Dear (new'ish) Photographer,
My name is Model. I would love it if when you shoot me you take these things into consideration to achieve the greatest effect for us both: - Male or female, give some playful banter. It makes me so happy when I am in the company of someone who knows how to laugh. If you can laugh at yourself then it’ll make me laugh too and we’ll both feel more relaxed.
- Don’t laugh at me. Don’t give me negative vibes by pulling funny faces, giggling at an awkward angle or allowing me to think I am anything other than the sensational creature my confidence needs to believe I am.

Dear (new’ish) Model,
My name is Other Model. I have spent the last couple of years finding out a few things that I wish I’d known from the start. Please don’t think I’m patronizing as I mean this only in goodwill, as there is absolutely no gain for me by sharing these cheats. Not all of my points will be valid for you as posing varies in each genre. Just take what you can and ignore the rest. If only one suggestion helps your future career then my time has been well spent…
- Rule one, the mirror is your BFF. Stand there, perfect your poses and learn how your body shapes. The mirror is a perfect tool to show you what the camera can see - try to imagine it behind your photographers head when shooting and always consider what can be seen from that angle. For example, if your foot is closest to the lens, it is worth remembering that your foot is going to the largest thing in the picture….and nobody wants to be remembered as Bigfoot…

I’d like to start this article by telling you that I have met over 350 models in my career. I have met famous Models, as well as beginners. The Models that work hard, practice posing, study things like camera awareness and lighting awareness, and of course aren't bad looking, seem to be the ones that succeed in this business. Succeeding in this business doesn't mean that you are walking a runway in Milan. It means that you're creating a second income for yourself, or possibly a living, doing something that you truly have a passion for. If you are relying on one person to make your modeling goals happen, you may find yourself sitting more than posing. Self promotion is a huge part of being or becoming anything you want to be. Self Promotion for Models is not any different. Working as a model involves a LOT of self promotion. (Build a Killer Online Modeling or Photographer Portfolio)
