Fashion photography with Madeline Cowe

Madeline Cowe 4

This week we shot the winner of the Cosmopolitan Model Search, Madeline Cowe, who flew down from Townsville to shoot with us. Madeline is hoping to gain work overseas with this new portfolio so we wish her all the best of luck. She was great to shoot and we love the shots.

Dean set himself a challenge with this shoot to do the entire shoot in natural light and it worked beautifully. We started the session in our natural light room complete with romantic bed, antique chair and coloured wall backdrops. Then we progressed to our usual flash studio which we used as natural light instead with our new coloured backgrounds. We also shot outside in our garden. Our studio consists of 4 studios. Our natural light room, our flash studio, our boudoir room with our lovely chaise lounges and our tropical garden, sand pit and swimming pool. We can shoot all kinds of model folio work here without worrying about bad weather or getting sunstroke.

A word of advice about your images: 
Some modelling agencies will offer to do your model photography for you, but they will retain ownership of the images. This means that if you decide to move onto another agent, you won’t be able to take your photos. If you have your model photography done by an independent photographer you will retain the ownership of your images. If your not happy with your agent, you simply move onto another one, with your images.

Model portfolio fashion photography with Angela and Amie

 

AngAmie 001

This week we shot 2 gorgeous girls, Angela Hill & Amie B Mohammad. It was a lot of fun and we got a massive amount of shots for the day. We loved the contrast between the girls looks and it was great how well they worked together.

We had just finished a heap of new coloured backdrops which worked great. Half of this shoot was shot in natural light and the other half using flash. We added a modern twist to our pinup photography range with the army outfit for Angela and she sells it completely whilst Amie absolutely nailed the 50’s glamour look.

Model folio for 11yr old Jessica.

Model Folio for Jessica Dima 001

11yr old Jessica came to us this week for a model folio. Her parents chose us as they wanted to achieve high end model folio images of Jessica to take to the USA whilst they are there next month. They will be arranging to see a few agents while they are in the US on holidays. We wish them all the best.

We photograph a lot of first time models and especially younger models wanting to achieve a high end folio to take to potential agents. The benefit with having your images taken by an independent photographer and not a model agency is that if you choose to leave that agent you still own your images. If the agency takes your images they may retain ownership and if you leave, you will lose them.

We supply you with magazine quality high resolution digital files without logos or watermarks. You own the usage rights to your images and you can take them to any agent you wish as well as upload them onto third party hosting sites. We will also display your images on our website and Facebook page for added exposure.

If you would like details on a model folio for your son or daughter or for yourself please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by email on this link.

Fashion, glamour & boudoir mixed session for Amie

011 fashion portrait photography Amie

012 fashion portrait photography Amie

Dean and I have spent the last week watching a series of photography workshops on lighting and photography techniques by the amazing Felix Kunze and Sue Bryce. It inspired us to purchase some new props, make up some canvas backdrops & look at a new way of lighting our sessions.

We loved the new lighting techniques in the video so much that we decided to use the new technique when we photographed Amie & we love the results. It is so soft and particularly fantastic for women. No more retouching harsh lighting. We have been using natural light along with flash for a lot of our sessions, but this new lighting style involves diffusing flash lighting to emulate soft sunlight. It gives us a lot more control and consistency and gives us that soft natural light look even on the cloudiest of days or at night. Fantastic!

We have photographed Amie 4 times before this and always enjoy a session with her. We hope that you enjoy these images. I think you will be seeing this style a lot more in the future from us.

If you would like to book a portrait session with us please contact Karen on 0402 230669 to discuss your ideas or enquire on this link.
