It’s fun when you work with someone new to spend those first few minutes figuring them out and the rest of the session REALLY figuring them out. It’s important to get that initial impression of who they are so you know how to interpret them in photos and then you spend the rest of the time talking with them, learning about them and gaining deeper insights that will help you along the way.
When I met with Model, Actor, Musician, Rico King, who had been a subject in a group shoot the week before, we discussion what he is trying to get across in the photos. We worked hard together to capture the expressions and connection that he wanted. He was wonderful to work with and I very much enjoyed getting to know him. I have some ideas of fun, creative portfolio shoots we could do together so watch for more of Rico in upcoming posts!
