7 Top Rated Modeling Agencies in Georgia
Georgia, especially Atlanta, is an up and coming market for new models. Here are the 7 top rated modeling agencies for all backgrounds to get scouted with.
Georgia is what is called a "Second Tier" market in the entertainment industry, since many modeling shoots do not take place in the area. "First Tier" markets like New York, Los Angeles and Miami have dozens of highly ranked modeling agencies since that is where most productions take place. Over the past few years, many modeling agents have planted routes in Atlanta and have grown to host a number of legit agencies for those of all looks and backgrounds. Advertisers want diverse models and Atlanta has proven to provide them. Here are the best 7 ranked to get started with.

How to Apply to Modeling Agencies
Applying to a modeling agency is easy. While many have websites that allow direct submission, having the best materials to submit makes a huge difference. Researching an agency is a must!
Are Modeling Portfolios worth it?
Yes and No. As a Georgia model starting out, spending a ton of money on modeling shoots is not worth it in the long run, since you need fresh pictures at least once per year. While photographs are always required to become a model (expect to invest in them) photography studios charging thousands are not worth it for many. Always research local photographers or work with an experienced company like Latitude Talent, who provide a platform for new models.
