Business Modelling

business modelling
To be good at business modelling means you don't particularly have to be a certain shape or shape, and any ages can apply. The brief will probably state a particular age group but mature models find work quite easily in this genre. Maturity can be a great asset for this line of work, as can the one stereotypical looking model, perhaps those more suited to a plus size work. The aim is to portray genuine office workers, in all types of situations, perhaps promoting photo copiers or office equipment in an exhibition hall maybe. If you are lucky it could be work for an advert on the TV. It's all about looking realistic and becoming an office worker for the day, but it can also mean pretending you are an employee for a business, having to be the face for the company, greeting customers and new clients at an open day for example.

All ages can do it but let's not count out teen models too. It's usually all about promotional work here, acting to become an office worker for the day, handing out flyers at a trade show, or demonstrating how new office equipment works in a real life situation. Businesses hire people like you to impress new clients, to show off business equipment to potential new customers, but generally be the brand for them for the day.

Business modelling may mean standing around on your feet all day, a bit like real-life in the office world! If you look good in a sharp suit, male models are often required. There are jobs within this genre, to model office stationery, chairs, or clothes and pretending to be something you're not for the day. Businesses need models to promote their products, their office stationery or a photo copier perhaps.

Catalogue work could mean trying to appear businesslike and studious, teenagers trying out laptops or IPads and having photographs taken to feature in a magazine. Perhaps you like TV work such as appearing in an advert or as a film extra on a set. Age usually isn't important, unless it's a particular type of look your model agent requires. It certainly doesn't mean you need to fit the strict height and weight regulations for fashion and catwalk work, unless its office wear on show on the runway - then maybe this may be a bit stricter with height, weight, shape and size.

Even then, clients generally need real looking people, not the stereotypical stick thin fashion model. Business workers are everyday people, and models need to look the same. So whether it's wearing pinstripe suits, ties, shirts or shoes, perhaps office equipment is on the agenda for today. Photographic modelling could mean a couple of hours work trying out your business model work, but getting fantastic photographs to put in your  portfolio too. Business modelling could suit you sir and it should be considered if you think you look the part. Have a chat with your model agent and see what they think.
