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!
