When I think of pageant photography I often think of those glamor shot booths in the mall with the crazy hair, makeup, and horrendous props and backgrounds. Well times have changed and most young women competing in pageants around the world are taking much more fashion and beauty style portraits of themselves. In this video Justin Grant shows us what it’s like shooting the images used by both the reigning Miss and Teen Miss Utah and Arizona. Watching this video really changed my perception of what “pageant photography” is and should look like! Be sure to check out Justin Grant’s portfolio which features some really amazing advertising, fitness, and beauty images.
Britt Boyse and Jessica Whitehead of Casting Crowns Productions would like to present the behind the scenes video from the official headshot shoot with Justin Grant for the 2011 Miss Arizona and Miss Utah winners. Enjoy!
