Modeling and commercial industry leader, The Brown Modeling Agency determines, guides and coaches the most skilled and reliable talent from its headquarters in Austin, Texas.
The Brown Agency was brought about by the acquisition last year by Wilhelmina Austin of Heyman Talent-South. The combined company, which intends to make available a more expansive range of talent while also increasing its playing field, carries out its business with models and actors in film, commercials, television, voiceover, print, fashion, runaway and more.
Justin Brown, who worked as chief executive of Wilhelmina Austin, is now the Brown Agency president and Heyman Talent-South founder Michael Bonnee will head up the agency’s theatrical division.
Those interested in a modeling career can take a look at the Brown Agency blog, (blog.brownagency.co/category/model-tips>) where the company has sketched out a number of tips for those aspiring to be a model or actors.
For example, answering the question can I be a model, the company recommends while tall (minimum requirement of 5 foot 8 inches) and thin comes to mind initially there are additional places available to others as well.
The blog outlines information on runway and high fashion modeling, commercial print and commercial television. It also highlights how there are a high demand for plus size models US sizes 10-16.
In addition, the blog states companies are interested in making the most of everyday people in their commercials, such as grandparents for real life families.
The agency teaches models how to work the camera by instructing them on how to prepare, craft their thoughts and determine their finest character. In addition, they are taught how important it is to best present themselves to the customer.
The Brown Modelling Agency website also puts forward ways to start a modeling career. Deciding on what type of modelling you are interested in as well as identifying your body type are two places to get you on your way.
According to Market Wired, it also recommends going online to search for top modeling agencies that fit your type of modeling aspirations and follow up with reading and studying all about the agencies including reviews of them. Make sure the agency is genuine and do not ever pay to sign on with an agency as legitimate agencies never solicit funds.
Another guide is to remember to have a few professional headshots and body shots always ready.
Some of the full service agency’s models work with national and international brands that include Louis Vuitton, Toyota, L’Oreal among others. And many models have participated on runways for Austin Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week among other shows.
