Wondering what are modeling agencies?

Read on to learn about the business side of the modeling & acting business!

A modeling agency is a company that represents models. They are the go between for models and potential clients like designers, agencies and photographers. A modeling agent works on behalf of the models that are signed to their agency roster to get them in the door for castings in their market.

Local agencies will often seek out new models by opening submissions through their website. It’s important for new models to research whether or not an agency is reputable and what is industry standard for things like “how do models get paid?” or “what kinds of marketing materials do new models need?”

At Barbizon, we teach aspiring models and actors the business of the business with information about the different types of agencies, managers, types of castings and more. Our training program helps new models develop the skills and confidence needed to safely pursue local modeling and acting opportunities. Through our placement program, we help to connect new faces with local industry pros and opportunities.
