Commercial Studio Photographers In Detroit Mary DuPrie I’ve  mentioned in the past that for me a great high key is the most important commercial look to perfect.  It seems that most of my commercial clients ask for it.  If you shoot models and want to branch out into commercial clients it would be great to […]

Once you start shooting models simple things become a big deal.  Take great eyelashes for example. Great full bottom lashes are especially hard to come by and Andi has them to spare.  Andi’s a great test model because she can do her own makeup.  She definitely has a preference on how she wears her hair […]

Sometimes it pays not to get what you ask for.  I was shooting a comp card with a female model in the left image location.  The location is Birmingham which is a big dog walking community, the shops leave  fancy and fun water bowls on the sidewalks for them.  It’s a beautiful boutique style downtown […]
