Regardless of what career you pursue, it's very important that you familiarize yourself with that particular industry. Most industries use specific terminology in everyday business transactions that others outside of the business are unfamiliar with. If you're new to modeling, it's very likely that during a meeting with an agent, or your first day on the set of a photo shoot, you may hear words that you've never heard before. So let's get you up to speed with some of the terms that are commonly used in the modeling industry.

Day Rate

Your day rate is the amount of money you'll earn for a full day of work. The amount will depend on a number of things including your experience, popularity and the caliber of the client.


Editorial work is any work that will appear in a magazine outside of advertising, such as photos accompanying a story about fashion or even relationships, as well as editorial spreads which are usually several pages long and showcase the latest fashion trends and designs.

P&G Child

This is an abbreviation for Proctor and Gamble child. Proctor and Gamble manufactures popular American brands such as Charmin, Luvs and Puffs. Over the years P&G child has become a generic term to refer to a child with an adorable, all-American look.

Resort Wear

A line of clothing that appears between fall and spring collections. The line is usually casual, and relaxed and can be worn in warm weather climates. Ralph Lauren's Blue Label is an example of a resort collection.

Tear Sheets

These are pages from a magazine, newspaper or other periodical that a model has appeared in. Models remove (or tear) these pages from the publications and include them in their portfolio.
