Brittinay Nicolette- Miss Maryland Collegiate America. Photography for pageants

Photography for pageants is something I have been doing longer than I’d like to admit.  I was lucky enough to work with Brittinay Nicolette who was recently crowned Miss Maryland Collegiate America.  I have hired Brittinay in the past for modeling jobs but this was our first time shooting for a pageant.  Congratulations Brittinay and good luck in August at the Nationals!!

Beauty photography for models

Lighting is the most important things when it comes to beauty photography for models.  A photographer has to learn to light in such a way that does not cause unflattering shadows on the model’s face.  A beauty shot may look easy but it’s truly a situation where you can spot a novice photographer vs an experienced one.  At this shoot, I worked with an amazing hair/makeup team which helps make a great photo amazing!  Not everyone will like this crazy lighting but I love these images.

Thanks Gina Bateman, Sarah Jackson and the lovely Allyson from L&M Modeling and Talent.

Fashion photography jewelry

In the past few months I have been working on new fashion photography images for a jewelry designer’s website.   Most of her marketing has been bridal related and she wanted to take her image to a new level.  I suggested doing the model images in black and white to make her site and her images stand out.   I was thrilled with the results!  We had a great team that day of makeup/hair/stylists that created some striking images that I am very proud of.  We also did some softer model images with her jewelry and hair pieces as well as individual shots of all her earrings, bracelets and necklaces.  Fashion photography jewelry.

Event Photography

This last month has been filled with mostly event photography.  One of my regular jobs is with Rams Head Center Stage.  I was lucky enough to photograph The Fabulous Thunderbirds last night!  They were amazing to watch and of course, sounded great.  If you haven’t been to Rams Head Center Stage at MD Live Casino…check it out!

Editorial Fashion Photography

Finally the new issue of Harford County Style Magazine is on the shelves!  I shot the editorial fashion photography pages this time at a great location…Brian Bunce Barbers.  Originally I wanted to add a bit of 1940’s graphics to the images but found it was a bit too busy to the eye.  So, the actual magazine pages look a little different than this, but I loved the graphics and wanted to share those in my post.

Photography for high school seniors

It’s that time of year!!  I love doing photography for high school seniors.  I work with a great makeup artist/stylist to put together a fun shoot that will produce high quality portraits.  We do images in the studio, we also have a few cool locations right outside our studio doors as well!  Harford County is filled with great spots for senior pics.

If your teen wants a less traditional look to his/her images we offer alternative shoots that are more like fashion photography that portraits.  Pretty much anything you might want, we can do!  E-mail amy@amyjphoto.com or call for packages and/or if you have questions.

 

Event Photography Bucknell University

This past week was filled with events at Bucknell University.  Homecoming at Bucknell involved so many different activities that needed two of us to cover all the event photography.  They had BBQ’s for staff, a huge Gala, a memorial service for a beloved professor and a wonderful arts evening of various performers.  Feats Inc. built an amazing tent and covered the buildings in lights to make the gala night extra dramatic in photos.

Event photography

I recently started doing a lot of event photography of live bands.  Photography for events can be challenging since you are dealing with constantly changing lighting and usually a lot of movement.  The last two shows I was lucky enough to shoot were for Diamond Rio and The Spin Doctors.   Photography for events.  Photography of live bands.  Event photography

Photography for actors and models.

Autumn is my favorite time to do photography for modeling composite cards.  Photography for actors and models is very different than portrait work and allows for a lot of creativity.  I had a wonderful time working with model Ally from L&M modeling and talent.  About 2 years ago I shot the images for her first modeling composite card and what a difference!  Photography for actors and models.

Beauty glamour photography

I love when people want to do beauty glamour photography sessions for themselves.  They might model, they might not.  Nothing is more fun that being able to make someone feel and look glamorous.  There are no rules, we just get to have a great day of makeup/hair/ and shooting.  What a great gift for someone or yourself!  Beauty Glamour Photography.
