Being a Chicago headshot photographer, I see quite the variety. Being located in downtown Naperville, I get plenty of corporate headshots of all sorts, or branding pictures. But I also get actor and modeling headshot requests. This first guy is a local actor looking to expand his horizons. As we worked together, I asked what type of roles he typically gets – and he tends to be “the bad boy” look, which I can totally see. So we played up to that personality, even though he was super nice in person. With actors and models, I make sure not to over edit, as I know casting directors need to know exactly what they are getting.
Horizontal headshots are definitely the hot thing these days. I, also, love them. Definitely makes you stand out from the rest.
And doing a mixture of in studio and natural light provides for some great variety.
Another type of “headshot” session I’ve done is for fitness or bodybuilders. This Chicago police officer is my second CPD body builder to come through my doors. He was getting ready for his first body building competition and wanted to get pictures of himself at the peak of fitness. He looked great, and we had a fun time creating these looks. I mean, come on. What fun is this?!
When photographing for fitness, it is all about the muscles. All about the body, so lighting is key to showcasing the hard work they’ve done. This one looks like something out of a romance book cover, don’t you think? I love it!
And just one more from this short session.
