Whether you want to become America’s next Top Model, or just boost your confidence and make a part-time pay in the process, MTM Cincinnati is the place to go.


Owned by Deborah Cameron and operated by Lori Colwell, MTM (Model Talent Management) is a full service boutique talent agency, founded in 2005 to represent men, women, and children of all ages, sizes, and ethnicities.



Also managed by Cameron and Colwell is John Casablancas Modeling and Career Centers, which trains individuals for the talent work that MTM books. “This is our development division for getting local talent working and making sure they are prepared,” says Cameron. “John Casablancas has been around for over 40 years and discovered seven of the top ten supermodels in the industry. We help find the model or actor in you!”


The career center not only trains future models, but it also boosts confidence and presentation skills for clients in a variety of fields. “We help people find their potential in all careers,” says Cameron. “We’ve helped local lawyers polish their courtroom presentations, doctors improve interaction with patients, moms polish their professionalism to re-enter the workforce, and also young children who would not raise their hand in school – even when they knew the answer – because of a lack of confidence.”


While John Casablancas Modeling and Career Centers helps a range of clients achieve various goals, if those aspirations include modeling or acting, MTM has impressive connections to make that happen. “We just signed another of our models to a national contract. This will be another huge signing like one of our other models, Amy Hixson, who is a supermodel now signed with agencies across the world and is the star of a new Covergirl ad campaign,” says Cameron. “Our acting division is also strong. We just booked commercials for JTM, Parkers Restaurant and First Financial Bank.”

Cameron says they are currently looking to add to their lifestyle division, which is age 30-60 both male and female. “Plus,” she adds, “we are looking for Hispanic models and actors all ages to fill our client requests.”


The company is also committed to community service. “I always cared about causes, but never thought that I could make a difference. Lori lost her aunt a year ago to Pancreatic Cancer and she is now the media representative for Cincinnati PANCAN,” Cameron says. “We are also a sponsor for the Aubrey Rose Foundation and American Girl Fashion Show, and have supported many causes through Cincy Chic such as Susan G. Komen. It brings our staff, talent and clients together, and it’s all for truly great causes.”


MTM recently remodeled their offices and training studios, and are having an open house event Oct. 4 from 5-8pm to celebrate. They welcome you to enjoy a night of shopping, pampering and checking out all that MTM Cincinnati has to offer. Learn more and RSVP here:


“We have been working the Cincinnati market for 8 years now, and have just renovated and are looking at this as a sort of reopening or reintroducing us to Cincinnati,” explains Cameron. “We wanted to have an event to thank all of our clients, and introduce us to new ones. We expect to have an evening of lots of fun and fashion, great food and drinks!”
