I would like to mentor from Seattle, Wa!!!

I have been a full time traveling model foe 2 years now, and I also coordinate group shoots in the Seattle area with 10-15 models and 10-15 photographers for portfolio development and networking (Femme Photo LTD is the name of my company) I have sat down at starbuxes with models and shown them how to use mm to safely book gigs, find their niche etc. I would love to be available on this list to be a mentor for more models to get pointers!!!

It said to post in this thread for this, if I'm not mistaken. I'd really like a mentor or maybe a few to review my portfolio for me and tell me what they think (so far). If there are any fetish and/or erotic models interested, also please check out my Nude Work profile via the link on this one and critique it as well? Thank you ^-^

It's really sad that all these people want to be mentors and be mentored and no one is responding to them. I've been accepted but I wasnt put on the list (almost 2 years ago)

However, I've started a non-profit training agency for aspiring models. Those of you who wish to mentor and be mentored can send a mesage to us at www.facebook.com/roguemodels

If I qualify, I would love to be a Model Mentor in Oregon. Looks like four different mentors don't exist anymore for our state (their links do not work) so Oregon may need some help!

Looking forward to hearing back!

Hello,

I would also like to volunteer as a mentor.
I see that Vancouver only has 3 active ones now. (one has moved to Victoria, and another has been deleted)

Please have a look at my port, and especially the quoted references on my profile page.

I have a Provincial Instructors Diploma, so teaching comes easily for me as the various references indicate.

Thank you!

Doesn't seem very active...
I posted a month ago, then contacted Craig S replacement a week ago.
Still yet to hear anything.

MODELS, do you use this resource?
Are many of you aware of it?
(Obviously if you read this thread you must be...   smile  )

If people are still using this list, I'd be happy to be a mentor, though I might be moving away from the Boston area in the fall. My location is likely to change at the end of this year.

By "close" you mean do away with the model mentor program entirely?  That would be rather sad. 

IMO, much of the problem has been with the extremely slow turnaround time of getting models added to the list/sent the banner for their profiles, and getting the list updated.  I remember it took months when I originally applied to get a response and get sent the coding for the banner, and I don't believe I was ever actually added to the list for Washington.  Also, very slow response times within this thread probably deter new models from even trying to use it. 

If someone is needed to update the lists in this thread, and answer questions regarding Model Mentors/stay on top of answering the posts here, I'd be happy to volunteer.

If someone, and hopefully someone fantastic like you, wishes to create a new thread in order to continue this community based program, that would be great.

There's no sense in keeping this thread open as the OP is no longer here.

I would be very pleased to see you start a new one and continue this. If you need to, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks Melissa!

Hey Dean,

What is involved in running this program?
I will step forward to SHARE in the load, if others do so also.

Hi, Robert,

This list (which is currently being reconstructed) if for mentoring help for models.  You might want to repost your request in the 2nd List (http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=812237) which is for photographers.

Hi Dean,

The new list is actually done! I'm making some final adjustments to the formatting, but it should be posted for sure within the next week.

Thanks for your concern, and for volunteering to help!  smile

It would be nice if it could be stickied   (wow, that sounds kinda crass) tongue

(and maybe locked, now that the replacement is active?)
