  1. I’m cheap too… but unfortunately you get what you pay for. You are not just paying for the camera when you hire a professional. You are paying for experience and workmanship. Good and cheap are rarely happily married in digital camera land. Certainly you kind find a good camera on a reasonable budget, but for $ 150USD you are going to end up with a low to middle end digital p&s which would not be adequate for fashion modeling. A used SLR film camera might be available in that price range, but processing and printing will offset your savings.

  2. Photographers are expensive for a reason – because they know what they are doing, and you do not. I guarantee, there aren’t very many agencies that will give you the time of day if you think you can simply bypass the system by taking your own pictures. You get what you pay for.

    Here’s a camera within your range:

    Somehow, I doubt you’ll make it big as a fashion model taking your own pictures with that, when the industry standard is a $ 40,000 hassleblad medium format camera. Fortunately for most people, you don’t have to pay $ 40,000 to be photographed by such a camera. And fashion modeling eats through girls like there was a pancake sale at IHOP. So if you are serious, I suggest you get with it.

  3. Well, you’ll find a cheap camera, but not a good one. For that amount of money, the only kind of digital camera you’ll be able to get is a simple point and shoot camera. That’s fine for taking snapshots, but you won’t have any manual focus or exposure control. You won’t be able to change the aperture and shutter speed, and so there are a lot of photographic techniques that you won’t be able to use.

    Digital P&S cameras are fine for snapshots. And I have seen some nice pictures taken with P&S cameras. But for real photography, you will eventually want to get a camera with full manual controls…either a digital SLR or a manual 35mm film camera (a rangefinder or SLR).

    And like Raquel and Seediph said, photographers are expensive for a reason. They bring all their skills, experience, and talent with them. If you think you’re going to get the same results by just taking snapshots yourself with a cheap little point and shoot digital camera, then you are seriously mistaken.

  4. You are only kidding yourself if you believe you could do your own good photoshoot with your own little camera, especially if you have no photographic skills to begin with.
    As someone else said, you get what you pay for, and glamour photographers have the right equipment, years or even decades of experience doing glamour shoots. Even if you buy a pro camera it still wouldn’t make a difference if you don’t have the skills and experience.

    Sorry to disappoint. Models shoots are not as simple as buying yourself a cheap P&S and taking self-portraits.

  5. I have a toothache. Where can I buy some good, cheap dentist tools and fix it myself?

    Makes as much sense as your question.

    All the other answers are correct. Sorry,… but talent, skill, and knowledge do still count for something in this world. If you are serious about fashion modeling, then stop play acting and get with the program and get your photos done right. If you can’t afford it, then you are not ready to try to enter that world.


  6. You might try joining a site like One Model Place, Model Brigade, or Model Mayhem. Some photographers will trade you pictures, for your modeling time.
