Newport Beach Photographer - Photography Studio in NewportNewport Beach Photographer - Photography Studio in NewportWhile growing up in a small beach community in "Seal Beach", "California", I spent most of my days in the ocean. Day after day, surfing the waves or running around barefooted with my peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. But my friends will tell you today not much has changed.

I spent most of my young crazy life in Newport Beach out in the surf, which ironically started my career for the next 20 years as a model turned photographer. My career started at age 18 where I was discovered by a photographer for Ralph Lauren. This led to numerous campaigns for not only Ralph Lauren, but Weisfield Diamonds, Miller's Outpost, a Coca Cola Billboard not to mention traveling all over the world.. Throughout my modeling days, I became interested in photography. I studied the photographers, how they directed the models, how they light the models and how they'd frame the models. A photographer was born!

Now I'm in heaven with a studio located foot steps from my favorite surf spots, my favorite shooting locations and surrounded by all my friends. Everyday is just another day in paradise.

So, if you're looking to have photos done, stop on by the studio for a visit. We're located right next to the Newport Beach Pier with an open door and a friendly atmosphere.

Understanding Portfolios and Agencies

January 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
  1. Take photographs for your portfolio.

 You should include professional-looking headshots: shots of you up close without a lot of makeup and on a plain background. You should shoot them in nice natural light (but not direct sunlight) without a lot of distraction in the photos. These are meant for agencies to get a look at you in a raw state. Consider a head shot, a body shot, and profile shots.

  • The most important thing to communicate in a portfolio is that you are able to present a range of “characters” and looks.

2. Consider getting some professional photos taken. Though professional photography can be expensive, it can make the difference between being passed over and getting an interview. Think of professional photography as a worthwhile investment in your career!

  • Get your favorite professional shots printed into 8x10s. Save these in case you are asked to leave a photograph before or after an interview.
  • If you've got enough good professional photos, consider compiling them into a portfolio. Bring this portfolio with you to castings or agencies.

3. Take your measurements and know your stats. This information can help modeling agencies place you. Knowing the information off the top of your head will help you seem professional when you are speaking with an agency or potential client.

  • The most basic measurements to know are your height, weight, and shoe size.
  • You should also know your clothing measurements such as dress size, hip, waist, chest/bust, etc.
  • Your personal stats include information such as hair color, eye color, and skin tone.

4. Visit a modeling agency. Almost every major city has multiple modeling agencies, and almost every agency has "open-calls" where they look for new talent.

  • Bring your photographs and/or portfolio. Be sure to have your (accurate) measurements as well.
  • You may be asked to walk or pose for a headshot or other photos during an open call interview.
  • If an agency rejects you, don't get disheartened; often an agency is looking for a diverse set of models, so you may just not fit their model lineup right now.


5. Be wary of scams. Try to research the reputation of a modeling agency prior to an open call or interview. Too many people don't know about the business and end up getting conned.

  • No agency should be asking you for more than $20 when meeting you. The agency will charge you a commission when you model, but shouldn't get much up front. If they ask for hundreds of dollars from you before you do any work, walk away.
