Fashion Models' Agents

Employment Prospects


Modeling agencies employ agents and scouts as well as stylists and photographers. Agencies are located throughout the United States and internationally, though there are established major and minor markets for work. In the United States, the top market is located in New York City, undeniably the fashion capital of the country. Flagship offices of major modeling agencies are located there, such as Ford, Elite, IMG, and Wilhelmina, not to mention top-notch photographers, designers, and advertising agencies. While New York City may offer the best job market and most lucrative bookings, competition for work is intense. Still, many models flock to the city in hopes of making it big. Numerous agents also make their way to the city, hoping to represent those promising new talents.
