Since it was brought up in Don's former post, I thought I'd turn the tables on the photographers in a new post.

[ QUOTE ]
Okay for the sake of us photogs learning from the Models.

Here are few questions..


What makes photographer someone who you loved to work with. what does that photographer possess that you really enjoyed bout him/her.

What makes a photographer that you will never work with him/her ever again???

Besides the obvious great images..what do you expect from a photographer?

When looking at a portfolio what do you look for that would make you decide not to work with that photographer?

Of all the photographers you ever worked with do you have a favorite? and Why?

Now the Biggie....Pick Ten photographers from GG only, that you havent worked with, that you would love to work with and list them in order from 1-10 and tell why you would like to work with them.

[/ QUOTE ]

This was the original post from Don, now let's just switch it around for the photographers.

Interesting, the photographers seemed earger enough to see the reverse of Don's thread, but now nobody will step up? For clarity sake, on this thread, replace all of the "photographer" and replace it with "model" and then answer the questions from the photographers perspective about what is expected of models, etc...

They need to be relaxed and fun. Interested in creating something cool.

What makes a model that you will never work with him/her ever again???

She didn't show up! Makes unreasonable demands. Poor pre/post communication.

Besides the obvious great images..what do you expect from a model?

Flexibility. No I don't mean the ability to put her feet behind her head. I mean a willingness to try different stuff. Creativity.

When looking at a portfolio what do you look for that would make you decide not to work with that model?

Demands for money with nothing but webcams. Anything that seems like an attitude. A stupid pseudonym.

I'm almost always willing to work with a model, even one with only webcam pictures, if she's nice and doesn't think she's "all that."

Of all the models you ever worked with do you have a favorite? and Why?

My favorite model right now is Shelli. She takes great pictures, and is fun to work with. On a recent shoot she tried to run to another location in 8 inch platform heels and fell on her butt. Her immediate reaction was to burst out laughing. (Mine was to freak out that she might have hurt herself).

Now the Biggie....Pick Ten models from GG only, that you havent worked with, that you would love to work with and list them in order from 1-10 and tell why you would like to work with them.

Alicia Rachel
Taylor Delfino
Toni Michelle
And pretty much any other model who regularly posts.
Tiana Hunter
Trixie Monroe

Think I've got a theme going with Texas redheads.

That's not ten but it gets the idea across.

There. I showed who has the cajoles among photographers by being first.

i was in the shower when you posted this reverse-of-don's thread. i'll take the bait.

1. i don't look at the photo-qualities of a model's images. there's plenty of models who have pics that suck and i want to shoot them. in fact, i often want to shoot the ones "i want to shoot" who have pics that suck more than the ones i want to shoot that have pics that are really good. and of the one's i want to shoot who have great images, i want to shoot them in ways they haven't been shot before. i want to show other facets of them. i want them out of their comfy box. what makes a model a model i want to shoot? she should appeal to me. yep, that means personally appealing. and i probly mean "personally appealing" in a very primal way or in an aesthetic way. i know i'll throw more of my skills at creating a vision of her that appeals to me if the subject of that vision appeals to me. does that make sense? doesn't mean i cant take a great image of a model i don't find personally appealing--i can--but the question is about models i personally want to work with.

2. divas, bitches, flakes.

3. everything she expects of me: professionalism, creativity, willingness to be daring, flexibility, dedication to achieving the end result, i.e., a great image, and, maybe most importantly, the willingness and ability to project emotion! (which often means shedding some inhibitions and being willing to feel like she's looking like an idiot or uncharacteristically unlike her normal self.)

4. a look that simply doesn't appeal to me on almost any level.

5. kori, cuz i'll be in a ****load of trouble if i even hint at anyone else.

6. not in any order and i know i'm gonna forget some cuz i have a scattered brain-- hailey, jackiM, ginger, kellyG, deann, the celtic chink, taylor, mysterimages (cuz i wanna see her face), pavlov'sbitch, katya, brooklyn, glamchic, and finally but not leastly you, bratt, and not cuz you authored this thread but because you got something, baby, and i find it intriguing. ok. sheesh... there's more and i just counted and i'm already past ten. so many models, so little time!!!!!!!!!!

[/ QUOTE ]


Ok, I guess I am one of the first to answer.. I will start by listing In NO particular order the models I would love to have in front of my camera.

Ms. Toni - aka "Brattitude" - especially for her attitude and smile.
Ms. JackiM - for her attitude and eyes...
ThrillKitten
Apryll
BarbieD

There are also two blondes that Marc Gratn has posted that I would love to shoot, but can't remember their names.

I also want to shoot a number of others that are not on GG.

There are a number of things that I look for in a model that I want to shoot..

Maybe the look I see in their eyes.

Maybe the way they hold themselves in some image, that I think would look good in something I have in my mind.

It might be that I see an image, and think of some other image that I think would suit their look.

Sometimes I just like what I have seen of their work, and I want to shoot them as well... not cause everyone else does... just a feeling I get in my brain that says.. yeppers... that's the one..

I like shooting older more mature women most. They are not into the "games" and "image" trips that way too many of the younger ones are. (not that all younger models do this, but many do).

Which model I have shoot would I love to shoot with again? Two come to mind.. and that would be KellyG and ShawnaB. I hope that I get another chance with Kelly, but I dont think I will with Shawna.

