Over the years I've found that guys just want to look cool in their headshots. They want to go into a casting or audition and feel proud to hand over their headshot. During each shoot I take the time to bring out a bit of the guys personality. A bit of what makes them unique. And a way to help them stand out in an ever growing market. Each client has a look of what I call cool confidence.
One of the ways I keep things fresh is with new and old techniques. This is a combination of both. I wanted the look of a tintype portrait while using the new digital photo and printing methods. These are also shot with mirrorless cameras. Either the Sony A7s or the Fujifilm XT1. And then a little adjustment in Lightroom. I'm then having these printed by Bay Photo on 12x12 sheets of aluminum. An ongoing project that puts focus on the person with no retouching and trying to communicate a bit of each individuals attitude.
