The Wilhemina Austin agency, led by Justin Brown, launched in 2010 and quickly became known as an agency offering exceptional modeling talent. The company has earned the respect of many in the industry as their models have been hired by designers such as Louis Vuitton and in campaigns for major corporations like Toyota, Loreal and Dell. They also frequently grace the fashion week runways in major cities around the country.
In 2015 the agency expanded after acquiring Heyman Talent-South and became collectively known as The Brown Agency. This makes the company the only full-service modeling talent service in Austin and one of only a select few in the state of Texas. The agency continues to boast great successes with a company that offers to its broad range of talent immeasurable opportunities.
The Brown Agency offers work in film, television and commercials. They also seek talented voiceover artists as well as models for trade shows, runway and corporate events. Print models are also always in need. The agency continuously accepts submissions for representation but chooses only the best to train and provide to their numerous clients.
It is a great opportunity for local talent that may have once had to uproot their lives to relocate to one of the coasts in order to begin a lucrative career. Despite being located in Austin, the company is not limited to the range of work they have to offer those that are accepted to become Brown models and actors. National campaigns are hiring in the city and many projects are filmed or shot locally as well.
Austin Brown is a former Lucky Brand Jeans model and talent booker in Los Angeles that runs an agency that was initially started as an affiliate with Wilhelmina Models in New York. The connection with this globally-known agency and his own experience within the industry made it possible for him to settle into his new executive role. The recent expansion enables the company to combine two busy agencies into one full-service company that has more to offer to both their clients and their talent. Open calls are done weekly and additional submissions are always accepted online.
