9. What are the requirements for being a model?  Is there a minimum or maximum height, weight or any other requirements?

There are many different types of modeling categories. Each modeling category has differing requirements, however, each individual audition, job or opportunity is unique in itself.  There are no specific requirements to be a member of Flaash.COM, however, it is recommended that prior to applying for any industry opportunity, one should review the pre-requisites of the position to ensure that you are qualified.

The primary modeling categories are: 

  • Children / Commercial
  • Editorial / Fashion / Fitness
  • Personal / Print  

Modeling is open to both males and females of any ethnic or national background. While some modeling categories may have very specific personal attributes or requirements, others may be relatively generic or open to all. There are models in all age ranges.  Two of the most popular categories are Editorial/Fashion (i.e. runway and fashion magazine models) and Commercial. Editorial/Fashion has very strict requirements for height and weight, however Commercial is a very broad category with requirements that are less restrictive. 

Industry standards dictate some basic height requirements for the two primary modeling categories, Commercial and Editorial/Fashion.  Those are:

Commercial Modeling: (USA)

  • Female: 5'6 to 5'11
  • Male:  5'9 to 6'3

Editorial / Fashion Modeling: (USA)

  • Female: 5'8 to 6'1 and 90 - 120 lbs
  • Male: 5'9 to 6'3 and 120 - 170 lbs

Please be mindful that these are general guidelines and as stated previously, model personal attributes may vary by project.

 

10. What companies are recruiting new models and talents from Flaash.com?

We are continually partnering with agencies, talent scouts and talent brokers across many industries and geographic areas. These are established modeling agencies with a proven track record that actively look for new talent on Flaash.com. Each agency recruits models for every type of modeling category, including runway/fashion modeling, fitting, commercial modeling and talents including actors, singers, musicians, dancers and more.

When you are contacted by any of our participating agencies, you can be assured it is a legitimate agency, that already represents other models and talents and can help you move your career forward.

New agencies are continually signing on to scout on our site. Throughout the year, Flaash.COM gives you more chances to be discovered and make the process safe, easy, convenient and inexpensive.

 

Here are some guidelines to help you make the most of our services: You should have at least 3 photos, having more photos is recommended as it gives an idea to a scout from different angles and in different clothes.

 

For MODELS:  


Composition:


  • Photo 1: A close-up face shot: your portrait, your face should fill most of the frame of the photo.
  • Photo 2: A three quarters to the waist up
  • Photo 3: A full-length picture with tight/form fitting clothes that defines your body shape

 

Style:


  • Light make up or no make up
  • A simple hair style
  • Preferably no smile in at least two out of three pictures
  • No accessories like hats, glasses or anything that will distract from seeing you
  • Be alone in the picture
  • Make sure the photos are not blurry, we need to be able to see you well.

 

Techniques:


You can have the pictures shot either indoors (with a flash), or outdoors (natural light is great) but whichever you choose, make sure the photographs are neither overexposed nor too dark. The lighting should be evenly lit to reveal details like bone structure and skin quality. Extreme shadows or highlights can hide features that scouts need to properly evaluate you. Note that shooting in direct (mid-day) sun can be tricky; you can often get the best results by shooting in the morning or late afternoons. The best background is a white or neutral wall. Otherwise, keep it uncluttered. The eye should be drawn to you, not the puppy in your arms or the girlfriend holding your hand! The subject (YOU) should fill most of the frame of the photograph. Even for the body shot, have the picture shot as tight as possible, so your head is at the top of the picture, your feet are at the bottom.

 

For TALENTS:

Please make sure to put couple of videos showcasing your talent. The more videos you put, the better it is to scout your talent.

12. How do I get modeling jobs?

Modeling jobs are usually provided by modeling agencies or casting agents. When an advertiser wants to find models for an ad campaign, a brochure or a TV commercial, it asks a modeling agency to provide models that fit the style of the advertising. This is the role of your agent, to ensure that you get the right type of modeling jobs, and this is why it is important to have an agent or agency represent you.
