About Me

Don T. Gray photography, art and design provides unique and creative concepts via 13 years experience in photography.  I took a step back to utilize all my gifts as a Photographer. After doing several Industrial Manuals, Commercial,  Real Estate and Fine Art Performances I have decided to open the doors to this genre again. I am still an Artist. So my work has been featured in several galleries on-line and in the Cleveland, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio and Boston, Mass. Gallery Districts. I come to MM to scout new subjects for my portfolio and Artistic Compositions.

Some Tips for Models

One way to get photos without paying money is to arrange a TFP or TFCD. TFP (time for prints) and TFCD (time for CD) are a free exchange of services: the model gives his/her time and the photographer provides them with images from the shoot. No money is involved, although a model release form may need to be signed
However, if you want to guarantee top quality, there is nothing wrong with paying a photographer. This ensures that you get exactly the types of images you want. Money is a great motivator to get things done in a timely fashion (not to say that doing TFP/TFCD produces less than stellar work but if you are paying for the services, there is less of a chance of a mishap occurring where you don't receive your images or wait forever to receive them). Many photographers put paying gigs as priority over free shoots.
                            DTG -  PAID SHOOT ARE PRIORITY
When putting your images in your portfolio, be sure to only include your best images. They each must have the "WOW" factor. If you have any doubt about an image, do not include it. Put the best images on the right side of the book (if you choose to put images on both sides of each page). The eye is naturally drawn to the right side when looking at a portfolio layout so you'll want those images to be seen immediately by whoever is looking at it.
                            DTG -  I compose this book for $55.00
Include both black and white as well as color photos. Don't include too many images in your portfolio. A safe number to stick to is between 10-15...20 max if you have done a lot of work.
                            DTG -  A versatile hairstyle or bringing a stylist with you will help.
Agency represented models usually have their portfolios completely managed by the agency so there is less to deal with on that end. Freelance models act as their own agents so it is your responsibility to maintain and update your portfolio.
                            DTG -  The Portfolio is an INVESTMENT into your career…if you’re serious
If you need to, freelance models specializing in more than one type of modeling category can put together a separate portfolio for each and show them to clients accordingly.
While you should show diversity in your looks and poses, don't go overboard. If you have too many different and wild images that don't relate to the type of modeling you do, you can confuse of overwhelm a client.
                          DTG -  REMEMBER – Model Management find PAID WORK for YOU!! They don’t PIMP you around with promises of free salon care and drinks at a bar.
