1170 DLs in one day!!! WooHoo...


Recommended Posts

Two months ago I promised to make it official when I crossed the “1000Dls in one day†barrier. I am now overly-thrilled to be able to present this cropped screenshot of when it happened. I even crossed the barrier with 170 DLs in surplus!! WooHooo is all I can say!

All I can say is "Wow." The other day, Laurin had me look at the very beginning of your portfolio to see how far you've come, and I was amazed. Very inspirational indeed!

 

Tell him to stop that. Please... :)

Logos,

 

can i ask how do you arrange the models? Do you contact a model agency? do you pay for the locations? (eg: casino, restaurants...)

 

iam asking this because i like to work as a stock photographer at full time....one day...i hope!!

 

 

thank you!

 

Cecilie (my girlfriend) is hired by me as a full-time assistant and takes care of all marketing including getting new models, arranging castings, advertising for locations, hiring Photoshop assistants and so. I am the official photographer of Model Booking Denmark and also provide pictures for “elite†in Copenhagen (where you will find models as Claudia Schiffer) – This helps a lot! Cecilie gets around 5-10 emails from hopeful new models every week, and from these we choose only a few for casting.

When I need models that are a little hard to get a hold on, such as older ones, I hire them from agencies. I have special arrangements with the model agencies I work with and can use the model for a low fee.

Getting good models is a piece of cake compared to getting new and good locations. I spent over £2000 back in 2007 feb. for a location scout to drive around in Denmark to find good locations. I got two locations out of this….doh. Getting good locations is SOOOOO hard and takes so much time.

 

The casino shoot was VERY expencive. We closed down the hole thing for a day... Not cheap. We also flew a model in from copenhagen and we had to pay for his girlfriend to come along before he accepted.

thank you logos for your extensive and compreensive explanation...since i saw this post i contact a model agency...and i booked a meeting with them...let´s see.

 

it´s really necessary to invest hard to take this a step forward.

thank you!

Over $300 per day in earnings? I'm dumbfounded. I whistle happy tunes and have perma-grin all day just for getting double digits in a day. A person could actually think about earning a living off stock at $300+ per day. It's nice to see success stories and have targets to shoot for.
