Hi all! Just wanted to share a quick post about a head shot session I just shot this week. I’ve been traveling most of the summer and taking some time off from working, but am trying to sneak in a few sessions on my two weeks home. Here are some samples from a session I just had this week with a lovely woman who needed some up to date, casual head shots to use online. We met up for a sunset session and got some fantastic shots:-) Here are a few of my favorites:
Who says head shots have to be boring?! I can tell you now that I definitely don’t believe that to be true….so here is my take on the fresh, modern looking head shots that we all should have going forward… No more stuffy, tie dyed looking grey backdrop with an unflattering, uncomfortable pose. No thank you….not anymore. Here is the recipe for what I think head shots should be all about in 2014:
1) A portrait client who is willing to step outside of the box and show their personality on camera.
2) A photographer skilled in taking crisp, focused photos while being able to talk you through a variety of flattering poses…oh and one that can make you laugh when you are feeling awkward in front of the camera….this is actually much more important than you might think!
3) An interesting, natural backdrop mixed with ideal lighting in a fresh new setting….preferably at sunset!
Mix those together and you get these….perfect for work, Linkin, Facebook, Twitter, a website, dating sites, and the list goes on and on. If you don’t have a great shot of yourself like these, then call me ASAP and let’s get that corrected. Here are a few of my favorites from my recent head shot session:
