Wilmington based artist and photographer Daniel J Hadley has been providing NC with premium professional photography services for 16-years. His artistic reputation brings a hard edged New York, LA and Miami styled fashion photography into the local South Eastern Markets. He applies this photographic attitude towards all of his specialties including: Fashion, Boudoir, Glamour, Headshots, Modeling Portfolios, Portraits and Commercial Photography. Dan's professional approach to his photography is to visually capture each of his clients 'Wild at Heart'.
Boudoir photography, also known as burlesque photography, pin-up photography, sexy photography, lingerie photography, and fine art nude photography. This style of photography has a reputation of being scandalous, sultry, fun, sexy, alluring, and empowering. Subjects frequently receive a tremendous ego boost from the experience as they see themselves more beautiful and sexy than they knew was possible.
Daniel has literally photographed thousands of Boudoir Photography sessions regionally, nationally and internationally in his studio, premium hotels and resorts across the globe. He has conducted boudoir workshops, mentored and trained other photographers the art of Boudoir photography and is a recognized master at his craft.
Glamour photography is the art of capturing individuals as their most attractive self. Elements that contribute to this look are diverse but common denominator is SEXY!!! Subjects frequently have professional hair and make-up services, wear exotic and sexy clothing, jewelry and shoes. Note that there are many levels of SEXY and SEXY is always subjective, so variety presents itself in a myriad of clothing and styling options.
Beauty photography is focused on manipulating light around an individuals face to show it at its most attractive. Great attention and craftsmanship is spent capturing the beauty of the eyes. Hair styling, Make-Up and even jewelry are critical and clothing is minimized so as to focus on an individuals glamorous features.
Headshot photography is all about accurately representing individuals at their absolute BEST!!! Headshots are similar to Beauty Photography except styling is traditionally minimized so that the individuals look like their daily reflections in life. Also clothing selections come in to play to assist in visually reinforcing the individuals perceived profession, personality, and charisma.
Headshots can be done in the studio in a complementary location. Indoor studio sessions allow the photographer to craft the light around the subject and minimize the background, keeping the complete focus on the individuals. Outdoor or location headshots, frequently called environmental headshots, put the subject in a complementary setting which can reinforce individuals projected professions and personality.
Modeling Photography is a commercial styled photography session where the subject is a catalyst for selling a product or a lifestyle. Models must have a modeling portfolio in order for agencies to accurately represent them and make money for both parties. Portfolio sessions consist of multiple outfits in multiple outdoor and indoor locations to showcase the capabilities, features and talent of each model.
All models have to start somewhere, and it is frequently with a modeling portfolio session. Though a modeling portfolio is not necessarily required to land a reputable agency, it definitely gives models their best chance. Daniel has provided local models with strong enough portfolios to get them signed with some of the TOP MODELING AGENCIES IN THE WORLD.
