Client FAQ

Congratulations! You’ve just posted a job on theright.fit. This is no time to rest up because the world needs to see your brand so keep posting jobs when you have a creative urge to get your vision out to the world. Keep an eye on your profile by checking in on your theright.fit account regularly as applicants will be in touch to offer their services. You will have the option to communicate directly with each applicant privately in the message centre to help make your final decision.

Once you’ve decided to go with a particular talent you have the option to select them via your private messages, under the ‘Decline’ or ‘Book’ options. Once you’ve chosen to book your talent you will be notified via an email to confirm. Once you have confirmed booking you can continue to communicate through the messages centre. We encourage you to keep conversations in the message centre for your protection. 

The beauty of theright.fit is in its simplicity. We’re here to facilitate connections between brands that deserve to be heard and talent that deserves to be seen. This means that once you have chosen your talent for a job it is up to you to make magic happen. Keep an open and honest dialogue so you can ensure your talent is working towards the same end goal as you and reflect the vision you have for your brand.

Yes! We understand there are a lot of moving pieces when it comes to locking in a date, time, location, talent and crew for your project. If you have posted the job details, you are able to log back into your theright.fit profile and update/amend as necessary.

theright.fit is a platform that takes the stress out of casting, booking and paying talent for your important project. Like all online and professional businesses we require credit card payment at the time of the booking.

Please refer to “When do I have to pay the talent” in the Client FAQ section.

Please refer to “When Do I Get Paid” in the Talent FAQ section.

Once you’ve decided to go with a particular talent you have the option to select them via your private messages, under the ‘Decline’ or ‘Book’ options. This will notify the talent of their booking request via email. They will then visit the message centre to either accept or decline the job. You will then receive an email notification to let you know when the booking request has been accepted.

Once you have confirmed booking you will be taken to the payment centre. If this is your first booking, you will need to enter your credit card details and pay a $25 holding fee (the $25 amount will be returned in full after the job booking). If this is not your first booking, we will automatically pre-authorise the credit card with a $25 holding fee. This holding fee will be returned into your account, in full after the job is complete.

We encourage you to keep conversations in the message centre for your protection.

We love feedback! Once you have successfully completed the job, we encourage our clients to give feedback to our talent by rating & providing their feedback via the site. Of course we understand that after a job all you want to do is get home and put your feet up after a long day ‘in the office’, so in case you miss this step, we prompt you with an email 8 hours after the job.

It’s important for you to complete the review (feedback + ratings) for each of the talent booked on each job you have posted so (1) our talent can improve on areas if they need to (2) our clients can improve on areas if they need to (3) both talent + client profiles are boosted within the site’s search engine the more ratings / feedback you give and receive. It’s a win-win for both client and talent!

theright.fit is an online marketplace for creative talent; with client availability requests and job bookings made easy at the click of a button, we do recommend a minimum booking period. It’s ideal to give talent you’d like to confirm for your shoot as much notice as possible, though at the very minimum 48hrs
notice prior to the job commencing. This gives them enough time to respond; prepare their schedules, transport, wardrobe, etc… ask you any questions if needed, and also to avoid any possible last minute dramas and panic. If you haven’t confirmed talent 24 hours prior to your shoot, we recommend moving the date and giving the office a call to assist you further: 02 8310 6731.

That’s the beauty of theright.fit, you can post as many jobs as you like. A number of clients have reoccurring jobs – and will often have 3 going a week, each week. It’s totally free so you should post as often as possible when you’re on the lookout for new ways to promote your brand.

Clients will be charged a flat rate of 2% + 30 cents on all Credit Card transactions. This includes international & Amex transactions.

With hundreds of creatives on theright.fit platform it’s so easy to connect with individuals who can turn the sparks of your ideas into raging fires that sweep around the world. All you have to do is post a job that outlines your vision then wait for applicants to get in touch – it’s really that simple. In order to attract the right applicants though, rather than the most applicants, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Job Title: The best job titles are those that catch the attention of the type of talent you’re after quickly and give a little insight into the type of job you’re planning. For example, ‘Female Model required for bohemian beach shoot in Sydney’. This title immediately lets applicants know what is required and will ensure you are contacted by those who suit your job posting, not just those looking for work in general. In short, the goal for your job title should be to get a talent to click on it so they read more about the opportunity and get in touch.

