THE HEADSHOT INTENSIVE: The art behind the headshot workshop

headshot intensiveUp to this point in my career my daily focus has been figuring out how to communicate with the person standing 3 feet in front of my camera so that a part of their personality enters my frame.  Staring down the barrel of the lens when it's so close is daunting for many especially when it's my Hasselblad 120mm macro. 

When I'm shooting my goal is to not only give my client an amazing photograph, but to find something in them that they might not have realized was even there.  It could be finding an angle of their face that works perfectly or capturing an interesting expression that appeared for a nano second, these are truly the moments I cherish.  If they leave the session feeling a bit better about themselves and their appearance than they did prior to having ever stepped foot in my studio then I know I accomplished something.
