Modeling photos: for fun or for real?
Opposite to what you see in the media, for print modeling and commercial modeling taming it down and being less sexy, less artistic and revealing in photos is actually best. Many brands just want to see a nice looking friendly looking girl..not all the extra stuff.
MySpace is not a place to market yourself as a model! Remember this!
....commercial print photos should be more about pesonality, laughter, and fresh face beauty shots. Sure sometimes ads for haircare or cosmetics are more artistic, but typically a fresh face and a natural pose is what the agency wants to see. Because the clients, brands, magazine wants to see you as you -to know what they are dealing with...without the creative makeup actually.
The Internet is full of interesting creativing sexy photos but these are not what an agency wants to see actually. That is amateur...playful..but not going to lead a girl to real modeling.
