Miami Agency Models Stop Wasting Time

Matt Dunn_Page_4Miami Agency Models Stop Wasting Time! That is the most important asset you have and it is your youth.  Time is your enemy in this business and therefore you cannot afford to act as if you have all of the time in the world.  You don’t! There is a shelf life on you and you will get to a point where you cannot model anymore.  So doesn’t it make sense to fast track your self buy getting the best photos done by the best photographers available to get you book in the best shape immediately?

Too many girls and guys come to me wanting me to shoot them after spending a year or two on free photographers only to continually be let down when your agency doesn’t like what was produced.  Another day wasted shooting and this affects not only the look of your book but also your self esteem.  When you continue to shoot pointless and bad images with those free photographers who prowl around sites like One Model Place and Model Mayhem , you start to question your involvement in the industry and ask yourself questions like “can I really model” or “maybe I am just fooling myself.  I see it all the time! I also see the look on their faces when I shoot them and see how “stunned” they appear when I am shooting beautiful and sexy images of them.  They tell me often “I really cant believe that is me”! That is because they are so psychologically beat down after wasting all of that time that I must spend time building them back up.

To me this is probably the best thing about digital imagery.  The model can receive immediate feedback and see the results thus bolstering their self-esteem.  I noticed this when I started working digitally out in 2001 in Los Angeles and the celebrities knew about LCD viewing before I really did.  I would shoot an image and they would say “let me see that”. Digital cameras have flooded the market and with many newbies picking up a camera for the first time it may be difficult to tell if you are talking to a photographer or a salesman.  The work ALWAYS tells the story.  Look at their work and style.  Can you see yourself in their images?  If so ask pertinent questions such as agencies they have worked with, published work, website?, and references either from other models or agents and also parents.  I have no problem giving references and anyone else who is legitimate shouldn’t either.  Do your homework or you will get burned.  Remember in this digital age, There are many who will call themselves “photographer” but all they really are is a salesman.

The really good photographers charge you because they know their results are proven.  They are not experimenting like the “free photographer” or really cheap one who is just hoping the shot will turn out.  A really good photographer has tried and true ways of working, has a team of hair and makeup artists, has his locations he has used many times with outstanding results, and has his lighting down pat.  You are in good hands with them whether you are a seasoned pro or just starting out.  They know what poses look best and light that looks best on face shapes and garments you are shooting.

This is why the very best models always have the best photos.  They leave the freebies behind and know they get what they pay for.  Therefore, also, they will sequentially get the best jobs and get paid more money.  And the most important thing they are gaining is time, longer time making a higher rate in the modeling business.

New Work For Radio Disney with Austin Mahone

New Work For Radio Disney with Austin Mahone

Here is a little from my latest work with Radio Disney with Austin Mahone.  To be honest, I had to ask my daughter who Austin Mahone was since I had never heard of him.  She knew right away. although she is a country music fan.  She told me about things he had done as well as he is friends with Justin Bieber.

This shoot took place at a school in Miami called SLAM.  There were 1000+ screaming kids, many of them girls, there to catch a glimpse of the new bubble gum pop star. MDP_4186

Another Throwback Thursday

Another example of a beautiful fashion and makeup story with the amazing Brenda Green doing hair and makeup. An amazing model from Next Models shot in my studio in Los Angeles California. I am so sorry I forgot the name of my amazing stylist(the best I ever had used). She would bring volumes of clothes, accessories, and shoes and all were amazing. Wish I could have shot them all. We did lots of great shoots together, all three of us and would make magic every time.

Are you a Professional Photographer?-Fort Lauderdale Wedding Photographer | Portrait Photography

Fort Lauderdale Wedding Photographer | Portrait Photography

Are You a Professional Photographer?
Take this simple test to see if you (or someone you know) shows the characteristics of a true
professional.
1.
You pay taxes on your income.
You file estimated tax payments q
uarterly, file state sales tax,
and you claim your income on your tax return. If you don’t, think about the number of people
who see your “page” on Facebook. It won’t take long for the state and federal revenue people
to connect your FB “business” with the fact that you don’t obey the law and report your income
like a real professional.
2.
You have a real website
. Facebook doesn’t count. A website legitimizes you as someone who
will be around in a couple of years, and knows how to run a business.
3.
You have an established post production workflow with backups and offsite storage
. If
not, what are you going to tell your clients when something trashes their images and don’t have
the originals?
4.
You have backup equipment
. Say you drop your main camera/lens at a wedding. What will
you do? Where is your backup gear? How will you respond in front of your client?
5.
You set custom white balance and calibrate your monitors
. If you don’t know what these
are, that might explain why your images don’t produce consistent colors.
6.
You don’t rely on filters, special effects, color gimmicks or other manipulation to give
your images appeal
. If they can’t stand on their own with basic post production, are they really
that good? Getting the exposure right “in camera” is a hallmark of a talented professional.
7.
You work with reputable print labs and equipment to generate quality printed output and
products
. Your clients really do want prints. Are you going to let them produce terrible prints at
the local giant store? Have you ever compared the difference?
8.
You have insurance
. You cover your equipment, liability, and errors and omissions. Stuff
happens. Are you professional enough to be prepared?
9.
You know how to use your camera outside of “Automatic”.
Can you estimate a manual
exposure in bright sunlight? Do you know how to use a light meter? Can you calculate
equivalent exposures across a range of ISO, shutter speed and f-stops? A professional can do
that in her head.
10.
You know how to use all kinds of light, natural and artificial
. If you sell yourself as a
“natural light” photographer, you may not have the skills to use supplemental light to create
good images. Use of on camera and off camera flashes is often a necessity.
11.
Your web/portfolio/sample images are clean
. Are yours blown out, dull, out of balance,
uninteresting or poorly composed? How do you know? Have you ever had another
photographer that you respect give you honest critique on your images? Your clients are not
the best judge of image quality.
12.
You use contracts and model releases for your sessions.
Do you realize you can be liable
if you publish images that don’t have releases, particularly for minors?
13.
You belong and actively participate in professional photography organizations.
Are you
in WPPI, PPA or a
local group? If not, why not? These groups exist to provide guidance and
fellowship and development to professionals of all levels.
14.
You pursue continual education.
What is the last photography class you have taken? Are
you pursuing a degree or merit program? Do you teach or mentor other photographers? If not,
why not? The best professionals continually grow and share with others.
15.
You represent the business of photography professionally.
This means that you charge a
fair price, you don’t copy others’ work, you follow through on your commitments, produce
quality products and services, and you treat other photographers with respect.
So how many of the 15 points did you get? How “professional” do you think you are? What can you do
to improve your standing in the photography community?