Job Photos: Ever heard the expression “A picture paints a thousand words”? Well on theright.fit it’s worth even more than that! Adding images of your brand, previous shoots or inspiration pieces will help your applicants get a feel for your vision and ensure those who reach out are doing so because they want to work towards your goal, rather than just work in general. Ultimately, your attachments are the first impression of your brand and will help you stand out and get noticed to make sure the right.fit’s premium talent want to work with you over everyone else.

Job Details: We do build a team of the best and brightest at theright.fit, but they’re not mind readers. Adding a depth of information to your job details will define your expectations for potential applicants and ensure you get the type of creative you want and need. The more specific you are with job details the higher quality and more relevant the applicants will be. In short, don’t make applicants guess if they are right for you, instead spell it out. For example, if you only want tall male models with tattoos or influencers with over 30,000 followers then make it clear.

Click on ‘Manage Jobs’ to see a list of all jobs you have posted, with the most recent active jobs at the top and completed jobs at the bottom. Each job will show an overview of your brief as well as the number of talent who have applied, the number of talent who have attended a casting, the number of talent who are unavailable and the number of talent who you have booked. You will also see a scrolling list of all the applicants down the right-hand side of the screen which allows you to direct private message them.

 

Posting a job with us is free! Simply click on the white button in the top right hand corner named “Post a Job”. You will then be taken to the jobs posting page where you can outline the details and requirements of the job.

Enter the job details – This will be the first thing potential applicants see so make sure your title is accurate and covers all key features of the job you are about to post. For example, female model for fashion shoot. You will also have the chance to select the type of talent your job posting targets. Do this to narrow down the type of applicants you want. For example, if your job requires an influencer with 100K fans – you tweak the job setting to be relevant to ONLY influencers with 100K fans. Yes, it’s that simple!

Enter the job status – This will allow you to set the visibility of your job. Choosing to limit the job posting to yourself (as a draft), to all talent (public) or to the PRO package talent only (private) can be edited following the successful job posting. 

You also have the option to invite talent to your job. To do this, set the job status to private, visit the talents profile, click on the ‘check availability’ button, then, from the dropdown menu select the job you wish to see their availability on.

To get the best results from your job posting, all you need to do is be as clear and concise with your brief!

Theright.fit is at the forefront of innovation in the entertainment and modelling industry so we’re not an agency. We simply connect brands with exceptional talent to push creative boundaries. As such there are no terms and conditions to adhere to and no contractual obligations. You should consider any talent you choose to work with as being a freelance employee of yours, so you’ll be able to set out any T’s and C’s in your job description.

We understand the nature of the entertainment industry is last minute and that sometimes you’ll need a lot done in a little time. Theright.fit has two ways to help you get what you need quickly – using our strengths and using yours.

Feel free to contact us at any time leading up to the shoot to request help. Not only do we have a support team ready and willing to work towards your end goal but we’ve also got the industry’s best talent at our disposal. So, if you’re strapped for time or just can’t quite find the right individuals reach out to us at [email protected], whether it’s boosting your listing or suggesting talent, we’re here to help.

Once your job has been successfully posted on theright.fit we recommend you share it to your social media channels and/or send the brief in a broadcast email to your networks. We think sharing the love on social is a great way to get industry recognition. 

After the job is complete, you will have the option to leave a rating and review on the talent you worked with. This will cover the three areas of professionalism, performance and profile likeness in a 5-star rating system. You may also leave a short, written review covering your time working together, this helps to boost the best talent and makes it easier for brands to find those who have the most to offer. So whether they were great or need a little more help, let us know!

Public Liability Insurance is held with the director or production company of the job position that you’re applying for.

A test shoot is a collaboration between a Photographer and a Model testing out a concept or idea to produce images that they would both use in their portfolio. This exchange can also involve Makeup Artists or Stylists who would also like to build their portfolio in a certain area (for example: if a portfolio is commercially strong the shoot may be to elaborate on high fashion or beauty). There is no exchange in funds as all parties benefit from the collaboration.

Test shoots routinely involve amateur models and photographers who may want to try out some new equipment or concepts. also known as TFP (Time for Prints) or the very old school TFCD (Time for CD).

Model Test Shoots – In the world of model agencies, a test shoot generally refers to a new model working with one of the agency’s approved photographers. This is done to have the model start building his/her agency portfolio and to see if the model has the talent and the personality to succeed in this industry. In this case, it’s basically the same as a TF* shoot in the sense that the model receives images but it’s up to negotiation if the model will release her likeness or if the photographer will be paid. Usually the model’s likeness is released for all non-commercial purposes and the photographer charges a discounted rate as determined between the photographer and the agency.

