SHORT CHICKS ROCK!
This month I am holding 3 photo contest book giveaways for my book Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model.
The first one is all about Jewelry. I am currently updating my portfolio and working on some jewelry shots.
Also jewelry modeling can be put in the area of "parts modeling" which includes using your hands to model rings and accessories. Think you can put your ears to work to model earrings? Got a nice neck? Put it to use in modeling. Why not, use what you've got. So look at some jewelry ads from close-ups beauty shot to close-ups of hands, because the first photo contest is based on modeling jewelry.
You don't have to be tall to model jewelry.
(You can send full body, or close-up on neck, wrist, or close up of hands, like a jeweley catalog or advertisment.)
Any type of jewelry welcome.
Submit 1-3 photos of yourself modeling jewelry to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The model who best shows a jewelry shot with commercial print style, will win a signed copy of my book Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model, send photos by Monday April 11, 2011 by 12 p.m. EST!
The winner will be featured on my Petite Modeling Tips blog and receives a signed copy of Short Stuff: on the job with an x-small model and I will give you personal tips on your photos, comp card and submitting to agencies and marketing yourself as well.
If you are based in NYC I might even show the best submissions to my modeling agencies for consideration as well.
Keep it clean, keep is tasteful, keep it classy, keep it timeless, and remember height isn't everything when you notice how your other assets can be marketable. :)
