Quick Tip #43
For: Male & Female Models
Although contacting agencies directly is not recommended--especially if they haven't replied back to your submission--there are exceptions to this rule.
The ONLY time this is okay is if the agency has already contacted you with their interest (i.e. if an agency replies back to your submission and state they want to set up an interview with you). If the agency doesn't give you info on what to wear, materials to bring, etc. then it is acceptable to email your contact at the agency to ask those questions. Because communication has already been established, agencies won't frown upon you contacting them in this situation.
But if you sent in your submission and never heard back, it is not acceptable for you to call or email them to "check in" or "follow up." No response back means the agency isn't interested in you at this time so move on to the next one.
