One of the most common questions that our fashion modeling agency gets on a daily basis is the question about how much it costs to become a model. In particular, the area that can create the most confusion for new models is the topic about the fees and expenses involved when starting a modeling career. There is a lot of inaccurate information on the Internet regarding modeling fees and modeling expenses and what a model should and should not pay for when joining a modeling agency and starting her fashion modeling career. In fact, the information regarding how much money it costs to become a model can be so confusing and overwhelming that many new models decide to simply give up and never follow their dreams.

Starting Your Modeling Career – What You Need To Get Started As A Model

When you first start on your journey to become a fashion model there is only one very important thing that you will need (besides being beautiful, having a wonderful personality, and meeting the minimum requirements of the modeling agency where you are applying) and that is to have great looking Polaroids. Polaroids is the term that was used when people would take instant pictures in the 1970′s (the camera would print out the picture almost instantly so you could show them to your friends). When you walked into a modeling agency during an open call the agents would take your picture with a Polaroid camera (the picture would just come out of the camera) instead of having to send the film somewhere else for processing and having to wait several days for the modeling agents to see and review the images of the models.

Today, thanks to digital cameras people born during this century are probably not familiar with the term Polaroids but the word stuck and is still used today by modeling agents to mean basic snapshots or digital pictures. When applying to your favorite modeling agency these Polaroids should be clear images of you wearing simple clothing and no makeup.

One of the most common mistakes that new models make when applying to ZARZAR MODELING AGENCY is to send blurry images of themselves (pictures that are not very clear) instead of taking the time to have a relative or a friend take the picture with the model posing in front of a nice white background (highly recommended). Even worse is when a new model applying to our modeling agency says that she has been dreaming all of her life in becoming a fashion model but she will not even take the time to have a friend or a relative take clean and clear Polaroids of her in order to increase her chances of admission to our modeling agency so that she could become a fashion model and start her modeling career.

Are Professional Photographs Required To Become A Model And If They Are Required How Much Money Do Professional Pictures Cost?

Modeling fees and modeling expenses can be a very confusing and overwhelming subject for new models, parents, and the relatives of new models and probably nothing is more confusing than the issue of whether professional pictures are required to apply to a modeling agency and the costs involved with obtaining those professional photographs and images. Fortunately for new models, professional pictures are not required to apply to a modeling agency and any modeling agency asking you to pay for professional photographs in order to be considered for admission to their agency is probably trying to steal your hard earned money (or your parent’s hard earned money) and profit from your lack of knowledge about the fashion modeling industry.

The reason why professional pictures are not required to apply to a modeling agency is because modeling agents want to see the real you and not some retouched version of you (thanks to advances in Photoshop and retouching software for the fashion industry). In other words, modeling agents want to be able to see all of your physical imperfections (if any) in the Polaroids that you send them so that they can make an informed decision about whether you should be admitted to their modeling agency.

How Much Does It Cost To Become A Model?

You may have noticed that up to this point the costs to become a fashion model are practically zero. Once you have your beautiful Polaroids ready you basically have four options depending on the modeling agency: you can mail them by postal mail (the old fashioned way assuming the modeling agency still accepts modeling applications by mail), you can e-mail them to the modeling agency, you can upload them to their website, or you can take them with you to a modeling agency open call (model casting open to the public) but it is important to note that once you arrive to a modeling agency open call the model agents will take their own Polaroids (a lot of top modeling agencies do not have open calls and instead do modeling interviews by invitation only). Thus, in general the most that it will cost a new model to apply to a modeling agency to become a fashion model will be the price paid for the stamps and the cost of transportation to the modeling agency (so that she may attend the model interviews).

How Much Does It Cost To Become A Model And What Happens When A Modeling Agency Wants To Sign You As One Of Their Fashion Models?

