Exact words Jed Root told us at the Makeup Show:
You contact the agencies literally right now, mid August. Send them an email. Don't ask a lot of questions or give too much info. Give them just the info they need to consider you. Attach a single picture or two. Nothing large or it won't load and they will not wait for it, so you get passed up.
**EDIT If they are intersted they will contact you to see more NOT me... lol. Yes contact me, I'm Jed's right hand gal
damn iPad always flucks me up!
You can also drop by and simply drop of your book. (me adding: I personally would start with the email and wait a few days and then I would drop my "disposable" book off with the receptionist as a follow up, and then email once a week after that, with a 1 line email that I am still very ready, willing, able sorta thing. And of course contact info below my signature)
He said that Quite likely the book will not be returned to you so plan accordingly. They are appreciative of the drop off vs. waiting and tying up time of staff at an inopportune time.
And yes for anyone curious, they are pretty exact because I took extensive notes on my iPad thought his entire keynote
