I can't seem to find the list of clients, magazines. It's easy when you get to shoot good looking people. A good photographer is making an ordinary person stand out...

That's a nice sentiment and all, but "good looking" people are usually what end up in commercial / print compaigns no?

It's easy to shoot good looking people. What's so difficult about that? If a photographer has a good looking model right in front of him and it's difficult for him to take a decent picture .... I... really don't know what to say.

Remember that you also need:
-a good concept
-a good color composition
-beautiful clothes
-good MUA and Hair stylist
-a good talent direction skill's
-schedule techniques
-team orchestration skill's
and capacity to put everything working together!

but yes, if there's not good looking people it will be hard, even if you got all the other things.
