Commercial Portfolio Shoot

It was a pleasure shooting LeeAnn Ortiz. She always had a passion for acting and decided to go for her dreams. She recently signed with NYLO talent agency.

We started around 9 am in Saratoga, Ca. I chose the location because it’s such a beautiful and quiet little area. I did a lifestyle shoot with her, some commercial head shots and ended with a fitness piece. I used all natural light and capitalized on the position of the sun and the reflection of my surroundings to light her beautifully. I call these natural flattering occurrences beauty pockets.

The key to shooting commercial model portfolio pieces is to capture the soul of the subject, to make the person so comfortable you see and capture what someone close to the subject would see. That point of vulnerability that we all have and yet most of us hide.
