I thought it would be interesting to see everyones first ever photo from a shoot. Either the photographers first properly edited photo from their first shoot, or the first photo a model received from their first shoot.

Details from the shoot are optional, depending how embarrassed you are about it!

So, here's mine, and let's see everyone elses!


 

I will fully admit that after this picture I knew I wanted to do photography properly, as I always had an interest. This is one of my best friends, Jo, who was happy to pose for a few pics in front of a black sheet on the wall. And the camera? (cringe time!) A Casio QV-R40. Two days later I went out and bought my first DSLR camera.

The photo was taken on the 22nd October 2006.

First time I pointed a camera at someone, in an arrangement, i got this: There;s actually far better ones of her from the same afternoon, but this is technically the first. Yes, it is a her. My boots, my mask, my g/fs jacket and the models clothes.

THIS was my FIRST professional shoot in the 1970's (!!!) and HEY PRESTO...it actually got published in Weekend Magazine. I nearly framed the payment cheque...laughTaken when I was in my very early 20's...kinda a long time ago...

I STILL have the same outfit...and modelled it recently!

This was my first ever shoot. 11/3/2006

16, awful makeup skills, bad skin and no idea how to pose or style myself properly. 
Still tend to look back at old pictures to see how far I've come...usually teamed with: "why did I think this (pose/expression/outfit/makeup) looked good?"

The funny thing is, is that you could compare the picture you posted against your main profile picture (since they are kinda similar setups) to clearly see how far you've come - which is  A LOT!!!

This one for a dress designer. This is the designer after the model no showed. (booked by designer) The lighting was courtesy of every light in the shop turned on, a reflector and AWB. More misses than hits on the day, but it was the start of a learning curve

First 'proper' shoot I ever did. Outfit needs fixed at the front, model too close to the background, a bit underexposed, nails should have been dealt with... these are among many thngs that I still fail to notice at the time I'm shooting, for which i should be shot.

Courtesy of an image-mill in London. I fully knew what I was getting into with regards to cost etc, I had never even considered modelling, went along with a friend and got hooked!

Some blown highlights on the skin which I smoothed too much and not enough skin tidy-up first. Most of my early editing was pretty bad, I made skin ridiculously plastic-like; I was also bad for cutting off fingertips, hands and toes. Lovely model though, shame she moved away before I grew out of that phase!

My first ever shoot with a model, this pic has been one of my most popular ever and still sits in my portfolio, back in the days when I was crazy about photoshop and less concerned about what happened in camera

This one for me. Never even considered modelling or anything like it beforehand but after this moment I was hooked!
