Model Portfolio Photo-Video Shoot
Model Portfolio Photo-Video Shoot is a great solution for those looking to build their model portfolio. These sessions not only include photography but also a fashion video up to one minute or less in length. Having a video of yourself is a great way to stand out from the rest. Let’s face it, people have a short attention span online and they must see things move as well as cool catchy images.
As a commercial photographer and videographer, I noticed that people like to see how the garments move on a body. I find including video for e-commerce to be the next level to up the sales. This isn’t anything new, there are many website including this feature already. However for model agencies and independent models, I find including this in their portfolio to be key. Plus I get to practice some new concepts to present to clients talent and creative solutions. So personally this is a win win for everyone, from the agency to the model to the client.
For this session I worked with Nicole B. King (IG @nickybeeking). She provided her own wardrobe and did her own makeup. Nicky is a great model to work with. We started collaborating on concepts since 2020 and we both landed several publications internationally for fashion and glamor.
I started the session with Nicky wearing a red wig and blue jean outfit to contrast with the pink. I also added some dramatic lighting to capitalize on it. I used my profoto lights with bare bulb and one v-flat to create the split light onto the background. I also used a red gel over the bare bulb, as you can see in the beginning of the video. For the second and last look, I used all natural light.
