Tiana and Digiography proved last week that a good photographer can take a new promising model, and absolutely kick ass!

food for thought
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

I think this will get rolling with a full head of steam fairly quickly. Once it does, I wouldn't want to wait a month for one of my NewBies to be considered. I have some models already lined up (and they are really excited), and I'm waiting for responses from a few more. While I may not have one for January - I sure will for February. With over 200 list shooters here, there could/should be 20 models competing every week.

My entry for this week...the beautiful Daniella.  She has a really great look, and is very willing to try just about anything to get a fantastic shot.  Not to mention, she drove to Peoria from Kenosha, Wisconsin.  That takes some serious dedication.

Liz Brown MM # 366326 was wonderful to work with, she even went to the trouble of securing one of the finest MUA around for the shoot, Lauren Warner MM # 135363. you all know by now I love that beauty so here is the first image

Thanks for the votes everyone.  This is a wonderful program Craig has gotten going and I'm happy to participate.  And anyone participating is winning.  This is a win/win all the way around.  The contest win is just icing on an already beautiful winning cake smile  Beautiful shots from everyone and most importantly it's such a great start for the models.  This will help them get more photo's from other photographers and start off seeing themselves looking totally rockin' as all of the contestants and photographers can clearly see.  Great program.  Woot woot Craig!  Woot woot to all particpants smile

Hey guys, thanks for the votes! This is a huuuuge deal for me, and if it weren't for this "Newbie/Pro-Photographer" program I would'nt have ever come across such a great opportunity and gotten to meet such wonderful people. This was my 4th shoot, and just from the few hours I spent with Lucinda, I learned soooo much, and was also able to watch a gorgeous professional model (Ginger Ely) work her "thang" as well. I absolutely love this competition (and industry) and hope that everyone out there will be seeing a lot more of me!
AGAIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am going to go cry with joy in the shower now!

You were very deserving Tiffany, Lucinda is a fantastic photographer, and you chose well, but don't let anybody kid you, the better the model, the better the image, and you did a fantastic job!  Lucinda will be the first to tell you it was a collaboration.  Congratulations to you both, and Tiffany, here's hoping you use this to jumpstart a fantastic career!  smile

Hey Jonathan, I have that exact same piano tie~! It was given to me by a beautiful showgirl back when I was performing at The Excalibur in Las Vegas. I eventually married the young girl 20 years my junior, and as "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" she stayed there when I left, but I still have the tie to this day. wink

thats pretty wild, the tie is courtesy of Lauren Warner, she has an amazing wardrobe collection and is as good a stylist as Ive seen, you still have the tie, memories are they not sweet.

I just got in from shooting all day...over three cities....and I'm trying to update and count votes for Newbie of the Week and I keep nodding out, falling asleep, and thinking this is going to have to wait until morning. I'm sorry guys. Updates and Newbie of the Week will be announced after I've had some sleep. Thanks for your patience.

I am so happy for Liz Brown. She made the effort to bring in Lauren Warner, one of our finest MUA's and gave me so much to work with. We went from zero to 100 in 60 seconds and then switched directions with the cigar. she is so much fun and worked so hard. Congratulations Liz, I am so happy for you... and thank you Lauren, you rock

This is Adalis #441297, she arrived at our shoot on Sunday a bit apprehensive about her ability to pose but after being made up by the talented MUA OASBUAUTYFIX #541436, Adalis did a fantastic job and quickly became at home in front of the camera. She was a pleasure to work with!

Ashley was drafted from the main street through campus for a magazine editorial shot. A well-known hair stylist asked if she'd model if he did her hair (cut, color, style, and makeup) for free, and she said SURE!

A few hours later, it became apparent that she's not only adorable, but truly has talent and that hard-to-define model quality! So now she's learning to model, getting experience, and has signed up for a Mayhem profile (which means it should be active in a few months...LOL)

Some beautiful pics submitted already. Hopefully I can make this a competition....

Here's my entry of newbie Teffany D.  Really great attitude and very determined. Without asking for a ride (and without my knowing she needed a ride), she took four buses in the rain to get to my studio. She was drenched when she arrived. Though my MUA (Make-up By Shanilton) did a magnificent job of transforming this rain drenched cute young girl into a beautiful young woman!  She has some castings posted for togs on her page, so any of you others on the list in the LA area should try to get some shots in with her. Very mature for her age. Very good dancer too. We took a whole other sequence of dance pose shots which I want to overlay on top of one another...Just don't have time yet to do that.  Anyway, Here's Teffany!
