#ASK THE AGENT - WHAT'S COMMERCIAL MODELLING?
Updated: Jan 9, 2022
Hi and welcome to another episode of #ASK THE AGENT, a place where you can ask me anything about modelling or the fashion industry.
In case you don't know, I've been in the modelling and fashion industries for over 29 years (I started out as a model in 1985). For the last 16 of those 29 years, I've been a model agent working for the likes of CLYNE and 62 MODELS until in 2005, I co-founded my own agency in Red11 Models. I left Red11 in December '13, and no longer represent or manage their people. But I'm scouting models and talent of my own and have people placed with 62 & UNIQUE Models. So watch this space!
I've worked with 1000's of teens and young people, responsible for launching and building many model careers including (note: I do not represent any of the people in the following. This is merely my own 'portfolio' of my work, some of the people it was my job to develop and build):
So feel free to ask me anything on #ASK THE AGENT.
Today, I talk about what does commercial modelling mean?
Q: I approached an agency who said I'd be good for fashion but not commercial modelling. They said they'll wait and see at the end of the year when I need to apply again. What does commercial modelling mean and why won’t they take me on? -Really Want To Model
A: Hi Really Want To Model,
First of all, thanks for writing in. That's a really good question. I looked at your pictures and I can understand why the agency want to check back in with you. You have a great look. What I’m going to do is use my trusty whiteboard to explain the different types of modeling and what it means.
Head on over to my video to find out what the different types of modelling are!
NOTE: all my videos are shot off the cuff and from the heart. So rather than re-shooting for perfection, I just go with the flow sharing what I know. And excuse a few repeat mistakes.
Because with me, what you see is what you get!
Thanks for joining me! If you see anything here that could be useful to someone, share it!
Until next time,
