Hoffman International, now based in Leawood, Kansas, opened its original Overland Park office in 1986. This Kansas City-based Modeling Agency is committed to serving local and regional clients, as well as our top models signed with reputable agencies spanning the globe under Kim Hoffman’s guidance and expertise. Many of our past and present models have graced the covers of Vogue, Nylon, Simply KC, Elle, W, and KC Magazine, to name a few.
As a premier agency in the Midwest, Hoffman International represents Men, Women, and Children and books talent for Print, Runway, Broadcast, and Voiceover. After three decades-plus, Hoffman has many solid, long-standing relationships with our models, actors, and clients. Our Agency has had the distinct pleasure of working with both new and existing clients including Hallmark Cards, Cerner, Lee Jeans, Halls, Perfect Wedding Guide, and AMC Theaters.

Half-day rates will be based on models being booked at 4 hours (or less if a client requests), and 5 hours for video shoots.
