Many models struggle to get noticed because they don't have agencies, and a new app is trying to solve that.
Swipecast, which is like an Uber for modeling (book them directly and they will show up at your shoot), cuts the middleman out of the deal. Models can connect directly with brands, photographers and designers, and get models 90% of the total fee within 1-2 days of the job. As with Uber, there is also a two-way rating system. There's also a peculiar “trade” option, where clients exchange their clothes or accessories for a model’s time instead of paying the standard day rate - a system already in place in Manila! Haha
