Taking Control of Your Career, One Audition at a Time

May 21, 2017 2 Comments
There are actions you can take to market yourself and jump-start your acting and modeling career outside of what your agent can do

Don’t feel trapped by waiting on others to get you acting and modeling work.

As someone who has been a full-time actor and commercial model for over 30 years, I can unequivocally say it’s always best to have an agent help you find work. An agent is going to know more about the jobs happening in your market than anyone else. With that being said, it’s critical for actors and models to take control of their career and know how to market themselves.

Understanding how to get work on your own has several benefits. If you don’t have an agent, finding jobs on your own is the only way for you to get work. And if you do have an agent, it can keep you busy while things are slow.

There are actually many avenues for actors and models to find work; most people just don’t know where to look.

Step 1

Begin searching for and contacting commercial photographers in your area. Doing a search on ASMP.org will give you the names of some photographers close to you.

Step 2

Getting in touch with the art and creative directors at advertising agencies is also a great way to find work. You can contact your local Chamber of Commerce to get the names of the ad agencies nearest you.

Sometimes the art/creative directors are the ones who decide which actor or model gets cast in the modeling job, TV commercial or radio spot.

Step 3
