Many modeling agencies, especially in major markets like New York, specialize in only one particular look for their models. Some may only represent very high fashion models, and others may only represent commercial models. Others may only work with females, others focus on male models. If an agency is unable to sign you, don’t get discouraged; it’s important to get seen by as many agents as possible and on a routine basis. That is however, after you have the right experience and work under your belt.
If you live in one of the major markets such as NYC, you may be able to attend an appointment or open casting at the agency.
Getting exposure is a very time-consuming and expensive if you are doing it freelance.
To increase your chances of getting signed by an agency, work with people who have experience and direct introductions to agencies in a variety of markets. All you have to do is sign up! Latitude Talent Studios is a great place to start and offers the most legitimate and effective way for you to get the exposure you need to be seen by many clients seeing talent for their projects. Latitude is not an agency, making it commission free for all models and actors starting out. Learn more by visiting online to become a model.

Is Latitude Talent and Agency for Models?That is a common question as Latitude holds open evaluations for models and actors in their NYC Office. While an agency model is similar to that of how Latitude Talent works, they do not collect a commission from their talent.
Latitude is a marketing firm which is different than an agency. An agency focuses only on booking work for models and actors, while Latitude solely focuses on helping a talent get started or signed to casting opportunities. Similar to a mother modeling agency, Latitude has contacts to casting calls and agencies to help build up your resume.
Models with Latitude Talent should expect to cover their own enrollment in their services, while Latitude Talent covers the test shoot to start their comp card – similar to an agency.
