Introducing Starz Modeling Co.
When we began introducing Starz Girlz, we had no idea what an adventure we would be on. Starz began from a demand for local, sexy, fun models to represent local businesses and staff events. Along the way we learned a lot about how to best approach the business while keeping it fun, profitable and safe. But first...it is very important that we get a few things out of the way. #1 Yes, we are a real business. I never really understand this question. I have the certificate of incorporation and our Federal Tax id posted. We are a verified business through both Facebook and Google. All of our records are available and our models are contract workers, so no taxes are withheld. We pass through any and all net revenue to the model and issue 1099s at the end of the year. Models are screened and camera tested for viability to ensure each represents the Starz look and attitude.
We believe in empowering women who feel free to explore their sexy side and want to remain safe while among others who encourage healthy habits. Starz encourage women to express themselves and their sensuality through whatever means they personally choose while ensuring that they are treated fairly, get paid, and are treated with dignity and respect. Starz wants to level the playing field and break down the strong bias against women performing in the industry. Lastly we stand firmly against those who traffic women and children and enslave them as sexual captives and collectively we will combat through any means necessary to eliminate sexual crimes against women and children.
What Does Starz Do for Me?
We provide professional photo/videography, an award winning web experience, a simple presentation model, and security to women who choose modeling and/or e-marketing their images for purchase or licensing through our turnkey website. Add our brand/image consulting, and our aggressive marketing plans and you have a turnkey business where you can focus on your brand and content and let us handle the tedious business. With several channels of opportunity, we can put a plan together that will meet your income and flexibility needs. We represent all modeling types including fashion/portfolio, events and promotions, product and endorsement, adult and lingerie/boudoir/fine art.
What Am I Responsible For?
Contrary to popular belief, it's extremely rare that someone can publish a few photos to the internet and the magic sugar-fairy starts pouring money into your bank account. I am often asked, "how much are you going to pay me to model" for which I quickly reply, "whatever your market value demands." In fact in the traditional model, as an aspiring model, you would be paying your photographer. Having said that, there is a ton of money out there to go get. So, if I sponsor your startup and invest the time and energy into you and your portfolio, we will work together, respecting your image and boundaries to create opportunity for you. But that's the point, you will have to rise up and go get it. And together we will push to make you a success however you define it. If you are looking for fast money, go elsewhere. Modeling is hard work and producing quality content takes time and repetition to build your value in the crowded image field.
