If you are a commercial, real-life, high fashion, fitness or advertising model, you are likely to work all around the country. One day you might find yourself working in a studio, club or stadium, the next you might be outside on location, whether that’s in the street, on the beach or knee deep in mud. Your guess is as good as ours; it really depends on your client’s brief.
If you are an in-house model (a model who has a fixed contract for a prolonged period of time with a brand) you will tend to work in the same environment, or at most, travel with the brand. You will find yourself working in showrooms, workshops, at press venues or at fashion shows.
London is the hub of modelling but models can find work throughout the UK and Ireland. The majority of work will be around the bigger cities so if you live in a small town or village then you would need to be prepared to travel.
Hand in hand with these various project locations, models are expected to travel a significant amount of time. Whether this requires hopping on and off of the tube all day, traveling around the country or jumping on a plane, prepare yourself for living out of a suitcase away from home.
