Our Vision

Where it all started


Shane SantaCroce founded SantaCroce Model Group in 2010 for the sole purpose of managing his own daughter. After meeting with dozens of agencies he decided there was a need for an ethical, professional and transparent agency so SantaCroce Model Group (SMG) was born.

Although his daughter decided not to pursue a long term career in the industry he moved forward managing kids and eventually clients of all ages.

He is now a father of 5 and his passion for helping others follow their dreams is truly an inspiration to everyone that he meets.

On his journey to build the Perfect Agency he partnered with Michael Galanes. With over 25 years in the industry, this was sure to be a perfect partnership. After a run with his own show "Little Miss Perfect", Michael continued to focus on Pageant coaching and booking Models for jobs all over the country.

Now the National Director of Worlds Perfect Model Search, he has found a new way to bring his competitive nature of the pageant world to the amazing world of modeling.

After taking a sabbatical to focus on other projects, Shane and Michael are back to doing what they love. Together they are an unstoppable force ready to help you follow the dream you deserve.
