Written by:

When you think of a “model” what immediately springs to mind? The girl with the flawless skin on the front cover of a glossy magazine, or perhaps a skinny size zero waif strutting the catwalk of Fashion Week, or maybe the hunk with a six-pack advertising one expensive aftershave or another. These are of course all accurate perceptions but they only represent a minute percentage of models plying their trade. The reality is, anyone can become a model for free, whether they are one or one hundred years old. Pick up any newspaper, magazine, or flyer and you are bombarded with advertising, be it for napkins or baby food through school wear and holidays to furniture, electrical goods, mortgages and retailers.

Do not forget over 50′s insurance and holidays, stair lifts, and chairs that tip up electronically, the list is endless. What do all these advertisements have in common? They all feature models, people who have been paid to have their photograph taken. You will see that the majority of these models are ordinary looking folk, in fact you might think they are nothing special and you could do that, well you would be right. In the majority of cases advertising agencies are looking for Mr or Mrs Average to promote their goods.

They are trying to make their goods appealing to the mass market, a market which is inhabited by short people, tall people, fat or thin people, not the gods or goddesses of Vogue or GQ. It is true that the international supermodels are earning top dollar and jet setting from Milan to London and New York, but make no mistake; the earnings can still be very lucrative for the more everyday work. A model in the UK should realistically expect to earn anywhere from £200 to £1,000 for a day’s shoot, plus expenses. There is also the opportunity to travel, as many ads are shot on location, and for this you would be paid for so many days which include travel time, plus all your hotels meals etc.

In these harsh economic times a lot of people are looking to supplement their finances, but do not have the resources to invest, so how to become a model for free is an ideal way to not only provide a lucrative income but also have some fun. Whether you are young or old, beauty or beast, there is an advertising agency on how to become a model out there somewhere looking for you.
