My Baby Brother
My younger brother, Jason, recently came to visit me from Western Pennsylvania with the hopes of getting some head shots and general promo shots made. He's a musician, singing and playing a variety of instruments, but chose to bring his guitar along for the shoot because it's a lot more portable than a piano! I don't often blog about head shots / promo shots, but I'm making an exception here because I've been trying to get some nice photos of my brother for years and now I finally have them!
I made the normal head shots that he needed, and then a few with the guitar, and then I started to have some fun with this rare opportunity. I'm capable of making the more evenly lit portraits, but also like to work with more dramatic lighting a great deal. Both styles have a definite use and benefit, so it's good to be versatile.
Hopefully these images will help book Jay lots of gigs!
(And I call him my "baby brother" jokingly now. He's bigger than I am!)
