NO OTHER EVENT IN THE INDUSTRY IS QUITE LIKE THE IBMS. Founded in 2011 by husband and wife business duo, Patrick and Elina McKinney, The IBMS was the very first event of it's kind to launch in this cutting edge modeling and photography industry. The IBMS is now currently one of the largest international model searches, networking outlets, career launching platforms, online voting contests and event production companies known worldwide.
What separates The IBMS from the rest is that we take tremendous pride in working with everyone, whether you have been in the industry for years or you have just tried out your first photo shoot yesterday. We, at The IBMS, hold great value in our beliefs and we believe that beauty and talent shine in all shapes, sizes, styles, ethnicity and experience backgrounds.
Throughout each year, we hold numerous regional model searches across the globe along with our monthly online contests. Each IBMS Regional Title Holder and IBMS Monthly Online Title Holder advances to our Semi-Annual week long International Finals, Networking Convention and Resort Party which
is hosted twice each year at a 5 Star All Inclusive Resort in a beautiful Caribbean destination. This event is also open to all models, photographers, designers, hair stylists, makeup artists, modeling agencies, magazines, industry professionals, friends, family and fans.
During this event, numerous productions take place including our International Finals, networking convention, Ravish Sands swimwear fashion show, body art fashion show by Mark Frazier (the official body paint artist of The Playboy Mansion), photo shoots, modeling and photography workshops, calendar shoots, magazine shoots, casting calls, photo shoot excursions with dolphins and other exotic animals, IBMS softball game, pool parties, costume parties, fun and exciting nightly theme parties with international celebrity DJ's and much more.
NEARLY 90% OF THE MODELS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO HAVE ATTENDED AN IBMS EVENT IN THE PAST HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED IN NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PRINT AND ONLINE PUBLICATIONS. THE IBMS CONNECTS INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD; CREATING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR EXPOSURE AND SUCCESS. WE WORK VERY CLOSELY WITH MAJOR PUBLICATIONS AND DESIGNERS THAT SOURCE THEIR MODELS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS DIRECTLY FROM IBMS EVENTS.
Alongside The IBMS' national and international events, our company also produces its own industry/lifestyle magazine and swimwear calendar. The IBMS Founders, Patrick and Elina McKinney, also own and operate a talent agency, film and production company, event production company, are developing a skincare line, are proactive in other businesses that they own and enjoy spending time in their small hometown with their two children.
