You Need to Know

Our Best Advice:

Don't Start Alone...

Get Valid Representation! Representation through an agency is crucial. The industry is way too crazy to navigate without proper guidance. Flying blind will most definitely compromise your earning potential, and possibly your safety. A reputable agency like Motley Models, only books professional shoots where the content is being used for legal purposes. We work with the best companies, so when we ...

I See Fake Agents:

Everywhere!

More than half of the agencies in the industry are unlicensed and operate outside the guidelines and safety measures set-up by the California State Labor Commissioner. Those agencies do not disclose that information, along with not providing illegitimate talent license numbers. Fortunately, most studios do not book with unlicensed agents, essentially not rewarding them for cutting corners and failing to ...

Knock ’em Dead Kid:

Do You Have Talent Scouts?

Yes. We have "legitimate" talent scouts that refer models to us all the time.  However, we get emails from models all over the world that have been duped by shady individuals posing as someone that works for us. A word of warning: NEVER send photos or personal information to anyone that's not listed on this site unless you clear it ...

How To Get Started:

Complete an Application

Simply fill-out the Model Form on the "Join Our Crue" page. If you have question prior to filling out the form, you can email them to dave@motleymodels.com or call our office at: 818.483.6525. We do not represent male talent.

Fast Cash:

How Soon can I Expect to Start Making Money?

Once we make the decision to sign a model, most are working paid jobs within 3 to 5-days. However, if earning a quick $5k, and bouncing is your plan, you may want to reconsider. A quick stop in the business does pay well, but comes with everyone around you knowing how you got it. No matter how careful you think ...

Keeping it Legit:

It's a Risky Business...

Motley Models books ALL talent ONLY with legitimate studios currently and actively shooting within the United States. We have a thorough vetting process to make sure our models are shooting legal content for industry rates (or higher), and also ensure they're treated professionally while engaged in a production. For more information about some of the amazing companies that book our ...

Managing Our Models:

How Many Models do You Manage?

Our team manages anywhere from 30-40 models at any given time.  Ensuring that all of our talent is comfortable with their career choices, provide any mentoring, and that they are receiving optimal compensation for their work. We are happy to arrange an introduction for any girl considering Motley Models, who may wish to speak with some of our actively working talent, ...

No Boys Allowed:

Girls Club Only!

Sorry... We do not represent male talent.

Sumthin’ For Nuthin’:

The Truth About Casting Couches...

As a model, it’s important to know the differentiation between legitimate job opportunities and unprofessional advances, that resemble “loose promises” more than validated forms of income. Casting couches are not just an urban legend. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for lower level or fake companies to request sexual auditions with the promise of paid work. This is not how things work. If ...

Dr. Feelgood:

She'll Make You Feel Alright...

Taking care of one's health is key to a models career; we understand health care can be expensive. Motley Models works with two licensed physicians that are on call 24/7. These doctors can diagnose many common health issues like the cold, flu, UTIs, etc., and if necessary, can prescribe medications. They work with us on their rates to keep it ...

Craigslist or Sexy Jobs:

Don't Go Down This Path...

Stay Away From Job Listing Sites Offering Adult Work We’ve seen too many girls get into very bad situations from responding to online ads.  There's rarely a vetting process to ensure those posting ads on these listing sites are legitimate. Those sites are full of fake agents and other shady individuals who lure naive models to act as an "escort", or to do ...
