THE ADDED HUMAN VALUE OF A MODEL

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 28 april 2017

A famous american photographer once wrote that somewhere along the way, many of the models he met became friends and many of his friends became his models.
I can’t remember his name, where I saw that but I can remember his face and his photographs (someone also said that when a journalist has so little information they should shut the fuck up… I’m not a journalist so I’m fine).

Anyways, there are always people (and so models) you have more pleasure working with because of so many reasons : their personality, their energy, their availability, their adaptability etc… In a word, qualities that makes your job smoother, more pleasant and so much better.

Sofia is one of those people I have met along the way that I feel I can rely upon for the few time I have shot with her.
I have certainly worked with more seasoned models who knew their poses and all the rest by the book and still I feel better constructing my portfolio with models such as Sofia because of the human parameter.

And I am talking about constructing a portfolio but I should be talking about enriching a portfolio because I believe this is done throughout all your photographer’s life.
And this is a concept difficult to understand to most people outside of the photography business : a portfolio is built 90% of free collaboration with friends, models, family etc… This is something completely (or almost) separated from your billable activity.
One compliments the other.

Anyways, back to Sofia, she answered present last week when I wanted to shoot something in the wind and she stripped down to a simple monokini when I had difficulties not freezing with my wooly jumper.
She followed me to the bank and got splashed pretty bad, well bad enough to hurt her feet against a rock.

Don’t get me wrong I’m a father of 3 children, and I am a fairly responsible guy.
I wouldn’t put anyone in danger for the sake of a photograph but shit happens anyways.

So this was my lame excuse of a post to start publishing the few photographs I shot of the beautiful and courageous Sofia last week by Playa del Salon in Nerja.
