My friend and fellow photog, Ronnie – Lifestyle portraits in Montrose

Lifestyle portraits in Montrose
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

A few years ago, Ronnie moved to Houston from Maryland. Not long after, we met in a local Facebook group of some sort, most likely one for photographers or small business owners. I don’t remember the exact details of how our conversation began, but we decided to meet for coffee and take a walk with our cameras to see what we stumbled upon. More than anything, I think we stumbled into a good friendship and business relationship.

Since meeting, we have attended a few photography workshops/education events together and helped each other out with various photography needs. When she recently asked if I’d like to trade headshots, I was, of course, up for the job.

I haven’t “cashed in” on my headshots yet, but for Ronnie’s, we decided to create those at a great location in Montrose which is a favorite of she and her clients. It was a bit rainy that day, so the indoor location worked out perfectly. It had a ton of windows, so the natural light was beautiful. And instead of a typical head-and-shoulders “headshot,” we went with more of a lifestyle approach to the portraits.

To learn more about Ronnie, check out the “Meet Ronnie” page on her website.

The Fashionable Side of Photography – 4 day educational test shoot

4 day educational test shoot
by Houston commercial photographer – Nicki Evans Photography

Each year, I take a week trip to Dallas to brush up on my photography skills and learn a few new things too. I’ve taken a variety of classes with topics ranging from lighting and posing to marketing and pricing. This year, I decided to try my hand at something a little different, while having a bit of fun too, so I took a fashion photography class.

Over the range of four days, a team of amazing models, hair and makeup artists and stylists came together to make these test shoots possible. I photographed more models in four days than I have done in all of my photography experiences thus far. I really enjoyed getting to experience the “fashionable side of photography” and work with these models. It’s amazing the magic you can create in camera when you have such incredible talent on the other side.
