I was recently given the opportunity to shoot some headshots for Michael to be used for LinkedIn and other social media. Whenever doing headshots I like to make sure there's plenty of conversation both before and during the session to make sure the client is comfortable.
A company that I've worked with before, Mastiff LLC, called on me again for photos of a new employee, Bryan. He interned with them before and now he's been hired on as a full-time employee.
We went to nearby City Hall Park to grab some photos while the weather was still warm. Later, we joined the others for some group images near the office. Love the repeat business and look forward to working with this group again soon.
Ralph reached out to me through Facebook and asked if I could help him put together a set of images that would look different than other classmates with a city setting. I've recently become more familiar with SOHO and opted for that area to shoot in. As it turns out, it fits well with Ralph's other interest which is fashion. He has a blog that he keeps on the subject.
We started with a colorful setting in front of a door and wall that has graffiti and some kind of paper mâché.
To add to the NYC feel, I had him head down the subway stairs and then stop for a break in the Vive la crepe for something to drink.
We finished with a stroll down the cobble stone street and then to some more formal shots.
Thanks Ralph for letting me show you around SOHO. We definitely captured the urban vibe of NYC.
I worked with Prerak for about 9 months and he was one of those few (for me, anyway) that I really connected with. He's a great designer and we got to know each other through a mutual interest in gadgets, great design, and photography.
Prerak has helped me with a couple projects now that were beyond my Photoshop knowledge and I look forward to future collaboration.
A few days before his last day, I had my camera in the office and we went out for about 30 minutes to grab some shots for him personally and for his website. We went out to a place in midtown that I've shot at before and here are some of my favorites...
