What is Modeling? It’s more than a pretty face.

Modeling is more than a pretty face. It’s to simulate a consumer who represents the brand. To put it simply, a company hires a model to advertise their product or service. Advertising comes in many forms. When people think of modeling, many assume that you have to be very tall and very thin. While that is the norm for editorial models, who frequently work on runway shows and high end fashion lines, many models are actually commercial talent. Commercial talent is everything except editorial modeling and that represents over 90% of the models you see on TV and print today. There is a huge push for alternative models, which is a model with a unique look or feature.

There is a huge push for real people casting, as well as alternative looks.

Models come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds which we fully support. Watch the Latitude Talent Webinar on the Rise of Alternative Looks in the modeling industry.
