I had the pleasure of shooting with Lisa Madden in my studio recently. Lisa Madden was on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model (BINTM) cycle 8. She was very popular on the show and did brilliant for herself. Unfortunately she didn’t win it, but she did finish in a very respectable 3rd. Brushing all the BINTM stuff to the side, Lisa didn’t waste and time in getting back to work with Assets Agency, ( *Edit now with Andrea Roche) doing various shows and shoots. Herself and Lynn Kelly done a great job at Belfast Fashion week the day after our shoot.
If you have worked with Lisa before, you will know that she is an absolute dream to work with. She is a lovely girl, fun, friendly and professional and not to mention tall and beautiful. While shooting Lisa it was hard to find many pictures that we didn’t like …. that were not due to my error at least. As a photographer, it is always a joy to work with models who are consistent in their posing and flow through it, taking direction when needed and imputing their own ideas.
Video is going to be a big thing over the next few years in the modelling world. It is already important in the acting world where potential actors need showreels etc. A model video portfolio / videofolio / fusion portfolio…. is a digital, dynamic way for people to see how a person looks, acts and sounds like in real like. It is easy to retouch a photo and make it pretty, but a video captures a person as they are.
I made my first video over a year ago with Rachel. I haven’t done much on the video front since then but I am getting back into it. Video is a whole different ball game, so it takes time to get the hang of actually shooting it and then in the editing. Check out the clip below though to see what we got.
