About Me

As a model You face challenges day in and day out, but one of the toughest facets of the job is posing and relaxing in front of a stranger taking Your photos..   There is nothing more awkward than a clueless model.  It’s a lot of pressure, but great images can be captured by following a few of these “ground rules.”Contact  a photographer who has some time to devote to you, the model. A TFCD (Trade for CD) shoot will get You some quality time and not cost You anything but Your time and You get free digital photos (Great for beginner models that don't want to spend a fortune)

ALWAYS keep your word and be on time. A photographer can recommend You to a lot of clients but if You are UN-reliable its likely You will loose those opportunities.

Pull Poses & Mood

Pull inspirational poses (photos)  emulate those poses like  in magazine such as fit, oxygen , Ujena swimwear (Who I work with) . You heard the term practice makes perfect? Get a friend and try and copy poses that make YOU look great. Be a great actress.

I tell this to models constantly and they still want to shoot at high noon. These shots are almost always impossible to edit. Cloudy days, right after a rain shower are great. I have even shot in the rain for those daring models!

Follow The Nose

All amateur models instantly feel the need to keep their eyes to the camera, but I prefer the opposite.

Bounce The Shoulders

Shoulders are often overlooked, but they play a crucial role in framing the face of a model. Popping a shoulder up and forward can make all the difference, especially in beauty work. Just raising one shoulder higher than another will add dimension and strength to the image.

Open The Mouth

It can set a completely different mood and photograph With the mouth slightly open, the jawline is elongated and gives a subtle intimate invite to the viewer.

Ballet feet

The model should relax their hands as if they were in a ballet, spreading the fingers lightly and stand on tiptoes for any sort of fitness/swimwear shoot to show great leg tone. I tell My models if it's hard to do its probably going to make them look great.
