headshots for singers & artistes

These are some recent shots that I was commissioned to take of opera singer Bradley. He booked one of my deluxe adult headshot packages. These packages are designed to give the sitter sufficient time to get shots for their professional requirements. Sessions take half a day and the time is combined between the studio and locations nearby.

We set out to use the location time to get some contemporary headshots. I used natural light and a shallow depth of field for these shots, which allowed me to give a nice blur to the background and to draw attention to the subject. For the studio shots we wanted to make it look as though Bradley was on stage. For these shots I used a single profoto beauty dish up high with a grid. This gives a very focused beam not unlike a spotlight on stage. Detail was filled in with a reflector and the whole studio was kept dark.
