Headshot Session or GQ Model Shoot? - Vashon Headshot Photographer
Headshots are my jam, man! I really love doing headshots and senior photos because it really gives me a chance to get to know my clients, connect with them, and bring out natural expressions so they can make it big in the world. Tristan was a hoot to photograph because he was open for anything. I asked him to imagine certain situations and what his expression would be, and he brought it. BIG TIME! I had such a good time with him, walking around the trail, throwing different situations at him and watching how he'd react (which is darn right entertaining in itself), but then that translates into a genuine expression, and that, my friends, is what makes a beautiful portrait. Tristan, you're a rock star! I know you will be successful in all of your ventures and adventures!
DISCLAIMER: I don't do all my headshots this way. Not everyone is down for an hour of improv, but when they are - oh boy. We have fun!
At the moment, I am taking a year long course on studio, headshot and glamour photography and it is insane in the membrane! I am learning how to pose people to flatter their bodies and their features and it is blowing my mind! You would think some of it would be intuitive, but I don't think it is, at least not for me.
I will be doing some model calls in the future, looking for specific subjects, so keep an eye out for that, or sign up for my newsletter so you'll be the first to know!!
