If you don’t have any modeling experience, we suggest you book a portfolio photographer to gain some experience in front of the camera and start your portfolio. Click here for a list of our recommended photographers.

is there a fee to join?
No, there is no fee to join but membership is by invitation only or subject to approval.

why should I use thebookr instead of going to an agent?
The traditional modeling agency takes 20% of what you earn in addition to charging you monthly fees for your web portfolio, couriers and other miscellaneous management services. After all these fees are taken out, it's not out of the norm to be paid three months after the actual day of the job. Thebookr takes only a 10% fee and you get paid 2 days after the job is completed.

Models have no guarantee that they are getting equal exposure as other models to all potential clients with an agent middleman structure. With thebookr, all models can be found and seen through the browse and search functionality by every client that comes to site.

With full transparency, models on thebookr are able to upload their own images, see feedback from clients, accept/reject booking themselves, and ultimately, manage their own career and promotions.

why should I make my clients book and pay me through
The funds for the job have already been released so there is no delay in payment or having to call the client for collections. Having a historical record of all your jobs on thebookr will help you manage your rate negotiation and report taxes at the end of the year.

when and how do I get paid?
You will be paid 2 days after the job through Paypal so you have to sign up for a Paypal account if you don’t have one already.

i’m new to modeling, can I get some advice and help?
Absolutely. Contact the founder directly at joyce (at) thebookr (dot) com