Assuming that your pictures look amazing, that you are granted a model interview or multiple modeling interviews, and that the modeling agents and modeling scouts find you so beautiful and charming (meaning that they arrive at the conclusion that you have an amazing and wonderful personality), then and only then will the modeling agents on behalf of the modeling agency offer to sign you for modeling representation. Around this time or sometimes even before the modeling agency offers to sign you for modeling representation is when the topic of modeling fees, modeling costs, and modeling expenses is first discussed in detail. It is during these conversations with the modeling agents that you will likely be told that you need to hire fashion photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, fashion stylists, and manicurists.

You will also be told by the modeling agents and agency representatives that you need to make prints of your photos for your modeling book (modeling portfolio), create composite cards for clients (composite cards are very big fashion modeling cards with pictures of you), etc. Some modeling agencies may even tell you that you need modeling classes such as runway training in order to improve your modeling skills. It is at this point in time that you need to stop what you are doing, take a deep breath, analyze and discuss with your family what the agency is asking of you, and decide if what the modeling agency is recommending for you is in the best interest of your fashion modeling career.

Modeling Fees, Modeling Expenses, And The Costs Of Becoming A Fashion Model When A Modeling Agency Wants To Sign You

Many new models have heard modeling experts say “if you have to pay for anything it is a scam” or “if a modeling agency likes you they will pay for everything”. While this is certainly true in many cases that involve fake modeling agencies or new modeling agencies (with no clients and no bookings) that make their money by convincing new models to take photo shoots with their own photographers, this is not always the case, and it is never as black and white as some people would like you to believe.

A few very important things to keep in mind about modeling fees, modeling costs, and modeling expenses are the following:

What Is The Reputation Of The Modeling Agency?

Is the modeling agency a top modeling agency known around the world for developing top models, supermodels, and getting them bookings with very prestigious fashion clients? If they are a small local modeling agency do they at least have connections to the larger modeling agencies in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, and Milan?

As a general rule (there are always exceptions), the longer the modeling agency has been around (measured in decades) and the stronger the quality of its fashion models, the less risk there is to you. The modeling agency may not represent any supermodels because it is a small local modeling agency, but if the quality of their model roster is stronger than the quality of the model roster of the other local modeling agencies in your area, then it is probably for a very good reason, and if in addition to having the best model roster of all the local modeling agencies in your area they also have been in the modeling business for decades then the chances of that local modeling agency trying to scam you and take advantage of you are greatly reduced.

Should The Model Or Her Modeling Agency Pay For Professional Modeling Pictures And Professional Modeling Photographs? Who Pays For The Modeling Pictures Needed For The Model’s Fashion Modeling Portfolio?

A large number of modeling agencies make their money by selling their fashion modeling services (runway training, modeling pictures, etc.) which can cause new models to easily spend thousands of dollars within a very short period of time. Large established modeling agencies make the majority of their money not by selling their fashion modeling services and charging extravagant fees to their models but by earning a percentage of the earnings from the models that they represent (this makes sure that the interests and long term goals of each model and her modeling agency are aligned).

The standard in the modeling industry is for the modeling agency to earn 20% of what the model makes from her fashion modeling jobs (fashion advertising campaigns, runway fashion shows, etc.). Thus, if you notice that the modeling agency that you are considering to join as one of their fashion models focuses more on selling fashion modeling services to you instead of focusing in developing your fashion modeling career and getting you paid modeling bookings, then it might be a sign that you could do a lot better with another modeling agency with a stronger and better reputation in the fashion modeling industry. In other words, paying your modeling agency for expensive fashion modeling services such as photo shoots and runway training (modeling classes can be beneficial to beginning models, but are never a requirement for you to get signed to a modeling agency) could be a warning sign that the modeling agency probably earns more money selling photo shoots than getting paid bookings (paid modeling jobs) for their fashion models.

Do Top Modeling Agencies In Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, And Milan Advance Modeling Expenses And Modeling Fees For New Models?

