Fashion Photography gives me the opportunity to work with models, makeup/hair people and stylists. Sometimes we are shooting for a magazine and sometimes it’s for a model’s portfolio/zed card. No matter what the reason, I love being able to be creative!
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.
As a photographer for many modeling agencies, I have the challenge of coming up with new ideas and shoot locations. Recently I worked with the lovely Bailey on her modeling composite card and since she brought this adorable swim tube as a prop I thought it would be fun to take it to our local Harford County Maryland stream and have her her splashing around in a photo. After reviewing the images, I wasn’t crazy about how the water had turned out…kind of a brownish tone from the recent rain. I suddenly had an idea of removing her image from the stream and giving her a new pool to swim in! I photographed pool water separately and like magic she was splashing in pretty blue pool water vs the brownish Winter’s Run stream. So this is proof you can’t believe what you see anymore in a photograph, even in a teen modeling composite card photography shoot!
I just worked with Bailey and what a beauty! We did six looks to start her first modeling portfolio. Model portfolio photography is one of my favorite types of shoots. We spend approx. 3-4 hours shooting in the studio and outdoors to create images that are used on Zed cards, also called composite cards and websites.
New photos for L&M modeling and talent. These are for Sarah’s new composite (zed) card. Thanks Gina Bateman for makeup and hair.
