I do test shoot for a select few. Frequently in the need for models, make-up artist for test shoots TFP and "paid gigs" It's a good opportunity for exposure and to build your portfolio. I also need models for music videos.
SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY I really don't have time for games.

"Working with Lourenso was fantastic. While his technical abilities are amazing, he’s able to provide subtle direction, yet he allows the model to show different aspects of their personality; this makes the shoot feel more like a collaborative effort. His studio was full of props that allowed the creativity to flow during the shoot. Lourenso is extremely personable, warm and great to work with - cant wait for our next shoot!" Read less
