About me
Perfect beauty is perfect boredom -- lacking flaws, beauty can not be appreciated. A cool drink of water is nothing without a hot or arid day to emphasize how wonderful its' difference is.

Why you can't have all of the images immediately after the shoot:
Inexperienced models are often no good at spotting a mediocre photographer: Aspiring models may believe that it is really attractive to receive a large number of images immediately after the shoot. Think again! Only the very inexperienced or the extremely naïve assume that it is a seductive proposal by default. In a portfolio, you want quality, not quantity. This can play into the hands of photogr...aphers, who produce quantity rather than quality. Lack of expertise is compensated for with the assumption that the more photos you take, the higher your chances are that a good one happens by accident.

It is not in your interest to receive a copy of every photograph taken. The photographer should take the time to edit the photos and only give you a selection of the best. You do not have the expertise to select the right images from a large collection.

Digital or print, a good photograph requires work after it has been taken - and I do not mean digital trickery on a mediocre picture. If you are presented with a CD immediately after the shoot, the photographer has not had the time to do any post-production work on the images (or could not be bothered or did not know how to).

Typical post-production work would include adjustments to colour and contrast, removing specs of dust, which may be visible, and sizing the photographs properly and converting them to the correct colour space for the intended use (usually the Internet).

No self-respecting photographer wants to release photos that are anything but very good. From a large number of photographs taken during a shoot, only a few will meet the demanding criteria a photographer should impose on himself. Many photos from a shoot are just not good enough for a variety of reasons - technically, compositionally, pose-wise.

I know of people who think that just because a photograph is in focus and correctly exposed, it is a good photograph. Bless 'em.

If you are offered a copy of everything, you are working with a photographer who does not take (or does not know how to take) pride in their work. Not a good idea!

What Previous Models Have to Say (References):

"I had the wonderful opportunity of shooting with Odin recently. He immediately knew how to make me feel perfectly comfortable. He gave great direction toward what look he wanted to capture, what poses, what angle of the face, all that detail that would normally escape an amateur. And man, does he have some fantastic ideas. We shared such an awesome, demented sense of humor, I felt like we had known each other for years. He was courteous, gentlemanly, and he treated me to lunch afterward."
-Goddess Damiana, MM#840564

"Odin is an amazing photographer to work with. Every time I work with him it is not only productive but a helluva lot of fun. Work with him if you know what's good for you!"
-Kess M, MM#609428
