About Me

I know that everyone on MM wants to have the status of "PAY ONLY" Yes money talks Bull Sh*t walks...But yet I look at some of the (IMAGES) on here and there is no possible way you will get a paying job...Some models on here think just because there willing to do nudes that makes them bankable...NOT TRUE...I usually go to the major agencies when I need a model for good paying jobs. Why because the agencies make sure there girls have the tools to get hired. That means sending them to the right photographers to build a good portfolio. Photographers who know what images will get you the jobs that you desire (LIKE IN SHOW ME THE MONEY) Plus much more like going on to act (TV COMMERICALS, ect)...I like MM because there are some girls on this site that can become very good models...Or are very good models but don't know what pictures to use...Some of the girls are shooting with the wrong photographers that don't know what a good image are...Plus I like to work with new talent so I can teach and show them how to approach the lens. So please don't get offended if I contact you...It's only because I think you have a very good look and I can give you great images and get some great images. Ladies if I don't get right back to you it's because I'm booked...So please just send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as I'm available...Thank you!
