Modeling Agency Websites
What can modeling agency websites offer?
There is an abundance of modeling agencies on the web. Many of these model agency sites have model searches, and you can also get plenty of information on how to apply to their agencies on their websites.
When you find a list of online modeling agencies, the first thing you usually have to do is to create a profile or an online portfolio, which would also include professional photos of yourself. Modeling agency websites tend to have an extensive list of models, clients, and photographers, so by joining an agency website, you will not only become one of the agency's models, but you can also browse and see what kind of clients and photographers the agency is collaborating with.
Many agencies find the use of the internet an excellent way of finding new models and to offer models the opportunity to not have to go to castings, by just dealing with the client or the project coordinator directly. So for many models it can prove a very beneficial way of starting their modeling career as then the model does not have to waste time running from one casting to another, but can rather be directly booked for a show or a photo shoot that matches with what the client is looking for.
While serving a great resource for many new models, modeling agency websites can turn out to be scams. So while you are reading about a particular agency, pay close attention to things like the year of establishment, their business description, client list, street address, FAQs, prices and last but certainly not least, model tear sheets. Model tear sheets are one of the best ways to spot a scam. So always make sure the model agency site has model tear sheets, which not only show photos of the agency's models, but also prove that the models they represent actually got work and that their work was published.
