What is a reasonable agency fee for a local model agency? Is is the same for local & foreign models? I’m asking because I just got my first job thru a local agency. I don’t plan to make a career out of this, it’s just a diversion at this point. But I was surprised to hear that the agency wants a 40% take. They say it’s standard for “first year”.
I’ve seen the few other posts on this topic, but none of 'em mentioned money. If you’ve got experience, please tell me (a) is 40% reasonable, (b) did you sign a contract per job, © how was payment made, (d) any agencies to avoid.
