Trystyn had an amazing experience this evening and loved every minute. My younger daughter loved watching the show, and seeing her sister walk. Thank you for giving Trystyn that opportunity!!
Thank you so much for this experience!! 12 hour days are long, and the first 6 hours were spent just sitting in a holding area, but it was so worth it! i loved making new friends and meeting Dolly!!
-Ashlyn after Dolly Movie Booking
THANK YOU for getting me booked! I had a blast!
Good afternoon!! Addy had an amazing experience yesterday for the movie! She was exhausted as was I. It was a very long day, but so worth getting to see Dolly and being front row when she came out on stage!
Thanks so much for all your help in arranging models; it was a great shoot and all of them did fantastic work for us!
We will certainly reach out for future shoots.

|Guys I am In total shock! I can’t share it with you at the moment. This happened so fast! I have been persistent, everything I have done up until this moment has prepared me for this. I am so incredibly thankful, Rachele and Jaime I really wish I could squeeze you right now. All the countless miles, classes, photo shoots, runway shows, commercials, and being a extra in a movie and on a couple of tv shoes has lead me to this moment. I have so many people to thank! |
Thank you God, without you nothing would even be possible. Even when I felt discouraged you kept leading me❤️
My family, my schedule has made you all crazy. I know we’ve missed a lot of get togethers etc. and I have kept mom on the road and I am so thankful for you all. The love and support you have shown has been incredible. ❤️

I have learned so much and had so many amazing opportunities this past year being signed with Gage! Can’t wait to see what the future holds! #teamgage
Thank you for all of the fun the last 2 years!!
I loved being a part of the photoshoot last Sunday. Thank you SO very much. Everyone was so kind and professional and it was all so efficient!
I had so much fun last night at the fashion show! I wanted to send my thanks to you and the team who made it possible. That was my first fashion show. Everyone was so kind. And the feeling you get at the end of the runway when all the lights flash is unreal! I have never experienced that before!

I am so proud to be a Gage Model! I booked my first role in a movie one week after being signed on! If you would have told me I'd be a model/actor a year ago, I would have never believed it. But change is a wonderful thing and I am beyond happy I took this journey. Thank you
I wanted to gratefully thank you for giving me such good designers. I had an absolute ball and excited for the rest of the week! Thanks again for the opportunity!
Thank you for always being so nice to me and for letting me be part of Gage! It blessed my life! Always here for you. Blessings

I so miss working with Gage! I used to live in Atlanta and Rachel helped sign me and it was literally the best few years of my life! I moved to New York and had to sadly leave you guys but much love to the team!
They are very exciting and happy to teach everyone about acting and modeling. Thank you for making my Granddaughters day 😃
Parent of Noah- Zhwan Kurdi-
Thanks for 3 great years with your agency! My contract with Gage expired last year and despite choosing to move on, Jaime the owner continues to support me in my dreams and aspirations and at this moment I am on the verge of signing with a new agency thanks to her encouragement and help. All the best to Jaime and everyone else at Gage!
Thankful for the opportunity to sign with a GREAT local company that offers such exciting benefits. The leadership of the Acting Classes conducted by the accredited staff is second to none. You WILL learn the business. As well as the Agents that are continuously booking talent for roles around the country. The benefits the children receive put them in a different light from all the rest. Building self confidence today is extremely important for US ALL...
WE ARE BLESSED. - Gerald Edgell
My daughter loves everyone at gage and has learned so much!
I wish I could give 6 stars! If your serious about your talent, plus have the drive, passion and dedication that it takes...run don't walk and get on board with the absolute best talent agency in the southeastern United States.

Gage has already given me so many opportunities! They are very helpful and caring about their talent! I have referred so many friends to GĀGE and will continue to do so!💙

Super helpful and very responsive to messages. They have a lot of opportunities to gain experience. My daughter absolutely loves doing all the fashion shows. She has made a lot of valuable connections. Her confidence has grown tremendously.
I love Gage! I love it so much that I have referred 3 people who are now working models!! I have been booked for print, runway, commercials and a movie in such a short time. They work extremely hard, and they give you the tools to succeed! Best decision I have ever made. They are not just my agency, they are my family 💕
The folks at Gage are absolutely amazing! They are very professional and also well established! Whether you are new to the industry, or seasoned professional talent, they definitely have the connections and resources to get you booked! Highly Recommend! A+
Gage Talent is a phenomenal agency and a joy to work with. They work hard and are dedicated to making sure that their talent are successful too.

