OLM THE AGENCY™ PROVIDES REPRESENTATION & MANAGEMENT FOR MODELS

OLM THE AGENCY™ , established in 1985, is located in 7 cities and is the oldest black-owned modeling agency in the United States.


Most of our models have afull-time job; however, they do modeling bookings on-the-side for the additional annual income it brings. Even though we handle all modeling assignments, the majority of the bookings are for national print ad campaigns which pay between $5,000 to $50,000 for a one-day booking.


Fashion week, runway shows, music videos, showroom are all good bookings. At the end of the day, the STRONG money is in the pay from print ads.
