Gary runs the agency and is responsible for dealing with the day to day model management and liaising with clients.

Do you have an office for castings?

No, as a small agency we operate The Model Hub from the comfort of our own homes - this helps us keep our overheads low and as we do not have any need for a central office location (for the moment).

What is a freelance model?

A freelance model is not employed by any particular agency, instead the model operates as their own business finding work for themselves and developing their own portfolio. They may also act as a supplier and work with various Freelance Model Agencies, such as The Model Hub, who help them source additional work and develop their careers further.

What is a freelance model agency? 

A freelance model agency deals only with model's not exclusively signed up and contracted to another agency. All successful applicants to The Model Hub are welcome to apply and work anywhere else, thus increasing their chances of building a strong and diverse portfolio. 

Do I have what it takes to be a model? 

Everyone is different and every agency seeks a different look or characteristics, however the best piece of advice we can offer is prepare for rejection and don't be afraid of criticism. If you're strong enough to take the negative side of the industry, then chances are you'll make a good model.

What sort of work can you do as a freelance model? 

Exactly the same type of work that a model signed exclusively to an agency may receive.

So you'll have opportunities to take part in fashion shows, paid and TFP photoshoots as well as various promotional and wedding events.

What does TFP mean? 

Time For Prints ... This is where no money exchanges hands between a model and photographer. The model will instead receive copies of the photographers pictures to use in portfolios, etc. 

How much money will I earn as a model? 

There is no definitive answer to this question as the reality is you may earn nothing as a model or you could go on to be one of the countries top stars, able to command your own premium rates.

Our advice to all new models is to treat it as a fun hobby or small pocket money business. This approach means you'll not be disappointed when the large pay cheques and shoots on tropical beaches never materialise.
