Whats it cost to become a model or actor? Well that varies on the agency and market. You see, agencies in smaller markets like PA or NJ or even Miami don’t have the resources to fund a new model or actor. Many coming in already have to have the right materials for them to use.
Along with making sure you have some acting skills (if you are seeking an acting agent) the next step is to have a head shot taken. That is the most basic and essential investment you will have to make it some cases, yearly.
Many agents require their actors and or models to either pay a monthly or annual fee to be on their web site or another company’s web site that the agent uses to market their talent. This is now standard practice and has been for some time. Any one saying that is not true, hasn’t been signed to an agent in the past decade. Agencies may also collect a commission if you book any work. Many upcoming management companies like We- Speak Management are no longer collecting commissions from their models.
