Headshot: Location Payoff
More challenging? Yes. More rewarding? Absolutely.
I’ve recently made a conscious move away from the studio in favour of location shoots. They are not for everybody, granted – some people just want/need a basic plain studio backdrop – and that is perfectly ok. Studio work has its merits and is an art unto itself – I’ve just chosen not to specialize in it. I find myself ravitating more towards the natural esthetic of a location shoot. In this particular image, I really like the rich, warm and textured background that give the image so much character and warmth. The wood here complements the tones in the hair, and the wardrobe is bold, crisp and perfect.
Special thanks to Corinne Begg who posed so well, and Granville Island for proving again what an amazing place it is to shoot.
