Hey. I'm Summer Hodges and I'm from Santa Barbara, California. I currently have a BA in photography from Brooks Institute of Photography.
I would like to meet some great make up artists and stylists (both hair and clothing) as well as some beautiful male and female models that are up for creating interesting imagery with me. Please contact me with questions, comments, and information.
Although I'm currently not doing trades for portraiture or head-shots, I'm looking for some high-fashion type models and stylists to work on a few things with, for trade. I have a few ideas I'd love to do, so contact me if you'd like to do some edgy fashion shoots with feeling. I always have a reason behind what I shoot, so you'll know that up front.
I'd love to work with you!
If you're bored.....
Here's a bit about my personality:
In every way I am in love with photography. Starting out holding a camera as soon as my hand could grasp one, I've been obsessed with capturing what I see as well as creating what I want to see. As a kid I photographed my friends and family for fun, not ever thinking that photography could be a job. Now I use my beginning love for shooting friends as part of my style by trying to bring out something in the model that already exists, whether it is within the background I choose or the lighting I set up. I'm pretty good at seeing the beauty in people, so when I meet you, I'll probably think of a photograph pretty quickly off of how I'm connecting with you. I never realized this about myself until I really started analyzing more of my images. An important thing I like to do while shooting is to have fun! Models are people too, and if they come away from the shoot with a smile on their face and some great images, then I'll be happy.
