I’ve been taking photos since my grandad gave me a Praktica film camera when I was in high school…
Although the equipment may have changed, the enthusiasm for capturing interesting and beautiful images has stayed. Since working with bands and live performers I’ve developed an eye for moments rather than just a technically well arranged image and it’s this approach that has led me to work in headshot photography.
As an actor you have one image to show both your face and a hint at your abilities and personality, getting to that moment is the challenge of taking a good headshot.
As well as photography, I have a background in music – I’m both a drummer and a producer. This work in production has enabled me to hone my ability to work with people to get the best from them in both live environments and in the studio.
Having been under the microscope of being recorded myself, I understand the need for sessions to be kept light and enjoyable in order to get the best performance. With such a close up style of portrait details count, a comfortable shoot will always result in a better image and this approach is a huge part of how I work.
