Halo intends to be a light in our industry and we aim to be transparent in all of our business practices. Our goal is to provide an extra outlet of income for the models and actors on contract with the agency.
We are a full service agency which means we represent kids, teens and adults in the areas of fashion print, commercial print, mature and lifestyle print, high fashion runway, children’s runway, TV commercials, film, industrial & corporate videos and promotional/trade show. We represent models, spokesmodels and actors ages 5 to 100.
In September 2002, we opened Halo in Atlanta, Georgia. While working in Atlanta, we were hearing the buzz about the revised Entertainment Investment Act. There were a ton of model and talent agencies in Atlanta but there were none in Savannah. In 2007, we opened a second office on Bull Street in downtown Savannah. Between the tax incentives and the beauty of our city, we’ve had many movie productions set up camp in our town but we’ve also had a ton of national print campaigns come to Savannah, too. From national campaigns to local work, we’ve been booking models and actors in Savannah for more than 12 years.
The Halo Agency is a full service model and talent agency connecting local models and actors to clients looking for the right face for their productions. Because Savannah is a destination location, we “piggy back” off of many national clients who come to Savannah to shoot their productions. We also book jobs with our local and regional clients. There are many opportunities for Savannah models and actors to work locally, regionally or even nationally. FYI, you must be signed with our agency to be privy to these opportunities. In order to be considered for the agency, you’ll need to attend an open call session. Sessions are held weekly for anyone interested in auditioning for Halo.

SOME OF THE NATIONAL BRANDS WE'VE BOOKED
STEPHANIE DUKE ANDREWS
Stephanie Duke Andrews is the Founder and Director of Halo Models & Talent Group. She is a former New York model and actress and was represented by Zoli, where she worked for clients such as Seventeen Magazine, Jockey Underwear and Jones New York. Stephanie began working in the industry when she was only 14 years old, then she moved to NYC when she was 16. Now, she is celebrating her 30th year in the fashion and entertainment business.
Prior to opening Halo in 2002, Stephanie was a fashion, print and TV agent and scout throughout the Southeast for Madison Agency. She also scouted for fashion agency Eye for Eye Milan, Italy. More recently, Stephanie is the producer of the Connect NYC, a low-cost, private audition experience, held in New York City three times a year. After seeing that the Savannah market is saturated with the “traveling” and “fly by night” model and talent searches with huge price tags, Stephanie used her NY agency contacts to create the Connect NYC event. The Connect NYC program is the Masters Degree or Graduate Program and is the only class at Halo that Stephanie teaches and it is by invitation only. To see the show event she created, click here: . www.ConnectNYCevent.com
She has also been a key player in the continued success of Savannah Fashion Week, where she serves as a board member and casting director.
Throughout the year, she acts as the booking agent for Halo and has worked on many national campaigns shot in Savannah and Atlanta.
Stephanie is the daughter of Savannah natives, Phil and Dusty Duke. She is a preacher’s daughter and knew there was a calling on her life at a very young age. Since opening Halo, Stephanie has had the opportunity to help hundreds of men, women and children with their self-esteem. In 2005, she was asked to speak at The Diocese of Fortaleza, Brazil. Through an interpreter, she was able to share her life story to six hundred Brazilian girls. Speaking at schools, churches and conferences year round, Stephanie continues to share her life story on being a model, falling short and finding the grace and peace to move on.
