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!


Carmen B. is this week's Headshot of the Week! She really should have made HotW! long before now, especially since she and I have been together for over eight years at  this point. She really appreciates me not chasing her around with the camera though so when I do get a chance to shoot with her, I want to make it count. This is just one of several "keepers" we got shooting at Hound Dog Commons a couple of weeks ago and it was hard to choose just one, but this was the winner. Great job Carmen!

Headshot of the Week! this week is of one of my dearest and longest running (I'm not sayin "oldest") friends, Rita C. She and I have known each other for about 25 years now starting back when I began working at Wolf Camera. One of my favorite portfolio shots I have is of her from back in the 90's and it still appears on my Portraits page. Looking at her here it is hard to believe it has been such a long time since we first met :) This shot was one of many great looks she gave the camera during this session which made it difficult to choose. Always a great problem to have! :)
