My desire is to create beautiful images of beautiful women. Images we can both be proud of.
I currently charge $150 for a 2 hour shoot.
I am willing to do a TFCD if I see a model that would enhance my portfolio.
(From the wisdom of Thomas Dodd)
We photographers have excellent memories. We remember the name of every model who cancelled a shoot because their grandmother/dog/goldfish died.. We REALLY remember the ones who never called or never showed (which is the very definition of irony).. The ones who sent us their rates when all they had was a portfolio full of cell phone pics, the ones who didn't thank (or even acknowledge) us when we sent them edits, the ones who never put our edits in their portfolios and the ones who showed up thirty pounds heavier and 10 years older than their pictures... Invariably when photographers get together, it seems like these are the kind of model stories that get exchanged...
Now if we could only recall the many excellent models we have worked with with the same clarity and attention to detail!
The models who researched their "character" on the net and showed up with an arsenal of poses memorized and ready to go, the ones who did their own hair and makeup without a complaint, the ones who crawled on dirty floors and muddy grounds to get a shot that we never edited! The models who try whatever hare-brained idea pops into your head without a moment's hesitation. The ones who pose nude in mosquito-infested abandoned buildings, etc etc.. THESE are the models we should recall every minute detail about and talk about fondly - that first lot should be relegated to the memory scrapheap!
So to all you models out there who belong in that second paragraph - THANK YOU for all that you do - although we may not often say it, we appreciate it more than words can ever adequately convey!
The model is the single most important component of the image and the success or failure of that image is almost 90% how people respond to the model. All of the photographic/artistic wizardry in the world won't make a dull model interesting and yet a technically simple image with the right model can speak volumes...
