OVERVIEW ABOUT THE MODELING INDUSTRY
Provide us with an overview of the modeling industry. How big is it? What are the opportunities available for a new and aspiring model? Modeling today is glamorous and exciting, challenging and competitive. Opportunities abound, yet being a model is not as easy as it seems.
A model can work in the following areas:
Commercial/editorial print and catalog modeling: anyone who work in these fields can earn anywhere from the low end of unfortunately exposure work (a necessary evil in modeling) to $100 to $300 an hour to the high end of $500 - $50,000 a day.
Print (editorial) models are those who pose for professional photographers, interpreting a certain theme or concept. The output is referred to as photo shoots and these are featured in fashion magazines as either cover or features in its pages.
Commercial print modeling: a rather select number of models, who were chosen to promote a particular product. The work of the model can be seen as either billboard, ads appearing on buses and on print publications.
Catalog modeling: are those hired to appear in fashion catalogs and sell everyday products. A model for catalog need not worry about height and body requirements as the need for a model in these areas maybe different from the usual model requirements.
Ramp modeling: the glamorous side of modeling, reserved to the so-called runway models. A ramp model needs to possess outstanding personality, the ability to stand out from the rest, show lots of confidence, grace and poise in front of a highly discriminating audience.
A ramp model need to pass rigid requirements: He should be at least 6'0" and has a great body built. A female ramp model must be at least 5'8". However, there has been exceptions to the rule and models are now walking at ANY HEIGHT.
The modeling industry is now a global business. Models are required to travel around the world for work; there they meet different clients, photographers, stylists and media experts. They are also expected to be ready for work at a moments notice.
