CrowdModel is a modeling agency that provides support to individuals through enlisting the attention, cooperation, and monetary support (thus, the crowd part of the term “crowdmodel”) to bring new and unknown wannabe models (the model part of the term) to modeling catwalk. Similar to America’s Next Top Model reality TV show in which a number of women compete for the title of America’s Next Top Model and a chance to start their career in the modeling industry CrowdModel does provide the same but our models are judged by the crowd (thousands of people) not by a small judging panel.
Practically every little girl has fantasized about being a model in a fashion show, strutting down the catwalk wearing the latest fashion by a well-known designer, with all eyes on her, and of course, making a good living off the large salary that comes along with being a successful model. How would a young girl, or anyone else who wishes to become a model, go about having those modeling dreams come true? Most likely their first stop will be to a modeling agency such as CrowdModel. A modeling agency represents fashion models and also invests money to develop models through training, getting test shoots, doing layout portfolios, and creating composition photo cards for models.
In addition to helping develop models, CrowdModel modeling agency also finds work for models. CrowdModel does this by presenting the models (models selected by the crowd) to the organizations that need the work of models, such as designers, photographers, and advertising agencies. Our modeling agency allows the model to focus on modeling by taking care of the business end of modeling which also includes booking jobs, negotiating price, billing for jobs, and collecting payment.
In order to keep track of which clients hire which models, our modeling agents use booking departments. Model booking departments also advertise, meet with potential clients over lunch, and do cold calls to find work for our models.
CrowdModel modeling agency requires fresh faces on an ongoing basis, so our modeling agency may advertise through local phone directories or through other means in order to attract potential models such as Internet. CrowdModel modeling agency may either hold a casting call (where models show up by appointment), an open call (where a specific time is set by the agency for models to show up to be considered for future work), a go-see (where a client requests to meet with a specific model and sets up an appointment), or by getting dry calls (where models send unsolicited comp cards, or composition photos) to an agency.
Fashion shows and fashion weeks are big deals in the CrowdModel modeling agency. Fashion shows are runway events put on by fashion designers to show off their upcoming line of clothing. A fashion week is a string of fashion shows put on by various fashion designers, and fashion week is a model’s opportunity to get noticed and put in place a network to land big contracts. There are two fashion weeks per year. One fashion week showcases spring fashion collections and the other week showcases fall collections.
It is true that the modeling world favors models of a certain look, most typically tall and skinny models. However, this is not to say that people who do not meet this criteria are barred from entering the modeling industry. There are advertisers who want to have the average consumer represented in their advertising. This opens the door for the more average-looking person to become a model. Our modeling agency represent the more “every-day” looking model, and commercial models actually far out-number conventional high-fashion models. CrowdModel agency basically make it possible for anyone who wants to be a model to become a model with the support of the crowd.
