Why seeking a Major Talent Agency to Start is Not the Best Idea

When new models want to get started, they think the best thing to do is to apply to every major agency they can find.

Not hearing back after a couple of weeks? It’s common, modeling agencies are very, very picky and for good reason.

The best idea to be a model is to build up your experience and book. Working with legitimate photographers and attending casting calls can make all the difference when starting out.

Is Latitude Talent Studios Legit?
 
That’s a question that some talent that haven’t visited our office might ask as those who work with Latitude Talent know that we are the legitimate source for models and actors of all experience levels looking to get started in the industry. In this article, we will debunk common things you might read online from either people who have never worked with an agency, or those who have wrong and outdated information.
Do modeling agencies charge money?
A modeling agency works to submit their actors and models to jobs they receive. In turn, the agent takes any where from 10-20% commission from their booked job. On top of that, the agency will typically take 20% from the casting client as well. As a model or actor looking for an agent, you will mostly need need to have a resume along with a portfolio in order to land an agent. Some agencies will cover your portfolio as well as test shoot and debit that from your future earning. This is very rare and only reserved “special talent” who are  typically high fashion males 6’1 or taller and females 5’9 or taller.
