2009 Ironman World Championship | The Traveling Photographer

The Traveling Photographer – Photography has been a wonderful experience for me. It gives me the chance to photograph in places I might not otherwise travel to. I am writing this because this came up in my feed today on FaceBook. 7 years ago I applied for a media pass for the Ironman World Championship in Kona. It was quite an experience! I had behind the scenes access, interviewed a few athletes and made some new friends along the way.

This amazing competition brings together world class athletes from all over the world. I tried my hand at a tri about 8 years ago and struggled with the swimming part. I ended up injuring my knee and didn’t compete at the Wild Flower Tri (the shortest competition) nor my first marathon, (Silicon Valley Marathon 2009). In hindsight, it might have been a good thing. I was fearful of the swimming part and still am! Sink or swim? I think I would have sunk. 😉

Good luck to all athletes as they compete on Oct 14 at the 2017 2017 Ironman World Championship!!!

San Jose Professional Head Shot


I remember the first day I took a Professional Head Shots workshop up in Palo Alto and I remember the instructor talking way over my head about the different kinds of studio lights, the lighting, backgrounds, clothing choices (this I understood) and positioning clients.
As time went by I reviewed my notes and kept practicing and got better and better. There are so many possibilites to lighting professional head shots and the look the client or I want to achieve that communication is key to getting an understanding whet the definition of what a professional head shot can be. There’s the Business Casual Head Shot, Executive Head Shot, Actor Head Shot, Friendly Head Shot, Comedic Head Shot and so many other! When clients book with me I ask many questions as to what they are looking for and where the image will be used and of course their profession is a huge part in how they will look in their professional head shot.

When you are ready for a head shot give us a call and we will be glad to help you achieve your ideal Professional Head Shot.
