A large portion of our work is Portrait Sessions (Seniors, Families, Dance...). And a natural extension of that type work - that maybe doesn't typically get as much exposure for us - is Professional Headshots. These sessions, along with the Fine Art Portraiture Sessions, are the only ones that we typically shoot in a Studio setting. Part of the reason is because we are usually looking for a more refined end image - and being in a Studio setting helps us more easily accomplish this goal. But the basics of our Portraiture photography still apply. We are still working to get at the core of who this person is so that the final images convey this. The final images are as much a glimpse into who the subject is as are any of our other Portraiture work. So much so, that we actually believe that the Headshot work helps to inform and improve our other genres of Portraiture and vice versa. We learn things doing Senior Sessions that help us in Headshot sittings just as we learn things doing Headshots that help us with Family Portraits. It is part of why we embrace working in several different photography segments. Each makes us a better photographer for each of the other specialties.
Our latest Headshot client is Kamal Ariss of Woodway Enterprises. Kamal is working on a new website for his consulting and construction management services company and needed some updated Headshots. We were more than happy to jump in to help, having just been through the whole process of setting up our new website ourselves. He booked a Headshot session with us and over the course of about 30 - 40 minutes we were able to capture a range of differing looks. And judging by Kamal's remark as he was leaving that he didn't think he would actually have fun - he actually might have enjoyed the process as well.
