    To put it simple, there are two ways to look at it. You as the subject have to show what you want to show. The photographer will then shoot. The other way is the photographer wants to shoot what he wants, you(the subject) just listen and pose. Basically, a photo shoot has to be a two way thing. There needs to communication. It has to be fun. I see you are a sport dancer. Then show the world who you are, your personality, your style through your body language, your smile, your eyes. Leave it to the photographer to capture those moments

    if i was going to do a photo shoot, what would be going through my mind would be;
    1. finding a suitable location. coordinating what the model wears with the background is important.
    2. lighting conditions. to use natural sunlight, perhaps bounced off reflectors, or to use artificial lighting? how to light the model for the best effect.
    3. pose and expression of the model. not necessarily a smiley expression always, sometimes i would want the model to feel an emotion or a mood, and be photographed with that expression or mood. poses need not be cliched and stilted, might want to experiment with motion and unusual perspectives.
    4. bringing out the best in the model, making him/her feel at ease so that he/she connects better with the camera.

    A photographer will be most happy and shoot at his best when he is paid well.......but only a handful.

    Paying a lot does not mean higher quality works but paying less will definately get lesser quality works. Choose wisely if you are paying them........most important both of your must click and converse well together.
