To be perfectly honest, there are a lot of crooks out there working as so-called talent agencies. A lot of people that want to cheat you out of your money and take a higher cut.
Here are the 8 best talent agencies that I have worked with before and have made good experiences with:
1. Bo Booker
Bo is a French guy and he gets a lot of good international jobs. He used to be an agent only, but he is also sometimes working as casting director as well. Bo will fight for your money and make sure you get a good rate. He works on movies, especially French ones, and commercials.

2. Gug – ByUs Modeling
Gug is a good agent. He friendly and forthcoming. Gug pays on time and if he is free he will be there with you on set. If you don’t have a ride, he may even give you a ride back home. His standard statement for all jobs is: “The Most Urgent Task…”
Jane has been in this industry for as long as I can remember and probably a bit longer. She works on movie and commercial projects and also does a lot of extra-work. Jane is always friendly and professional and takes good care of her talents on set.
4. Ae Fatman – Maya Modeling
Another veteran of the industry. From the feedback I have received over the years, he has never cheated anybody, always paid on time and is there on set with you most of the time. And yes, his Line ID says Ae Fatman, and yes, he is a fat man – and proud of it.

5. Candy Group Modeling
Candy Group Modeling gets a lot of jobs for kids, but they also find jobs for adults. They will setup an appointment with you and have your headshots taken (for free). Candy Group Modeling don’t give you the headshots, but it makes sure that your pictures are up to date and high quality. They are professional to work with.
6. Fay Modeling
I personally have never worked with Fay, but my friends in the industry have worked with her and trust her. She is reliable and gets a lot of work.

7. Tori Lao-Lee
Tori is another veteran in the field. She takes care of special talents, like dancers, stunt men and other special talents for events, music videos and movies, of course. Tori’s a sweetheart with a lot of experience.
8. MasterClass Studio
Well…we are not working as a full-time talent agency, but we do quite a bit of agency work. We get all kind of work from commercials to movies. We work all around. As agency, doing castings, casting directors and we also have our own productions. You can send us your profile to:
Line ID: @masterclassstudio
Now that I look back, all of the above, including myself, have been in this industry for a long time. We have proven ourselves in the field and stood out through reliability and connections.
It is mostly the new talent agencies that cause trouble and are unreliable because they are trying to get a foothold in the industry and don’t know yet how this industry works. So be wary of new agents. The ones above are the ones I trust.
