What makes a fashion photographer great?

For me, I prefer photographers that have a FRESH point of view. Who likes something unexpected, different. Who can give me new ideas. I wish more photojournalists will agree to work with me as they photograph from the "gut", their instincts are lightning quick and usually spot on. They are more interested in character than beauty and that results in powerful images. I prefer to catch the model when he or she isn't "ready", with a spontaneous expression or movement/gesture. When they start "posing", unless they are VERY good models who can project a strong persona, it's going to get very tedious as I know I'd hate most of the pictures. A lot of models are vapid, and it shows, believe it or not. That's when the models will have to close their eyes/do some big actions as that is more likely to get us ONE good shot. I hate working with photographers who are too caught up with their own "style" and the shoots start to look repetitious, the same aura/light, same "mood", capturing the same expression, etc.. I have a very low threshold of tolerance for boredom!
