Headshots you can eat

As a former corporate attorney myself, I loved how creative these Schwartz Perry & Heller attorneys got with their headshots for the holidays. Headshots:    Headshots you can eat (I’m told they tasted great too):

One headshot, multiple crops, different uses

Think through your headshot. To convey your work environment or industry, environmental photos work best. Website? Consider look & feel — what fits with the content? Sometimes a single shot can be multi-purposed with cropping […]

Portrait of an author in her element

I photographed a couple of headshots for this author, but the portraits have the most impact. We used the environment to express something more about her and her personality, and of course the books reverberate […]

“Candids” of business executives

Those candid shots you see in annual reports and marketing materials? 99.9% of the time they’re posed, and most are simply not believable. It’s a challenge, to be sure — but I have a few […]

Environmental Shots for Marketing

I also did headshots for this executive coaching firm on Wall Street, but spent the bulk of day’s shoot on photos for online and offline marketing.  Professional, upbeat, relaxed — clearly these people enjoy their […]

Fun combo of environmental work photographs and headshots of a NYC doctor.  Great to see people in their workplaces.

Actually, the client IS sometimes wrong

This financial services client kept insisting he’s not photogenic.  Given these environmental portraits for promotional and marketing collateral, I beg to differ.

Headshot Lessons from my Youngest Clients

Take it outside, please

Many corporate photo shoots are done on site at their offices or in my studio, and this makes a lot of sense.  I can control the lighting, get more consistent poses if there are multiple […]

Cut through clutter with your publicity shot

Publicity photos have more latitude than traditional headshots when it comes to how you present yourself. Especially for placement on websites and in marketing materials, publicity shots are often dynamic and staged to evoke a […]

When Science Marries Art

Talk about a power couple! It’s not every day that I have the honor of photographing Nobel prize winners.1  James E. Rothman was awarded the 2013 Nobel in Medicine or Physiology. I’d do more damage […]

Head(shot) & shoulders above the crowd

When you’re a musician, your headshot can be a little more creative (and the venues are slightly more entertaining than my studio). I had a good time shooting these artists: Pictured: Dave Wilson, lead singer […]

Consider the environment for your next headshot

I don’t mean you have to go hug trees or protest landfills (though I support you wholeheartedly if that IS your thing).  By “environment” I mean the immediate space around your body that shows up […]

Seeking Rodeo Clowns (or When a Headshot Isn’t a Head Shot)

“Headshots” sometimes aren’t even headshots, but environmental 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 […]
