Casting directories are websites, similar to that of job recruitment sites, that advertise hundreds and thousands of work opportunities for models. Individuals or companies needing models will create a casting on the site outlining exactly what they are looking for, the type of model, the nature of the shoot, the location and the amount that they are paying for the job that a model can then apply to directly.
