Model Vanity Expo is a series of photo shoot workshops with select photographers to help new and established model talent develop a unique portfolio of images at no cost. This private event offers talent multiple settings and safe surroundings.
RIVERSIDE, Ca. USA, June 19, 2008 / -- IP MicroMedia LLC web property ModelVanity.com (website in development) and Model Vanity Studios today announced a partnership to launch a first of a kind “Model Vanity Expo”. The partnership promises new and established models the chance to work with multiple, selected photographers in the presence of sponsors who may select talent for upcoming projects.
"We are excited about providing all established and new models this great opportunity to showcase their talent and realize their modeling potential," founder Oscar Toscano stated. "Opening our private studio in Riverside, Ca. to this unique casting and offering talent and select photographers a chance to work under our expertise in a nationally known studio lot is great experience and networking opportunity."
“We are using this event as a proving ground for our model shoot expo concept. New and existing talent can come and pose in more diverse surroundings then any “Mansion” or “lot” with talented photographers. There is a four thousand square foot, two story studio building, outdoor water gardens and unique structures and several auto and custom bike props to choose from. All models (glamour, fashion, fetish, bikini, import, Gothic, non-nude) are encouraged to attend this event. We are also providing skilled makeup and hair dressers. Ladies should bring several wardrobe changes to show off all the looks they posses.” added Oscar Toscano.
In addition, several sponsors will be on hand to review talent for potential future modeling opportunities. Authorized media and Spanish television stations will also be on hand to cover this event. Models will receive limited edition Model Vanity Clothing as well. The event concludes with a dinner sponsored by TiosTacos.com at 5pm. After party to follow.
All the talent attending this event will be featured on our site with the best images on display from all participating photographers. Online visitors can learn more about the models and cast their vote for their favorite girl at ModelVanity.NET.
“We have experienced a huge response since we announced this event from talent throughout the area. Over 150 candidates requested to attend this event from every ethnic type, but we are limiting attendance to 30 girls this time, “commented Oscar. “We are still reserving two more spots for one male and one female model that would like to attend.”
The event will kick off at 9 am. with a workshop for all photographers attending. “Using Adobe Lightroom in your digital work flow” will teach basic meta data techniques. A small discussion on ways to earn money from photography will conclude the mini workshop. Presentation is sponsored by ProImageVault.com. Photographers attending are invited to bring reflectors, strobes, or any gear to make the most of our 6 hour event!
Well equipped photographers who wish to attend can register at:

I've also been a bit busy watching the systematic dismantling of the US economy via the derivative and MBS markets. I hope we really survive this crash. Keep up with my commentary at ONmoney.NET

Most agency models are "commercial" models - meaning that they appear on local or national print ads or television shows, in catalogs, work in local fashion shows and trade shows and similar kinds of work. They don't get huge fees (although pay can be very good indeed), national recognition or lucrative national ad contracts, but they are the backbone of the modeling industry.
Fashion models also work as commercial models, although the reverse is rarely true. In smaller market cities in the US, most agencies concentrate on "fashion print" or "commercial fashion" models, who tend to be tall, slim and beautiful in a more mainstream way. This is "commercial fashion", a subset of commercial modeling.
Very, very few commercial models make a living at it. It is not a career, it is something they do on an occasional basis while they do something else "full time". Outside of the major markets (New York, Chicago, maybe Miami and Los Angeles) it is doubtful that there is any city in America in which more than a dozen people make a good living at modeling, but in virtually all cities and substantial towns there are many, usually hundreds, who are in the modeling market, and who occasionally find work.
The requirements for being a commercial model are very different from being a fashion model. It certainly helps if you look a lot like a fashion model, but there is work available in most markets for many other types. Models can be older, shorter, heavier and need not be pretty or beautiful - "interesting" often will get work, and “generic good looks” is the most common look required. Commercial models are asked to play roles in pictures: “young mom”, “active retiree”, “Doctor”, “executive”, and they look like idealized versions of these roles. In most of the markets we have surveyed the hardest demand for an agent to fill is for middle-aged men!
Things that help a commercial model are acting ability, an outgoing personality, easy availability for jobs, and good self-presentation skills.
The great majority of commercial jobs are booked through agencies, except for those that are given to friends or members of the client's family.

