Melissa – Model Portfolio

This is Melissa who came to us a few weeks back to have a starter model portfolio photo shoot.

Melissa had her hair styled prior to arrival and came very well prepared in terms of outfits, which we initially went through to get ideas for styling, colours to be enhanced by make-up etc.

Then following professional make-up application by our in-house make-up artist Catherine, Melissa was ready for her photo shoot in our adjoining studio.

This was our popular model portfolio starter photo shoot, but very impressively Melissa very soon found her modelling form and clearly loved being in front of the lens and needed very little by way of posing help 🙂

Melissa has since signed up with Alison Campbell Model Agency and we wish her every success in her modelling career.

I loved this photo the second I saw it on the back of the camera. I’ve used this technique before to make what was a white wall behind go blue, but with Melissa’s wonderful blonde hair this seemed to all work brilliantly 🙂


Same lighting set-up as previously, but converted to black and white.


This lighting set-up was a new experiment where the dark vertical bands at the edges were created at the time of capture. I’ve since used this a few times again in the studio and really like it so it’s here to stay!


This was a beautiful soft look, and Melissa was able to create several moods and looks with very little needed in the way of direction. I’d have no hesitation in recommending her highly to any photographers.


One of a few changes of outfits and a spot of colour on the background. Melissa looked great 🙂


A vey quick lighting change, a few words to create the look and Melissa dropped straight into it perfectly.


Melissa had said she loved our bubble chair images so with time to spare we set it up and gave her her very own bubble chair pictures.
