Model Exchange International
To Whom It May Concern:
Can you tell me if you have ever heard anything on Model
Exchange International out of Madison, WI? Wondering
if this is a respected model agency or not.
Nobody has contacted Modeling Scams regarding Model
Exchange International with complaints or
It is not a "respected" model agency on the
level of Ford, Wilhelmina, etc.
It does not appear to have a website at modelexchange.com,
but there is another site on pinupglamour.com based in
Although it calls itself a "full service modeling
agency," and the full name includes "International," there
is no sign on that website it has offices outside of

When you see "international," you might expect
to find they have offices in different countries.
There are only 8 models profiled. All women. It appears

The owner or contact person of "Model Exchange
International" appears to be a photographer.
In fact, the exact same address is given for both the "modeling
agency" and the photographer.

If you decide to investigate further, the questions
to ask would be:
1. How long have you been around?
2. How many countries do you work in? ("International")
3. How many work on staff?

I'd recommend contacting them or any other modeling
agency which has been around for several years, has offices
in different cities, and more than a few on staff.
