I love helping people create new head shots because I never know who I’m going to get to work with.
Carla contacted me after being recommended by a prior client (Thank you, Kate!). She was going to toss her hat into the political ring and run for Senate, and she needed a new head shot.
Carla was an absolute joy to work with. She was so friendly and she had great humor. She grew up in Africa and she wanted to wear a few things that hark back to her home.
I love her smile and her adorable pixie hair cut and she had she was just so warm and friendly and a joy to be around. I really liked photographing her and working with her.
I also get a kick when I see an image I created being used for things like billboards:
I had a very bad experience a few years ago with an image I took of someone and that head shot was taken by someone else and used politically in an attack print advertisement without my permission or knowledge. It’s taken a few years to get comfortable enough when someone approaches me asking about creating an image that will specifically be used for a political reason. Carla was so energized that she helped me feel comfortable making an image that was going to be used for that purpose.
I would love to photograph her again.
I’m a sucker for using a “beauty dish” and I just wanted to share how awesome a more recent piece of gear I purchased is and how it solved a small problem I had when it came to transporting and location gigs. The Westcott Rapid Box Collapsible Beauty Dish. It’s a mouthful to say, but I’m so in love with it.
Except the price. I hate the price. Read more after the cut:Read More
Melissa is married to one of my oldest friends since middle school. A few times a year my wife and I go up to a camp they have near the Canadian border and we spend three or four days just hanging out, laughing, eating and keeping the friendships strong. Years ago I photographed Melissa and Mike during one of our trips up North.
Melissa is the HR manager for Coca-Cola of Northern New England, and while she was here, we made a few images that shared her enjoyment of the product she represents:
Mark came to me by way of his wife, Julie, whom I did an extensive session with for her latest album "Rising - a Modern Cantata for the World to Come" (which I'll be blogging about soon). Mark needed some new head shots that would be used for his companies website.
Julie came along for the session, and before they left, I made sure we photographed the two of them together.
This is Jake. He contacted me looking for a clean head shot that he could use for a few different purposes; social media, work, and for print. He was going to be speaking to some groups and wanted something nice that they could use for print announcement materials.
Ryan also said some magic words during our session:
"When I was looking for head shots online, I came to your website. You were more than I had originally budgeted for, but when I saw your work, I knew it was worth it."
I dream for clients like that. Thanks, Ryan.
