It can be really hard to take great photographs of your trip when traveling alone without resorting to a tacky selfie stick. Sure, you get to make all the decisions about where to eat and what to see, but who is going to take photos of you in your holiday destination? When on vacation in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jess, a model in the United States, wanted to make the most of her vacation and showcase the fun, neon lights of Vegas in her photos, while also taking images for her portfolio. And she knew just how to pull it off.
What Happens in Vegas …
Jess’ wanted to have some cool, high fashion and rather avant-garde images to add to her modeling collection. She’s a huge fan of the band “The Killers”, and is really in to gothic, and striking photography, as anyone can see from her instagram feed. Jess is also a clothing and jewelry maker, writer and artist. She wanted her professional photographs to reflect her personality, and be high quality.
The result is just what she was looking for. Wearing a red and black leopard print jumpsuit, accented with a classic black leather jacket and boots, Jess came ready to play in Vegas. Even her hair – long and dyed bright green – matched the mood of the area. She wanted to showcase her style in the images, and, with the help of professional fashion photographer Analise, used the neon lights for which Vegas is so famous in many of her images. Her punk rocker style seems right at home amid the bright lights of Sin City.
Analise was also able to use the funky architecture of the area, combined with colorful storefronts, palm trees and a quintessential Las Vegas casino to shoot unique and vibrant images that Jess can really enjoy for a lifetime, and use for any future casting calls. Her images are unique, just like her.
Las Vegas has been used as backdrop for countless movies, high fashion photo shoots, and innumerable wedding photos. With its unique and unabashedly over the top style, it is easy to see why.
… Can Be Used in the Future!
Unlike most holiday photo sessions, Jess knew that she wanted images that could be used to showcase her exceptional personality – specific things that casting agents look at while going over photos of models for potential jobs. Instead of a typical, “normal” background, Jess used Las Vegas almost as a character in her shoot, setting her apart from apart from the more standard images we typically see.
Because these images are memorable, Jess will be able to use them for future casting calls, as they show her to be an individual, and not just another model. The photographs are of such good quality they could easily be submitted as magazine images as is.
No Selfie Stick Required!
