Frequently Asked Questions

I HAVE A GREAT FACE BUT I'M UNDER 170 ?

ONE ALWAYS HEARS ABOUT DREAM FEES. WHAT ARE THE EARNING POSSIBILITIES FOR PHOTO MODELS?
The model fees depend on the career level a model is at. The more editorial jobs a model does – i. e. Photos that are published in renowned fashion magazines, the higher their daily fee increases. Photo models with professional experience and good portfolios earn very well and can also make a good living from it. However, the way there is not easy and should not be underestimated. Without diligence and passion for the job, it will hardly be possible to successfully start a modeling career.
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO GAIN THE NECESSARY WORK EXPERIENCE?
That depends on how much time you can make available to enable a smooth career which can take several months or even longer if you are still attending school etc. However, discipline, commitment, perseverance and above all passion.
HOW DO I RECOGNIZE UNSERIOUS AGENCIES AND HOW DO I DEAL WITH THIS?
There are black sheep in every industry. It is best to stay away from so-called agencies that ask for money in advance. Agencies that make big career promises to you even though you don’t meet the requirements are also questionable. There is no association in Switzerland that can provide you with information, so we recommend that you inquire about agencies in well-known magazines, or in any case e.g. B. visiting several agencies with your parents. You can also look around on the agencies’ websites and get an impression. You should also not believe the feedback from agencies about competitors and it is best to visit various agencies and get a personal impression.
