About Me

Hi there! My name is Carissa Goodwin, and I am a budding photographer looking to expand her portfolio.
I like to create portraits which show off something unique about the subject and create an emotional connection to the setting. I'm currently in the process of building my portfolio for commercial work and have lots of concepts I'd like to shoot when I find the right modeling talent. I'd like to build a portfolio of budior, glamour, fitness, and erotic photography. I will do TFP shoots around these areas and can also provide studio head shots and portfolio body shots for models.

I shoot a lot with my husband, who is also a photographer, and we use the brand Helios Portraits. We shoot mostly commissioned work by non-models who want something special for their significant other or a portrait to showcase their uniqueness. We do boudoir, beauty, glamour, maternity, etc. as well as portfolio shoots for hair/makeup artists, aspiring models, and stylists.

My husband and I share a home studio where we do most of our shoots. For models we haven't worked with before I prefer to meet in person in a public location first to discuss the concept for the shoot, the particulars of the TFP deal or payment, and our expectations for the shoot. I encourage models to bring an escort if it makes you feel more comfortable, but I have a limit of one escort only since my studio is fairly small and does not have room for a lot of bystanders. If you choose to bring an escort please bring someone you are comfortable working in front of as sometimes boyfriends and parents can be distracting. For any model shoot I will only work with models who are over 18 years old and I will require proof the first time we work together, before you sign the modeling release and any other contracts which are needed for the shoot.

Models doing TFP shoots:

Please let me know ahead of time exactly what you are looking for in your portfolio images. I would like to make sure that I provide you with what you need and that it is a good fit with whatever my goals for the shoot are up front. I will generally provide 1-3 retouched images per look for most shoots and prefer to send them via email. If you are interested in prints for a print portfolio I will need to know that up front since it will require extra work and expense for me to provide prints
