Hello Models and Talent

Since I am focusing more on models needs like exposure and promotion opportunities, there are still a few things that models need to know about how to pick a team.

Pick A Good Model Manager and Team

If you are looking to surround yourself with a good manager and/or team (by team i mean agencies, promoters, development and training people etc.) there are alot of things you should know.

Information Is King

I can go on and on about how to pick a good manager and team, but if you are interested in how to find a good one send me a message on here, or call/text me at 612 695 5789, also I can always email you information that includes a checklist on how to spot the good and the bad, this list is not a complicated checklist, it's very easy to understand, and makes a lot of sense, there are very few good managers and team players out here, so screen very carefully.

If It Comes Out Their Mouths, It Should Be Backed up With Paper Work

It's true, that you must be careful with agreements, here are a few very important things you need to know

#1 What will that manager do for you each week, month, day and year and you need this in detail, you want to know what they will do for your overall career.

#2 What opportunities will be brought to you.

#3 What's ways do they plan to get exposure for your career.
cause remember whatever they say they will do to benefit your career, then that is exactly what they need to do while also backing it up with paperwork.

If You Need More Information Contact Me on This Blog, or Text Me

If you need more information on how to pick a good team, feel free to contact me on here or talk to me live at 612 695 5789, I can also send you a email detailing screening, ideas and advice of what you should include in your agreements.

I'll be happy to send you information on this.

News- The Box Model Promotion System - Being Tested on Real Models In Minnesota - Claims to Build Model's Portfolios Fast

The Box Model Promotion System (Super system as they call it) is going to start testing in February on 3-5 models in Minnesota before releasing. Creators of the box claims that it will help models reach higer levels of exposure, while building their resume/portfolio's

C.Marley (Marketing/Promotions Expert)  and Dontae Brown (Model and Project Manager) are very confident that this system will greatly improve and help models build their resume/portfolio's and secure them major opportunities in modeling.

The box is not something that you can just order with instructions on how to achieve success in modeling, the box is a team of real live experts who assist you with your modeling career, but all the secrets to a fast career is kept secure by Brown and Marley, who say they will work with models directly, and keep the secrets to fast growth, promotions and development under wraps.

Brown claims that, The Box Model Promotion system has over 317 different career options/tools that will help models look more attractive to those looking to hire them, everyone from casting directors, film, TV, Print, fashion designer, photographers etc. while also giving them exposure, Brown also claims that most models only need 20 of the career options/tools that The Box provides, in order to do very well and reach their goals.

Brown, Marley and team will be testing The Box Model Promotion System on a select few Minnesota Models Only, and the system will not be available to models in other states for at least 6 months around August or September. Brown states  "We want to make sure we work-out any bugs if any, before we offer it to 1000 models (or 20 models is each state)".

Brown and Marley seems to only want the most serious 1000 models or  20 models in each of the 50 states to take advantage of this system, and wants The Box to stay exclusive and rare, although it may be alittle pricey when it finally comes out, Brown claims that models who use the box, will be able to build their resume super fast, at a lower cost, with the same or better quality, and it will be worth the investment.

Ace Melody the model who is currently being used in The Box Model Promotion System Testing, states that "Models will be able to see 1st hand how this system works.  just contact me directly via Facebook and ask or you can read my resume"

Brown states "We are listening to all the experts in the industry on what the true model needs are so that we can make The Box Model Promotion System the most powerful system models will ever use.
The Proof? All you have to do is look at models resumes/portfolio who use the system and contact them and ask them what the think, then you'll be able to to make the decision for yourself".

Is The Box Model Promotion System Something that will make a HUGE difference in modeling and really help models
I guess we will have to watch to find out.

I have noticed one thing that all models have in common, and that is lack of promotion and exposure of their career..


I am known to offer free shoots to models, help them with promotion, give them ideas, include them in projects and do my best to get them paid in modeling.
If you don't want to get out here and do the dirty work, then let someone else do it.


If you want to go far in modeling then just do it, but you have to be careful when paying for any service, 1st you need to find out what you are getting from it and if it can really benefit you, the models I work with know that I don't like spending money on unnecessary things, for instance, photo shoots, I always tell them to never pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for photos if you do not have a plan or know how marketable you are, always try to negotiate a great price for yourself without sacrificing quality.


THANKS TO MARKETER CHARLEY MARLEY,  invented the (Modcast 1534 System) he has helped DONTAE BROWN PROJECTS put together a really helpful and beneficial model promotion and exposure package, this is something that is exclusive and will not be promoted in stores or on tv, it is a personal package for models who want to work.
Also, you should know, that you are under no pressure to do this and do not have to take advantage of it, we try to target and offer it to serious models who want to work with more personal and professional people, people who they can call and ask questions to find out information and inside information not available to other models.


