TAMPA BAY MODELING
Clueless amateur models undermine
the independent modeling and talent movement
COCKTAILS FOR LADIES 10:30 - MIDNIGHT
spell check, and love the ALL CAPS copy. Also, just how are the models
"desirable"? Are they bait for horny guys to come to the club,
so that they can hit on models? Is this really about alcohol sales? Are
kiddie college models really duped into helping the clubs pimp out models
as a way to increase sales, in the name of "networking"? - Ed)

Why would I have to go to some night club to meet models? Mixing drinking
and business? Whatever happened to go-see's and comp cards? I like the
"VIP tables for approved models" line..... sounds like some
arena where you shop for models sitting around. Is this party chaos independent
modeling? I would think not (and this is coming from someone who takes
parties and events very seriously).
This is not really aimed at you in particular, mind you, but I get form
emails like this all of the time, so I guess that you have all of these
"party models" running around thinking that the only way to
get work without going through an agency is to run around networking at
night clubs. Does it really work if you are looking for mainstream modeling
work which is NOT promotional work for night clubs and questionable businesses?
Actually, THAT would make sense, because you don't need a comp card, or
a portfolio, to get promotional modeling work.
My work is cut out for me. I HAVE to do something about the ignorance,
and chaos, in the modeling industry these days. No wonder modeling agencies
smirk whenever you bring up models who are working independently. They
maintain a measure of relevance because what these people claiming to
be models are doing is hardly a threat to their business.
I roll my eyes every time I see that Erica model posing with all of her
“model friends” in dark night clubs. One of them is a model
who I quit working with nine years ago because she was lying to me and
playing games with photographers, and then she went out and had all of
these cosmetic enhancements done because she was insecure about her appearance,
and thought that it was what she had to do in order to compete, and to
be a model. As a result, an otherwise talented model, who could pull off
a variety of looks in print modeling, locks herself into a glamour modeling
look, limiting her career. It’s a joke, really, with just a tinge
I’m just saying.
I’ve told my friend Kitty over at Florida Models all of the time
that the problem with all of the modeling job offers that we get on modeling
job boards is that they are promotional modeling jobs, and not the jobs
that models normally get through agencies, such as catalog and print modeling
work (and don’t tell me that there are a ton of fashion modeling
jobs going on in the Tampa Bay area, because I know otherwise. Sure, there
are SOME shows, but how many of them pay the models? Why are models cool
with that? Networking? Give me a break! I call it limiting your career
by branding yourself a low-rent, freebie model! Break the cycle!).
I suppose that, at first, we will have to put up with all of the bottom-feeder
promotional modeling job offers on modeling job boards just a little bit
longer. The good jobs are coming, and I will tell you this much..... hanging
out in night clubs is not going to cut it in regards to being considered
for those jobs. Don’t listen to me, though, just keep at it.....
and good luck competing with models who have composite cards, portfolios,
real web sites, tasteful pictures in their portfolios, and who appropriately
submit their marketing materials to the companies in consideration of
landing a go-see so that they can book a good modeling job!
And don’t get me going about the freebie portfolio networking sites
full of amateurs who think that they do not have to invest in their careers.
It’s the same deal there, too.
I’d like to think that I know what I’m talking about, too,
because I own Tampa Bay Modeling, and Independent Modeling, and my model
friends book the jobs that models who hang out in nightclubs aspire to
I feel inspired to write an article called “Party Models”.
I’m also going to publish this on Tampa Bay Modeling. If you ignore
it, at least the time that I spent composing it won’t be wasted,
and it will help the thousands of readers that my site has.
Good day, and have fun at the club!
