Overview of our modeling agency
AMS Model's founder, Ann Marie Stonecypher-Bick was an award winning business woman, taking over 35 years of professional modeling and business experience in the Syracuse NY, Rochester NY, Buffalo NY and Albany NY areas, and using it to form one of Central New York's Largest and most comprehensive Talent Management, Product Promotions, and Fashion Event Coordinating group.
AMS is known for having an ever expanding base of the most diverse talent in the areas that it covers (Syracuse, Rochester, Albany and Buffalo).
Ann Marie started AMS Models in 1999 because she wanted there to be a place where models could go for honest representation. Since Ann Marie's passing in 2018, we continue to maintain the same promise of professionalism. No pressure to buy fancy portfolios and classes- we are NOT a school. We are a place to get good advice and get booked as a model or actor. This market books all types of talent- we represent all of them, not just the tall and thin. We are one stop shopping for our clients.
Ann Marie combined decades of experience as a model with her experience as an award winning business woman to create a talent company with integrity. During business hours there is always someone here to (professionally and politely)answer phone calls. When a client needs to find talent we are here. Talent of all ages, ethnicities and sizes who perfectly fit the demographic of the Upstate market. We don't pretend to be something we aren't. AMS Models & Talent is not an extension of anyone's ego. It is a place to find and book good talent. Period.
We only take about 20% of those who apply to AMS Models. We want people who are serious about modeling because they are representing AMS Models. We only accept good quality jobs from reputable companies. Our models get paid for commercial bookings. It's what we do!
