Casting for:


PHotogs. I am setting up a Mary Kay Face Party. What this means is that I have challenged myself to get 100 ladies to do a make-over with Mary Kay Products in 100 days or less. As part of this I am creating a Mary Kay Face Book for my personal use and would love to share this event with a photographer that wants some great head shots. Looking for: Someone who is willing to take before and after shots and than put them on CD same day. I have a computer or you can bring your own. I will supply the CDS, all you need to do is shoot and than download. This is a great way to expand your port and get your name out. I have about 7 Mayhem Models who will be attending. Please let me know if you are interested!! Just bring your camera and have fun. You may get some other great shots too. I would also like to have a CD at the end with all the photos on it. The date is December 28th 2:30 till we shut down :-)

I've done this type of thing three times previously. I also owned a lab and helped two or three other photographers out of problems they were having doing similar shoots for clients.

In all instances, the "before" photos looked better than the "afters". To the eye, the "models" looked much better "after".

What the eye sees and what the camera sees, can be two different things. Makeup for a photo shoot and makeup for a prom, daily use, or other event is totally different.

The ingredients in the products used makes all the difference. Often the best cosmetics for every-day use, produces the worst photos.

The ingredients in the makeup will determine the best type of lighting, camera type, and post processing methods to use.

Mary Kay, Lancombe, and Estee Lauder are notorious for making people look "pasty white" like a cross between the Pillsbury dough boy and the Michelin man in photos. This is why MUA's who usually do makeup for photo shoots, generally don't use these brands much.

I would suggest you do tests first because an inexperienced photographer or inexperienced photographic MUA are likely to produce results that are exactly opposite what you might be hoping for. It's very hard to sell something to someone when the photos ares such that they looked better in the "befores" than the "afters".

Trust me...test first!
