What should you do if you can't find a SB photographer...

Q. What should I do if I can't work with a staff photographer?
If you have an amazing photographer you are interested in working with, please have them contact: to receive the proper paperwork.

Most models will not have a professional photographer at their disposal, which is completely understandable, you may use a trusted friend who knows their way around a camera.

You can also try finding a photographer on Model Mayhem or MySpace.

This brings up some very simple, common sense things that you should all do to ensure your safety and comfort when working with new photographers.

1. Check references and portfolio. If you do not like someones work or can not find any references for them, work with someone else. E-mail the person that you are interested in working with and let them know exactly what you are looking for in a photographer before meeting with them. Send a few of your favourite photos as examples of style. Figure out the theme that you want to convey in your set and have a clear cut idea of what you want your set to reflect, make sure the photographer can carry this out. This is your set to share your personality with the site. Come prepared, practice posing and facial expressions in the mirror. A good photographer is very helpful in getting a set accepted but if you aren't prepared there is not a whole lot they can do.

2. Have an initial meeting in a public place. This way you can figure out if this person is going to creep you out, or if you will feel comfortable taking your clothes off in front of them (for suggested nudity shoots). If you get a weird feeling ask someone else to shoot the set for you. If you are not comfortable with a photographer you will not look comfortable in your set and it will not come out well and will probably not be accepted no matter how talented the photographer is with the camera.

3. Bring a friend to your shoot. Safety first. Even if the person sits in the other room it is better to have someone that you know and trust around just in case.

4. Any asshat with a camera can claim to be a nude photographer, check references and portfolio. We do our best to ensure the professionalism of everyone that we work with. Anyone that we recommend directly will be legit, but that doesn't mean that all of the people volunteering to take pics or the person you meet at a member gathering or on a model resource site is going to be. Use common sense and always err on the side of caution.

We now have models, photographers and MUA’s from all over Australia & NZ. It is hard for us to know about all of the creepy people or the talented ones out there. Use common sense and hopefully you will have a great experience. We are working on a new photographer system to help recommend people, but in the meantime use your best judgment and work with people who you like and are comfortable with.

That's right, you don't need to use a photographer on the forum either. As long as they're happy to sign our release form and they use a proper SLR and have work you are inspired by then go ahead and contact a photographer of your choice Smile

We've have quite a few models with completed sets so we're getting there!! Launch verrrrrryy soon!!!
Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
