I got an inquiry to photograph a portrait for Alliance Bernstein. “We have an established style that we’re trying to replicate, specifically a full-body portrait, with examples below.”
I love challenges like this. I get these a few times each year and it makes sense. Why send the client to New York or Singapore or where ever when I can photograph them in my studio in Westport?.
Joan and I and the makeup artist Nancy Landauer were having so much fun that Joan decided she wanted headshots for her profile. So here we go.
I use my Godox 200pro inside now. It replaced my speedotron set up because of the ease of setting them up. My main light is a godox octobox. The light is just perfect.
I really think the key to taking nice portraits is enjoying the person you are photographing and engaging them by listening to stories that we tell each other. A sense of trust is established and the rest falls into place really nicely. For your portrait appointment with me, just call 203-856-5075 and we can have some fun and take some great images.
