A few weeks back we were asked to shoot a model portfolio for Yorkshire lad Joel. He had decided to pursue an interest in modelling and wanted to test out the idea of being in front of the camera, as he usually works behind it as a talented videographer!
My (Emily) background is in portrait and model photography, so it was a great opportunity to get back to doing something that is so rooted in what got me started in photography and what made me love it so much!
We were lucky to have the wonderful team at Chique Makeover Studios allow us to use their lovely space in Wakefield for the shoot, which meant we had the perfect opportunity to shoot both indoors in the studio environment and outside in the natural light.
We decided to shoot a mixture of studio and natural lighting, and worked in a number of outfit changes, to give a good variety for Joels portfolio. The styling was kept neutral, sleek and minimalistic. We thoroughly enjoyed the shoot and wish Joel all the best in his modelling career!
