What if I am already a working model?

If you are an established model looking for representation in Tulsa and the surrounding area, please have your "mother" agency submit you to us. If you have no mother agency. click on the Scout tab and submit your application.

Is there a fee to be seen by the agency or to sign with the agency?

There is no up-front fee to be with the agency. The Linda Layman Agency earns a commission for any work that we secure for you which means we don't get paid until you get paid.

How do I know if the Linda Layman Agency is legitimate?

We have been in business since 1971 and have established an excellent reputation. The agency does not charge any fees up front but works strictly for commissions on work that we secure for our talent. We are a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business.

Do I have to take modeling or acting classes?

While we are not a "school" we do offer classes in modeling and acting. They are not manditory but are recommended to make yourself as competitive as possible with the others who are vying for the same bookings. As an example we would not be able to send you out for an informal booking if you don't know what it is.

What about Talent Conventions?

There are a lot of these all around the country and the tough part is knowing WHO is legitimate and WHEN to attend. After 40 years in the business, we know who IS legitimate, who brings in REAL talent scouts and who offers you a REAL shot. Therefore we do periodically take talent to events we believe are worthy of your attention when the time is RIGHT and you are READY.
