Original history - Before 09/27/12

Florida-Models.com began back in 1996, as a way for Kitty, our first featured model, to obtainKitania Kavey, AKA Kitty, the founder of Florida Models. Cybercat19@AOL.Com modeling work. Back then, being disabled made it difficult for her to obtain agency representation, and she found the Net was a useful tool to reach her goal in becoming a professional model and actor. By 1997, our first male featured model, Ken, joined her, and soon after other models and actors wanted to be a part of the Florida-Models.com website. The site got so big, it was split in early 1999 to form the Florida-Actors.com website as well. Kitty continues to oversee the site, although Kitty being interviewed on the news about Florida Models.she now lives in Europe. She has done so well for herself using Florida-Models.com, she wanted to make sure the sites remain free for the users, and is still being supported by advertising dollars only. Along the way, the site has picked up a few awards, as well as a bit of local notoriety! We hope to continue to serve the Florida entertainment community as an informative resource as long as we can.

If you've been listed on the Florida-Models.com website, and had something cool happen because of it, we'd love to hear about it. Just send us an email by contacting us!

I would just like to compliment the Florida Models Website. More gorgeous models have been coming from all over Florida and entering our "Cute & Cool Bikini Contest/Model Search", from your site.

The replies (to our job listing) have been very good. At least 5 letters per week from models all over the state of Florida. This was very good to post the job listing. TWO BIG THUMBS UP!!!!!!!
Chip Gelmini (PRFCG@aol.com)

Site looks great. Already had several hits. Looks like you have a winning site and reputation with the models. Again-thanks,
Robyn Jackett (fotosman@fcmail.com)

Out of all the Model sites and Forums I have to say that florida-models.com is the one that produces the best results. Every time I post on florida-models.com either to recruit new models or to help get offers for my current models, my email responses go up by at least 50%. I usually don't believe or follow counters on webpages cause I don't believe the accuracy of their hits, in this case I don't need to see one. I see results. Keep up the good work. Anthony FIREBALL Felix, Publicist/Photographer - Fireball Models, Publisher/Editor - Fireball's FREEdom of STYLE Magazine

Your site has been an incredible help to us...Thanks to the Florida Models website we ran 3 ads and had over 400 responses in one month. Many thanks, Ellen Cheski-Gray, Shark Island Swimwear.

Kitty was interviewed about the Florida-Models.com website in Nov. '99, on the Florida Business Now TV program. Thanks Kitty! She also mentioned us in an article about her in Dec. '99, in the Sun Sentinel newspaper. Thanks again Kitty! (CyberCat19@aol.com)

Florida-Models.com is a great tool for casting models or staff for events. I have been posting with them for about three years, and the hits are unbelievable. First Class Productions, Inc wishes Florida-Models continued success for many years to come. Sunnie, firstclassmodels@aol.com
