An Artist Portfolio

MAKEUP BY NAZ

I love what I do and I'm open to learn. In 2010, I started my own production company and now produce my own shoots specializing in photoshoots in Ventura. From concept, to casting the models,finding the right photographer, scouting location, wardrobe selection and styling, as well as the hair and makeup, I do it all! I am also involved in post production, working hand in hand with the photographer to reach a collaborative point where we both feel we have achieved our desired results. I am a rarity in my industry as I am personable, responsible, dependable and flexible! I am a professional, but I am all about making it fun...

For over 20 years, I've concentrated on learning the art of beauty. In 2007, I began to perfect my work in photography makeup and have since worked with a multitude of master artists and photographers exclusively understanding the needs of a photographer not only during the shoot but in post production as well

The most significant years of my learning were the 7 years I spent as a makeup artist behind the counter in a busy retail environment. Also significant, have been studying with award winning makeup artist Ve Neil, as well as master artist Greogory Arlt, Marie Del Prete, and Paul Innis.

The business of beauty is as much about personal interaction, trust, and rapport as it is about picking out the right shade of makeup. My key to success has been to listen and show know-how without intimidating my client. I have a successful business as a makeup artist. My work has been published as well as I work for private clients, photographers and designers.

My passion is working on the set of a fashion shoot. And now I'd like nothing more than to take it to the next level and see my work in major magazines.
