What category is this image? And I'm not really talking about just on GG. I've got a number of images I'd call "Fantasy" images. Where would the world of photography put those kind of images?

I called them editorial here, because I figure the only people who would use these images in publication would be to illistrate some some story.

Right now this image is the first one you see when you open my portfolio. It is universally loved by those I've shown my portfolio to. But I've been told it would hurt me if I showed it to a modeling agency.

I don't know why nobody has a "cool" category; that's clearly where this one goes...

Looks more like Goth style to me, but what do I know. I'm just a cowboy from Texas.

I'm shooting a model this weekend and every photo she has pointed me to, where I can get a feel for the shoot, says that this is Alternative. I think there is a fine line between alternative and goth and unfortunately my eye isn't trained enough yet to really know. The only difference that I see is that alternative has some color in the clothing and goth is all black. Heck, if this was my photo I'd just call it MINE and let the world of those who think they know sort it out. Of course I'm lazy that way. Great photo though!

PoDunk:

You are probably right. I'd kind of forgotten alternative.

The reason I care is because I'd like to market myself as a comercial/fashion photographer. Doing that means I need to show my book to people in these areas and they need to see the kind of stuff they want to buy. So I have to figure out where my stuff fits.

But since my first tear was in Gothic Beauty, maybe I should look into doing more Alternative/Goth work.
