Q: I want to model in some of the campaigns you shoot, How can I do that?
A: i need clear photos of you.. in swimwear, no poses, no heavy lighting.. just simple clear snaps like the one below. i need these to be current, not 2 months ago.. If your looking to be cast in a job. then I must see how you look NOW..
Q: Can we do a TFP (time for print)?
A: Its possible yes, because I test shoot any model I could potentially use for a clients job. Unless your a professional (and I mean professional, not self claimed fitness model on Facebook) then you don't need to, as you should have a folio already
Q: Why do you wan a snap shot.. i have a folio of shots from other photographers?
A: Because your folio of work could be and 95% of the time, totally photoshopped so i need to see how you look in reality, not how you look after photoshop!
Q: Whats a test shoot? Why do you do them?
A: A test shoot is a short informal location shoot ( or studio ) so i can work out how you go in front of the camera!. you might be a natural, you might need training you could also be a train wreck.. I need to know for myself, not just what another photographer thinks of your abilities!
Q: Do i get shots from the test shoot!
Q: I'm coming for a shoot.. can i bring my girlfriend/boyfriend? The will sit quietly in the corner!
A: ABSOLUTELY NOT! you're and adult!! I have had times in the past when I have allowed girls to come watch, and they giggle or distract the model. or complain about being bored, and even told me that they don't want their BF/GF wearing that product or doing that pose. its very very annoying.. so NO.. unless your under 18 and coming for a test shoot or model shoot to join an agency, then you must bring a guardian / parent
