I started the Deuce Sleeves Brand with my iPhone and no prior knowledge/experience with a Camera or editing software. Today I personally shoot all pictures in raw mode using professional grade Cannon equipment & lenses, and edit photos in Lightroom and Photoshop. The models used for Deuce Sleeves Social Media and Website are either professional models, or everyday people that I’ve met via my travels. We don’t pay models. Instead, we partner with like-minded individuals who believe in Mission of the Deuce Sleeves Brand.
I’ve always believed that the visual presentation of Deuce Sleeves product is just as important as the product itself. Careful consideration is always taken to the location of a photoshoot and the message I want to convey. When planning a photoshoot, the following variables come into play:
- What type of model is best for the product we are shooting?
- How does the location/background of the photoshoot impact the message I want to convey?
- Lighting – natural or artificial?
- Does the model have a personal story of overcoming adversity that strengthens the message I want to convey via the Deuce Sleeves Brand?
Whether you are an existing model, or someone who is up and coming, I encourage you to send us an email at: Talent@DeuceSleeves.com. If you meet our qualifications, you can keep the apparel you wear during the photoshoot, and I will email you the raw/edited photos for your portfolio. Please include sample photos (if you have them) with your email submission.
