Thanks for the comments guys - I hope it encourages those with similar rooms that were told it can only be used for headshots to give it a go. It can be done.

I use this backdrop support to save space:

(mounted is Savage super white, fashion grey, & black)

Regarding FF - yes, all were shot with my 5D Mark II
BUT
You can do it with a crop as well. My most used lens in this room was my 24-70L for the versitility... so with a crop, you can just use a 17-50 zoom and achieve the same results.

Nice setup. My area is a little bigger. What's the largest soft box you use in that area?

None of them are full on pro's yet (Alexandra Underwood, and Megan Scott are), but the rest are aspiring models - either new faces with NYC agencies or some Model Mayhem models... (getting away from Model Mayhem though as NYC agencies are starting to give me more and more work).

Great work here man, very inspiring. Could you share how you started and how you began to work with models from agencies? I'm in a dilemma where I need a decent model I can build a portfolio with but cant find any on MM (or dont know how) and I also want to start testing with agencies in NYC (but once again dont know how). Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Start shooting a few photogenic friends and just pull the best out of them. Then you will have to start with MM. Then model agenies.

NYC Agencies wont consider you if you don’t have a body of work to present to them – you have to be decent, you have to work for free, and its best if your in NYC. I live in NJ so getting models to come to me on train wasn’t easy – but the agencies sent them anyhow.

Just my boring full time sales job. Shooting stopped being fun... couldnt manage to get where I wanted to be limited to shooting one day a week on weekends only.

Spoke with a few art agencies and they liked my work, but had requirements I just couldnt manage to meet, so I gave up. Im all or nothing...

Sorry to hear that. Curious... What did the art agencies require from you?

Also, are you going to pick up another serious hobby now that you're leaving photography?

They required 7-10 full production quality published editorials, and wanted me to bring clients (magazines) with me.

Everything I did was free/trade. To arrange pro quality hair, makeup, wardrobe, location scout, etc... all via MM, lol. It was just too much for me working full time.

The only thing I ever got published was this: http://kentonmagazine.​com …n_editorials/ab​out-a-boy/ (external link)

That hardly counts as its only an online mag... plus it was easy as it was all arranged by me being it was a male model. Female shoots require a full team.

like i said, it just stopped being fun...
