Like many Modeling Agencies, Djamee Models, started with 1 model. Djamee signed his first model Rome,This was in 2000.
In October 2003 Stanley Kaplan of Stanley Kaplan Talent New York, brought Djamee Raphael, to his office after meeting him at "Coffee Beans," on the East Village, where he was hosting and conducting a weekly open call for models.
Together they opened the Talent Agency's Modeling Division.
In 2006, Djamee Raphael, continued his partnership with Stanley Kaplan, with complete Creative Direction of the modeling Division.
In 2010 one year after the Financial Crisis, Stanley Kaplan Offices closed.
In anticipation of the move, Djamee built his first websites. One for his company and one for Stanley's Talent agency.
A year later Djamee, applied and was accepted in less than 72 hours for Djamee models And Talent, registration with Casting Networks Inc.
This morning I was delighted to read an email from Alix Amin and Rafi Gordon, Co - CEOs, Talent Systems that read:
"We are writing to let you know that Talent Systems, Casting Networks’ holding company, has acquired Spotlight, Europe’s preeminent casting software platform!
By combining the businesses, we are creating a global, cutting-edge casting ecosystem that will enable you to submit your talent to high-quality projects worldwide.

Take it as you like it. Remember, your host tolerates you as a guest on your favorite Social media platform. The only thing you own is the phone; the tablet; laptop or maybe desktop you use to log on to access the Social Media platform of you're choice. In most cases, you lose the copyright right for the content you upload on these platforms.
I said it again and again, get your own Online Real Estate, in the form of your own domain name; build your own websites; funnels or even stores; and your own Apps for your business.
Use the free resources first if you are on a tight budget.
When you start making a few sales; re invest your profit to upgrade to own your software licences and indispensable various suite of tools.
You won’t need to try to overturn an election to be kicked off these platforms. Being a "little extra," sharing videos and memes; even an opinion can get you in trouble and get you suspended. Good luck trying to get out of that predicament instantly; if at all.
Imagine if the social networks, you are trusting with your business are down and you are launching a product for which you've invested your heart, time and hard earn money?
You use stores provided on their platform; because it is free to upload your product and start selling. Major hick up; you can't even reach your followers because they are also in the dark. Then what?
You won’t get compensated if you take a loss because Facebook, or Instagram, or WhatsApp, or Messenger, was down. You agreed like I did to their terms of services. And a little know fact is that you can't sue social media.
So don't waste your time being mad.
Instead start building yours now!
You have a choice to use these platforms, but you would be foolish to rely exclusively on them to communicate your message or promote your business and build your brand.
And that’s coming from someone happily using Facebook/Instagram ads since October 2012, to grow my business.
Get your own and own it.
If you would like me to send you a list of resources you can use to get started, let me know and I’ll b e happy to send the info to you.
PS Some of you know that I have a new book coming up where I have assembled some of the best resources you will be able to use right away to take charge of building your own business and securing your brand. To learn more about Quotes For A Wealthy Living 2, go HERE

WHAT: QUOTES FOR A WEALTHY LIVING 2.
WHEN: 11 / 22 / 20
WHY: YOU DESERVE IT!
On August 20th 2020, I firmly predicted and called a Joe Biden WIN for the November Presidential Election! This was about 3 months ahead of the election.
This was not the result of analysing the results from the polls. In fact you can predict success or failure. You can predict if someone will be successful or not in a venture.
Through the years I have sharpened this skill scouting and developing the most unique models; actors; and performing artists currently represented in the industry.
When you learn how to use this technique, you will always be at peace when making business or any decision for that matter.
This TECHNIQUE is not taught in SCHOOL, COLLEGE or UNIVERSITY!
I have been authorized On November 22 2020, to pull back the curtain and reveal to you some secret techniques that were used in ancient times. Nothing is new. The knowledge often gets lost in translation.
If you always wondered how some people seem to be in sync with the events coming into their lives and others out of whack with everyday tribulations; my Book is for you. Come with an open mind or don't come at all.
Quotes For A Wealthy Living 2, will be released on November 22 2020 on #Amazon #Kindle then on #Audible In French English and Thai language. For those of you who want more I have an exclusive training for members only, that will be available on #groovesell probably the best new marketplace in the making.
If anything, enjoy the journey through personal quotes, notes and analysis. This is a few decades in the making and an invaluable gift to you. Why you? Why now? Because you deserve it.- Djamee

Back to school Apparel means two different things for parents and for their kids. The parents want their kids to start the new academic year in the right spirit; while their kids are mostly interested in showing off how pretty cute the Summer has been to them and how fresh they are from the gate(literally). This is your kids non verbal communication 101.
Thankfully StuddedSpikes by Djamee a unisex for the whole family new line of cool apparel is reaching above water.
Djamee says:"In 2009 when I launched StuddedSpikes in Manhattan New York; if someone had asked me if I knew I would be designing apparel in 2019; I would have told them no. StuddedSpikes are only hand made accessories. But today I feel different. I realize you can really be creative when it comes to tees hoodies even bag packs and totes. You can express your mood and even start a conversation in these cold streets by wearing a tee or a hoodie which reflect your mood of the moment.
Kids like to fit in but that does not mean that they want to wear the same generic shirts from the department stores. They want some originality and creativity too. You can be cool without breaking the bank wearing StuddedSpikes by Djamee. For the top quality material offered; connoisseurs will be delighted to grab the "Limited Editions," pieces they can rock day and night in or out of town.
There are new StuddedSpikes arrivals every Thursdays. On top of that, there are special designs rolled out at anytime which ads to the fun in following this brand. The main StuddedSpikes store is on TeeSpring. On Djamee's site you get a general idea of what is to come and can go back to archives of previous runway shows. Soon at least two other major platforms will carry the new designs.
" My focus is on the customers experience. You are going to wear them and it has to be the best quality possible; so that you know StuddedSpikes is a good idea for a gift of great value. Treat yourself or anyone for a special occasion or for the holidays. 100% satisfaction guaranteed is a basic standard for me. If you are not happy with my designs why should you have to keep them?
The answer to this is simple. I have you in mind when I put my designs out. I'm only happy if you are."

