MORE Models and Talent
It all began with a simple idea. Recognizing the need for model and talent representation in Hawaii that met local, national and international standards, husband-and-wife team Ruz and Sri Rusden - both national and international models and photographers - opened MORE Models & Talent in June of 1997.
Since then, MORE Models & Talent has made a name for itself as one of Hawaii's top agencies, representing over 750 individuals, ranging from adorable children to attractive older adults, talented character actors to stunning runway models, many of whom have appeared in national and international publications from the most prestigious fashion glossies to family, travel and fitness magazines.
n 2005, Ruz and Sri transferred ownership of MORE Models & Talent to Dave Palomares and Thom Fanning, successful entrepreneurs whose winning track records in advertising and business development foretell many good things to come.
The founders, owners and staff share a broad-based business background and industry experience that includes photography and modeling to advertising and magazine editing. MORE Models & Talent features the best in local fashion, commercial, runway, Hawaiiana and specialty talent.
Inside, you'll find a sampling of the models and talent we represent as well as spotlights on a selection of the production talent within our network. We hope this site will entice you to visit our beautiful state if you're abroad, and encourage you to take advantage of the services we have to offer if (and when) you're local.
