When becoming a model in New York, the first step besides getting your marketing in order, is making sure you find the castings to apply to. The more exposure, the better!
Upcoming models need to always look out for common red flags when it comes to finding casting calls.
A common red flag is castings that have common spelling errors. Not only are they not professional, it could be someone impersonating an actual brand.
Another common red flag is a casting call that requires you to advance them money. An example is a casting client “booking you for a job” but telling you to mail them a check or money order for a shoot. This is NOT legit! A real gig will never ask you to send them a money before you complete the project!
Always do your homework when it comes to working with a casting call client. A simple google search with the email address can come up with any complaints or related casting calls. For more articles, check out the Latitude Talent Blog!
