Do you need to use a specialist hand model agency?
What is a hand model?
Hand models are exactly and sometimes exclusively that – a hand model. Global cosmetics brands, for instance, will turn to a specialist hand model agency to market their products.
Sometimes hand models can be models with a petite frame and (in this industry) a lack of height. What all hand models have in common is perfect hands – slender, unblemished and cared for.
Why use a specialist hand model?
A hand model will have / should have good experience in holding poses for a prolonged amount of time. This may sound easy, but certain shots require certain angles which can cause strain.
A specialist hand model should be able to hold those poses for as long as is required.
What about other body parts?
There is a definite need for specialist body parts models – we know this based on the daily enquiries that come in from creative directors and photographers. Specialist foot models and specialist leg models are now becoming the norm.
Many photographers prefer a specialist body part model as the model is already aware of how to best showcase their hand / foot / leg, which allows a quicker shoot, saving time and money.
Why use a specialist hand model agency?
A reputable hand model agency will be able to recommend certain models for differing assignments. They should have plenty of experienced models on their books with fantastic assets.
