In May 2010, we proudly announced that OneModelPlace.com
acquired iStudio.com. Both sites will continue to serve our members, and we have some exciting improvements
coming up in the next few months.
1. Why should I be on both OneModelPlace.com and iStudio.com?
OneModelPlace.com's mission is to serve the modeling, photography, and associated
industries by offering the opportunity to create and maintain a powerful online
presence regardless of a user's technical skills, geographic location or experience.
OMP provides models, photographers, casting agents, and clients access to the most
diverse talent pool that the world has ever seen.
OneModelPlace.com empowers professionals with tools that enable them to quickly locate, evaluate,
negotiate with and hire talent anywhere and everywhere. Additionally, OMP enables a
very robust level of communication, education and promotion for our audience. OMP
will continually provide our customers with more tools, features, and programs
to develop their careers, than any other source.
While OneModelPlace.com is focused on models and photographers, iStudio.com
expands to other talents such as actors, singers, choreographers, composers,
and models that want to branch into the film industry.
Aside from images, you can also present video and music on iStudio.com.
The answer is simple: the more exposure you get, the more jobs you will land. Both
sites have the capability of bringing you paid offers and photo shoot assignments
by contacting members and responding to casting calls.
2. What does the acquisition of iStudio.com mean for OneModelPlace.com members?
As OMP members, you can continue to expect the high quality of service that you
have received in the past. In addition, we will be working over the next several
months to set up a free profile for you on iStudio, giving you additional exposure
and job opportunities.
3. What does the acquisition by OneModelPlace.com mean for iStudio.com members?
iStudio.com will continue to provide you with a wide range of promotional tool
and features. Along with modeling and photography, iStudio is gearing up to become
more focused on acting, singing and performing artists, allowing them the chance
to promote themselves online.
4. Will iStudio.com remain free?
Yes, iStudio.com will remain free.
5. Will iStudio.com members be able to get a membership on OneModelPlace.com?
If you are an iStudio model, you are entitled to a free Bronze membership on
OMP, which will allow you to post 21 images on your portfolio. If you are an
iStudio photographer or other member, you can get started on OMP with a Bronze
membership for an annual $15 charge. All members of OMP are able to move up to
higher memberships by clicking on the UPGRADE button at the top of the main
home page. Note: In some instances, photographers and other members may be
offered a complimentary membership upgrade on a case-by-case basis. You can
submit your new OneModelPlace.com profile link for consideration via email
-- please write "iStudio Member Submission" in the subject line.
6. Will OMP members automatically be signed up on iStudio.com?
Yes, this will happen over the course of the next few months.
7. Should I update both sites often?
Members are encouraged to update their accounts on both OneModelPlace.com
and iStudio.com regularly, not only to keep their information and images
current but to promote themselves to other members as well.
8. Should I upload the same photos on both sites?
You can upload the same images to both sites, but choosing to upload
different photos will give your portfolios greater variety and open
you up to more work offers.
