Freelance photog since '09. I shoot just about anything I can. Born and reside in Philadelphia where I am working on building my clientele. Recent graduate from Morgan State University where I've shot fashion shows, photoshoots and other events. Looking to continually grow, improve and have fun. I love beauty in all forms and capturing it is one of the greatest feelings along with the memories from the journey!

The last couple years have been interesting to say the least. Women have always loved taking photos and this is further emphasized and exaggerated with social media, especially instagram, twitter, tumblr and now vine. There is an pandemic of 'at-home supermodels'. Chances are you know a few, most likely more. The scantily-clad, etc. ladies taking self-shots in bathrooms, in full-length mirrors or beds simply out of boredom or to show the moment before they go out for the night. It's almost ironic how some of these cuties with take 100s of self-shots and post them everywhere, but are frightened or uneasy when you appear DSLR in hand, wanting to shoot them.
I believe many women are afraid of not having the power of being behind the lens although you show them every image and make adjustments, that the camera will show all of their 'flaws' even when we can alter certain things post-production and just know that they are not meant to be models, who knows?
This is not all women of course, we know that one girl who harasses us the entire night to follow her around, take numerous pictures and arranges her own personal photo shoot at an event lol. 
I use social media somewhat like a screening to see who has potential, or who I could potentially get great images from. It is surprising when people look nothing like what they do on social media as well. 
What are your thoughts, experiences, ideas when it comes to 'at-home supermodels'?
