I am a fashion photographer who does magazine editorial, advertising, catalog and swimsuit photography. This time of year the agencies are interviewing and arranging for testing for their new faces and setting up their model boards for the next upcoming fashion season (November through April). When available I charge $495 for a fashion test, please inquire about hair, makeup and styling. If I am unable to work with you it is almost certainly because of prior obligations, and I will be happy to suggest other qualified photographers in the area.
For those considering the business of professional modeling, you might want to review the articles I have written for magazines about modeling, agents, agencies, and getting started. They have recently been published in the Model Mayhem Educational Library, and are used by some agencies to help new faces and parents understand a little more about the business:
1) Agents and Agent Responsibilities
2) Editorial Modeling Part 1
3) Editorial Modeling Part 2
4) An introduction to Commercial Modeling
5) How Editorial and Commercial Agencies Work
6) Getting Started and Picking the Right Agent
7) The Standard Modeling Agency Contract
8) The Importance of Tear Sheets
For those interested in my background and history as a fashion photographer, you can now read the interview
which Model Mayhem has put together on my behalf. I consider it an honor to be selected by Model Mayhem for this interview.
If you wish to contact me, it is more convenient for me if you do so through my commercial website
or directly through my regular email, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, I can be reached almost any time in South Beach at 305 534-9322.
