Because of our beautiful model base, attention to detail and our ability to create stunning eye candy - we attract pretty much everybody under the sun from all parts of the world. We believe that women's beauty should be greatly appreciated in a positive manners and not frowned upon by various groups and societies. We do this by showcasing models from all genres which is were the name Mixed derived from. The word means a Mixture of cultures, races and societies.

Mixed Magazine Photoshoot FAQ's
Can I bring someone along with me?
We are very strict about not allowing chaperones/escorts accompanying models during our photoshoots. This has been put into place for your safety as well as ours. We have shot with over 100 models and they all have experienced complete safety and comfort during the full length of the shoot. Due to popular demand we have decided to create a list of reasons why this policy is in full effect.
1) Allowing unknown individuals puts us at risk and we can not be assured that he or she will not cause conflict.
2) The shoots sometimes last several hours. It's extremely rare that a chaperone will not become overwhelmingly bored thus causing them to become uncomfortable and unpredictable.
3) Our shooting styles are trade secrets that have been studied for years to create our unique effects separating us from any competition. Our techniques simply are not open to the public.
4) We have had past experiences where escorts have snapped off cell phone images unknowingly of our shoots and posted them online. Our sets are private. The only way to prevent such circumstances from happening is to simply not allow accompanied photo shoots.
5) When dealing with another individual(escort) it takes away the time we need to really get to know the subject matter - you the model. The model and photographer deserve 100% undivided attention in order to focus properly on bringing home the winning shots!
6) A very important quality that is demanded by our models is your ability to showcase being independent. We believe a truly beautiful woman should handle herself properly in all situations.
7) We respect each models privacy and we do not bring unknown individuals to our shoots. We feel that the same respect is due in return.
8 ) We don't need anyone to assist us with hair placement, tags showing, poses, etc. The photographers job is to ensure that his work is controlled and perfected in the manner he sees fit in order to execute his craft to the highest degree. Plus we have photoshop. 😉
9) A photographer and model is a professional job just as any other job in the world. It's obvious to everyone as to what would be the response if you wanted to bring your friend to work with you.
10) If you feel you need more reasons or would like to take the time to research us more please feel free. We need for you to feel completely comfortable and free to be as sexy as possible during our shoots so please take the time to allow yourself to do so.

When do I get to see my photos?
Immediately after a photoshoot we quickly upload them to our online proofing service at http://www.mixed.smugmug.com. You will be provided a password to view them but not to download and post until we have done our post production work on them. We then pick the best of the best which in most cases is in between 50-200 images per set. We then will perform post production to color enhance, doctor and post logos on each image. Finally we will then reupload the corrected images ready for you to have and do whatever you would like to them. There are some cases where we will provide images without our logos upon request.
Do you doctor the photos?
We consider ourselves one of the extinct breeds of photographers that don't misuse adobe photoshops capabilities. We have been around since the very beginning stages of photoshop and we know that it's intention was not to create fake alterations to peoples bodies and faces. We only enhance the image were we believe the camera has failed in such areas as contrast, color correction, saturation and other photographic areas.
What if I don't like my images and my video?
Mixed Magazine holds the rights to use any material that is shot during your photoshoot. When you sign the model release then you are releasing the rights to Mixed Magazine. The #1 rule of thumb in the modeling world is this: If you don't want it to be used then don't shoot the shot. To make this more clear, if you don't want to be shown in a thong bikini then don't bring a thong bikini and pose in a thong bikini. Although this concept is very simple we somehow deal with models almost daily that do not understand it. Mixed Magazine features sexy photos so if you feel that they are sexy then we doing our job. In the very worst of cases we will remove your images for a $5,000 dollar contract cancellation fee only if you have not been featured on the cover. But even if you opt for us to remove the images for that fee, remember that we still hold the rights to sell and use the images and video to other companies world wide. Please think ahead of time how you want to represent yourself and we ask that you maintain this style during your shoot to avoid any future complications. Please do not bug or harass your photographer to remove these images because the photographer does not have the rights to the images.
Where are you guys located?
We are based out of Cocoa Beach, Florida which is 30 min east of Orlando. It's one of the safest towns in the United States and is home to the Space Shuttle, I dream of Jeannie and 10x World Champion Surfer Kelly Slater. We are centrally located in Florida so it's easy for us to shoot in almost every part of the state at a moments notice. We frequent Miami and Tampa as they are both only 3 hours from Cocoa Beach.
Does Mixed Magazine shoot nudity?
We shoot either non-nude or nude depending on the models preference. All of the content that is shot is protected very closely and securely in our members area. Unlike other nude model companies like playboy and all others we do not expose nude photos for advertising purposes.
What happens to the images?
We carefully choose the very best top 10 images from your photo sets and add our professional post production touches to them. They then get posted on your unique blog page on our website along with your bio, web links, interview and resume. We then let social networking go to work as hundreds of blog sites and social networking sites repost them with the Mixed Magazine logo printed on them. All of these postings continually drive traffic back to our website where visitors can then read you directly from the source. People and companies will hopefully recognize you and become interested in hiring you for various modeling projects. These images will also be provided to you. The other remaining images that are not used on your unique blog are contained in our private section. These images are highly and effectively protected from freely being downloaded.
Does Mixed Mag do behind the scenes videos?
We do create 1 sexy behind the scenes video of each photoshoot. Due to the overwhelming amount of misuse of online videos through tube sites where they continually steal videos for their own benefit, we have decided to protect our videos in our exclusive member section.
What's the difference between being in the Model Directory and being a Mixed Magazine Model?
A Mixed Magazine Model gets all the privileges of the consistent online viral marketing. She also gets free photoshoots on availability. Mixed Magazine Models get placed on that Mixed Models page which gets the second highest traffic on our website. Models in the Model Directory only get to post a few images and may or may not have a full interview, bio or resume included.
How do I get to be a Mixed Magazine Cover Model?
This is the highest level you can achieve below being Mixed Magazine Model of the Year. Cover Models are posted biweekly which is yes, 2 per month. The 1st and the 15th of every month. Cover Models are carefully chosen. They must posses all the right things at that right time. We like to feature models on the cover when they are at the hottest peak moment in their career.
What kind of images should I submit?
Seeing that almost every photographer has gone photoshop crazy we can't trust hardly anything other than candid images. This also gives us an example of how sexy you can make yourself get using your own camera in the comfort of your own home.
We hope this has been informative to you and we hope to work with you very soon. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
