WELCOME TO SOFIA MANAGEMENT
Who Is Sofia management ?
In August 2016 after months of research and networking, Actor/Singer Rachel Spencer opened the Talent company Sofia Management. Rachel has been in the performing profession since the age of 9 starting in Oliver Twist at the Manchester Opera House, which led to large television roles and a 96 episode contract with the BBC in ‘Doctors’. Rachel switched between musical theatre and television and made plenty of contacts on the way. After a great run of work business became quiet and Rachel felt work had become about teaching and helping others, so decided to set up alone and make that her aim. Helping others gain confidence and be pushed in the right direction was something Rachel wanted to be a part of. Sofia Management not only offers casting opportunities but also workshops with current casting directors and directors.

What we do
As a Management we provide different sections of the acting process.
As a Management Company we provide different sections of the acting process. Firstly, we offer photo-shoots. Our photo-shoots are run at Gorton Monastery in a studio by Mark Copeland of Envision Images. Mark has been our photographer since we opened and his work includes Magazine covers for example County Brides, Bridal Magazines, North west best bridal photographer. Mark also shoots for most of the weddings in the Greek islands. Mark creates fantastic head-shots for the business which are then used to put our clients forward for work. We have fantastic help choosing our clients with workshops by BBC Casting Director Ben Cogan and ITV Casting Director Pip Short. Workshops allow our clients to work with current business professionals gaining the best experience and help possible. We also offer workshops around every 6 months. For the modelling side we offer catwalk experience, portfolios, advice and support.
A few years ago I was lucky enough to work with a gentleman called Mark Copeland of Envision Images. He offered his time for free for us to work with some models. The friendship and partnership has gone from there. Envision Images itself has become a hugely successful business and we are proud to be associated with them.
When the books are open for the Modelling side of Sofia Management we look for a strong portfolio. However, when starting out in the modelling career clients don’t have a portfolio, so, if we believe they have potential we help them with their portfolio by working TFP with photographers, (Time For Print). It also helps photographers to build their portfolio too. Modelling is not all about looks it is about holding yourself, posture, passion and hard work. We as a company encourage all sizes and shapes.
Here at Sofia Management we get asked a lot of questions on all sorts of subjects to do with the world of talent management, so to help you we’ve started with just a few of the most frequently asked ones.
The simple answer is none. We take on any size, any ethnicity as long as they are hard-working, honest and good at their art.
We want a good set of head-shots, an comprehensive profile listing your biography, history, any specialist skills and talents along with a strong show-reel.
If you’re just starting out and don’t have any of these, please don’t worry, we can assist you.
Sofia Management run showcase days where acts can perform for our company and venues in the surrounding area to gain bookings through-out the year.
We are a non-sole company which means you can also work for other agents, however any work found by Sofia Management goes through us and only us.
