How do you find modeling agencies that use middle age models?
With the exception of the top fashion agencies in NYC, LA or Miami almost all agencies in the US represent middle-aged models.
If you are working in a small market outside of New York - and even in New York - You need to visit and hopefully sign with as many modeling agencies as you can. There is no single modeling agency that has access to ALL of the work. If you sign with only one or two agencies, you are missing out on a great deal of opportunity. The agencies understand this also - and while they may talk to you about being exclusive - unless they are willing to put a dollar amount on a contract and guarantee you an income - NEVER sign an exclusive deal with an agency. (Trust me - no agency will put a dollar amount on paper.) = United States Modeling Agencies
