Excelling in fashion & beauty photography, as well as head shots, Rex Lott first dipped his toes into his passion at the age of 15. Clicking pictures at a young age, he knew that the camera would be an integral part of his life. And he was right – this was the passion that eventually turned into a full-time career for this excellent photographer.
Graduating from Ohio State University in 1994 with a degree in photography, he soon moved to Miami. And so started his professional career. But this was just the beginning. It was followed by two years of intense experience shooting for different agencies, boutiques, and magazines. As he learned more and more about photography, he also began discovering his own style. Finally, in 1997, he was approached with a unique proposition by two of his friends. These two were models at Click, New York, and were in need for shooting different pictures. Rex gladly obliged, and as he went in to submit a film from the photo shoot, things took a turn for the better. Frances Grill, the owner of Click, was in thoroughly impressed. He saw incredible talent in the photographs and so offered him a job instead. 10 days later, Rex was working as an assistant to the bookers and as a chaperon for the model’s apartment. Another year passed by and he was already the director of New Faces.
After 8 long years of an incredible job at Click, Lott finally decided that it was time to return to his passion. So now, while he continues to maintain a brilliant relationship with Click, he has devoted his time to working as a full time photographer instead. His talent and experience have landed him many prominent clients. Just to give you a clear idea, he has worked with Irene Marie, Karin, Michelle Pommier, Next, and Elite, among many others.
Rex’s Words of Wisdom:
The best thing I can tell an upcoming model is to always be professional and full of life! When it comes to a good shoot, it is a give and take relationship. We photographers feed off of the model’s energy – so don’t wait for us to add the spark, but create it yourself. If you’re nervous, you don’t have to be. Instead, just savor the moment and don’t be afraid to step out of your shell. To be a model is to act as you project a part of yourself to that camera. So allow yourself to become the character you’re depicting, and don’t be afraid to experiment with it – be open, be you. The photographer is your friend – the more you are willing to give, the better the final results will be!

Osiris’ Words of Wisdom:
To all you up and coming models out there, as a photographer, I can only tell you to always remember to be professional. But most importantly, just have some fun at the shoot. Modeling is very similar to acting, so once you understand the objective, you can work towards projecting it to the photographer. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little, and dare to be different whenever you can. Show off that energy of yours with pride, because the camera sees it all. So if you’re not enjoying yourself to the fullest, it’s going to show as well. Instead relax a little, take a deep breath, and do what you do best – it’s your turn to shine!
