Latest Shoot: Lifestyle in San Francisco

It's that time of year for me to update my portfolio so that I not only get the looks/themes I'm lacking but to also include images with my most current look (for a long time I had my hair short and it is now longer so many of the photos I normally would submit to castings are no longer useable).

I've scheduled 3 test shoots to get the images I need. I knocked out the first one last weekend and teamed up with Peter Kyong of Kyong Photography for the job. I've worked with Peter a handful of times and continue to enjoy shooting with him. He's got a great eye and is able to capture images in a very natural way, which is just what I was looking for.

This particular shoot was for lifestyle themed images. We met up in Union Square in San Francisco and literally just walked around and shot on location. We even got permission to shoot inside a designer shoe store but we didn't take any pictures with the store's products because of branding/legality issues. It was a long but productive day and as much as I loved a lot of the photos--as I always tell you readers--I could only pick a few to include.

I decided to go with a 2-in-1 format for the final images I'll print out and include in my hard copy portfolio.

Here are the fruit of me and Peter's labors:

This 2-in-1 will go into my hard copy portfolio.

This 2-in-1 will also be included in my hard copy portfolio.

This image won't make the cut for my hard copy portfolio but I still like it and thought it would be fun to do a 2-in-1 of these images.
My new digital headshot that I'll use to submit to castings. I also made sure to update my online profile on my agent's website with this photo.
