Agency Test Photography – I shoot individual models to fill essential image gaps in their portfolios either on location or in a studio. New or experienced, young or old, I specialise in diversity, disability and difference. So for me, testing can be done either on the back of a project or for a specific look, in a studio or out on location. I work quickly, especially on location in the winter months. No amount of great retouching can take either goosebumps or the look of cold off a model’s face. I’ve taught in workshops with Models of Diversity now for nearly ten years. From the shy to the over-exuberant, I know how to get the model to switch it on or turn it down. Shooting is fun even when it’s serious. Preparation, Presentation and Professionalism impart knowledge to those that want to learn and inspire those that want more.
Agency Test Photography – Ears are as important as eyes.
I listen to what’s wanted and shoot what is required and then some. If I feel there is a great opportunity for an alternative idea, then I’ll shoot that too, and you can decide which is best.
Contact sheets of all the shots taken on the shoot are emailed over the following day (or sooner if urgent) so you can see the progress of the model and make a selection. Images can be straight outputs, in a polaroid style, or retouched to an agreed level. I have been digitally retouching since 1994, these days I use Capture One and Photoshop with some additional plug-ins.
The first job is always FREE. You can decide if you like my service, level of communication and quality of images. After that, we’ll set a limit to time and images on a per-model basis. I’m more than happy to travel if costs are met and if you have a last-minute need, call me, I’m always up for a challenge!
If you have models in need of portfolio updates please contact me for my thoughts and an idea of costs.
