Makeup artist

2014-01-31-MUA_902-web copy

Working with makeup artists is great, they bring so much to a shoot and make a huge difference in creating great images.

Makeup artists are that gem behind the scenes who contribute so much. At a recent shoot, it was a great surprise when after the makeup artist finished her work, she did her own makeup, changed outfits and unexpectedly walked onto the set. For her it was a chance to get on the other side of the camera for a change. Spontaneity is always fun

why models need professional photographers

2011-06-Bruna__0081-web

Models need to invest in working with professional photographers to build a quality modelling portfolio. The modelling portfolio is the gateway to agencies and potential clients. However, the taking of the photo is only first half of the battle, the real magic occurs in the post processing. In the post production we smooth out the skin and add punch to the image. Images in a modelling portfolio have to have impact.

Creating quality images is an elaborate process beginning with professional hair and makeup, time in the studio or on location, and retouching in post production. In these examples we show base unedited photo followed by the retouched image.
