Meet our Class of 2013 spokesMODELS Part 1

Our spokesMODELS are the first to partake in all our new and different techniques. If it does not work on a spokesMODEL than we know we will not try it out on any of our senior clients. But if a spokesMODEL loves it than we will definitely offer it to our clients. As an artist, I am always striving to better myself as a photographer. I am always exploring different lighting techniques. Lighting is such an important part of a photograph that we use several different lighting styles to create a very pleasing image. Natural light is not always the best option. It may be the cheapest option but it may not always sculpt a body to create a desired image. On each model we used new and different types of lighting including several lights, reflectors and shaders in all of our outdoor and indoor images.

Posing is also key to a great photograph. Posing does not have to be stiff but I pride myself on bringing out the best feature in each one of my seniors. And sometimes just a little twist or turn or the placement of a leg or foot can make or break an image. No one has a perfect body but it is my job to make sure that each senior looks their best.

All of our spokesMODELS are good students and involved in activities in and out of school. Every year I am amazed as to how caring, thoughtful, and involved our models are. Every spokesMODEL is a paying client but by representing Nordmann Photograpy each spokesMODEL has the opportunity to earn discounts on their senior photos and cash rewards. They believe in our product and truly appreciate the Nordmann quality and are willing to shout out about us.

We are so excited to shout out about our 32 spokesMODELS representing 14 local high schools.
