(20:11) “I’m the kind of model who takes her clothes off a lot.” Which leads to a lot of discussion of genre, including her definition of fetish, erotica, glamour. Roxy has a background in acting and her discussion about how modeling uses it. Her method of preparation is unique and simple.
We also discuss some of her controversy and how to deal with it. The dark side of being a nude model, which hasn’t been that big a deal for her.
Roxy had a long time muse relationship with photographer Kerry Beyer and we talk about that relationship.
Scarlett St Vitus was one of my muses and start off talking about what it means to be a muse. She’s a goth model and we talk about what that means. She talks about how modeling expresses her creativity.
She considers her self very shy and awkward and therefore has to overcome her fears. Her feelings are very common for models and it is good to understand that. Shawna also gives some good advice for models as well.
Pre-shoot meetings, good, bad or inconvenient.
Print book for models. Really those exist?
Photographers with ideas? You know who you are. Lots of great insight into what models think when they receive shoot requests.
This is episode 4 of the shooting beauty model photography podcast. The one where Shawna and Ron interview Model Sallie Lou.
Sallie Lou belays the idea that model’s aren’t smart. Matter of fact she’s so intense we had trouble keeping up. We talk about modeling as a creative outlet for someone who helps train doctors. And please don’t make her bring out the autopsy stories.
We also talk about working with photographers, shoots that go well and ones that don’t. What she looks for in a photographer’s portfolio. What boobs and butts mean to her in your portfolio.
If you would like the opportunity to shoot with Sallie Lou, she will be modeling at the next two workshops from Houston Skyline Studio. She’s the model for the July workshop on Basic Lighting, and she is one of two 5 foot 10 models for the Glamour Workshop in August. The theme of the August workshop is “Two Girls At The Same Time” and Ron will be teaching how to make images of two models together.
The one where Ron and Shawna interview Model Tierra. Tierra talks about being wrapped in a python, having a tarantula on her face, working with other models, what makes a good photographer, what it is like to have a model boyfriend and more.
This episode is something of a practice run, hence the negative two episode number. The interview was actually recorded in 2008 on video. At the time I knew I wanted to do a podcast, but not exactly the tone, theme, or focus. There is a lot of good information and interesting stories in this discussion with Valerie Whitaker, so I wanted to share it with you.
Another reasons this is a practice podcast is the audio quality. It was recorded on video with only Valerie miced with a lapel mic. Going forward quality will increase, I promise.
You can find images and video of Valerie on the Glamour Apprentice.com blog. The intro music was provided by podsafe music network. The song is called Point Break, by 42 shades of gray, which I thought sounded like a great band for a photography podcast. Especially one where I interview a fine art model that I shot a lot in black and white.
You can see more of Valerie here on the blog, or at her OMP profile.
