Over the past decade, alternative model agencies have become all the rage for new models. It was once the predominate agencies that dominated the fields like Ford Models and Elite,  now we see boutique agencies that have an appeal to alternative talent that are ranking higher when it comes to landing the fresh face talent seen in major editorial campaigns.

What is an alternative modeling agency?
An alternative agency is nothing more than a modeling agency that specializes in a specific look or style. While they have been around for many years, it is not until recently have they become all the rage in scouting for new face talent.

How do you become an alternative model?
The question is not really how to become an alternative model it is to figure out if you are already an alternative model, and if seeking a boutique agency that specializes in your look is the right fit or not.

While many new models typically think their journey starts in entertainment by contacting every major agency, it is essentially the last thing you should be doing when you are starting a career as a model. As a new face model it is important to focus on building your portfolio, experience as well as attending casting calls.

The digital world has changed the face of models, literally. Many brands, including the world-famous Balmain, has turned to computer animated models for some of their campaigns. Sounds crazy right? Not from a business sense. A model that is signed with a major agency can garnish hundreds, if not thousands of dollars of commissioned pay for a brand, so companies looking to scale back as the decline of retail has effected the whole industry, cutting cost and using CGI models as the new faces could be the new norm. Will they stay longer than 2019 and into 2020 and beyond, who knows…. One thing for sure is that they won’t age a bit!
