Advice to New Models

Do you dream about becoming a model?

Then go for it! advises Matt Campbell of Atlanta Performance Photography.

‘There’s really not a cutoff for telling a girl she can’t be a model,” says Maxim style shooting specialist Matt Campbell, one of top photographers who shoots for Exceptional Faces. “If she has a desire to model, she can find a niche. It might be Goth, or BBW, or swimsuit or runway, but she can find something to specialize in. It may not be mainstream, but it’s something she wants to do.”

AP Photography offers this advice to aspiring models:
1) Remember, it’s a cutthroat business. Be careful who you trust. Work only with reputable people who can offer references.
2) Practice your poses in the mirror – often.
3) Study, understand and practice facial expressions. You may have a great posing technique and can spoil the image with a frumpy or goofy look on your face.
4) Ask yourself: Why do you want to model?

AP Photography can help new and experienced models plan out a portfolio. Visit www.atlphoto.net to view Matt’s work.
