The Eye Model Placement is a unique and personal model scouting and management company. We pride ourselves on having ‘The Eye’ to find potential new modelling talent, by scouting for fresh faces all over the country, developing their look, introducing them to different model agencies and eventually placing them with the appropriate one in London and worldwide. We work very closely with both the model and their agency to plan careers with longevity in mind. We focus on building long term, personal relationships with all our models, taking into account each model’s different circumstances.
Our models' happiness and welfare is our main priority. We feel a duty of care to everyone we look after and guide them closely acting as personal mentors to give help and support with anything they may need. Although our models will have the support of the agency they are placed with, we are always on hand to help. From explaining the basics of the modelling industry, to teaching models how to pose and walk, to chaperoning, motivating or helping to resolve any problems, issues or questions that a model may have, including the very important subject of finances.
We feel that we offer our models the highest quality and most personal career management, and best of all – it does not cost our models anything. The agencies we work with pay us a separate commission for the work that we do. Our aim is to ensure that all our models feel happy, secure and well looked after.We have discovered and look after lot of very successful models, however from supermodels to brand new discoveries, everyone is just as important to us.
Our models have modelled for brands and magazines across the world including; Burberry, Versace, D&G, ASOS, The Kooples, Espirit, Topman, GQ, Glamour, Italian Vogue, Teen Vogue, I-D, Wonderland. If you would like to join them and are interested in becoming a model please send us your details including your full name, phone number, age, height and a clear headshot, mid length and full length photograph of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not pay for professional photos. We can tell everything that we need to know from a clear snapshot taken against a white wall.

With his decades long supermodel obsession it was inevitable that Bayo would one day end up in this line of work. Starting out street casting for the likes of Dove – Real Women campaign and Nokia, he then moved on to working as a booker at a London model agency, before finally setting up his own casting agency, The Eye. He now spends most of his time street casting cool kids, scouting for fresh new faces and booking supermodels for editorials. His obsession is finally satisfied!
