Getting started in any industry can be a challenge, but many people looking to become a model face an uphill battle. That’s where Brown Modeling Agency comes in.
The agency, based in Austin, Texas, is a small and dedicated modeling firm that nurtures over 450 “talents” to top success in the modeling world. They’re working with the best: Brown Modeling Agency is the brainchild of Justin Brown, who got his start modeling jeans in the 1980s. After he modeled for several years, Justin then turned his attention to development and placement – training models for success and then placing them in good modeling jobs.
Justin Brown is good at what he does. There is just a staff of seven at the Brown Modeling Agency, but its models have appeared in ad spots for such prominent companies as Hilton Rewards, Ford Cars, and T-Mobile. As Justin Brown puts it, the Brown Modeling Agency might hire local, but it has a national outlook. The Brown Agency has successfully brought a big market vibe to the Texas fashion scene.
The Brown Modeling Agency was born after Wilhelmina Brown acquired Heyman Talent South, then re-launched as the Brown Agency. There are offices in Los Angeles and Dallas. Michael B. Bonnée, Heyman Talent South’s local lead, came with the agency when it was acquired. He is responsible for developing and managing the Brown Agency’s theatrical modeling division.

Just a glance at the Instagram page for the Brown Agency will show you how proud the modeling firm is of its talent, and how much it really looks out for their success. The agency will announce new bookings its models have landed. The Brown Agency models are also very supportive of one another, often commenting on each other’s posts after one of them has landed a major gig.
The Brown Agency regularly posts announcements about its open calls on its social media channels. Open calls take place every Wednesday between 3 and 4 pm.
In addition to print and video ads, Brown Agency models have walked in some of the world’s biggest fashion shows, including New York Fashion Week and Miami Swim Week.
