Eric Gray owning one of the sets at the Midsouth Photo Expo. Eric was one of the models that volunteered his time to model for the photographers and speakers at the expo and I’m certainly glad to have grabbed some shots of him like this one. Totally killin’ it here, Eric!
Time for another “LOL Thursday” image with Amy bringin’ the laughs this time around. It’s shots like this that demonstrate why I love doing headshot work.
One of my favorites here from my Classic Hollywood style portrait session I did last year with Elisabeth Donaldson. These shoots are often “static” setups but Elisabeth had this amazing dress (from Goodwill no less!) that moved beautifully. I asked her to start tossing it up in the air and I would capture images of her as it flowed around her. The result was a series of surreal and ethereal images that have an almost underwater or “low gravity” look to them.

Malea looking rather melancholy during our shoot at the Marathon building back in 2011. I’ve been having fun going through some of these older images and re-processing them. A little split toning can go a long way to pump up the mood and feel of an image.

Kara totally owned this week’s Headshot of the Week! with this image from our recent session. This shot comes from part of a group session with about 20 other people that stepped in front of my camera during that hour. Kara’s lovely smile and great engagement here made for an easy pick for Headshot of the Week! Thanks, Kara for working with me on this one!
Taking a look back into my days on the horse farm in Burns, TN. This young lady is my friend’s daughter which he brought to see our horses. Though photographing children isn’t my “thing” she presented some great opportunities to break out the camera.
