Only a handful of agency owners actually sit on the booking board daily, plugging away in the trenches for their models. John Smith does this and this is an important factor. Even fewer agencies have relationships that go back a decade with some of the most influential power players in the industry and again Smith has this in spades. Add to that the ruthless drive and ambition of a booking table packed with killer agents like Eduardo Domingo and what you have is a shop pulsing with raw ambition. Decisions have been made by this agency over the past several years that have posted spectacular results. From runway to editorials to campaigns, the new generation of modeling’s most valuable players Particia Amos, Idalia Clawson, Keely Dye, came flooding out of DNA.
