Working Together to make Pictures that Work
- A Lifestyle Commercial Portfolio that will make you commercially marketable and increase your chances of commercial bookings
- Your pictures are the gateway between you and getting jobs and auditions.
- I know it and won't stop until I know we have created a strong portfolio that will work for you.
- We make it so amazing it'll be hard to choose your favorites with at least 1-3 winning images you love from each Look
- A comfortable, yet high energy, surprisingly fun photoshoot experience
- You walk away saying, "She made me totally feel comfortable to be myself, but I also felt like a very awesome version of myself" =)
First: What is " A Look" ?
COMMERCIAL LOOK: Focusing on the Outside, In.
"Dress for the parts that pay, not how you like to dress." xoxoxo
- Captured from "foot-to-face" (full body), your clothes tell the story.
- Full body, 3/4 length, waist up & face in a different setting per look.
- Painstaking time is taken perfect wardrobe, makeup, hair from head to toe... everything the camera can see.
- This is so that when your agent submits you to commercial clients, they will want to select you.
- Commercial wardrobe is detailed & hard work, but the effort always pays off!
Next: Choosing your Looks
- When choosing your number of looks, consider how many Commercial/Print looks (head-to-toe, thigh up, waist up, face only) you will need, whether you already have an agent or if you want to use these pictures to try for representation for commercial work.
- Typically Commercial actors need at least 2-3 Commercial looks depending on your casting demographic (age). 1 very casual, 1 dressier casual, 1 professional business look. If you look old enough to work in a medical setting, an essential 4th look in this region would be medical.
- If you are serious about submitting to Film/TV auditions, or need headshots as a Theater actor, this is a different set up, a different style of capture, and a different posing experience for you. It is a headshot only, will involve a different wardrobe approach, and is a separate look.
- So for example ... if you were to choose 4 Looks, it could be any kind of combination such as:
- 4 Commercial Looks ... or ...
- 3 Commercial Looks plus 1 Film-Tv/Theatrical Headshot Look
- 2 Commercial Looks plus 2 Film-Tv/Theatrical Headshot Looks
- and so forth
