6 Photographer things that need to die in 2017

Here’s my list of 6 photographer things that need to die in 2017.
We should all be striving to be better, hopefully this fun list will help you take steps towards that.

50mm lens1. Ditch the nifty fifty.

Yeah the 50mm is a great lens. BUT, if you’re using it 24/7 you’re missing out! Go experiment with other focal lengths, throw a zoom in there, expand your horizons, literally.

2. Group shoots.

Group shoots are fun when you’re a beginner and for many “gigging” models, it’s their life blood. But, if you’ve been to more than 5 group shoots, it’s time to move on. Hire a studio yourself. Experiment. What’s the point of going to a group shoot with 12 (or more) photographers, all using the same props, same backdrops, same model, same poses, same lighting.

Forget that! Who needs 100 slightly different photos of the same model from 12 different photographers?

I mean, I get it. I understand. When you’re new to photography, group shoots are a great way to ease yourself in to photography without spending too much, but come on, you’re past that now. If you’re at a group shoot and you look around to see some guy using his iPhone, or struggling to use a point and shoot, it’s time to move on. This isn’t snobbery, it’s about you progressing as a photographer.

Find yourself a cool location, and go shoot there:

 

3. Shitty backdrops.

Leather. A book case. A Brick wall. They can look cool as backdrops for your photography, but NOT when it’s cheap shit wallpaper, badly slapped on to a temporary wall. Just don’t do it. It never looks good. It always looks fake, the shadows are wrong and more importantly cheapens your final image. Come on, you’re better than that.

While we’re at it, every time I see another photo of a model on a chaise lounge, I think of George.

4. Giving your work away for free.

Your work is good right? So why work for free? Don’t. Ever! No amount of publicity is worth your time for free. Especially for online magazines that are free, but full of adverts. Those advertisers are paying someone, so why aren’t you getting a cut of that dough? Giving your work to online magazines, websites, facebook pages, instagram accounts for free, is madness. You’re allowing someone else to get rich from your time, work and effort. Don’t do that. Concentrate on growing yourself, without giving yourself away for free. As a great man once said “Fuck you, pay me“.

5. Saying you’re “Published”.

This was a thing in the 90’s. Now magazines are dying and any dick with a copy of indesign can create a magazine.

Wow a bizarre fanzine, used your image on page nine! You must instantly update all your profiles to say you’re published! The world must know this important fact! It’s not important. Stop it.

6. Butter skin.

You know what I mean, skin so smoothed it looks like the model has been in an industrial accident, or could body double for Barbie. Yes spots are bad. Bags under eyes sometimes need lightening or removing, but come on. It looks so fake and unreal. I’m not saying you have to use high end, time consuming, frequency separation on all of your images, but surface blur is generally a no no.

Some techniques take seconds:

 

Have I missed any? Send me a message and let me know.

 

Who the hell is Markp?

I’m a full time, professional, “published” photographer, based in the UK. I have been shooting for a little over 10 years. I have worked for tiny companies and some quite large ones. I mainly shoot modern glamour, pinup, boudoir and lingerie but occasionally venture in to the realms of fetish work. Rarely, I also write angry blog posts. I love you guys really though 🙂

Glamour modelling

Glamour modelling focuses solely on sexuality. Therefore, there are no requirements to be a glamour model other than the ability to pose seductively. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men’s magazines, such as Playboy and lads mags, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in movies. However, extremely popular glamour models often transition into commercial print modelling appearing in swimwear and lingerie campaigns.

Fitness or Glamour?

Fitness modeling focuses on displaying a healthy, tone physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscles groups both major and minor groups. The models body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are advertised in magazines. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, there are a lot of athletes who are fitness models. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting these models who typical earn their primary income as commercial models.

Glamour modelling focuses solely on sexuality. Therefore, there are no requirements to be a glamour model other than the ability to pose seductively. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men’s magazines, such as Playboy, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in movies. However, extremely popular glamour models often transition into commercial print modelling appearing in swimwear and lingerie campaigns.

About this cover image:
I designed this magazine cover to ask a question; a question of what is real.

In our age of photoshop and digital manipulation of still images, video and audio, is anything real? Is anything we see, truly a representation of what was there?

Is ink really for life?

Anastacia is a beautiful and talented model, who I really enjoy working with. She is known for being a respected and talented model, and also for being tattooed.

When I started editing this photo, I went through my usual editing steps, skin, eyes, levels, curves, colour etc. Then went a step further, the final product you see on the front cover of this magazine.

If an image can be edited so much that a permanent feature like a tattoo can be removed, is anything we see in today’s media real?

Are the stars and people in the media spot light real, or just a caricature of an ideal?

On a personal note, I love Anastacia’s tattoos and think they are as much a part of her as an arm or leg. When looking at the final cover image, it looks alien to me, that’s not the person I know. It just doesn’t look right with her tattoo’s missing.

