Carolyn Nikkanen – Founder
Our Models and Actors get work in catalogues, television, feature films, television commercials, flyers, fashion shows, in-house promotions, brochures, various print campaigns, trade shows, industrial videos, music videos, theater and background work.
This is a competitive business, and although we cannot guarantee modeling or acting jobs, a high percentage of our models/actors are securing work.
A flexible schedule and good personality are essential and a great asset in this business. Training is recommended for those with no experience. Clients and photographers simply cannot afford to waste time waiting for “naturals” to walk in the door. Time is money and deadlines are tight. When it comes time to choose among five finalists with the right look training undoubtedly becomes a deciding factor.

I am VERY happy with your service and I truly appreciate everything you and your staff do for me. Thank you so very much!!
All of you are amazing and the Agency has helped me over the years to be more confident and patient.
My daughter has been with Carolyn’s for over 2 years. They are amazing and very organized. My daughter has been on many auditions and got back ground work twice. We just auditioned force commercial. Fingers crossed.
P.S. My daughter also sings and dances and we have used the photos done at Carolyn s and I can’t tell you how many compliments we get. They are all great to work with. Recommend this agency. Very known in the industry as a serious agency.
Always professional and courteous. I have known the agency for many years and would highly recommend them.
I don’t usually write reviews I thought I would as I wanted everyone to know how much they work on my behalf 7 days a week .The staff works really hard and I think this is one of the best agencies out there. They really honestly care about the talent they represent. Love working with them ! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! Such a pleasure working with such great people.
Carolyn’s has been wonderful! My twin boys have been part of Carolyn’s for almost a year now and I love it. It is so much fun to get out of my city and have the chance to get some beautiful pictures done of my kids. They have had 2 auditions. All of the staff have been great with answering any question I have had and it is always a pleasure to see them! Thank you so much for everything you do!!
I am very happy to have Carolyn’s Model and Talent agency as my representatives. Their staff is amazing and hard working. With them by my side I feel that my childhood dreams in becoming well known to the film industry is just a heartbeat a way…Thank you staff
“A wonderful TOM* season is behind us and I’d like to thank you and your models for a fantastic and professional season. Anthony is absolutely delightful, Darren, always the popular professional, and Joey is a really good guy. All of them were lovely and made my job so much easier.
“Carolyn’s Kids/Talent and Modelling agency have been representing my two daughters for over 2 years. Some months busy, some months slow. It’s a very inconsistent business. Regardless of that fact, they have help my children obtain dozens of jobs including: commercials, print ads, music videos, acting on movie/tv sets, a trip to Vancouver, South Carolina and so many other opportunities and auditions. Carolyn’s is connected with professionals, top producers, casting agents, publishers, musicians and others in various industries.
Carolyn’s provides a top notch team of trained professionals. Quality service and support is always available in whatever opportunity, audition or booking. They are well equipped to provide you with professional representation.
We have always been provided with up to date information and support from everyone at the agency.
Each audition or booking we treat like our last. In this business you can be hot then not. It’s not only about the agency but the casting directors and the professional experiences of the talent. The environment is forever changing.
I am often asked why I have my children in this industry and what they’ll gain. The answer is simple. The experience, skills, knowledge, friendships, and confidence attained from their involvement with Carolyn’s and the industry are things that I know they’ll carry with them for the rest of their life. They have gotten to experience things that I never would of given them and accomplish things I never thought were probable.
We are happy to be a part of this talent family.
Carolyn’s is so encouraging and supportive, it feels like one big family.
Thank You to the entire team, we are grateful.”
Since the foundation of our company in May of 2010 we have worked with Carolyn’s Model and Talent Agency on a regular basis on projects for commercial photography, new media commercials, editorial photo shoots and artistic creative pieces.
Without a doubt I would recommend Carolyn’s agency.”
