A good question.

I describe a Mentor as someone with:

1.    An in depth knowledge of their industry
2.    The willingness to share their knowledge with others
3.    Patience, and an understanding of what it is like to be a newbie.

Hope that helps.

I am very proud to have been added to the Model Mentors here on Model Mayhem.

This is an open invitation to any model… if you feel that I may be able to assist you as a Mentor in your modeling or your career development please do not hesitate to write. I will be more than happy to assist however possible.

This reminded me of the Seinfeld episode for the Mentor / protégé plot :-) :

VOICE: Our next speaker is George Costanza on the subject of risk management.

(George steps up and opens his folder.)

GEORGE: Ovaltine. Have you ever had this stuff? Why is it called Ovaltine?

(George flips through a few pages.)

GEORGE: They should call it round tine. You know what I'm talking about.

WILHELM: (proudly, to the man seated beside him): He's my protégé.

Last modeling job I did was over 20 years ago, so I'm not sure if I qualify.  And I'm not exactly a newbie, although I work with them all the time.  However, other than not being a model myself these days, I do feel as though I have something to offer as a mentor.  Let me know . . . .

Peter,

TXPhotog would be a great asset to the Mentor program. There’s nothing like getting sound logical advice from the other side of the camera… not to mention the sound legal knowledge that TX possesses specifically in the Copyright end of things

Hi JoJo

I totally agree with your comments, but I am concerned that the Model Mentors may be pushed aside if we add photographers to the Model Mentor page. There is already a sort of 'Photographers mentoring Models' attitude on the original 'LIST'.

If anyone has any opinions on this, please do message me, so that a consensus decison can be made.

Well, considering we already have Phillipe on the list, I don't see the harm in adding Roger. He knows his stuff and would make an excellent addition to the list.

What does "pushed aside" mean?  Really, I don't understand that comment.  Is there some sort of concern that in the marketplace of (free) mentoring, photographers might get some of the attention that models would otherwise get? 

Is it that models seeking mentoring might decide, if it is available to them, to seek the knowledge of photographers instead of, or in addition to, knowledge from models?

And that is bad why?

Peter Buckley-Saxon wrote:

No, there isn't.

What the original LIST says it's for, and I take it at its word, is

I am posting here a weekly updated list of "Top Drawer" approved pro-semi pro photographers who have agreed to dedicate at least one day each month to indiscriminately help newbie models in their regions develop their portfolios.

As I mentioned in PM to you, I am NOT offering to do that.  Mentor, yes.  Develop portfolios, no.  My profile says I don't do that, and I mean it.

The two lists are (as stated) for distinctively different purposes.

Also, my offer stems not from my role as "photographer", but from my role as "model agent".  After years of running a model agency in NYC, and writing a book about modeling, it might just be that I have something to offer as a "mentor", even though I am not a model.

But do what you think is best.

I would like to sincerely thank TXPhotog, JoJo Suicide & Miss FiFi-Alexis for their input.

Firstly I would like to state that, on taking over this thread, there were a good number of Mentors already on the list, prior to my involvement, and I did not realise that we already had a photographer (Philipe) on the list. As such, there is obviously now no reason to consider this matter, as it already has been decided.

We will add ANYONE to the list who is willing to mentor, and fulfils the criteria.

The only change that we are going to make that may be beneficial, is to denote the status of the Mentor (e.g. Model, Photographer, etc). This will be done over the next few days.

So finally, welcome TXPhotog to the list. I will add you details shortly.

Thank you for your kind offer to be a Mentor. You have been duly added to the list.

It is good to see another UK based Mentor supporting the team!

As I often work with Newbie models and find that I mentor them anyway, I would be happy to offer my help. At this point I feel I have more to offer Models than I do young photographers. I have just moved to the northwest. I am living in Vancouver BC, but will be working also in Seattle, Portland and California, when possible.

Hi,

I am available to help new models break into modeling and critique their portfolios through this program. 

As many of you know, I am extremely active with this site.  I'm well connected with many of Model Mayhem's top photographers (in part through the site's Picture of the Day and Picture of the Day - Original Edition competitions, which I host) and work with many new models.

Simply let me know what I can do to help. 

Take care,
T. R. Willmitch
