Once a month, Albany Talent offers a free Orientation and Information Night for new models, actors and parents to learn more about the industry of professional modeling and talent before venturing forth into it. Many of your questions about how the business actually works will be answered, including:
WHAT ARE SKILLS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO SUCCEED? WHERE DO YOU GET JOBS?
WHAT TYPES OF JOBS DO YOU BOOK? HOW MUCH DO THEY PAY?
WHAT AGES ARE YOU LOOKING FOR? HOW MUCH TRAVEL IS THERE?
HOW AND WHAT DO MODELS GET PAID? HOW DO MODELS AND ACTORS LEARN?
HOW MUCH SHOULD I PAY FOR PHOTOGRAPHS? WHAT IS A PORTFOLIO?
The next event has been scheduled for Monday May 19th, 6:30-8PM and it will be at the Saratoga Springs office, 125 High Rock Avenue. Reservations are necessary, as seating is limited. Please reserve by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us how many seats to reserve. Hope this makes a good beginning for you in the wonderful world I work in.
All the best,
James Pentaudi, director Albany Talent
