Clarkston High School Sport photography of the football captains. The team putting the program together wanted to feature the nine senior captains of the football team and asked if I would do some shots. Always glad to help local sport, I agreed. We shot the seniors in the football jerseys against a white backdrop with simple directional light. I got them looking all mean, tough and menacing. This is the group of athletes that lead Clarkston to their second state championship in three years, quite an accomplishment
I know some of the seniors used the images for their senior open house banners. Some made high school senior prints for Mom and Grandma.
I am in conversation again with the program team to do not only the football seniors, but possibly all the fall sports program seniors. Looking forward to nice images of Clarkston’s finest.
I did these business couple portraits of a married couple for their seminar business. We started in the Guardian building in downtown Detroit where we used the lobby and gates as some of the backgrounds. We also shot in some of the office space and found a great tiled wall and a nice yellow wall to use as backgrounds.
This is a recent example of executive headshots being done on location. The Clarkston Chamber of Commerce had an annual meeting where most of the Ambassadors and Officers were attending. The Chamber asked me to come at the end of the meeting and shoot new headshots of the chamber and staff. I set up a typical headshot lighting with white background and photographed everyone there in about an hour. We had to schedule a few people who could not make the meeting for an additional session at my studio. I have photographed many additional sessions for the Chamber as the members and staff change, trying to keep the look similar.

Musician photography of a young man, bassoonist & conductor, shot in the studio. This young man is a bassoonist and aspiring conductor. He is in his final year at U of M in Ann Arbor, MI. He needed some headshots for all of his upcoming performance and interview needs.
These are pretty straight forward studio headshots. I got hime to the studio, asked him a bit about what his needs are, talked about the style of shots he and I like and then came up with a plan to shoot on black and them on white. At the end of the session I brought out the ring light for some non music headshots.
