When applying to a modelling agency, though it’s not necessary, we do encourage you to get your feet wet and try out a photoshoot before you commit to any contractual agreements with agencies just yet. Here’s a shot from a diy portfolio session where you come “set ready” with your own hair, makeup, and wardrobe. Black and white photographs are always recommended, as well as fashion that has black and white elements making for a strong impression. Ask our advice if you want to see examples of what to wear on the day of your photoshoot!
Here is a great shot of a handprinted leather jacket and dress ensemble from local fashion designer Saniya Khan. We’ve shot with Saniya before on her other collections, and have learned exactly what kind of lighting style suits her marketing the best. If you’re a new or seasoned designer looking to promote their upcoming collection, with our help we take your vision into reality and will make sure to highlight all the best details professional photography and editing service.
Warm on warm on warm! Colour coordination is huge when it comes to “in the spotlight” type of studio shots. All things you thought were subtle, suddenly become showstoppers, and especially with our sensor, we are able to get a rich saturation from colour that you never even thought was there! Check out the subtle blue undertone in the pants, and how much softer it plays in this image than if it were a solid black.
Though we often shoot business and professional portraits, we also dabble in fashion when we get the opportunity, which means more room to play with colours, shapes, and textures. In this instance, we shot this lovely lady against our vivid lavender, which our brightest pastel that looks stunning against tan skin. Don't have a tan? — that's not a problem! With a couple clicks we can create a rich and even golden hue. Alternatively, we can also make your skin tone light and brighter. Let us know what your heart desires and we'll do our best to create that in the most natural way for you.

Whether you are looking to for a simple portrait, have ambitions to become a model, or simply want a fashion portrait, don't hesitate to let us know! We can help suggest what background suits your purpose better.
For this portrait session, our subject had warm tones in her skin and hair, so we therefore suggested using a beige background as opposed to a cooler grey or blue background.
Here's a recent fashion portrait we shot on a squeaky clean white backdrop. Lighting the subject form the back,, we added depth and intrigue to the image with lighting set up behind her to emphasize her cheekbones. Wearing just a tube top, we were able to create a fresh and clean silhouette reminiscent of beauty campaigns. This is a great lighting set up for commercial gigs for beauty or jewellery lines.
We can accommodate many lighting styles. Feel free to pass along any images via email that depicts what you had in mind.
Throwback to our experimental phase whereby we tried every colour under the sun, all in effort to learn which were suitable depending on the intention set. Purple was an interesting avenue for us to explore as we had the initial suspicion that it wasn't useful as a background option. As it turns out, our suspicions about purple were correct to some degree. Cooler toned shades will always appear colder at first impression than warmer shades! So simply put, if we want to shoot against purple, we can, and it will look great provided that we consider the tint of the colour is favouring warmth.
