Sophie Brandt Cortius

Hey everyone!

I found Sophie on Model Mayhem and proposed a shoot in the city of Melbourne and she accepted.

Sophie's new to modelling, it's something she's wanted to do for a while now so instead of thinking about it she made a model mayhem account to get the ball rolling.

It's important to have a clear idea of what you want out of your model and to pre visualise your shoots or else you'll both have no idea what to do.

It's also important to have a good rapport with your model. Sophie had a european accent so I ask her where she was from, as it turns out she was Dutch, she then asked me about my background so I told her I was born in Santiago Chile, Sophie responds in Spanish and tells me that she went to university in Santiago! As of this moment we began to get on very well.

I also thought I'd throw in a portrait on a Dutch angle for the sake of Sophie's home land.
