On Location “Run & Gun” Test Hasselblad H4D-40 Medium Format Digital Camera

Run & Gun was my theme – Unlike many, I decided to detach this $27,000 camera kit from it’s umbilical cord and shot untethered with high speed UDMA SanDisk 16gb & 32gb Memory Cards.

At $1,000/hr for location costs, it was both Awe-Inspiring & Exhilarating at the same time! I can not say enough about the team of 11 creatives whom collaborated on this project to make it happen! Thank you all!

This video is simply a fast paced “Run & Gun” depiction of the Fashion Shoot testing the Hasselblad H4D-40 Medium Format Digital Camera. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a update to the post entitled Actor Actor Headshots & Becoming An Actor; Hope this helps!

Well after going though many shots, LA Actor Benjamin James selected this image to represent himself and as a branding portrait. As discussed, the image MUST

Must depict the actor in his or her best light * You just gotta look good, plain and simple; nothing highbrow here!
Must be Timely * Should appeal to “today’s” Agencies / Movie & TV Producers * Always be hip & in fashion * NEVER look dated!
Must not “LOOK” heavily retouched or altered * How many of you have seen “modeling photos” that look like plastic dolls?
Must have an eclectic essence or mass appeal * You don’t want to ever be pigeonholed as an actor!
Must brand YOU as to who you are or who you aspire to be * Read my Branding Article to learn more about this concept
Once again, becoming an actor is not easy but with strong collateral materials you can reach for the stars.

In an up an coming article I will be explaining what an Actor Portfolio so encompass and why you should have one when courting an acting agencies.

The Creating of an Image & Professional Branding of a Company

I’m publishing this short entry as a follow up to my previous article entitled ” Professional Branding Portraiture Photography – Ditch the 80’s Real Estate Head Shot “. Let me beginning by giving you some background: A few weeks back the studio receives contact from a brand new company which was in need of a “Look”, a “Brand”, or “Image” to allow their clients to recognize them immediately when seeing their promotional materials.

This strong association between the Company and the Brand is one of the most critical factors when starting a new venture and is so often over looked..

The Role of a Professional Modeling Portfolio Photographer

The Role of a Professional Modeling Portfolio Photographer

Recently I had the absolute pleasure to work with a great model with tons of spark and a good head on her shoulders. Above you can see a few of the snaps made during this studio session.

Modeling Portfolio Photography, like Head Shots or Comp Cards must depict the client in their most SALABLE light. The difference between the Portofolio, Head shots and Comp Cards is simply the number of photographs a model has to use to “get the job”, so to speak.

An easy way to look at this is simply —- The Head Shot is your Business Card; The Comp Card is your Invitation to get in the door; while your Portfolio is the eclectic representation of YOU as a model that will open the greatest number of doors and ultimately “seal the deal” with the agency or art director.

A professional photographer should not only focused on making stunning images but creating an inherent value to the product, service or client photographed.
