Things we look for in potential models:
Honesty: If you lie about anything from your age to your residence, there is a good chance you will not get the gig.
Professionalism: This is really important in a situation like this. We really stress that models be professional at all times. We enjoy seeing all of your silly sides as much as you like showing it, but when we're shooting so are you.
Passion: It is very important that you enjoy what you're doing just as much as we enjoy doing what we do.
Willingness: Many times models will need to walk through tall grass and dirty grounds. But we cannot tell you enough, they always make for great photos.
Some people get nervous when they know they’ll be standing in front of a camera for a while. Although this is very common, there is nothing to be afraid of. This may or may not be you at the moment. Some people don’t get nervous at all. Instead, they are excited and eager to start. Here are a few tips to assure an excellent photoshoot!
Ask Questions: Ask your photographer what the mood is, what their favorite pose is, or how to do different things. This will lead both you and the photographer to do better.
Speak Up: You may see a spot or location that the photographer didn’t. Point it out and give it a shot. (Pun intended)
Be Yourself: This is sometimes difficult because models often have to act like someone they are not in front of the camera. But, when you no longer have to act like a grungy chick, be your own beautiful self. This will make you and the photographer more comfortable with each other which inevitably leads to awesome photos.
Don’t Eat a lot of Sugar: Sugar can cause acne rather quickly. The day before the shoot, try not to consume large amounts of sugar. After your part is done, you can go back to eating a sleeve of Oreos a day. This way, you won’t have to cake on makeup to attempt to cover it up.
Practice Your Poses: There is nothing worse than a photo where the model has a blank stare and her hands by her side. Although this look is sometimes desirable, 99% of the time it isn’t. Granted, this is partially the photographer’s fault for not being prepared. The night before your shoot, go on the internet and find some poses that you think fit the theme. Stand in front of the mirror and remember the ones you like best. Even your photographer does this and they’re not even the model. This will make the shoot run smoothly and quickly!
Whoa! Not so much Makeup: When standing in highly lit areas, large amounts of makeup will stand out like a sore thumb. Apply enough makeup to cover blemishes and to make your eyes POP, but honey, don’t over-do it.
Bring a Small Bag: This is a good idea for models when they have a phone and wallet with them throughout the shoot. Which most do. Therefore, bring a cute and stylish bag to hold these things. This way the photographer can hold it for you, or you can even wear it throughout the shoot.
Give Your Photographer Options: Usually, when a photographer gives you a theme, they also give you an idea of what they would like you to wear. Bring many clothing options so you and your photographer can decide on an outfit together.
Props are Fun: When a photographer hands you a prop, this should be a sign a freedom for you. There are so many possibilities with props. Think outside the box. For example, let’s say you are given a pair of glasses. Obviously, you can wear them, you could also put the end between your teeth, hang them on your shirt, put them on your head, hang them on your pant loop, hang them really low on your nose, or just hold them. The possibilities are endless.
IT’S ALL ART: No matter how the photoshoot goes, just remember, it is all beautiful in it’s own way. If you feel like you didn’t bring your “A” game, it’s OK. This is a learning experience and you will most likely get a second chance.
