Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the subject of The Business Models' newest Market Guide.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is one of the smaller markets in Asia. Despite its size, the market is slowly starting to gain popularity amongst agencies and models because of the many high quality editorials models have the opportunity to shoot. The "European-style" of photography has attracted many models to travel to the market in order to build a stronger portfolio. The better a model's portfolio, the better the chance they have of booking well-paying jobs as well as receiving a higher guarantee in other markets – even by thousands of dollars.
Like Singapore, KL should be approached as an investment trip for models. Although money can be made in KL, it's nowhere near the amount a model can make in China, Hong Kong, or Japan. But with the opportunity to rebuild a whole book, the return on investment can be high.
