GMM:Do models try to play you for gimmees? If so, does it work?

Tony G: Yes – if it’s a really great shoot and I enjoyed working with the model, I don’t mind giving a few extra images.

GMM: Do you find it challenging to be around such beautiful models?

Tony G: Not at all, I tend to get along with many types of people. We end up having fun and making great images.

GMM: Do you use model mayhem?

Tony G: Yes, I’ve put out casting calls in the past for calendars and promotion work.

GMM: What is your favorite social network?

Tony G: Facebook.

GMM:What do you love about Facebook and what do you hate about Facebook?

Tony G: I love instant feedback and seeing how much the models I shoot love their images. I hate the drama.

GMM: Do you think photographers get a bad rap?

Tony G: Absolutely, and in all honesty, I think models should be wary of a lot of photographers. I’ve seen it first-hand where a photographer kept ‘insisting’ on the model doing something she was absolutely uncomfortable with, ending up telling her she was difficult and hard to work with. I strive to make the models I work with as comfortable as possible.

GMM: What is the worst experience you can remember from a photoshoot?

Tony G: Worst experience would be having a place booked for 6 hours is getting it cut down to 2. Still got the images we needed, but it was definitely a stressful time.

GMM: Do you see a solid career for the bikini models?

Tony G: Yes, but maybe that’s because I don’t see much of a difference between a bikini and lingerie. Promotional work will always be needed and sex will always sell.

GMM: Is there anything you want to express now that people should know about this business?

Tony G: I don’t believe you’ll ever truly know what you’re doing but as long as you stride to learn and have fun along the way, I think you’ll be ok.
