Photragraphers are allowed to post thier contact information and services in this forum for contacts and business.

Agents must post thier general talent calls at the following link and state the posting as a general talent call;

A warning for the protection of our members;

Legitimate talent agencies will not require you to pay for thier designated classes and photographers.

There is a common "kickback scheme" among agents that should be avoided. A kickback scheme is where the agency will get a cut of the photographer or acting instructors fee for sending all thier clients to the photographer.

Your agents should have only one motivation, to get you working. Legitimate agents are paid strictly on a commission only basis. Agents involved in kickback schemes make thier living off the scheme, charging sometimes outrageous sums of money and have little true motivation in getting you jobs.

Legitimate agents will require you to get headshots, audio recordings and other material to market you with. They may recommend a photographer or acting instructor to you but wont REQUIRE you to use them.

You can pick your own photographer and instructor!

If you think you might be getting pitched a "kickback scheme," I recommend that you do not work with that agent and find another one.

Legitimate photographers will give you proofs from the entire shoot along with the agreed amount of prints. Sometimes alternative payment arrangements made between the photographer and client may delay release of proofs, but when paid in full, you should have everything.

If you feel you're being scammed from an agent or photographer posting in this forum do not hesitate to inform me or another moderator! They will be dealt with immediately.
