Arizona Foothills Magazine met up with two of the best modeling agencies in Phoenix, The Agency Arizona and Ford/Robert Black Agency, to discuss what they’re excited about in the upcoming months!
The Agency Arizona
Owner and former model for the company herself, Terri Camberlango has brought The Agency Arizona to new heights in the Phoenix area. A boutique modeling agency with headquarters in Scottsdale Fashion Square, Camberlango and The Agency Arizona are excited for the summer because it’s a time when the models are able to travel. “The market slows in Arizona during summer, but it’s a great opportunity to have our models travel. We currently have a few in New York, London, and even a girl in Tokyo.” The quieter summer also gives The Agency Arizona time to prepare for Fall here in Phoenix, their busiest time of year. Currently, top models that Camberlango is excited to represent include Natalie Westling, an 18-year-old Arizona native who booked the latest Marc Jacobs editorial campaign, and walked the Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2015 runway. As for the guys, Daniel Markus, a model who’s been signed for less than a year, has “gotten some great traction for both international placement and local clients here,” Camberlango says. The Agency Arizona has garnered many accolades, with both talent and clientele any company would be proud to have.

Ford/Robert Black Agency
The Ford/Robert Black Agency has done ground-breaking things for Phoenix’s modeling industry in the 27 years it’s existed. Owner and Director Sheree Hartwell is a former model for the agency, having begun representation at just 14 years old and buying the company in 2005. AZ Foothills spoke with Hartwell about what the Scottsdale-based agency is looking forward to in the coming months, which slow down significantly due to the weather and lack of clients. “We are…continuing to scout some of the freshest talent around and developing them into working models,” Hartwell says, which they achieve by hosting open calls and local model searches. Hartwell continues that currently the agency has talent in “…Greece, Sydney, Hong Kong, Beijing, Paris…” with the list going on to nearly every major city in the world. The agency is also excited about two up-and-comers they represent; Roxanne Sanderson and Tyler McFerson. At 18 years old, Sanderson was just signed for a worldwide contract with NEXT Models, and has been preparing for New York Fashion Week. McFerson was handpicked by Hartwell a year ago for his “super current look;” one that will “lend him to becoming a favorite of the men’s designers, both for runway shows and editorial campaigns.” The Ford/Robert Black Agency continues to represent Phoenix with a never-ending array of unique looks, never failing to be on the forefront of trends.
