Here are 14 Reasons Why Harvey James Management is Considered the First Choice for Aspiring Models and Promotional Talent:

We believe our consistent business growth in the highly competitive talent industry stems from our honesty and integrity with every one of our valued models and satisfied clients. 

Unfortunately, with the advent of the internet, a flood of unscrupulous agencies are popping up all over the world, resulting in many models feeling undervalued and unseen rather than feeling like top working models.

Understand not all agencies are the same in regard to you being treated with respect, dignity, and the support you need in reaching your goals and aspirations.

It’s essential that in a cutthroat industry, where many aspiring models are taken advantage of, that you do your research and only trust a reputable company with a team of professionals that goes the extra mile for their corporate clients and who acts as fierce protectors of their models.

    The HJM Development program is very well structured and tailored towards each individual. The coaches were extremely helpful and delivered the content in an engaging way but, also making it personable for everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Riverson R

    The Harvey James Management Development Program has been essential to finding an exciting and inclusive pathway into the industry. With experienced and passionate mentors, I would recommend Jade’s team to anyone wanting to maximise their potential.

    Nathan H

    I enrolled in the Harvey James Management model training in the hopes of gaining more insight into the modelling industry, and to help start my career. Harvey James Management went above and beyond to provide me with this, and through the incredible trainers I met in the course, I was able to gain important knowledge that I believe will strongly benefit not only my modelling career but my everyday life. All the workshops were presented in an exceptionally organised, and professional manner, with certain aspects tailored to meet each different model’s needs. I would happily recommend Harvey James Management to anyone wanting to get into the modelling industry, or to anyone just wanting to gain more confidence, in a warm and welcoming environment.

    Sophie J

    I really appreciated the one on one time that we got with the trainers to help understand what is needed for each of us individually. The trainers were also very kind and had a relaxed vibe, so it was easy to get along with them and nothing was awkward. I liked the folder with printed information that we could refer to later and I enjoyed working and talking to the other girls in the course.

    Harvey James offers young aspiring models an authentic pathway into the modelling industry, one, unlike any other company I have been involved with before. I completed the Development Program earlier this year, which provided me a snapshot of the modelling experience. I was privileged to work with a range of professionals across all areas of the industry. Kate Heussler and Peter Sereno in particular were of great help in preparing me for castings and advising my future pathway. In my first ever photoshoot, Ben Dilger was extremely encouraging and I was blown away by the photos produced. With the help of Harvey James, I have already been cast for 3 major campaigns, involving a range of work to expand my portfolio. Jade is so easy to talk to and makes the effort to connect with all her models, ensuring our feelings are always taken into consideration. She is incredibly devoted in her work, empathic, and a woman I continue to admire. Harvey James has and continues to, empower me as I commence my modelling journey. 

    Amanda G

    I absolutely loved the HJM development program. It gave me great insight into behind the scenes of the fashion industry and what being a model involves.

    Kalani V

    Both the courses were great! Jade was very welcoming when I first had my interview. She gave me heaps of knowledge into the model industry and I had great fun. Jade is a great role model and someone to look up to.
