What is the difference between modeling and performing?

It can be hard to distinguish between models, actors, or dancers. Although there are some similarities among these professions (acting, dancing), it’s usually considered that appearing in a film or TV show doesn’t count as “modeling”. Also featuring in an advert on television isn’t generally counted as modeling either due to appearance not being critical for this type of work. 

Besides, most of these performers never speak and convey through words during their performance which means they aren’t required to provide any personal opinions about the products they represent. In contrast, models often maintain a form of control to a much higher degree over what happens with their image.

For someone to be considered a “model”, they must have an agency, which represents them. This typically starts with finding an agent who matches your look or style that can guide and actually get you into the industry. From there, you would need a selection of well-captured photos to begin building up a modeling portfolio so that clients can see how well their clothes would fit on you while looking amazing at the same time. Once this has been done and signed by agencies, then it’s a lot easier for new job opportunities to open up in the industry.

What does a model do? 

A model’s key role is to promote products visually by either using or wearing them in order to convey a certain image to consumers. Usually, models work and collaborate with fashion designers and cosmetic brands, a common example would be working as a runway model at fashion shows or advertising clothing in magazines, billboards, and TV commercials.

Here’s a list of commonly asked questions on models:

How much time does a model get between outfit changes?

This depends on the clothing and makeup. If applying makeup takes up a considerable amount of time, photoshoots will also take much longer. Models usually start out doing photo shoots that can last up to several hours. Afterward, they will try on newly arrived dresses before heading over to the hair and make-up artists. 

How much do models get paid for participating in fashion shows, photoshoots, or commercial ads?

They can make anywhere from ₹ 1000-50000 a day. The average rate for runway shows would be around ₹ 1000 per hour while magazine sessions pay somewhere around ₹ 2000 per hour. For commercials, this could go up to even just under ₹ 3000 – 500000.

These numbers will change based on:

  • Where you are modeling
  • The kind of modeling you are doing
  • Type of agency you work with
