Building your portfolio

Hi there my friends,

I am so proud of the stylist who joined me recently for my “4 day photographic workshop” hosted in the Hamptons NY.  Let me share their journey with you, and yes Mamma was very proud of their work and the following collection.


TEAM –  Rebekah Hope, Iryna Popova, Sally Trobaugh, Jason Sparks, Elizabeth White, Lauren Hall, Vivienne Mackinder,

Amanda Carey, Becci Dobbs, David Guerrieri, David Maderich, Lois Broderick

Day one – the stylists learned how the camera captures a shape. We photo journalized hair styles, on Mannequins in prep for the shoot for our beautiful models.

Hair by Jason Sparks  – a sewn relaxed boufant

Day two – we explored all the elements of what it takes to produce a collection from concept, mood boards, casting a team. to publication in a magazine.

Lauren corn rolled 50% of the hair in the nape which she used as a foundation for her faux bob.  (left)

The same model was restyled with  her long hair  Marcel waved, laying over a smooth surface, which was just as challenging to create. (right)
