How to find a good model agency in Hamburg

You want to become a model? If you are looking for a reputable model agency in Hamburg that can represent you in your new career, you can find my recommendations for model agencies in Hamburg here. The classic way is still the best! As a model you should look for an established model agency. There are not only big model agencies, also smaller model agents and model bookers have good contacts in the industry and interesting jobs. It is important to find out who can help you in the media industry and who not. As in any industry, there are of course also black sheep.

The most important tip at the beginning is, don’t pay money! Serious model agencies don’t want any money from you. If you meet an agency that tells you that they will take over your management for a fee of a few hundred euros a year (advance payment), be careful! Serious agencies only work on commission. In Germany this is usually 20%.

Don’t worry, in Hamburg you are in luck, there are many good and serious model agencies here!

What do model managers and model agencies actually do for models?

First, I want to explain to you what a model agency does for you as a model. You could also ask yourself the question, why should I even give agency commission? The most important reason is the following: An agency provides you with contacts. But an agency mainly provides you with serious contacts. They provide you with well-paid jobs and they make sure that you don’t get left out when it comes to fees and rights of use (buyouts).

Many have the dream of the “top model” or “supermodel” the idea that they stand in front of a camera, get paid and then are seen everywhere. But how exactly and when and where…? As a businessman or businesswoman you should always ask yourself the question, how much money will be earned with my face? An agency is not only there for contacts, it also takes care of the fair billing of usage rights to the customers. Here you can always see three variables:

Buyouts and usage rights for model jobs

Rights of use are always limited in terms of space, time and media. Why is that? If you have a photo shoot and your footage is later used in a national campaign (only for online media) it is definitely something different than an international campaign that runs on multiple channels, is printed, hangs on billboards and runs in the opening credits of movies. Therefore, it matters if the images are only used for 3 months in a fashion online store or for many years in an image campaign. It is also important whether the images are only used in Germany, in Europe or all over the world. In addition, you have to think about which media are supplied, it is only print media or are also shot video material, which can then be seen for example in the cinema or on TV.

  • Model managers provide you with serious contacts and well-paid jobs
  • Model agents negotiate rights of use according to time, according to place, according to type of medium

These complex questions about acquisition, offer and billing clarifies your model agency for you. You can fully concentrate on your job as a model. Because there is more to “being a model” than just good looks. You have to practice your facial expressions, you have to be able to act a little bit if you want to be successful in the long run. Also important, you must always maintain contacts! In addition, of course, there is also sport and nutrition. Modeling is a real full time job! Once your career really takes off, you’ll also have four trips. That will rob you of extra sleep. Then you will be glad to have a management that supports you.

As I said, you are lucky that you live in Hamburg! Because there are so many big advertising agencies in Hamburg, there are also many model agencies here. Hamburg has always been an international city, even in the past the seafaring united all nations here. Even today Hamburg is a colorful place and an important part for the media world. Many of the absolute top agencies are located here! My recommendations for Hamburg, I have here for you.
