Professional Headshots for the True Professional

Professional Headshots for the True Professional

Headshots for Nick West. A man of the people. Jazz enthusiast. BBQ lunch partaker. Headshot client.

When I do headshots in particular I keep a few rough guidelines the same each time, but I tailor the rest of the shoot to the client. I’m not a believer in “white backgrounds all the time” or other repetitive traits. Your work should evolve and grow as a photographer. You should demand it of yourself.

For this particular session we did high contrast black and white portraits. Very focused light and an 85mm lens. Intimate. Then we moved along to high above the night skyline for some off the cuff shots. These were done with a simple speedlite and 28mm lens to capture a nice depiction the busy city below.

Enjoy a few of my favorites from the photo session and be sure to comment below.

The Beauty Bar in downtown Somerville, NJ was home base for hair and makeup for Lily’s shoot for Cleri Models. Five individual looks were accomplished through Kelly and Elise’s cosmetology wizardry and I’m always impressed by the results.

The weather on this particular day was all over the place. We went from overcast skies to bright warm sunlight. It appeared to be different days completely as we changed looks. Worked in our favor for this particular shoot!

One of my favorite locations is a narrow alley next to The Beauty Bar. It’s just wide enough for a person to stand comfortably with their arms bracing them between the walls.
