This young man is getting out of the military and looking to join the civilian work force. So he called me for some business head shots. I always like photographing men because it's not the norm. Men usually don't care for the camera and the only reason why they get in front of it is because the wife, girlfriend, fiancee, mom, sister ... whomever female, wants a picture of them. So I love the challenge of photographing men alone. And for some reason, they're a lot of fun to photograph because most of them joke in between the shots laugh at themselves. I love it.
And this cat was no different. I enjoyed walking around Historic Downtown Hay Street with him and just laughing and chatting as we stopped at certain locations for a portrait or two. My favorite? The picture below.... there's something about those stairs that I love!
And of course, no blog post would be complete with a little back-lighting. This is why I love the lifestyle type shooting for business head shots I do. It's different and not so uptight. It allows the subject to relax and be themselves. I mean after all, they are selling themselves in these portraits ... why not help them do that?
