MODELLING, DANCE & TALENT
Models, Dancers and Talent Portfolio fees:
As a hard working published fashion/portrait photographer for many years, see
www.eliotsiegel.com, I’ve developed a multitude of models and dancers. I once managed

shoot one exciting day during my four years living and working in Italy. Much of my fashion
work revolves around movement, so for me, working with models and dancers comes very
See my two books; ‘Fashion Photography course’
& ‘Photographing Models: 1000 Poses’,
Most Model and dance portfolios are shot in studio for the control I can keep over the
lighting and background. Studios give us what we need to concentrate and prepare
you for what comes next, paid work. I’ll help you understand what fashion clients
and photographers will expect of you. I’ll take you through many different series
of positioning and movement; from sitting and lying on the floor, to kneeling,
crouching, standing, leaning, walking, running and jumping. So much for
you to learn…and I’m happy to lead you through it.
Experienced models and dancers may want to try other locations that can be available to
us, from parks to fantastic locations for hire. See http://www.altostratus.co.uk/ for
inspirational locations that start at £150 for a 4 hour shoot.

A great add-on, a professional fashion stylist can provide the coolest contemporary
