Your Portfolio is the most important asset to any model, photographer, fashion stylist, hair stylist and makeup artist. To be competitive you must update your portfolio regularly with new work taking the opportunity to learn new skills, helping to provide your future clients with the best photography possible.
Religiously I test twice a month; either working on my own projects or collaborating with other creatives on theirs. In 2012 I will be doing a great deal of Testing, if you are a model, designer, fashion stylist, makeup artist, hair stylist or retoucher please get in touch.
This week I arranged a test with Kit from Nemesis Models at the Liverpool Studio. Kit was looking for some Topshop style edgy photography for her book and we spent half a day working on several looks. The images look great and I’m looking forward to working with Kit again the near future. Nita Malata did a wonderful job with hair & makeup.
Black & White photography really gives your images the edge and a classical feel. I decided in this post to showcase some of my best B&W Photographs so I snapped these screen shots with my iPhone.
Over the past two weeks I have been busy shooting with B&W film with my OM1, and I’m waiting for the roles to come back from the lab. I’m looking forward to posting the images and will pop them up on my blog in a few days.
In the meantime if you would like to see more of my Black & White Photography please take a look at my portfolio pages.
