Miller Morris Photography Portrait Session: Michael

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Michael was referred to me by ReFresh Talent Agency for a series of headshots for his modeling portfolio. Headshots usually conjure up the idea of the close-up of a face with that big smile. While you will find that shot in Michael’s images, when shooting for a portfolio, you get to have a little more fun and show a range of expressions. There is a diverse range of modeling gigs to be had here in San Diego and southern California, from print to commercial to fashion. Having a portfolio that shows your range can lead to all kinds of opportunities. For more tips, check out

But showing that range isn’t just for models. The next time you are thinking about having your portrait taken, give some thought to the range of expressions you’d like to try and talk it over with your photographer. Long gone are the days of your school pictures. Let your photographer guide you through your poses and expressions even if they don’t seem like the “right” way. You just might come away with the portrait of a lifetime!

Miller Morris Photography Portrait Session: Shaunte

I have such a great time shooting portraits. It’s fun getting to know someone and then doing a portrait of them. Shaunte was no exception. Originally from Chico, California, Shaunte has made his way down to San Diego to try his hand in the entertainment industry.

As you can tell from that smile, Shaunte has a great personality, but he needed a variety of photographs for his portfolio. So for half of the portrait session, we went to Presidio Park and did some outdoor, lifestyle-type shots. Then to change it up, we came into my studio and did the black and white photos for an edgier, moodier look.

Everyone join me in wishing Shaunte much success in his modeling and acting endeavors. He will be represented by ReFresh Talent Agency in Orange County.
