BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO
Book a shoot with a Professional Glamour or Fashion Photographer. Photo from the Mall, School Pictures, Cell Phone, Wal-Mart and other Retail store don't fit in your Portfolio book.
If you're in Eastern North Carolina, Book your shoot with me today and start your portfolio http://renaldocreative.com/contact
Discuss bringing an Escort to the Photo Shoot with your Photographer or Avoid bringing escort to your Photo Shoot. When models bring an escort I normally put the escort to work. Only work with a photographer you trust. Ask for reference or testimonies. Escorts can get in the way and destroy the photo shoot. Also don't assume that a female Photographer is safer to work with than a male Photographer. Ask for reference or testimonies from female photographer. Male photographer got a bad rep from GWC Guy with Cameras. Normally fake photographer that don't care about Photography. Call the photographer before the shoot or meet in person. Keep in touch with the photographer and a family member. Until you get home safe.

"It was pretty brutal and, yeah, it was racist," he added. "But things opened up a lot by Paris, so I paid it no mind."
Mr. Sutton was one of 24 models in a show whose casting, for once, reflected some ethnic diversity. It is early days in New York's Fashion Week, but already there are signs that the recent industry habits of exclusion may be undergoing a shift. Call it the Obama effect, if you will.
"Oh, it's totally about Obama," said Marcus Lloyd, a 22-year-old African American model from Dallas. "I remember my agent was like, ...If Obama does become president, there's going to be a lot more work for you guys."'
