Model management in Dubai is no different to any other country. Special agents represent models and get them work ranging from photo shoots to special promotions. Models being managed in Dubai include babies, children, and young men and women, all of which are amongst many models that one agent will represent from their models list.
Models are listed online in Dubai so that models are visible to international fashion people and are always found under the models tab. There the agent will list a model’s portfolio, their photo gallery of shots, their work experience if any and their profile, including the model’s physical statistics (height, weight, eye color, shoe size, hair color, etc.), location and contact information details. The agent will manage all changes in these areas for each model, including additions and deletions.
The agent will manage a model’s portfolio by showing shots of the model in varied poses and types of fashion clothing. These will be tasteful, professionally produced and giving potential clients the chance to view the model’s look and ability to pose, as well as their abilities to represent client fashions and products to appeal to consumers. These may give the model work on television, in movies, in music videos, at fashion shows or in fashion spreads in fashion magazines. In fact, many Dubai models are being sought after worldwide and a few have claimed world supermodel status over the years.
Each photo will provide a copyright, name of the model and agent and a detailed description. The agent will update these periodically and remove any old shots that no longer apply.
The model’s work experience is not un-similar to a resume for any other job, except that it reads more like one for a contractor because most of the work done by models, even in Dubai, is short shoots. The agent will ensure that all relevant experiences are kept current, including the location of the job, the name of the client, the description of the type of work done, the dates of the work, and any special details that will help entice interested parties to hire the model for other work in the future.
Model management is a detailed and important part of the Dubai model management scene. This type of management allows models and their agents to break into the international fashion industry like never before, thanks mainly to the Internet. Models are not guaranteed international work, but if managed properly by the top agencies and Dubai model managers, they can go on to productive and fruitful careers. Though many will never reach supermodel status as with any other world model, the chance for superstardom is higher if their portfolios, photo galleries and profiles are managed professionally.
Dubai offers many varied types of model managers who deal with babies to adults. They can handle all ranges of work, including the more explicit variety if that is what a model chooses to get into. Most have excellent international reputations and though there are a few disreputable ones, all in all Dubai is making a name for itself in the model management industry.
