Application as Plus Size Model in an agency: Polaroids

Do you need an elaborate and great photo shoot? Absolutely not! If you want to apply as a model for the very first time, you don’t need an elaborate photo shoot with a photographer, all you need is a mobile phone, daylight and a bright wall. Because a model agency wants Polaroids of you! Polaroids were taken with an analog camera back then, they show the model naturally without styling and without make-up. Today, model agencies still call these types of photos Polaroid. Basically, it’s about:

Standard photo for models with daylight: portrait + full body

Wait until you have good daylight so you don’t need an additional electronic light source. In the daylight your skin is best to see, also everything is well illuminated. In the second step you need a mobile phone and ideally a friend or your mom or dad. You stand with black pants and black top as well as high heels with your back to the wall and take a full body photo as well as a portrait. Here is a little tip, take a few pictures and choose the best ones afterwards. For the model agency you have then usually only 2 photos or 3. One is a full body photo, the second is a portrait and ideally you have a second portrait with a smile. The other photos, you should keep very small, without facial expression. So you can remember, for a Polaroid you don’t need any styling, no make-up, no pauses, no facial expressions. Just you, as you are!

Outfit: jeans, top and bikini

Now comes the last step, change your outfit from black jeans and black top to a black or white bikini, ideally, if you have a red or yellow one on hand, that’s okay too. The important thing is that you don’t have any big patterns or designs that might distract from you. Even as a curvy model you should feel 100% comfortable in a bikini! You are beautiful the way you are! The phrase sounds simple but is 100% true, confidence is everything! Every model, especially at a young age, has parts of their body they like less. It’s the same for everyone. However, as a model growing up, you should develop enough self-confidence to look past such small issues. After all, you are a role model!

Joy, self-confidence, charisma and temperament

You embody joy, confidence, charisma and temperament. After we have checked off the photos and the self-confidence, only come your measurements! Of course, we as a model agency do not expect you to measure yourself to the millimeter, we are interested in a rough estimate, especially of your height, which you can measure relatively easily. For this we need your clothing size. Ideally, but not important, chest, hips, waist, shoes, jeans.

That’s all you need for your model application, not so difficult or? That’s exactly why it’s worth becoming a plus size model! Especially in Germany you have very nice customers and can collect many great memories for your whole life.

Customers in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne… Online shops and advertising

As a plus size model you usually do exactly the same jobs as any other model, from fashion shows to lookbooks, online shops or even advertising campaigns and speaking roles in commercials. So as a model you can work your way up, from your first jobs in showrooms or as a test model to online shops, social media shoots for Instagram, Facebook or even first shoots for YouTube. All the way to advertising campaigns and later even commercials that might not only run in Germany but throughout the entire German-speaking world, Europe or even worldwide.

When you see yourself on a billboard for the first time or in a commercial in front of your favorite Youtuber, you’re going to be very excited! Not only will you collect references and clients, but you’ll also meet models, some of whom you’ll even become friends with. Some young models even go abroad, work there for a few months and then come back. It’s a priceless experience that you can only gain in a modeling agency. If you are skillful as a model on Instagram or YouTube, you can no longer just work as a model in front of the camera but also as an influencer. Some of our models are now not only working for the classic online shop, but are also on YouTube for large shoe manufacturers and present new collections or make launches for large beauty products.

As a curvy model, you might as well be a role model for the next generation or your generation. If you’re diligent and post frequently, regularly on Instagram or post YouTube videos, you can quickly take it much further! Brand ambassador jobs are just as interesting. If you’ve worked long enough and accumulated enough credentials, you may eventually be signed on by a brand as a brand ambassador!

Step by step to an experienced model and ambassador

As a brand ambassador, you then stand with your name for the quality of the company and the company gets a bit of your positive and modern image. A win-win situation for both sides. As a brand ambassador you are not only an advertising face and stand with your name for quality, sometimes you are also booked for moderations at trade fairs or in video clips. It’s a very special challenge when you don’t just have to work for a picture, but directly for a few hours, in a live situation with many people. Experienced models can do it! Exactly this should also be your way and your motivation, step by step to become a professional model.

Our model agency helps you every step of the way, from the first professional test shoots with top photographers to build your model portfolio, for the first jobs, to travel support and as a constant contact for your career. We support you not only in your career, but also in school, because education always comes first!

While you’re still in school (read more about school & modeling here), you’ll be doing fewer jobs at first, but that’s normal since you should be focusing on school. The degree will help you your whole life! You’ll need good written and spoken German, especially if you’re going to have speaking roles in commercials or moderations, your English should be good so that you can talk to international clients on a photo set, mathematical basics should be good so that no one can rip you off, sports are important so that you have a good figure later on… and so on! School is irreplaceable and therefore the be-all and end-all for you if you want to become a model. As soon as you’re done with school, you’re ready to go!

Model Casting Super Size and Curvy

Can I also come to a normal model casting? You are very welcome! Our castings usually take place every 3 months in Berlin, Cologne or Munich. Soon we will also have our first casting in Hamburg event, to a date you are also welcome as a plus size as a model.

Is there a difference between live auditions and applying online?

The odds are exactly the same! Only… with the online application you save yourself and the agency a lot of time. Nevertheless, live castings are always a lot of fun! That’s why we also organize our dates regularly, the procedure is always the same.

You present yourself with a variety of models, usually there are 50, 100 or 200 models. Like in TV model castings, a 3 to 4-member jury sits in front of you. You introduce yourself briefly, do a short walk. If you have already worked as a model, you show your model book. Such a Go See usually takes 2 to 3 minutes. This doesn’t give you much time to introduce yourself, but enough for the jury to get an impression. As models are always judged on their looks first, the assessment is relatively quick, unlike, for example, influencers or experienced models, with whom you go straight into jobs where the fees are higher.

As a model that is at the beginning of his career, you expect in principle the highest professionalism, of course you can make a few mistakes but it should not be too many. As a model you earn relatively good fees even in young years, sometimes as much as others earn in a month, with only one job. You should also always be aware that you are replaceable. As in any profession, people are replaceable, so you should always be friendly and give your best.

Plus Size Models for online shops and product photography

Fashion is sold through emotions and feelings, two aspects that you can emphasize particularly well with a model. Joie de vivre but also fun with the product that first-class posing with facial expressions and gestures, with every single product image. Especially in product photography for online shops, the experience of models plays a crucial role, as they create significantly more outfits in the hour or on the day. The more outfits the photographer can produce for the client, the more the model will be paid. A mutual win-win situation.

The just mentioned joie de vivre can bring Curved Models at jobs excellent. Because they have a rather everyday lifestyle, at the same time pay a lot of attention to your skin, hair, figure but on the diet, they are absolute role models for many and partly in advertising much more authentic. Of course plus size models, although they are closer to the typical woman, do not displace the classic high fashion model, yet they are a very exciting addition for online shops, product photography but also lookbooks. You can also feel their energy on set, through their friendly nature, as well as the uncomplicated cooperation. Shootings for online shops are therefore always done with a lot of passion and experience. Look forward to the results!

Curved models for commercials

Just like in online shopping, curvy models are also becoming increasingly popular in commercials and movies. Whether it ends up being aired on TV or streamed on YouTube as an ad, curvy women are popping up in more and more video clips. This also gives you a more interesting and international look.
