The Portfolio Building & Shooting Experience

I have gotten many requests over the last year to offer something not only to photographers outside my area, but those IN the Sacramento Area as well. I have come up with a new program that will help give you an experience that will in turn build your business.

 I know how hard it can be when you are somewhere in the first stages of your business and you need to build up your portfolio. It can be hard to find seniors, or any subject that fits the “brand and style” that you’d like your clients to have. When you show images that represent your brand, you are showing future clients how they should dress and how they will look. If you want clients that dress cute, get their makeup and hair professionally done, you need to show that in your portfolio so you can attract those same clients who want those same things. This is called building your brand, and it is very important to start early on.

This is where I come in. I will provide the subjects (whether it be seniors, an engaged couple, a family, etc) and the setup. Everything will be ready and waiting for you to be there.

What is the Portfolio Building & Shooting Experience?

You will have the opportunity to shoot the subjects by yourself to get as many pictures as you’d like. This includes any outfit changes and different looks so you can have a complete set. (Usually applies to seniors).
You can request to have me shoot so you can watch how I interact and work with the subject. This is all about YOU and your business and I am not there to build my portfolio, but help you with yours.
I also will show you different lighting scenarios and how you can see the light to best flatter your clients skin.
If you need help with manual settings or using your camera.
Moving and posing subjects so you can have a variety of shots to offer clients and to help the subject feel natural.
Everything I do at a session, I will go over and show you.



What do you walk away with?

The confidence to do future shoots like this again for your clients.
A beautiful portfolio showing your skills as a photographer.
The knowledge  of conducting a session and using your camera to its potential.
Learning correct exposure and working with natural light (including reflectors and sunflare).
