Teo - Studio Modelling Portfolio from Sydney to L.A.

It's curious how often I am booked for portfolios for (soon to be) models who are in Sydney yet planning on starting their modelling career overseas. They are often from overseas already - I will simply put it down to my work looking less trend driven and more of a classic, international fashion and model photography style. And I think its fair to say when you look at my model portfolio shots, you really SEE the model. You don't look at these shots and wonder what this model looks like - you KNOW what this model looks like. This is essential when you are starting out in fashion; potential clients want to know what you look like; it's how you get the call up, the go-see, the call back - because they like the way you look, and can see what you can do for their project. In fashion, image is everything.
Teodora Tissue modelling portfolio for iPop Los Angeles  photographed in Sydney, Australia by Kent Johnson.
Teo was scouted a few years back at a shopping centre back in the States. Her parents who are both from the USA, working here in Sydney Australia decided to give Teo and iPOP a shot. Which is where I came in, with a fairly specific portfolio brief to shoot. Those requirements were quite simply the classic requirements that are the basis of all my 'getting started' portfolio shoots. A great headshot. Full length for legs and body, how you look shots, you know, how tall do you look! Fitness shots, casual and classic. And for this shoot we needed a comp card too; that's a part of my studio package already so all good! We also got some fab personality shots full of Teo's great energy, and ended up with what I call the good problem - too many terrific shots, more pictures than we could use. So some of them are appearing here for the first time along with the comp card and shots from Teo's final selection. I hope you enjoy them, and of course, if you need a portfolio, follow the links for details and hit me up!

From Teo's mum Sandra.
"Kent was fabulous! I took my daughter for her first fashion photoshoot and Kent made her feel confident and glamorous. He also held my hand throughout the process of picking the best photos, because we had so many great shots, it was hard to choose!. The photos were just amazing. This was a great experience for both of us. The stylist and hair and make-up ladies that Kent brought, Vivienne and Cynthia, were also great. Thanks, Kent!"
