GWC = Guy With a Camera
Models often ask me how to pick a photographer. I usually go through a long list of items to look for. Here's just ONE.
If a model is looking for a PROFESSIONAL photographer, she should go to someone who uses professional equipment! You wouldn't go to a brain surgeon who used a plastic knife!
Let me make it PERFECTLY clear... you can get absolutely lovely, artistic, and wonderful images from a camera phone... BUT... a PROFESSIONAL photographer uses professional gear for professional results.
While there ARE other brands, here is a chart of pro equipment. If you are a model wanting professional photographs DO NOT bother with a photographer who uses anything less than what is indicated on the chart.
If you are a model who just wants to hang out and play model with a guy with a camera who wants to hang out and play photographer, please disregard this chart.