Commercial Test Shoots – In commercial photography, a test shoot is usually considered is preemptive test before the actual photo shoot without an exchange of images. These test shoots are usually done several days or weeks in advance of the actual photo shoot for the photographer to determine if he has chemistry with the model or if the model can deliver what the photographer expects her to. A large-scale commercial shoot can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars per day, so having to work with a model who can not deliver as asked may be a pretty big waste of time and money. Usually it only takes 30 minutes to an hour to determine if the model is suitable. Sometimes the model is paid for her time, but mostly it’s just considered some sort of job interview.

You’ll be able to add a range of details to your job posting before it goes live, but none more important the brief. Your title should make them curious about your brand while your brief makes them envious of anyone who gets to work on it. It should draw in the best talent by telling them a little about your message or product as well as outlining every necessary detail the applicants should know. Consider adding information about the following to your brief before you post your job;

  1. The age bracket you are searching for
  2. The ethnicity of your desired talent
  3. The height, weight and build of your desired talent
  4. Any physical traits you’re looking for, e.g. hair colour, eye colour, tattoos etc.
  5. Any information regarding your brand. Let applicants know where you came from and what goal you have in mind for the job.
  6. Any information regarding the type of shoot. This may include details on what to expect, from timing to location as well as the speed of completion expected.
  7. If you are offering a TFP shoot explain why it will benefit applicants. Include information about the range of exposure or ability to network to ensure talent is motivated to work with you.

The best thing about posting a job on theright.fit is that you have the control to set a budget that suits you. There are also no limits on the fees you choose to offer. When it comes to your fees you will have four options from which to choose.

Flat Fee – This will be the total fee following the completion of the job. This is a common choice for jobs tailored towards influencers and bloggers however you can decide if this fee structure is best suited to your needs.

Paid per Hour – This will be the per hour fee for each individual talent you decide to work with. This is a common choice for short shoots involving models and relevant creatives however you can decide if this fee structure is best suited to your needs.

Paid per Day – This will be the total fee following each day’s work on the project. This is a common choice for mid-length shoots that require a longer investment in talent however you can decide if this fee structure best suits your needs.

Unpaid – This means there will be no payments made between you and the talent you decide to work with. Unpaid shoots, or TFP (time for print) shoots are designed to give both brand and talent equal benefits. By testing out a concept or idea to provide images that boost the portfolio of both parties the end goal should be to have everyone feel like they finish the job feeling more experienced and capable.

 

We pre-authorise the card listed on your theright.fit profile 24 hours before the job is scheduled to commence. Your card is charged on successful completion of the job to ensure the talent is promptly paid for their professional services.

If you are seeing your job postings reach their deadline date without suitable applications there may be few reasons as to why.

Not allowing enough time to find the right talent can leave your job postings unanswered. As an online marketplace that enables brands and talent to connect it’s inevitable that daily life can sometimes get in the way so a minimum booking period is a good starting point for any job posting. As a minimum, we encourage at least 24 – 48 hours however the more time you give yourself to find the right applicant the more likely you are to be successful.

Not offering competitive rates can leave your job postings unanswered. We’d all love to get a little more for a little less but when it comes to the entertainment industry you really do get what you pay for. Offering fees that are competitive will encourage the best talent to reach out which makes any initial investment worth it when you end up with work that will blow your audience away.

Not taking the time to fill out your brief properly can leave a job posting unanswered. If the details in your job are vague then you won’t be attracting the talent you’re after. Make sure your brief is accurate, informative and covers everything a client should know. If you are providing attachments or links make sure they are good quality and represent your brand in the best possible light.

General Member FAQ

We’re not an agency, we are a marketplace that connects talent to jobs. All the smart technology is built into theright.fit to make it super streamlined to find jobs and to book talent, without the hassle of a middle-man and the agency fees that go with it. That’s the beauty of it; we’ve changed the model. 

As we’re not an Agency (please refer to “Are you in Agency”), there’s no conflict if you are represented by an Agency.

That being said we’re all about setting the benchmark in the industry and promote transparency in all we do. If you have an Agent, or an exclusivity contract with another talent or creative company where you think there could possibly be a conflict, we suggest you keep them in the loop. Again, we’re not an Agency, so there shouldn’t be a problem.

