MET Fashion Photo Show Presents "Simone Buckley"

Good afternoon everyone and welcome back to another edition of the MET Fashion Photo Show. The last few months have been crazy to say the very least. However, I am happy to report that the MET Fashion Photo Show will be teaming up with the newly created MET Photography Model Club and the MET Photography Model Club fan page on Facebook.

The MET Photography Model Club is a club open to people who like taking pictures. If you are an actor or actress, this club will also benefit you because you will now have the opportunity to take photos for your portfolio. If you own your own business, or you are constantly promoting new things and require, or would like a new look, then the Model Club is also for you. For more information about the MET Photography Model Club, please visit my website at, scroll across to the heading entitled "Model Club".
The MET Photography Model Club fan page provides you the viewer with an opportunity to participate in contests, view model photos and interact with members of the club through "likes" and "comments" via Facebook. For more information about the MET Photography Model Club fan page, log onto your Facebook profile and search for the page.

Today I am proud to introduce you to the winner of the MET Photography Model Club's first "Likes" contest, Simone Buckley. Participants in the contest were model club members who were required to submit five photographs that I personally took of them that they liked the most. Viewers to the MET Photography Model Club fan page had the opportunity to vote for the pictures that they liked the most. The club member receiving the most votes was declared the winner. Simone won a free, two hour portfolio photo shoot with the opportunity to select up to ten photos of her choice for prints from the photo shoot for her personal portfolio. She will also receive the disc with the original images, and a file with the reduced images that she can share on Facebook, Twitter and other social media and email.

Well, without further delay, let me introduce you to Simone Buckley, winner of the MET Photography Model Club's first "Likes" contest.
