03/13/18 - "Can I make my living in Indianapolis doing nothing but modeling?" It's a question we hear a lot. The quick answer is....no. But, as with most things, it comes with an asterisk. It really depends on how you define "making a living." If you're paying a rent/mortgage, car payment, college loan payment, etc., you might pay them some months solely by modeling work in Indy but definitely not every month. But....if your monthly expenses are a smaller mountain then, yes, it's possible to break even consistently doing just modeling work in Indianapolis. For most, the answer is still no.
03/09/18 - There seems to be a basic misunderstanding among most Midwestern "agencies" regarding what "modeling" is in our region. To be a model in Indiana, one first has to understand what that means. If you want to be a New York model, or a New York model agency, you need to be in New York. A large part of our success is understanding what modeling is in Indiana (or, maybe more importantly, what it is not.)
03/07/18 - Our website build for actors is almost ready. Stay tuned!
03/04/18 - A common question is about height. Prospective models (especially female) often call or write to ask "I'm short. Is there a place for me?" In a market like Indianapolis, the answer is a big yes! There are a few legitimate times when height is a factor in an Indy booking (a bridal show is a good example) but, mostly, it makes zero difference. In our history, our top money earner is 5'2".
03/03/18 - Today's question is about "workshops." You can dress it up many ways but the bottom line is it's a gathering for which the audience pays some amount of money to listen to someone who supposedly knows more about a particular topic than do they. What the audience gets out of it is questionable but the "host" does so to make money. In 24 years, we have hosted 3 of these (which is probably 3 more than we should have.)
02/28/18 - We recently had a question about composite cards. Someone wanted to know if printed composites are still used? There's no 100% answer but, in the Indianapolis market, the answer is mostly no. Virtually all agencies these days deal in composite files that can be sent by email. Be leery if someone wants you to pay to have printed composite cards made. They're obsolete & mostly useless.
02/25/18 - Someone asked: "why don't you book actors as well as models?" Hmmmm.......book actors and models! Stay tuned :)
02/24/18 - Today's topic is teen models. Can teenagers be successful models? Yes! However, before you can have a successful teen model, you need a willing/able teen parent. Every time a teen model has to be somewhere (photo shoot, go-see, job, etc.), so does at least one parent. It's not easy. We book more teens than anyone in the Midwest and the #1 headache isn't getting the teen out of school but, rather, getting mom/dad out of work, etc. It takes a parent who is 100% committed to being a "model parent." See some of our teen models here: http://www.indymodels.com/gallery3check.htm
02/24/18 - Someone suggested we should create a blog about modeling and talk about the industry and how to be a part of it. OK....we will! Return here often to read our fits of wisdom :)
