Commercial Actor: Non-Union/Non-Franchised Talent Agencies

Warning!  Non-Union Agencies!  Warning!

The Actor’s Handbook does not recommend that an actor ever pay the agency for photos. Generally, they overcharge the actors (sometimes as much as $500 or $600 more than the cost of the photographer.)  The best photographers and instructors do not work for the agencies directly. Please look at the section for photographers and instructors in The Actor’s Handbook. Not all non-union talent agencies engage in these practices. Always research the company before you enter into any agreement.
