Wakefield fashion photographer: A fashion portfolio for Amy
After having attended a couple of my workshops, Paul asked if he could bring his granddaughter Amy to my studio and shoot a fashion portfolio for her as it was something she’d always wanted to try and was thinking of trying to get some work as a part time model. Of course I agreed and offered to help with lighting and setting up if he needed me. Amy arrived and was quite a confident model even though she had never done anything like this before and the idea was to shoot some ‘girl-next-door’ images and then move on to fashion. Modelling is not as easy as it appears and having the confidence to pose and, more importantly, to be able to move for the camera is a skill in itself. However, Amy gave it her best shot and we got some pleasing images and both Paul and Amy enjoyed the session. It was clear to me though, that Amy felt far more relaxed with me shooting her than with her grandad! I guess it’s hard to relax and give it your all when the photographer a relative. Amy is already looking forward to her summer break from university when she can come back for another shoot. She’s got some great starter images for her model book and here are a few I have edited up from the shoot.
