Rachelle – Model Portfolio Update

This is Rachelle, a very talented local model.

I’ve recently started offering 1 to 1 workshop sessions in either off-camera speedlights or studio lighting and they’re proving incredibly popular. I tailor these sessions exactly to the individual photographers needs. Details can be found here 

The relevance of this is because I asked Rachelle to model for one such 1 to 1 workshop recently, and afterwards she stayed around and we did some work in the studio ourselves to update her modelling portfolio.

I suspect a big part of the popularity of a 1 to 1 workshop session is because it’s completely private, and consistent with this I choose not to publish any photos on my blog from a private 1 to 1 session, and respect the privacy of the attending photographer.

Here then is a selection of some work from a quick afternoon hour or so I had in the studio with Rachelle after the 1 to 1 session had ended.

Rachelle came so well prepared, and we called this her ‘stained glass’ dress. All complimented perfectly by makeup application by Catherine.

Same outfit and makeup, with a change of background and a complete lighting change

The same makeup look but a change in outfit and another lighting change.

And now a complete change. A new makeup look by Catherine and a change of outfit, accessories, and the employment of one of my favourite studio lighting setups.

Similar to above using the same 5 light setup but a slight modification to allow light flare in the image.

Everyone loves a black and white, unless you’re the makeup artist 🙂

And something softer to finish with. I’ve taken to buying various colours of voile material lately for the studio. It’s cheap and very versatile. This is the while flavor 🙂
