Tips on Finding a Modeling Agency
The following are some tips to help you get your successful modeling career started.
Tip #1: Watch Out for Scams
There are a lot of phony modeling agents and talent scouts. With the constant fluctuations in the fashion world, no one can guarantee you fame and fortune. A legitimate agency will not demand money before a contract can be signed. However, do not be surprised if an agency requires reimbursement for certain startup fees at a later point in time, and all talent management businesses will expect commission from the work they find you.
Tip # 2: Do Your Research
Always research an agency. Find out how long they have been in business, how much money they bring in annually, who they represent, and other concrete and pertinent information. Modeling agencies like to represent a variety of models. Try to pinpoint agencies that may be searching for models that fit your own look.
Tip #3: Approach a Prospective Agency in the Right Way
Be professional when attending any audition, even if it is for a small agency. Dress appropriately and be sure to bring your portfolio, which should include only your best photos. Your portfolio should include at least one headshot and one full body picture. While more than two photos is good – so long as they are all high quality pictures – don’t bombard the interviewer with too many.
Tip #4: Don’t Get Discouraged
Even if you have applied – and been turned down by – forty agencies, don’t stop trying. The problem could be as simple as needing a new haircut, different clothes, or even a different market. Don’t be afraid to start with a small agency to gain experience. The fashion world is always changing, and your look may be in high demand at the next open call.
