Welcome to my Model Mayhem Page. I hope you will enjoy your stay as I will take you through a journey of beauty and photography in my eyes...
I'm a photographer, cinematographer and digital artist. I specialize in aerial photography/cinematography, time lapse photography and filmmaking. You can visit my video production website by going to http://www.aerialphotoworx.com
I'm like to work with both seasoned professionals and up and coming models. My goal is to make a name for myself in the industry and find clients interested in my services. I've joined model mayhem because I'm looking to collaborate with a diverse group of models, makeup artists and stylists in the Southern California area.
I like to create images that are sexy, edgy and sometimes controversial. For my personal work I like to create a highly stylized, controlled environment with a clear situation that a model can work off of. I'm very interested in working with models who can transform into a character.
William Heim Photography is now offering Video Modeling Portfolio Services. To see an example of a video portfolio I recently did go to this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NDvSndgRAk
WHY MAKE A VIDEO MODELING PORTFOLIO?
Modeling IS Acting! A modeling portfolio sells a models ability to act. To portray the character that the client needs for their print add or commercial!
The problem for advertisers is that most modeling portfolios suck. They are simply collections of pretty pictures of a girl that are often times just not that flattering. Or just as bad, they’re a collection of incredibly creative images that highlight the talents of the photographer and the makeup artist and not the model. A modeling portfolio is not about the girl, advertisers don’t care about her style or how she likes to do things. They want to see how she will look as the characters they are likely to hire her to portray.
When a model walks into an agency or a casting call, she’s standing right there, with the portfolio, they can see how she really looks. A good portfolio tells the story of who the model CAN be. How old, how young! It must show a variety of expressions and a collection of characters that she can portray convincingly.
A good photographer can make anyone look like a super star at 1/250th of a second. This is where the video portfolio changes the game! At 24 or 30 frames per second, a video not only allows the client to see what the models looks like but also allows them to get a sense of her personality, how she moves, her level of confidence and her ability to talk on camera. The big bonus for clients, all of this with NO PHOTOSHOP! They get to see what they’re really working with.
The still image will always have value and be able to show us things that our minds cannot recognize at 24 or 30 frames per second. This is about marketing! A video modeling portfolio combines real time images of the model walking, talking and acting. Along with still images that show how well the model photographs.
The power of video for marketing models has huge potential. This concept could also be expanded to include cold reads or monologues for acting purposes. For all the models out there, the days of hiding behind PhotoShop and not having to act, are coming to an end. Modeling IS acting and you need to know how to move and pose with confidence. Video modeling portfolios are the future, keep up or get left behind.
