New Year Resolutions for Models:
1. Try a photo shoot idea or concept that you have never done (for example, if you’re afraid of heights, try something to overcome your fear).
2. Change your look completely (like cutting or coloring your hair).
3. Invest in a new wardrobe.
4. Work with new photographers.
5. Find a photographer who is willing to shoot you in the snow (if you can, climate permitting).
New Year Resolutions for Photographers:
1. Scout new locations for shooting.
2. Become more organized, and back up all your photos.
3. Invest in new props and wardrobe items for your models.
4. Explore new techniques (try different angles, lighting and editing).
5. Find a model who is willing to shoot in the snow (if you can, climate permitting)
Now go out and challenge yourself — the rewards will definitely pay off! Happy New Year!