If she is a model and you know her name or you recognize her face, she is an "editorial fashion model." Seems simple enough, but it isn't.
"Editorial fashion models" work in New York City (in this country) for the simple reason that very, very little editorial fashion work is booked out of anywhere else. There are exceptions, of course: Miami in winter (but often using New York models), and sometimes Los Angeles or Chicago, but these are just that: exceptions. If you want to be a fashion model, you go to New York. There are lots of opportunities abroad as well (Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo . . .), but only one real one in the US.
For women, if you want to be seen on the cover of a national fashion magazine, to sign a lucrative national ad contract, to become a "supermodel", or even to be a "fashion model", you need the following when you start:
1. Be between 15-19 years old.
2. Be between 5'9" and 6' tall.
3. Be thin. Really, really thin. Something like 105-115 pounds, except for Plus models, who can be dress sizes 10-20 or so, depending on the market.
4. Don't have especially large breasts (34C is generally the upper bound of acceptable), lots of stretch marks, tattoos, piercings or highly tanned skin. Dark skin is fine, lots of tan is not fine.
5. Be beautiful. Not necessarily pretty, but beautiful. An interesting, beautiful face is at least as good for a fashion model as is an "all American" look.
6. Have the right personality for it: a strong commitment to modeling (not just an interest in it), an ability to take rejection (something most beautiful girls aren't good at), a thick skin, not a lot of modesty (nobody cares what you don't want someone to see, we have a fashion show to put on . . .) and a lot of self confidence.
7. Be willing to relocate to a major market, with New York City strongly preferred.
8. Be willing to travel to strange locations with no friends there to support you, little money, little help, lots of opportunity for both good and bad things to happen to you.
If you have all of that, you are a very, very rare person, and you have one chance in a hundred of becoming an editorial fashion model. No more than that. If you are anything else, you need to think about some other kind of modeling.
Requirements for men are a little less stringent; depending on the market city, men need to be 5'11" (6' strongly preferred) to 6'2" (in some cities, 6'3") tall, slim (40 jacket, 30-32 waist; in some markets slimmer is preferred). Men can be older to start. Age 18-25 is fine.
Editorial fashion jobs are booked almost exclusively through "editorial fashion agencies" - and those hardly exist outside New York.

"The Sidereal Calendar is the oldest and first human calendar. Also known as the Kemetic Calendar, it has been resurrected by Master Naba. This is the calendar that was used by the Pharaohs, and it is still being used today in traditional Africa as well as throughout the world.
The calendar features the original names of months, days of the weeks, and decans. The week is ten days instead of seven (a week was originally seven days), and the Deities that govern each month and week are noted. Spiritual observances, Divine holy days, and Ancestral holy days are noted, as well as totem animals for every month."Since time moves forward 1 day every 72 years, the Zodoaic and calwdnar that we have been forced tpo accept is over 4,000 years old. Perhaps that system gives us insight into who we once were, or who we think we are. The Solar Sidereal Calendar System gives us insight into wo whe REALLY are...
who we are meant to be.
This weekend, I had the opportunity to partiucitpate in a teleconference dealing with the Fifth Night of the Galctic Underworld, with Andi Mac & Jag from the Mayan Calendar Code. They are students of John Carl Calleman. What follows are some of my notes and personal thoughts. On decmeber 20, 2007, I will give a presentation on this topic at Black New World in West Oakland.
The week before the teleconference, I had been feeling my perception of life transforming, from one based on matter to one based on water and light. In other words, from a perspective of solid to wave and particle like. I felt that it was time for me to learn how to walk on water, because the ground/earth/reality is changing so fast, that as soon as I get used to one thing it chnages. I felt that if I could learn to move mnore like water, that would be closer to liviong like light than the earth. The Earth is a very dense and very low vibration of light energy. it is NOT solid. I feel that it is time foe me to live more like a Star Woman living on Earth than an Earth Woman that looks at the stars. My friend and companions and faith can vouch for this, that I had been feeling this way and commenting on this matter for about a week prior to the teleconference......
