WHAT IS A MODEL?
A Model is the person who will advertise a product in the form of a photograph. As a Model you could be modelling clothes one day, a home product the next, to a holiday destination in Spain! Your days as a Model will always be exciting.
Remember you’re not just a model, you’re a huge part of clients advertising campaigns. It could be a small or big shoot, but either way this will be a massive campaign to the client.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BE A MODEL?
You have been booked for being you, no matter your shape, size, hair colour or skin colour. As long as you turn up the same way that the client has seen you on your profile (or casting) and you haven't made any drastic changes without informing us.
You will need to be able to take direction very well and have the patience to do the same shot over and over until they get “The One”.
It is extremely beneficial to have a car, early starts, late nights and long days can be extremely common, and public transport can’t always be reliable, if you are late for a job you could be sent home without pay.
You will make friends for life and regularly meet the same photographers, stylists, make up artists, assistants.
First impressions always stick and your confidence will grow sky high! If you do well on set, the photographer will remember you for future campaigns and may even book you as a regular model.
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL PHOTOSHOOT?
All photoshoot days will differ, you may be needed for One hour to a full day. Your booker will always try their best to give you as much information as possible, however things can always change once you are there. We will always recommend that you keep the entire day available.
For children, these hours differ. Please see link here for child working hours - https://www.nncee.org.uk/attachments/article/212/Working%20Hour%20Limits%20-%202015.pdf
A parent is always required to stay with the child on a photoshoot day, this cannot be another family member or friend, unless they have a chaperones license.
