Work with as many photographers as you can and learn from each shoot. This is your apprenticeship.


Choose your photographers carefully and look at thier images-A pro isn't necessarily so and neither is an Amateur either in attitude or images. -This is sensible.

Always answer messages even with a polite no if necessary-This is your reputation. Member Image

Try and get images that reflect all your levels.This shows your versatility. Member Image

Write some information on your profile but not " i like partying with my friends" -This is your CV Member Image

Don't do anything your not comfortable with despite whatever the reasons.-This is your peace of mind. Member Image

If your not comfortable at a shoot walk away-straight away.-This is your safety. Member Image

Enjoy what you do-this is the reason you do it. Member Image Member Image


Sure there will be lots more but that should help get you started. Member Image

Everything ^^ he ^^ said, check references and take it as far as YOU want to.  Do some research, understand the basics....chaperones, model release, use of images, levels etc.  There are some useful links at the bottom of the page.  Read them all!

Keep abreast of the forums, check and respond to emails (as already stated) and don't commit to anything you don't want to follow through. 

Keep it real but have fun while you are doing it.  It's addictive, but don't let it take over!!

Most importantly of all, understand what you are posing for, what the images are likely to look like, where they are going to be shown and ask yourself if you are happy with that.  If the answer is yes, crack on bearing in mind the caveats above.

Most important of all, keep communication open.  Talk to the people you are going to work with - even to the point of sending a text on the day of the shoot saying "I am on my way".  Great comms is, in my book, half way to being a potential model.  And finally, when you get home let the photographer know, they can turn off their worry beads!  (or is that just me?)
