Recently we have been focusing our efforts on trying to help up and coming models within the modelling community sell and promote themselves in an effective way. Sometimes selling yourself can be tough, especially in an industry such as ours, where there are a lot of people what just want to talk about themselves until they are blue in the face. Self-promotion is important, but it is equally important not to come across as a self-obsessed narcissist that only
Self-promotion is important, and if you’re not going to back yourself then who the hell is? The thing is, how do you go about it effectively without coming across as a complete asshole and alienate the very people your are trying to impress?

Many modelling agencies have strict criteria that they have for their models. Not all agencies operate in this way, but the fact is that the majority of them do. This makes it important to ensure that you tick all the boxes if you want to make it as a successful model. Thankfully, commonly held beliefs of beauty and what makes a person beautiful are changing for the better, and now it may not always be necessary to have perfect teeth. Dental
There have been an increasing number of people looking at the fashion industry and its impact on the environment. The global fashion industry is responsible for around 5% of all manmade greenhouse gases, and with that amount set to grow every year, people are concerned that the industry simply does not care.

There was a time when models represented perfect humans with no blemishes or eyesores, but thankfully this stereotype is changing.

If you are a live subject photographer such as a model photographer or lifestyle photographer, then the chances are you shoot on a digital medium. Today the digital camera lets professionals do some pretty impressive things, both during the photo shoot and after words in post-production.
