MODELING SESSION FAQ
Why do models need to take the Meyer-Briggs Type Indicator test?
The MBTI Test is given to models who wish to work with me, and make it easier for me to understand how the interaction will go, where the session will be and what I can expect.
I don't have a perfect body. Can I still be a model?
First, I do not believe that there is a "perfect body." Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. While you may not think your body is perfect, the fact of the matter is SOMEONE out there will. Different body types represent REAL people, and are what make pictures interesting! That said, while you do not have to have a "perfect" body you DO have to be comfortable with your body. You MUST be able to get in front of a camera uninhibited.
What does TFPP stand for?
TFPP, in the modeling-photographer relationship world stands for Time for Pics/Portfolio. This means that there is no cost to either the photographer or the model. Quite simply the model and photographer work together to build each others portfolio with no expectation of monetary gain.
What is the point of modeling if I'm not being paid for it?
Easy, Young Grasshopper. That is a great question, but it also raises a question for the photographer: what's the point of making pictures if I'm not being paid for it? The answer is, of course, loving what one does and the first stepping stone. While the model's goal is to become recognized, so is the photographers.
Okay, so then why offer paid sessions still if you're offering them for free?
Paid sessions and modeling sessions are MUCH different. The modeling session must meet specific criteria. The model must be willing to give the photographer complete control of the session, including every detail, subject, location and concept. With a paid session, I collaborate with clients, and they choose the subjects.
