Models/Talent Join Our Team

If you are new to the industry we are here to help you get a good start and not get scammed.  We provide free educational services and training through our in house book and video library.  We show you how to weed out the businesses that are out there just to take your money like some modeling schools and modeling agencies.  We are able to arrange for Test Shoots/TFP shoots or discounted portfolio shoots with top photographers.  Then we help you get listed on legitimate casting sites to find work.  

 

We are a small local service provider, not a large agency.  You can use us as an agency, or a resource.  No contracts.  Our purpose is to help get you started then eventually listed with a large agency.

 

All that we ask is that you return the favor by referring others to use our sister companies for their services.  

 

What is costs to be involved with us?

Nothing:  We are not here to take your money.  We only make money if we help you make money.  When we find you jobs we get 10% of the pay for that job.

Models:  If we have worked with you in some form or manner and find you credible with a good portfolio we will just add you to our private Facebook communication group and support you.  You will have access to our training resources and discounts with our venders.  (Photographers/MUAs) Our photographers will update your portfolio if needed at discounted rates.

Getting Listed and Found….or should I say getting listed and finding work?

 

This is the goal of the process and there are a lot of pitfalls along the way.

 

We will help you:

 

  1.  Figure out what type of modeling you are fit for and want to to.  (If you are a performer you know this already.)
  2. Get a basic portfolio started online in multiple places for leverage.
  3. Select credible casting sites to get listed on.
  4. Show you how to find  castings.
  5. Connect you with movie/video producers that take new talent TFP to build some video reels.
  6. Connect you with professional photographers that will do portfolio shoots for TFP or deep discounts.
  7. Include you in our open agency database for potential jobs.
  8. Teach you you to recognize and avoid scams.
