DRAWBACKS OF A MODELING AGENCY
Nothing comes easy. Enrolling at a modeling agency has both its pros and cons. But like every industry comes with its ups and downs, the drawbacks of the modeling agency only help one work on it. As a model if you are thinking to sign up with a modeling agency, you should also be aware of the drawbacks they face. But at the agency these drawbacks only keep them going and work harder towards their goals. Here is a list of drawbacks they could face:-
Models must be aware that they deserve the pay according to the amount of time they put in. At times, the hours they work, the traveling is all gone to waste. Also they are sometimes not considered an adequate amount for the innumerable contracts and assignments they get themselves into.
Maintaining a body image and identity
A modeling agency may demand you to maintain a body image with respect to height, weight, etc. This asks you in turn to change your lifestyle. This will always take a serious toll on your time, money and effort. The need to have thin, lean bodies is a trend. But remember, plus size models are also breaking their way through in the fashion industry.
Stressful work environment
Whatever type of model you are the shoots can be frustrating. Long hours, innumerable pictures and trying out different poses can be really exhausting. You will have to shoot in any circumstance whether it’s freezing or too hot. The job is totally unpredictable. You can be called any minute, and you must be available. The job can get monotonous and boring eventually, if there is no variation.
Relationship with clients
At times, clients may not satisfy with the quality of services coming from the agency. This could be due to mistrust, miscommunication or other issues. At times, it could be due to personal issues. Clients may sometimes lose confidence in a particular agency or times they just leave for a matter of change.
Do not excel quickly
Agencies do well depending on the quality of work. The process is slow. They have a variety of projects to work on. Ideas take time to flourish. Competition is always the issue in a business. Due to this, the functioning of an agency may slow down.
