…are always interesting people to photograph and a recent sitting with author Mike Richards proved to be no exception. Mike has written several books and been involved with film making , so I was flattered to be trusted to produce a set of headshots to be used in publicity materials and for banners and posters at various literary festivals around the country
Photographing adults is a much more demanding job than shooting children…kids are generally without self consciousness and therefore it’s relatively easy to capture their various changing emotions during the course of a photoshoot. Adults,particularly creative people, often have quite fixed views of how they wish to present themselves…which may not always suit the real person inside. When photographing Mike we spent quite a time chatting about his writing and experiences …only then was i happy to start pressing the shutter release! A couple of changes of tops and a wide ranging discussion allowed me to capture several sides of this interesting man’s character…so much so, that instead of just ordering the usual amount, Mike took three times as many, as he felt they would allow him to choose an image that was suitable for the variety of media that he would be published in.
There is a selection of images form the shoot below….if you need head shots as an actor,writer, performer or just want a business or social media picture that is much more interesting than the inevitable “selfie” …give me a call on 07920 133159…I would love to provide a stunning selection of photographs for you!
