Modeling is the backbone of many industries around the world. Models play an integral role in brand awareness, visibility and lift, which are crucial in influencing customers’ willingness to purchase brands. However, for models finding the right modeling agency that protects and promotes the interests of models is usually a daunting task. Cases of models being underpaid for their valuable services are not very uncommon in the industry. Therefore, modeling agencies such as Brown Modeling Agency are popular among many aspiring and career models due to their strong commitment to protecting and promoting the rights of models signed up with them.
Founding: Turning Experience into Practice
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Brown Modeling Agency is one of the leading modeling agencies in the Greater Austin Area. The company has grown in stature since its founding in 2015. The reputation of the company is built on two key pillars: the experience of the founders and high quality and comprehensive services it offers to both its clients and the models. The agency was formed following the acquisition of Heyman Talent-South by Wilhelmina Austin. The resulting entity was re-launched as Brown Modeling Agency. Before the acquisition, Wilhelmina had partnered with JB Models and Talent Austin to form Wilhelmina Brown. JB Models and Talent Austin had been founded by former experienced model, Justin Brown in 2008.
After joining up with Wilhelmina in 2010, Mr. Brown became the new chief executive officer of the resulting organization, Wilhelmina Brown. Justin Brown used his long experience as a model working in several big cities including New York and Los Angeles and drove the company to success whose nadir was the formation of Brown Modeling Agency. Following the merger, Mr. Brown was appointed as the chief executive officer and president of the company while the founder of Heyman Talent-South, Michael B. Bonnée was appointed as the head of Brown Modeling Agency’s theoretical division.
The merger between Heyman Talent-South and Wilhelmina Austin significantly expanded the market base of Brown Modeling Agency. The merger led to the combination of both theatrical and modeling services to transform the company into a full service entity. This leveraging of strengths enables the company to offer a wide variety of services including print, commercial, industrial videos and trade shows modeling. Their models and actor are also available model corporate and promotional events, fashion and runaways. They also have models and actors who can act in films and television programs.
