WHAT IS A MOTHER AGENT?
A mother agency is vital to success in the modeling industry. Like a mother, our job is to protect you and guide you down the right path for a long-term career. We work for you. with worldwide placement with booking agencies, we aim to project your personal brand to the next level.
HOW IS A MOTHER AGENT PAID?
We only make money when you make money. We never charge a model directly, and are always paid through your booking agencies. In most markets, agencies take 20% commission from the models earnings as a service fee. The agency then pays the Mother Agent half of that, or 10%. Any mother agency or scout that charges upfront fees is a scam.
DOES A MOTHER AGENCY GUARANTEE WORLDWIDE PLACEMENT?
Unfortunately, a Mother Agent can not guarantee that you will find an agency as sometimes the belief a scout has in a girl is not always seen by others. But you can be guaranteed that if a Mother Agent believes in you and signs you, they will work hard to get you placed with the right people that believe in you the same way!
