yu Ze, was scouted by Addie Low at the same time as his brother. Would he like to make modelling into a career? Yu Ze is really only interested in modelling for a short time; he doesn't see it as a possible full-time career. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €There are more and more younger Asians taking over various parts of the fashion industry, so I think this will help improve the overall status of Asians in modelling.€ AARON NG, 23 Modelling for about 2 years How did he get into modelling? Aaron was hanging out at Zouk, supporting his friend who was entered into the Cleo Bachelor of the Year competition when he was spotted, once again, by model scout Addie Low. Turned out his friend was already signed with Addie's +3 Models agency so Aaron agreed to sign up as well. He's also a breakdancer and Addie has had to wait for a year or so for his hair to grow out enough for him to be more versatile and able to book more shows - apparently it was shaved off in all sorts of ways. Would he like to make modelling into a career? Aaron would like to give full-time modelling a try if the opportunity came up but he's prepared for it to always be a part-time activity. Although he's finished his National Service, Aaron is currently studying Business at SMU - he actually missed doing a few MFW2012 shows as he was sitting exams. What does he think about the general status of Singaporean and Asian models? €It's hard for Singaporean models, a lot of the bigger agencies only want to use international [Caucasian] models but it's getting better. I now go to more castings where they're actually looking for Asian models so there's more opportunity to get work. I'd like to be able to do more editorial [photographic] work too. I'd take the opportunity if it was good, I'm a bit split on my career, whether to focus on my studies or tr
