To be perfectly honest, this is a tough one. The ‘industry’ demands a lot of you as a model and comparatively little of me as your photographer. That said, my goal where modeling portraits are concerned, is that we meet somewhere in the middle.
I want to capture the unique things that make you, you. I certainly hope we see your eyes at their brightest, your skin at its best, your hair at its softest, because that is what the industry is usually asking of you. More important is that we capture what’s honestly you, your personality, your energy, the things that might escape the lens when you are in full fashion makeup and runway-ready.
Ultimately, everything is dependent on where and how you want to use your photos, and the most important step here is our 45-minute pre-session consultation to discuss your goals and usage, as well as your clothing, preferred lighting, styling, backgrounds, anything and everything to get the most honest representation that you would like to give.
All of the aspects that I give actors for their sessions (consultation, time with my stylist, tethered real-time images on a large screen, collaboration, and Pinterest boards!) will be a part of your experience.
And don’t be shy about approaching any of our time together with questions, ranging from ‘do I need an editorial shot’ to ‘how should I pose for digitals,’ we will meet you where you are in your career and support in every way we can!
