I'm also looking to break from the norm. Checkout Mosh's page here on Model Mayhem http://www.modelmayhem.com/219654. Without a doubt she's one of the best!

Doing an image search on Google, Pintrest, or Yahoo will yield ideas.

www.zivity.com is another place to source ideas and inspiration.

Have fun and best of fortune to you.

Hi Becky.  Welcome to MM.  I like your portrait a lot but I have a question.  With your great red hair, why so many in black and white?  Use that red hair to promote yourself!

Good luck !

Hi Beckii. I just took a look at your portfolio, and yes, it is rather limited and mostly B&W. That still would not prevent me from contacting you for a shoot. I do notice you have some major puffiness under your eyes. that is a very simple retouch in Photoshop, and you should find someone to fix that. When I shoot a model FTP, I feel strongly that as I am trading my skills as a photographer for her appearance and talent as a model, I need to give her the very best pictures I can give her. To that end, I spend many hours editing her pics: i shoot enough to discard a third or more, and focus on the best pics of the shoot; then I run those pics through Photoshop. I retouch areas like circles beneath the eyes, blemishes on the face, skin issues, etc; these are all very simple fixes in the latest editions of Photoshop or Lightroom. I also give the model several versions of each print: I play with tome, texture and color and save several with various effects.

When you say you want to be an "alternative model," I assume you mean tats, piercings, hair styles. I work with models in that realm a lot. The most important trait you bring to a shoot, beyond tats, piercings, or style (all of which I appreciate) is the ability to model; to know how you look best, and to give energy at each shoot. Just a little experience I can share with you.

I look forward to seeing pics from the new shoot.
