Rainbow warrior

So Friday, it was awesome to have my super colourful friend into the studio for a long overdue catch up and creative session. With Kristen behind the styling and body paint wheel, I set up the lighting to create some isolation giving the pictures room to breathe some fresh air and give that stunning dash of colour a subtle glow.  Using a slight take on the evanescence lighting style, cranking up the volume, the flash heads boomed with each shot, filling the studio with more white light than the pearly gates!  I love to shoot creative headshots for actors, it puts me in a place where my juices can flow and fills my sou!  More shoots like these please, bring me your wildest dreams and I’ll make them into life.

With your heart full of colour you will always be a Rainbow warrior

Forte, in concert at The Singing Gallery, McLaren Vale

So, moving pictures… aka Movies, Film or Video.

I dont shoot heaps of them, stills are my thing, but I do enjoy shooting them. I recently hooked up with local Adelaide singer songwriter, Forte, for a commission to shoot and produce some work for a short moving picture to promote his new Album, “Conduit” which launches on Friday 13th November at The Church of the Trinity Goodwood road, Adelaide

Go support a local artist and help build a bright future.

The footage for the promo was recorded at the lovely “Singing Gallery” in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The subdued and 100% beautiful lighting of the venue set the tone for a great gig, candle lights all around.

Check out some of the photographs made on the night.

As part of the promo campaign with Forte, we also photographed some amazing publicity work and at the top of the bill, the Album artwork for “Conduit” We had an amazing day shooting, covering the whole of Adelaide. We started by shooting the amazing vista looking out at Gulls rock on the corner of Maslins beach and Port Willunga beach. Then with the kind permission of the owners of the Fleurieu Pantry in Port Noarlunga and a little furniture re-arranging, we made some awesome location images that more than suited our theme (and had some great coffee and Chai tea.) after a few studio shots in my port Noarlunga studio we then headed to Bowden and Adelaide CBD to make some key images for the promo, shooting among the painted street art and graffiti!
What an amazing photoshoot!

Take a look at the finished results as you’ll find them being used by Forte right now, I think you will agree, looks pretty amazing and captures this larger than life local artist perfectly.

Personal Branding Headshots

Why a professional headshot?

A carefully chosen personal profile image is a key part of publicly representing yourself, your brand and your business. As humans we are visual, the first thing someone will see is your image, it’s your chance to make a great first impression. You owe it to yourself and your career or business, you work hard on everything else right?  Like all first impressions, your headshot should instantly give a feel for who you are and what you represent, its a little bit like a handshake.  It needs to look and feel like you, genuine, and more relaxed headshots are the way forward. 

Don’t take yourself too seriously. Relax and show your personality.

Your business and personal brand promotion is not the place for a selfie or a party candid,  if you want to be perceived as professional, you should look professional, no matter how great you think you look, any headshot that has other people’s body parts cropped out around your head will bring you down.  Yes, selfie’s are fun.. and fine for memories and friends, but a quality headshot really should be used in your personal branding.

Lighting is important.  If you use natural light, never shoot at midday…its a strong source and creates harsh shadows. If you’re indoors, window light can be amazing, try a combination of natural and artificial light, it often works very well.

Try losing the suit and wear something that promotes what you do and your style.

Framing plays a big part in the image, make sure horizons are straight, move the clutter and anything in the background, distractions like this can be overwhelming and take focus away from you.  Keep it clean and simple.

Work with a few angles, we do have good and bad sides and angles,once you have taken a few look through and make sure that you have chosen the best angle.

Clothing is very important and depending on what you do will make a big impact on results!  Wearing anything with words, may just confuse the image and again take that focus from you.  You might want to steer clear of complicated patterns, stay with solid block colour or subtle patterns. 

Regular updates are important, once every 8 months to a year is a good rule of thumb. Any changes in your personal branding that you make or a career change may also create a need for an update too.

A professional photographer with an eye for detail and quality, both in studio or on location will provide a professional photo session and high quality edited images.  For anyone taking his or her career seriously or that may be self-employed, this is a very small financial investment to be able to have a professional headshot that can be used for personal branding.

It’s up to you on how to proceed and whether or not it is time to update your headshot. Maybe you already have an awesome set of personal branding images, thats great news!  but maybe a friend or colleague may not have?  Make a difference for someone else and please share this article.
