Allure Modeling Studios
FEMALE photographer named Krista. I want models to feel comfortable in every situation.
I WILL ASK YOU TO CALL ME 2 HOURS BEFORE THE SHOOT, IF YOU DON'T CALL, NO SHOOT. IF YOUR MORE THAN 30 MINUTES LATE TO THE SHOOT, NO SHOOT! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
Schedule YOUR Photo Shoot Today!!!
Allure Modeling Studio is safe, secure and in a professional building. It's available for you. Staff consists of a FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER and one male assistant. Allure will go on location of your choice within reason. Inside and outside shoots are available. Hours: 9am until 9pm, 7 days a week.
Allure takes Cash, Paypal, Credit and Debit cards. Upon occasion, you can trade towards the shoot fee such as: Sexy type clothing, lingerie, dancer outfits, costumes, gothic clothes, high heels / boots, unusual clothing, vintage clothes, elegant outfits, items from stores like Hot Topic, Wet Seal, Cirilla’s, and Victoria's Secret. Allure will take props that can be used for Photo Shoots. Tell us what you have to trade and we'll tell you if we can use it. We'll work with you on trades!!!
If you're concerned about your safety, as many models are, you can send a message to my top 10 friends, as they've all done shoots at my studio. Plus I have posted my studio location online so you can see and tell someone where you will be, and you can call them to check in during the shoot if you want. We are also listed on many exclusive modeling and photography websites.
Allure prefers NOT to shoot your average hang on your living room wall types of pictures. We like to be more artistic, creative, alternative, erotic, gothic, sensual, and thought provoking in our shoots. We are open to any and all ideas and will photograph whatever the model feels comfortable doing. We're only limited by the models imagination.
Allure no longer allows model to bring escorts along with them to the shoots except under rare circumstances. We have had too many models tell us afterwards when the photos did not turn out great that their boyfriend / husband / friend / escort, made them nervous, tense, more shy, uncomfortable, afraid to wear certain outfits they wanted to wear, afraid to pose certain ways, etc. Your friend / escort can bring you to the studio, come in and check it all out, but then has to leave before we start shooting. Anyone under the age of 18 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult!
Allure Modeling is a professional business and it is very important that the model and photographer both feel safe and be relaxed and comfortable while doing a shoot in order for the photos to turn out looking great.
Who I'd like work with:
People who aren't afraid to show their inner beauty. Think "BIG" about your average everyday "soccer mom" turning on her groove and imagination from glamour, edgy, erotic, sexy and grunge. You're the person that has the dreams and illusions of what YOU want. Shouldn't you get what you want out of a photo shoot?
Dos and Don'ts for Posing-
I found this and thought it would be so help others! (don't remember where I got it from)
DO: Research the Photographer!
DO: Tell others where you're going!
DO: Bring your own clothing and props!
DO: Listen to the photograper about hair and makeup, they know how the lighting works!
DON'T: Get presurred in nudes if you don't want to. Know your personal limits!
DO: Use magazines for inspiration when learning to pose.
DO: Have a cell phone with you, but have it on MUTE! NO TEXTING, shows poor taste!
DO: Use your own poses, it shows originality.
DO: Refer to the right kind of publications that reflect the type of modeling you do (fashion magazines for fashion/runway poses: Elle, W, Glamour, Vogue. Catalogs for commercial/print poses: Macy's, Nordstroms, Target, JC Penny's. Teen publications: Teen Vogue, Limited Too, Teen People).
DON'T: Feel like you need to master every single pose you've ever seen.
DO: Practice posing in front of a mirror to be comfortable with your body and learn what feels natural.
DON'T: Think that practicing in front of a mirror is lame, amateurish or unnecessary. Doing this simple exercise can help you greatly.
DO: Learn how to experiment. Even if you think the pose won't look good, try it out anyway and find out for yourself.
DON'T: Be rigid and uncomfortable--it will show on camera.
DO: Learn how to be completely at home in front of the camera.
DON'T: Fake it (unless you're REALLY good).
DO: Practice facial expressions in front of the mirror in addition to posing your body.
DON'T: Only learn the Victoria's Secret pout--there is more to modeling than that tired old expression.
DO: Pay attention to your hands, fingers, feet and toes when posing. Doing weird stuff with them can ruin an otherwise great pose.
DON'T: Tilt your head too much to the side (it can make you look like your neck is broken or catch an unpleasant "up your nose" shot).
DO: Learn how to pose in a studio as well as outdoors.
DON'T: Only learn how to pose standing up. It is important to know how to pose while sitting down, crouching, runnning, jumping, walking, lying down, etc.
DO: Practice posing with another model or looking at magazines to get inspiration for how to interact with one or more models.
DON'T: Assume you will never be asked to model with another person.
DO: Learn how to interact and pose with a model of the opposite sex.
DON'T: Go overboard with posing or feel you need to do a completely different pose every time the camera takes a picture. Many times simple changes to existing poses is more than enough.
DO: Learn how to extend your neck when appropriate to prevent it from looking short and stumpy. Also learn how to create nice lines using your arms and legs.
DON'T: Do poses that make you look short, stubby, or appear that you're missing limbs. Be aware of your appendages when you do a pose that involves being seated or call for you to crouch.
DO: Work with your photographer to create the appropriate poses for each modeling gig.
DON'T: Expect the photographer to tell you how to pose or direct you for every single shot. It is up to you to create that flow. The photographer will assist you when needed but don't expect them to show you how to do your job.
DO: Learn how to do and hold difficult poses. With practice you'll be able to pose in an unnatural way but make it come across as natural in front of the camera.
DON'T: Do stupid Myspace poses or poses that you'd do if you and your friends were clowning around with a camera. If you're going to be a model then you'll have to pose like one (but that doesn't mean you can't have fun).
DO: Have fun with your poses. Don't be afraid to laugh, smile, or act goofy (within reason and when appropriate) in front of the camera.
DON'T: Think you have it all figured out. When it comes to posing, chances are you're going to have to practice.
