Frequently Asked Questions

ANSWERS to those questions about that you may have about modeling.

WHEN DO MODELS GET PAID? Depends on the assignment. Sometimes models are paid in cash and/or sometimes models are paid by a company check either from the company that hired them and/or from us. Most times, we negotiate the del and collect the payment from the company that wants to hire you BEFORE you are assigned the job. Once this is done and you complete the job, your payment will come directly from us in the form of a company check that can be cashed at any local bank.      



ARE YOU A MANAGEMENT COMPANY OR A MAGAZINE?  Our name is "Hot Chick Magazine" and we are the OFFICIAL 'Hot Chick Magazine'. However, Hot Chick Magazine is a full service media and entertainment company. We provide most services that are correlated to success in the entertainment industry ... we are MUCH MORE than models.      



DO MODELS GET A COPY OF THEIR PICS? Yes and No!!! When a model shoots for ANY magazine, it would be absolutely foolish for that magazine to give the model a copy of the pics that they plan to use for the magazine. When models get upset because we don't give them a copy of the pics? We clearly understand that we have been dealing with someone that knows ZERO about the business. If a magazine gives a model a copy of the pics from her photo shoot, when (yes when) she posts the best ones to her social media pages (to boost her own popularity) those images are now 'useless' to the magazine and has hurt the sales and profit of that magazine. However, as an act of professional courtesy, we 'DO' give models copies of the 'Behind The Scenes' pics so that she walks away with memories of her experience with us.      



DO YOU FIND JOBS FOR MODELS AND IF SO, HOW DO YOU DO IT?  The popular 'buzz' work is 'job'. So, if we are using the buzz (popular) word then yes; we find jobs for models. But, because we are NOT a employment agency the 'LEGAL' term for what we do is find 'Gigs' and short term 'Assignments' for models. how do we do is? Well, we won't EVER share our secrets. But, let's say for now that independent people and companies contact us when they are in need of talent, e.g.: models, actresses, dancers, rappers, singers, etc. that are SERIOUS about their work. We meet with them, we learn their needs, we negotiate the terms and then we look through our catalog to identify the talent that's best qualified for the job. Once that's done (if its you?) we contact you and offer you the gig/assignment.    



DO YOU MAKE SURE THAT MODELS GET PAID FOR THEIR WORK?  When a model (or any of our talent) is loyal to us and abides by our proven formula for success. Yes, we absolutely make sure that they get paid. How? because we initially step in, met with the client, negotiate the terms and collect the fees IN ADVANCE so that by the time (you) are hired for the job, all you do is go to the site, do the job and 'Hot Chick Magazine' pays you (with a company check) because we've already been paid by the company that approached us to hire you. However, if (and yes it often happens) you decide to deviate from the 'Hot Chick Magazine' policy and negotiate terms and agreements ON YOUR OWN or with a representative NOT employed by us ... and you do NOT get paid? You will receive zero help from us in getting paid for that particular project AND you will be terminated from any and all future works with Hot Chick Magazine.    


DO YOU MAKE SURE THAT MODELS ARE SAFE WHEN THEY WORK?  When a model (or any of our talent) is loyal to us and abides by our proven formula for success. Yes, we absolutely make sure that they are safe. How? because we initially negotiate the terms of any and all travel and safety when we negotiate the deal. If we send you on a gig or an assignment? We give you crystal clear instructions, directions, contact persons and all other exacts and specifics as they correlate to the assignment. If we send you on a gig or an assignment? Depending on the size of the project, we will have a private car drive you to and from the location; we will also have a member of 'OUR' security team accompany you to and from the assignment. Again, depending on the size of the project. If the location of the project is an area that 'WE' don't feel is safe? We will not send you, even with security, we will not send you.   



WHAT IS AN EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?  To us, here at ‘Hot Chick Magazine’, when a model signs an exclusive contract with us. This means that she is legally contracted to us. She ONLY works with us. Yes, she can make extra money doing gigs and assignments with other companies; but ONLY if those gigs and/or assignments are approved by us. When a model signs an exclusive contract with us, we use our time, our resources, our connections and our money to establish and grow her career. She is signed to that contract for a certain term. The length of the term of agreement depends upon the amount of money and time we will invest into building her. Why? So that whatever time, energy, resources, money, etc. is put into building her … we (the company) have the opportunity to profit from investing into her.    



WHAT HAPPENS IF A MODEL BREAKS HER CONTRACT AFTER SHE HAS SIGNED? To be absolutely clear; if a model maliciously breaks her contract after she has been signed? We will sue her! – For a model to receive an exclusive contract from us means that she has EARNED IT. Tremendous amounts of time, energy and steps have to go into the decision to sign a model to an exclusive contract. Once the decision has been made to exclusively sign her, next is the investment of resources, money and connections. Therefore, should a model conspire (and yes it has been unsuccessfully tried before) to maliciously use our brand as a stepping stone to what she may feel is a better choice? Her decision and action is GUARANTEED to get her sued. – GUARANTEED!
