I had an awesome TFP photo shoot with a young starting out male model about three weeks ago or so... his name is Will Campbell.
He is such a great talent, easy to work with, very expressive, he follows the posing directions very well, and he has also contributed his own interesting ideas to the shoot...
Actually we had been planning a portfolio photo shoot for a very long time and finally were able to align our schedules... We both wanted to do a "fashion flair" photo session, but we couldn't find a good wardrobe stylist to work with and so we did not have any "cool" vintage or designer clothes to use at this time...
We didn't have a professional hair stylist either, so with some invaluable help from Mary Hogan, who was also assisting me during this photo session, we decided to improvise with what we had and created a very simple "outdoorsy" look right there on the location and I shot a couple of "fashion" images for our portfolios:
Also Will needed a couple of new headshots for his portfolio:
I also created a couple of B&W portraits, a "character" one:
and a somewhat "experimental" portrait:
Most of the images here from the shoot are edited in the 8x10 format for the portfolio books.
And I would like to mention that one of the most important things for me is to make sure my models/subjects are relaxed, comfortable, and are having a good time/experience during my photo sessions:
Well, we all had a great time during that photo shoot and I hope to work with Will and Mary again very soon... :)
If you are an aspiring model, or an actor/actress/real estate agent/business owner who needs a new headshot, or a hair stylist/makeup artist/wardrobe stylist who would like to add some new great images to your own portfolio, and if you are reading this, then perhaps you may want to join me for on one of my future TFP photo sessions (while I am building my portfolio)... Please drop me a note on my Contact page or leave me a voice mail and we could plan something together shortly!... :)
