Renaissance Hair Academy at the Provo Orchard

A Fun Experience

I’m happy that we did this.
What did we do? I did a presentation about photography to the hair school one week and came back the next week and did a photoshoot for them.

It just thrills me that everyone was so darn excited for the pictures.

It worked out well doing it as part of my Bootcamp experience because I had 4 photographers able to come along and take pictures.
There were often dozens of girls waiting for their pictures to be taken… I had to work fast and efficiently to get everybody in. It would have been fun to have a little more time to set up really great scenes… but I actually loved the challenge of the way it went down.
Those other photographers will share some of what they did on this day in a few days in a post about what they learned.

Other Schools/Groups/Etc

If you have a similar situation like this I’d be more than happy to consider how to make it happen… best month for it is July.

I’m inclined because of exposure and it’s really nice when they’re fun cute girls too. Cuz they’re fun to be around and one day they’ll get married and so will their friends. haha

While a lot of what i did was just getting through the mass of models, I did have some moments to pose some more fun stuff.

These are just some of my pictures to see the rest of mine and pictures from the other 4 photographers go here… there are over 1200 pictures.

I’m pretty happy with all the headshots I did. The lighting was just perfect for it. It was way overcast (even rainy) and yet it seemed to work really well. I think the key was being in a darker portion of the orchards and then catching what rays were coming down through and lighting the people up. Reflector right below the frame of the pictures.

For them I’m pretty sure it was about doing hair (and makeup) prior to the shoot.

This is what it’s all about. And it wasn’t even my idea… they came up with it! And I went along… I didn’t mind at all. haha
