This gentleman gave me a call one late afternoon. He started a new career in real estate and needed a headshot like.....yesterday to be added to his new business cards and marketing materials. I called him back, gave him my quote, and he met me at my home. I didn't have time to get to the studio so I set everything up in my living room. We had a lot of laughs, I took a lot of great shoots. I helped him to pick out the best one and we agreed on one you see below. As you can see it was a great shot. He was very happy with the results of the shoot, I got them to him that very night. His co-workers were pleased with what I did as well.
The one above and below I also liked, but not as much as the one he and I both liked the best, the one at the very top of the page. Not everyone can rock a full face front image, but his facial features allowed this.
I used used my Canon Mark 5D III and the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L lens and the Westcott X-Drop for the background. Three Dynalite strobes with a reflector bounce below him. Just a simple setup, the shoot lasted maybe 20 minutes.
My advice to everyone who is a business professional, do not use a cell phone to take your next headshot to represent yourself to your clients. If you're concerned with your image, come see me to have the look of your marketing brand done right the first time.
