Ashley Lacamp gets featured on Harper's Bazaar online



Ashley is causing a stir up in New York.

Harper's Bazzar's online team named Ashley a face to watch in a recent round up.

"Ashley LaCamp is a Texas-bred equestrian (top, right); Fanny Francois, a Belgian redhead with a face worthy of a Douglas Sirk close-up (top, left). Throw in Brit teenager Tasha Franken (whose look is a mashup of Ann Kenny and Alexandra Richards. Bottom, right) and, and you’ve got three promising new faces heading into New York Fashion Week. Model watchers should also be sure to watch out for the return of Chavelli Inghels, the platinum blonde who was exclusive to Calvin Klein last season (bottom, left)."

Employee of the month: Page Parkes agent Brooke Deklavs



We're excited to kick off a new behind-the-scenes series where we will spotlight a Page Parkes employee each month. Welcome Brooke Deklavs, our newest agent in our Houston office!

TITLE:
Talent Agent

ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES:
I work with the talent division- Commercial, TV, and Film and the Kids Division. I work on castings all across the US- from LA, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, New Orleans, New York, etc. I'm responsible for submitting on castings, making sure the talent arrive prepared, and always reaching out to new clients. Basically, I am the liaison between the casting director and the talent- protecting the talent as well as accommodating the casting director.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT PAGE PARKES:
As an agent here at Page Parkes - 6 months. I worked as a model with Page Parkes for 8 years and then moved to LA and signed with Osbrink for modeling. I loved my experience on the talent side in LA, but I had always had an interest in being an agent. After a few years of modeling and acting there, I was given the opportunity to work at The Osbrink Agency on the other side of the business and loved it. My husband's job brought us back to Texas and brought me home to Page Parkes.

YOU HAVE YOUR RADAR ON?My favorite are the ones that want to be successful and are willing to make the sacrifices and commitment it takes to be successful- like those that respond quickly, continue training, say "yes" to castings, and are available to travel even on short notice.

FAVE AGENCY MOMENT:
When I first started, the agency staff thought I was too soft spoken, so they made me get on the intercom and start paging people. I couldn't stop laughing, and I still laugh every time I think about it.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR:
First, I always look at someone's resume and their training. Second, someone who walks into the audition with confidence, has a great personality, and nails their audition. I also look for talent who have a schedule that can accommodate last minute and/or out of town castings. People who are eager to take advice and listen are also top on the list.

SUCCESS STORY:Any booking is so much fun to work on- being able to call the talent and let them know their hard work paid off and they booked the job is a great feeling. One of my favorite success stories is of Gavin Reyna. He was brand new to the agency, and we submitted him for a role as Zac Efron's nephew in a feature film. After sending in a tape to casting and flying to New Orleans for the callback, he booked the job! It was his first on camera booking, and he was so excited. It's one of my favorite stories because it shows how hard work and training really pay off.
