Can You Make A Living As A Model?
Milos is a model from Belgrade/Serbia. We had a chance to talk to him and learn more about what is it like to be a model, what is the most valuable thing modeling made possible for him and how much money is in the game.
Hello, Milos! Tell us more about you?
Hey hey. I’m Milos, brother, friend, great cook and wine lover. I live in Belgrade and I come from all around. By heart I’m a preschool educator, by work hours I’m a business coach and all the time I’m fashion model.
How and when did you enter the modeling industry?
I was scouted by a slovenian scout when I was 17 and quickly after I ended up in a serbian agency.
Do you consider yourself a professional model?
A pro model is the one who actually makes a living by modeling. Since I became independent a while ago, I could say I’m a pro model.
Can you make a living as a model?
That’s a tough one. Serbia is a really difficult market for high fashion models. That’s why all Serbian pro models go to Milan, London, Shanghai and make a living there. A good thing is that development of Stock Photography is at it’s peek at the moment and stock models can really make a living by modeling.
What is the most valuable thing that modeling has made possible for you?
It’s all about traveling. If you are good enough, you will travel the world. I met many designers, worked with famous models that are followed by millions on Instagram, and the most important thing is that I met so many great friends from all around the world, that will host me wherever I go. That’s the most important for me.
Do you recommend this carrier to others?
Modeling is such a great and fun career, I would definitely recommend it to everyone, even to those who never thought about it.
For the end, can you share a couple advices for newbies?
First of all, see how comfortable you are in front of the camera. Have some of your friends take some pictures of you, so you could see how you would react in front of the camera. Even if you have some problems, that’s easily fixable, don’t worry. And don’t be afraid of competition. They will always be around but still, there’s enough job for you. Relax and enjoy.
