I absolutely agree, I was scouted in London twice when I was 14 and the second time when I was 16 but I wouldn't have even dreamt about dropping out of school and pursuing it fulltime, especially since I would have had to move. I just began modeling here in Finland. How long did it take everyone here to get their first jobs after starting at a modeling agency?

all of you that went to japan when you were like 15 or 17-- what did you all do about school!? i'm so confused. i miss school some times for work but never like a month!
One of my friends went to Asia for two months a little while ago for modeling while school was still in session. She had all of her homework e-mailed to her. She worked pretty much every single day, yet she still managed to keep up in all of her classes!

Seriously?!? That's a ridiculous amount...

I think the photographer Richard Vaa'llje (pronounced 'valve') coined the term, 'jershy.' It basically means versatility not at the expense of staying exactly the same.

Modeling doesn't pay much for an Asia model, but most of the Asia Model in Asia is model/actor/singer/host, modeling is just a step for they to get into entertainment, and "background" helps a lot, like a model who has been in business for years and suddently become "the most beautiful women" in her early 30s, this is almost unheard in North America, Why? check out what her dad and mom did for the President.

i know who you mean.....
I totally agree with u!
people in asia don't focus on modeling.(except for Japan)........
they care more about the gossips (models who hang out with some celebrity
or some Big guys)
and the models are actually "model/actor/singer/host" people.......
as u said above...

ok, it isn't so much the agency rather the jobs the persons getting, and then it really depends. For example the top girl, like Karolina Kurkova, Natalia Vodianova, Gemma Ward and Daria Werbowy have 6 figure day sums for editorial, and get paid millions for campaigns. eg. Gemma got $20 mil for the Obsession Night ads. But then it goes down quite a bit.

For parades in Australia they usually get $300 a show in Sydney, but then the top models get paid A LOT more than that...

Mags like Vogue will generally pay better than others, but it really depends. Once you've got the exposure and a good agency like IMG, Women or DNA (for the girls) you'll get paid a lot more

i dont know where you got 20 mil from, but i dont think it was that much. i heard from different sources more along the lines of 1 mil. which is still a huge amount.
oh and a lot of the time they get hardly anything for editorials....

i agree with petal80, $20 million sounds really high. and i always heard that models don't get much for editorials and do them more for the exposure than the money.

but top models do command a lot on the runway from what i hear. $10,000 for the uber-models? idk if thats right. anyone can confirm?

I hear sometimes even top models get paid with clothes by the top designers... or a combination of half and half sometimes (clothes & money) to do their runway

I think Naomi Campbell for example did Anna Sui's debut collection and she only got paid with clothes from the collection

I heard that you can basically pay off your college fund if you're one of the girls in the runway for Dior Couture...
