Scott

February 16, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I have done a lot of head shots in the past for business websites, authors books and a few actors portfolios, but when I had a phone call from a photographer asking me if I could help with some new head shots for their website, this made me feel both delight and trepidation!  Delighted that a fellow photographer wanted to appoint me to do their portrait shots and trepidation because I would be photographing someone who is a highly awarded wedding photographer, (his work is pretty darn good itself ;) ) I can tell you I was nervous about doing it!

I found this session a little harder than usual, because having worked with Scott on a few occasions as a second shooter for him, I have got to know him well (still didn't calm the nerves about doing it though!) What was needed was to capture the essence of him for a montage and unlike a corporate shoot, knowing Scott on both a professional and personal level it was hard to separate the two and when I uploaded the images after the session, I sat there looking at them and realised that there was something was amiss, some of the pictures were too business like!  It was then I remembered a quote; "Its one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, its another thing to make a portrait of who they are" - Paul Caponigro...it was Scott we needed to capture and just that! So I called him back for a few more.

Working with both natural lighting from my lovely big windows in the studio and studio lighting but we finally got there!
