Independent Modeling is a resource site for independent and agency-represented models who wish to enhance the marketability of their modeling careers, as well as have an advantage over limited models; those limited models being agency-only models who do not think for themselves, do not invest in their career, and allow modeling agencies to manage them, and to tell them what to do. Other limited models include models who try to put together competent professional modeling portfolios for free, using TFP, and who try to compete against professional models with cheap career tools. The independent models who use Independent Modeling are smart, professional models who know enough that to have an advantage over other models, that they have to invest in their careers.

Working on the new Independent Modeling site

09:00 AM

Hello everyone. This is the first blog post of the new Athena Class Independent Modeling site, a late 3rd Generation web site and the 7th Independent Modeling site. I've archived the previous blog posts, and I must say that, because the design of this new web site is actually two years old now, that I am happy with it. Independent Modeling is finally where it whould have been from the beginning, but it benefits from over a decade of experience, research, and developmen; this site is now, literally, the most advanced modeling resource site in the world. Now all that I have to do is work hard on the site to get it to where it needs to be in the coming months, and eventually upgrade it to a full 4th Generation web site with PHP databases and flash multimedia. I've been updating file directories, file paths (I did rename some directories, but had to switch them back because the search engines had already indexed the existing files, so Independent Modeling is a slave to its old site files, with the exception of the IM directories from years ago, which will be maintained as an archive and will not make up the main site. The next Athena Class sites, which consist of Independent Acting, Florida Models, Florida Actors, and an Independent Talent sites, will have the advantage of being able to start fresh, and should be better in every way, with refinements in every aspect of the sites), and, just today, I decided that the site is so georgeous that I wanted to be able to print it out and frame it (and I'm being serious), so I upgraded all of the graphics and image sets to 300 PPI/DPI print resolution from its original resolution of 72 DPI/PPI. Now, I am working on support content for all of the main sections and the subsections, so that is why I am ending this post, now. I will post soon about the new, revolutionary features and tools that this site will have. For now, I need to work hard on getting this site online and operational, at least intitially, this week.

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.

This is an Athena Class modeling resource web site by Aurora PhotoArts, a Passinault.Com company. Athena Class 0001, commissioned 011213.1000 hrs.
