I've agreed to do some reciprocal/time for print work with an aspiring model and she's asked about getting in an MUA. I'm happy to do it but I've not brought in an MUA before so I don't really know what I'm looking for and I don't know anyone suitable locally. I'm going to put the word out among my contacts and trawl some online resources but to a great extent I'll be dealing with an unknown quantity whoever I bring in.
I'm fine with aspiring MUA's as it's time for print and we're willing to look at less experienced people even if they're not as efficient and I will of course want to see some examples of their work up front. I'd like guidance on:-
- Where I might find MUA's (is ModelMayhem any good for example?)
- Good questions to ask a potential MUA
- Preparations I should to make for them at the shoot
I'm based near East London, UK so if any of you know of local/British resources that would be great too. Thanks in advance!
