DO YOUR RESEARCH:
Research our agency before you apply so that you can see the sort of clients we have and shoots we submit models for. As with any serious job application, it is important to know who you are applying to.
It is vital therefore, if you wish to pursue a career in modeling, that you do lots of research on model requirements, and arm yourself with as much knowledge as possible about the model industry and fashion world. It is a cutthroat and difficult industry and successful models are independent, pro active, have a confident but polite decorum and know how to be professional at all times. It is important to know how to behave on set and to adhere to strict guidelines and direction. Learning about the good and bad things about the industry will make you more able to adapt to situations.
As a model you must become aware of being in charge of your own finances, and therefore it is advisable that you actively seek an accountant who can start you up in financial matters.
Our team are here to help you along the way, but it is important that you do the groundwork via research so that you are fully aware of requirements and what it means to be a model.
Vision Models welcomes applications from Experienced Mainboard, New Faces, Classic and Real over the age of 18 years old.
We are a commercial model agency and as such, our client’s mainly are within the advertising sector. We look for models with a strong commercial look or special skill. Basic acting experience is helpful. The ability to take direction and be professional at all times is a must for a Vision Model.
