Dillon Thomas's curator insight, March 21, 9:07 PM

Find a Simple Portfolio Site that allows you to showcase your work in an easy to use site that allows the end user to quickly see your work. This is often better then a website which can get complicated and you are linking to multiple sites and the point of just highlighting yourself can get lost.  Carbonmade.com is one of the new portfolio sites that keeps it simple yet is versatile giving you content control and what experience your viewer has.

Our wedding photographers represent a variety of shooting styles, photojournalist, candid photography or even surprise engagement photography we will record your most memorable day in a beautiful and special way. We also offer Corporate Executive portraits, Actor Headshot. Fine Art Pho
Dillon Thomas's insight:

FINDING THAT ONE PHOTOGRAPHER THAT BUILDS YOUR PORTFOLIO FOUNDATION  - I got lucky, I found a photographer who is not only amazing at his art but is looking to make a transition to  high end fashion shoots,  specializing in comp cards and head shots. He is extremely creative and we are working together on some creative collaborations that both of us have always wanted to do.

 

Rene is personable and easy to work with. I felt relaxed and comfortable during our shoot. I have decided to hand over creative control of our shoots to Rene, and allow him to do what he does best. He is a master at lighting techniques.  I felt confident enough in Rene Diaz to offer him the creative freedom to determine all aspects of our shoots including creative concept, location and wardrobe.

 

Check out his website and if you live in the North East, and especially the  Greater NY or PA area, I know he does amazing outdoor work.as well as wedding, portraits and corporate events. If you are an aspiring model, you definitely want to schedule a shoot with Rene Diaz of Our Dreams Photography. He is reasonably priced and is definitely worth whatever it takes to get on his calendar. 

 

As he  transitions and focuses on  fashion photography, I am excited to be part of his journey,  I am beginning to get a lot of opportunity and meeting Rene is probably one of the best things that could have happened at this point of my own journey.  Of course diversity is important in creating a portfolio but having that ONE PHOTOGRAPHER That is your Go To, that you can count on and you trust, for your main photographs is critical to creating the best portfolio and showcasing your pictures.

 

Check out his website http://www.ourdreamsphotography.com/

and check back at my Portfolio site where I will be posting my Photographs from Our Dreams.  The site will be dynamic and changing frequently so check back often. http://dillondlite.carbonmade.com/

Dillon Thomas's insight:

Sign up with Casting Networks, work closely with your agency, for example my castings to directly to my agents. It can get overwhelming the sheer number of castings so this is where having an agency is helpful, but it is imperitive that you are connected to these large casting databases so you have a presence.

SIGNING UP WITH INDUSTRY SPECIFIC MEDIA...  A MUST DO .. I RECOMMEND BACK STAGE AS ONE OF THE INDUSTRY LEADERS ...AS DEMONSTRATED BY TESTIMONIAL LINK ABOVE...

 

BACKSTAGE RECENTLY CONTACTED ME ABOUT A SCOOP I HAD POSTED ON AN AGENCY I WORK WITH.  THEY WANTED TO SOLICIT MY OPINION AND WHAT MY EXPERIENCE WAS WITH SAID AGENCY.. THE AGENCY HAD SHOWN UP ON SOME OF THIER POSTS AND WERE ADVERTISING FOR CLIENTS.  I WAS REALLY. IMPRESSED WITH BACKSTAGE ... THEY CARE WHAT IS POSTED AND IF THERE IS LEGITIMACY BEHIND THOSE WHO ADVERTISE OR POST ON SITE ...I SHARED MY EXPERIENCE WITH AGENCY AND I ALSO NOW HAVE A LOOK OUT IF THERE ARE ANY RED FLAGS THAT SHOW UP ABOUT THAT AGENCY OR OTHERS WE SPOKE OF.  

 

IT IS SO EASY TO BE THE MARK OF "AGENCY OR TALENT MANAGERS" WHO EXPLOIT THE  DREAMERS .. AND THE NAIVE .. BACKSTAGE IS ONE OF MANY WAYS TO EDUCATE YOURSELF AND PREPARE ..

 

GOOD LOOKS BACKSTAGE..   THANKS   DILLON THOMAS

MY MODEL COMP CARD WEBSITE - The first one you are going to get carried away. Enough said LOL.  I created my portfolio www.dillondlite.carbonmade.com to offer a low key website as a juxtaposition.  I will be creating a website toned down in the near future, but it was fun to build.

Righteous Talent LLC - FINDING AN AGENCY TO REPRESENT YOU

Righteous Talent LLC - FINDING AN AGENCY TO REPRESENT YOU | MALE MODELING TIPS | Scoop.it
Dillon Thomas's insight:

Many agencies offer a non exclusive arrangement, which means they will represent you but you are not precluded from working with other agency representatives.  Buyer beware, however, there are a lot of "Agencies" that take your money but don't deliver on finding you jobs.  There may be fee's to be posted on a website or photo cards, but they should be nominal and within reason.  I got lucky and found an agency that lives up to it's name. Righteous Agency operates with a high level of integrity and live up to their name. 

 

If you are in the Greater NY, NYC, NJ or PA area I recommend you check out Righteous Talent if you are seeking to work with people of integrity who will work hard to represent you and find you the best opportunities.

SIGN UP WITH INDUSTRY CASTING NETWORK "MAGAZINES". I got lucky and was offered a free year with Backstage by sharing information they requested from my scoop actually. Backstage for me, by far, is the best casting listing I have found with quality listigns and casting notices. You can direct apply to a casting request and it goes straight to the casting director.  I urge anyone trying to get opportunity to utilize Backstage.
