I'm getting my children into modeling we live in Minneapolis where there are a few good agencies but of course not a lot of work. Is it ok to be with multiple agencies? Would it help you or hinder you? I have a friend whose child is with all the good agencies and they get a lot of work so it seems like it helps. I have even had agencies we've submitted to ask if we are with another agency and they said that was ok. But then ive also looked up children with one agency and didnt find them on any other agencies websites. Should I use the same headshots to be put on the websites or should I get different ones for each agency?
It's not an amazing idea to be with 2 different agencies in the same town. You will be double submitted on jobs and then it just make you look unprofessional and untrustworthy. You can though, have your mother agent in your hometown and then have others in other markets around the world.
It depends on how things work there. It can be different in different locations. I believe in Florida you can have multiple agencies. Where we are it is a complete no-no and will royally tick everyone off so I would never do it here. You should just ask them. They are pretty clear about it here and it is a question you should know the answer to!
Thanks for replying! I wasn't sure how that worked. I just knew of one other person who did it who gets a lot of jobs and all the agencies seem ok with it. Its not like you are signif a contract. Some clients they share but some are differet.
Are you able to submit to agencies in other parts of the country/world? How would you go on go-sees? Do you know of any agencies that accept models who don't live where they're located? Thanks again!
It all depends on your market. As noted, in Florida most models are mult-listed and its not considered unprofessional, its the standard. Some agencies will ask you to sign an exclusive agreement in which case you may not be multi-listed.
