We are using only new models after 2004 October.
 
How long have you been dealing with American part-time model?
Location First Modeling Agency is the
BIGGEST & LONGEST serving modeling agency in Okinawa
& we have been providing modeling jobs for americans since 1977.
We have a reputation of paying well and on-time after your
modeling job has been complete. (unlike other modeling agency which has financial difficulty & unable to pay the models even after the job has been completed)
Because we are the biggest modeling agency, we receive most jobs that comes
from mainland Japan, and therefore increases your chance of getting a job as a model.
