A few months ago, I was asked to shoot Frank Bruynbroek’s portrait for his upcoming book called Compawssion, it is a project he was working on for the last 15 years, as well I was asked to shoot and edit a short teaser for the book.
Frank’s passion for photography and his love and compassion for dogs has culminated into a beautiful book of photographs of rescued dogs, and I was happy to take a part in it.
I’d like to talk about Intention in Headshot photography.
There are many aspects I keep in mind through a headshot photography session.
because every one is unique, the most interesting aspect for me is working with my subject.
My job is to lay out the ground on which my subject’s character can flourish and manifest itself so I can capture it. It’s very important for the subject to have intention behind their expression, that’s what I strive for in my sessions.
Light and composition are fundamentals and are second nature to me, I check them constantly and press the shutter only if both are perfect, as well as making sure that the background is just that and doesn’t have any attention grabbing elements.
While Light and composition have to do with esthetics, they are mostly technical, and since I’m very experienced, I always make it work first, so I can concentrate in my subject, this is really what it’s all about.
I find Liron Levo’s shots above, a great example of Intention in Headshot photography, each one captures a moment that represent a character with intention.
The first time I shot a portrait of Rafael Moreira was a few years ago, It was a black and white page ad that run in Guitar player for MI, the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California.
Since then We had many shooting sessions, Here’s the ad and two more images from our latest session.
“Brazilian guitar sensation Rafael Moreira is the true representation of a diverse musician. Infinitely creative, this guitarist, vocalist and producer prides himself with an incredible pedigree of accomplishments working not only independently, but with many of the world’s most influential musical elite.
Currently, Moreira thrives in his latest musical undertaking as lead guitarist for NBC’s hit-maker “The Voice”. Relishing the intense working environment alongside other equally gifted musicians; his diverse playing style is well suited for the overwhelming task of facilitating contestants through songs in varied genres. With little room for improvisation, Moreira’s creativity shines conversely in music where the original version has little to no guitar tracks. Here, he is unrestricted in embellishing the music, allowing it to breathe and flow in a new direction.” Read more [...]
