How can I get in touch with Agencies?
The agent acts as the “middle man” between the model and casting opportunities. Click the link below to see the partial listing of modeling agencies in Metro Manila. Please check this website for updates. Last updated: March 4, 2014
I personally do not like to recommend any agency. I’m happy with my agent but some people I know aren’t. There are also some agencies I wouldn’t recommend but I’ve met talents of that agency who are OK with them. If there’s a perfect agency out there, please let me know. Before you take your child to their office, call them first to know schedule of VTRs for kids. Some agencies have certain scheduled days for kid applicants, usually Saturdays.
Call any agency and say you want your child to be their talent or you want to get your child into modeling and ask them their schedule and requirements. No need to feel shy or beat around the bushes. Talent agency people get these kind of calls everyday.

Most of the agencies mentioned are in Makati. If there’s an agency close to your area, they will still send you to Makati for product VTRs since most Casters, Production and Advertising agencies are in Makati. If you want to send your child’s picture by email, call the agency first should they have any requirement you need to comply with. If the agency on this list doesn’t have an email, call and ask. I heard that the Talent Agents Organization requires all agencies to have email addresses. I just don’t have a complete list of that yet.
What do I need to know before I pick an agency?
1.) Legitimacy – Check if they are registered with Department of Trade. You can check the Business Name Search on the DTI website or check if they have the Business License plate in their office.
2.) Friendly tone of voice over the phone and if they are nice enough to answer your inquiry.
3.) Search online and ask people for feedback.
4.) View their website and facebook page to see how professional the agency is. If it is full of candid photos of bikini clad women, all-half naked men, distasteful poses, you would not like your kid to be associated with such agencies, right?
5.) Check if they have known/popular talents they managed and clients they did projects for.
How does this business work if they don’t charge their talents?
Modeling agencies are sent a request by a caster or advertising agency on the kind of models they need for a project. The Modeling agencies will then send all their models who fit the description on the request. Now, who ever gets the part, the agency of that model gets 30% commission from the client. This is how modeling agencies make business. They earn only when their in-house models gets to be casted. That’s why they need to pool lot of models or applicants & keep a VTR & photo of those models in their file. The more models, the greater chance for the agency to get commissions.
