At JMI our emphasis is on quality, so we are selective in choosing who we represent.
Founded in September 2003, the vision of JMI was years in the making. Jaffa R. Odum, founder and president, decided to combine his twenty plus years experience in the modeling and fashion industry with his strong track record of developing and training models. JMI is a young agency on the rise and has established professional business relationships with other agencies, clients national and international.
The key to becoming a professional model is understanding the industry. JMI's focus is on the model as a person, helping them develop the skills and self-confidence required of any professional model. If you are paid to be a model you are expected to act professionally. Modeling is one of the most competitive industries in the world. It’s a business and should be taken seriously.
We don’t only look for models with a look, but he or she must be willing to work hard and have the commitment, determination, confidence, dedication and personality to get the job done. These qualities are essential.
The relationship between JMI and the models must be a partnership bringing about success personally and professionally while maximizing time.
JMI's philosophy combines the personal touch with professionalism for both models and our valued clients. At JMI there is a mutual trust between the models and staff. JMI strives to cultivate a family atmosphere and we do not allow our models to compete against each other.
JMI’s commitment is to provide all of our models and clients with outstanding service.
