Looking for a talent agent?

Looking for a Bay Area talent agent? Find San Francisco and Bay Area talent agencies that specializing in casting movies, commercials, live industrials as well as fashion and print models.

Below you will find a list of potential San Francisco Bay Area agents, so how do you get them to meet with you? The most common (and most difficult) way to get an agent is to submit your headshot and résumé, unsolicited, by mail. The VAST majority of these photos end up trashed.

Most submissions will sit in a stack for weeks or months before they are even opened. Timing is everything for unsolicited submissions. For commercial agents, casting and taking on new clients is a constant, year-round process. But for theatrical agents, the best time to look for an agent is during the summer hiatus, when television casting is extremely slow because shows are in reruns. The worst time of year to look for an agent is during pilot season, when TV casting is busiest. Pilot season is loosely early January to late February.

Tips on Submit your headshot and resume to a Bay Area Talent agent.

Your submission should include a color headshot and your résumé printed or stapled on the back, and a brief cover letter. Keep it simple and never use colored paper! These should go out in a manila envelope, closed with the brads but not sealed.
