Remembering Gene Pitney

Got to shoot him at Sunset Studios. He was such a cool guy. Really nice. So many great songs. Tons of touring and connecting with his fans up to the day he died.

 
 

GENE PITNEY
2/17/40 - 4/5/06

And he bought me lunch.

This is so cool...

I Want To Shoot You!

It's been just over a year since I launched my reinvention of the headshot and I have to say, "It's been a blast!" Every session has been completely different and always full surprises. It's been so much fun co-creating with each and every person I've work with, or I should say play.

Below are some of the amazing human beings I've had the privilege to photograph - I'm so grateful for each of them allowing me in, being willing to throw caution to the wind and stepping into the unknown. What might seem scary at first (for both of us), quickly becomes an exhilarating experience.  

If you are looking for something different than the two-hour/three looks/posed in front of the same old backgrounds, EMAIL ME HERE and we'll set up a complimentary meet-up (generally a couple of hours) to see if we're a good fit. You can also learn more about the shooting process and read testimonials HERE.

I am currently booking for LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK. And stayed tuned if you'd like to shoot your session in PARIS!

You get more than headshots...
my sessions are adventure days!

My Latest Photoshoot

We (me, Pumpkin and Kimberly) were out shooting Kimberly's session all day Saturday. We started around 10:45am with the clothes picking and then headed out for destinations unknown. It was one adventure after another plus plenty of surprises. Fun and unexpected turns ruled the day and night.

I thought this photograph (a personal shot) was the last of the day since it was around 10pm...

 
 

...until we went back to where we began and I did a few more shots there. Then we decided to get food - it was midnight by that time - yup, more photos there. Then we ended up at the North Hollywood subway station, as an afterthought. I think we parted ways around 2am. Longest photoshoot I've done. And still editing. 

If you are you need new photographs of yourself and looking for an new experience check out my Creative Portraiture page. I can only shoot three people per week. I will be shooting in Los Angeles for a few more weeks and have openings, then I'll be available for sessions in New York for a couple of months.

Book your free two hour meeting with me now.

A photograph from one of my Creative Portraiture adventure day sessions. I love catching moments that look like movie stills. And they are great for the actors to put on their websites. You can see another photograph from Isabella's session on this previous blog post

If you know anyone looking for new headshots, I'm currently shooting in Los Angeles and also booking sessions for New York.
