I hear a lot about how lucky I am to work with such beautiful women. I don’t disagree. I’ve been very fortunate. But it’s not all luck. I have several rules that I adhere to that greatly increase my chances of getting that first shoot with a model as well as follow up shoots. So, in the spirit of sharing the wealth I’m going to post up some of the Rules that guide me before, during and after a shoot. They won’t guarantee success, but they won’t hinder it either. Rules #1-3 are presented in order of importance. All others are tied at #4. Feel free to opine. Whether you agree or disagree I’d love to hear your opinions, from photographers, MUA’s and models alike.
