"My Photo Group" was created and designed to help area photographers gain experience, build portfolios and have an excuse to get out and capture the world around them. But there are only so many pictures of landscapes and flowers one can take. If you are an established model, would like to be a model or just someone who would like some great pictures of yourself to hang on your wall then consider becoming the subject of one of our photography events. If nothing else, it is a great way to get out and socialize.
If you are a model looking for a photographer to collaborate with on your next project and want the freedom to play and experiment, give me a call. By working in conjunction with the photo group, it gives you access to a variety of photographers and a great way to gain experience in front of the camera.
Currently all work is TFP/TFCD (trade for pictures/trade for CD) for all models without experience. More experienced models will be compensated for their time and prices will be negotiated prior to the photo shoot. All new models will need to do test shots with me prior to any scheduled shoots. Test shots are unpaid, no exception. All models will need to sign a release form prior to any shoot, also no exception.
I expect a certain level of professionalism from the models I work with. As an ex-model myself I know what to expect from the models I work with. Believe me I know all the tricks. Once you agree to a shoot, I expect communication. That means phone calls answered or returned and emails responded to. If you do that then we'll get along just fine otherwise I will never use you again.
Head shots and resumes are not essential but if you have a resume it will help me, if not I may ask you to fill out a simple survey form. Unless otherwise specified, you will need to know how to do your own hair and makeup. Wardrobe will be discussed prior to any shoot and a list will be provided. Unless otherwise specified, you will need to provide your own wardrobe.
While all this sounds rather harsh and to the point, I am an easy person to get along with and have a really great sense of humor. As long as everyone is happy and the job is getting done, expect to have a good time.
The following is taken from my Model Mayhem site. If you are not familiar with Model Mayhem, it is a free, searchable directory site where models, photographers, costume designers and make-up artists can post their information. It is a great way to network with other talented people in the photography/modeling world. Here is the information;
Established models will get regular updates on upcoming events and will be given the opportunity to 'bid' on the events they are interested in doing. Once interest has been established we will discuss scheduling and proceed from there.
If you are interested in modeling, know someone who is interested in modeling or just someone who would like to pose for a single event, please have them contact me through the 'contact us' link on the left.
