How To Become a Fashion Designer

Thinking about career as a fashion designer? Find out how to become a fashion designer and how to get a fashion designer education in this article.

If you are thinking about going to a fashion school, then California is the place for you. There are many California fashion schools to pick from. Some may be good, some may be bad, but surely you will find the best one for you. How do you choose a California fashion school? Here are some tips and standards you can use to get you started:

1) Location – some people may not care where a fashion school is as long as it is inside California. However, you should realize that California fashion schools can often be judged through their locations. Find a California fashions school which is near fashion centers. This means you need to find a California fashion school which is located where all the action is. This will help you as a student since it will give you exposure to what’s out there in the real world.

Some students would prefer a California high school that’s located in a place which would inspire them. Some choose to attend California fashion schools which are located near the sea or close to nature. From the scenery, a student can gain inspiration enough to produce a new work of couture art.

2) Affiliated or Independent – should you go with a California fashion school which is a part of a prestigious university, or should you go to one which stands on its own? There are cases when a California fashion school within a university is better since the name on your resume will help you get great jobs easier. However, there is also something to be said for an independent school which can hold its own against the big names.

One thing you should consider is the fact that in a big school, you are mostly paying for the name of the school and not for the quality of education. You are paying additional cash to have the name of the university on your resume. This would help you get a job easier.

The fashion world, however, rarely cares for the name of a university if it does not perform well. If you have the name of a great independent school on your list, you might find it easier to get a job.

3) Cost – there is also the cost to think about. California fashion schools cost money. There is no denying that fact. The question that remains is: “how much money should it cost you?”
There are, of course, schools which offer discounted tuition for various reasons. Some are suffering declines in enrollment. Some may just be starting their operation and are trying to break into the market. In opting for these schools, you could save a lot of cash. However, you should consider that you might be sacrificing quality for cost.

You could also consider going to schools which are more prestigious. These schools may ask you to pay a lot of cash in order to study there. However, you should remember that high cost doesn’t necessarily equal high quality. You need to realize that in some schools you will not be paying form an education but you will be paying for the name.

Choosing a California fashion school might seem like a hard task. However, by considering these tips and truly knowing what you want, you can make it a very easy experience for you.

Extremely Sensual Female Photography

Female photography can be viewed as glamour photography that generally covers the areas such as art photography, artistic nude, photography, fine art photography, and extremely sensual female photography. One of the specific areas of female photography is female breast photography.

Female body in photography has been expressed in many forms including sensual and glamour form, and with the use of special lighting techniques. Female body photography is essentially female form photography that is different from female glamour photography. Glamour photography focuses on the sexual aspect of female photography, whereas photography the female body form focuses mostly on sensual female photography, life photography female figure AKA female figure photography.

Displays Of Affection In Public and The Law

What about laws of indecent exposure? Have they affected anyone or is it all hype?

If you think that public displays of affection are a wonderful thing when you are in love, ensure you don't overdo when displaying your affection in public. Read this story and make sure this doesn't happen to you if you love displaying your affection in public.

Dubai is becoming a modern vacation resort for vacationers desiring to get away in the warm climate and the palm trees in the surroundings of warm water. But recently a British woman named Michelle Palmer, a publishing company employee, age thirty, who lives and works in Dubai was arrested on July fifth while she was humping on a public beach.

According to the local police reports, Michelle Palmer and her lover, who at this time is merely known to the media as Vince a vacationer from England as well, were caught once, given a warning and then caught again. Public displays of affection are strictly illegal in Dubai. Moreover, having sex in public is punishable up to six years which Michelle Palmer is now facing because local authorities are trying to convey a message to the westerners vacation travelers invading their town.

There have been hearsays that the pair got married because their recent sex related actions leading to the arrest are warning a more painful sentence. It better not to believe in such strict legal philosophies, but if there's one thing to learn growing up on the border of Mexico it's that you don't go to a foreign country, blatantly break their laws and then cry out about it to your government when you get thrown in a scary jail.

Would a Model Date a Photographer?

Would a model date one of her photographers? Was a thread I found on one of the modeling networks. Interestingly enough, some models have admitted dating a photographer. Some models even admitted marrying a photographer. I know some models who have married photographers, so I guess the answer to the question whether a model would date a photographer could be positive.

On the other hand, some models and photographers in the modeling forum said that for a model to date a photographer, the model has to be very self-confident. It takes a lot of courage, according to them to take a man who is always surrounded by other beautiful models due to his line of work. I have known some photographers whose girlfriends broke up with them because they were always jealous of the beautiful models that the photographer was working with. By the same token, I have also known some married couples whereas the husband was a fashion and beauty photographer, and the wife was not a model. But they got along just fine. So, I guess, it depends on the people. As long as there is no jealousy and insecurity it can work just fine.

While is it easy for a model and a photographer to get acquainted through a social networking site, or a modeling networking site, those modeling sites are not dating sites. If you want to know where to find a model to date, a model who is single and looking, read Dating Models

What Does Gas Shortage Means For Aspiring Models?

Is there really gas shortage or is it just a set up to keep gas prices going through the roof? People all over the country complain about gas stations being closed due to lack of fuel. The areas affected the most are Atlanta, GA and Texas. Who would have thought that Texas would be affected by gas deficiency?