This is probably the area that causes the most confusion with new models (beginning models) because they might have heard stories about how a big and very prestigious Los Angeles or New York modeling agency paid for a model’s flight tickets, apartment expenses (rent expenses), food expenses, transportation expenses, etc. and the model did not have to pay a dime upfront. Thus, this is where it gets tricky and the short answer to the question is that it depends on who the model is and how the modeling agency views her potential in the fashion modeling industry. In other words, if a fashion modeling agency believes that the model will be a successful high fashion model that will earn millions of dollars per year than the modeling agency will view a few thousand dollars as an insignificant cost of doing business. However, what models new to the modeling industry might not have heard is that big prestigious modeling agencies may advance your modeling fees and modeling expenses but you will be expected to pay them back once you start booking paid modeling jobs and making money. In other words, once you start booking paid modeling jobs and making money your modeling agency will deduct what is owed to them from your fashion modeling account.

It is important to remember that while a big prestigious fashion modeling agency in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, or Milan with dozens or even hundreds of modeling agents and thousands of fashion models located around the world may offer to advance your modeling fees and modeling expenses, modeling agencies in smaller markets simply do not have the financial resources to finance and lend money to new models. If you have the opportunity to work with a good local modeling agency in a smaller market do not pass it up (unless a bigger and more prestigious modeling agency wants to sign you) because they can be a valuable asset to your fashion modeling career. Most importantly, please do not give up on yourself or a specific modeling agency when the topic of modeling expenses comes up. Instead, think about what is best for your fashion modeling career and what the modeling agency is asking you to do, then discuss the subject matter with your family and loved ones, and then and only then sign with the modeling agency if you feel that doing so would be in your best interest and the best interest of your fashion modeling career.

Every Model And Every Fashion Modeling Agency Is Different And Unique

Most fashion models beginning their modeling careers do not start at the big multinational modeling agencies (fashion modeling agencies with offices and fashion models located around the world). Instead, new fashion models learn about the modeling industry, develop their look and their modeling skills, and build their fashion modeling portfolios (known as their modeling books) in the smaller local modeling agencies. With time, and if successful in the local area where they model, they eventually get signed to the bigger and more prestigious modeling agencies located around the world (including the major fashion capitals such as New York, London, Paris, and Milan). Even then, when these top fashion models are signed to a top modeling agency they are still considered independent contractors, which basically means that these top fashion models are not employees of the modeling agency, but instead their fashion modeling services as a model are contracted by their modeling agency. Thus, all the modeling expenses incurred by a top fashion model will be her responsibility even if her modeling agency provides an advance and lends her the money for her modeling expenses.

Even after you start working for a top modeling agency and booking a large number of paid modeling jobs, just like all the other supermodels, you will have ongoing modeling expenses and modeling fees such as new photo shoots, printing expenses for your fashion modeling portfolio (your modeling book), FedEx and other shipping expenses, couriers, taxi drivers and other transportation expenses such as flight expenses (except for direct bookings in which case the client generally pays for your flight and hotel expenses), the 20% agency commission, travel expenses, long distance telephone charges, etc. However, even after paying for all of these modeling expenses it is likely that these will be considered small expenses in relation to the amount of money that you will be making from modeling.

In addition, please note that agency commissions may vary substantially when you model in foreign countries, specially in countries located in Asia, which is why it is extremely important for you to have a world class mother agency representing you (a mother agency generally represents you worldwide and is responsible for negotiating the best commission rates for you with foreign modeling agencies located around the world that would like to represent you in their local jurisdictions). This is the reason why supermodels have one mother agency representing them who through skill, experience, and negotiation are able to sign their supermodels with additional modeling agencies responsible for representing them worldwide (ZARZAR MODELS would be a perfect example of a mother agency that represents several hundred fashion models worldwide through its vast fashion modeling network of top modeling agencies and modeling agents located in different countries around the world).

