Mayhem # 5058
I am (as you can tell from my portfolio and tear sheets) a fashion photographer who specializes in magazine fashion editorial, advertising, catalog and swimsuit photography.
This time of year in Miami the agencies are interviewing new faces and setting up their model boards for the upcoming fashion season (November through April). When available I charge $495 for a fashion test, and for a limited time this includes professional hair and makeup as well as the use of a studio.
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, email@example.com. If you have any questions, I can be reached almost any time in South Beach at 305 534-9322.
I am member of Canon Professional Services and have been selected as a sponsored photographer for Paul C. Buff Companies (White Lightning, Alien Bees, Zeus and now, Einstein).
It is my good fortune to work with Jude Andam, Melissa Rachelle, Jane Pittman, Khadine, Leilani Wallace, Obi Reyes, Nicole Florio, Jonathan Rebolledo, Kristin Mirabelle (Tears for Fears), Phoenix of Face Forward, and Michelle Martin as stylists and makeup artists.
