New Model Agencies

Differences between new and existing model agencies

There is a big boom in the modeling industry at the present moment. New model agencies are surfacing at a rapid rate. As new modeling agencies are being established, it's good to be aware of a few important differences between new and old modeling agencies. As long as you know the distinctions between the two, and are able to make a decision based on facts, you should have no trouble choosing the right modeling agency to represent you as a model.

Modeling agencies with a history and reputation

There are plenty of modeling agencies that have a great reputation for producing some of the world's leading supermodels. These modeling agencies are famous for the models they represent. The competition to work with one of these modeling agencies is much tougher than in a new modeling agency that has recently started doing business. The great thing about these older, respected modeling agencies is their success, reputability and the security they can offer their models as well as their clients. Therefore, working with a good modeling agency that has decades of modeling industry expertise, will most likely guarantee its models constant work with top clients.

Old model agencies versus new model agencies

The most obvious issue with new model agencies is the trustworthiness of the agency, solely due to its limited experience and expertise. New modelling agencies can, and most often do, offer their models continuous work, but the reliability of the agency's ability to represent its models, remains on the balance. Many new model agencies start out with the potential of becoming successful model agencies, only to go out of business some months or years later.

So while it's definitely easier to start your career as a model with new model agencies, it's riskier in terms of the security of your modeling career. Signing with an old, established modeling agency that trades with its reputation, can be a more secure option to choose, even if competition for a place among these agencies' model lists is significantly tougher.
