Baby, Remember My Name...

One of the reasons why I love casting polaroids is because it affords the opportunity to view models in their natural state - sans make-up, over excessive styling and in natural light. I'm often quizzed by friends, photographers and models themselves as to what sets apart a girl with true star potential from the sea of faces at castings. As cliché as it sounds, I have to say that it really is that indefinable 'it' factor based on a combination of confidence, presence, personality, an innate sense of style and of course physical beauty. When all of these elements are subtly in place (which is often rarely the case), it becomes clearly apparent during the casting process, as the model in question generally exhibits a sense of knowing and a quiet confidence that pierces through the lens of the camera. For crystal clear examples, check out my picks from the latest crop of new models to present at castings for Production at Art + Commerce.
