I've had the privilege to work with actor Ryan Czerwonko a number of times and it's always a pleasure. Aside from being a super nice guy to work with, Ryan brings an amazing range to a shoot so it's always a lot of fun. For this latest session we shot a few quick head shots and focused more on a few editorial portrait looks. 

Choosing a Head Shot Photographer

 Jeff Walton specializes in head shots for actors and corporate professionals in the Atlanta area.

Selecting the best head shot photographer for your needs shouldn't be a quick process. Dig through head shot portfolios and look for consistency within the work. Then narrow down which photographer produces head shots that are in line with the looks you need.

To make this process easier I recently made a change to my head shot samples where I've separated the different styles that I shoot. The Modern (shown above), Corporate, Traditional, etc. When reviewing photographers' work, pay attention to expression and postures. Look at the details such as where the hair lays, the creases in the shirt, position of the collar, tension in the neck... that list goes on and on. All of those little details should NOT be random and they will make or break a good head shot. 

Lastly, look at wardrobe. Colors of shirts, patterns, neck lines, layers; talk to your photographer about what photographs well and what should be avoided so that you have everything you need when you show up for your head shot session.

XXV Beauty Product Photography

Shooting products on white is not a problem, but a request to match existing product photography on a black background... a challenge. I love the way the color pops on the black, the challenge is capturing the contours. Needless to say I enjoyed working with Jasmine, the owner of XXV Beauty on this project. We ended up doing this whole set on black and an alternate version on white for their Amazon store.

Needless to say that I'm very excited to have the opportunity to work with Bulgari, an international luxury jewelry brand based in Rome, Italy with roughly 300 stores located in only the most exclusive shopping areas around the world. My assignment was to capture "people" and the "Bulgari experience"...

When Dillan reached out to me with the idea of doing a fashion photography shoot at an airport my first thought was "how are we going to make this work?" It's not easy getting access to a fleet of privately owned planes. Needless to say, he came through and we ended up spending about four hours on site with two separate aircraft to work with, one Beechcraft and one LearJet.

Modeling for this shoot are Cait Lynch of Ursula Wiedmann Models and Dillan Moore of Directions USA. Birmingham based hair and makeup artist Emily Walton made the trip over to assist.

Max called me up needing updates for his agency board. He booked two hours in the studio to concentrate on commercial looks so we shot a lot of options from casual to sophisticated. Funny thing is, the coffee mug idea was a quick "here, try this" proposal during our shoot. A couple weeks later, Max sent a message saying that he was just booked to model a commercial job for a name brand coffee company.

Julia and Lindsay, both represented by Ursula Wiedmann Models, came out for a simple outdoor session. By "simple" I mean we shot mostly natural light with minimal, if any, retouching. We started out at the park and finished up with a walk around Buckhead for some street looks.

Commercial Head Shot Session with Actress Jess Ennis

Jess contacted me about needing some head shot updates for her agents. We decided to do a basic two hour head shot session in studio to give both her and her agents a variety of looks to consider. Four agents in four different regions chose a different shot. This is why I always recommend enough time to cover multiple looks during a session.

Actress Julia Denton contacted me about doing a multi-look session to update her image portfolio. Being an actor, she asked that we concentrate on a cinematic feel so we started out with some studio work then went outside for a few action looks. Hair and makeup was done on site by Grace Armas.

Andi Dorfman visited the studio recently to shoot promos for her new t-shirt line offered exclusively for Southward Apparel. The request from Southward was to photograph Andi modeling her tee showing a couple different look variations. She showed up with hair and makeup ready so we were wrapped up in about an hour.
