Brown Modeling Agency Puts Texas Talent on the Map
After moving to Austin in 2005, Justin Brown felt a connection with the city. After years of working through college as a model in California, he then focused on behind the scenes work in the area of developing new talent and job placement. Brown had studied the area of Business Management while in college and decided to put his education and experience together to form the Brown Modeling Agency. After falling in love with Austin and realizing that it was large enough to nurture a modeling and talent business, he merged his former Wilhelmena Brown Agency and Heyman Talent South to focus on both models and talent of all kinds.
Brown had been working in the model development area in Austin since 2005 and had started his own full service company called JB Models and Talent by 2008. His past experience in the industry gave him access to other agencies in Los Angeles and New York, but many of his clients did not want to move into a larger market. After Wilhelmina licensed his company in 2010, many more resources became available in the areas of print, runway and commercials. He acquired Heyman Talent South a few years later and formed the Brown Modeling Agency. He loves the local talent of Austin and values the funky, cool vibe that is a hallmark of Austin culture. He acqires models and talent from both Austin and Dallas and considers them to be the heart of his business and the main means of his agency’s success.
Setting out with the goal of making a full service leader in the industry, Brown has taken his Brown Modeling Agency to a level not previously seen in Texas before. His talent and models have been seen in many national campaigns including Toyota, L’Oreal, Louis Vuitton, Dell and many others. Fashion models from Brown Modeling Agency have been featured walking runways for Fashion Week in New York, Dallas and Austin as well as Miami Swim Week and countless others.
Brown set out to develop an agency that establishes talent and creative standards in his Austin agency which were once known only to the largest markets. His experience and dedication to surrounding himself with the best models and talent available has led Brown Modeling Agency to quickly become a top industry leader.