What do I expect from the Model? Willingness to have fun, willing to work with me to get the best shots we can. and above all else.. come to the shoot ready, willing and no hangover or "Migraine"

I guess that there are my answers..

It's tough not to get those damn thongs in a twist, sometimes it's hard to tell which end is up, especially when you're getting dressed in the dark [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Well i'll try to answer these.

1.On time and ready to shoot. Actually enjoys modeling, not in it just for the money.

2.No call no show. Everything is set up ready to go, and not even the respect of letting me know they won't be able to make it. Or if i've taken the time to send a message showing interest in working together, at least the respect of an answer saying no thanks shows more profesionalism than ignoring someone.

3.Don't know that I expect anything other than be prepared for what were gonna shoot.

4.Well i'll shoot just about anybody, so I guess unless they say "paid only" I won't work with them, I do this for fun because I enjoy it.

5.Don't really have a favorite, as long as we get along and have fun shooting i'll work with ya again.

6.Now your gonna make me list 10 models i'd like to work with!! Well are there 10 that want to work with me? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Seriously theres alot of talent on GG i'd like the opprotunity to work with, when I see a new portfolio from a local model i'll usually send a note to em, sometimes it works sometimes not.

I'm easy to work with, and like to have fun on a shoot. As long as the model is on time and ready to shoot it'll be a good day.

Here ya go

[ QUOTE ]
What makes a model someone who you loved to work with. what does that model possess that you really enjoyed bout him/her.

[/ QUOTE ]

A model who understands how to pose, how to move, and how to do the subtle things that change a look. A model who is proportioned, from a physical standpoint. Someone who is smart and has a sense of humor. (I don't "do stupid"). Someone I connect with. Someone who is enthusiastic.

[ QUOTE ]
What makes a model that you will never work with him/her ever again???

[/ QUOTE ] Someone who's just showing up for the check. Someone who doesn't know what common courtesy is. Someone who comes in with a list of demands. Someone who feels that they did you a favor by showing up, even though I may have selected them for the job.

[ QUOTE ]
Besides the obvious great images..what do you expect from a model?

[/ QUOTE ] I expect them to communicate in a professional and timely fashion (before, during, and after a shoot). I expect them to be on time and to stay for the time contracted for. I expect them to contribute and collaborate, be it with me, the client, or the art director.

[ QUOTE ]
When looking at a portfolio what do you look for that would make you decide not to work with that model?

[/ QUOTE ] Piercings and tatoos. There are exceptions but, in general, I'll take a pass on ink and holes in the body. 50 images with the same expression/look.

[ QUOTE ]
Of all the model you ever worked with do you have a favorite? and Why?

[/ QUOTE ] Cindy Crawford (yes THE Cindy Crawford). She is smart, professional, and funny. She knows more about photography than 90% of the photographers who have photographed her. And she's amazingly gracious. If a $10,000/day model doesn't need to cop an attitude, then no one else does, either. She was deliriously wonderful to work with.

[ QUOTE ]
Now the Biggie....Pick Ten models from GG only, that you havent worked with, that you would love to work with and list them in order from 1-10 and tell why you would like to work with them.

[/ QUOTE ] This is hard for me because I like to know a bit about who I'm working with and get to understand their personality. I do a fair amount of leg work ahead of time when planning a shoot, especially if I'm shooting for a personal project of mine. That being said, there are only two models that I can think of off the top of my head that I know without a doubt I'd have fun working with:

1) Reese Farraday. Brains, beauty, and self-deprecating humor all rolled into one.

2) Hailey. You just know she's not pondering what you're pondering.

I'll do some thinking and see if I can come up with 8 more whom I haven't worked with.

[/ QUOTE ]

Okay you models thought this was a tuff one for you...its really tuff for me.
Because: alot of the models have worked with such greats that I dont think I could do them the justice they have gotten with some of the greats!


But I'll list them on the basis I could learn alot from them.

1. Erin "Glam Chic" Besides her obvious Beauty,She gets my goofy sense of humor and understands that Im not a Top Photogod!

2. Kori. Because she's already Worked with Jimmy and I could pry some top secret methods out of her....and she's smokin hot infront of the camera making my Job that much easier.

3. Taylor, Okay Okay I know Mhickey is her favorite and thats a tuff standard to live up too...but she just seems so comfortable infront of the camera.

4. Reese. She's totally Kickass Gorgeous Great Sense of humor and I could learn alot from her about make up, posing and she has alot of energy.

5. Brattitude, Stunning and I think she would be great to colaborate on creative ideas.

6 Devlin "Christian" would love to have Male models in my port and who has a better eye for a good image than Devlin, the poor guy I appointed to critique my work from a models point of view!

7. Chris. Again the Male Model aspect but this time with a great sense of humor and fun energy, not to mention..six pack abs,

8 BrooklynVDW...she has a great look and hasnt been spoiled by the Great Photogods and I would like to see what I can do with an up and coming model..

9. Orlena...She has a great look and a very professional attitude.

10. Margo, another gorgeous up and coming that would love to work with but Jimmy's beat me to it....now try to live up to that standard..good lord.

11. Samantha Aka "Sam" the more I see that lingerie and wig, just makes me buckle at the knees and get this strong urge to put him/her in a well and make a body cover from his/her skin. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

12. the impossible Dream Alicia!!

I could go on for days with a list of models from GG I would like to work with, If I missed you, I apologize its my mid life senility!!

Don.
