BJP [head shots]

I was down in Melbourne over the weekend and an acting student at Victoria College of the Arts approached me for some head shots. The head shot, for what it’s worth, is a bit of a big deal – because this is the entry point that people in the industry have to you, in some cases before they meet you.  So how you appear in an online listing is important.  We did capture images that suited this purpose, but what you see here is more of the Beth-getting-carried-away part of the session…Emma has the most amazing, expressive eyes, as an actor she can do so much, how am I supposed to resist that??!  It’s going to be great to follow her development through her course and beyond in her working career.  I love the image of her in the lane way she looks like a mannequin doll.  We were testing clothing and ideas for that part, and the very first frame was the winner, how about that.

Which is your favourite image?


The scene of the crime…complete with audience! She did well:)

I love the laneway one too. But really, they’re all great portraits Beth. You’re a very clever photographer!

Oh thanks Katie, I need to get jiggy with subscribing to blogs so i can keep up on what everyone is doing too. Thanks so much for commenting, emma was pleased with them. It’s fun to go a little crazy and see what happens! Got any shoots coming up?

Love the 6th one from the top – the black and white one where she appears to be looking up (coyly) – her eyes are amazing!

Ahhhhh interesting! I know she has the most amazing eyes! I’ll make sure she knows what you said Kathy – hope eveyrone is doing well over there in Toronto – enjoying the spring weather? :)

Hey Emma i know how crazy! You did well, and gave me so much look and feel to play with, thanks again so much for your contribution to the image making process. I aways say you get what you give with photography – so the more you give, the more you will get back at the end of the day. xx