How do you relate to the image?

Dum vita est spes est

Did you know T Louise’s arm tattoo “Dum vita est spes est”, means “as long as there is life, there’s hope” in Latin.

Latin is an ancient Italic language originally spoken by the Italic Latins in Latium and Ancient Rome. Along with most European languages, it is a descendant of the ancient Proto-Indo-European language. It originated in the Italian peninsula. Although it is considered a dead language, many modern languages are in fact living continuations of this language. Additionally, many students, scholars, and some members of the Roman Catholic clergy speak it fluently, and it is still taught in some primary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions around the world.

Latin is still used in the creation of new words in modern languages of many different families, including English, and in biological taxonomy. Latin and its daughter Romance languages are the only surviving languages of the Italic language family. Other languages of the Italic branch were attested in the inscriptions of early Italy, but were assimilated to Latin during the Roman Republic.

Because of the Roman conquest, Latin spread to many Mediterranean regions, and the dialects spoken in these areas, mixed to various degrees with the autochthonous languages, developed into the modern Romance tongues.[6] Classical Latin slowly changed with the Decline of the Roman Empire, as education and wealth became ever scarcer. The consequent Medieval Latin, influenced by various Germanic and proto-Romance languages until expurgated by Renaissance scholars, was used as the language of international communication, scholarship, and science until well into the 18th century, when it began to be supplanted by vernacular languages.

Tips for models from a photographer

I’ve been considering writing something like this for a little while. A nice concise blog post for mainly new models on what to do before your shoot. There are a few common problems or niggles we all run in to and if you do the things on this list, you should avoid most of the problems and make your photographer want to work with you again.

 

Preparation

Prep is everything for a shoot. If the photographer is putting time in to finding a location, creating multiple lighting setups, finding a MUA/hair stylist, working with them on your look, the very least you can do is be prepared.

Depending on what you’re shooting, a day before the shoot you should:

1. Wax/shave/thread/remove hair – This means anywhere that will be on display, eyebrows, top lip, armpits, legs, back, even the “lady garden” if it’s going to be on show. Don’t ever think “Oh the photographer can photoshop that out” – if I’m working on 10 or even 100 photos and they all need your stubble photoshopping out, I’m not going to be a happy bunny. BUT, if you were prepared and sorted all that out the day before the shoot, I’m going to think you’re professional and WILL work with you again.

2. Nails – get your nails done! Even if you’re just putting on fakes. They don’t have to be talons or crazy elaborate things. Just slap some paint on and make sure they’re even. No chipped nail varnish please.

3. Hair – Unless specified, make sure your hair is washed and clean, ready to be styled. No, dry shampoo is not a substitute for clean hair.

4. Don’t go out the night before – Yes you may think you’re Kate Moss, living life in the fast lane, but in reality you’re probably not and coming to a shoot stinking of booze with bags under your eyes will not get you a call back for the next shoot.

5. Skin care – we all have break outs from time to time, but don’t spend the night before squeezing your face so you show up looking like Freddie Kruger. That’s not cool. Leave it, the MUA will have ways to conceal and cover up any spots or blemishes on the day. If it really is a nightmare, contact the photographer beforehand so they can speak to the MUA and see if there is a way around it. YES, they can probably photoshop it out!

6. Fake tan – Everyone likes to look tanned, a healthy glow if you will, but orange smear marks all over your body are not cool. Get a professional spray tan a few days before so it has time to not be so Oompa Loompa orange that’ll be great! Also fake tan in between your fingers, behind your knees and on your elbows goes really dark! Avoid this!

 

On the day of the shoot

1. Be on time – Seriously, do I need to explain this? Show up where and when you’re supposed to. If there are problems, let the photographer know as soon as possible. If you can’t be bothered to get out of bed, great, I don’t care, just let the photographer know so he can get a more reliable model to take your place. Any shoots you cancel on last minute, what ever the reason, make you look unprofessional and photographers just won’t work with you again. If you respect their work, get there on time!

2. Wear loose fitting clothing – If you’re shooting anything where you’ll be displaying skin, don’t wear a bra 2 sizes too small that’s going to leave huge red marks across your body. This is more work for the photographer to remove. Also, skinny jeans, very bad idea. A long red seam running down both your legs is not a good look when shooting lingerie. Wear something loose a pair of sweat pants and a hoody top is more than enough to cover you without leaving awful marks all over your body.

3. Take a strapless bra and seamless pants – What ever you’re shooting you should always take a pair of seamless pants with you, so you can wear them under other clothing; your normal bright Bridget Jones polka dot pants will show through under studio lighting.

They’re not going to win you any sexy undies prizes, but they will make your photographer book you again!

4. Have fun – We’re very privileged to have a great fun job. Enjoy it, be professional and you’ll go far!
