Portraits (From Corporate Headshots to Old Hollywood)
Great news, Your Hollywood Portrait is moving to a brand new and bigger studio in Dumbo (Brooklyn).
If you book a photo shoot you can keep a few hours to visit the neighborhood or grab a coffee in the trendy coffee shops nearby.
A few words about Dumbo:
The area was originally a ferry landing, characterized by 19th- and early 20th-century industrial and warehouse buildings. First becoming a haven for artists. Dumbo had become Brooklyn’s most expensive neighborhood, as well as New York City’s fourth-richest community overall this is owing in part to its large concentration of technology startups and its close proximity to Manhattan.
Trendy Dumbo’s cobblestone streets and converted Brooklyn warehouse buildings are the backdrop for independent boutiques, high-end restaurants, and trendy cafes. Near the waterfront, St. Ann’s Warehouse, in a former tobacco factory, is the heart of a thriving performance and gallery scene. The north end of Brooklyn Bridge Park features historic […]

There are different types of photographers.
Wedding photographers, who are more reporters and work in natural light, outside very often.
Headshot photographers, for actors, passport photos and corporate photos. Theses photos need to be very simple, simple basic light, generally window light or one strobe.
Boudoir: Often, a lot of moms who love photography and doing this as a hobby in their own apartment with a window light. Sometimes one light, but rarely in a professional environment, and with amateur makeup or hair stylist.
Wedding photographers, headshot photographers or photographer enthusiast often do boudoir too.
Fashion photographers worked with professional advertising agencies. Their client expectations are really high. The light should be sophisticated, the poses refined. They work with magazines, catalogs, and a very big team, for the post-production, makeup, hair, artistic direction…
I think I am one of the very few fashion photographers, who do boudoir […]
Well I am sure it is important when you know exactly what to do,
If like me you are not an expert, you do it all and see what works.
When you are a celebrity, of course, you have tonnes of followers, you can communicate, share ideas etc…
When nobody knows you because you just opened your photos studio, it’s more complicated.
I tried, Facebook ads, a complete waste of money, seriously it’s been a few years and did not get a client from them. After you paid to get real people who like your page, you must now pay for to have your post viewed by all your audience, otherwise only a small portion of them will see the posts
Linkedin is a professional network, not really where people will search for photography services, except maybe headshots. […]
First, you need a website, for that look at all the boudoir website you find, pick one who you like the most for the layout of the site.
You need to have a lease 10 boudoir images, the best of the best, it’s not about the quantity but about the quality, you don’t put all your photos in your gallery but only the best one. Theses photos need to be clean, retouched, and represent your style.
You need to be somewhat different from your local competitors.
To create a website, you can either use services like people on square space, Wix or Weebly, that offer templates to personalize, add-ons for creating a checkout process including payment processing and the service could range start at $25 per month for just a splash page.
Or you can choose a popular platform like WordPress that […]
