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.

Before we discuss some recent modeling agencies casting calls, it is first important to define what an open call is for a model and how it can help or hurt you, when you are just starting out brand new.
What is an open call?
An open call at a modeling agency is a chance for a talent to come in and be seen by an agent for potential representation. While it was common practice for top modeling agencies, especially in New York City, to host weekly open calls for fresh face talent, digital platforms and social media have changed how talent typically get scouted.
When attending an open call it is important to make sure that you dress appropriately. Typically, you want to avoid any bright clothing or items that have visible logos. For females, it is always best to have your hair back in a ponytail. Male models should have clean hair that is out of their face.
Are you like most models and actors that are looking to get a head start, but don’t know where or how to start?
Are you worried about getting involved in a situation that doesn’t quite fit what you’re looking for? Well here is The cold hard facts on how a talent marketing service like Latitude Talent Studios can help you as a new model or actor get started.
Number 1: Figure out your passion
It’s not as simple as saying “I want to be a model or I want to be an actor“. You have to truly want to work for it. While having a desire to pursue something is great, acting is a craft so when you go to tackle something as involved as acting, you have to figure out what kind of actor you want to be. It is always beneficial to start in this industry part- time and see where it brings you.
Number 2: Get to work
It is one thing to sit back and daydream about your desire to pursue something, it is completely different when you actually step up and get to work. No one is going to do the work for you. If your passion is to get started as a model or as an actor, you need to get up and do your homework and figure out how to get started.
