I love headshots. Taking away all the usual crutches of composition, background and many styles of lighting really highlights the relationship between the subject and photographer.
Everyone’s headshot session is a little different, actors are often immediately comfortable in front of the camera, and the time we spend together is in tapping into different emotional cues to show a range. For business professionals, it’s about comfort and encouragement, high level managers and bosses are often happy to jump right in, get it over and go back to whatever important meeting is waiting for them. Newer employees are often happy to wait around and get a shot they’re proud of. In every headshot session I think the ultimate flattery to me is when one of my subjects posts an image to their own social media: It’s not always easy to be proud of a clear photo of yourself with no background or other distractions, and I think doing so is a big achievement for both me and you.
So without any more talk, here are a few favourites from some of my recent headshot sessions.
