It's head shot time!!!

Occasionally, I get friends ask if they can hire me to do a sitting for head shots. I do head shots for corporate clients, but they are normally several hundred dollars to a thousand dollars for the service. Since many of my friends are real estate agents, struggling actors or small business owners, my normal corporate fee is out of their range. That's why I came up with a better solution for them!

The $50 for 15 minutes head shot day! I devote one day per year to making professional style portraits for a great price. The price includes state sales tax, and it gives a person enough time to get a really nice head shot. The background colors are limited to black, white, gray (grey, if you are European) and blue (real estate agents love blue for some reason). There is no retouching included, but I can remove certain blemishes, wrinkles, a few extra pounds, etc for an extra fee.

Here are some examples of what your head shot would look like...

So, how do you sign up?

The big day this year is Wednesday, November 10, 2010. The location is in the Lake Highlands area, and you can contact me by phone or email, found at, to set your time. Just a warning, though... the lunch times seems to go pretty fast.


In Print, October 2010...

More recent tear sheets from my work that has run in the Dallas Morning News this month. Of course, you probably already saw them, since you subscribe to the best paper in Texas, right?!? The photographs include Adam Levine of the pop band Maroon 5, a shot of the Comerica headquarters in downtown Dallas and a photo of Rick Springfield...

Playing outside with some DIY lenses...

Sunday was supposed to be a day off for me, but I still couldn't help picking up the camera. I wanted to mess around with some old Wollensak enlarging lenses I picked up at an estate sale not too long ago. I wanted to see how they would work as camera lenses attached to my Canon 5DmkII SLR, using a little bit of DIY effort...

I'd say they worked pretty well, considering I only paid about five dollars a piece. I wish I had a close friend who had a milling machine. I have some ideas on how to attach these things with a better focusing system. Right now, focusing is q little bit of a chore.
