It is very important to have an agent in modeling because you will not be able to attend certain auditions without one. An agent will also help with the negotiating side of being a model. They can help you to get more jobs and to also get better pay as a model.

How to Find Modeling Agencies

If you are trying to find modeling agencies, you have a few options. You can check for agencies online or in your local yellow pages by looking under the Modeling or Talent Agencies sections. After you find contact information about agencies, you should do some research about each one. You may want to ask people who are in the industry or check out different websites to see if certain agencies are reputable.

It is important that you know a lot about an agency before signing any contracts. Scam agencies do exist and you should be careful not to fall into their traps.

This percentage is usually between five and 30 percent.

When you are attempting to find modeling agencies, you may decide on a particular agency that you would prefer over the rest. In this case, it is often a good idea to visit the agency in person. You can stop in to drop off your portfolio instead of mailing it to the agency. Agencies may be more likely to consider you if they can see you in person.
