As I wrote in another post, I recently took a trip out to Vegas for a very large video conference called NAB. Another thing I arranged for while I was there was to shoot with at least one model (tried for two but didn't work out) while I was there.
I posted a casting call for models for the dates I would be in Vegas a couple months back on a site I've used in the past called ModelMayhem. Its a great place to find models, make-up artists and other professionals in this space to help each other build up each others' portfolio. The model I chose was Meli. She's done quite a bit of modeling and has started to rely on this as her primary source of income. As it turns out, she was also modeling in the Canon booth for NAB. Who knew!?
I also arranged for a co-worker to help me out with the shoot as he was interested in the shoot and I was interested in showing him how I work and getting a little help in the meantime. Meli arrived with her husband and a bunch of potential costume changes. We're ready to go! We started off simple doing beauty shots and moved into some other concepts. Ultimately I'm trying to communicate emotion and tell some stories in the images. I've included several of my favorites. More can be found on the gallery.