You can’t see who has viewed your profile. To improve your chances of being noticed on the website, therefore improving your chances of being booked for work; always ensure you are professional, punctual on jobs and maintain likeness to profile so clients can give you a 5-star rating. You can also upgrade your account to appear ahead of the pack on our website listing.

Go to ‘Settings’ and then hit “Remove my profile”.

Please ensure you definitely want to remove your account with us. You will not only lose your data & ratings, but we would be sad to see you go!

There’s never been a better time to be a brand in the entertainment industry. With social media facilitating talent to spread new products to previously closed off audiences and a range of new creatives breaking free of the previously rigid modelling agency systems there are endless individuals available at the click of a button to help your brand grow. With such potential for success comes the personal responsibility for you to get the most out of your status as a valued member. We want you to kick your goals and then some, so here is our guide to getting the most out of your brand profile once it’s up and running.

Tell a story – When you see an end goal in your mind it’s easy to rush through and post a job in an attempt to bring it to life quickly. Instead take some time to tell a story in your brief. Let potential applicants know where your ideas came from and where you hope to take them. Making the talent feel like a part of the project who are valued and needed will encourage them to give their best work, which benefits you every time.

Keep your focus on theright.fit – It sounds like a sales pitch but it’s actually a word of advice. It might seem simpler to work directly with talent outside the right.fit platform but we strongly encourage against it. The right.fit is set up to help brands find the very best talent. By connecting with creatives through us you’ll reap rewards like constantly updating talent lists, safe and fast payments, and ongoing support. Plus, when you work through theright.fit you have access to proven talent, which means no more flaky creatives who leave you feeling empty at the last minute.

Give and receive – Getting the most out of theright.fit comes in two ways, first you give, then you receive. Give competitive industry rates that attract the best of the best. You truly do get what you pay for so by offering rates that bring on board experienced and professional talent you’ll end up with a quality finished product that does your brand proud. Receive reviews from the talent that will stay on your profile and act as incentive for anyone else thinking of working with you. It’s the circle of success, first you give, then you receive, then you repeat.

Theright.fit was created to bridge the gap between inspiring brands and amazing talent.  Whether you’re an established industry figure or an up and coming brand looking to get recognised, theright.fit is your way to connect with the talent and the creatives that can spread your message, your product, to the waiting world.

There are generally height standards placed on runway of around 175cm and upwards for girls and 180cm and upwards for boys however, commercial and editorial can be flexible. There is no perfect height and it always depends on what the client is looking for.

theright.fit is a platform that gives talent the ability to connect directly with a brands. As leaders in this innovative field we take away the hustle and grind of networking daily and leave you to focus on the jobs that matter to you.

It’s a simple process – improve your profile, apply for jobs, put in the hard work, repeat.

Getting your profile noticed is the single most important step and while there’s no single formula for success, theright.fit has a few tips and tricks to make sure you stand out from the crowd. It’s about being seen and being heard by potential clients so they can get you seen and heard by the world.

2. Be your Brand – The most successful profiles are those that sell you as a brand. This starts by understanding the type of creative you want to be. The first thing to do is make sure all your portfolio pictures are showing you in the best light. A picture paints a thousand words so no matter how talented you are or how much you have to offer, poorly chosen portfolio pictures will consistently set you back. Choosing the right pictures will depend on your background. If you’re a make-up artist, then focus on your work rather than yourself. Show potential clients your range by adding pictures from shoots you’ve worked on. The same goes for photographers. Sell yourself by choosing pictures that showcase your diverse skill-set rather than focusing on one area of strength.

Remember, when a client reaches out to you for the first time they will be taking a leap of faith. The only thing they can base their choice on is the profile you show them so draw them in and earn their trust by filling out your profile portfolio images to cover all aspects of your experience and personality.

2. Update your pictures – If you’re on our free package you’ll have 5 images to sell yourself to potential clients. For those who opt for the premium package you’ll have up to 100 images to really stand out and make the most of the constantly updated job listing. Whichever package you choose these images are vital so there are a few do’s and don’ts to keep in mind.

Do – Include professional images that represent who you truly are. These should include high standard editorial and commercial images. Let these images show your physical features clearly so potential clients can quickly identify if you match their brief.

Do – Constantly update your profile with pictures from jobs you have completed via theright.fit. Using these images will show clients that you’re professional and constantly evolving. As a result, it will encourage clients to provide you with more work.

