10 Years on… It seems like only yesterday that I signed up on their site.

ModelMayhem was created on March 3, 2005. They contacted me shortly after and invited me to join their site. I was already on OneModelPlace and was looking to but my model connections and MM was the perfect choice, so on April 8, 2005 I became a member and am known on MM as ADCook or #531. A decade later, ModelMayhem is still around – and bigger and better than ever!

Model Mayhem is a popular networking site for models, photographers, makeup artists, hair stylists, Photoshop enthusiasts, and others involved in the photo industry. The owners of Model Mayhem bill it as the web site “Where Professional Models Meet Model Photographers”. Model Mayhem members can share their portfolios, participate in forums and arrange to work together. Read “How to Use Model Mayhem for Networking” on eHow:

Over the years I’ve worked with several models through ModelMayhem who have inspired my art and it’s been great! Many of my favorite paintings have been inspired by my Mayhem muses. Years ago I worked with Model Lyndsey and she since inspired many of my most renown paintings.

Congrats to Over the years they have become the #1 portfolio website for professional models, photographers, makeup artists, stylists, designers and digital artists. Industry professionals can create a profile, upload their photos, connect with other industry pros and find work. And it works. Thanks MM for an awesome ten years!
