This has always been an unsaid rule of my photography but I shoot the most beautiful women I can find. No one could possibly disagree with this. I mean it's painfully, "hit me over the head with a bat" obvious. I've worked with some of the most beautiful women on Earth.
Do I have to elaborate on why?
Well, for starters I'm a guy. If working with beautiful isn't one of the driving forces for what I do, then I wouldn't be writing about this and you wouldn't be reading this. Hell, if it weren't for gorgeous women, you probably wouldn't even be interested in photography :)
Sure that's tongue-in-cheek. Of course, there's always landscape... because shooting rocks is so sexy. The only canyons I wanna see are... ;)
In all seriousness do you think my pictures would be half as good or even 1% as good if I shot ugly people? Remember those pictures of me on flickr? I had to dress like a clown to get anyone to look at pictures of me. Yeah, that's right. The one with the red shorts hiked up to my neck.
But I digress. The point is that your subject makes your image. The better the model, the better the picture. My images are 99% model and 1% me. Girls like Amanda. Her shoot with me was her first photoshoot and she does this:
Really, do you think I had any part in making this image? Amanda wakes up in the morning and when she's brushing her teeth there's a goddess staring at her through the mirror.
Yes, girls like Amanda make my job easy. I could be a monkey with a camera. Hell, I could be Terry Richardson and still get great shots ;P as long as I shot girls like Amanda.
When you work with goddesses, you can do no wrong. I promise you this. There are certain girls you simply can't take a bad shot of. And on those days/shoots you will feel like a god. And those pictures will be immortal.
Choose your models wisely.