Do – Include a clear headshot for any model profile. This image will be the first that the client will see and should market you on its own, your profile is there to convince them after your headshot has intrigued them. Ensure your headshots maintain simplicity under natural lighting and without background distractions.

Don’t – Include selfies or any images taken on your mobile phone. It’s important that your photos convey your personality but using selfies lacks the professional vibe clients are looking for. Note, we have a strict policy and will reject your application if you have uploaded these types of photos.

Don’t – Include images that are not immediately identifiable. A good picture should be direct with its intention. This means no images with watermarks. No images that are blurry or unrotated. And no images that show different physical attributes, for example, if several of your photos show you with different coloured hair. This is off-putting to potential clients. Note, we have a strict policy and will reject your application if you have uploaded these types of photos.

Don’t – Include ‘before and after’ shots or misleading photos. Clients want authenticity and transparency. It’s no good to use images that don’t show who you truly are. Being selected based on a misleading profile will come back to bite you, it will also affect your profile rating and chances for future work. Note, if this is a regular occurrence, we will take you off the platform.

3. Tell a Story – It’s a jungle out there team. With so many amazing creatives it can be hard to get noticed. Making your pictures match your bio is a great way to stand out from the crowd. Use your bio to let clients know who you are and what you stand for. Are you an award-winning make-up artist? A successful personal trainer turned model? An influencer who’s got a monster social media reach? You know how awesome you are but clients don’t. Yet. Talk yourself up and let your bio bring clients even further into your personal brand. Keep it sharp, to the point an free of grammatical errors.

4. Get high ratings

Clients have the option to rate you out of 5. It goes without saying, do a good job and you will be rewarded. Our algorithms are programmed to place profiles on the first few pages if they have a high star rating.

5. Give us a shoutout as you grow your social media

Our marketing team is always listening out for mentions on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The louder we hear you (through tagging us @theright.fit and #therightfit) the more likely we’ll give you a shout out in return. After all, if we don’t hear about you doing amazing things in the industry, we’ll just assume that you’re not doing anything!

We review all profiles daily. Profile approvals are approved within 48 hours of submission.

Your profile social media followings are automated from your feeds. As a result, you do not need to update your social media information on your profile.

All talent on theright.fit are required to be 16 years or older.

Once your profile has been approved you’re ready to browse and apply for available jobs. You can use the filter to narrow by state, remuneration, date, gender and more. This can help to narrow your search for jobs that suit you best. Make sure you’re applying for the jobs that match your profile to get the most out of your account.

Each job available will include:

Brief – This will include all the information about the job you’re applying for. Consider this the clients voice calling for talent so it’s up to you to listen and reach out if you think you can answer the call. Details posted will cover the type of shoot, expected length, expectations for the finished product, the use of final images, and any information about the job that talent should be aware of.

Wardrobe – This is the outfit expectations of the talent. This tells you whether you will be required to provide any aspect of wardrobe or if it will be provided by the client.

Hair, Make-up and Grooming Requirements – This is the amount of styling provided by the client. This lets you know what expectations exist on your end to arrive looking a certain way or whether there will be hair and make-up provided on the shoot.

Brief Details – This is the follow up information to the general brief provided by the client. Here you will see some of the more finer details such as; job type, remuneration, media usage, usage length, territories, dates, duration, job address, and date listed.

Remuneration – This is the fee you will receive following the completion of the job. This will be shown in three sections. Firstly, the base pay for the completed job. Think of this as the gross pay. Following this will be the two types of right.fit memberships that determine the net pay. Whether you are on a premium package or a free package will determine the net pay, with the premium option offering more lucrative incentives.

After signing up for an account on theright.fit you’ll have the opportunity to update and perfect your profile. This is an important step as your profile will be the first thing potential clients see when they’re looking for talent.

To create a profile, head to our homepage www.theright.fit. Click ‘Signup’ then select talent as your membership type. Enter your profile details (personal bio, look, resume, audio files, video files) Remember, this is your chance to really shine, so make the most out of your entries.

Once you’ve submitted your finished profile you’ll be contacted by a member of theright.fit talent acquisition team. This will be in the form of an email notification, 48 hours after submission. If your account has been successfully you will be added to the team. If you are unsuccessful we will offer expert suggestions on how to improve your profile and maximise your potential.

If we haven’t made it clear yet how important your portfolio bio is we’ll just say it one more time – your portfolio bio is everything!

