Why do I need a new Head Shot?

Most people do not enjoy being photographed.  I understand that, as I have felt what it feels like to be photographed and honestly, I did not like it either earlier in my life as a pianist.  This is probably why I put myself “behind” the camera instead!  But, it is very important to have a good photograph of yourself, especially if you are looking for a new job, own a business or have a web presence, plus countless other reasons.  So, every couple of years I suggest that you update your head shot or profile image since styles change, you change and new content is always a good choice.   Head shots in the studio are best as a good photographer can create lighting that highlights your best features.    Choose an experienced photographer who will help you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. It should be a fun experience. So, here is an example of a head shot I did recently.  Meet Charles Eaton, a long time Mansfield resident who is in his senior year at UConn’s Fine Arts Dept..  He is a very talented baritone and will be performing the role of Papageno in Mozart’s, “The […]

November Portraits in the Golden Light.

I love the light in November.  There is a soft golden light that stretches into the late afternoon at this time of year.  I had the pleasure of photographing Haley in this light recently.  She is a young lady that I have known for years as her family also lives here in Mansfield CT.  We captured some wonderful head shots of Haley in the local fields and other areas around our town.  She currently is a student at the University of Connecticut.  Here are some of our favorites from our session.

Jazz is alive and well in Connecticut!

I had the honor of photographing Mike Casey, Saxophonist from Storrs, CT,  currently in the Jazz Studies program at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz in Hartford at the University of Hartford.  If you frequent Hartford’s Black Eyed Sally’s  you may  have heard this talented musician!   Oh, and if you are around Hartford on August 13th, his band is playing at Bushnell Park, Monday Night Jazz in Hartford at 6 pm.  Make sure you check out this award winning young jazz talent! We had a terrific day to shoot some cool images, in the studio and around town.  Here are some favorites!

The Necessary Headshot

Recently I photographed Kristin Schwab,  Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.   My approach to headshots is to photograph each individual in an authentic way while highlighting their best features.  The eyes are especially important in order to connect them to their viewers as you see below.  That is why I find this image compelling –  you can see who she is! In this visual world we live in, the headshot has become very important.  Are you putting your best face forward?  If you would like to, give me a call today!
