Portrait photography opportunity

Note from Robin:
Hi all! IFLC student, Erin Contour, has found a photo-opportunity for anyone wanting to build their portfolio ... and trade 'time for services,' so to speak. If you are interested, Erin has listed her email address at the end of this post. Thank you ... Robin Deutschmann

I do the website for the Tangles Hair Studio, Encinitas (http://www.tangleshairstudio.com). They have an adorable new stylist who offers a variety of services, some new to the salon. This talented young lady needs some photographs of her work so I can put them up on the website... and while I've taken a handful of In Focus courses, portraiture is just not my forte and I don't own any external flashes etc. as yet. If you think you could help us out, it's a neat opportunity to just practice your skills... not for big pay, but for big appreciation and some small compensation. Holly (you can read about her on the 'staff' page) will trade a haircut (she is quite good, she's done my hair and I loved the cut) and the salon owner, Angela, will trade some products for this help.

Our current need - Holly will be doing formal up do styles on a group of young ladies for their prom on 2/6... this is the date we'd like to find someone who could be there and take pix... bring your equipment and any external lighting sources you need. You should definitely plan on needing to be there multiple hours that day, I do not yet have the appointment times... coming soon!

There may well be follow on opportunities as she gets into make-up, vintage hair etc. if you find that you enjoy this type of practice. We will also give you credit on the site for your images, a bit of notoriety never hurts. If you're interested, are free that day, and think you can get us some good images, please feel free to contact me directly at escontour@roadrunner.com for further information.