Most of us know about the Law of Attraction, so how come we don't know how to use it or why do we use this universal law against ourselves?
Djamee started to have challenges when he thought his life was set. You probably can relate. Most people at one point in their lives lost control or realized they did not have control to begin with. Everything they had built was now gone; sometimes in an instant. They were devastated; they did not know to whom to turn to. They felt ashamed and they would not let anyone know about their situation. May be they went from being healthy to being ill; from being in a good relationship to being alone and unhappy; from having money to losing it all; from loving their job to being laid-off...
Wouldn't you absolutely love to learn how to take back control of your existence starting today? NOW YOU CAN; by learning what Djamee discovered recently. Djamee shares his proven system on how to be happy and have everything you want in life in "How To Survive When You are Flat Broke," 4th Edition. Yes you can have whatever you desire.

I am always amazed on how much people get away with; or at least it seems for a while.
When it comes to concepts; we deal with opinions and in this case my own. Today I am sharing with you my belief about ethics; confidence and recognition in show biz.
Please keep an open mind; and I suggest you challenge me or help me redefine some of my ideas. Ideas can always be "Fine tuned." Mine are no different. We should always keep room for improvement.
Everything has been created and perfected from the beginning of time. Past present and future are human made concept that allow only for innovation.
In every generation there are innovators; not creators.
I have a strong CONFIDENCE in the statements thereof.
On "Ethics": When you are facing a moral choice realize what MORAl means and if it does not resonate with you; come closer to home and ask yourself "What would an human do in this situation."
On "Confidence:" You will need to be confident when making a decision. So take the time to think before your act; talk ; or write. You may be confident that you are right but that does not necessarily make you right. By putting yourself in the other(s) person shoes you will be able to adjust your level of confidence to what is MORALY fair.
On "Recognition:" If you want to climb the ladder of success FAST; with a strong group of supporters on your side; you will need to genuinely recognize each individual that helped you by name or their affiliation, if they are a part of huge group.
Examples of good ethics VS Bad ethics in show biz:
As a writer; music producer/beat maker; songwriter; video director; designer/Fashion Designer; Model scout /Casting Director... If you decide to use someone's work; quote them! Mention them; or acknowledge them publicly in writing and verbally as well as in the credit of your current work.
Michael Jackson R.I.P, always credited James Brown R.I.P, but omited to credit Manu Dibango for a sample he used from Soul Makossa, to write Wanna Be Startin Something; Prince, credited Jimmi Hendrix for his early style; Madonna RECOGNIZED the stars from Hollywood's Metro Goldwyn Mayer movie Studios; Lady Gaga, takes good care of her "Little Monsters" and Justin BIeber always RECOGNIZED his fans. From the early days on Youtube up to now 5 years later. Today, Justin Bieber is the stars with the most views on Youtube...
Youtube always credit the original owner of a copyrighted work in their content by redirecting a song cover to a merchant store where audience can purchase or at least RECOGNIZE the original even if it consists of only 30 seconds of original content.
Nicki Minaj, made history earlier this year by performing and rapping "Stupid Hoe" in a video by Hype Williams, using archetypes from some of the most respected photographers such as Jean Paul Goude and living legends such as Grace Jones in what turned out to be one of the most disparaging song to associate glamourous iconic images to diss Nicki's rap rival in that case the evident target was Lil Kim. The "Queen Bee," ended up winning by default because of Nicki Minaj's faux pas. As it turned out the lyrics were actually good but the video was totally inappropriate for such a song.
In comparison Madonna, used her mega hit of the early 90's VOGUE, to RECOGNIZE all the major Hollywood stars before her by name while edifying their style in imagery in her Vogue's video. She scored an everlasting result by doing so and positioned herself as an icon as well. She brought on her side music and movie fans that may otherwise not have embraced her.
So when as an artist you decide to use someone else style or music or ideas you are well advised to credit/recognize them by name in a reverent way. The downfall for not doing so is not worth trying doing without.
Click on Flyer by Chris Broady
In the video above you have here the perfect example of RECOGNITION. Although the POP UPs were edited by VH1, the only way producition could find these information is because camp Madonna; Label and Management had properly archived and filed these information with detailed credit including the names location and dates.
I was surprise recently when Chris at Broady Designs credited me with coming up with an INNOVATION when I decided to ask him to use specific imagery from THE MATRIX to change Neo's character choice of 2 pills to pick from in "Morpheus," hands into a choice of red or blue mic on each of his hands; when I ordered a flyer to help promote a new open mic I am co producing with Rick Davy & DJ Stiletto in Brooklyn. But it showed "Show Business" savvy and ethics; as I know I did not request him to mention it.
When actors or singers are about to receive an award; their emotion can be overwhelming. That's why they learn to remember important facts that have to do with credit and recognition so that they can recognize those not on the spotlight sincerely and on cue during an interview or on stage performing or recieving awards.
