Legitimate agencies make their money by taking a percentage from models and clients off the work they book. I'm surprised that people don't realize agencies make 40% of each booking.As a standard - many agencies take 20% from the model (commission) and another 20% from the client (agency fee). Meaning, if they book you for a full day for $1,000, they actually will bill the client $1,200. When the model gets her check, it will be for $800 and the agency's profit is $400. That is how an agency makes their money! Unfortunately almost half of the agencies existing don't work this way. That is a lot of opportunity for all of you to get taken. Like with Audra Anderson and Mode-elle management.
First and foremost, realize that agencies are a Monday-Friday, 9-5pm business. She only operates form noon until 8 pm.If you are contacted to attend an "Open Call" or "Talent Review" make sure it's between these hours. Be very suspicious if they ask you to come in later in the evening or a weekend. Legitimate agencies don't do weekends unless its for a photoshoot or with reasonable exceptions they came in to organize somehting and that was the only time you were available to meet them!
Also look around at the caliber of the folks attending, if you notice there are girls who don't even qualify and are making into the agency ask yourself some questions... Legit agencies don't want
