I have had an overwhelming response to my advert for models on Facebook. Granted I offered them £10 an hour which is higher than minimum wage and not really the norm with photographers, who usually offer photos in lieu of payment, but I just thought that maybe my models wouldn’t want photos in my style and would prefer a bit of money to spend. I am feeling really excited to get started with my beautiful models and creating some works towards my qualification panel, and let’s not forget the Image of the Month which I am seriously addicted to.
My advert was for children because I already have some photos which can be used towards my panel in this area. I enjoy working with children which no doubt comes from my teaching background. There is such an uncomplicated beauty and innocence about them: their expressions are so genuine and you always know where you stand.
My next sessions will be for adults, something I find a little more daunting. Hopefully I will get some relaxed adults who don’t mind a laugh or two.
