3 Tips To Land a Modeling Agent

If you’re looking to become a model, or take your current modeling career onto the next level, landing a modeling agency is a very important piece to complete the puzzle. If you’re just starting out as a beginner model, there are many alternative routes you can take to get started without the help of an agency. However, if you’re looking to start landing major campaigns, a modeling agency contract is the ultimate objective for some to reach that goal. These 3 tips can help you land a modeling agent.

Start Networking

Networking is very important in the entertainment industry. If you ask any established model or actor, they will tell you attending network events, workshops, and seminars takes up most of their time. It is very important as a beginner to network with not only other models, but also with local players in your market. If you aren’t located in a major market like New York, Miami or Los Angeles, it is best to seek out events in the next Major market. An example would be if you live on the outskirts of Massachusetts, you’d want to find a modeling agency that’s located in Boston. You can find workshops and networking events on sites like EventBright and MeetUp, which allows others with similar interest and hobbies to connect with one another. Many beginner models are unsure how to connect with agencies besides just submitting their pictures on the website. Attending model boot camps as well as virtual online auditions can also provide exposure and networking.
