Occasionally I get gigs where I can't show the work; private clients or commercial shoots where part of the contract is they have control over how the images are used. While I don't provide any less effort for the job, it stings a little when I can't share anything from the production. But that is how it goes sometimes, and I'm not complaining. The pay is good and I really love working for this particular client.
A few months ago I was hired by a company for a series of head shots on white. Nenna, pictured above, was an assistant to the project manager on the gig and I'd pass her in the hallway or see her in the room we were setup in and she had such a striking face and her hair was gorgeous. I kept hoping that I'd be able to photograph her at the end of production, and when I asked if i could grab a portrait of her, she happily said yes.
I can share these two images of Nenna, because they were not part of the hired/contracted job, and because I photographed her after the completion of the hired work. In this instance, I got full permission from the Project Manager when I asked if I could share these shots of Nenna.
She's absolutely gorgeous. Such beautiful features.
