FRIEND REQUESTS I don't want to appear rude, but, if you send me a friend request I am more than happy to add you IF you take the time to to look at my images and make a comment, short or long on some of my work.. OR, if you add me to a list. YOU CAN TAG ME only with a message to let me know your interest in working with me as well as leave a comment or three on any of the images in my portfolio or about any of my work. .
I TRUST EVERYONE TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
ATTENTION RETOUCHER'S from anywhere in the world, including Australia. DO NOT send me friend requests. I will DENY you. I mean no offence, but I do any retouching that needs to be done myself. I am very proficient at it as an art form, but use it sparingly. THANK YOU for your understanding.
PASSION - SPIRIT - ENTHUSIASM - FACIAL EXPRESSION - A DANCING BODY - MOOD - EMOTION - AN ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT - DEDICATION - PRIDE IN YOUR APPEARANCE - JOY IN WHAT YOU DO. If you have these attributes you will be at your creative best .
My energy as your photographer is to bring out your hidden you, or even to extend further the "hidden you". Working together we can produce a never seen before REAL YOU, bringing out the many sides of your inner and outer personality. Together we can bring out your character, your emotions, your hidden inner being that really reveals the person you really are, as well as your outer beauty and passions.
How many times have you been able to get your photographer any business from your being paid to work with them? How much do you recommend them? How do they/we recuperate their/our expenditure. You say no to the photographer selling any of your images! So, you do not even allow your photographer to recoup any monies he has invested in you the model, and, in the setting up of the shoot expenses. Then there is the wear and tear of the photographer's equipment and the time taken to prepare your shoot, and then, to actually do the shoot and prepare your photographs professionally after you have gone home with money in your pocket and any other remuneration decided between you, like maybe some brand new clothing you photographer has paid for.. The hiring of a make-up artist and hairdresser, if that is what you ask for. We are only there to shoot your sequence of images, then pay you in numerous ways and the poor old photographer can't even recoup any of their expenses! REALLY!, REALLY!.
How about photographers taking and making images of and for YOU a two way street.. How do you not see that this is a fair trading practice.
When I have a client ask me to shoot and use a model. I get paid for that, included in my fee I allowed a fee for the model I used in the shoot.. I then pay the model. We both receive remuneration for the work and effort we put in..
When we offer a "model" a paid shoot, why is it wrong to allow your photographer to receive remuneration also? To recoup his/her losses?
Nude modelling as simply a part of the overall model genres a photographer shoots. If you are really unsure about shooting with photographers, either contact them to ask for references, or, get off the sites you are on showing yourself as a model, it's that simple!. If you are only there to boast, then you really are, as a general rule, going to be classed as that "Primadonna" type! This sends out a clear message that you have no intention of shooting with anyone, but, you think you look good so your friends, peers, will believe you really are a model. Surely that's not true, is it??? It is easy to tell if your friends are taking snaps of you, or, you are taking selfies on a timer with your phone that you are putting on your profile. This may fool your friends you are a model, but seriously if you really want great images to put up, then honor your commitment and get with some of the photographers who answer your profile notes. When you put up images it is best to put up great images, clear images, and not just 1, or 2, or 3. Upload at least 10 that are quality and show us your talent, ability. and genuineness. Put up an image or two in the styles you will pose for. Do not upload poor quality ones. You have "GOT TO LOOK YOUR VERY BEST" if you want to have other's hire you for some dollars. BUT REMEMBER, do not get greedy and ask for ridiculous rates. I see a lot of (not all) models asking for ridiculous rates, plus photos, and more these days, with only a few poor quality and posed images on their profile. Oh, and please do not do 6 or 10 or even 20 shoots and think you can class yourself as a professional model and start asking for stupidly ridiculous rates. Most of us are aware of models doing that. Be ready if you are genuine and be prepared to do a lengthy apprenticeship before self-classing as professional!. C'mon... really! it takes a long time before you can ask ridiculous rates. Seriously, it does!
