  • Depends where you live. To find an agency that won't scam you requires that you do research for your area. If you follow the local news media (newspaper, TV), there is a good chance information on local agencies will show up there. The other way is to follow the local fashion print advertising. When you start to see which stores use local models regularly, you can start making phone calls. Call the store and find out who handles the advertising. You can hope that the person at the store who does this can direct you to their advertising agency, their photographer, or may even direct you to the modeling agency they use.

  • Some tips to finding an agency:

    1. Check the yellow pages (online or in print). A modeling agency wants to be easy to find so a phone listing is a must.
    2. Check with the Better Business Bureau. They may have information on the modeling agencies you are interested in or complaints against them.
    3. One thing I like to do to check out agencies is to call them after business hours. Things don't happen 9-5 in the modeling world. A good agency knows this and you will find, when you call them after hours, they will have an answering machine or service that will give you an emergency number to call (a cell phone or pager). If you find the machine just tells you to call back during business hours or they have no after hour answering service at all, look for another agency.

  • All I know is if they ask you to do a "start up fee" it's a scam. No Lagit modeling agency requires upfront payment. They're there to make you money, which in turn makes them money. But no honest to goodness agency asks for payment upfront. It's a scam if they do.
