Photographing model portfolio test shoots is a lot of fun. In Portland, there are several great modeling agencies, including Muse Models, Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited, Q6, Ryan Artists, and Option Model Management. I’ve photographed portfolios for models that work with all of these modeling agencies, and more. Sometimes models need some fresh new looks for their modeling portfolios, and sometimes they’re just getting started in the modeling industry, and need some test shoots in order to build a new portfolio to show to modeling agencies. Whatever the model’s aims, having professional photos to showcase their talents helps models and actors get noticed, get work, and get paid.
It’s also a lot of fun for us at the studio to see where models and actors that we helped get started, end up. We’ve photographed models and actors that went on to act on shows such as Leverage, Grimm, and Portlandia. Others have moved to LA and New York and have vibrant careers in the modeling and acting industry. Sometimes I’ll see them in fashion spreads and advertisements in magazines. Sometimes we see them in commercials for great companies like Adidas or Nike.
This week we’ve photographed a couple of beautiful aspiring models, and I can tell they’re going places. Today we’ll feature Ellie McClaskey. Ellie is a vibrant, funny, energetic young lady. She plays all kinds of sports, and is a lot of fun to have in front of the camera! She has a range that will help her do well in both lifestyle and sports modeling, which is great because she’s now represented by Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited!
