|What is a Talent Agent, and what can she do for me?
The job of a talent agent includes marketing and promoting various people that have specific talents in acting, modeling or both. Many talent agents work exclusively with actors or
actresses, while others work with models of different ages or may focus on just children or just adults. A talent agent works closely with the talent to help then learn the various skills needed
to land the job that they are auditioning for. This means that the talent agent should have a good background in the type of career the talent is interested in pursuing.
A talent agent will spend a good deal of his or her time networking with directors, photographers and other clients that have a need for talent of some sort. The agent will then be able to
make recommendations, book auditions or even book jobs for the various talent that they represent that meets the client's needs. The more talent that an agent represents the more likely it
is that they will be able to fulfill the requirements of the client. In addition to just meeting with clients a talent agent will also recruit new talent. This may be in the form of advertisements,
try-outs or modeling shows, or even community based competitions. Here at Ryan Talent and Model Agency, we use Open Calls for New Talent, Talent's E-Mail and Snail Mail
submissions AND American Star Discovery Talent and Model Showcase as ways to recruit new talent! Please visit www.americanstardiscovery.com for more details!
