This summer I had the opportunity to shoot with Jackie Duncan of Jackie Duncan Photography on a particularly grey day on the banks the Bow River.
Jackie is a fabulous photographer who works in a broad array of fields and, my personal favourite side note, used to be a varsity hockey player in the U.S.
We get together, talk sport and take pictures every now and then and thanks to her amazing talent the results look something like this:
If you’re interested in working with her, you should definitely reach out.
Jackie does all of the model testing for agencies like Sophia Models International and is a pro in guiding and developing models and non-models alike.
For the past two weeks I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with a close friend, and team mate, on a project that she had always considered as out of her reach.
When I first broached my friend about modelling she scoffed and said, “I’m not really photogenic,” and upon reviewing her Facebook images, I kind of had to agree. So, I dropped the topic for about a year.
Eventually I decided that her inner athlete and her ability to be coached should supersede her photo-hesitation and so I broached the topic again.
Three progressively challenging sessions later she produced a series of stunning images that I couldn’t be more excited about. I’m confident that her hard work will make her test shoot with Sophia Models Int a breeze.
If modelling is something that you think you can do, I encourage you to reach out to friends in the industry and put in the work to make your dreams a reality. Heck, you can even reach out to me, your internet friend.
