Large retailers like Old Navy rarely work with individual models directly. There are just too many kids and teens who want to model and having open casting calls would be a mess. Retailers have tight deadlines for their advertising materials and prefer to work with professionals that can save them time by sending them the right models rather than having to find those
models themselves. Many shoots and castings come with very short notices and they depend on agents to send them the pre-screened and available models immediately.
The company has commented that photo shoots for babies, children and teens happen all over the country and the company prefers to use modeling agents located in the regions that they are shooting in.
Old Navy uses baby models that are 8 to 13 months old for its baby clothing
line and use kids who are 6 to 10 years old for their kids division.
Adult models are usually cast in New York city and they use New York City model and talent agents to cast the adult models. Old Navy commercials are
normally shot in Los Angeles and actors from those commercials are sent by Los Angeles talent agents.