There are probably thousands of aspiring models who have had the opportunity and potential to be famous, extremely successful, and very wealthy fashion models, but they never fulfilled their true potential because they were stuck in the belief that someone else should have paid for their fashion modeling career expenses. The problem with that line of thinking is that you will almost always have the opportunity to make a few thousand dollars back but you will never be able to get back the lost opportunity of a lifetime. Thus, when it comes to fashion modeling fees and fashion modeling expenses it is important to keep in mind that every model is unique, that every situation is different, and that every fashion modeling agency is different. If you had the opportunity to ask the 21 highest paid models in the world how they got started in modeling you would probably get 21 different fascinating stories, which is exactly the point to this story, and that is that you should follow your dreams, believe in yourself, and most importantly, enjoy every single moment of your fashion modeling career, for it can truly be a once in a lifetime experience and adventure that you will never forget.

How To Get Started In Modeling And Acting – How To Get Into Modeling For Teenagers (Teens And Teenage Girls) And How To Start A Modeling Career And Get A Modeling Agent

ZARZAR MODELING AGENCY also known around the world as ZARZAR MODELS continues its series “Navigating The Modeling World – How To Become A Model” and “How To: Your Guide To Beauty – How To Look More Beautiful” by explaining the secrets of how to get started in modeling and how to get into the modeling industry. Our fashion modeling series cover such important things as how to get discovered by an agent, what modeling agents and agencies are constantly looking for as well as the minimum requirements to become a successful fashion model.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teenagers – Health First

Being a professional fashion model means taking care of your body which includes a healthy diet, lifestyle, and proper sleep (at least 8 hours of a good night sleep since this is the time when your cells regenerate so that you can look more beautiful and pretty). Don’t depend on Photoshop to “fix” you. Photographers and fashion clients still want to see a girl who has beautiful hair and a glowing skin complexion.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teens And Teenage Girls – A Beautiful Personality

Fashion clients need to enjoy working with you and doing photo shoots with you. Attitude and personal problems must be left at the door. Having a professional work ethic is needed to succeed in the fashion modeling industry and become a successful fashion model. A lot of work as a model will come from repeat bookings and regular clients. Your main objective should be to leave a photo shoot with everyone wanting to work with you again. In the fashion modeling industry business, it doesn’t take long for word of mouth to make or break your fashion modeling career. A beautiful personality is extremely important if you are also the face of a brand and do model interviews (press interviews) representing specific fashion brands as the following fashion model interviews and press event illustrates.

How To Get Started In Modeling – Confidence, Persistence, And Determination Are Extremely Important For Becoming A Successful Fashion Model

Allow yourself to open up and be yourself in front of the camera. Fashion photographers love to work with models that are confident in themselves and not self conscious about their looks, appearance, and/or their posing skills for the photo shoot. Being confident, having the ability to move freely and correctly, and giving a range of expressions is key to getting that perfect beautiful shot. It is also very important to not take anything personally, specially rejections. Fashion models that generally succeed are able to handle continuous rejection from fashion clients. There are a number of top models and supermodels who heard plenty of no’s before they developed an incredibly successful fashion modeling career.

Having the right look, height, and body size as a fashion model will definitely get the attention of a modeling agent at a top modeling agency, but also having a beautiful personality can help you in that final step which is actually getting signed by a top modeling agency (getting the initial model interview with a top fashion modeling agency will not help you much if you can’t seal the deal and get signed by a top modeling agency). Don’t underestimate how important personality plays in getting signed by a modeling agency and in becoming a top model.

How To Get Started In Modeling And How To Get A Modeling Agent – Choose A Market And Location

In fashion modeling there are various different markets and selecting the one that you are most suitable for will have a major effect on your success as a fashion model. Location is extremely important in modeling, and if you are not in the right city and country and you are not willing to move you probably will not make it as a successful fashion model simply because there simply will not be enough modeling work for you. Major fashion markets in the United States include Los Angeles for models located in the Western United States and New York for models located in the Eastern United States in addition to London, Paris, and Milan in Italy.

