San Jose Professional Head Shot | San Jose Head Shot Photographer

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.

San Jose Beauty & Fashion Photographer | Post From My New Cool WordPress App

I love to be outdoor and travel quite a bit. I usually take thousands of pics using my iPhone. I found a WordPress App that gives me great flexibility to blog away from my computer.

My first mobile blog post…this is so cool!!! Popped in to see my girlfriend Malai at her new salon location this morning. She’s an esthetician and can tell you how to get beautiful skin just like hers.

Studio M 6485 Camden Ave, San Jose, CA 95120 |  (510)861-7503

 

Image I took of her in the studio a while back.

Congratulations Malai!!!

Lindsay Adler / Lou Freeman SF Workshop – San Jose Fashion Photographer

I recently took a workshop a from well known commercial and fashion photographers Lindsay Adler & Lou Freeman in San Francisco. Each year I pick a couple of workshops to attend and what drew me to this workshop was their work! Lucky enough for me it was only in San Francisco so I didn’t have to travel very far. I am fortunate enough to have several talented photography friends that we end up meeting somewhere and teach each other or brush up on skills. Next month I will be traveling to Philly to meet up with Kylene Cleaver of Leave It to Me Photography as well as a handful of other photography friends. We will be working on boudoir, high school seniors using OCF, (off camera flash), engagements, light room software and family sessions just to name a few. It’s exciting to travel to areas I’ve never been and it’s great to watch people work and learn about what sparks their creativity.

Ok, back to the workshop. Lindsay’s and Lou’s workshop was a great studio lighting workshop. Lindsay’s approach to lighting is easier to remember while Lou’s set up is quite technical and she has been known to use 16+ lights in her set up! What ever approach they take they definitely create beautiful images. Take a look at their websites if you get the chance.

Below are a few images I took while attending the workshop. Although I can’t take credit for setting up the studio lighting for these images, I did create and edit them myself in photoshop.
This is model Arielle. More images coming soon, enjoy!
