If you are considering a career in the modelling industry, you might find plenty of people willing to get you started - but beware unscrupulous agencies and business practices. Because there are no special licensing requirements for modeling agencies in Alberta, knowing about standard procedures in the industry may save time, money, and aggravation. Among the steps you can take, you should:

1. Check the prices, and the promises of several agencies.
2. Check for proof that the agency has working models.
3. Never pay the agency for photos. Pay the photographer directly.
4. Verify any client with whom you may have an appointment.
The above information provided by CBC Marketplace.

An agent's role is to promote the talent who has contracted for their marketing services, negotiate the most favorable contract for the talent and collect a commission from the talent. Remember, the agent will be working for you, not vice versa.

Carefully review any contracts or other paperwork presented by the agency prior to signing, and be confident that you understand the details. Remember, once you have signed a contract, you are agreeing to its terms, and you cannot change your mind; the contract, once signed, should be treated as legally binding to both parties.

The Alliance of Canadian Cinema Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) offers some pointers in avoiding common scams associated with acting and modeling:
Talent agencies should never charge an up-front fee for their services; instead, a commission rate of 15% on any work procured is standard in the industry. Further, an agent should be willing to assist with your resume and the production of headshots, and shouldn't require you to use a particular photographer or makeup artist. If you are being pressured to use certain support people, there may be an unethical connection between the agency and the service provider.In addition, reputable agencies do not pressure you to sign a contract, display pictures of famous people they do not represent, use names that are similar to well-known agencies or advertise for 'new faces' for commercials, films or modeling, no experience necessary.

The following information could be helpful when it comes to selecting a photographer to create your portfolio:

1. Reputable photographers do not advertise in the newspaper classified section. newspaper classified section.
2. An initial photo shoot is usually done in a studio or other controlled situation.
3. The first set of photos will likely be in black and white, as this is less expensive.
4. For a photo shoot, professional hair and make-up is standard.