A compelling bio is short and powerful. It should communicate who you are, what you do and most importantly how you can help others. This is a key part of a well written bio, because it moves the focus from you to the person who reads it.

Let’s look at the bio structure, it should consist of the following:

WHO: your name, your profession and passion
WHAT: your experience in that profession to date (e.g. genres, publications)
HOW: who you work with
WHERE: locations
WHY: what makes you unique, what is your characteristic, what is your working style

Call to action: it is a good idea to include a soft call to action to encourage a contact with you

If you need help we have prepared a template for you to fill in.

I am …………….. (name) ,……………… who specialises in (photographer/fashion/stylist/videographer/influencer/actor), with a passion for ………………. (your passion relating to your talent ). I work mainly in the fields of ………………… (2-3 genres) but really enjoy working in …………….. (2 other genres). To date, I have worked with ………………. (agency/photographer/publication). There I did ………………… (ad, campaign, video etc.) and had some photos published in ……………… (2-3 publication names, advertisements or campaigns). I am available for collaborations in ………………… (country/city) and can travel to other locations. I am …………………… (something that describes your talent) and I am/have ……………………… (something that describes your personality).

In addition, making the most of your allotted pictures can then turn a good profile bio into a great one. You can do this by adding complementing your bio with relevant photos so that it clearly tells the story of your expertise. We encourage you to use between 5-10 images from each shoot you have completed, without watermarks. Figure out what style suits your talent, i.e. natural headshots, fitness style, corporate images and so on, and add to your profile as necessary. 

To edit your profile image.

  1. Login to your profile
  2. Select edit profile
  3. Move images

We allow a community of creatives to connect with a range of brands across a variety of paid and TFP opportunities. As leaders in this innovative field, we take away the hustle and grind of networking daily and leave you to focus on the jobs that matter to you. We call it theright.fit formula for success.

We’ll send you regular updates via email notification when jobs are posted to the site that suit you. Once you’ve put yourself forward for the job, the client will review the list of applications and decide who to short list and/or book accordingly. If you are the talent booked for the job, you’ll receive an automated email from our website direct to your email – all you need to do is confirm from the email we send and you have the job. It’s that simple!

Your profile shows only the feeds from 1 Instagram account and 1 Twitter account (where you may have multiple accounts – personal or business, please choose the profile that will best serve you in securing bookings via our website). If by chance you were unable to add your Instagram or Twitter accounts whilst setting up your profile on your smart phone or iPad/tablet, login to your accounts from a desktop/laptop computer and try uploading again.

 

 

To ensure everything is ready to go before your profile goes live, your account goes through a review process by theright.fit team. Once this is completed you will be able to see your profile live on the site!

We are seeking professional photographers with an extensively developed portfolio. Our clients set a very high standard, so we are ensuring the profiles that are being approved are in line with the caliber of work our clients are looking for.
We are here to ensure that all talent on the site are receiving regular bookings, and in order to ensure this is the case, all talent & clients are required to have a portfolio that will make clients want to book them. A diverse range of commercial and fashion photography is recommended for the approval process. Refer below to “What makes up a strong professional set of portfolio images?”

Short answer, NO. It is a rule of thumb that disclosing personal information (via email, telephone of face to face), especially when you don’t know the person, is to be avoided at all costs. theright.fit is designed to make the booking + payment system simplified, stress-free, and more importantly secure. Your personal information is secured on our platform, and the disclosure of bank information, for example, will NEVER be required.

Where a client has booked and confirmed you via the theright.fit (ie. you know you’re 100% confirmed for the job and payment will be made automatically on completion of the job) a client may, in the instance of an Influencer/Blogger Job, ask you for an address to send product to. Use your discretion when responding; we strongly advise providing a business / postal address.

From time to time you may get requests to take work directly from the site without going through the normal theright.fit booking procedure. We call it the runaround. Three words of advice, don’t do it.
theright.fit is set up for you. To help build your profile and increase your rating for more bookings in the future, making sure you get paid straight away, all the info and reminders to make it easy for you, and, yes, your own safety.

Here are some helpful words that you can use when someone tries to get you to do a job from theright.fit, without using theright.fit.

Rating – Sorry, as I am trying to increase my ratings and won’t be able to do so if I take a job outside theright.fit It’s simple, just book me through theright.fit and if you could help me by rating me after the shoot, that would be even better. Thanks.

