As a photographer it just goes with the territory that you’ll run into difficult models, Disagreements over wardrobe, location, lighting, and poses are all part of the job, working with a Diva can require a heavy dose of patience or just a heavy hand which I found to be the case for the model I worked with this week. She did not want to cooperate at all, no location was good enough, she always wanted to go somewhere else, she refused to face the light properly, and every single time I tried to help adjust her pose she would just retreat into herself and refuse to do anything for a few minutes.  It wasn’t long until I decided enough was enough and just literally picked her up and placed her right where I wanted her to be.

After taking control of the situation the shoot went just fine.

Model shoots always seem to attract attention so I shot the bystanders as well

Thanks for visiting, I hope you had a fun look into the world of difficult models.

Happy Shooting!