Take a look at our fascinating stories about the “Money Girls – The Highest Paid Models In The World” and you will see that at some point in their modeling careers these top models eventually moved to either New York, London, Paris, or Milan (the fashion capitals of the world). However, it is important to note that selecting the right market for you is the job of your modeling agent and your modeling agency since top modeling agencies will generally know what will work best for you based on your particular look.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teens And Teenage Girls – Money Is Not Required

This is the area that causes the most confusion with potential new models in the fashion modeling industry. Top modeling agencies will either pay for all of your portfolio development expenses such as photo shoots for developing your book (your modeling portfolio) or they will advance you the expenses which basically means that they will subtract what you owe them from your future modeling paychecks once you start modeling with your modeling agency. The third scenario (and this is where you can distinguish the top modeling agencies from the rest) is when a modeling agency asks you to pay for everything upfront that relates to developing your modeling portfolio.

As of the date of this writing and for over a decade ZARZAR MODELS has never required money from models for photo shoots or in order to sign them with the agency and instead earns a percentage of the earnings generated by the model. You do not need to hire expensive photographers in order to apply to our modeling agency and be considered as a potential ZARZAR MODEL (simple well taken Polaroids by a relative or friend will be sufficient). If a modeling agency is truly interested in signing you and really believes in you they will invest in you.

How To Get Started In Modeling For Teenagers – Types Of Modeling Jobs

Another important thing to consider when starting a modeling career is that there are several types of modeling areas that you can pursue as a fashion model. For example, ZARZAR MODELING AGENCY also known around the world as ZARZAR MODELS has 4 major divisions which include “Editorial & Print”, “Runway”, “Film & Television”, and a 4th division which represents fashion models that are the faces of major brands at press events, etc. which is why a beautiful personality is extremely important. Selecting what division you will be best at in modeling is also the job of your modeling agent and modeling agency after talking with you and discussing your modeling goals, etc.

We all know that famous actresses and singers make so much money per year that millions of girls and teenagers dream of following the career paths of their favorite actresses and singers such as Angelina Jolie and Taylor Swift, but do actresses and singers really make more money than female models and supermodels? Do actresses and singers get all the attention and all the media headlines when in reality female models and supermodels have superior earnings power, make more money modeling, and actually print more cash than the famous actresses and singers that we all hear about in the news?

The Highest Paid Singers (Female Singers) Versus The Highest Paid Models Versus The Highest Paid Actresses – Who Makes The Most Cash?

Madonna – $125 Million United States Dollars In Earnings For The Past Year

We start our list of the “Highest Paid Actresses, Models, And Female Singers In The World” with the one and only “Queen of Pop” known around the world as simply Madonna. Madonna takes the number 1 spot on the Billboard and Forbes lists for “The Highest Paid Female Singers In The World” for the last 12 months with earnings of approximately $125 million United States Dollars (according to Forbes Magazine). Thanks largely to her blockbuster MDNA tour, the “Queen of Pop” became the highest paid singer (female singer) in the world as the MDNA tour was last year’s biggest concert tour ($305 million gross which means what they made before paying all the tour expenses), and the 10th top grossing tour of all time. The 88 day tour earned Madonna an estimated $32 million (according to Billboard). The MDNA tour also supported the MDNA album from Madonna which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and generated impressive physical and digital album sales for the artist. Add the tens of millions earned from endorsements, merchandise sales, and sponsorships and you reach $125 million for the past year.

