Studio and Outdoor Session with Madison Hooker

This is Maddy’s first big shoot with me. You may remember the “underwater” shots we took bathed in red light. That was just a warm up. We’re into it full swing right here! Started with some simple studio shots using both natural light and an Einstein with strip box/grid.

This shoot is heavy on the black and white because…well…I felt like it. As an artist “I felt like it.” is a more than respectable answer for artistic choices. Knowing what you’ve done the day before and pushing on with something you might not normally do is what keeps me excited about photography. Consistency in pleasing the client is just as important as keeping that spark white hot.

There are a lot of shots in this particular session. Kick back, relax, grab a Yoo-Hoo and once you’re done perusing share this blog with a friend. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising ever.

Thanks, folks!

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.
