Cleveland Ohio Model Portfolio

by pazza

A few days back I shot a model portfolio for Matt, he is starting to get serious about his modeling career and wanted to present a book to Cleveland Model Agencies. These are the photos that will be used in his portfolio and comp card.

It is a completely different game when you are photographing a male model. You are using different lighting set-ups, concentrating on masculine posing techniques. I believe there is no way to photograph a male sensually, rather you have to do it through his character, his core essence.

Matt’s portfolio was shot in one day and we covered six looks. The way I shoot a model’s portfolio is I work around the themes model agencies request, I then construct specific scenarios for us to work on. After I developed the scenarios, Matt and I met up to discuss them, outlined the emotional idea and identified the props we will need to pull these looks off. It is a challenging task to showcase a different angle of a model in each scenario, I pulled it off by mixing distinct moods, lighting techniques and angles. I’m very excited for Matt, he is well on his way to establishing himself in the industry.
