Beauty & Modelling Portfolio

Beauty and modelling portfolio images can also be known as beauty headshots. What this means is that the images are retouched to magazine quality and look more like images for make-up companies rather than your everyday photos. This doesn’t mean that the images are just for models, portfolios or individuals wanting to submit their work, it is just a different type of photographic style.

Boudoir & Lingerie

Unclear what boudoir or lingerie photography is? Boudoir is a French term for a women’s bedroom or private space. It’s a form of photography which is often done in such a setting but can also take place in a studio or hotel setting. It focuses on photographing a female whether they are elegant and classy images or more sensual is purely up to you.

Boudoir and Lingerie photography is all about you! It is for all women, its focus in on show casing you as a woman, as a sensual being. Whether the photos are for you or someone special; this type of session focuses on photographing just you. At the end of this session you will feel confident and thrilled with the images that you have to take home.

Don’t be fooled by lingerie models in magazines, all women deserve images that showcase them in all their glory, even if the images are just for you and no one else.

Beach & Swimwear

During the warmer Melbourne months, Shaun Powell Photography and Retouching offers beach photography*. Done at some of Melbourne less popular yet still beautiful beaches, beach photography gives individuals the chance to showcase their swimwear or clothing with beautiful backdrops. Beach photography often takes place early morning or late evening during the golden hours giving the individuals skin an amazing glow.

Melbourne weather makes too hard to do certain types of beach images over the cooler months. Nobody wants beautiful images and hypothermia at the same time. Swimwear photography* can be done all year round with the use of pools, however, once again giving a different type of image background.

*Location shooting varies depending on the type of shoot.
