Beauty Photography

For thirty nine years Jean Sweet has navigated her career as a hair and makeup artist, adding skills and experiences along the journey. She began as a hairstylist and salon owner after finishing college (BS in Education, History ) in 1974. In 1986, Jean became a freelance hair and makeup artist for fashion print – commercial and editorial. For seven years she worked in Chicago, Miami, Madrid, Spain and New York. Her experiences with fashion shoots gave her the desire to become a photographer. In the early nineties, Jean changed career paths and became a wearable artist, with a studio at home, to spend more time with her husband, Jack.

In 2000, Jean and Jack moved to Chicago where she worked for a fashion designer Patricia Rhodes as the director of sales and marketing for three years. In 2004, Jean started curvCollaborative LLC, her freelance/consulting business, servicing the professional beauty salon business. In 2007, Jean started to purchase photography equipment to satisfy client needs for good beauty photography with a special emphasis on editorial and commercial hair styling images. It is this rich background that gives Jean the ability to produce quality “beauty” photography.

Lifestyle / Environmental Portraits

Location Photography by Jean Sweet
Web sites require images to be effective. In support of web implementation for clients, Jean offers location photography : team portraits, interior work spaces and lifestyle images. Jean believes that an effective method for web site planning and implementation is best with client collaboration. For many web projects, Jean spends a period of days at the client’s business building the site and taking photographs so that the client can give feedback during the process. This way, Jean can guarantee that the web site is an accurate representation of the business “brand” and assure the client is happy with the final web design and content.
