I said Head Shot, not Dread Shot!
Welcome to my blog!
While having my first professional head shots taken in Melbourne in 2014, I had a light bulb moment- I was going to become a photographer. It took me a few years to pick up a camera and get shooting, but I made it, and I'm not going anywhere!
What I love most about being a photographer is connecting with people, sharing old stories and creating new ones. For me, the process is collaborative and So. Much. Fun!
This is one of my favourite outtakes from our session. Her positive energy was and is contagious! Bonnie and I met through the Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia. It’s a wonderful place to learn technique as an actor, and it’s where I have made some of my firmest friendships. #bffl
Bonnie came to me at the start of the year in need of some new head shots. #newyearnewme
I'd like to acknowledge that having your picture taken can be scary. It can be daunting and nerve racking and many people avoid it for these reasons. I do my best to strip all of that away and make it a fun, social and rewarding experience.
Bonnie enjoyed the lightheartedness of the shoot, and when I asked her for feedback, she said, ‘Looking back on my photos, I see a story through the expression due to the way [you were] able to evoke emotion.’
Showing up prepared, rested and hydrated is the key to a good head shot session. Heck showing up is the hardest bloody part. When Bonnie arrived, she was ready to have a good time and we ended up laughing our way through the entire shoot. #lol
Here are a couple of my favourites from our session!
