THEY’RE BACK!

This was my 388th shoot since setting up my Headshots Photography business 8 years ago.  It was my 7th session with Andrew & Pete!  Putting them officially in the first place as my most loyal clients EVER!

A HOT NEW TREND IN HEADSHOTS

Before the grand reveal, I want to talk quickly about the exact style Andrew and Pete requested from me for their headshots this time around. What I’m loving about this type of headshots request, in particular, is that it has given me a great excuse to start showing you beautifuls the subtle differences and refinement happening with the headshots world.

Specifically in the brand-aware entrepreneurial space.  With this area being still very much on-trend, photographers like me are starting to see these beautiful snaps and spin-offs when it comes to aesthetics.  I really want this to stick around because it gives me the creative sparks.

HERE IS WHAT I MEAN BY THIS

You can look at this through musicology.  Think about spin-off genres.

IN MUSIC…

  • So we would never have had Grime Music if it hadn’t been for the UK Garage Music Scene. 
  • That wouldn’t have come about if it wasn’t for Jungle, RnB, Dance-Pop
  • and on and on back to the beginnings of electronic music.

IN FASHION…

  • We would never have gotten to Dolly Kei (fun Japanese look where you dress up like a vintage doll).
  • Without having seen the Lolita fashion trend which came from wider Japanese Street Style Culture
  • Which goes all the way back to the ’70s.

WIDE-REACHING INSPIRATIONS

On this shoot, Andrew and Pete sent me a range of images they liked from TV shows:

to Time Magazine Covers…

…to links on different YouTube channels, as well as fashion photography from their fave brands. 

As we are in a content renaissance wider reference points give us more creative prompts to work from.
