The Brown Agency is the premier modeling agency for fashion and print models in Austin, Texas. Justin Brown, the founder of the agency, began his career as a “fit” model to help put him through college. As a model he could bring in $100 per hour modeling as opposed to the $6 per hour he could make working at the local golf course. What began as a means to an end became a passion for Justin Brown and a few years later, The Brown Modeling Agency was born?
While most models were interested in making the shoot work, Brown was more interested in what was going on behind the cameras. As a Business Management major, he could see the potential in the modeling market. After successfully completing modeling jobs for different agencies across Southern California, Justin Brown landed a job in development and placement for a local firm. This basically entailed training other models to “act like pros,” and Mr. Brown quickly developed an expertise in this area.
After spending some time perfecting his craft in California, Justin Brown moved to Austin and initially began a development business to train models in the area. He immediately connected with the city and saw the need for an agency that could provide models for the burgeoning fashion and print market there. It was clear from the beginning that Austin had its own culture and the challenge would be taking that local flair and making it viable for national needs. That is when The Brown Modeling Agency was born. Wilhelmina Austin acquired Heyman Talent-South in 2015 and renamed the new, full-service agency, The Brown Modeling Agency. Overnight it became the largest modeling agency in Austin and the only full-service agency there. Justin Brown’s dream of having the resources to go national was now a reality and the company was taking off.
The Brown Modeling Agency is now the largest in Central Texas and one of the largest in the state. They have a lot of talent reaching into every aspect of modeling and their agency has contacts to brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, L’Oreal, and the list of well-known companies across America could go on and on. While the company is only in its second year of existence, it has the talent, connections, and leadership to make it one of the best modeling agencies in the nation.
