How'd You Get That Shot? Medium
If you're looking to update your website or simply need corporate headshots that go beyond the floating-head-on-white-seamless, please feel free to get in touch. We can shoot an entire office of 20 employees in one day or 40 in two days, etc.
Photos of your party shot photojournalism style: with attitude, aesthetics, proper framing, energy, and LIFE! Please get in touch via the contact page for rates and bookings.
I can come to you, you can come to me, we use as much natural light as possible, and I promise it'll be fun and easy. And yes, I can also recommend an awesome make-up artist who's reasonable.
Rates: $750 flat fee (plus travel expenses, if I come to you) for the shoot itself, for an online gallery of images, and for one retouched headshot. Each additional retouched portrait will cost an additional $75 per image.
Work in progress
Some photos from my college thesis, "Shooting Back," winner of a Hoopes Prize and nominated for a W. Eugene Smith Fund award in 1988. The thesis was spurred by having endured a number of assaults while a college student, everything from being kicked unconscious in the middle of Harvard Square while walking home from the library to fending off an attempted sexual assault by a stranger in my dorm room to armed robbery, twice, and more. The idea was simple: I'd go out into the streets of Boston, Philadelphia and New York where women were considered the most vulnerable back in the mid-80's: The Combat Zone, South Philly, and Times Square. There, whenever a man would accost me with a, "Hey, baby, wanna get it on?" I'd answer, "No, thank you, but I would like to shoot your photo." I used one lens and one lens only: a 28 millimeter Nikon lens, meaning many of these portraits had to be shot with the camera held inches from the subject's face.
