Walk in with a smile, walk out with a job

I had a meeting today to show my book to the CEO of a major modeling agency headquartered here in L.A. and hot damn if i didn’t i book my first shoot with them on the spot! I have a solid body of work now and i found that selling your abilities in a face to face meeting with a power broker is a skill you never lose. I used to walk into the wolves to pitch and sell a concept daily when i was an AD and today i pitched and sold just like old times. A solid book and a little charm and fearless confidence still goes a long way in this town.

I’ll be doing tests for their new faces division. It looks like an interesting team I’ll be working with and I’m excited about it. I clicked real well with my contact and we seem to be on the same page creatively and that’s always a huge plus. This is a great step forward for me in advancing my photo career. Now don’t get me wrong i love shooting naked girls, but i also like to be challenged and try new things and it will be great fun to do some fitness and fashion models as well as some stuff with a much more commercial appeal.

I walked in with a smile and i walked out with a job.

  1. About to take the world of high fashion by storm! The Notorious Jenny DeMilo strikes again!

  2. What do you shoot with? The pic looks like a Canon XT/XTi. I’ve been stalking the 24-70 2.8L for like 2 years now….though I haven’t pulled the trigger because I can’t justify it…..yet.

  3. Hey thanks everyone for the well wishes. Its a small step but its an important one.

    Yes TR thats an XT. I like it because its light weight and i can hold it up for long shoots and thats a canon 55mm 1.8 lens on it. the Nifty fucking fifty! its a great piece of glass!

  4. jenny: I too shoot with an XT. I love my Nifty 50, particularly for portraits.
