"I wouldn't consider myself 'a model' but only that 'I model'. I've had a lot of fun shooting with various photogs and can hopefully continue to do so through this site. I don't take life very seriously (and by life I don't mean work), I find the good in everything and like to have a good time no matter what I'm doing."

She has the sweetest personality.  She's 17 yrs. old.  She has the most beautiful complexion and expressive face.  I had a wonderful shoot with her and hope to work with her again soon. smile  She was on "the list".

Indeed, the Great Lakes Rule! (sorry couldn't resist a bit of regional chauvinism)

My first 'from the list' shoot and submission for the week of 21 Jan 2008, the lovely Aleis from Columbus, Ohio. Hair and makeup by the lovely Athena Lenzie.

Aleis was my top pick and has shown herself to be a good communicator, reliable and confident. Those traits coupled with her beauty and perfect complexion make her a force to reckon with.

This is so cool, but Tiana is such a great easy going model with a professional attitude.  Thanks to everyone who voted for her, and all those, both models and photographers, who participated by submitting their images here each week.

Cheers,
Grant.

what a wonderful field of new models, to be a part of such an inspirational program and to be involved with the exceptional artist that have taken the time to work with a relatively new model for this just blows my mind.

would it be easier for everybody if this was every month instead of every week? that would give more people the chance to find a new model and prepare

well Katrina had worked with a coveted photographer, but that was before he started doing the plastic swirly thing that they line up for, some of her images were self pics and I think she qualifies, if not i do apologise, regardless she was great to work with and i cant wait to work with her again

That's the beauty of this thread.  These are new models looking for someone to give them a helping hand and a good start.  It's a tribute to the photographers who have volunteered here to be able to take these new models, and then post some kick ass images that make you wonder if these models really are new.  That to me embodies the spirit of Craig's efforts.
