There are people that could model but they do not get the development or direction which they need.  That is to have that desired look brought out through photography.  Many new fashion photographers expect the model to know what they look like at all times.  Sometimes they expect the model to understand the photographers “artistic vision”.  Or the photographer wants them to know what they are trying to capture.  Directing the model and getting them to emote is an important thing for a photographer.  It is also one of the things that makes a fashion photographer in Miami or anywhere, easy to work with.  I see a photo shoot as an art, not just taking a picture.  I am able to create art that can tell a story as well as look beautiful in print.”
