So what does a photographer want from a model? Good looks? Waif like body? Well not exactly. There is the factor which photographers call the X-factor, which is like defining what cool is. But for me, having had the experience to read one's astrology chart, I can spot one without having to resort to my astrological abilities. The X-factor relates to being photogenic. You need this to grap the photographer's attention.
Not many will make it as a X-factor model. This is a fact but if you still are going to try to be a photo model or event model, this is what you need to succeed.
