Los Angeles Male Modeling Agencies 

Top LA Male Modeling Agencies & How to Get Signed to One

When compiling our list of the Top Male Modeling Agencies Los Angeles we first had to ask ourselves – what makes an agency worthy of being rated the best male modeling agency? Is it the size of the agency and the number of models they represent? Or, is it the agency’s ability to develop and nurture its models and build long-term careers and relationships even if the agency represents only a small group of men and is considered a “boutique agency”? What is the criteria needed to name an agency to a top ten list?

There are numerous factors to consider when looking for a male modeling agency to represent you. Even though an agency may be the biggest and most popular, it doesn’t necessarily make it the best agency for you. Smaller, boutique agencies can be a great place for new models to get the focused attention they need in order to develop their careers. On the other hand, a big well-known agency may be more appropriate depending on your experience and particular needs.

Before you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on professional photos, it’s important to know that top Los Angeles model agencies and other top international modeling agencies around the world never require professional photos to evaluate your potential as a model.

In fact, professional photos can do more harm than good to your image if you don’t get them right, and new models rarely get professional photos right. Basic snapshots taken with your phone are just fine as long as you follow some basic tips:

  • Photos should be clear and in focus
  • Include at least one headshot and a full length shot
  • Keep hairstyles simple and well groomed
  • Keep clothing simple and in good taste
  • Include a swimsuit photo if you are comfortable wearing a swimsuit
  • Do not submit nude photos
  • Do not wear fur in your photos. It is offensive to some agents, and it’s just wrong.
  • You should be the only one in the photo
  • Remember that first impressions are important
