Quick Question: Do I need to pay money for my child to get into the modeling industry?

Quick Answer: No…you should not be asked for any upfront money for your child to be seen by an agent or casting director. However, be clear that modeling is a business and all businesses have expenses, but any company claiming they can get your child in print or on tv by selling you photo packages, modeling classes, and holding mock fashion shows for casting directors are most likely scams. Agencies ONLY make money if they get you WORK. They take a percentage of your earnings from the jobs that they book for you.

Remember, if it seems like a scam it probably is.

Take Away* If you are asked for money upfront to get work – whether it be for photos or classes or “exposure” – buyer beware – Agencies get paid when they get YOU work…not the other way around. Put your checkbook down and decline!
