Modeling Photography Types

I’d like to refer models to read this article regarding modeling types, not specifically regarding photography only as this post would be. As modeling types may be assumed it would be the same with modeling photography types, it is not. Modeling types available for work for models can vary from video, photography, and runway or promotional. 

Before we get into the different types of model photography I’ll get into the basics with broader terms.

Portrait Photography When looked in a very broad sense portrait photography is basically when any human subject is in a frame, from candid, posed, semi-candid (staged), etc. 

Model Photography When looked in a broad sense of the word it is basically when a person is modeling. Either as another person, character, or products such as clothing, accessories, etc. this is modeling for a photoshoot. 

Read more where I originally posted it on, my primary fashion advertising website blog.

This post will be added to the Photographer to Model blog series. Check out more on this series here.

How to Find Models in a Weak Market.

This is an Update Post to blog post "Business: The Math Behind How to Best Qualify a Freelance Pro Model"

Looking back at this post from 9-10 months ago, I still think everything is true but I'd like to add some other details I've learned since.

Geographic Location and available Recruitment Pool.

A geographic location has huge effects on the recruitment pool bad and good. Some areas are bad and some areas are good. When its good, such as supply of models (good for photographers), that means there is a nice size amount of models available in the freelance world for paid work or/and TF work. When its bad, its the other way around where even paid models in the area are not existent and at times the only option for photographers is to recruit from outside of the area for models and can cause for increased in costs for the photographer/art director for the shoot.

WOW Share! 31: Posing Inspiration

I thought this was a WOW Share because it inspires not just new comer models, but as well photographers on what can be possible and hopefully inspire a model to possibly do what is performed below in the video by the super model CoCo Rocha!
