I’m not a professional model, so I was pretty nervous and I didn’t know what kind of faces to make or poses to do. However, working with Shane I became less nervous little by little. With the sound of the shutter and the glimpse of light in the viewfinder, I felt just like he was peeking into my world. I think its obvious if you look at the photos he takes that he can find the feminine beauty that each woman has. All the poses felt natural, and Shane is talented in creating space that is free from anxiety and doubt.
I’ve shot with him a few times now, and I’ve learned from him that a professional is a person who gives a joyful experience. He’s always light-hearted and funny while working, giving direction and guidance when needed and his attitude encourages me to believe in my personal charm and makes me feel confident in myself.
