I’ve been working with a local business for a few years now. Every so often they contact me to photograph a new employee or someone who has yet to have a head shot photographed in the style we’ve been working in.
For this particular client, they really like a black background with a little visual embellishment; in this case a grid spot shining on the background to create a round halo of light behind the subject. I think it looks really fantastic in black & white.
Santa brought me some of the new “Star Wars: The Black Series” action figures for Christmas. These little guys are 6.75″, larger than the normal sized action figure, and thus have more detail and all round awesomeness. I couldn’t wait to take them to the studio and play with them.
More stamps came to the studio recently. This time they aren’t for leather, but for paper products.
I fear I’ve become addicted to making things with my name on them.
Took a trip down to Boston recently to see double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan performing at the Museum of Science Planetarium (which is an absolute must-see thing) and Boston had a beautiful fog covering it. It was so nice I simply had to take a photograph.
Darren came to me via a mutual friend. He’s into popular culture in a big way, and our mutual friend couldn’t understand how he and I haven’t met yet.
He contacted me because he was having an editorial published on CNN’s website and needed a new head shot to go with the article. I was more than happy to use this as a chance to finally meet him and produce a nice clean head shot while we were at it.
Darren’s already gifted me a very hilarious coffee table book about terrible head shot photography, and I’m looking forward to working with him again.
