The Model Pages

This page is devoted to the local photographic models I have worked with over the years. Frequently the same model repeatedly, as once a reliable and capable model is found, we want to use them again rather than risk the unknown. All of the models featured here are reliable and capable. Click on an image for a larger view, or to be taken to that model’s page. Frequently people ask questions such as ‘Do you have to be tall to be a model?’.  To answer this question, we will need to talk about the different kinds of modelling jobs. The type of model most people think of first is the fashion, catwalk, or editorial model. These are the models in the public eye, seen in big fashion parades and expensive magazines modelling clothes for international designers. The best are highly sought after and very highly paid. Generally these models are tall, above 5’9″ or taller. Fashion models generally don’t have tattoos or piercings as this can restrict the brands they can work for. Most models are commercial or photographic models. You won’t know their names or see them on television, but you will see their faces on packaging, in online and print catalogs including catalogs that you get in your mailbox (the real mailbox, the one at the end of your driveway), and in advertisements everywhere. These models don’t have any size or height restrictions. Sometimes models can specialise in small niches: for example, as hand models for jewelry or foot models for shoes, but they need to have very photogenic hands or feet, and live in a place where there is a lot of demand. That means London, Paris, Milan, New York, or Sydney. Sometimes its an actress who gets the modelling role in a TV commercial, like Ngaire Dawn Fair for Ford, or Gabrielle Miller for Trivago. Not everyone can make the crossover from photographic still to video, and models with actiing experience have the edge here. Local models do break into the international fashion scene from time to time. Lily Nova of Adelaide agency Finesse recently had her international debut at Milan Fashion Week, walking for Gucci. So it does happen. In the meantime, there are other genres of modelling. Commercial as mentioned before, but also glamour, and alternative, where tattoos and piercings are actually desirable!
