The role of a model agency
The best way for a new model to start out in the industry is by joining a model agency. Model agencies will act as your agent and will promote you and find you work. A good agency will also advise and train you and handle payment from clients for paid work that you carry out through them. In basic terms a good agency will find you work, make sure that your printed portfolio is up to date and handle all your paperwork and legal obligations.
Use your common sense – if it looks too good to be true then it often is. Avoid agencies that advertise online or in the classified sections – especially if they guarantee you work. Try not to take unnecessary risks. If you are visiting an agency for the first time, make sure you research them thoroughly and take someone along with you for support and safety.
