corrupts absolutely, and any business monopoly enables unfair business
practices and unethical conduct. Only open markets with fair competitive
practices promote professional accountability and properly balance the
power among the players. The myth that the agency way is the only way
to have a modeling career is, in our opinion, the root of modeling scams,
and most modeling scams thrive on it. Modeling and talent agencies work
FOR the models whom they represent, and have no business managing the
careers of any model or telling them what to do. In our opinion, any agency
which manages the career of the models who they are supposed to be working
for is a blatant conflict of interest, because the agency also works for
the competition of the models, models who are also represented by the
modeling agency and who are trying to book the same modeling jobs.
of whether you want to be an agency model, or an independent model, modeling
and talent agencies will be in the equation. They should be in the equation,
too, as they are useful as one of many sources of modeling jobs, as long
as the agency is kept in their proper place: working FOR the models whom
they represent. Modeling and talent agencies, in our opinion,
have NO BUSINESS managing models or telling them what to do,
as it would be like an employee telling their employer what to do, and
the agency would not only be guilty of gross insubordination, but would
be out of line. In our educated, experienced opinion, any agency which
tries to manage the models who they are supposed to be working for, and
which tells models what to do in their modeling career, is a working under
a conflict of interest because they also work for the competition of the
model, who are the other models who the agency also works for. In our
opinion, such an inappropriate, unbalanced working relationship, which
has been long-accepted as standard business in the backwards,
corrupt modeling industry, opens the door to manipulative
tactics, scams, unethical coercement, compromise, activity which is not
in the best interest of models, and all sorts of unprofessional misconduct.
It is our opinion that agencies which try to control models are unethical,
and unprofessional. Do you want to be manipulated by those who
may not have your best interests in mind, or do you want you to be empowered
in your career? Modeling is hardly rocket science, and most models
can work their career better than any agency can, especially when the
model acquires the contacts and cultivates a professional working relationship
with the modeling jobs contacts which the agency normally works with.
Those models who are independent, and who keep modeling and talent agencies
in their proper place, can also be certain that they will also have their
own best interests in mind.

note that Tampa Bay Modeling is not affiliated
with any modeling agency, and we are proud of it. We do not link to them
or their web sites, as our models are not dependent upon them to book
modeling jobs. Look them up, if you can (at the time of this writing,
Tampa modeling and talent agencies are listed below us on search results,
and it is as it should be). Thank you.
UPDATE 03/05/12 - Our Tampa Modeling Agency web site, after three years online, is now where we want it to be on major search engines for "tampa modeling agency" (Number one on google; we can imagine that agency owners are screaming at their web masters about this, and this makes us smile. The truth will be known- The industry middlemen will be put in middle place, where they belong). We are now expanding it, with the objective to make agencies accountable for what they say and do (Some Tampa modeling agencies are unethical and unprofessional, in our professional opinion. Anyone who promotes agencies as the only legitimate way of modeling not only helps to enable modeling scams, in our opinion, but also either do not know what they are talking about and blindly follow what they perceive everyone else to be doing, or are knowingly hurting models and the future of the modeling industry.) Tampa modeling agencies answer to us, and to professional models. There is no arguing against this, and the writing is on the wall. We put them in their place. Also, any model who is foolish and cowardly enough to blindly allow themselves to be controlled and dependent upon agencies for jobs are going to pay for it by losing work from smart independent models who do not allow themselves to be limited like the agency models are, and the agency models will deserve it. Resistance is futile.
