Thread: Photographer Models??

  1. #1

    Default Photographer Models??

    How many of us here actually hope to be models instead of photographers? Maybe some of us practise hard enough so that one day we can do our own self-protrait instead?

    What are your views?

    There's no choice for "I suck and I'm fat and I've attitude, how to model?" Well this option is only applicable to me.

    Actually model need not to be pretty, handsome, tall and slim.
    Look at the MRT ad, various foodcourt ad, they photographed "very normal" people. Only in fashion magazines, runways and *hmm* my model shoots that we use very pretty and tall and slim models.

    Lolz. Those are from 'Talent agencies' right, rather than the model agencies? these days its so hard to separate those who are genuine model/talent scouts, and those who are trying to get u to buy a package/modeling portfolio/ what not.

    And there's a distinct difference between a Newbie Model and an Amateur/Freelance. Newbie means no experience whatsoever, amateur means some experience, but not professional (not making a living by it) freelance means you are not with any agency? is that correct?

    well.. I wanted to post long time ago but just no excuse.. ha.


    When I was young, I used to think of being a model.. coz that time I had the figure.. People also said I looked like Tang Miaoling, Sally Yeh and Zoe Tay..

    But now.. somehow things had changed..
    NO figure + no LOOks. haiz.. maybe need some make-up artist who can do the job well and a good photographer who can make me look slim.

    Ah, my sifu taught me many years back:
    Rule #1 : photographer must be thick skinned
    Rule #2 : photographer must know how to run
    Rule #3 : photographer must have strong stomach
    etc......

    I model freelance every now and then, but it has to be something I'm interested in, I don't model for the money
