Headshot of the Week this week is back on time and with good reason. I recently had the opportunity to shoot headshots for the IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysts) during their recent meeting at the Spark Center in Cool Springs. During the day I shot seventy headshots so I had plenty to choose from for this week's image. Of course wouldn't you know that one of my favorites from the day (there are several) was the very first subject I shot, Josh R. Josh was onsite working one of the vendor booths and as such he was able to get in early before the crowd started lining up. Not only did he do a great job as s test subject as I finished setting up but he simply crushed it with a great smile and engaging eyes. It was a great way to start the day of shooting. Thanks so much Josh!


Yes, this Headshot of the Week! is a bit late, and now it's next week. My apologies but I wanted to confirm with the subject that it was OK for me to use her image before I posted and I waited too late in the week to reach out :). With out further ado, Solvig G (pronounced sol vay) is this week's, or lats week's really, Headshot of the Week! I held out to get Solvig's shot in here instead of just using another because she has such a warm and genuine smile. It was worth making this post late in order to use her photo. Thanks Solvig!


Our first HotW! for October of 2016 is Diane R. Diane and I work in the same team here at HCA and after months of attempts, I finally managed to get her in front of my camera for an new headshot. I believe she was concerned she wouldn't photograph well, like most of us (including myself) but I had a feeling she would shine and the results speak for themselves. I only had a few minutes with Diane to get this shot but she stepped up and "owned it". Awesome job Diane!


Although Courtenay is not an unfamiliar face in my body of work, this is the first time she has been Headshot of the Week!. It's been a long time coming but she's here. Courtenay has been in front of my camera a lot over the past couple of years and I love it working with her because she has such a great time. If the subject is having fun how can you go wrong?!


This week's shot comes in a little late since we've been in Boston the past few days but we're back and got this shot done this morning for our friend Kathy who joined us on our trip. She was needing a updated headshot so we set up in the in house studio (aka our living room) and got to work. Best shot was the last one. We actually we already done when I said "Hang on, look back this way" and I grabbed a few more. Worked perfectly as she was convinced we were finished and the "pressure" was off. Perfect look!
