We accept people from all walks of life, ages, ethnicities, sizes and shapes. In fact, most clients want ‘real people’ and ‘character faces’, so as far as we’re concerned EVERYBODY has the right look!
Plus! We don’t charge any fees upfront, so it costs you nothing to get started.
If you can approach each job with an outgoing, relaxed and fantastic attitude no matter the situation, then you’re exactly what we need!
Yes you can, but ONLY if you hold a VALID VISA with WORK RIGHTS and you must bring this proof with you at your Meet & Greet.
If you decide to join our talent agency, you can only be with us. For us to represent you in the best way possible, you can't be signed to another agency at the same time. Most agencies if not all, will have this exclusivity clause.
No. We only accpet talent who live within the greater Auckland region. On occasion we may accept talent from as far as Whangarei or Hamilton but you must check with us first before applying.
A great photo makes all the difference, so we say ‘yes’, and highly recommend you invest in some. If you are thinking of joining Fresh Talent, check out our FRESH SPECIALS page for photo packages that come with free membership.
If you don’t have any suitable or current photo’s we will take headshots for your profile to get you started which is free when you JOIN US.
Yes, you do. We call it our ‘Meet & Greet’ session where you finalise some paperwork, we take your photos and discuss anything you want to know. Our office is based in Kingsland, Auckland.
When you click on Join Us and submit your completed online application, you will be emailed all the Meet & Greet info.
There is a ONE-OFF joining fee which gives you a lifetime membership on our books.
We have two payment options to choose from:
PAY AS YOU GO – this is our ‘no upfront fees’ option which means you pay nothing until you get booked on a job. We then deduct your joining fee from your first pays until it’s paid off. So we pay you, before you pay us!
PAY NOW – choose this option and you receive a massive 20% discount off the joining fee.
|AGE||PAY AS YOU GO||PAY NOW|
If you pay upfront for either our CLASSIC or SUPREME photo packages you can join us for free! Check out the FRESH SPECIALS page for more info.
Yes, we charge 20% including gst on all jobs we book you on and it's deducted from your quoted gross rate.
For local TV shows, rates start from minimum wage *GROSS per hour and up. For commercial, photography and film work, the rates vary and can be from $150-250 GROSS per day or up to hundreds or thousands of dollars per job.
*GROSS RATES are always quoted for jobs which means before commission and tax is deducted.
As an extra or actor working for Fresh talent, you are considered a 'part-time self employed' contractor. This means you can claim certain expenses against any schedular payments (the money we pay you) you receive from us. It also means you have to file a tax return and then ACC will send you an invoice for their ACC levies.
We will provide you further information at your Meet & Greet, but strongly suggest you seek professional advice regarding your IRD and ACC obligations whilst working as a contractor for us.
