Ms. Suddarth started NIYA Model Management in February of 2012. She didn't feel like there were any proper agencies in Utah like the ones she had worked for internationally. While there are many agencies in the Salt Lake area, none specialized in placement out of state and had ethically questionable practices concerning percentages and payments.

NIYA Model Management is a tight-knit, boutique agency. There are NO contract fees. We are a very hands-on model management company. We fight for this industry and protect our models, getting them the best rates. We are run like the best agencies worldwide.

We've placed models in NYC and LA with top agencies as well as Japan and UK and will be continuing international placement.

We recently launched a sister agency called NIYA Direct that focuses more on local modeling for clients' needs in the Utah market, as well as contributing performers to the many film and television shoots taking place in the state.

Some of the clients we have booked local models for are
Glasses.com, ModBod, Miche Handbags, Color By Amber, Yamaha, NuSkin, G54, UGLY Magazine, Kevin Murphy, Granite Flats TV show, and many more.
