Started by Chris Sayre in 2019 with the help of passionate models, SDS Modeling Company, LLC (SDS) is a West Virginia-based Modeling Agency and Publication Production Company. Our main focus is on the discovery, development, and networking of local models throughout WV, OH, KY, PA, and beyond. However SDS hosts and creates a series of print and digital content including magazines, calendars, events, photoshoots, vlogs, and podcasts.
SDS is passionate about creating collaborations and partnerships between business and local talent throughout West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, and Virginia. SDS provides a voice and representation for local talent and helps to provide a unique and safe experience for models. This is accomplished by training local models in working with photographers, building confidence, understanding the basics of posing, assisting in placement assistance.
SDS knows there is power in partnership! We are not a website only agency like a lot of other agencies (Sites). We work with local models, local businesses and local communities.
We work one on one with our clients to find Models that fit their project needs and budget. SDS cares about professionalism. We work with our models to ensure they understand the importance of behavior, appearance, and communication to keep a professional manner. It’s important to find top-tier models to work with, but also very difficult to find that professionalism that you may be looking for. SDS has an exclusive contract with every model that we partner with that stresses the importance of conducting themselves with dignity and respect.
As an agency, we aim to go above and beyond in working with their Models to ensure they have the skills necessary to excel at every project. We work with models one-on-one to improve their knowledge of posing, lighting, composition, and photography. Aside from basic skill building, we work with models in confidence building. Not only do we want our models to look and feel confident, but we also want them to represent brands and businesses confidently.
SDS cares about local opportunities. This is where we differentiate ourselves from other agencies. We work to build projects and communities at a local level. SDS has multiple exciting and new projects ranging from print and digital magazines, and vlogs, to events and beyond. Our models and businesses have access to get involved with new and exciting projects.
At the end of the day, we understand the importance of having the right partner. Whether you’re a business seeking talent or a model seeking an agency.
