This lovely young lady and her family joined me for a shoot yesterday, she is considering modelling as a career, so a friend of theirs and mine set up our shoot, did make up hair and styling. I added the floral headwear for a little extra and I think she looks amazing. She battled with strong winds, strong sunshine right in her face and us crazy nuts as well as her parents who I had holding light stands and a reflector, yet she never complained once. I think she could quite possibly have a career in modelling Smile Our next shoot we will aim for a more natural look I think as a contrast. Would love to know your thoughts.

NICE WORK...I don't see why she couldn't make it in modelling, I'm far from an expert but to me she doesn't look totally relaxed in this shot, I think she looks a little tense around the shoulders, whether it was the conditions or nerves or any other reason, but with more experience and confidence that will become natural, there is no reason why not because she's pretty with good skin tones and with your great work going for her.
WHY NOT !!!

thanks Terry
I had a good friend along to help her pose, someone who has modelled for a couple of years and she encouraged her to crouch forwards for a few images, this was a sort of inbetween sitting and crouching. She was teaching her a few fashion poses whilst I was trying to give direction regarding angles in her face, neck and hands. I think she has lots of potential, but we are trying to help make sure that her and her family dont get ripped off, theyre from Poland and also its an industry they have no knowledge of. Ive suggested a couple of the better agencies to them and will help them get a variety of images from other good local photographers to help them start out - I hate it when people considering a modelling career get ripped off by an unscrupulous photographer

A nice girl. The picture is very good, though her arms position looks a little too tense and her hands aren't holding a flower as gracefully as we could have expected. I'm not a professional, of course, but a more natural look and an elegant pose would make this picture look brilliant. She might be not accustomed to looking relaxed in the most uncomfortable poses crouching and coiling, though this will come with time.

A lovely fresh face with full lips which could be put to good use in a sensual but innocent look.
I love the natural setting and the use of the buddleia/ lilac ? for the headdress and for holding.
I wish he rgood luck in what must be a very competitive industry.

A good start for her - and your pictures will always grace any portfolio and help get a career going.

There's the hard work, the travel, the height, the ability to be nice to idiots... We don't know how she'll fare in these areas.

But she has a good look, which is a necessary starting point!

She has the looks to succeed that's for sure. Your photography will help Angi. The lighting and your processing are absolutely top class here.
