I got into shooting headshots because, as a working actor, I became tired and frustrated at the process of having my own pictures taken. It felt like the photographers were more interested in taking the pictures THEY wanted (and getting me in-n-out) than finding out what I wanted out of the session. The whole experience would end up uncomfortable, costly and, ultimately, I was usually disappointed with the results. I began getting together with a friend of mine (who also was a photographer) and we began taking each other’s headshots. Because we were able to take our time and feel at ease with each other, the pictures we took would always seem to reflect the comfort we felt with each other. This was what I wanted to experience every time I had my shots done and what I decided I wanted to start doing for others.
