I am creating a portrait project around all the wonderful women who have started their own business in Victoria. Since I moved into my studio on Johnson Street in Autumn of 2017, I realized just how many female entrepreneurs had opened a store or started a business in downtown Victoria. I would like to take a black and white portrait of these women in business for a future exhibition celebrating women entrepreneurs. My goal is to show strong, independent and powerful female entrepreneurs while also showing their feminine side.
Are you a business owner? Would you like to be part of my portrait project? I would love to hear from you!
WHAT TO WEAR?
I would like to show your glamorous side! All portraits will be shot in black and white so don’t worry about the color but textures photograph really well, I love lace! Large earrings can be distracting but a necklace always look great. Most portraits will be waist up so don’t worry about shoes! Try to avoid a blouse with a collar - it can look very "bunchy" on most people.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
About 30 minutes. You should come with hair and make up already done, but if you want to arrange to have professional make up then I can make recommendations.
DO I GET TO SEE ALL THE IMAGES?
I will choose one image to be printed for the exhibition. You can arrange a time to view your images and select your favourite - that is my gift to you. Additional images will be available for purchase.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE A BRICK AND MORTAR STORE?
No. But you do have to be a female registered business owner in Victoria, BC. This project is open to for-profit or non-profit organizations. If you started it, I want to hear from you! I know there are many ladies involved in a MLM company, unfortunately I cannot focus on these businesses this time, unless you started the original business.
