Scarlet at the Queen Anne Victorian Mansion – event & fashion photography in Portland, OR

We had a great time shooting at Scarlet: A Vintage Fashion & Antique Car Show this past Sunday! The runway show was beautiful, and the Queen Anne Victorian Mansion made the perfect venue for an elegant event.

We also had the opportunity to shoot with the runway models at the Mansion before the show, and it was a truly amazing location! The inside of the mansion especially caught our eye, and it’s a place that really has to be seen to be believed. If you’re getting married in 2010, this is definitely a venue worth checking out… we had a lot of fun shooting there!

Here’s a shot from the runway show, and one of the photos from our Pre-show shooting. All of our photos from the show are online for downloading and print orders, so be sure to check them out!

The performing talent that Portland has to offer has been coming out of the woodwork in recent months, with all the TV and movie productions that have been filming in town. Opportunities for small parts, extras, even body doubles are being hired locally, and they’re interested in people of all types, ethnicities, and ages!

It looks like a great time for young Portland talents to get their acting careers started, and that’s why fresh-faced Carissa came to us for her headshots. We shot with her in several different outfits, and wound up with a final headshot that she loved.

Portland fashion photography

We gave you a small taste of our men’s fashion photoshoot featuring mens’ designs by Adam Andreas, and it’s high time we showed you more! Here’s a couple more shots of his relaxed-and-groovy button-down shirt, and then some photos featuring a cool, slim pant and one of his uniquely ambitious jacket designs. We’re definitely looking forward to working with him again, and looking further into his creative perspective on men’s clothing!

Model: Kent (Q6)

Photography for Hairstylists

Just wishing a quick Congratulations to Jen LaMastra of Transform Salon, who earned an Honorable Mention in the recent cover contest for NW Stylist! Jen submitted several photos from our shoot for Betsy & Iya Jewelry last fall which showcased her amazing hairstyling work, and thanks to her talent, this lovely shot from our campaign is featured in this month’s issue. Jen also provides full-service haircuts and color, so to learn more about her and schedule an appointment, just visit her website.

Credit is also due to our model for this look, Kira Distler, and the awesome makeup skills of Sabrina Cayne; their talents helped make this entire session amazing!

Men’s Fashion Photography

Here’s a taste of a short session on Monday. We’d worked with Kent last fall on some athletic photos, and after sending in the runner image we previously featured here for an athletic casting, he booked the job! He’s since been booked for multiple fashion-related projects, including last fall’s Portland Fashion Week, so when he got in touch with us about shooting some men’s fashion images, we were more than happy to be of service.

We also took the opportunity to work with Adam Andreas, a menswear designer with a great personality and plenty of fresh, creative vision for men’s clothing. He was also one of the minds behind the recent PDX Collections runway show, where he also featured a range of new looks for Fall.

This shot is one of many, and it features one of Adam’s more “tame” looks. It wasn’t exactly tame for me, though: I completely covered the back of my sweater in dead grass while getting this shot, and it took a good while to pick it all out. As Ben likes to say, we must be having fun on a shoot, if we’re getting a little messy. 😉 Anyhoo, we’ll be sharing more photos from this session soon, including a second look that shows off some of Adam’s excellent and inspired details.

Summery Model Portfolio Session

Here are a few images from our session with Crystal, an experienced model who recently signed with a new agency here in Portland, Merrick Talent. We only had time for a short session, but Crystal and her supportive mom were up for the short hike to a great sandy beach location in North Portland.

We captured a lot of great images in a short time, and tried a few subtle variations on light and processing… these are just a few of them! Crystal loved the proofs so much that she added extra shots to her package after the shoot, and she’ll be featuring her favorite photo from our shoot on her new comp cards. We hope she books some great new work in the future!

For Alec: It’s a wrap!

Did last Saturday night find you at For Alec: A Fashion Benefit? We were there, and we’re happy to share that it was a huge success! The event raised well over $11,000 to help little Alec and his family, and the room was packed to the gills for a show that was beyond sold-out!

We’re thrilled that the event came together so well, and we’re glad we were able to have even a small part in this incredible effort to help a family in need.

Want to see what you missed? Our photos from the event are now online, and all print and download sales will be donated to the Martinez family, too. Just follow the link below to take a look, and enjoy!

And don’t forget, if you’d still like to make a contribution, just visit any Bank of America branch and ask to donate to the Alexander Martinez Medical Fund. Your donation will go directly to the family!

Actor Headshots

It’s been a busy month for actor headshots! The Portland market is becoming a more popular place for film productions: there are indie projects happening frequently, and some larger-scale productions have come to town, too. And, there are always openings for commercials and print advertising! Portlanders seem to be forward-thinking people, and more opportunities are popping up for both aspiring and more experienced actors.

Here’s a headshot from a few days ago with Aika, who’s represented by Actors in Action. Aika chose our Get Exposure package, and then added on prints of both her final headshots, so now she has fresh new headshots and plenty of material to bring with her to auditions. 

If you’re a local actor, author, or artist, we have some great headshot packages for folks who are just starting out, and for the more experienced in their field, we’re always willing to add on and customize.
