What is a modeling agency?

"A modeling agency is a company that seeks modeling talent and places that talent with various companies and events for photo shoots, videos, commercials, print and runway modeling. Typically, there is a written agreement between the model and the modeling agency. The agreement may or may not be exclusive. With exclusive contracts, models generally are barred from working with other agencies or the agencies corporate clients while under contact.

Exclusive contracts are not necessarily a bad thing, but the model should have some written guarantees that the agency will get them work on a recurring basis, since this will be their only source of obtaining video, commercial, print and runway assignment. The options agreement is where automatic extensions may occur to continue the length of the agreement." Modeling Industry: Secrets Revealed
