    Ya photogenic.
    Who cares whether they are pretty in real life,as long as they look good in photos..gattractive enough for mass media..thats all that matter isn't it.

    this is a silly topic

    Pretty models don't always photograph well (there are many types of modelling where being photogenic is not a requirement) and vice versa, of course there are two exceptions 1) pretty and photogenic and 2) the vast majority here, both not pretty nor photogenic (harsh but true).

    Better to say that they don't have to be pretty although it helps.

    Agree.

    Many CS photographers with their faces hiding behind big DSLRs are prettier than the photogenic models.

    If you're refering to models here, than yes I agreed. Not really very pretty just photogenic... at least some of them.

    If you're talking about professional models, than being pretty and photogenic will not be enough. There's a lot more to being a model than just looking good.
    I get paid more shooting part time ...... damn, I should find more time to shoot part time

    it is the man behind the camera ..... yes but he still need something decent to start with. Can't change an apple into a pineapple right?

    Photoshop ......... but without something decent to start with in the first place ................ why the hell did you choose that model in the first place?

    Pretty & photogenic.

    If you're referring to some of the catwalk models, they are of another breed - hangars with legs - with their anorexic physique.

    beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    photogenicity (if there is such a word) is in the eye of the camera

    is there really a basis for comparison?

    that said, a quote:

    “People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

    ...it is up to every photographer.. if he is serious and earnest.. to bring out that light. cheers

    Well there are models who are not that pretty but put on make-up to "enhance" their best assets and there are those who undergo ps (not photoshop but plastic surgery)
