For whatever reason, I’ve done a good bit of model portfolio and actor headshot photography for aspiring Alabama actors and models here lately.
I did a photoshoot this past weekend with a 25-year-old woman named Felicia Nepp who wanted to shoot for her modeling portfolio. She audition June 12th with IMTA, the International Modeling and Talent Agency, and will travel to New York City next March for in-person and face-to-face meetings with record producers, film directors, casting agents, etc.
IMTA’s early conventions found actors and actresses such as Elijah Wood, Aaron Paul, Katie Holmes, Ashton Kutcher, Eva Longoria, Jessica Biel, Jeremy Sumpter, Seann William Scott, Brandon Routh, Sofia Vassilieva, Alyson Stoner, Josh Duhamel, and Ashley Greene.
Felicia will be performing in the categories of monologue, commercial, screen test, on camera host, trendy runway, commercial print, and singing. She told me that during her results call, she had to write, memorize, and perform her own commercial and impromptu sing a song.
Awesome photo shoot on July 4th
We started on the Mentone bluff park with a stunning view of the valley as she modeled fashion. I could tell right away that I was collaborating with someone who had some training at this. After a few shots there, we moved to the meditation gardens beside St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church (where I got married 26 years ago). We moved on to DeSoto Falls, where we finished up the third set in swimwear. Her boyfriend (cool guy) loved the scenery and the activities they offer such as kayaking, so I expect they will visit again soon.
Felicia said it might have been her best photoshoot so far, which is nice to hear. When I showed her these images, she said she was already thinking of our next photoshoot and how to top these. I LOVE hearing that!
I always want my clients to love our collaborations. I was mindful of what possible usage she might need from the photos, to showcase looks ranging from portrait to commercial to edgy glamour. She’s got a killer physique for glamour modeling, but Felicia also has a sweetness and wholesomeness about her that makes her look more girl-next-door.
Another client contacting me seeking photos for IMTA is Amber B, whose daughters are participating. I don’t want to list their names because they are children, but Amber said I could share some of the photos we did of them.
We sought to display their range, i.e., an ability to portray someone younger or older than themselves so they can realistically get booked on a wider range of modeling or acting jobs. These girls parents have both done some fix extra work, so it makes sense that they would be tuned into that world.
