WE PROVIDE OUR CLIENTS WITH THE TOOLS THEY NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN THE BUSINESS
Do you have to be a certain height to be a model or actor?
We have a wide range of needs in this market. Since it is a commercial market and not a high fashion market, we can take shorter men and women than the New York agencies. It is always best to submit online, be honest with your height and size, and attach good pictures. You never know what we may be looking for!
Do you take children?
Yes, we start with children at age 4. Due to our client needs in VA, we do not represent children younger than 4. On the rare occasion a client does ask us for babies or toddlers, we post a request for submission on our Facebook page.
Do you have to have professional images to submit online or bring to the open call?
No! You can attach any 2 pictures to the online submission form that are right off your camera or Facebook page. When you come to open call, you just need to bring any 2 printed pictures of yourself. We will not look at photos saved on your phone or thumb drive, so please print a couple.
Do you have to have any prior experience to submit to the agency?
No! We will look at anyone who has a desire to find out about the business of modeling or acting.
Do you have to bring an adult with you to open call?
Open call is for 16 + years. If you are 16 or 17, yes, you must have a parent or guardian to be seen.
Do you respond to everyone who submits online?
Yes. You will be contacted either way. We get many submissions every week, so be patient, but you will either receive an email to come in and meet, or a note explaining that we are taking a pass at this time.
Can you submit pictures more than once?
Yes! There may be many reasons we take a pass, so you are welcome to resubmit in 6 months to a year.
There are three ways to submit your photos:
1. Submit yourself using our new
ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM
When using the online form, remember to complete all fields marked with a red asterisk [*]. You may attach up to 4 jpeg photos. If we are interested, we will contact you in 3-5 business days and instruct you on how to proceed.
2. Come to our OPEN CALL
