The Model Book – The book to become a model #topmodel

As a modeling agent, I naturally have to deal with a lot of questions in my daily work. The questions are: “How big do I have to be as a model?”, “Why are minimum sizes required?” or “Do photoshoots cost money for my model portfolio?”. Then there are also very specific questions from models in agencies. This is about special terms such as “options” or “buyouts” or complex topics such as travel planning.

The Model Book contains many questions, many answers

For all these questions I have written an extensive work, in which young models quickly find a red thread, for the entrance into their model career. You’ve heard you look good before? Or phrases like “You should model!” If so, then maybe this book will be just right for you. In THE MODEL BOOK you learn as a new model everything you need to model. The book does not only show you which mental requirements you have to bring along as a young model in the advertising world, you also learn everything about photographers, test shootings, shows, jobs and castings.

“Well I am basically enthusiastic about the book. It is not a patent recipe for success or says ‘This is how it has to be’, but it gives a good and clear overview of all important topics. It defines, in its opinion, all important “technical terms” from the industry, as well as procedures. How does a “Go-See” work, what should be in my model folder, Where is the difference between a parent agency and a boutique agency?

For the entry and the price an absolute must-have for models, but also for photographers who want to know more.”

“Like the other book “Become a model”, this one convinced me of the same quality. This one is written in a little more detail. Have you always wanted to be a model and have the perfect measurements right from the start? Then this book is just right for you! Here you’ll get a great guide to what you need to know, from the perfect appearance in the agencies, how you behave at casting and much more. Super entry to the ascent :-)”

“One day my dream is to be a big model who is allowed to run on the catwalks of this world and is photographed by big magazines. However, like many other girls, I probably did not know how I would achieve these goals and where the clues would lie. The author not only explains how to reach your goal, but also gives a realistic (!) insight into the world of models and agencies. I think this is very good, because many people see the model business as a land of milk and honey and lose themselves in it. In addition to this insight, tips on healthy eating are also addressed. It is always emphasized that you don’t have to starve yourself for the model job or only eat cucumbers etc., but you can also treat yourself to a little something to stay happy. The main thing is to eat a balanced and healthy diet. But I also found the selected beauty tips very helpful. From this book you can not only get an insight into the current fashion world, but also learn something about the general fashion and model history, which I find very interesting (and it increases the educational value of the book even more).

The book has also helped me in matters of self-confidence, charisma and enthusiasm of other people. From the tips and tricks you can cut off a thick slice of any area and integrate it into your everyday life. Although I had hoped for a few more pictures, Stephan Czaja does not only give great inspirations, but motivates and gives strength for the possible future career as a model. Thank you!!”

“In the beginning I was skeptical if you could learn something in this book. Since I often work with Newfaces as a photographer, I was looking for a book to help them get started in the world of modeling. Thanks to this book, models are perfectly prepared for what’s to come. The author really goes through all the details of model life here and packages the whole thing in a cool design. Also the single graphics and markings I have never seen before in a book, which gives the book its own design and as far as one would read through the notes of a typical booker.
From casting to Polaroids there’s everything you need to know.”

“The book is awesome!
Lots of useful information, tips from an insider of the industry and a great layout! The book opens the whole view on the world of the models to one. From the beginnings, like applications at agencies, poses at shootings and basic knowledge for models up to the professional model life everything is to be found what one must know. The best thing about it – it was written by the agency boss of a big model agency and if he doesn’t know how this world works, who else? I got the book as a birthday present from my mother and I really have to say that it helped me a lot. I read it completely in 2 days and just at the start of the new GNTM season it inspired me to try it out in the model world. I can recommend the book to anyone who is interested in the world of fashion, models and fashion!”

The Business Book

Becoming an entrepreneur is not difficult, but being an entrepreneur is very difficult. Already knew 9 of 10 startups failed in the first 5 years. When I am on the road during my lectures, this is often the first step to make it clear to the young entrepreneurs that every person around them has to fail if they want to survive as entrepreneurs themselves. The reality check for entrepreneurs is pretty brutal. Nobody remembers the pyramids that fell. Everything talks about those who are still standing. It’s the same with entrepreneurs. Failure knocks on the door faster than you’d expect. This book is the result of my experience as an entrepreneur, the lectures and the reflection of the audience. More about: The Business Book.
