The world of career modeling or acting is a very intimidating one. Standing on the outside looking in, anyone who has even the slightest aspirations to join, it can look like a far and distant world. That is where an agency such as Brown can make a difference. Based in Austin, Texas, Brown Agency was founded by Justin Brown. And they specialize in fashion, print, commercial print, commercial print, film, and television. Coming from a modeling background himself, it was only natural that Justin Brown decided to start his own agency. Armed with a business management degree he started the company JB Models and Talent back in 2008. Two years later the company was licensed by the famous Wilhelmina National Agency. This gave Brown Agency a lot more resources to work with.
The reason for Justin’s attraction towards a city like Austin was very simple. He found the city to be open to new ideas and it was the right size. Austin, which can be described as the little big city, has a vibrant television, film, modeling and of course music scene. Compared to most cities, Austin has a more open culture. All these factors put together made Austin a natural choice for establishing the agency there. But what about the day to day stuff? How well does talent do at Brown agency? This is a question best answered with numbers. As of 2015, Brown agency oversaw the career of 450 models and actors! Not bad for an agency with around 10 employees. Many of them go on to bigger careers in modeling and acting.
So, for those who are looking to get into the world of modeling or entertainment, it would be a good idea to take a closer look at Brown Agency. They hold an open call every Thursday from 3 to 4 P.M. If you can’t make it, then they have an option of uploading your photos on their website.
