About us


Sarah Keller founded Paparazzi Model Management in 1996 in Amsterdam. The agency has a main focus on the highest segment of the national and international fashion industry. With our team we guide and support models in every aspect of their career. We work together with our models on the strategic development of their professional career trajectory, as well as their personal development as an individual.

Paparazzi Model Management has grown to become one of leading agencies in the Netherlands. Throughout the years we have profiled ourselves as an agency that has eye for working with the right talents and the development of careers of models in the international modeling industry.

We strive for diversity and represent unique personalities, who do not solely satisfy the traditional beauty norms.


At Paparazzi Model Management we prefer that our models have reached the age of 18 before they start to work fulltime. It is of enormous importance to us that models who work for us have finished their high school before they start working fulltime.

This does not mean that we do not accept models to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18 we can, in consultation with your parents, start building your career in a tranquil manner. This can be done with an occasional test shoot or a paid job. Above all this you can also participate in our Model Day. This allows you to familiarize yourself with the modeling world, and see if it suits you.


Because we care about the success, but most of all the wellbeing of our models, we organize The Model Day.

This unique day is meant to give new models the chance to familiarize with what it means to be a model. During The Model Day new models get through an array of workshops, as an introduction to what it’s like to work as a model and to explain the many aspects of the career of a professional model. 

Through more than 20 years of experience in the top segment of the fashion industry we know the high demands that are being asked in the world of models. 

To prepare our models the best we can, we find it of importance to stand by them in their personal and physical development. In cooperation with a team of professional stylists, catwalk coaches, sport specialists, dermatologists, nutritionists and a psychologist we make sure that you, as a new model, have the knowledge to succeed in this industry.


On this page you will find a link to our Paparazzi Model Guide which we have created for the models who are represented by our agency.

The Model Guide consists of a thorough explanation of the many aspects that the career of a professional model includes. For example, in this Guide you can read what awaits you if you start modeling work, how you can take care of yourself in the best manner, how international trips work, and even how to take care of your financial administration as a freelancer.
