For Leia’s portfolio we shot both in the studio and out on location at the beach. A couple of simple natural light shots with the sun giving some nice backlighting on the hair.
Another image for Leia Heider’s model portfolio. We shot this look first in the studio, but I decided it would work better outdoors, so we stepped out into the garden and used some green foliage as a background.

An evening look for Leia’s portfolio. Model – Leia Heider MUA – Summer Johnson-Makeup Artist
Spent yesterday photographing a new portfolio for model Leia Heider. I always start these shoots with a simple natural look. It’s something agencies and potential clients want to see, and should be updated regularly. Throw on a jacket and you have a classic look, that wouldn’t be out of place in an advertisement for The Gap. The image is toned slightly to give it a different feel to the white T-shirt image.

A fantastic portfolio shoot with model Aika Wauke. I photographed four different outfits, and kept with a grey or black background throughout, as Aika already had enough white background catalog images. Summer Johnson did her usual impeccable job with makeup and Aika was great to work with. This was my last shoot with the new 645D 90mm macro lens that I had on loan. After the final pics were taken, I sent the lens and some sample images back to Pentax in Tokyo. I also photographed the session with the new K5IIs which produced excellent results. A blog post with a comparison of images taken with the 645D and the K5IIs will appear at some point in the future.
