Promotional Images for Performing Arts
This past weekend I worked with musician Regi Myrix , to create promotional images for his music career. I always suggest to my clients my model portfolio packages, ,which consist of head shots, 3/4 length, and full body shots . These packages are for individuals only and work well for obviously model portfolio, lifestyle images, or even dating profiles . If you need group portraits contact me for a customized quote.
For styling I always suggest to clients to bring a variety of clothing from their closet and help select which outfits I feel would work best. If you desire more than what your closet provides, I can arrange for a personal stylist or perhaps borrow clothing from a designer to use for your session. Majority of the time the client brings their own clothing, but again anything else can be arranged .
Regi brought some suits and dress shirts and I just adored the idea of him wearing all black and then an all white suit for the second look. For the lighting I decided to create a presence of a stage and spot light.
When working with my subjects, I prefer if they move around and to have fun on the set. I find it helps get the blood flowing and any nervous energy they may have at first to dissipate.
Regi was a gem to work with. He was very animated and comfortable being in front of the camera – he is after all a performer; how could I possibly expect any less.
