Why did you choose 2DM to represent you?
2DM was actually the very first agency to represent me. We have a good connection, so I just stayed with them.
What does it mean to be represented by an agency and how do they help you develop your career?
Well, you can always talk with them, and they’ll give you advice while looking at it from a business perspective, which can be really helpful. In the sense of what is a good job for you or not. Sometimes something may seem like a bad job, but it can bring in some options, you know?
The agent is the one who should take care of you, they're looking at what’s going on, and they have a good idea of your development and what direction you’re heading in. Basically, they tell you what you should do and what you shouldn’t. There’s always someone to take care of the money and the contract aspect of the shoots. Talking about money can always be tricky, so agents are a big help in that department.
What are the benefits of being represented by an agency?
I think the right time to be signed to an agent is when you feel that you don't need it anymore. You have to already be quite busy because their job is mainly to organize everything. As a makeup artist, we might work nearly every day. So if we had to manage all of the planes we take, the hotels and dealing with clients, it just wouldn't be possible to work everyday. They also build relationships with clients, make appointments with potential clients and propose us for jobs.
