The Ways Modelling Agencies Train Their Models

Modelling agencies all over the world will require different things from the models they sign, and those needs will come in different forms depending on the type of modelling they’re focusing on. Here are the top ways Brisbane Modelling Agency train their models to ensure they are as successful and valuable as possible to their brand.

1) Theory

Models often come from all over the world, and with that comes a variety of cultures and expectations. One way modelling agencies train their models is through cultural awareness. This means the agency will give basic information about the country’s culture before sending a model to work there. For example, if you’re going to be working in France it would be important to know that French people are very formal, so greetings should be said with a handshake and your social interactions should be formal as well.

2) On the Job Training

Models typically only have on-the-job training when they are hired by a modelling agency. This generally includes a course in runway walking, etiquette, and makeup techniques. It is also important for models to know how to take care of themselves and maintain a healthy lifestyle. They should be aware of their nutritional needs, exercise regularly, and eat well balanced meals.

3) Webinars and Podcasts

In order to be successful as a model in the industry, it is important to know what to expect and how to prepare for the journey. There are many resources available to help you train yourself, such as webinars and podcasts. These resources can offer you insights into topics such as beauty tips, fashion trends, and runway walk techniques. Webinars are generally hosted by modelling agencies or modelling professionals with experience in the industry.

4) One on One Coaching

Each model is different and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to modelling training. A one-on-one coaching session with a trained professional can help you learn how to succeed in the industry. Doing this every few months is recommended, but it also depends on your age, stage of career and time spent modelling.  If you are starting out, we recommend at least 3 sessions over six months, or a one-hour session per month for the first year of your career.

5) Books

– Communication – How to read people and understand what they are telling you or not telling you by reading body language, facial expressions, tone of voice, etc.

– Confidence – How to have self-belief in your abilities and how to be confident in yourself when walking into a room or onto a runway.

– Self-Management – Learning to manage your emotions so that they don’t get the better of you and impede on your performance.
