He has worked for five years as a professional model and can survive on his wages. But that’s not for a lot of male models to play. Female models earn significantly more. It sometimes feels like a totally different industry, what it sounds like.
The ratio of the salary of a fashion show is often divided in such a way that the male models one-tenth earn of the female models. So were the female models during a recent show of Prada around 1000 dollars, while the male colleagues $ 125 on their account were deposited. That female models to ten times more money than male, is no exception.

The power of Instagram
Where in the past an interesting portfolio of well-paid jobs binnenhaalde, is now the Instagramprofiel of great importance. According to Sipos try male models as much as possible followers so that casting agents would notice and book for a job. That happens today also, increasingly, with female models, who, because of their loyal band of followers important shoots or shows are being offered.
“When I started was the talentenscouts my portfolio and appearance the most important. But then came Instagram. They all want to know how many followers you have, and the more followers you have, the more you get paid, ” says Sipos.