Lady Gaga – $80 Million United States Dollars In Earnings For The Past Year

Taylor Swift – $55 Million United States Dollars In Earnings For The Past Year Making Her The Third Highest Paid Female Singer In The World

Number 3 on the Forbes list for “The Highest Paid Female Singers In The World” is country singer and singing sensation Taylor Swift with earnings over the last 12 months of $55 million United States Dollars. Taylor Swift also earned big as one of the faces of CoverGirl (fashion modeling so in all fairness it was not all singing). For those that still believe that the music industry is dead, it is important to know that Taylor Swift released her fourth studio album “Red” in October 2012 and sold 1.2 million copies in week one. The album’s first single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” became her first to top Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Think about what was just said…Taylor Swift’s latest music album “Red” sold 1.2 million units during its opening week last fall. Call her country, pop, or both. Either way, Taylor Swift’s Nashville connections helped her music album “Red” sell 1.2 million copies in its first week but as successful as the music album was, the truth is that touring and endorsements (which include fashion modeling for major fashion brands) still make up the majority of her total earnings. That said, Taylor Swift is a record selling powerhouse, moving nearly 3 million physical units and more than 1 million digital albums, and a staggering 15.6 million digital tracks, driven by the release of “Red” and its mega-hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”.

Still not impressed with all of Taylor Swift’s achievements? Well, we also forgot to mention that the 23 year old singer Taylor Swift is also the highest paid female country singer in the world and has taken advantage of that success by signing endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Sony, and CoverGirl (fashion modeling) while making millions touring on the road. Taylor Swift should earn even more next year as she transitions from arena shows to stadium sellouts, and if you are still not impressed with all of these incredible achievements then you really do have very high standards! Our congratulations to you!

The Highest Paid Singers (Female Singers) Versus The Highest Paid Models Versus The Highest Paid Actresses – Who Makes The Most Cash?

By now our millions of fashion modeling fans around the world might be wondering…Where in the world are the fashion models on this special celebrity list of actresses, fashion models, and female singers? Well, the first model on the list (Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen) appears at number 7 with $42 million United States Dollars for the past 12 months with other supermodels following behind (see our “Highest Paid Models In The World” articles and lists throughout our website). Thus, it appears that singers have incredible earnings power and some stability in those earnings thanks to their music royalties and their ability to tour around the world whenever they are low in cash and their bank accounts start looking a little depressing.

What about actresses? Only when we get to $33 million United States Dollars does the first actress appear on the list with American actress Angelina Jolie. Following close behind Angelina Jolie is Colombian actress Sofia Vergara with $30 million United States Dollars in earnings over the past 12 months. Thus, while there appear to be more actresses than models that earn anywhere from $20 to $33 million United States Dollars (including actresses Jennifer Lawrence at $26 million, Kristen Stewart at $22 million, and Jennifer Aniston at only $20 million) the truth is that the earnings of actresses are very unstable compared to the earnings generated by models and supermodels. Many actresses rely on one or two blockbuster films to be able to make the amount of money that these actresses have made over the past year, and if any of the above actresses do not get a major role for a new movie or major television show the following year they can drop from “The Highest Paid Actresses In The World” list faster than you can blink an eye.

Instability in earnings (as compared to actresses) is not so much of a problem for models and supermodels as many models and supermodels represent a fairly large and diverse number of clients in various industries which gives them the added benefit of revenue diversification. This is the reason why the list of “The Highest Paid Models In The World” rarely changes by much while the list of “The Highest Paid Actresses In The World” can be very different from one year to the next. In fact, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has earned $42 million over the past 12 months, $45 million over the previous 12 months, and another $45 million during the 2010-2011 time period. Talk about stable earnings for the world’s highest paid model!

But the truth is that none of these female singers and music stars, models and supermodels, and famous actresses can even come close and rival Sports Illustrated beauty Kathy Ireland. Kathy Ireland was a supermodel in the 1980′s and 1990′s (if you have never heard of Kathy Ireland ask your dad) best known for appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. In 1993, Kathy Ireland started licensing her name in thousands of products around the world and founded a brand marketing company known as “kathy Ireland Worldwide” which has become a multi-billion dollar fashion empire making her perhaps the wealthiest self made model in the world and creating a business empire that not even Madonna or any other famous female singer or actress in the world has been able to match, and that in itself is reason for us models (and our fans) to celebrate as we sincerely hope that models and Supermodels will someday rule the world! Enjoy!