Why did I say that, well the reason I say this is there are alot of model promotion sites out here, and how they work is, they ask you to pay a fee for signing up and offer you this and that, with no customer service and no live feed back, no real people, they just take millions of dollars of your money then sit back and spend it on cars, vacations and other bull%^& and leave you hanging. when was the last time these sites really got you the leads and connections you needed.. think about it, but if you do know of a few sites who are really good at taking care of you then email me at:  or text me at 612 695 5789 and let me know who they are, because I love dealing with honest, professional and reputable businesses that offer services that really benefit people.

We would rather work with a few models instead of millions, that way we keep quality going, and models can get the exposure they need and hopefully work paid gigs.


We want to make it exclusive to those who really want it,
The reason behind this, is because not everyone really and truly wants to make it in modeling, we only want those who really see the vision and really want to get more exposure to take advantage of the package.
The models who take advantage of it will see a difference.

Remember this is a package service that will put you out there and get you more exposure, that you can see and measure.

P.S. Give it a try for 3 months and if you don't like it stop anytime, money back guarantee for the current month you paid.

Models!!!! Please Don’t Travel Alone

Models!!!! Please Don’t Travel Alone

Always bring someone with you to any place where you do projects/photoshoots, and always ask the person who is hosting or in charge of the event questions about the location, security and people who will be there, if someone says they do not allow others at the shoot…. Well all I can say is.. that's your call as to if you are going to still go thru with it.

If you do decide to go to a location to do a project, and you feel uncomfortable or scared as soon as you walk in, then listen to your body and mind and walk away (GET OUT OF THERE)

Get Receipts and Paperwork…
Get it in writing

I cannot stress it enough models!!!!! when will you learn, please when you are doing business get receipts and a description of work to be performed by whoever you are working with.
I am hearing lots of stories about how this person or that company has took advantage of you, well, all I can tell you is that,  it is very, very smart to have everything in writing.
Remember it’s your career and your money, I always give receipts for work or services I provide, and you can always ask any model who deals with or who have dealt with Dontae Brown Projects that this is how I do business, and if you can’t put it in writing we don’t have a deal (I am an open book)

What is A Modeling Agency

What is A Modeling agency?

A modeling agency is a company that comprises modeling agents. A modeling agent, also known as bookers or model managers is a group of people who manages a model's career. \
Agents help a models find jobs, book jobs, gives advice, and gives photographs to various companies. An agent may send models to various clients and schedules modeling interviews (also called go and see).
A model does not have to work with an agent. It is up to the individual.

When working with any modeling agency make sure you know exactly what services, work, time and attention you will be receiving from them, never hesitate to ask questions and speak to current models who are represented by them.

Models Beware Of People You Cannot Find Information On

Models Beware Of People You Cannot Find Information On

I go on sites all the time to try to find good photographers, clothing designers and others to network with, and from experience, Im going to be straight with you a lot of people on these sites are bull SH&*, I would say about 70% if not more, I am going to give you an example of what to avoid if you are on these sites looking for people to work with.

Why is this a suspect ad or post
#1 No Name of the person who is offering the service.
#2 No clear contact information (phone number, email)
#3 No Serivce or business information links (no website, no blog, no facebook, myspace or no physical location)
#4 No business or personal reference information.
# No place to find examples pictures of their work, or information on their track record.
#5 No list of clients who they have worked with.
#6 No credentials shown at all.

From experience, when I have contacted people who place these type of ads or posts, I find that they give me the impression that they are scammers, they're usually not professional or carry themselves in a non-professional manner.
Hope this Helps you

Making Money Modeling

Making Money Modeling

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the median wage for commercial and print models was only $11.22 per hour in 2006.

Print models may work for manufacturers, stores, etc. for little or no pay. Experienced print models can make about $200- $ 500 per hour. Some print models do not work with an agent. The ones that work with an agent must give 15 - 20 % of the model's earnings to the agent. Famous print models can make thousands of dollars.

Beginner female runway model make less money than a model that have experience. The average wage for a female runway model can range from $ 250 -$1,000 an hour per runway walk. The average salary of a runway model is $ 500,000. Well known runway models can make thousands and millions per year. Costs of travel, transportation, food, hotels, etc. are deducted from the model's pay. Fashion models can get discovered by editors, cosmetic companies, photographers, fashion industry professionals, etc. A contract girl for a cosmetic company can make about $ 300,000 to $ 2 million per year.

Male runway model makes less than female runway models. Beginner models can earn up to $ 150 per shoot. The famous male models make at least $500,000 per year. Designer clothing and fragrance ads pay the most money. A male runway model can earn up to $8,000-$15,000 per day for high end catalogues.
