Ohhhhh I wish I saw this thread earlier. Softgrey I really dig the "afraid to fly" image...I always wondered who styled that. Xone thats awsome too! I hope I'm not stepping on toes, or being a party crasher here posting images...I'd rather do a scan but I don't have a scanner either, so i'm just gonna post some random stuff i have on the computer. It's raw unfortunately, i wish i had the photoshopped version. Ohh and if you go to www.stylusmodels.com
I styled the "coming soon" page, it was from the same shoot.

Now jumping onto the boat about pay, I get paid the same amount to style a testing for a model here in Toronto, as I do doing an editorial. Softgrey hit a really great point about tears. They know you're getting one, and they take advantage of that. But those tears are priceless. Plus alot of editorials for some magazines are submissions, and not commissioned to be done. It really is something we do to get our kicks, and some street cred. Softgrey, Nueva, and Zone are you guys still doing alot of Creatives(is that what you call them down there)?? The real money for stylists is totally in campaigns, commercial work, and wardrobe consulting. Softgrey and I don't have scanners...that's probably because we've been doing too many editorials and can't afford them.

For another example of photographers not making tonnes on editorial, consider a photographer named Gabor Jurina, who's canadian, he books alot of editorials, and has shot Stam and Warsame...yet until recently he shot for Stitches (I'm not sure if stitches is a canadian thing or not,but it's like hyper low end crap).

Stylists and Makeup artists may seem like subordinate beings, lady grey, but we've got a fine tuned understanding of the industry, and we're very closely knit with the gossip and going rates. I can back Softgrey through personal experience on the going rates...even fashion school kids can back us up now that I think about it.

Beezeejus, I'd love to watch the sunset and clip clothes back on a warm beach right now! hmm I'm kinda feeling out the international scene right now, sofgrey. Before I joined an artist agency, I found it really easy to get myself work just through my contacts, but makeup artists who haven't had an agency have had a harder time. Just wondering if it's the same in the big apple.

I figured it from reading the rest of the posts....

Very attention grabbing... especially the wings.... the styling is dark but elevated by the wings into something celestial... Could we see some more please?

Ok, this is a select from a contact sheet I found on my computer, it was shot in the summer by paul pacey(sorry there's a big red dot and a number at the bottom right corner, but i didn't wanna photoshop it out)...oh I'm on the paul pacey website too www.paulpacey.com! I'm the first picture after you click enter.

A little thing after a paid test that me and the the photographer decided to do. We were being random, and did a pirate thing.