Every female model requires a good pair of strappy heels (no wedges), jeans and a fitted t-shirt. These essential items come in handy when going to castings. It also makes you look professional on jobs:

  • Nude pair of underwear
  • Strapless nude and black bra
  • Plain white or black top
  • Black or dark coloured denim jeans
  • Pair of nude and black heels
  • White sneakers

Every male should also have a good quality pair of jeans or chinos, fitted t-shirt and presentable shoes. If you have an interest in doing promotional work or event hosting, it is recommended that you have a tailored suit on hand.

If we haven’t made it clear yet how important your portfolio profile pictures are we’ll just say it one more time – your portfolio profile pictures are everything!

Making the most of your allotted pictures can then turn a good profile into a great one. You can do this by adding similar photos to create mini portfolios of your completed work. We encourage you to use between 5-10 images from each shoot you have completed, without watermarks.

Note, our maximum upload file size is 2 MB

Figure out what style suits your talent, i.e. natural headshots, fitness style, corporate images and so on, and add to your profile as necessary. You can alter the make-up of your profile pictures in settings by hovering your cursor over a new image and selecting ‘replace picture’.

After allowing theright.fit access to your social media account when you sign up we display your total followers count as well as a link to your active social media accounts.

While clients can’t see your personal information, they can interact with you in two main ways. Firstly, a client can reach out and direct message you in regards to any briefs they have pending. If a client reaches out to you it is because they see great potential in having you represent their brand.

Secondly, clients are able to leave ratings and reviews following any jobs you may have completed with them. Each review is based on a 5-star rating across professionalism, performance and profile likeness. Clients are also able to leave written reviews about the job you have completed which will be seen by other client prospects. By impressing clients and completing shoots that showcase your full range of talents you will build up positive reviews and encourage more work to come your way.

Congratulations! You’ve just applied for a job on theright.fit.

This will also be the time when communication shifts to the client. The client will be notified of your application and will look at your profile on theright.fit along with your social media statistics, reviews and portfolio. It will be up to them to decide whether to go ahead with you or not. Don’t stress if you don’t hear back right away as they may have many applicants.

If the client decides to go ahead with your application, you will be notified via an email from theright.fit to confirm. Once you have confirmed, the client will reach out to you via the message centre and start a correspondence. You will be able to communicate them directly to discuss any issues or questions in the lead up to the job. This is a great chance to showcase your professionalism and enthusiasm while making sure both talent and client are on the same page with the same expectations. If your application is not accepted, you will not be notified but don’t stress.

With so many jobs available, it’s natural that each client will have many submissions.

If you don’t hear back about a job you would have loved, don’t let it get to you. With hundreds of jobs going up a month and more brands getting on board daily there is always another opportunity around the corner.

Having a clear, well lit headshot is a necessity for any model. If you are listed on any website or for your comp card, this is usually the main image that is used to market you and the first image that any client will see. These headshots should also reflect your individual personality but most always maintain simplicity and composition.

Ideally natural lighting with a neutral background. Nothing that would disrupt the focus from your face – anything that would obscure any part of your face i.e, hats, sunglasses, big jewellery etc.

You should have at least one neutral expression and one smiling expression shot done.

For females:

  • Natural day makeup
  • Hair up or off your face

For males:

  • Tidy hair
  • Beard clipped and neat if applicable

A test shoot is a collaboration between a Photographer and a Model testing out a concept or idea to produce images that they would both use in their portfolio. This exchange can also involve Makeup Artists or Stylists who would also like to build their portfolio in a certain area (for example: if a portfolio is commercially strong the shoot may be to elaborate on high fashion or beauty). There is no exchange in funds as all parties benefit from the collaboration.

Test shoots routinely involve amateur models and photographers who may want to try out some new equipment or concepts. also known as TFP (Time for Prints) or the very old school TFCD (Time for CD).

Model Test Shoots – In the world of model agencies, a test shoot generally refers to a new model working with one of the agency’s approved photographers. This is done to have the model start building his/her agency portfolio and to see if the model has the talent and the personality to succeed in this industry. In this case, it’s basically the same as a TF* shoot in the sense that the model receives images but it’s up to negotiation if the model will release her likeness or if the photographer will be paid. Usually the model’s likeness is released for all non-commercial purposes and the photographer charges a discounted rate as determined between the photographer and the agency.

