Are you an aspiring model looking to launch your career? Maybe an established talent looking to brush up on your runway skills? Most talent wonder, are modeling classes worth it? Does the cost make sense? We have a few tips to help you decide.
Modeling as a career can be very lucrative. Major campaigns for luxury brands such as Burberry or Gucci could possibility yield a male model or female model plenty of cash, hence why so many think modeling is a smart choice.
Did you know, it is thought that less than five percent of models are actually signed to a modeling agency? With that being said, there are also plenty of modeling jobs that don’t pay as much, if at all.
Becoming a model is hard work, especially in a major market like New York City where there are plenty of modeling agencies, with very few aspiring talent actually signed with them.
Some Top Modeling Agencies in New York Include:
Ford Models: Worldwide offices represent women, men, and children for editorials and parts assignments and include plus size divisions.
RE:Quest Models: New York City based modeling agency that manages women and men for editorial and advertising campaigns.
