This is beautiful Eleya Maureen who modeled for one of the workshops at Precision Camera University. This is an annual event where photographers from all different levels get together and learn from one another AND from experts from around the country. It was amazing!
One of the really nice things about the week-end is that we meet professionals (hair, makeup artists, models and other photogs) in a non-stressful atmosphere. In fact, people get to know one another and music gets going, beer and wine start to flow and things get wonderfully rowdy. Our models work hard. They stand in heels and pose for 15 photographers or more as we go from location to location. I met several young, beautiful and multi-talented models and I'll highlight a few of them in my blog over the next few weeks.They're definitely appreciated! Eleya Maureen deserves a big round of applause and some SUPER NICE COMMENTS BELOW!
Eleya Maureen is such an incredible young woman, I thought I had better tell you about her! She has been a model for the past 10 years and been to 100's of photography workshops all over the world. We were so lucky to have her for PCU2016!
About a year ago, she decided to give a try at being behind the camera! She's comfortable in front of and behind the camera! What you might not realize is that while the photography mentors guide the workshop attendees, the models are often on the sidelines waiting. This smart girl took the opportunity to LEARN!
Three years ago she and her partner Greg Griffin launched Models and Cameras. They gather models, come up with awesome locations, find hair and makeup teams and even stylists to help with wardrobe. Doesn't that sound INCREDIBLE? Some of these even end up being 1:1 which is something photographers LOVE. Thank goodness for MeetUp- look for them here in TX and here in Colorado.
Please leave some sweet words of encouragement for Eleya Maureen.
