Before & After


Let me help you change the way you see yourself

All before portraits are captured prior to hair and make-up application. Jason tries his best to find a flat natural light source at the location and purposely gives almost no direction when capturing your “before” portrait. Basically at this stage Jason is just trying to capture a snapshot of you. He doesn’t try to take an intentionally bad photo of you at this point, and he won’t direct you towards greatness at this stage either.

All final images are lit, directed and photographed by Jason Guy after your makeover to match the standard of the imagery you’ll see represented in his portfolio. After capture, your portraits are then meticulously hand retouched in photoshop to give the polished look you can expect when you book your photo shoot with Jason.
