Say hello to Jennifer F, this week's Headhot of the Week!. Jennifer's headshot was one of those that was easy to see why it was picked for HotW! as soon as I started reviewing her images. She got in front of the camera and just crushed it with this look! 2017 is shaping up to be an even better year than 2016 for killer headshots if I keep getting images like this.

cameraI recently read a post over at Fstoppers (www.fstoppers.com) discussing listing photographic gear one uses in addition to their other info on their social media and other web presence(s). The author was looking for opinions on this practice. This got me thinking and eventually, writing…

The 3 R’s, Results Results Results

I don’t post my equipment list on my client facing website and social media spaces and I have no desire to. If I’m sharing my photographic work and trying entice potential clients to contact me, I want them to see the results, not the process. 

There are cases where I do post this information for sharing the details with other photographers and friends. These are in the spirit of education and support, not trying to impress potential clients with brand names.

In most cases , I don’t believe my clients care what camera, lens, or other gear I use to create an image for them. They DO care that I know how to use that gear to produce the images they are looking for. The results, as they say, speak for themselves and clients who approach me saw my work and liked what they saw.

Another year has just flown by and I know we're all wondering where this new year will take us. You can rely on one thing though. Headshot of the Week! will continue on. This first HotW! of 2017 is Brad D. Bringing the perfect amount of smile to this professional/business headshot, Brad made this image an easy pick for Headshot of the Week. Notice how his smile is coming from his eyes in this shot? That's how you do it!BradD

As a counterpoint to the many things that tried their best to make us sad during 2016, I am sharing these images. These photos are outtakes from my headshot sessions from 2016. These shots are some of my favorite moments caught in camera while I worked with my subjects to get that "just right" amount of smile. This usually involves getting a healthy dose of laughter going and then catching that remaining fun energy as they come down from the laugh. What happens just before that is what you see below. Let's look back at 2016 and have a good laugh.

Just in time for one more Headshot of the Week! for 2016 come Maurick A. Just check out that smile! Any doubts about why I picked his photo?? Nope, me neither. Just looking at shot and you know that you want to hang out with this guy. He's got a great combination of friendliness and warmth with just a hint of mischief. Way to bring it for our last HotW! of 2016 Maurick.
