I have a photo shoot organised for March 31st and it’s all thanks to Craigslist
I regularly go through the jobs and gigs sections of Craigslist to see if there are projects being advertised that are looking for a MUA. I apply to some. Some reply back, some don’t! Yesterday a lovely lady called Anna replied with regards to a Goth themed shoot she wants to set up on a TFCD basis and all of that sounds right up my alley :-).
Provisionally, we’re doing the shoot in the morning of the 31st with either one or two models depending on if she can find a second model.
Also, there’s a make-up competition being advertised on Craigslist with a fantasy theme. I have until the end of April to enter a look and then they decide who gets through to the next round which is a 30 person live event with models and photographers. Everyone is competing as individuals and I think as groups (you get put with certain photographers for the day to create the best images possible). Not clear if you use your own model at this point or if the models apply and are chosen as well. I guess it won’t matter until I get my submission in and find out if I make the grade, haha!
