New Modeling Industry Website Launches "Facebook" for Models, Photographers, and More.
Modelrific.com, a new online community for the modeling industry, promises to fill the gap other industry sites have left behind. Models, photographers, stylists, agents, and other industry professionals will fall in love with this free alternative.

Photographer Geoff Sanders, who co-founded Modelrific™ along with entrepreneur Steve Ranieri noted, "Many websites have tried to be the answer that models, photographers, and other industry professionals around the world have looked for. As a member of these sites I always found them to lack crucial features, aesthetics, and professionalism, and it has long been a goal of mine to create a community built on these foundations, and I'm proud to announce Modelrific.com will now fill the gap these other sites have left behind."
Currently in beta testing, Modelrific.com offers features like those found in Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. While modeling industry professionals can create a profile and upload images like in many of the current modeling community websites, the similarities end there.
"We haven't changed the concept of a modeling industry website," explains Mr. Sanders, "we've just made it better, more robust, better looking, and classier."
Members will find features like privacy controls, instant chatting, activity walls, multi-user messaging, @mentions, forums, personalized URLs, and more when creating a free profile on Modelrific.com. New users will even be able to login with their Facebook username and password.
"One of my favorite features may be the ability for members to create public, private, or even hidden groups," added Mr. Sanders. "Whether you want to create a group for your local photography club, a fan group for a model, or a hidden group for invite-only workshops - our Groups feature empowers our members in a way no other modeling website on the web currently can." Members can join public groups or group admins can invite other members to join their private or hidden group, giving the member access to the group's forums, activity wall, and private chat room.
Modelrific.com will also be hosting many member contests and promotions exclusive to Modelrific.com members. The first of such contests is the 2011 Cover Model and Images Search supporting charity. Modelrific™ will be publishing a fine-art hardcover book featuring the best images on Modelrific.com and 100% of the proceeds will benefit PETA, the ASPCA, and The Humane Society.
