Punctuality Counts!

The purpose of the Introduction is to give you information on how the Audition will proceed. Being on time for this will save us all time later. If accepted into the Guild, you will be expected to arrive at a job on time, and your ability to be at the Audition on time will definitely count in your favor.

If, for some reason, you cannot be a the Audition on time, please contact before the audition date.

becoming a model

Art modeling is an ideal job for dancers because it calls on your sense of line, your spatial awareness, your authentic presence, and of course your creativity. The modeling sessions are often a deeply meditative experience, and the artists and typically grateful for your willingness to share your spirit.

I can honestly say art modeling is the most rewarding work I’ve ever done.

–Rachel Howard, dance critic, author, and Bay Area Models’ Guild member

You must have internet access – most work is offered and accepted via email.
Having reliable access to motorized transportation, willingness to go to outlying areas, and weekday availability will also count highly in your favor.

Please bring:

  • Your application, available for download here
  • Head shot and full body photos (these will not be returned)
  • A $20 audition fee (cash only)
  • A robe (private individual auditions will be done in the nude)

BART: Civic Center Station

Muni: Any bus that goes down Market

Car: On-street parking where you can find it. Please allow yourself ample time for parking and walking. Building security at the Odd Fellows Hall requires you to take the elevator. Let the operator know what you are there for, and she or he will bring you to the proper floor.

We highly recommend reading the rest of this document (continued in the “What You Need To Know” section) in order to better understand what it means to be a Guild Model.

If you are selected to join the Guild, you must also be able to attend a mandatory Orientation Meeting, held within one month of the audition.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Thank you.
