The LIST ~ a list of veteran photographers dedicated to helping "new" models build their portfolios.
WELCOME to The "NewBie Model of the WEEK"~!!
Each week "The LIST" will present a new MM newbie model as "NewBie Model of the WEEK". This is a competition for "The LIST" member photographers and the newbie models who have connected with them through The LIST.
To enter this competition you must be a "LIST" *photographer and your **model must meet the criteria set for NewBie models by "The ToP DRAWER". The Top Drawer will validate your entry and TD members will vote every Friday on each valid entry with a majority vote deciding the week's winner.
LIST photographers may post 1-5 images of the newbie model they've chosen to submit. If your model wins we will post one image (our choice) to represent the winning model. As a LIST *photographer you may submit one **newbie model per week. If your model doesn't win you may submit your model again after 30 days.
Each winning model will be presented at the top of the thread, with our favorite Pic and a short bio. The winning model will also be featured as "NewBie of the WEEK" in the "NewBie Model of the WEEK" Winners Gallery at pbase.com. In addition the winning model and his/her LIST photographer will be awarded a medalion to display on their profile page.
You must post your entry for "NewBie Model of the WEEK" in this thread. You may post your entry only once each week and you may not "bump" your entry post. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in a disqualification.
This thread will be used by "LIST" photographers for posting images and brief commentary related to the newbie models they present here to The ToP DRAWER. Congratulations to models and photographers is also always welcome here, but if you'd like to chit-chat you may do that at "The LIST". Let's try to keep this thread all about making it easier for The Top DRAWER dudes to view talent.
If you have any questions or comments you may PM the inbox of the OP Amedeus or visit "The LIST".
* Definition of LIST photographer: A photographer who has submitted work to and has been approved by The Top DRAWER for inclusion to"The LIST"
** Definition of a NewBie model: Any aspiring model who has been a MM member for less than a year with one year or less total modeling experience. She may not be affiliated with any modeling agency as of yet and her portfolio must reflect a "newBie" ambience, including images, listed experience and contacts. He/she may not show in his/her profile "tours, rates, or anything else that would give him/her the appearance of a working professional model. If in doubt "The TOP DRAWER" will make final determination.
A very BIG thanks to Brian Ziff for our awesome "NewBie Model of the WEEK" banner~!!
A BIG thanks also to our own "LIST" member Chipshotz for providing us with a very cool banner to launch the thread with while Brian was completing his work on the banner we originally approved. You saved my butt Chip, thanks~!! We are awaiting yet more banners from Brian consistent in style with those already posted and we will post those in the other list threads as they become available to us. Thanks again guys~!!
Let the FUN begin~!! ******************************
This was a tough shoot, we started at the park, and were driven off by mosquitoes, as She was allergic to them. Well after some Bactine to cover her body, and waiting an hour for the swelling to go down, she wanted to try again. nice results and well worth the trouble.
Congratulations Stephanie and Rudi... I've been swamp with work.. I'll be out of town on Vacation until the end of the month... Going to yellowstone.. (any models that are free in that area, e-mail me... I might want to shoot a couple of day while there)
Also model Darling Jenny MM#716367 wants to be listed as a newbi....She e-mailed me and said that she requested to be put on the list and has heard nothing.. Please add her so that we can submit pictures..when I get back..
Take care.. stay cool... and I give Jon the right to cast my vote(not likely since he seems to shot a lot of newbi models every week..)for his pick for both of the weeks that I'll miss..

Her first shoot with me was only her second ever; we did five looks in two and a half hours, and she was posing like she'd been modeling all her life! She's the most amazing natural talent I've come across. The first three photos are from our first shoot together, the last two are from our second shoot. None have been retouched.

For the week beginning Sunday on the 13th, I am entering Cristiana Cole
She is a family friend, whom I have known since she was very young,
she has been one of my most often photographed muses over the years,
so I have many images of her. Here are a few. You can also see some work
she has done with a few other local photographers in her MM album. Although she has done some modeling on and off, usually associated with her band, she has never been a professional or signed model, and only now is seeking to work as a model.
