Modeling Portfolio & Experiences

Thank you for viewing my work. By coming to this page it means you’re looking to hire me for a session!

Modeling Portfolio & Experiences

The Low Down!

I shoot on-location around North East PA (NEPA) locations. Other locations outside of NEPA it is $0.15/mile round trip from Hazleton, PA. We can also shoot in the Hazleton, PA studio.

I provide customized portfolio shoots and model experiences. The customized stylized shoots’ costs largely vary on your custom needs for your portfolio and modeling career goals or to the experience you’re looking to have.

 

Differences of Simplified and Stylized

Simplified: This is straight to the point, go to a usual general locations I use between Scranton, Wilkes-barre, or Hazleton for location shoots or a studio shoot having a few colored background options. This includes a broad pinterest board with a guideline to wardrobe.

Stylized: This will be completely catered to customized needs using my expertise in photography and art direction. We’d have a very detailed concept meeting and create a moodboard together. The moodboard would consist of everything from specific locations or studio backdrop colors, lighting, very specific wardrobe, facial expressions, poses, angle/composition, and makeup/hair styles. A personalized styling session either with your closet or/and shopping trip with our wardrobe stylist. And last but not least, behind the scenes photos/videos. This sounds a lot, and it is. It does cost more than the simplified shoots, and the costs can widely vary on the concepts and your customized needs. If you’d like to get an idea on the costs on this please simply contact me to arrange an in-person consultation for we can sit down and jot down what are your needs.

Editing Differences

I have two options to accommodate more affordable options for people. The BASIC is just a broader simple edit of the lighting and color. The Artist/Advanced edit is much more time consuming editing process where I make very detailed editing, such as skin retouching and very selective light/color adjustments. Both options will be social media low resolution (use for the web/monitor), no printing is allowed on images. If you need the images for a personal experience I do provide printing needs. If you need high resolution and print rights I do have that available for serious inspiring models looking to break into a serious career path, these rates are only available for Artist/Advanced Retouched edits provided to you which are $75* each photo at social media resolution, to upgrade it to a high resolution with print rights it is $200* each edit. [Watch an Artist/Advanced edit video here!]

I personally DO NOT recommend the BASIC because if you want to become a professional model you will be sending these images or the images will be seen by those whom will hire you for jobs/agency so you’d want the absolutely best edited images. But I am understanding with more people’s budgets in the area so I offer this. If you want the advanced edits I can work with you on a payment plan option if need be.

Common Questions

Q: Can you price match with other photographers?

A: No.

Q: Can I do my own hair and makeup?

A: Yes, but we highly recommend not to (with exceptions to actual professional makeup and hair stylists), because it is an entirely different skill to do makeup and hair made to look to perfection for a photoshoot for your portfolio/experience.

Q: I don’t intend to becoming a model for a career or part time job, can I still do this?

A: Yes, we entirely understand the life experience want to trying out being a model for a day and we are here to cater to that!

Q: I don’t know what to do in posing myself for the shoot!?!??

A: It is okay… calm down, breathe, drink some water. I’ve been a photographer for 6 years. The vast majority of my subjects were not professional models, heck maybe 5% were! I am very experienced working with regular people whom are not trained models. I’ve photographed over 200 people in the past 6 years. Look at my work, and ask yourself… do you trust me? If the answer is yes, then I know I can make you look the best. Now granted I am not a miracle worker where I cannot change one’s perception of themselves but I try damn hard to make you feel the best, enjoy your shooting experience and images we created together!
