Justin Brown modeled his way through college to a business administration degree. He was fascinated not just by what happened on the talent side of the camera, but by the business behind the camera as well. And he knew that modeling was an excellent choice for many people both as a stepping stone to a related career or to earn money to study and find another one.
So when he graduated from school, he stayed in the fashion world. Very soon, he moved to Austin TX, a city where he quickly felt at home. Justin Brown stayed in contact with his networks across New York City and Los Angeles, and soon built upon those connections when he became the President of his very own agency, called Wilhelmina Brown, in 2010.
Over five years, the Wilhelmina Brown Agency grew into one of the most respected modeling agencies in Texas. The other major Austin agency, Heyman Talent-South, specialized in finding local acting talent. When Wilhelmina Brown acquired Heyman Talent-South, the two agencies were renamed and branded as the Brown Agency.
The combined talents transformed the Brown Agency into Austin’s only full-service modeling agency. The full service agency means that the talent can specialize in photography, acting, fashion and print modeling. Since the Brown Agency started in 2015, it has attracted the attention of major brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, and Loreal. On the fashion side, Brown Agency models have been seen walking the runway for local and national Fashion Walks in Austin, Dallas, New York City and Miami.
While Austin’s distinctive look and flair carries through with many of the acting talents, Justin Brown’s experience and connections on both coasts allows those talents who hunger for more to walk into coastal agencies with bigger names and bigger budgets. However, many other want to stay local and remain in their beloved Texan towns, so Justin Brown also recruits modeling and acting talent for local and smaller companies around the Austin area.
In a report by Market Wired, the Brown Agency prides itself on its ability to deliver dependable, high quality modeling work for its clients, and a stable, well-paying and viable talent agency for the models that walk in the door. They hold frequent open casting calls for potential new talent in the Austin area, and many of the models who wish to go on to major cities like Los Angeles and New York will go there fully prepped and ready for success.
As a former model himself, Justin Brown knows the challenges that come with a successful modeling career. The Brown Agency does all of that for their models because they know that they are only as good as the talent which walks into the door.
