As a professional photographer I do a great deal of portfolio work, and as many photographers will tell you, that can be an arduous task, as one soon becomes aware that the clients ambitions well exceed their abilities. I must say that I am very fortunate is so much as most of the models that come to me come from the same source, and generally, although their ability is excellent, they do need a little training and guidence. I am lucky with the models I use i.e. Chelsea Coledge the model I used for my success in last years SWPP contemporary portrait of the year and with Sally-Ann who I was equally successful with the SWPP in the environmental portrait section..
However yesterday I was privileged to work with a young lady called Lucinda. She was not only very attractive, but also was a trained actress, what an asset, we did not have a great deal of time, or indeed anything planed we just add libed the whole day. I have posted some of the results above, and considering this would be a preliminary shoot. I have just, pretty well published images with minimal manipulation and believe it or not they are not necessarily the best just a random selection.
I will leave you to decide from the above selection what you think. I can only say that in my opinion she has a great future, not only in acting but in modeling
