Hello! big_smile

Please educate yourself about scams by reading this useful thread:-

http://www.ripoffreport.com


Here also is an excellent post by Madame Bink, one of the best known and most successful art nude models in the UK. She's been modelling (mostly nude) for 5 years and has never had a serious problem with a photographer because she uses her head and takes reasonable precautions, including checking references, before working with somebody for the first time.

Actually, she did. She posted it in EVERY section. This is the one that didn't get locked. But I agree, there's not much room to give advice other than linking to www.newmodels.com etc in here.

Why do you think you're ready as a model for paid assignments?

I'm not saying you're not (or that you are), that would be a critique and you'll need to post in the critique section for other's opinions on that.
I'm curious as to why you feel you're ready at age 16 with a minimum of experience.

She's 16 and fairly new. I'd cut her some slack. If she pays attention, she'll learn.

you wont get paid simple as that, sad but true.

if you want to get paid, work hard and i mean show us what you can do, improve your make up skills, buy a huge wardrobe of clothes. You need to invest in this game.

you have 2 years before you can model lingerie for Victorias secret as im sure you have to be 18+ for those gigs, lets see what you achieve in those 2 years

Just took a peek at your portfolio.
You have a lovely face.
Checked your profile page for your stats.  Says 5'7" and 100lbs.
Anything I say about that will come way to close to a critique.

So, the positives;
You are young.  HUGE positive in this industry.
You have a lovely face, imo.
You seem to have the desire to chase this dream and I see a lot of raw potential.

I look forward to seeing more of your work and watching you achieve your dreams.

My two cents, YMMV

Thanks to those of you who said cut me some slack. For those of you with negative comments, I'm a newbie. Hince why I posted in the NEWBIE FORUM. As for the other forums, I'm sorry. I didn't realize this was a form of spam. And I actually get a ton of offers for paid assignments, and I've actually made quite a large sum of money from them too. And actually I'm more interested in fashion and glamour, not lingere. Sorry for any inconvenience, it won't happen again.

Everyone's experience is different, but in general the stronger photographer on MM are unlikely to pay someone new. They usually have more people to shoot with than they have time. That doesn't mean you won't get paid offers. But sometimes a trade can be more valuable than a paid shoot, if it gets you amazing images that you can promote yourself with.

Of course you're welcome to charge whatever you want smile And I have also run into people whose profiles said "paid assignments only" that were open to trading with strong photographers.

Yes, but it got locked, because you posted a solicitation for work in critique, as opposed to what you're supposed to do and that is ask for or give (in response to a critique request) a critique of work.

"I actually get a ton of offers for paid assignments, and I've actually made quite a large sum of money from them too."

Will those photos go into your portfolio? because right now it your portfolio shows you've shot with one photographer, in 5 outfits.

You're young and have a great face.. my advice is to look at the portfolios of the models who are already working.. I'm not talking about MM models, I'm saying go to the websites of models who have already been signed and look to recreate shots, poses, etc that they'll use. Study those expressions, poses, and what kinds of shots they have in their portfolios that are approved by a top agency. Don't just stand or sit there and have your picture taken.. really lean to model and target the kinds of shots that will get you the attention of an agency.

So many MM models shoot for their egos or shoot to play dress up and have pretty shots of themselves.. Be smarter and shoot to get the attention of the people who can eventually sign you and get you real modeling work. And don't come into the game with a sense of entitlement and that you need to get paid when you have nothing to show for it but some shots in the park with the same expression in all of them. Shoot with the best photographers you can, even if you have to pay them. Put effort into the wardrobe, styling, hair and make-up because the competition out there if fierce.

http://www.wilhelmina.com
http://www.elitemodel.com

this by the way was a wonderful two day online course for modeling that is definitely worth the investment.. tons of very valuable, real world information for new models.

Good luck.. again, you have a beautiful look and I sincerely hope you achieve your  dream of modeling :-)

Ummm , why would you refer a 16 yr old to a "safety "thread written by an adult nude model ?

I would think that the more appropriate "advice " is that her parent /guardian accompany her to all shoots

The advice is good whether she's modelling nude or not.

As for the parents tagging along, that's their decision or the photographer's - not mine or yours (unless we're shooting with her).

I prefer to use models who are:-

a) over 18
b) based in the UK
c) well known and popular within the UK

I think the OP, with all due respect to her, fails on all the above counts big_smile

Photographer has no say in the matter as the op is a minor, parent or guardian is a must.

The Madame Bink post/link has no relevance to the op's forum posting.

If they were a reader of the MM forums they might be certain that there was a law that parents or guardians must be present at all photoshoots with persons 18 and under.

Oddly enough, I don't take the word of anybody on the MM forums when it comes to matters of law, especially US law! wink