Commercial Test Shoots – In commercial photography, a test shoot is usually considered is preemptive test before the actual photo shoot without an exchange of images. These test shoots are usually done several days or weeks in advance of the actual photo shoot for the photographer to determine if he has chemistry with the model or if the model can deliver what the photographer expects her to. A large-scale commercial shoot can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars per day, so having to work with a model who can not deliver as asked may be a pretty big waste of time and money. Usually it only takes 30 minutes to an hour to determine if the model is suitable. Sometimes the model is paid for her time, but mostly it’s just considered some sort of job interview.

Stripe is the technology we use that allows both private individuals and businesses to accept payments over the Internet. We use Stripe to accept payments from anyone, anywhere.

During the profile setup phase on theright.fit you’ll be asked to add your bank details (talent profile) or credit card information (client profile) to a Stripe account. This is how we can ensure clients have the funds to pay their talent, and ensures our talent are paid within two business days of the job being completed. Complete all your details: full name, bank/credit card information, address, etc… Your business URL can be your theright.fit URL if you don’t have your own domain. For example “https://theright.fit/jane-d”

Please refer to “How do I get paid?” & “When do I have to pay the talent” in the Client FAQ section.

Please refer to “When Do I Get Paid” in the Talent FAQ section.

There will be a whole range of work available on theright.fit, depending on the type of talent you are (photographer, model, makeup artist, stylist, influencer etc). We’ll be working with the leading brands, advertising agencies, magazines, blogs and PR agencies so expect to see lots of campaigns you’d love to work on!

The initial review of talent for any type of job is based on portfolio images. This is your first and most important means of securing work. A strong portfolio always consists of roughly 5-10 different series of images with at least 5 strong images from each series. Please make sure these do not have watermarks.

Additionally, each series should vary i.e. natural headshots, a studio shoot, a fitness style shoot, an editorial shoot, corporate and so on. But you should also consider what suits you and what your market is. You will be able to gauge what you are suited to after being called for castings or even the type of jobs you are booked on!

If a client requests you for a casting, it means they are potentially interested in using you for their campaign and want to see and interact with you in person before making a decision.

Each casting you attend will vary depending on the type of work (photographic, TVC etc.) and even the agency you are casting with will have different methods of casting you.

Generally, you are called in for a particular role. Ensure you are across any and all the information you are supplied with prior to attending i.e. scripts, role descriptions, brands. You could even go the extra mile and research the brand or company  you are casting for.

Be prepared to have your photograph taken or be filmed doing an action. Most castings will only take about 15 minutes but wait times will vary depending on the amount of other talent attending.

Smart casual is always best. You are a professional model and therefore need to look professional, tidy and presentable at all times. Of course dress to what suits you and what you are casting for i.e. if you are casting for a sports brand you would probably wear active wear. But here are some basic suggestions:

Females: skinny jeans, preferably black or dark. A simple, fitted top, heels and a nice jacket if the weather permits it. A pair of heels.

Males: Jeans or chinos, a simple collared shirt, leather shoes.

Treat your castings like a job interview, you want to look and act your absolute best in front of potential employers.

Always bring your portfolio and comp card with you to every casting.

You should only be including professional standard images that represent you to the best and the most true to what you look like – high standard editorial or commercial images.

Please do not include the following:

  • Selfies/photos taken on iPhone/not professional standard
  • Images with watermarks/logos/overt branding
  • Blurry/skewed or unidentifiable images
  • Borders, or any type of inappropriate formatting (some models accidentally upload iPhone screenshots)
  • Photos not rotated
  • Logos used as images i.e. photographer logo
  • Double up’s of images
  • Images consider ‘risqué’: indecent or suggestive images
  • Images that may not appear to depict current appearance i.e. they may have multiple hair colours in varying images
  • No ‘before and after’

Ideally you would be working with photographers on a regular basis to gain experience but also to keep updating your look. If you have new images coming in consistently clients will remain engaged with you.

You are also required to update your images as soon as anything about your physical appearance changes; haircuts/hair colour, tattoos, weight etc.

Having new portfolio images done is also the best way to create content for your social media platforms as they are becoming an important tool for models to gain exposure to the right people in the industry.

We pride ourselves on getting talent paid quickly for the work they do.  As a result, you will be paid within 48 hours of a successful job straight into your Stripe account. This means you do not need to give the client an invoice, or share your bank details. We sort out the payment safely and securely so that you can focus on being creative and not have to worry about chasing payments. From your Stripe account, it make take a day or two to hit your bank account, depending on who you bank with.
