From Mumbai to Sydney. How I Created an International, Custom Model Portfolio Location Shoot for Kyrien.
As mentioned in a previous post Kyrien came all the from Mumbai India to do this Sydney portfolio shoot with me. We had first contact by email and then after arriving in Sydney we met to discuss exactly what Kyrien wanted from his shoot. Although I shoot on location quite often, for most portfolio shoots it is usually more convenient for everyone to work in the studio. In the studio we have electricity, a roof, studio lighting, air conditioning etc.. we don't need to worry about the weather, we book the shoot and we are good to go. Of course photographers and photography styles aside, Kyrien could have saved himself a trip and done a studio shoot back home in Mumbai! No, a studio shoot was not going to work this time. What we needed was an International look; some subtle hints of Sydney's famous landmarks in his shots, we wanted an International and Sydney Look for when Kyrien and his world-class afro hairdo headed back home to India.
