Every model needs to have a certain document called modeling voucher. This particular document is actually an invoice that you should bring to your every modeling gig. This is to make sure that you get paid on time. Both you and your client have to sign it after you finish each of your job. Be it a photo shoot, an acting stint, or other gigs, a modeling voucher is very much needed. Once you are booked, you are given a pad of blank vouchers by your agent. It has three carbon copies with different colors. The first copy is for the client, the second is for your agent, and the last one is your own copy.
Okay, so you ask what is on the modeling voucher. On the modeling voucher, it contains the details of your job description, there is also a space for information on your client’s company like the address and contact information as well as a little blank space for your name and signature. It will serve as a contract between you and your client after both parties signed it.
But the good thing is, most of the information asked in the modeling voucher should be filled up by the client such as the company name, address and contact information, the time you started and finished your job, the time duration, the job description, as well as the pay.
You use one modeling voucher for each job booking. For example, you have two bookings to do in one day, then you need to bring two modeling vouchers. If you forget to bring your voucher, worry not because you still have your options. There are probably several models in the production, so you may borrow one from one of them. You may also call your agent to send you a copy of the modeling voucher through e-mail or fax. Or you can tell your client honestly that you forget to bring your voucher. Ask the client if it is okay with them that you will just bring one with you the next day.
But to make sure that this scenario will not happen to you, always have an extra page or two of the modeling vouchers on your bag. Or have a back-up plan. Save a photo of the modeling voucher on your phone so you can just print it right away if ever you need it.
