Great tearsheets for MM’s Dan Gregory
Dan Gregory’s work has been featured on Maxim.com, Femme Exposure Magazine, GlamModelz Magazine and many other publications. When asked how he feels about his success in the industry, he stated: “I feel honored to be where I’m at right now, especially being published. It is a lot of hard work in this industry, you have to be patient and success does not happen overnight. I want to thank everyone who has supported me.” We also asked him if he has a few words of advice for photographers who would like to get published and he replied with the following: “The most direct way is to contact the editor of a magazine. Just emailing different publications may not give you a fast or direct response you may be looking for. Tell the editor why they should include your shots in their publication. Keep in touch with the editors! You never know when an editor is going to need a cover shot or model feature.”
Model Lily Cole breaks stereotypes
In the past, there have been several models that have broken the modeling stereotypes. Lily Cole is one of those models. According to this Now Magazine article, Lily’s nude photos for Playboy France came out as soon as she started university. Most people, when they think of Playboy models, they don’t think “university students” nor “smart women,” but Lily, just like many other models, proves that she has beauty and brains. She also stated that she will not judge anyone for posing nude. Posing nude is a personal choice for models and therefore it is up to the model if she would like to do that and is comfortable with it. There are some outstandingly beautiful tastefully-done nude photos out there.

According to this article, Tanya Martin is making it happen. At 28 years old, this busy, full-time working mom still finds the time to model and play basketball on the college team. Yes, in addition to holding a full-time job, she is also a college student. What’s even more amazing is that she works as a model for Nike’s sports fashion gear.
