HOW DO I BECOME A MODEL WITH SHOWCASE ?

1. First, submit photographs of yourself (a head shot and a full-length) to our agency. Label the back with your name, height, eye color, hair color, clothing sizes, shoe size, age and phone number. Females over 12 should also include bust, waist and hip measurements. Snapshots from a home camera or Polaroid are fine. We need to see what you really look like - NO GLAMOUR SHOTS!  4 X 6's are fine.
You may also email shots to info@showcasetalent.com.
No more than 4 shots please.

2. If I feel that I will be able to get work for you, I will call you back to set up a time to for you to come into the agency for an appointment.

3. We would then discuss the necessary steps to take.


WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MYSELF A BETTER MODEL?

Respect your body! In the modeling industry, your body is your business! If you abuse your body by smoking, doing drugs or drinking, it will show and will cause you harm.   You may be able to get by with it for a while, but eventually, it will take its toll. Drink a lot of water and eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables. Exercise regularly and get your rest!

HOW DO I BECOME AN ACTOR WITH SHOWCASE?     

1.  You will need to submit a color headshot as well as a 3/4 body shot along with your acting resume.  Please refer to preferred resume format for adults and youth.
2. Please keep jewelry to a minimum since it should not be the focal point in the picture.
3. Please use solid colors whioh compliment your eyes.   
No logos, No turtlenecks, No busy prints or stripes. 
4. Shots can be done outside in natural light or inside but no shadows on the face. 
5. Vertical shots are preferred-Making the casting director take the time to turn the shot around  to view, is not usually a good idea when they ae viewing so many pics.
6. It is wise to use a makeup artist for teenagers and older.
7. If you wear glasses, then use them in the picture.
8. We typically need Commercial headshots showing a full smile and lots of energy in the shot.
9. If possible, I would love to have a Theatrical headshot also showing a more serious or contemplative look.

WHAT CAN I DO TO  MAKE MYSELF A BETTER ACTOR?

Study your art!  Just as dancers must continuously take class to improve their dancing skills and technique, so must actors continue to take class to be their best  at auditions.  Please refer to a list of reputable classes listed on the Referral page.  Showcase Talent has no affiliation with any of these groups.
