Since last July when I returned from working as a supervisor at the World Series of Poker, I have been working towards becoming a ‘preferred’ photographer for the Northwest’s top modeling agencies. In the last three months I have finally had the opportunity to network with the top three NW agencies: SMG (Seattle Models Guild/cleints Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc), Sports Unlimited (client list: Nike, Adidas USA, REI, etc.) and Heffner Management in Seattle. Here’s a sample shoot with SMG model, Mike Rose, shot around downtown Seattle and Lake Union.

Mike Rose test shoot/SMG Models Summer \'08

Although Mike was 45min late to his appointment, we made it work and did a little shopping downtown at J.Crew and Urban Outfitters before jumping into his session. Somehow we were able to nail six different outfits in about two hours, and hopefully we’ll get to do some athletic stuff later this week (Mike played baseball for about 10 years). We’ll hope that his agency loves the images and wants to keep me in their loop! -JM
