At Church Street Studios, when it comes to creating the images that agencies need to?book from,?we provide editorial looks on location, as well as in studio catalog images geared to cover the main areas that agency clients typically need talent for?when booking.
We shoot to make the best features of the model stand out in an aesthetically pleasing way, but always with attention to reality. A client needs to feel that the images are real and truly representative of how the model looks in order to be?confident booking from a photo.
Quiana is with MMA Model Talent Agency, one of the top agencies serving the Philadelphia business community. Their offices are located in Langhorne PA. Legitimate and long-standing area agencies like MMA, Expressions, and Reinhard are focused on bookings. They need the images of their models to be accurate and relevant to their clients’ needs. In the Philadelphia area, most model bookings are commercial in nature. Models are used to advertise products and services. When selecting models, clients look for images that resonate with their ad concepts and the expectations of their customers.
One of the common mistakes that photographers make when shooting model portfolios, is to create images that are hyper-sexual and/or hyper-artsy. These kinds of model portfolio images can be fun to create for the photographer, but often do not serve the best interest of the model or the agency.
At Church Street Studios, we create our model portfolios with the focus on getting the model booked. We draw on our extensive experience in the business world of commercial photography to design the images in a way that makes sense to the model, the agency, and to the agency’s clients.
