While it is common to believe that a modeling agency works for models, it’s main priority is to scout both commercial an editorial talent that match what an advertiser is looking for. An example is when Gucci a premier luxury brand is scouting for talent for an ad campaign, agencies will typically send a package of talent for the companies consideration. If the company chooses to book the talent they are paid 20% from the client being the brand and then collect another 20% from the model. While a good looks may seem to please agencies, they are only scouting for books that can book them work.

Because of this they can be is increasingly difficult for new models or actors to find open casting calls, especially in a market such as New York City.

While many talents believe attending an open call in person is the best chance for success, it should be the last option a model or actor takes as attending will create a lasting impression. Regardless of whether you find success in the future and agency will always remember when you first come in so it is best to only attend when you are ready.

The last thing in agency wants is a piece of paper or a home printed photo that is not professional. While it doesn’t create the best impression, it typically is not usable for an agency to be able to market you out. Talent should always do their homework and come prepared to a casting call with a headshot work comp card to be seriously considered for a project. While this may be subject to change it is always best to reach out to the agencies directly before attending open call to make sure they are still holding it.
