Hey just wanted to drop by and say Hi.

I'm still looking for guys to step up do my faces project so if anyone wants to let me know. I have gotten a few who said they would but come the day of the shot they drop off the earth.

Seeing all of the talent out there in Vegas has me very excited to be moving there!  big_smile

Will probably be another few months at least, though.  Wish I could hurry up and clean my darn house so I can put it on the market already!

Oh, 1 more thing. Im really leaning into getting this camara

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp … 8084392413

Its within the budget for me. About 1,000 I would love to know your guys opinions. Im baisically ready to step up to the next level and graduate form 'poin n shoots'. Im also having alot of Nieces and Nephews doing those things you want to capture on camara, so Id like to get some better quality images. You guys think this is a descent camara?

The T1i has an image quality substantially better than my D60, and I've sold 30x40 prints from that one. It's a solid performer, though the controls aren't as easy to use as in the 30D/40D/50D series. For pretty much any use other than high-speed sports or extreme environments, it's a very good camera.

so what does everybody shoot with?  what about accessories and lights?

Canon dSLRs, 2 lenses  (28-70 and 70-200) + 1.4x teleconverter.
Speedotron lights that I generally can't use--no studio and can't shoot at home.
Sunpak 544 flash with a lightstand adapter so I can use it with a softbox or umbrella. (I own two of them, but one's gone on walkabout, and I haven't seen it recently.)
Misc reflectors and stuff.

(Overweight, middle aged guy)

I get a gig as a model or background talent about 2 or 3 times per year without even trying.  In one case I was even being considered for a primary role...
                   ... and I have absolutely no interest in being in FRONT of the camera.


The main thing to do is sign up with an agency. 
Some people will tell you "you can't be signed with a modeling or talent agency because you're too"

My advice... leave it up to the agency to tell you that!

I was actually selected to play asian business person role in a movie shot here in Vegas. I just saw an craigslist ad for extras and want to be in the background of a movie. They ask me to send a picture, so I did. And they said I would be perfect for the role. Although I did go do it, because of conflicting schedules. As it has been said before, Anybody can be a model to the right person.

hey if your a local artist and appreciate this thread, could you guys put the banner on your page or maybe make your own, (incase yellow is not your color...LOL)
Can I ask just a lil more form you guys and bring/get more people here.... ??

http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y176/polarpics/Untitled-1.gif

the more we get the more the thread will stay alive and models will feel more comftorable and the photog to photog talk will eventually lead to shootouts, or meet and greets, or some inpromptu shoot at midnight usually....lol

just a thought

~~~~~~~~~~~

trust me the talent pool here is not all that cracked up to be.
lately models are getting "greedy and demanding" every month that goes by, and they refuse to pay us (the photographers) for our time, sweat and tears, and of course our gas for our trips to Mt Charleston, Red Rock, Lake Mead, and Dry Bed Lake and so on...

Models here in Vegas, need a serious wake up call.... they are the ones putting out casting calls for pics, right? So if they want something and we are able to provide why cant they pay "us" for our time working for them.

but still, they refuse to PAY us! 

But when its US looking for models... they demand WE pay them, and rarely does a model ever come over for TFP work

So woudlnt this be a double standard policy brought on by the models themselves?

Asking US to only shoot TFP is getting ridiculous, models need to give something back to us (the photographers). Either cash donation, unique concepts, or some damn figure studies....hahahaha..

just my .02 cents

Click is awesome!  Just got done spending a week with him and another model in Diego.  The other model was prettier so he posed with her all the time, I was only able to take a few snapshots of them working together.

But I got some cool new underwater shots from Curt in Riverside the week before!

wasnt direct to you per say was more on the "food for thought" sideline for new commers or "ms. jane come lately's" who think they are the Sh!t, when actually they are full of it.

Bottom line, the models with 5 pics and 2 comments total, and a bio front page full of blah blah blah useless text thats in al CAPS and make demads like this/these

i dont know you so im bring an escort, deal with it
i want every single pic of the shoot before i leave
you provide mua or no deal
I am experience model and that why your paying me to show
any offers of TFP are useless, so photogs dont bother.
and I dont shoot nudes, but i ok with fullbody implied...

Thank Mike for the invite!!  I agree with what you said about some of the models on here!!  I see your moving to NC.  I miss Vegas soooooooooo much!!  Its going to be a cultural shock, don't you think?  I'm only in Reno and its been a hard move for me!  Good luck to you!  Hopefully the economy is better there!  More people willing the pay up!  LOL!!!

Now that's classic! I have the FE2 but can't tell you what film's in it to save my life. I really need to shoot something with it. Everytime I pick it up and look through the viewfinder I'm in love.
