In addition to providing commercial photography from our studio in Crewe, we also offer portfolio photography packages. The other week the lovely Anna came in for a portfolio session to give her model portfolio a bit of a boost. I was able to secure the talents of the amazing make-up artist Karen Hegarty who did a great job with the make-up (as well as doing Anna’s hair and a bit of styling while she was at it!).
Before the shoot Anna and I had discussed what kinds of looks she was looking for and we had shared a few inspiration images/mood boards to give us a foundation from which to work from.
We started off with some fairly natural headshots to get things moving, I’ll often start this way as it is a good way of easing into the shoot and is a chance for me to get to know the model (I really like to interact when shooting headshots) and its a good chance for them to get used to my style of direction and how I shoot.
We then moved things up a gear and set up some fashion shots, as we moved through each set-up Karen built up Anna’s make-up and hair to be more and more stylised. This is a great way to get a number of different looks in a short space of time.
We all had a great time on the shoot and produced some fantastic images, here are a few of the shots we got on the day:
