Applying for the established models section :

Requirements :


If you want to be part of the directory, here are the requirements:

1. Must have 10 or more professional pictures of yourself.

2. Provide :

  • biography including
  • list of experience (if any)
  • your birthday
  • where you reside
  • where you are willing to travel

  • what your limits are

Image requirements

There are certain image qualities that is necessary before you can submit them. Just because someone takes your pictures, it does not automatically make them a photographer. A lot of unqualified photographers pretend to know what they are doing and end up giving you terrible images.

1. Images should be clear!

2. Image sizes should be close to 600W x 1000H, anything lower than 500W will automatically be denied. This means DO NOT send in thumbnails of your images! (example)

3. Make sure your images have a good resolution, there is no point in sending in pixelated pics!! (example)

4. If you have the really big image sizes, i prefer that you send them in their biggest size which I will resize. Do not resize them yourself, pics tend to lose their resolution when you do not do it properly. If this means you have to send them one by one through emails, that is fine too.

Questions and Answers


Q: Why do I need 10 images to apply?



As an established model, you should have MUCH more than 10 images, but we made that a minimum requirement.


Q: What do you mean by "professional images"?


Professional images means, photos taken by a real photographer. A friend taking pics of you because he/she has a good camera doesn't necessarily make him/her a photographer.


Q: Do I need experience to be part of the established models?


Yes. You need to have had experience as a lead or principal model in a music video by a known artist or have been featured in a popular magazine. Online magazine MAY be considered if they are known.

Music video experience does not include amateur artists no one has heard from before.


Q: Do you accept anyone? Any type?


HHVM still wants to retain a high quality in the models they feature on the site.

As for the "kind" of model, we do not discriminate against any size, height or ethnicity.

Everyone is free to apply.


Q: Do you accept international models?



Yes. Although it is much harder for international models to get gigs, we offer featured profiles to models from anywhere in the world.


Q: Is HHVM an agency?


No. We do not provide casting calls and book you for anything. If people want to book you for any events, they will contact you directly through your booking info.


Q: *Why is it important to choose a "model name"?


Having a model name is how you will be recognized in the industry. Most models will choose a nickname that is easy to remember, instead of their real name, especially so that they can differentiate from their normal daily lives.

(if you later decide to change the name there will be a fee of 15$ so please think about it before submitting.)


Q: How long will I be able to stay on the site?



You will be featured on the site as long as the site is online. The only way to be off the website is to ask to be removed.



Q: How do I update my profile?


Any updates have to be sent to hiphopvideomodels@gmail.com, once we receive it, we will make the changes or add-ons as soon as we can.


Q: Why are there ads on the profiles?



As HHVM gives exposure to models, this service may be given for "free" but it still needs to receive some sort of revenue to uphold the site. No one does anything for free. These ads are necessary to be able to pay for yearly hosting fees, marketing, and updating the site continuously.


Q: Can I update to a bigger package in the future?



Yes. You may do so by sending an email to HipHopvideoModels@gmail.com.


Q: Can my profile be featured on the first page of the established models?


No. First come, first serve basis.


Q: How long will it take for my profile to be created?


This will depend on the amount of profiles that are waiting to be created. If there is a waiting list, you will be told an approximite time frame and once created you will receive an email with the link towards your site.


Q: I sent in my application but never got a reply, how come?


If you did not get a reply, it is because you didn't send in all requirements. If you did and were not accepted you would have at least gotten an email saying you were not accepted.
