Model location shoots come with a lot of planning, at Sage Studio we can take all the stress off your shoulders and plan it for you or meet you where ever you want to go.
For this shoot the client planned everything, the location, model, MUA and number of outfits. We’re always happy to adapt to our clients needs! Our goal was to capture some stunning images for their new womenswear items, from full length, details and horizontals for web banners. Take a look at just some of the amazing images we captured and have a read about the equipment we used and how the day was planned.
For this shoot we had a lovely purpose built house in Mile End to photograph in. The owner of the property is also a photographer and wanted to space to be used by others. With all shoots that the client selects the location we ask for images and the direction the house is facing (so we know which rooms will have sunlight and when) that way we can see the space and plan the shoot for our lighting and equipment needs. As there is a great outdoor space that was created to look like the bottom of a pool we crossed our fingers the weather would be good. Also with the lovely floor to ceiling windows on the main level we wanted all the sun light possible.
Nikon D800 camera x 2 (always bring a back up!)
Nikon 24-70 mm Lens
Nikon 50mm lens
Wireless strobe lights, diffusers, reflectors and stands
This time with very little natural light on the bottom floor and the tight space we made sure all our battery powered lights were fully charged and had multiple space saving diffusers to help us.
With all our model location shoots we want our clients to be able to view the images as we photograph which is why we shoot tethered to a laptop.
