Welcome to my Model Mayhem Web Site:
I am both an artist and photographer.  My work emcompasses a broad range, including: glamour, bodypainting, editorial, travel, nature, and architectural images.  The reason for signing with Model Mayhemc is to improve my networking with models who are literally my canvases.

Examples of my work have been published in a number of publications.  I have traveled to over 65 countries and territories on 6 continents in order to create images that have real impact. 

Latest Project:
I am completing a book on bodypainting.  My photographic web sites showcase both my work as a painter and as an accomplished photographer.  Just scroll down to click on my numerous links.

Paid Work/Hiring Flick Photographic:
Please don't hesitate to contact me for a price list for paid assignments.  I will provide you or your company with quality work, delivered on time, and to your specifications.  As a client you will be pleased with the results.  Flick Photographic has a proven track record of providing images that either make you money, effectively reach your market, capture the right moment, or get you the opportunity you're seeking. 

Limited TFCD with Models:
I am currently only accepting 1-2 test shoots (TFPs or TFCDs) per month.  I am selective.  I receive many more requests for TFCD than I could ever provide. So I must balance TFCD with paid assignments.  But it's either feast or famine, so don't let my perceived work load discourage you from asking.  Although infrequent these days, I do enjoy working with models who are enthusiastic newcomers and who may have that certain aura, attitude, or unique look that makes a dramatic image.  Model collaborative work requests must be related to my photographic resume of work, or my book on bodypainting.  To contact me, e-mail through MM, or better still, through my industry web site at < http://carlflick.com/contact >. Including both a direct e-mail address and contact phone number (with best time to call) demonstrates both your professionalism and your ability to be complete in your response. Continue reading for more information about "pre-shoot phone contact".  In my case, this step is required with all models, and reading below will explain exactly why.

Contact and Introductions:
For models who contact me, I must converse directly with you prior to any shoot.  A real conversation allows us to: 1) fully discuss a work assignment's parameters; 2) freely interact prior to meeting; 3) demonstrate professionalism to each other; 4) build necessary trust; 5) assess your commitment to a pre-set appointment; and 6) ensure that all of your questions have been answered.  Further, conversing effectively allows me to weed out all unreliable "no-shows".  Please read more on this particular subject below.  It should be a good fit for both of us.  Since the first humans developed language, the 'art of conversation' has always been the best way to determine suitability.  When personalities click, the shoot is a lot of fun.  For those who are just starting out, please know that professionalism, courtesy, and commitment are truly the keys to success in this industry.

A Valuable Message About Networking:
Never forget the power of networking.  So important.  By actually talking with photographers, make-up artists, stylists, and other models, you are sowing the seeds for more jobs in the future.  The biggest mistake new or unprofessional models make is ignoring inquiries.  You are your own ambassador and your actions speak loudly.  Making lasting impressions is part of the craft of establishing working relationships and building alliances that result in repeat work assignments.  To ignore this is to limit requests for future work. Taking the initiative to call make-up artists, stylists, and photographers is viewed as a positive "networking habit".  The rule to follow: Networking will make you more money.  Waiting for photographers to contact you just means wasted time with little income.  Remember that you are in competition with other models.  So take the initiative, make the call, and get that paid assignment. 

Paid Assignments for Models:
They come regularly.  Who do I contact when a client hires me? In many instances I call those reliable individuals who I've worked with before.  As a long term strategy for 'getting those paid assignments', many have established their introductory working connection through a TFCD shoot.  I hire professional models (on behalf of a paying client) with whom I have first established a working relationship. This is also my way of further rewarding those who began with TFCD shooting. In other words, they believed that the quality of my work had its own value.  Networking is everything. 

Where I Shoot and Body Paint:
I photograph in locations all over South Florida, including Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, extending north to Stuart and Ft. Pierce, and also throughout the Tampa Bay area, where I have a growing client list.  Although I am based in West Palm Beach, I have set up a satellite studio in Ft. Pierce (St. Lucie County).  My satellite studio comes complete with several acres of woodlands, meadows, and an intracoastal waterway beach, all of which make picturesque photographic sets for shooting.  I love nature and it figures prominently in my work.  My Ft. Pierce location has staged me for an excellent opportunity to grow my business in the Port St. Lucie market.

Conversing in Spanish:
Yo hablo un poco Espanol.  Yo aprendo Espanol por quatro anos in la escuela y hace muchas viajes a los paises de hispanicos.
Conversing in German:
Ich kann ein bischen Deutsch sprechen.  Ich wohnte in Deutschland.  Ich war ein Student.



An Industry Secret Revealed
I never have any problems with "no show models".  They are not part of my world.  My fellow professional photographers ask how can that be?  The answer is easy to explain.  When a prospective model fails to provide a contact phone number, and does not strongly want to hold a pre-shoot phone conversation with its many typical questions and answers exchanged, I already know that this particular individual has no intention of coming to any planned shoot.  I find this true 100 percent of the time.  No need to waste energy. 

A Reliable Model's Good Habits Reveal Themselves
On the other hand, after an initial e-mail exchange, all reliable models are quick to arrange and carry out a pre-shoot conversation.  This is a natural inclination since talking and sharing information builds necessary trust prior to working together.  I receive a fair amount of requests for photographic TFCDs.  Unfortunately, I cannot honor most of them because I work for a living.  Paying clients are my lifeblood.  But for the unique instances when I do carry out a TFCD arrangement, my policy of holding a pre-shoot phone conversation weeds out unreliable people for me. I am grateful for this easy determinant of good character, because it works wonderfully.  As a result, I collaborate with some amazing models, stylists, make-up artists, and set designers.  If you are a model that has started communicating with me via e-mail, the next professional step is to call and directly explore the potential for shooting (while getting lots of questions answered for both of us), or provide a contact number so that I may call.
