I am a beginner, I am passionate about modeling but I don’t know where to start!
Every agency will attest that they have to deal with this statement at least twice every single day. We have decided to do something about it!
Velour Model Management started as a training agency, our core mission has always been to educate and equip models for the modeling industry. We have done this consistently for the pasts 4 and a half years, and we are proud to have helped many models pursue their dream. We cannot sign every model in Kenya, but we can help the ones who want to be helped.
Modeling does require passion, but industry knowledge and skill are very essential for a solid career. There is a big difference between a model and a working model. Working models have learned the difference between clout chasing and paper chasing.
PUT IN THE WORK!
Ignorance and laziness will kill your career before it even begins, unfortunately, this is the predicament for numerous upcoming models. Many models want to get booked from the comfort of their living rooms, do the least, and get paid for it. The industry is becoming more strict and clients are demanding a lot more. If you are wondering why the same models keep getting jobs, agents can trust them and clients love them. They know what they are doing and they do it professionally
