Local modeling agency celebrates unique talent

HOUSTON – A Houston-based model agency is making a global impact thanks to its mission to celebrate and represent all ethnic groups, skin types, skin tones, and abilities.

It’s called Skin I’m In Model & Talent Agency, co-founded by Ferrell Phelps and Sonyia Baring Graham, who explained why their company is more than just an agency, but a movement.

Their talent is already landing campaigns from big brands, such as Adidas, Coke Cola, Amazon, Google, and Delta Airlines.

And some of their Houston models are already breaking barriers, such as Cory Perkins, the first adaptive amputee to be featured in an Academy Sports + Outdoor advertising campaign, and Markyah Cooper, a model with albinism who has been featured on two Fenty Beauty campaigns.
