Meet Damien McGlade, photographer and a long time friend. Although he did scare the hell out of me when I first met him. But that’s another story.
This isn’t a headshot, or even a portrait. It’s actually a product shot. Well, kinda.
Corporate headshot photography needs to say more than “hello!”, because it’s also representative of the business. That can mean including the ambience of the setting, or putting the subject in context.
The technique demonstrated is “short lighting”, where an accent light is used on the far side of the subject’s face, which then has a slimming effect to their features. This wasn’t a portrait session, but a quick demonstration example, shot during a mentoring session.
This is the portrait of Wayne Myers I shot for the blog entry on the launch of his own career as a full time professional, as opposed to working full time for me.
Meet Allan Vincent, a photographer from the Chorley area, who needed a headshot for his various social media outlets, and whilst he was at the studio, photographing his gorgeous daughter, I nailed his feet to the black backdrop and took my chances 🙂
