Denis, In the Studio, Men's Fashion Modelling Portfolio.

Wow! What can I say. Denis and I spoke a few times on the phone, exchanged a few emails but no pictures attached. That is not so unusual. Sometimes friends or colleagues ask me why I don't need to see pictures before I photograph them. I tell them what I believe to be true; "if they feel they have something special and want to model, I will give them the best pictures possible to kick start their career". And these days, with Instagram, Blogging,  the whole Social Media thing and online booking platforms, the whole idea of who and what makes a model has really been turned upside down; it can be as much up to you as anything else these days. That said, the first thing I said to Denis after saying hello when he arrived at the studio was "you are model material".  Denis had opted for the 'Look Out World - Here I Come' portfolio package and we had a great time working our way through his 5 looks. Here they are including his Bonus 'Agency Digtals' we shoot pretty much just after you walk in the door.

At the end of the photoshoot, and having seen shots on the computer as we went; Denis gave me one of the kindest compliments I have ever received as a photographer, that he "liked to spend money well and that this experience had been money well spent." I am totally looking forward to watching his career go far. Thanks Denis for making me and our H&MU artist Emily Rose part of your journey.
