 OLM THE AGENCY™ is a full-service modeling firm which represents and manages models for trade shows, conventions and showroom, special events, corporate events, fashion shows, runway shows, music videos, editorial work and promotions. However, we specialize in getting our models bookings for national print advertisements.  

OLM THE AGENCY™ is an independently owned modeling firm which specializes in representing models of “color”. “We Specialize in Getting Our Models Print Ads”.  If you are a model seeking bookings & haven’t really been making too much money in this business or if you would like to do print work but need guidance, feel free to contact me & I will be open to guide you in the right direction. Even if you elect not to work with On-Location Models, I will still be willing to give you sound advice and a few leads on getting some PRINT ADS.  

We were in the World Trade Center. Then we relocated to Houston, TX. Business is also handled out of Atlanta-GA, Charlotte-NC, Chicago-IL and Hawaii. OLM THE AGENCY™ specializes in representing “women-of-color”. We are increasing our diversity of the types of models we represent. Nevertheless, most of our modes are female & “chocolate”.

Perhaps you have been doing a lot of photo sessions, music videos, fashions shows, runway shows, hair shows and flyers for nightclubs; promotional modeling and other modeling assignments. If so, most of the pay has not touched $1,000 per modeling assignment.

We at  OLM THE AGENCY™ want  to give you a little food for thought. Most major PRINT ADS pay a ‘MINIMUM’ of $1,500 per half-day. This means that you work for 3-5 hours for that kind of money.  Many PRINT ADVERTISEMENTS pay $5,000 - $50,000 per booking for national campaign ads or an easy $4,000 - $8,000 for being on a hair-care box. Again, these figures are for a one-day booking! You can’t earn that doing promotional modeling even at the rate of $50 per hour for 8 hours which totals up to paying $400 for that day!  

Most of our models have a 9-5-day job. Thereafter, they attend a class at college. Many of them are also single parents. Most of them do not have interest in modeling! However, doing a few modeling bookings “on-the-side” for extra income (as it comes) does interest them.

Modeling is on the back burner in their life.  Again, extra money is their common purpose for modeling. So, when Christmas comes around, all gifts are bought from the modeling money and not the 9-5 pay check. When vacation time comes, the vacation is paid for from the income from modeling … not the 9-5 income.  


ON-LOCATION MODELS™ aka OLM THE AGENCY™ is recognized as being the oldest Black-owned modeling agency in the United States as awarded by the Chamber Of Commerce.
