National Day of Service and Remembrance

Let us remember & honor all those affected by the tragedy of 9/11. September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of efforts, originally launched in 2002 that promotes community service on 9/11 as an annual and forward-looking tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. http://bit.ly/2CEmRxJ  #NeverForget #RemembranceDay #PatriotDay #DayofService

Safety in Freelance Modeling is priority one!

When you are bringing someone there as a safety precaution, please convey to them that they are only there for that. They are not there to direct, interject, or assist with the shoot unless asked for. A lot of people have not told the photographer who they are bringing and they end up calling the shoot short due to disruptions and comments made by the other person. Tell your safety person what you are shooting beforehand. That way there are No surprises when the shoot commences. Again, communication is key to make a shoot a smooth success.

Checking Out References

References need to be checked when working with a new photographer. You need to know who you are working with. Also, to make sure that they have the reputation that they have given to you in the beginning. If you are unsure of shooting with someone, ask questions. Communicate. If you need to, cancel the shoot but, convey the reasons as a professional.  Perception.  People can always make fake emails but, also get phone numbers for former models. And at all shoots, take someone to be there on your behalf.

Freelance Modeling is a Fluid Business

Modeling is a fluid business. With the rash of no shows and no calls that have been happening on both side of the camera, it is imperative that the role of communication is open to make sure that everyone is on the same page. Make sure you have actual contact information on the other party. Don’t rely on messenger or texts. Make that call and confirm the time and place. If you have to cancel, please give as much notice as possible as you want them to be able to fill that spot that you are not able to. It is the professional thing to do.
