We represent women and men for fashion print, commercial print, runway and radio, TV, film.

For the women’s division you must be a minimum height of 5′ 8″ and no taller than 6′ 0″ (in bare feet). We will see girls at 5’7″ between the ages of 13-16. In addition we are looking for female talent between the sizes of 0 – 4, 10 and 14-18. Beginning models are usually between the ages of 13-20.

You will hear from us only if we are interested in setting up an appointment for you to come into the agency.

If you are an established model looking for representation please have your “mother” agency submit you to us. If you have no mother agency please email your portfolio to us.

There is no upfront fee to be with the agency. Our Agency takes a commission for any work that we secure for you.

We have been in business for over 50 years and have an excellent reputation. We will be happy to furnish you with a list of clients with whom we have an on-going working relationship. The agency does not charge any fees up front but works strictly for commissions on work that we secure for our talent. In addition we are licensed under the Talent Agency Act – license #115 and we are a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business.

A full service model and talent agency books models and talent for a variety of jobs such as print, runway, on- camera, TV, commercial, industrial film, and promotional work.

No. In this industry the client has the right to select the model or talent that best suits the job. Agents can suggest whom they feel might be the best selection for a specific job; however, the client makes the final selection.

The Agency will decide which division you will be placed in and then help you develop your marketing tools. For most modeling work you will need photos in a portfolio that show a variety of looks and a composite card. For acting and on camera TV work, you will need an 8 x 10 commercial headshot and resume. In both cases an on-line presence can be very beneficial and clients increasingly rely on finding models and talent using on-line portfolios (we can show you how to obtain this).

There is limited work on the weekends. Promotional work, fashion shows and hair shows are often booked on weekends. Print and on camera TV work takes place Monday-Friday 9-5pm.

If you are under 18, it is fine, and many times required that you bring ONE parent or guardian with you. It is never considered professional to bring siblings or friends along.

You must always arrive looking just like your images. Anytime you change your look (lose weight, color your hair, etc.) you must update your images. Again, that is one of the beauties of using on-line portfolios. They allow nearly instant updates.

An agency represents many talent and although they promote you, you are one of many clients. Managers work with few talent and its more of a personal relationship. Managers push you to many different agencies for projects giving you a variety of opportunities. Managers take about 15% and agencies take 20%. You can have an agency without having a manager, but you would rarely have a manager without having an agency.

You will be given a choice of signing an exclusive or non- exclusive agreement. Most models and talent opt for a non-exclusive contract, and it depends on your market and the division you are listed under. Most fashion divisions are somewhat exclusive in each market. If you are a commercial or promotions model or an actor/actress, you are allowed to be with more then one agency as long as it is a non- exclusive contract with each.
