Talent/Modeling Agency Licensing

Before signing up with a company, make sure it has a talent or modeling agency license, if that is required in your state, and make sure it is a valid license, i.e. the license has not expired.

Not all states require a talent agency license, but some of those which do like California, Florida, and Texas, provide online databases so you can quickly check to see if a company has an agency license (see links below).

Talent agency licenses must be renewed, so make sure they are still valid. A talent agency in Texas which was prosecuted by the Attorney General of Texas operated with a license which had expired.
