2014 - It is hard to believe that it has been seven year since I first logged onto Model Mayhem. I have really had the honor to work with a lot of really nice models, make up artists and other photographers here. I have found that over the past several years the artistic quality of a lot of the postings has really started to suffer. There have been several beautiful models, new models who traded work for pics with other photographers who I think got the short end of the stick. I have grown tired of the "meat market" and scantily clad selfies taken in a mirror crowd. MM should not be a hook up site or anything else like that. We should as a community grown. A camera, some eBay lights and a white sheet background does not make you a photographer! Some lingerie and the self confidence to post a pic of yourself in mirror does not make you a model. You need to be technically good at both. For the time being I have decided not to shoot any models and will be moving in another direction. I will be available at no charge to newbie models to help critique their portfolios. Send me a message and I will be more than happy to speak to you about how technically things look. Remember you have about 10 photos to capture someones eye. While you can be stunning a poorly executed photograph series can kill things for you and that is just not fair. This is my way to give something back to the community.