One model complained on a modeling forum that she had to stand in line for a half hour to fill up her gas tank. Another model in Texas said she had to wait at a gas station for four hours and when she finally got to the gas pump, all gas was out.

With the increasing prices of gas and it’s deficit the outlook for aspiring models who used to be able to travel for unpaid modeling assignments AKA TFP/TFCD (which stands for time for print, or time for CD with images) is less than optimistic. When an aspiring model, who is usually a student, begins her modeling career, she is often required to build a portfolio which she can present to potential commercial clients. TFCD is an excellent and known way to obtain portfolio pictures without paying highly priced photographers for professional portfolio-quality photographs. But paying an arm and a leg for gas to get to the photo studio almost doesn’t justify it.

That’s only a part of the problem. The current situation in the financial markets has affected the ability of the banks to lend money. What will happen to our student loans no one knows at this point. After rejection of the rescue bail out Government proposal by the lawmakers, there is a chance that aspiring models will have to shift their efforts from full-time schooling into the higher-paying adult industry.

Model Elaine's Florida Trip April 2008

If you have been checking my blog regularly, you probably noticed that I have not updated it in a while. In, I think I have not posted anything since March. The reasons are multiple.

In April 2008 I went on a two-week trip to St. Pete, Fl. I stayed with a talented photographer and an amazing friend Nic (Michael Nicoletti). This was my second trip to Florida since last year and I got an opportunity to see the other coast of the peninsula. It was a great trip and we (I and Nic) got some fantastic pictures featuring me and the beautiful scenery.

By the way, if you are model who is travelling to Florida, you should definitely shoot with Nic. He is an easy-going guy and a friend. And if you are looking for references, I will gladly provide them.

And here are some photos that I and Nic created during my trip. We shot mostly at the sunset when the colors are the most amazing and vivid, and the ocean ripple came out amazingly well in the rays of the descending sun. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Fortunately for me, my MetroPCS cell phone service was working in FL without roaming and I was able to enjoy unlimited text messaging privileges and phone calls which made it a lot more fun.

Another creative outlet that I picked up while in FL was photography. I have always been fascinated by photography and on this recent trip I was able to actually pick up the camera and take some test shoots. Now I am looking forward to learning more about photography and photo journalism.

About Model Open Calls

Open Calls entail modeling scouts meeting with aspiring models interested in a professional agency representation. Agency cannot guarantee that you will be offered a contract if you go to an Open Call. However, if you make an effort to attend an open call, you will have an opportunity to present yourself to a professional in the modeling industry. When a modeling scout meets you, they will make an assessment whether you have the right look for the type of clientele that the agency works with. If the agency is interested in offering you a contract, you will be contacted by a modeling agency representative at a later time. A modeling agency will usually get back with only those candidates whom they are interested in pursuing.

Remember, that a modeling agency does not usually encourage you to travel outside your area, as they have scouts who travel all over the country to conduct open calls. Modeling agencies hold events all over the country and you just need to keep your eyes open for future open calls coming to your area. As an alternative to attending an open call, you can submit photos of yourself online or via snail mail that will be viewed by modeling scouts.

If you have a portfolio, feel free to bring them to an Open Call you are attending, but this is usually not required. Pictures should give a good idea of what you really look like. Several types of images are a good way to show you from different perspectives. The types of images that you may want to submit include a face close-up with little to no makeup; a profile shot; a three-quarter shot; and a full-length photo of yourself in form-fitting clothing.

When you go to an open call, go easy on the makeup, as the modeling agency scouts want to see the “real” you.

Nude Modeling

As some of you may or many not know, I do quite a bit of Artistic Nude and Fine Art Nude Modeling. I have worked with fine artists and photographers on images for inclusion in fine art photography coffee table books and for sale through fine art galleries.

As I have mentioned in one of my previous posts, nude modeling and nude photography can generally be divided into the following areas: Artistic Nude, Fine Art Nude, and Glamour Nude. The purpose of the aforementioned types of photography is creation of art, or artistic images.

Adult Content photography is an extreme case of glamour nude, whereas sexual acts are either performed by one or more models in still images or video, or the content is intended for the sole purpose of sexual arousal of the viewer.

As Justice Potter Stewart tried to identify "hard-core" pornography back in 1964, by saying, "I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced . . . but I know it when I see it . . . "[1]
Up until the present, the Supreme Court has been struggling to identify what speech is "obscene". More information can be found on but without getting to technical, here is what I call “artistic” photography.

Whether nude or non-nude, artistic nude or even implied nude generally is a celebration of a human form and an expressions of a human body in lighting and shadows. Lighting techniques are best tested in the case of nude modeling. Generally, the difference between artistic nude modeling and glamour nude modeling is in the purpose of the images. If the images are intended solely for the purpose of arousal of the viewer, they are considered glamour. If the intended use of the images is art, artistic presentation of the form, and or lighting techniques and the art of lighting, the images are considered artistic. Although not clearly defined, the difference between artistic and fine art nude if the lighting. What is the purpose of the image? If it is to show lighting art, I consider it to be fine art nude, rather then artistic. If the image conveys the mood, rather then focuses of particular lighting techniques, it is rather artistic, then fine art nude.

Although all of the following categories are considered nude modeling, there are several degrees of nude: Implied, Sheer or covered, Topless back or profile view, Bottomless back or profile view, Full back or profile view, Topless front view, Bottomless front view, Full front view.
