Not too many people know what they want in life but at just 19 years old, Yoniqua knows exactly what she wants in life: to be a model. Her mother had come across my website and contacted me about building Nika’s portfolio. Because she wanted both some portrait shots as well as some bikini shots, we decided to do the shoot at Red Bank, NJ since they have a nice downtown area and some docks.
Over the past few years, I’ve worked with numerous aspiring models and Yoniqua is among the most talented of them. She did her home work and knew how to pose and give different expressions. This made my job easier.
I wish Nika good luck with her modeling career. She has the looks, the height and the talent to make it big. Anyone looking for a model should definitely hire her.
Carolyn and I have been trying to do a shoot for some time now. We tried to have a shoot in an abandoned factory but soon got kicked out of there for trespassing so we decided to do some studio shots instead :-p
Now I’ll be the first to admit that studio photography is probably the biggest area for improvement for me. Biggest issue I run into is lack of proper equipment (Lack of seamless, cutters etc) and space, I have a 20X20 feet room with little room to position the flashes the way you want. But I try to take it as a challenge and…. practice makes a man perfect, right? And that is is what I was going for. I do want to try something in a bigger studio sometime soon. I’ll be switching to a TTL compatible system soon so I’ll try something after that
