Model Test

Shooting is a team collaboration, even if that team consists of only a photographer and model. Models can expect to receive images for portfolio and social media use when working with me. The goal is to show off the model and the product to best effect. I find this magic happens best in a simple studio setting with few visual distractions. 

Find visuals of my own work, and the inspiration I draw from for shoots like this, on Pinterest:

Preparation before shoot:

  • nails cleaned, polished in natural tone
  • hair clean, air dried (or, if your hair is high-maintenance in order to look natural and carefree, take the necessary steps. I realize not everyone can simply wash and wear.)
  • BB cream, natural lippy
  • whitening mouthwash
  • exfoliate and moisturize arms, neck, etc.

Bring to shoot:

  • Buff-coloured heels (the idea is to have a neutral colour, not to match any particular skintone)
  • Black heels
  • Solid jeans
  • White tank
  • Black tank
  • Nude (for skin tone) strapless bra 
  • Nude (for skin tone) underwear
  • Mascara
  • BB cream for touch-ups (not looking for full coverage or matte foundation. The goal is to allow your natural skin to look dewy)
  • Natural lippy
  • Eye drops
  • Tweezers
  • Body moisturizer
  • Hairbrush
  • Hair tie & pins (preferably close to hair colour)
  • Cell phone charger
  • Water
  • Snacks
