Alyson King 3 -Model Portfolio Photography

Model portrait in the studio with Alyson - Portfolio for creative artists

Alyson is a great model and was a pleasure to work with.

We started with some corporate portrait poses that are going to be used as samples on the corporate headshots page and then moved to other more creative looks.

Alyson asked to have body shots showing her well-sculpured muscles. I believe a model's portfolios have to show a variety of looks and pose without repetitions. The images should show the model as she/he is. It is ok to use light and shadows to show volume and forms.

These photos were done by Jose Aguiar APP M.Photog.in our studio in Wantirna South - Melbourne.

Andjela Matijas 4-Model Portfolio Photography

Model portrait in the studio with Andjela - Portfolio for creative artists

Every other year I run a few testing shot sessions with models and actors. I use sessions to try a few new looks and to refresh the sample pages on the site.

This time I had Andjela Matijas in the studio. She is a very talented young model and very comfortable in front of the camera. It was a pleasure to photograph her.

In this session, we started with some corporate portrait poses that are going to be used as samples on the corporate headshots page and then moved to other more creative looks.

Andjela asked to have some colourful portraits and I loved the idea. I had photographed other models using multiple colour gels at the same time as you can see on this link. This time I decided to prevent the colours from reaching the model's face and the use of a single colour in each portrait. I think the results are perhaps less artistic but better as photos for a model's portfolio.

Emotions Project - Jose Aguiar personal photography project

Emotions project is one of my personal projects. The objective is to portrait a variety of human emotions where the images cause emotions on who sees them.

In addition to exploring and photographing emotions, I want to bring aspects of our society into discussions. Here I am showing Bridget's joy of playing and on one of the aspects of domestic violence.

To show the joy of living and playing, Bridget got wet playing with water balloons. It was a lot of fun trying to get the balloons to "hit the target"

Bridget also contributed to emotions of shame and pain. This second image is part of a collection of domestic violence. Bridget shows signs of physical abuse that may not be seen by others. Domestic violence happens in many ways and the victims often hide from everybody but themselves.

We have here images of other emotions such as depression, age, sickness, sexual abuse and a series of expressions from the actress Meerna. 

I hope you feel something with these images, comment and share.

Thanks

Jose Aguiar

Model portfolio sample with Tori 7

Model portraits. Many looks on a single session.

Original article written when Zoom Studio was called Aguiar Photography.

Last month we had the pleasure of photographing the actress and model Tori Hume.

She is a professional Australian based actress and her most recent work includes a lead part in a Bollywood feature film.
Light and fun, this photo session was part of technical training for our assistants.

Tori is a great actress and was very comfortable modelling. We were able to photograph her using multiple light settings, backgrounds, costumes, poses and expressions. It was a pleasure working with Tori.

If you know someone that wants to have a portfolio update, contact us. We can create a very diverse and efficient set of pictures in a single studio session.

Model under colourful lights - model profile 4

Portrait photos for a model's profile and portfolio. Disco/colourful lights and high-contract portraits.

I photographed Hannah Conn, actress and model in our studio under colourful lights.

It was a great pleasure to work with Hannah. She is a model and actress and is currently studying cinema and working on public events.

Hannah helped me in filming and editing a small video that will be released in a few weeks.

This was Hannah's idea of the use of colour lights. There is nothing difficult in placing colour gels in front of the flashes. The difficult part is not to overdo it. The placement of each light is critical in creating distinctive colour areas and where multiple colours can affect the same area.

Another challenge is with skin and fabric texture that may become too strong due to the placement of lights on near 90-degree angles.

In order to give Hannah a varied portfolio, I changed the lighting and the retouching to produce multiple looks. All photos were done in our studio in Wantirna South.

Have a look at the result and leave your comments here.

These photos were done and retouched by the commercial professional photographer Jose Aguiar

Portrait of actor Laurence Corneschi 3

Portraits of actors Laurence and Josh - ActorsTalent profile photos

Headshots for models and actors are different from traditional corporate portraits. On a professional corporate portrait, we are not "selling"  the person physical characteristics but how the person looks to us. We want to show a friendly, confident, authoritative and approachable person. We want to see the image of a person we would like to meet and work with. A team player.

On portraits of actors and models, we want to sell their physical characteristics and expressions. We want to create a variety of looks and backgrounds and each one showing one or more of their physical features.

The creation of multiple looks is important to simulate more than one studio session in one. We do this by changing the lights and backgrounds. It gives the perception of a more professional experienced actor and how they perform under multiple lighting conditions and camera angles.

In these standard 1-hour studio session portraits of Josh Blake and Laurence Corneschi, you will see multiple backgrounds, looks and clothes.

I have Jose's services twice so far. The first time was to get some professional pictures taken for my career and social media. I was very impressed both with the quality of the pictures and Jose's professionalism. I booked his services again to do a few family pictures. The results was outstanding and my family loved it. Jose is very easy to work with, full of great ideas and shows real instinct in getting very creative results. Highly recommend him and I will use his services again.

We went to Zoom Studio in April this year to take a headshot for job applications. Had a great experience - Jose really took the time to understand what we needed from the photo, and spent a lot of time providing advice about how to pose and look the part of the job for which I am applying. He took a genuine interest in it and treated this as more than simply a job, providing lots of advice to help make the photo perfect. The photo looks absolutely fantastic. He provided a high resolution copy and a lower resolution one for uploading to websites etc. He also spent a lot of time touching up the photo and removing any unsightly spots. Very happy with the experience and the photo. All of this at a very reasonable price - we will certainly be back the next time we need a photo!