I am booked for multiple days on Stranger Things the week after Thanksgiving!!! Yay! I'm so excited!!! Thank you so much!!
"Rachele, Thank you for keeping me busy!"
"Everything went wonderful today!!!!! By far the best photo shoot. Tell them all they're incredible. Thank you for this opportunity again."
"Auditions went really well - you rep some really great people. We’ll have selects for you by tomorrow!"
-Tiffany from Sequitur TV
"Rachele!!!!!! It's a beautiful commercial and I am SO PROUD to be a part of it. Thank you thank you thank you."
Good evening, I just wanted to let you know that I am very thankful for your efforts to ensure quality type audition's. As you are aware that I am still learning more and more each role I'm cast in, each audition and runway event. Learning the process and procedures is in itself quite the experience. 16 months ago I came to GAGE and invested in the possibility of learning about the business in acting and modeling. Completely different from anything else I have done. I've seen more than I imagined possible in the short amount of time about this business. So, I'm just trying to say to you and GAGE, thank you very much for believing in me and allowing me to learn more. Experience is the best teacher. Of course Ms. Joy is too! Tough as nails. Thank you again!
Thanks for the love and support Gage Talent! You Guys Rock!!!!!
Rachele, So the other night I’m on set working on Still the King. I am playing the bouncer at a bar that the girls are trying to get into. So during rehearsal one of the girls stand in's asks if I'm from Knoxville, because I look familiar. I explain that I'm from Nashville, but have done a few shows in Knoxville. She then says you're with Gage aren't you, so am I! So short story long, Gage people are everywhere! Also asked me about TWD, which I hadn't told anyone about, because you get sworn to secrecy. While I was at STK I got a call to come to Atlanta the next morning and Photo Double for the villain on MacGyver. That was awesome!
Hey Rachele! I just realized I never said thank you for all you did with the last simplicity job. Thank you!
Hey Rachele!!! Fun and educational shoot!! Thanks a bunch!!!! Keep them coming, we appreciate you!! All the models/talent today were so nice and professional, it's always nice meeting new people!!!
"Jaime, Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity. I met so many wonderful people including you. You did such a wonderful job and you were extremely professional. That's hard to find in this industry. Please keep me in mind for anything else in the future. I wish you all the best. Thank you again."
-Stephen Curd of GaricStephens label
"Thank you Jaime Hatcher Hemsley and the whole Gage team for encouraging us, coaching Kaelyn and taking us to NYC! This is where it all started and we are very thankful for all the love and support from Gage and our fellow Gagers!"
-Tina R. mom of Kaelyn, recently signed onto Nickelodeon
"HUGE Thank you to the BEST agency ever, Gage Models and Talent for making my dreams come true when signing me a year ago! And thank you Sarah Merrell for referring me! It is so super crazy that I have come so far in a year! From television shows, to commercials, print ads, and Fashion Weeks on the runway, not to mention the training! If you want the best folks, this is where you go! I can't wait for the many more years to come! I love you all! #teamgage "
"I am in love with Gage. I feel they prepared me exceptionally well to get started in this industry, and the training courses were amazing. I learned so much and my instructor was amazing. Even afterward, she still stays in contact with the models she has taught and is more than a teacher, but a friend. I sped through my training courses and signed my 3 year contract not too long after. Within 2 weeks, I was booked on a paid modeling gig. Rachele and Jaime find all kinds of opportunities for their talent, and not only support you on a professional level, but a personal one as well. Every week, we also have countless opportunities to submit ourselves for other castings on the website. I couldn't be happier with my choice to come here, and it has positively impacted my life, self-confidence, and social networking skills. Not only that, but on my very first shoot, I met my favorite photographer I have ever worked with! He was amazing. They work with the best photographers and hair and makeup artists! I highly suggest Gage!"
"Gage Models and Talent has done wonderful things for my modeling and acting endeavors. The staff is great to work with, they work very hard for their talent. I'm very grateful to them and highly recommend Gage!"
"Gage supplies my events with models and they are always top notch! I tell them what I'm looking for and WOW, they over deliver each and every time. I've made friends with many of these models over the years and several of them have moved on to bigger markets with bright futures in the industry."
"I love Gage Talent!!! Being from Knoxville Tennessee and living and working in Hollywood, Gage Talent provides people the opportunity to be seen in larger markets as well as booking their talent across the country and locally. Jaime and her staff are my favs! They are the best for anyone looking to work or get into the entertainment industry."
"I just wanted to send you a quick email expressing how happy I am to be apart of Gage. I saw my episode of Snapped last night and I just had to email you and say Thanks to you and everyone else at Gage. I can't wait to see what the future holds!"
"I had a great time today! My first photoshoot! It was exhilarating and tiring! Thanks so much to the people Gage Models & Talent Agency for being so amazing!"

It was fun getting to see Colin and meeting so many new people! Everyone was so nice and therapeutic on set! Thank you Rachele Bailey, Jaime Hatcher Hemsley, and Brent Hemsley for this lovely opportunity! "
