“I don’t want people to notice the ‘technique’ in my photographs because there isn’t any, apart from what my camera gives me. I want people to notice the subject not the lighting or whether or not my model is in focus.”—
I'd love to be a model but I'm not tall enough :/// how to get noticed? .. :s
If you check many of the very top model agencies in NYC and Europe you’ll find a surprising number of ‘shorter’ girls. below 170.check out Anja Konstantinova. http://www.priscillas.com.au/details.aspx?modelid=523397&subid=1763&mainsubid=1763&nav=0&sexid=2&indx=) she is around 164. Don’t let your insecurities stop you reaching your goals. You have nothing to lose but your destiny. It’s becoming increasingly harder to ‘get noticed’. because of the deluge of girls wanting to be models, find a photographer that will show your character, photos that get you noticed, not the photographer.
"I have of late—but
wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth, forgone all
custom of exercises; and indeed it goes so heavily
with my disposition that this goodly frame, the
earth, seems to me a sterile promontory, this most
excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave
o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted
with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to
me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours.
What a piece of work is a man! how noble in reason!
how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how
express and admirable! in action how like an angel!
in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the
world! the paragon of animals! And yet, to me,
what is this quintessence of dust? man delights not
me: no, nor woman neither, though by your smiling
you seem to say so.”
“Fashion photographer isn’t strictly about clothes, Nudity plays a huge part in ‘fashion’ photography. Style and image are what young people relate to now. A model has to have the ability to make people want to fuck her, want be like her. Clothes can be a hindrance when you’re trying to reveal the models character, so often the model doesn’t like what she’s wearing and feels restricted. Make a girl feel confident and comfortable naked and you’ve got a winning formula.”—
“I remember when i first started out in photography all those stupid fucking rules, mostly forgotten now, thank fuck!. I recall photographers making sure that the film they bought was from the same batch so the colour would be consistent! What a load of fucking rubbish, You shouldn’t do this, you can’t do that, FUCK OFF! Rules suppressing peoples natural creativity. Thank fuck all that has changed, Now you can do what the fuck you like, blurry, out of focus, no one cares, consequently, we see millions of amazing photographs that might have been lost 20 years ago. Thank fuck times have changed.”—
