Male Models Sometimes Sneak Into Photography Locations
Sometimes male models have found themselves sneaking into a photo location to use an awesome backdrop for a photo. It is not always possible to ask for permission from property owners to be able to hold a photo shoot at a location.
Bridge Over Lake Erie
A photographer saw a swaying 6-foot wide foot bridge in a lakeside quarry yard that would be perfect for a photo shoot. The bridge connected the facility to a dock in the lake.
No foreman would ever agree to allow a photo shoot. So the photo crew waited until workers left for the day before sneaking onto a bridge to photograph this model.
The crew and model had to walk along a long dusty conveyor belt to get to the bridge. The conveyor belt loaded marble onto barges in the lake. With workers gone for the day, the crew held their shoot and captured awesome photos.
Dodging Guard Dogs
Jim, Lance and Joe had to sneak into a scrap metal junk yard for their photo shoots. During the middle of Jim's shoot, the crew heard dogs barking. The junkyard was protected by guard dogs - and they did not know it!
A photographer found a perfect location for photo shoots at the abandoned Columbus Auto Parts plant. The closed factory was littered with rusted metal, dilapidated buildings and lots of opportunities for colorful backgrounds. To gain access to the site, our male model photographer and male models had to squeeze through a padlocked gate. The photographer held shoots with four male models there, capturing incredible poses. Since the site provided privacy, male models felt comfortable posing nearly nude.
A photographer wanted to hold a photo shoot at a coin-operated laundromat. The photographer could not locate the owner to ask for permission to use it as a location. So, they simply arrived at the laundromat at 5AM and completed the shoot before any customers arrived.
The new way to become a portrait photographer is to order the Flip video camera. You use it to make quick and easy videos of students on a campus near you. Photography isn't all about stills anymore. The Entitlement Generation (those born after 1980) want to be video taped, not just photographed. They grew up with camera on their cell phones. For older people, the Polaroid One Step camera was a prized household item that was kept under lock and key by dad. Kids normally have camera on their key chains.
