As applicable to any modeling market, Singapore modeling firms look for diverse kinds of models. Firms in Singapore represent female and male models, commercial models, editorial, and child models. One of the exciting things about the Singapore modeling agency is that they prefer to work with models that are smaller or shorter than models who often work in Europe or the US markets.
The average height of female models is 5′ 6″, while that of the male models is 5′ 10″. In fact, there is every possibility for models to be shorter and still be able to work for several Singapore modeling firms.
Rather than focusing solely on a model’s height, agencies are known to look at the total package of the model, which includes a good personality, excellent teeth, hair, and skin.
Previous Modeling Experience Not Necessary
It is not essential to have a previous modeling experience before working in Singapore, however, every little detail is vital. It is recommended that you have some knowledge about how to work in the studio with stylists and photographers, and have already taken up to three shots (or engaged in some work in your local area) before venturing into the Singaporean market.
Agencies Will Advance Travel Expenses
Almost all Singaporean agencies will offer to advance your accommodation expenses and airline ticket. Other costs that may be paid by the agencies include; website fees, composite cards, and other miscellaneous fees.
Agencies are willing to pay for these expenses to help you get back to your feet and you are expected to pay back the agency once you start working. However, if you don’t make enough money to pay the agency back, then the agency will cater for the loss and you won’t have to pay back the money from your own pocket.
Another thing that agency offer to a model is referred to as a “Guarantee”. A Guarantee is a substantial amount that a model is expected to earn regardless of the amount earned by the model. When a model becomes familiar with the agency’s clients or becomes a well-known model with excellent tearsheet and experiences in markets like Milan, Paris, and New York, a model’s guarantee have a price ranging from $20,000.00 to $30,000.00 US Dollars and more. For top models, they can receive guarantees of at least $150,000.00 US just for a two-month work.
Parents Can Travel With Younger Models
Parents are allowed to travel with a model who is under 18 years or who may be leaving her area for the first time. Agencies have already become accustomed to this and it is never an issue. However, parents are expected to cater for their own accommodation expenses and travel fees and may choose to stay for the entire duration or for a short period.
Market Is Busy All Year Round
Some modeling markets are ideal for business for a particular duration of time. However, the Singaporean market is always bubbling and can be busy all year. It has been discovered that the summer months are always full of activities because there are lots of high school students who visit the place, so it is advisable to travel during fall, winter, or spring to book more modeling jobs.
