Over the many years of being a professional photographer, I have became well aware of the importance of conveying interesting and natural looking facial expressions while being photographed. During this time I have been honing this craft of coaching my subjects to produce both realistic and flattering facial expressions and images.
During our session, I will teach you to bring out the subtleties of the human face that attract us to certain people and images. Sometimes that requires the subject to intentionally manipulate certain facial features in combination of your natural look and smile.
One of the most important things is to share your intentions for the photo session. Let me know what kind of look you want.
Don’t be afraid to practice at home in front of a mirror. Practice poses and expressions… especially true for models looking to build a portfolio. You want to be loose and get a dynamic range of looks. So be playful and have fun.
Do not drink alcohol or take any drugs directly before or the night before your shoot. This will end up making you look tired.
Drink lots of water and be well rested.
Please arrive on time, ready for your first shot.
If you are looking for a general head shot which is not specific to any role, then bring your smile as well as your more serious looks. We will explore everything in between!
REMEMBER: Select and wear clothes that make you feel comfortable. Select something that makes you feel good. You may want to consider buying a new outfit or a few new shirts. New clothes always makes us feel great.
