1. Photos are an absolute MUST! Since the creation of the internet, for Las Olas (LOMT), composites have become obsolete, however; we can't book you without good digital pictures. A client will contact our office and tell us what talent they need. The client will give specific details such as a man or worman, child or teen etc. We then go through our data base and send digital pictures that fit their description. You can't compete if your digital photos aren't as good as your competition.
2. Photos can be taken by any photographer! For beginners, we suggest you do your research, check the photographers website for his or her portfolio and ask the photographer specific questions before you start. Home much will it cost for a session, how many looks does that include and do I get a digital file of all the photos?
3. Email your pictures to Neal@lasolasmodels.com. Don't forget to include a phone number with your email. LOMT will then call or respond. If you don't hear from the agency, it may be that your pictures aren't what LOMT is looking for or LOMT may already have too many people in your category. It definitely doesn't mean you can't work or do well with another agency.
4. Before you submit to any agency, in the State of Florida, check the state website to make sure the Talent or Modeling agency is licensed. http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/pro/talent/ Every agency listed on the State of Florida's website is licensed and bonded - legit ! Also, remember there is never a fee in the State of Florida to be listed with any agency. The only time an agency gets paid is when you do a job and then the agency gets a percentage.
5. Las Olas Models & Talent, Inc. has been in business for over 20 years with the original owners in it's original location. We are considered a lifestyle agency.
