AMERICUS, GA (WTVM) - If you ever thought about being a model, you will have an opportunity on March 22 to make that a dream a reality.
The Exotica Modeling Agency will conduct a model search for perspective models at the Hampton Inn in Americus, Ga. from 10 a.m. to noon. Exotica is owned by Americus native Angela Jackson Engram, who realized a dream a few years ago when she created the agency.
According to Engram, Exotica's philosophy is to provide high quality representation for its models and superior customer service to their clients.
"We have signed a few models already, and we want to continue adding to our roster," said Engram, who competed in a few pageants growing up and has always been fascinated with the modeling business. "People usually only think of runway models when they think of modeling, but models are needed in many other areas, such as print ads, commercials and much more. Exotica's goal is to provide models in these niche markets and maximize other opportunities for our models."
Exotica is based in Atlanta, but Engram says that there is talent throughout Georgia, and it was important to have a model search in her native Southwest Georgia.
"Americus is my hometown so I am excited to be able to come back home and see all the talented individuals not only in Sumter County but all of Southwest Georgia," said Engram, who visits her mother and other family members frequently throughout the year. "Exotica is growing very fast, and we want to be able to attract talent from all over the state, and this area definitely is a good place to visit. We look forward to having a large crowd and it doesn't matter what your race, age or nationality. If you have a passion for modeling, we want to see you there!"
Females are asked to wear fitted jeans, a solid colored top and heels. Hair should be pulled away from face, and no makeup or jewelry. Males are asked to wear jeans and a solid colored top and children just need to dress comfortable. There is no fee for this event.
