RANDOM THOUGHT: To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams. GIORGIO DE CHIRICO

WHO IS PERCEPTIVO MAGAZINE FOR? It’s for those who appreciate life.

What is the purpose of Perceptivo Magazine? Our goal is to showcase the work of talented artist, photographers, illustrators, writers, designers, and models who are up and coming. We want to be clear and specific but do not want to entrap ourselves into a formulated template and become paralyzed in a state of arrested development. It is our hope to continually evolve with the trends and set new standards and become trendsetters. Also, Perceptivo Magazine will be changing faces every season, sometimes being conservative while other times being out of the box. We will regularly be accepting submissions of artist from all around the world. So what you are viewing is a sneak preview of Perceptivo Magazine which we decided to call “The Leak Issue”. For this issue you will notice the minimal display of wording, simply because of the intent to exhibit the work of various

photographers, but fear not; in future issues of this magazine we will be featuring some exceptional writers who will be joining the team of this online publication. Perceptivo Magazine will be released three times a year, becoming a trimestrial publication, and it is our hope that this magazine will spread its wings and fly with the support of our readers. We want to get noticed and become a voice in the artistic community, so please start tweeting, facebooking and bbm’ing everyone and help us spread the word about Perceptivo Magazine. Your input and feedback is more then welcomed. Thank you for reading and viewing Perceptivo Magazine. Edgar M. Mattey Lead Editor/Lead Photographer

Modeling 101: Pt I - Not all Glitz n Glam, so know a few things. It's a dog eat dog world out there especially in a industry that has to examine your beauty and your every flaw. The life of a real model is not all glitz and glam. It's the job of a model to portray the life of glitz and glam. The average age of a model is 16 years to 28 years of age. After that it is time to retire. Most models you see in magazines are part time. Some are students while others are musicians and others are just living with mom. And the life of a successful model is one of continual stress, deadlines, worries about weight, and fear of old age.

2. Do your homework! Learn about other models and learn who photographers, designers, publications, and agency's are. Lack of knowledge is guaranteed suicide.

1. First learn about the history of modeling. Get a clear understanding why the standard in the industry is the way it is. Did you know that over 200 years ago in England designers would show royalty and nobility new clothing on skinny models simply because they wanted to show how the clothing would look on a hanger. The shape of a model would be a distraction and take concentration off the clothing.

5. Have confidence. Lack of it will mean that you do not believe in your self. If you do not believe in yourself... No one will.

3. Take a course in marketing. Learn how to market yourself. You are the product and everyone needs to know "why we should choose you".

4. Don't sell yourself short. Many models strive to get hired by GAP, Armani, Dolce & Gabana, etc. But before you do, there is the world of In order to be a successful model you must have modeling without pay. Do tear sheets with more then just great looks and the height of a publications that are known, not with some tower. I have listed some keys so you can acquire internet site that needs girls in bikini on bikes. some knowledge of the trade. Not everything Agency's will not be visiting those sites anytime you will need to know, but just a few pointers. soon.

First learn about the history of modeling.

Do your homework.

Take a course in marketing.

Don’t sell yourself short.
