FLAWLESS UNPERFECTION

I was looking on Los Angelas craigslist and a few days ago I saw an add for female models. The minimum height was 6"0 -6"5.
I think the weight was like 140 I'll post a link if it's still there.

Are there a lot of 6 foot tall models floating around? just curious.

Yes there are plenty.
One of my favorite models that I ever shot with, Engel Schrei is over 6'.

It all depends on what you're looking for.
Fashion people always want tall models.
I am not a fashion photographer, but I like long legs.
Once I put a notice on here that that was what I was looking for, and I got a newbie named Engel replied saying, "I've got skyscraper legs!"
That's all it took - I knew I wanted to shoot with her.
I'm guessing Craigslist is the same - that photographer wants a tall model - if that's not you, no point worrying about it.

You're so tall. tongue





They're few but they're definitely out there. I met a gorgeous 6'2" girl this one time; Too bad she was completely against modeling and everything fashion industry related. sad
