Emma K. Studio Modelling Portfolio - Fitness & Fashion.

How does all this happen? Well it usually starts with a phone call, an email or even a text message about being interested in creating a modelling portfolio. In this case it was Emma's mum who made first contact, and it is not usual at all to have a mum or dad get in contact, looking for more information and details about my portfolio packages. Read more after the picture.Black & White Mid/Headshot in sports crop top.  Studio Modelling Portfolio, Fitness & Fashion by Kent Johnson, Sydney, Australia.Once a package and dates are decided the next step is to talk about the styling of the shoot, the various 'looks' we will be going for. Firstly I try to find out who is the person I will be photographing; what are they into, are they sporty, do they dance, are they big into fashion? The photoshoot will be either 3 or 5 looks so I ask the model/sitter to organise their looks so we can go over them by phone a couple of days out from the shoot. It's during this pre-photoshoot conversation that I am able to tell if they will need to bring more shoes/pants/swimwear/accessories etc or if we are good to go. From there we simply meet at the studio or location and make our pictures. But that of course is not the end, the final pictures need to be selected and edited. This is not always an easy task; especially if it's your first photoshoot, and for many it is. I am always available to help with this process and providing guidance in making the best selection. A modelling portfolio is your C.V. and business card all rolled into one and I am there for you to help you make the most of it. The start of your modelling career.

Here's the review  Emma's mum Ali left on my Facebook page here - "Following a recommendation from a contact made through the Billy Blue Design College, my 19 year old daughter and I were recently recommended to check out Kent Johnson Photography to get some photos together to help kick off a career in modeling. The whole experience from start to finish was extremely professional and but at the same time with a very personal touch. Kent spent a lot of time with us discussing the options and getting to know a bit about her so that he could get a good story going through the photos. We decided on the 4 hour studio photo shoot and were not disappointed! We spent an amazing and really enjoyable few hours at Studio 501 working through different looks and outfits with Kent and Emily, the hair and makeup artist, and came out of it with some stunning photos and a great comp card!! Many thanks again."

Emma K. Video Headshot.

My first ever video headshot, its only about 6 seconds but it is on a loop so you can enjoy it over and over again. More shots from the shoot coming soon, and maybe another video headshot too. The video was made as part of Emma's 'Look Out World - Here I Come - Pro Modelling Package' which we shot in my Sydney studio last Friday. I think this will become part of the studio package in the future. Thanks Emma for doing such a great job on her first ever photoshoot. Need a modelling portfolio or headshot?

Great poses, Great Pictures - Felicity's Studio Modelling Portfolio.

We had a great time creating all these pictures for Felicity's portfolio shoot and produced way to many wonderful shots.. But as I always say, too many great shots to choose from is the best problem to have! We worked through a range of poses and styled looks from sexy swimwear to casual to soft-and-sweet 'Teen Mag' and some cheeky shots as well to make an eye catching photoshoot. I love working in the studio and helping you to create fabulous model-looks; just as we have here with Felicity creating her very own fashion modelling story.  I hope you like this selection of Portfolio shots from Felicity's Pro-Modelling Portfolio Package shoot. Book your shoot today!

Leo's Beach & Park Location Modelling Portfolio.

I have to say that I am very very happy with the way my Summer Special photoshoots are working out. Working from my favourite Sydney Harbour beach location is proving very flexible, durable and a perfect place for making - dare I say, some perfect pictures. Leo is Danish and is out here on a gap year was scouted back in Europe and was scouted again here in Sydney. So this is actually his first pro photoshoot; and we, he & I absolutely nailed it! Leo overcame his initial nervousness with just a little help from me and delivered a great series of strong and varied looks; of course I always assist with direction when needed but once we got going things flowed very smoothly as they usually do.

A Studio Modelling Portfolio Shoot mixed with Daylight & Strobes.

Super fox from the Central Coast, Minnie's "Look Out World - Here I Come" portfolio shoot covers all the angles a modelling portfolio should. She's an Aussie beach girl and a runner so we went with bikini's and active wear and doubled up on the swimwear - which is a fashion style she is totally suited too. And although this was Minnie's first time on a photoshoot, she nailed great looks, and as you can see we had a lot of fun too, caught some laughs along the way and that KILLER SMILE! "The look out World" portfolio shoot covers 5 looks and includes a comp card which you can see at the bottom of the page. We also include agency-style, no make-up 'Digitals' these are a special bonus with this modelling portfolio package. They are clearly marked below, you can't miss them. Working in the studio I still love daylight. We had some fantastic daylight coming into the huge white studio space so I was able to mix it up a bit; daylight, strobe/flash, plus some shots with daylight and flash combined. Whats does it mean? It means more variety in the look and feel of the pictures for your portfolio. I hope you enjoy Minnies pictures. Booking 2017 photoshoots now. Book yours today!
