Lady GaGa, Annie Leibovitz & The Vogue

”What do I need in my portfolio?” says model!

Whilst strolling through the net! I saw some videos from the ford models showing their portfolio! It is a great look for those not knowing what to add to their collection or models who want to start modeling.

Examples of good model’s portfolio for agency models:

1. Beauty shot.
2. Natural light shots.
3. Fashion shots in front of seamless paper.
4. Swimsuit shot.
5. Tear sheets.
6. Very light makeup shot or no makeup shot if the model can pull it off.
7. Editorial shots.
8. lingerie shots (nothing slutty).

Above The Peak and Lamie Alexis

It was sunny, windy and warm at the same time. As crazy as it seems the wind was annoying, blowing the matte black balloons every where But in the end the wind calmed down letting us take some amazing photos.

Lamie Alexis is a new but great model posing like shes has been in the industry for over 5 years, we had fun shooting and many laughs, you will definantly see us working more often.

Azza + Above The Peak – The English boxer and Olympic gold medalist

It was the 11th of April, at park royal.. I was assisting my good friend Azza, who was shooting James Degale,  an English boxer and Olympic gold medalist. It was a quick shoot with amazing results in the big gym.

When it comes to portraits, fashion or beauty, Azza knows exactly what he is doing… the front cover shows this.

Inspiration #6 – Rankin

”…Rankin, who is this guy you call ‘Rankin”. I said to my friend ‘Tracer’.  Not knowing who this guy was, I typed his name on google and found his website. Only three words can describe Rankin’s work; Amazing, Crazy and erm yeah.. Amazing.

Rankin has worked with Kate Moss, The Queen, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan, Gordan Brown, Jay-z, Lily Allen and loads more. His portfolio is very big and explosive, every picture gives you a ‘BANG..WOW’ effect.

Recently watching his videos on youtube, Rankin has inspired me to work harder than I actually do. He has shown me that… There is no rest for the best.
