Although Austin is not a major hub for modeling it has grown over the years and appears to be drawing more attention from companies wanting models from the Austin area. My daughter has been represented by this company for several years now and has been sent on many auditions. My son is also represented by them and has been too shy during auditions so it must not be his thing. In the beginning there were not as many auditions to go on or they were too last minute that we just could not make it. Over the years, the phone calls have picked up. This company only gets paid if you get the job. You do not pay them to go out on auditions or to represent you. You should never pay any company to just send you on auditions! My husband even got a job in a commercial when he was noticed at an audition for my daughter!
