Become a Model

Frequently Asked Questions

Information for new models

We are frequently asked ‘What does it cost to become a model’ and ‘How much should I have to pay an agency to take me on their books?’ The answer to the second question is nothing . No agency should charge a model purely to be represented. Agencies make their income from commission, which they take from fees earned from jobs.

There are certain items, which you will need to acquire in order to become a model. The most obvious is, of course, professional photographs. However, these are not required in order to apply to an agency.  In fact, agencies would prefer to see just a clear snapshot of yourself, with very little make up, in order to make a decision as to whether to offer you an interview. Please do not pay out for expensive professional photos before seeing an agency, as the photos will probably not be right for modelling work and many prospective models have been charged a ridiculous amount of money for useless shots. If you are taken on with an agency they will be able to point you in the direction of a good, reasonably priced photographer.
