A Model Photographer by zharth A Model Photographer by zharth
Or model/photographer. I hadn't intended on becoming a model. I started out wanting to be a photographer. But for some reason I still can't discern, I've never had beautiful women throwing themselves at me, willing to get undressed on camera. So I just did it myself. Ten years later, here we are. Being a self-portrait photographer has its advantages and disadvantages. You can never just shoot what you see in the viewfinder, so there's a lot of guess-and-check/trial-and-error, but on the other hand, the model and photographer are always on the same page, and you never have to deal with model release forms. It's hard being accepted as a self-portrait photographer, though. Most sites want you to be either one or the other, and not both. But as a photographer, I'm at a disadvantage because I've only really ever worked with one model, and I'd rather network with other models so I can improve my photography game, than just find other people to take my picture. But that's the price of being unconventional. Frustrating though it can sometimes be, it certainly beats being "normal" or "average".

Thanks! This is definitely one of my favorites, as it demonstrates so well the two facets of my work as a self-portrait photographer.
