Model Interviews from the model photography podcast.

Ep 41 – Model Bailey Devonish

Model Bailey Devonish likes experiencing what the different genres of modeling are all about, but she does confess that she is primarily a nude model. In this episode Bailey tells us about what happens when you tell your non-photographer/non-model friends that you are a nude model, why she wants to be a part of the self-realization trend, and what happens at Nude Night in Orlando. Is baring it all about more than taking off your clothes? Check out the podcast and let us know what you think.

Ep 39 – Model Pixie

We spent the first part of this show with Model Pixie labeling mythical creatures and talking Megadeth. Seriously. It all goes hand in hand with Pixie’s adventurous personality, and in this episode she tells us about some of her adventures in modeling and controversy. This episode is definitely as much fun as it is informative, so plug in and get ready for some mirth and adventure with Photographer and Model.

Kimberly Boenker is a model I’ve shot with a number of times. Better strap in for this one, and it’s NSFW. We talk about everything from shooting pinup to swords, armor, and cats. Her most controversial image and how she deals with creepy photographers. What she looks for in a photographer’s portfolio before she’ll work with him. Kimberly’s done a lot of work with new photographers and has some advice on dealing with a naked model in front of you.

Ep 25 – Model Shannon Purdy


This week we interview Model Shannon Purdy. Shannon is primarily a fine art model, who prefers to model nude. It was her unique perspective on fashion vs nude modeling. She is the wife of a photographer and has seen both sides of the model photography which gives her a perspective on what is a good model and photographer. She also talks about what it is like to shoot with your spouse. Lots of model use an alias, but Shannon doesn’t and talks about why she uses her real name.

Oh, and sorry about leaving the ceiling fan on during the recording.

Cyan Banister is both a model and the Founder of a social network for models and photographers. This episode is a discussion about her modeling and and everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-Zivity-but-were-afraid-to-ask.

Why not getting what you want from a model photoshoot as a photographer is a good thing. We talk to her about how her modeling has impacted her self image. As someone who is hooked into the high tech community in Silicon Valley, she talks about how people react to someone who is “naked on the internet”.

Then we talk about Zivity itself. Its genesis, and all the questions I had as a photographer about Zivity including why the split is the way it is. We also find out about changes to come. Ron and Cyan also talk about how Zivity can impact the amateur model and photographer world that is run on the TFP model.

All around a great and fun episode.

Model Tiffany Jackson explains how models set their rates and how she balances the creative vs the business. And how she’d love the be the first girl to die.

Do photographers normally have an idea what they want to shoot? Not in Tiffany’s experience.

Tiffany helps out new models and give some tips on this episode for those models. She also talks about how flakes make her life easier.

We talk about Las Vegas, where she’s from, and how the modeling scene works there. With some tips about traveling there and shoots.

How she dealt with controversy and how people blame the photographer first, even when it’s the model’s idea.
