Without a doubt, the biggest mistake people make when trying to get commercial print work is lack of information about photos. Most people will set up a photo session and ask the photographer what kind of shots he or she thinks would be good. That is asking a lot of the photographer. People should learn everything they can about commercial print and understand the formulas and ingredients that go into putting together a strong commercial photo, and then contact a photographer. People should set up an appointment with a photographer prior to the session. The photographer should be shown samples of the types of shots desired. After both parties agree on the photos, then the commercial model can walk into a photo session knowing exactly what shots are going to done, what props are needed and have a complete understanding of the message in the photo. Agents want to see fresh and interesting photographs, photos that grab their attention, not the same generic shots that they are bombarded with 50 times a day.
