He acknowledges the risk in the job, both monetary as well as personal. However, he is confident about his skill! His only worry is that the old bridge might just break one day.

A New York City modeling agency is defying fashion stereotypes, one arresting beauty at a time. The Anti-Agency, which began four years ago in the UK, has launched its New York City branch, eager to represent personalities deemed to strong for the roster of a classic modeling company. On its catalog of models are gender-bending fashion fans, a punk musician, and a member of one of New York City’s best-known all-female skating crew The Skate Kitchen.

“We were working in the industry and knew several girls who were unique and gorgeous creatives,” founder Lucy Greene told the DailyMail.com. “They didn’t want to join conventional model agencies for various reasons… either because they didn’t want to be pigeon holed as models and subsequently not taken seriously in their creative careers or because they were far too big flamboyant characters to be told what to do or how to be in terms of weight, hair, clothes etc.”
