Headshots for Professionals

We were introduced to Shannon and Jason of LEA Management Services by our friends at SmashCut Studio, and they were in need of professional headshots for their business endeavors together. Jason and Shannon came in from Bend to work with us, and we put our photographic talents together with the styling prowess of the team at SmashCut, who put the perfect touches on Shannon’s hair and makeup.

After giving the two of them a quick and easy session in-studio, we’re all pretty thrilled with the final photos. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing where they go with them next!

NOW SEEKING Class of 2011 Senior Reps!

Class of 2011 Seniors: now’s your chance! We’re looking for a few warm-hearted, fun, and outgoing students to work with us as senior representatives for the coming school year. If that sounds like it might be you, keep reading!

How does it work?
We do your consultation and senior portrait shoot free of charge, so you’ll get excited about your photos before you even start repping. You’ll get a full session, and we’ll talk about any styles, ideas, or hobbies you want to bring in, to make the shoot your own. After the session, you’ll also receive a personalized proof book with a selection of your favorite images.

After your session, all you need to do is recommend us to your friends and classmates! Show off your proof book at school, share your favorite shots on your Facebook or MySpace, just get the word out, and we’ll take it from there. We’ll set you up with handouts and cards, so you can give them the details they need. Each Class of 2011 Senior who books with us will receive a bonus print credit because you sent them to us, and you’ll earn your choice of rewards, including prints, digital copies, albums, and more.

Sounds awesome! How do I get started?
Just contact us by phone or e-mail, and let us know what school you go to. If we have an opening for a new rep at your school, we’ll help you get the ball rolling.

Spring is here! (mostly) – portrait and artistic photography in Portland, OR

It’s been a busy few weeks! I’ve been on the road quite a bit, and since Ben’s not so much the blogging type of guy, my absence from the Internet usually means radio silence on the blog front. 😉 Anyhoo, here’s a taste of some of the things we’ve been up to:

Senior portraits in the snow…

Model portfolios with some avant-garde edge…

And, just in time for spring, some Spring/Summer fashions. (see more of these at www.alysonclair.com!)

And that’s not to mention the events we’ve had the pleasure of shooting, too! Hopefully, I’ll have time to share more in-depth looks at all we’ve been up to these past few weeks, but if not… we’re looking forward to what’s ahead, and we hope you’ll be part of it!

Also: potential Senior Reps for 2011, stay tuned! Details are coming soon!

Getting fashionable with Spirit Hoods! – fashion, commercial, and product photography in Portland, OR

We kicked off our fashion shooting for 2010 on our first week back from vacation, when model and producer Jillian Rabe–one of our favorite PDX movers-and-shakers!–brought us in to work with a truly unique new product: Spirit Hoods! This fun and funky headgear brings together features of hoods, hats, and scarves, (check the cute pockets for your hands at the bottom!) and it definitely makes a statement while keeping you toasty through the last bit of winter.

We created these photos in the expansive shooting space at  SmashCut Studio in the Pearl, and really enjoyed working in the space. The shoot was a ton of fun–and really, how could it not be, with this as the product?–and the energy was off the charts! Spirit Hoods got such a great initial response that the product is already on backorder, but their web site is online, and they’ll be restocking and launching their online store really soon.

These are just a few of the shots from our session, made into promotional images for their web site.

Seeing a Different Shade – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

We’ve been busy working through holiday print orders, but we finally have a few minutes to share another of our senior portrait sessions. Olivia is an intelligent, thoughtful, and artistically-minded girl, and she wasn’t exactly accustomed to having her photo taken, when she came to us! It can feel feel pretty unusual at first, when you’re suddenly the focus of a 2+-hour photoshoot, but we got her feeling comfortable and her personality began to poke through.

Starting with natural light and a casual outfit made for a great way to warm up–a lot of her favorite shots and ours came from the first set! Then, we moved towards a softer feel with a romantic thrifted blouse and window light. Finally, we had Sabrina Cayne there to lend us a hand with creating a glamorous dress look that Olivia’s mom requested! But, it wasn’t long before we added a book into the scene, so Olivia could pose with it and show a little more of what she’s about. We had fun exploring with her, and her family and friends will definitely be seeing a different side of her… but one that’s still true to her. 🙂

Monday Snapshot: Fall clothing gets Sweet – commercial and fashion photography in Portland, Oregon

It’s a big week for Portland fashion… because Portland Fashion Week begins in just two days! We’re particularly excited for PFW’s Thursday night showing, because one of the three designers selected for the Emerging Designers showing is one of our beloved fashion clients: Mira Fannin of Sweet Skins! Word is, she’ll be debuting an all-new collection of delicious denim, and we’re excited for her and curious to see what’ll be coming down the runway. 

So, today’s Snapshot is a peek at the rack of clothing samples from our Fall ’09 photoshoot with Sweet Skins. Just a little homage to Fall Fashion and to Mira’s work, because it’s finally starting to feel like fall, and slipping on some warm and comfortable (and, of course, fashionable) threads is sounding pretty excellent today. 

P.S. If you visit the Sweet Skins web site, you can snag some of the new Fall items we shot in the online shop. They’re comfortable, eco-friendly, and very cute!

Meet Antonio – senior portrait photography in Portland, OR

Say hello to one of our awesome senior reps for the Class of 2010! Antonio wanted to explore a few different styles, so our session with him began with a fashion-inspired black-and-white shot in the studio, and then we moved onto two different locations in Southeast Portland for a more relaxed and friendly style of shooting.

We also had the unfortunate luck of scheduling Antonio’s session during what turned out to be THE hottest week of the summer! But, we didn’t hear any complaints from him: he had a great time during our shoot, and was all smiles and energy, in spite of the 100+ degree weather. He’s an absolute trooper, and we know he’ll do a great job representing us with his classmates.
