Glamour Photography - Where Do I Find Glamour Models To Shoot?

Jan 30, 2008
Where Do I Find Glamor Models to Shoot is the question I hear most in this genre. Glamor photography is sexy and romantic--erotic without pornography. However, models for such portfolios aren't easy to find. Glamor model wannabes are a dime a dozen. They generally lack experience, knowledge and the innate sense of what creates a great photo shoot with a great photographer. Some of them are on their way to becoming great, but just haven't arrived yet. And others have made their way into the world of Boudoir Photography in their attempts to find a niche for their work.

Boudoir photography is generally reserved for the more intimate and sensual displays of a personal nature, such as the array a new bride might want to give her groom as a wedding gift. It revolves around romantic and sensual themes, and the emphasis is on personal. The female form is celebrated in a romantic and sexy way. Taken a step beyond the personal portfolio a bride might want to create, a good glamor model will know how to create personal and inviting poses like those in a boudoir shoot, as she works with a good photographer who understands his business and has developed good photography skills.

The big question for photographers is, How do I get great models to shoot without having to pay high dollar prices for great models? Good glamor photography is generally handled and distributed by a few big names in the industry; their work is sold to magazines and publications. Good photographers attract good models. The problem is how to attract good models and build your portfolio without leveraging yourself beyond your means.

Mandarich Models has found some invaluable resources on the internet. Profiles, pictures and networking are all available on web sites such as www.modelmayhem.com and www.omp.com and www.myspace.com . Chatting with other photographers and models on blogs and in chat rooms helps identify potential models, or may simply open the door for networking with people and groups that will become resources in the future. And if you find a model that may help you create a great portfolio, a little schmoozing doesn't hurt!

Glamor or Boudoir photography is different from other genres because it emphasizes the model rather than products, fashion or environment. Finding great models is the first step!

A final word for the average woman in our readership... You don't have to be a model to love seeing yourself in a soft and sensual portrait. Whether the one holding the camera is a professional photographer or your friend or spouse or significant other, you love seeing your persona captured in a photo. You don't have to be 'beautiful' as described by a beauty magazine. Photographing a woman in her natural state, with the emphasis on soft and sensual, good posing, carefully defined lighting and effective communication between picture-taker and model all results in incredible and tasteful artistic photos she will treasure forever.
