Lauren!

Lauren!

Lauren had wanted to work with me for many years but it was never the right time until recently when she needed an updated headshot for her business and LinkedIn pages.  But as you can see from the image above,  this session became much more than a headshot session.

COSPLAY SAVES THE WORLD!

COSPLAY SAVES THE WORLD!

I've read and collected comic books my entire life.  I pretty much learned to read when I was a tiny person by trying to figure out words in the balloons on comic pages.  There is a special place in my heart for characters like Green Lantern and Green Arrow and Airwave and Iron Man and many, many, many more.  So many.

When the Hippo phoned me up asking if I would photograph some local cosplayers for a cover story I practically jumped through the phone with an excited YES!  The paper scheduled four cosplayers to come by the studio one evening so we could make some images that would be featured on the cover as well as serve as the main story for that issue.

Josh & Owen

Owen & Josh

Josh and Owen are brothers.  They are into anime and games and the same kinds of stuff that I love.  They both wanted some headshots to use as they both approach graduating from high school.  Josh (the older brother) wants to get into anime voice acting.  How cool is that?

They both came up with their mom Amy from Massachusetts and we spent the morning making headshots and talking about all the pop-culture stuff I have hanging on the walls here at the studio.  Before they left we got a shot of the two of them together (above)

Owen

Both of these guys were great.  We hung a bit to help them relax, but they both photographed fantastically, and I know they were both happy.  Mom even emailed me towards the end of the year to let me know Owen was already saving up for another session down the road.

I can make you look just as good.  I love making clean, clear, crisp headshots.  Consider hiring me if you happen to read this and are thinking about it.  At least come visit me at the studio so we can chat a bit.  That's free :)

I LOVE the 1978 movie Alien.  The atmosphere, the design, the cast, the ambience, the pacing - everything is just darn perfect.  Toy company NECA has been making figures based on the movie Alien and it's franchise, and I've been picking some up, making some dioramas here at the studio and making some more "cinematic" photographs using the toys.  I wanted to share a little about how I'm making them and share some of them here on the blog.
