Camera’s ready, prepare the model!
I am reworking a few items on my menu for model shoots. I am putting more effort in developing my photographic style, retouching, and client delivery. And with that I am updating my Model portfolio image page. I plan on having the page to not only show the current hard work within testing light session to master light, but as well to show updated Adobe Photoshop skills that I am developing.
Plus it will act as a showcase to show the “team” who make the dream work. From makeup artist, hair stylist, clothing stylist, assistants, retouch artist and of course the models themselves. And not to forget the modeling agencies that supply the talent that makes everything come together in the end.
When I finish setting it up I hope to have a comprehensive listing of what primary things a model needs to bring to shoots. What the standards are for modeling agencies. Identify the differences between catalog, commercial, editorial and lifestyle modeling. Proper dress and grooming for a go-see. The reason you need a composite card as well as a constant updating for your digital Polaroid.
Just a few things that speak to the needs to work toward the business. I will also blog interviews with models and agents to share their experiences as well as tips that will help you or possibly your son or daughter get a better idea of what the modeling business is all about.
