Introducing Gus

Introducing: Gus!

Gus is The Studio’s August 2020 Model! Every four weeks, The Studio (I) works with a new model on weekly sessions. I do this to be sure my shooting stays sharp. It also allows me to try new methods, gear, posing, lighting, etc. in a learning environment rather than on my clients during once in a life time moments!

When my models come to the studio, they plan to stay for 2-3 hours as we trouble shoot and work on 1 or 2 new concepts.

All of my models get an “Introductory Shoot”. This is where we go over the model release, get to know each other a little to be sure we’re a great fit, and do a 10-15 minute head shot session. Nothing fancy. We’re just seeing how we work together real quickly and exposing the model to my alter ego of photographer Jaclynn.

I’m so excited to work with Gus this month because I honestly haven’t done very much career focus on men! I’m so inspired by women (my bride’s!), my grooms are sometimes a little neglected in the portrait department in comparison. I’d love if they could feel equally special to my brides some day.

This month, I’ll be diving into men’s posing, fashion, and just looking to be inspired by the male form. I’m discovering comfortable ways to pose Gus that also flatter him, choosing my favorite lighting for him, and maybe develop a few creative tricks up my sleeve just for the guys!

Gus literally turned 18 the day before he signed the contract! Thank you for choosing the studio to be your first legal document! haha, Looking forward to working with you, Gus!

Next Chapter Everett Wa

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]
