Rachael; Teen Modelling Portfolio

I am always happy to take a call from a mum or model or for that matter anyone who is wondering how to go about organising their first modelling portfolio or photo shoot. On this occasion it was Rachael's mum Wendy who had a few questions about how it works and what the cost of my various modelling portfolio packages were; studio location and availability.
That's how it usually begins, (some research on the part of a parent or model) then a phone call and a conversation; and quite often I am pleased to say a booking. We did this shoot last month, Rachael and Wendy brought plenty of outfits and shoes for us to style the shoot with; we shot 3-4 looks and headshots along the way. Kaori did a wonderful job with the hair and make-up adding to the different look and feel of the pictures we needed for a successful folio shoot.

How did we go? Well we all think it went pretty well and you can see the results below which I believe are just right and age 
appropriate for a mid teen portfolio shoot.

Rachael and Wendy seem to feel the same way as you can read in this lovely testimonial.
Thanks so very much for the photos, we think they are amazing!!!  We were waiting to see which ones you thought were the best, because we honestly didn't have a clue which ones to choose.  Way too hard.
Rachael had a wonderful time at the shoot and we just want to say a huge "thank you" to you both for the time and effort taken on the day, we could not have been happier.  It was a wonderful experience for her, one I'm sure she will never forget".

Harlette Lingerie, Luxury UK Classics Shot in Sydney

While in Sydney last year UK based luxury brand Harlette lingerie approached me about shooting three of their new ranges. We had a few discussions about what model they would like to use and then I remembered Miss Universe 2012 contestant Carly Everett, who in my opinion looks more than a little like Sydney's favourite model Jennifer Hawkins! She is now also signed with  Platform Models which I hear is the same agency 'our Jen' started her modelling career with.

We decided to shoot at the lovely white on white Elephant Studio in Rosebery. But Carly was not the only model on set! She had to work very hard to outshine two lovely poodles in several shots; not as easy as you may think with those lovely pooches working hard for the camera's attention too.. The lovely Kaori did a fabulous job with the hair and make-up as always and here are the results. I hope you enjoy the shots. And of course I am looking forward to photographing more high fashion lingerie in the future.
