I can't express how serious recording artists need current portraits. Having such a collection on-hand enables talent to easily distribute editorial assets as well as promotional collateral. At times, Hip-Hop artists seek my photography services. Having background knowledge of the growing culture permits my ability to communicate with artists. Creating such a bridge makes it easy to bring their vision to life and further communications to their fan base.
Successful portraits require tons of communication with artists. Elaborating their messages may require anything from additional styling to on-set props and permits. Call sheets and full day itenararies also have to be generated to ensure a smooth day of production on the day of the shoot.
Location scouting is also a major part of portraits. Although, backgrounds aren't the focal point, creative elements add personable flair.
