What We Offer
We host a FMI Model Expo to introduce you to the right agencies.
At FMI, our goal is to introduce and manage undiscovered talent to the world’s top modeling agencies. We know you can travel to different markets such as New York, Miami and Los Angeles to knock-on-doors, but our FMI Model Expo offers a more streamlined and accessible opportunity. Some management companies do hold “open calls”, others do not. Quite often, you will meet assistants or interns and may not even be seeing the right people. This is a very expensive and financially risky way to find out if you have what it takes to make it in the industry.
We put you in the same room with top agencies at one event.
The potential models who attend our Live Model Expo are people that we have personally scouted around the world. They will be seen in person by agents from the best agencies. This approach elevates each person’s exposure and potential to be selected and signed by a modeling agency.
The Expo will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the modeling industry.
The FMI Model Expo is not a pageant nor a competition. In this one day educational event, you will learn about the industry and have the opportunity to walk the runway in front of the best agents. We will prepare you by providing time for you to practice on the runway with coaches who are industry veterans.
What a callback will mean for you.
After the runway review, each agent will provide the FMI Management team with a list of callbacks. If you receive a callback, you will sit with the agent or agents and discuss your possible opportunities. There is not a set number of callbacks. Agents look for all different types of talent. You might have interest from many agents, just one, or none at all. We do not make promises that they will be interested in representing you. In fact, some of you will not get callbacks. If your goal is to be a model, The FMI Expo, is by far the simplest time saving and most cost effective way to start your career. We do not guarantee a signed contract, but we strive to provide the best counsel and management for you to be discovered in the most straightforward personalized format.
We are your mother agent.
