Actor Weston Meredith, booked his actor’s headshots session at the Los Angeles Photography Studio in Burbank. Weston aimed to increase his casting profile through a new portfolio of headshots.
Throughout the session, I directed Weston through multiple looks. From the High School Jock to the Young Father and even the Detetective. I believe headshots should focus on ‘Actors in the Act’. Relaying emotions and feelings to the lens. Thus demonstrating their creative ability. I’m sure with this new collection of headshots Weston will do very well indeed.
Such a pleasure working with Rory! He provides an upbeat comfortable shoot and the quality of his shots are always top notch. Would highly highly recommend working with him if you have the opportunity. Very grateful!
Captain James .T Kirk, TJ Hooker, Denny Crane, icon William Shatner sat for a portrait session in Studio City, Los Angeles last month. From the age of 7 I have watched Star Trek, and admired William Shatner as an actor. Now was my chance to meet and work with a screen Legend. Arriving at his Office in Los Angeles, I could scarcely believe my eyes, as I spotted William Shatner through the window blinds. Taking a few deep breaths, I got to work setting up my portable studio kit. With a number of ideas floating in my head, I explained to Bill, that I wanted to achieve a ‘plain simple expressive look‘ he replied jokingly ‘I don’t do plain‘, I quickly redescribed the look as ‘emotionless‘, and ‘Bill obliged me with a series of wonderful expressions.
I then changed my lighting and, directed Shatner’s expressions to a more fierce look; ‘Bill’ has always played hero’s in the majority of his work and I wanted to make him look more villainous’. Mr Shatner had some fun with these expressions, saying, I’ve played many hero’s I always get the girl.’ It was wonderful to work with, Mr Shatner. As a photographer having the opportunity to photograph an icon is indescribable. I’m looking forward to returning to Los Angeles in June for a series of portrait photography courses. All images where taken with Mamiya Leaf Credo 40 + 645df with MAMIYA SEKOR AF 110 MM F2.8 LS Lens. Photoshoot was supported by lighting and equipment from Calumet Photographic.
