The Media Barr, lnc. has been working with Arizona Model and Actor Management for over a year. We first contacted AMAM to secure models for a print fashion shoot for one of our clients, 202 Magozine. Since then, we’ve worked with AMAM’s president, Gail McCauley, on numerous projects. Her multi-faceted talent is always a pleasure to work with. Meanwhile, McCauley is dedicated to their success and that of her agency. She makes her clients’ priorities her own and she is always on hand to ensure projects run smoothly, from start to finish. It is our pleasure to recommend AMAM for SAG membership.

“We worked with Gail and her team at the Arizona Model and Actor Management to source a large group of diverse models on a short timeline and tight budget. Gail and her models all delivered for us with flying colors…and balloons! Highly recommended for their professionalism, and great value.”

Working with Gail and all of the other girls at AMAM has been a wonderful experience for me as a model. I recently did a runway show with ten other AMAM models and had so much fun with all the girls and everyone there. Something I thought was so awesome about that event is, when I was having my makeup done, the girl who was doing it for me said she thought it was so awesome how all of the models were friends and were having so much fun together talking and taking pictures backstage. She said that she has done a lot of events for other agencies and that its never like that and it’s typically very “cut-throat”. She said “I would say this is not the norm and its very cool to see it” It made me grateful to be surrounded by such beautiful girls inside and out and very proud to be a model at AMAM.

“I had the honor of meeting Gail McCauley when she graciously agreed to judge a natural, childrenʼs beauty pageant that I recently launched. I knew I could only associate my organizationʼs name with the most reputable, honest, and professional agency for kids in Arizona; after much scrutiny, I found that AMAM was just that.
Gail assisted in selecting Arizonaʼs Little Miss & Masterʼs first Royalty Court, and I have been so pleased with the group of children chosen. Gail took the time to research my organization and philosophy and exceeded my expectations as a qualified judge.
I look forward to working with Arizona Model and Actor Management in the future, both with my organization and representation of my own child.”

"Gail E. McCauley runs the "best agency" in Arizona. What makes her agency so unique is that she makes it a point to personally know her talent. You are not just another headshot, you are a valuable part of the success that Gail will capture in this market. Gail gives you the time and attention that you need to reach your goals, and will do all she can to make that happen for you. She understands that when you succeed, the agency does as well. She is a "refreshing change." Her concept of being a" boutique agency" is new to Arizona and this ideal will serve her very well. I am honored to say that I am being managed by Gail and look forward to a long term working relationship with Arizona Model and Actor Management!"

“Several years ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting Gail in the midst of launching both of our organizations. Under Gail’s leadership, Arizona Model and Actor Management has flourished and launched the careers of many local models and actors. As a leading business woman, Gail is a great example of determination, perseverance, and benevolence in the community. As one of the advisors for the Arizona Consortium of the Arts, Gail has generously contributed her time in organizing and participating in fundraising and community events. I am honored to call Gail my friend, colleague, and supporter."”

“Gail is the consummate professional. She expects professionalism from her talent, and she delivers it as their agent in return. She does not tolerate anything less than excellence from her talent which allows me to trust her choices when running an audition or casting her people. She has the type of work ethic that makes it easy to choose her agency as one of my top 2 in Arizona.”
Helen McCready, C.S.A.
“We only deal with reputable agencies and clients that our 4 million members can benefit from and Gail is one of those clients – working with her on an open call for her agency was such a pleasure! All the parents were thrilled with the response and efficiency from Gail, as she made sure every question was answered at the casting and even stayed overtime to personally give everyone feedback on their child. She even kept up with the blog posts and Facebook comments to make sure everyone was answered in a timely manner. We will definitely be working with her again!
If you get the chance to connect with Gail, you are very lucky! She is the epitome of a great business woman while maintaining a genuine compassion for everyone she comes into contact with, it’s hard to find this sort of combination in ANY business, and she has it, along with a great eye for talent! You can always depend on Gail for anything.”

“It is my distinct pleasure to recommend Gail McCauley, a consummate and personable professional who represents – in the finest way – Arizona models and talent. Gail was instrumental in securing talented models for my fashion atelier on several occasions, and often at the 11th hour. She made herself available 24/7 to help us when last-minute scheduling crises occurred and we needed to re-cast models on very short notice. Gail’s work ethic and passion for both her clients and talent are truly impressive. I have gotten to know Gail personally as well as professionally and I have observed how much she truly cares about the people she represents – her models and talent love her and that is no surprise. In every interaction I’ve had with Gail, she has been the epitome of professionalism and graciousness. She is someone with whom you will truly enjoy doing business and I wish her much success.”

“Gail is the sweetest , honest and trustful person I ever met in this brutal business.She says what she means and you always can count on her. I have worked with so many people in this business for 30 years and Gail is truly a jewel you want to have in your jewelry box .”

“I have worked with Gail to photograph many projects including fashion shows, commercial photo shoots and modeling and acting portfolios. She is an excellent agent who is honest, trustworthy and takes great care of her clients. I highly reccommend her and her agency.”
“It’s always fun and exciting to try out models, but it’s also intimidating at the same time. Arizona Model and Actor Management provided me with the security of knowing that the models will be there on time and will work hard to put their best face forward. I had the pleasure of working with 4 models and all of them were professional, easy to work with, took my directions, but made it their own and as a result I will have the best gown catalog yet.”

“Gail was referred to me by photographer, Sylvia Hardt of Sylvia Hardt Photography. From the time that I met Gail, I have felt welcomed into her agency and encouraged to become the best and most effective talent that I could at my craft. When we first met, my skills and experience lent themselves toward the modeling end of the business. Not only did Gail spend hours of her time talking to me to determine my needs, but she also helped guide me in the direction of pursuing an additional dream that I had- the acting end of the industry. It’s this ‘hands on’ dynamic that sets Gail apart from others in this business. She takes the time to work with each of her talent to best determine their unique gifts and help place them where they fit best in the industry, helping them to exceed their own expectations. When I need her to answer a question, plain and simple- she is there, 24/7. Now just a few short months later I have had several auditions and opportunities, both in modeling and in the acting areas. I am so pleased to be part of an agency that takes a personal interest not just in ‘me’ as a talent, but in ‘me’ as a person.”

“I’m a local clothing designer here in the Phoenix area. One of the greatest and most challenging parts of my job is putting a fashion show together. Gail has helped me with almost every show I’ve been involved in over the past 2 years and she has made my job in this area so much easier! She understands the image I want to convey with my line and provides me with models that fit my needs. She is extremely professional and very quick to respond to any questions I may have. I know she is a busy lady, but she always makes me feel like my project is top priority (even though I know all her clients are equally important)! She has also helped my out with media shoots on multiple occasions. Working with Gail/AMAM, I know all bases are covered and I never have to worry. Gail is always on task and has everyone’s best interest at heart!”
“Gail is a true professional. She selects excellent talent for her ‘family’ of models and actors.”
