Rachel & Matt: Headshots Sneak Peak

Posted by Studio222 Photography | 12:22 AM | | 6 comments » | Share on Facebook


It was one of our goals for 2009, as artists, to do something that stretches us outside of our normal comfort zone in our photography. We really were not sure when we made that resolution, how we would go about it, but we figured that the right answer would present itself when it was time. And, as fate would have it, we only had to wait 4 months.

While we did have fun stuffing our faces with all manner of amazing food, snapping thousands of pictures, shopping for shoes and cameras and vintage boots, walking miles upon miles, and meeting amazing new people, we did have an actual photography purpose for our trip to the big city. That purpose was to push ourselves outside of our normal portraiture box into the world of head shots. What better place to learn than in New York? Our talented actor/singer/performer friends needed new head shots and we were more than happy to help them out. (We even snapped a few for ourselves while we were at it.) These two are so gorgeous that they made our job extremely simple and they really took the time to explain the crazy-intense world of "New York Head Shots" to us giving us quite an education on what the aspiring artists in the area are in need of. We had a great time and got some really beautiful images. We hope to continue to grow in this area and hopefully make the trip back up to NYC for more sessions like these.

Enjoy these samples from our sessions. I'll have more after these two pick out their favorites...

Tomorrow I'll post our personal shots from the week and a surprise that we shot the last morning in the city. Stay tuned...

    a children's song comes to mind here..."one of these things is not like the other one"..... i look silly surrounded by so many beautiful, well groomed people with epic, wind-whipped hair. And as big of a dork as Matt is, he cleans up well. (and no one has to know that he was wearing pajama pants in this shot)
