When you hear the phrase “cutting edge modeling/entertainment agency” where would you think such an agency would be located? Would you believe it’s located in Austin Texas? The Brown Modeling agency is the culmination of founder Justin Brown‘s many years of working in some of the industries hubs.
Brown grew up in the tiny Northern California town of Susanville before heading south to L.A. where the modeling bug took hold of him. After working for several years in agencies in Los Angeles and New York, Brown made his way to Austin. A smart move no doubt as Texas’s capitol city was buzzing with a trendy, artsy, and laid back vibe as it’s size was also rapidly growing. Brown saw Austin as the opportunity to make his mark one the modeling/entertainment industry. He started with JB Models and Talent in 2008 which was licensed by Wilhelmina national agency in 2010. This later created a merger with Heyman Talent South.
Brown had the formula for a winning concept when he realized that he could “usher” his models from small market to big market gigs via his expertise and ties to the industry in Los Angeles and New York. But, interestingly enough, one of the issues for his agency is closer to home than New York City or Paris. Even withing Texas, tastes vary. While Austin clients embrace and edgy look complete with tattoos. piercings and such, Dallas jobs tend to call for a more conservative look. But it’s all good. When has the fashion industry not embraced several different styles or points of view? Whatever the trend, whatever the place, the Brown Agency continues to be on the cutting edge of making a name for itself and Texas as the industry’s next big star.
