“Headshots” sometimes aren’t “head” shots. Sound weird? Often what my clients want isn’t actually a headshot, but environmental portraits or action shots. I’ve photographed chefs, personal trainers, actors, entrepreneurs, authors, animal behaviorists and surgeons, to name a few. Still waiting for my first rodeo clown, though. If that’s you, come on down! Your shoot’s on me.
