I had the most fun photographing Steve Teipe for an image to use on his new CD. He is a drummer, producer and a composer!!! His style is rock, pop, r&b, funk, neo soul, alternative, indie and beyond. To check out more on Steve please go to his website: http://teipesteve.wixsite.com/drummer
The type of head shots I do are not the traditional images, in the studio in front of a backdrop. I prefer outdoors for the beauty of natural light. What makes a successful head shot is the consultation. I discover what the client is all about and their needs for their images. I craft the shoot around that knowledge. I am featuring four different clients in this blog and each session was unique and not the same.
Belen is an Immigration Lawyer that needed a head shot for her web site and some images for advertising. I met with Belen at her office in Fullerton. She picked this office as they’re in an historical building that used to be a hotel and she loved the history & beauty of it. After talking with Belen and walking with her around the grounds of the building, it was a perfect fit to do the shoot there. It reflected her personality and showed her place of business. She used the above image for her website and another image below for advertising.Desi is an actress that does indie films and theater. She needed some updated head shots. For Desi’s Consultation, we met at her home. We talked about her life, movies, traveling and what she loves. Our conversation got me thinking about the Walt Disney Concert Hall with all its stainless curves and I just knew it would be ideal for Desi because of the look and the building being associated with the arts. After seeing the images, she felt good that they represented who she is as a person and actress. Adriana is an entrepreneur that is starting a new business and just recently cut all her hair off. She needed photos for her new website and social network. Her business is going to be very hip and she wanted to convey a modern look.
My second time to photograph Pauline. I did some family portraits of her and photographed her son for his high school senior portraits. When Pauline got accepted in to a MBA program at Wharton and needed a professional head shot, she called me. We did some professional images and more casual images for Facebook.I had such a great time working with each one of these beautiful ladies creating some strong images for them.
