WE HAVE ANSWERS

 

Q. "I've always thought that models are tall and thin. Isn't that true?"

ANSWER:  To do modeling assignments you do not have to be tall and thin.
 

Tall and thin does help a model to do a bit more work. However, certainly in no way, if a model is NOT tall and  thin, is she restricted from getting  modeling bookings. As a matter of  fact, most models are not tall and thin at all.
 

Models in music videos, on beer posters, print ads, hair magazines, hair  shows, editorial work and much more,  actually range in height and dress  size.  


Besides, "chocolate" people  are built differently.  

Full lips  are standard for a Nubian Queen. 

To  add to it all, thighs and hips are  what "defines" a chocolate woman as  being "chocolate".

Do's & Don'Ts

 

The Do's & Don'ts About Modeling

1. Realize that this is a venue to earn additional annual income. Thus, this is a business.


2. Be serious about getting into modeling as a "side job". Most of our models actually

    do not have a desire to get into modeling. They model mainly because it brings in

    additional household income.
 

3. Procrastination has no place here.  


4. Be professionally organized. When you arrive for your interview, do have a

     notebook and pen on hand. Have your questions  written down ahead of time.  


5. Be "teachable". If you feel you know everything you need NOT apply

     with OLM THE AGENCY.


6. If your attitude has "altitude", do not call us. We do not accept stuck-up models.  


7. Memorize the modeling "terms" we review with you. It is "your" job to know these

     terms and definitions. This can make or break  you getting a booking.  


8. When given an appointment DO NOT CANCEL. Do arrive on time or early.  


9. Return our calls promptly/expeditiously.  


10. Understand that "free" work:
   a. keeps you down to earth.
   b. trains you to do a better job.
   c. always leads to "paid" work.

WHAT IS MINIMUM WAGE FOR A PRINT AD CAMPAIGN BOOKING?

 

Minimum  wage for a print ad (when hired from an advertising agency) is $1,500  for a half-day booking. the pay for a half-day booking is often higher but $1,500 is minimum wage for a print ad. A half-day booking is a 3 to 5.5 hours of work, thus a half-day.  Private companies who do not use a advertising agency might pay less than $1,500 for their own print ads. Most print ad campaign bookings pay between $10,000 to $50,00. However, there are a few print ads that pay up to $100,000. *Print ad campaigns are bookings for ONE-DAY bookings.
