TalentSoup loves people and we've learned that the new face of advertising, for a lot of companies, looks like you. Yes, you. Professional model with years of experience, fresh face just getting your feet wet, actor with some stage time, or someone with no experience whatsoever. The Soup contains models that command $8000 for a day's worth of work and grandmothers that make $100 an hour and are in it for the fun and experience. Regardless, we have a spot for you and we'd love to serve you up to our client's advertising media projects.
We define Talent this way:
No, TalentSoup talent live all over the U.S. Your zip code will help Clients find talent around their project city. Amazingly, Talent from all over the world are signing up right now! Okay, maybe not at this exact second but you get it...
Our business model is built on booking talent, not selling them a worthless web page. You decide how to partner with us (free or paid) and yes, Entry Brands get submitted to relevant projects, not just paid Brands. Here is more info-
To sign up all you have to do is: A)Fill out the online form. B)Upload photos (remember, the higher the quality photos you use the better your chances at getting booked. Use clear images that show off your look and personality. Of course, if you are a hand model, be sure to include some hand shots. The same is true for swimwear and lingerie. We want to see you and what you normally look like on a day-to-day basis too. We are looking for CLEAR photos that capture your personality.) . C) Once we receive your completed Webcomp, it will be reviewed by a Talent Chef and you will receive an e-mail confirming that your profile has been activated for clients to consider for their project.
ALWAYS! You have total control over what information you provide, adding or removing images and the types of jobs you want to be considered for. Just remember your login and password. We make every effort to provide real value for our talent but know that sometimes we'll part ways. Cancelling your account is easy. Just go to the Communication Settings tab in your Webcomp, scroll to the bottom and click the button that says CANCEL MY ACCOUNT. Follow the instructions and you are done. Of course, we'd welcome you back should something change.
None of your information is accessible by the public, ever. Zip, zilch, nada.
We value our partnership and work with Talent's best interests in mind. You are not represented by us, you are only presented by us. You are listed in our marketplace, where we provide you opportunities for success. We will present you with opportunities, it is up to you to accept or decline them. We coordinate the details, then it's up to you to shine! Because we are brokering projects, lots of small modeling agencies have chosen to get all of their Talent in the Mix.
When TalentSoup Clients present a project with Talent needs that fit your look, we will submit you. It's automatic so the Client gets to see exactly the look they need and no one plays favorites. It's that easy. Keep your profile current so we can locate you when a job comes your way.
We book talent in ALL types of media projects (photography, video, film) but concentrate on advertising media. Some of the busiest areas are: lifestyle, fashion, business-to-business, marketing materials, non-profit, advertising and promotion...from local companies to international corporations, we handle it all. In your Webcomp, you select the Types of projects you want to be considered for. This ensures we match the right looks to the right projects, and you don't get submitted for something you are not up for.
That depends on the project and your experience level. Seasoned Models start at $150 an hour plus Usage, with Real People generally starting at $100 an hour (for adults). If you are chosen for a project, we will present you with the project compensation and you decide if you are interested. TalentSoup projects typically pay you the day of the shoot but always within 30 days of the booking.
Most projects take place during the work-week. Some projects may require a flexible schedule but usually give you some notice when the photo shoot / film project will take place.
Our system is case sensitive so you can use a parent's email address for multiple kids. Here's how:
Thats it! Remember to keep your children's photos updated at least every 4 months. Your kids may not get submitted with old photos.
If you still have questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

JO (Kennesaw, GA) over 10 years agoJO (Atlanta, GA) I have been a member for approx one year and have had no luck either. I don't get it.
Eric (Staff) over 10 years ago@JO - First, the new candids you added look great, as clients really like to see more than just studio work in your Webcomp. Your existing portfolio images only show part of your look. Remember that fashion is not a huge part of our business. We are focused on advertising media. As such, make sure you have photos that look your age too. Diversity wins the day every time. Client's need to see lots of different looks (settings, wardrobe, etc) to help them imagine you in their project. Hang in there. Know this business is a marathon, not a sprint. There are no easy paths to success!
JH (Lawrenceville, GA) about 10 years agoMy son has been submitted for 10 projects, but has not been chosen for any casting calls! Are we doing something wrong with the photos we have posted, he really is cute!!!!
FD (Winston, GA) about 10 years agoMy husband and I were cast for the Piedmont Better commercial, and we were very impressed with how we were treated, and of course the professionalism of Rad @ Talent soup made for a very exciting. experience!!! Thank you very much.
Eric (Staff) about 10 years ago@JH - First, remember that this is a very competitive business. While I'm sure your son is photogenic, there are many factors that go into getting booked. I'd suggest mixing up his photos, changing the Main image, etc. to see if that helps change things. As they say, in this business, you've got to kiss a lot of frogs. Hang in there!
AM (Meansville, GA) almost 10 years agoHello! My name is Brittany Miller and I have added my 3 children to work as extras in Atlanta Ga and surrounding areas. Amber 7, Sam 4, Evy 5mo. Please call soon...they love our "city trips" because we mall hop.
RW (Marietta, GA) almost 10 years agoHello, I was wondering why my daughter has not been submitted for any jobs. Does no one ask for teen african american girls? Ever?
Eric (Staff) almost 10 years ago@RW - First, your daughter is adorable! We've reviewed her Webcomp and it looks great. Digging deeper we see she was last submitted in December of 2012. Unfortunately, that's the last project we've managed that needer her demographic. She's in a bit of an age limbo, as projects typically shop for younger or older girls. Hang in there!
