How much does it cost to join?

How does it work?
We keep it simple for you. After speaking with one of our agents, we create an online profile for you which is added onto our database and available for casting agents and coordinators, photographers and various other agencies. Our Agency is contacted by a wide range of casting directors, photographers, marketing companies and advertisers for TV, film, photography, media and event/promotional work.
Our agency provides photo profiles to our clients of anyone suitable and available for their job opportunities. Once photo selection has been made there may be a small casting process known as an audition which our agency will explain and coach you through in support of hopefully getting chosen. Generally, no acting skills are required depending on the role. Everything is explained, negotiated and contracts in place for transparency.
The production crew will look after your needs and wellbeing throughout the job with the intention of providing a comfortable and fun experience.
Upon completion of the work, the client pays Exposure Agency and we will pay you, immediately after we receive payment, into your bank. Our agency is responsible for paying Tax for those with an IRD Number, pay GST on invoices supplied and deduct the standard agency 20% commission, known as the booking fee.
