What I think of the model is whether I think of familiar “models of magazines” or “show models walking on stage with clothes …”
but recent Japanese models are only professional models There are many things up to the “salon model” which many employers appoint an amateur from a “reader model” which is also called “DO KU MO” which can also be a part-time job for students.
perhaps! You may be a model too?
First of all, what kind of work do you have for the model in Japan …
1 What kind of work is available for models?
a lot of work is available for models in japan for example
Steel model, fitting model, show model, magazine model, salon model, model companion and so on.
What kind of occupation is required?
First of all,
Let’s introduce it by category
■ Steel model is work centering on photography. Taking pictures with new product and clothing from highend apparel companies ,which is be advertised on the websites and magazines.
skilled and unskilled professionals photographers are welcomed if you can that take that perfect shot or pose of a model. It is exactly the skill of a professional model that a lovely photograph complete. For a models height that is less than 170 cm more than likely, you will be very useful as a steel models because the show model is required to be more taller.
■ Fitting model work consist of Ａpparel Brands trying on different types of clothing, jewelry etc.The model can have a general size or average size body shape.
■ As for show models.This work consist of fashion shows,magazine models and television. famous celebrities have started as show models especially in the recent years.Although tall models are required as a show model you need to have great posture, walk with strong confidence and have integrity. .
The show model receives detailed guidance from practice of walking to posing.
As for “fashion show” and “hair show” “what you show” is important, how you show depends on the show. For walking, not just walking on the stage but also full turns and half turns, techniques are asked how to show costumes and others at the stage in a cool way. If it is a model of a leading brand fashion show in Japan, it is likely that men will be around 180 to 195 cm, women around 173 to 180 cm tall are often adopted.
■ The Magazine model is not a thing that I have learned especially about walking and posing, but amateurs frequently apply for free without belonging to the office. It is more like an amateur girl than an expert model, rather than “something like a long slim body with a pre eminent style” and “a more individualized look like an eye catching eyes” a friendly woman wants to imitate her It tends to be chosen by emphasis on whether or not you can dress it.
In “Ｍagazine model”, transportation expenses and photographing are not paid bye the Model Agency.This will be an out of pocket cost for the model.
■ The salon model refers to a model that is posted on a hair catalog or a hairdresser’s website or magazine.
Basically it is work flow to cut, color, treat, and shoot at a hair salon.
Recently, there are many requests not only for photography but also hair show and movie shooting.
Not only professional models, female college students, office ladies, housewives and a wide range of girls are active as salon models. There are also many models that became famous from salon models.
■Ｍodel companion is a person who has a superb visual quality among women who are called companions who distribute receptionists and brochures at exhibitions and various events. In short, it is good to consider it as an intermediate level between the hostess and the model.
Even if you don’t become a model, it is an image that the person who is 165 cm tall or over is good and the one with good visuals performs as a hostess.You are guaranteed to get paid for that event.
■About Free Model In this way, there are various occupations of the model, but have you heard of the word free model?
A free model is a person who does the job of a model,but not belonging to the office.
In recent years, it seems that there is an increasing number of things to get done by advertising ourselves on SNS and my blog, getting inquiries directly from companies searching for models.
However, the point of caution is that there is not any guarantees there!
Ｂeing a free model can be a dangerous thing,I hear so many story from models!
about what other company say to them as a free model.
Also there was stories about work,but contact from the other side ceased abruptly!
Or, salary was not paid! It can also be said that.
Moreover, when I actually heard that it was a studio, it was one of the apartments
It can be a scary feeling or situation.
The model belonging to the office is the office that guarantees such things,
As I thought, I also recommend people who belong to the office to protect themselves.
■How much is the salary of the model？
This is based on experience,visual, etc.
If it is a job like a magazine model it said from 10,000 yen to 50,000 yen, etc.
It is not uncommon that there is a 5-fold difference in the same job.
In the show model, we responded to fittings and rehearsals on a different day, even 5 hours on the day even if it was a show of only 2 hours on the day, based on rehearsals, makeup, waiting time and so on, That’s why it’s said that 300,000 yen is included in everything, and if it is a popular model it is said to be 200,000 yen.
■ Measures for people without model jobs
Like this, salaries are different even if you do the same work, people who have plenty of jobs.
The job of the model is also a popular business, it is the same sense as a talent.
In addition, because it is popular because visuals are good enough, there are many things that are not so.
