Fashion photography in the studio or on location

The well equipped studio space that I have available for photoshoots is complimented by a dedicated preparation room. During photo sessions in the studio I usually tether the camera to a computer so you can see what the images are like before any post-processing and retouching. I find that this can help with lighting and posing tweaks and helping to ensure you get the images that you want. I have temporarily converted Hair Salons, bars, canteens and even a station concourse into a studio space.

I am well equipped to meet the needs of location photography fashion shoots as well. I find pack lights to be preferable to speedlights due to the differences in both power and quality of the light. I can 'tether' to an iPad for you to get a clear idea of how the images are looking.

The equipment that I use is modern and distinctly out-performs the now proverbial 'standard ebay Amazon' lighting kits that seem to be popular with some people simply because of their cheap price. The equipment that I use has short flash durations to freeze movement like hair flicks and quick re-charging along with colour and exposure consistency. I also use a wide range of lighting modifiers to tune the image. Ther image is created before the camera shutter is pressed.

Model style photo session experience

These sessions are edgier and more varied than my standard 'portrait sessions'. The lighting and posing style differs from the family portrait session. You model photography session can be on location or in my studio space. If it is on location you must be prepared for the weather trying to have its say on things.

I do not do 'portfolio days' where photographers make out that they will produce a set of photographs which will result in any agency that sees them will sign you. That is misleading sales talk. Agencies, proper agencies, work in a different way to that. What I will do is provide you with images that will meet 'agency standards', images that you will be proud to show to other people.

Vintage model style photo sessions

If you are into vintage clothing and styles then the variety of colour backgrounds that I have will lend themselves to producing a set of photographs evocative of posters from the era.

Model agencies

Beware when someone promises to produce a portfolio of images that will make an agency be unable to not sign you.

Real agencies do not usually work that way. They look at you, how you move and hold yourself, your height etc and, if they like what they see, they will send you to photographers on their lists for test shoots to create a portfolio for you.

If an ‘agency’ is asking you for money up front advise them to check the change in legislation with regard to model agencies.
