BECOME A FEATURED MODEL
This section is offline, pending formatting improvements. We expect to have it operational in 2013.
10/11/12 - Although we are
published out of the Tampa Bay, Florida, area, Independent Modeling is
an international modeling resource site, and our featured models can be
from anywhere in the world. Featured models will be categorized in geographic
locations relevant to the geographically organized category on our modeling
BE A FEATURED MODEL ON INDEPENDENT MODELING
For the initial phase, we require that models which are featured on this site be clients of Aurora PhotoArts, or which are accepted through one of our upcoming promotions. We ar directly affiliated with Aurora PhotoArts. To be a client of Aurora PhotoArts, you can be considered for a free Featured Model profile any of the following ways.
PhotoArts Tampa Bay Photography and Design
1. Be a client of Aurora PhotoArts, with at least a three look modeling portfolio. You will need to book a shoot, obviously, and this is not free, as it is a career investment. Modeling portfolio photography sessions are guaranteed for quality, as the point of investing in a modeling portfolio is to have a portfolio which is relevant, and effective, in the marketing of your modeling career, and, again, Independent Modeling is directly affiliated with Aurora PhotoArts.
2. Be evaluated for a modeling job by Aurora PhotoArts by attending, and participating with, one of the free Tampa Shootouts events, which are used as a working audition for evaluating models for jobs. This is for established professional models, only, models with a portfolio, composite cards, and a work history, but it is free.
Independent Modeling Promotion
3. Once we get Independent Modeling fully operational, we plan on having some special promotions, where you can be added to the site as a featured model, free of charge. Aurora PhotoArts will create a Web Comp for you, also free of charge. This is limited to established professional models, however, and you have to have a current modeling portfolio and a real web site with a domain name to be considered. Pictures submitted to be integrated into the Web Comp have to be cleared, and the model must have permission and the rights to use those photographs. Also, we will be picky about which models who we will accept. More details will be revealed once we begin our promotions.

The agency way is no longer the only way of having a professional career as a model. There is no arguing against common-sense and proven business practices. Modern professional models think for themselves, network, and book work both as independent models and by using agencies as one of many sources of jobs. This is the future of the modeling industry.
