Since I started going out with an actress (now my wife and mother to my crazy one year old) I was asked to take headshots for both her and her friends. Although at first I thought it was a lesser form of photography (I was in my early twenties and was currently assisting on major ad campaigns and celeb shoots) I soon came to love taking headshots. Its photography without all the usual time constraints, reduced budgets, and endless emails and phone calls. It’s relaxed portraiture. I really enjoy spending a few hours with the person, together getting a true representation of them.
I’ll tell you how I take them on another post at a later date.
I am currently building a studio that is specifically designed for headshots and portraiture. It is being designed by Wilf Meynell @ Studio Bark, I can't wait.
