Due to the high volume of requests we receive each day at JDS, we have devised a simple process that will help in accommodating your needs. Please note that ALL REQUESTS MUST BE SENT THROUGH THE OFFICE OF JDS. BY NO MEANS SHOULD A CLIENT BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY TO HELP EXPEDITE THE PROCESS.
All interview requests with a client of JDS must be e-mailed, faxed, or mailed to us. E-mail is the preferred method and will speed up the process on both ends. The document should clearly state the media outlet (magazine, television show, radio station, etc…) and name of affiliation. The document should also state what the request pertains to. We will need to know your time frame for the interview, when the interview will run (month of the magazine, air date, periodical date, etc…) and what angle you wish to pursue in the interview. We require at least a week’s notice for all requests. If the interview is to be on camera or will run in conjunction with a photo shoot, travel arrangements, hair, and make-up will be discussed upfront. Furthermore, we reserve the right to remove any photo we feel is not a proper representation of our client. We work regularly with several professional fashion stylists, hair stylists and make-up artists and encourage collaboration with them in dealings with our clients. Consistency and comfort play major roles in our relationship with the talent.
Photos and Bio Request
If you are requesting a Photo or Bio of one of our clients, we will need to know your media outlet affiliation and what the photo/bio will be used for. You will be able to pull up both a photo and bio from this website by clicking on the individual’s name in the JDS CLIENTS page.
If you are requesting an appearance by one of our clients we will need to know the reason for the appearance, if media will be present, and whether there will be television coverage. Travel arrangements along with hair and make-up will be discussed on a case-by-case basis. Furthermore, if the appearance is to entail a task by the client, such as a speech or as a presenter, we reserve the right to make proper adjustments to the copy for our client.
Please note that we provide advice for the clients we represent, however, ultimately the decision is that of the client.
