professional studio/photographer for a mature 'model' book in London, any reccomendations?
I am thinking about having some professional photos taken, with a good photographer, and create a book (model style iykwim) I want to avoid big busy studios and lots of people. However I have few problems
1 - I am shy in front of strangers and hate posing 2 - My wardrobe is shit and I can't put clothes never mind accessories together so I would need to borrow stuff from someone who can help me create a look 3 - I am rubbish at styling my hair and doing my own make up so I would need someone to do it for me
4 - I don't have much money but don't mind paying a reasonable price if good results are guaranteed.
I'm not quite sure what exactly is your goal for this venture - presumably not aiming to be a 'working' model due to the issues you describe.
If what you're looking for are some nice professional photos of you, how about looking at one of those 'makeover' studios. I know some of them look cheesy but I've seen a few friends do it - they will do hair, make up and styling for you and some of the results have been lovely.
It's designed to be a very confidence building experience, which may be what you're looking for?
Well, I have a very good figure, a beautiful face, interesting hair and nice angles... What is wrong in wanting to have a few nice photos to keep and cherish? What is wrong with wanting to have a nice experience out of my ordinary day to day? I have lovely professional photos taken from my last term at UNI, mainly as a group and I was much younger so shyness wasn't a issue I have 4 stunning professional photos taken on my last month of pregnancy, however, these were done in a big busy studio and it was very impersonal, the photographer was rude and didn't seem to have much experience, out of the loads of photos he took, I chose only 4 and I had a hard time choosing the 4th one tbh.
I have loads of beautiful photos of me taken by my sister and friends but I want to have a studio experience with different looks, style, make up, hair....
If I was so vain and egocentric than I wouldn't have a issue with shyness and posing to strangers Jezzzzzz what is this site becoming? Yes I have good looks but other areas in my life are shit Do you feel better now?
I know google, I have heard of it before. I thought I would get some recommendations here from people that used the service I am looking for I didn't think for a minute this question would cause such reaction tbh I thought Style&Beauty was different than AIBU
But isn't about being good looking, really It is about having a good figure, beautiful face, angles, unusual hair, really, I think it would be fun and a good photographer would be able to take interesting photos...the non professional ones are nice. Well at least in my opinion. Whatever people, sorry for wasting your time, really, I didn't come here for this.
