About the event
Alright, alright, alright, let's keep things professional. Well, the imagery, that is!
Hey, everyone, I'm hoping to throw together a day in the studio capturing monochrome portraits with business or professional style and appeal. I'll explain and share more below, but essentially, I'm attempting to increase focus outside of the wedding industry and I'm long overdue for a portfolio overhaul in the way of commercial portraiture. But I want to have some fun with this process!
What I'm looking for:
I'm looking for individuals, or maybe even duos, who are interested in having monochrome headshots or portraits taken in a studio setting. I'm looking for people of all kinds, as I want my portfolio to reflect inclusivity, but I do have a fondness for alternative looks. Tattoos are a plus! But, yes, everyone is welcome. See the inspiration board!
What I'm providing:
I can provide the studio space and the imagery, as well as necessary guidance. The final image is expected to be high quality and awesome, so that's the take-home. Sadly, I do not have outfits.
What I need from you:
A monochrome business professional outfit, monochrome meaning of one color. That and your lovely presence.
Who I'm asking:
Rose and I are reaching out to photographers, models, and friends within our creative network, but we are also reaching outside of our network in a limited amount of public forums.
Am I asking for compensation?
No, but if you have the means and want to pitch something our way, it would help considerably with studio costs or efforts in general. We could also use funds for some pizza or drinks, or perhaps to set up future projects. Drop $0, $30, or $10,000, we will love and appreciate your efforts no matter what you provide. :)
I just want this to be laid back!
Aside from boosting my portfolio and making some badass images for everyone, I love a sense of community, so I hope while I'm blasting away behind the shutter, attendance can mix and mingle or hang out with Rose. If friends want to join for the entire duration, I would love that (Please request plus ones or kiddos). If photographers want to snap a few shots, I'm cool with it if I know you well, but this isn't a workshop. If you're interested in learning and gathering images for your portfolio, we are also hosting a workshop shortly after this meetup. See the details on the event page.
I just want to have some fun. So, though these are professional-themed portraits, I don't want that vibe behind the camera.
I hope to see you there!
