Actor/Modeling/Muscle Headshots by Nina Drapacz Photography

Big goals for one session. Actor headshots, modeling headshots and athlectic modeling headshots. Clothing choices: three t shirts and a hoodie not intendrd to use...turns out to be the best images came from that hoodie. 

Leon was amazing from the start but initially put on his "posing face", which was great but lacked personality. We talked a bit and he became more at ease. I tried to trigger him to give something more. Every 40 or so images we stopped to see what we were getting and taking it from there. Collaboration is EVERYTHING! I chose to show my personal favorites, chuck full of "Leon" for acting, modeling etc. We were both very pleased with the diversity and the range of personality and expression!

 

Corporate Website Headshots made Fun by Nina Drapacz Photography

Its a day everyone dreads, portrait day like in school! Once I was done, they couldn't wait for me to return to take more! I did two looks, one classic studio and the other a bit more current or cutting edge. They chose both! For different purposes and each person now owns a two perfect retouched portraits to use for social media as well! 

The important part of photographing in a corporate environment is being quick and efficient. Give direction on positioning and tell them where to look. It is also beneficial to have a decent sense of humor, especially when the other co workers are observing and teasing!

 

Personal Branding, Corporate and or Social Media Portraits... Nina Drapacz Photography

Image is everything so don't settle for anything less than perfection! A very fortuitous beginning, this strong ambitious woman was on my bus to Washington DC to march. As a successful business woman she expressed a need for a new portrait for LinkedIn as the current one was a random phone image. 

She arrived prepared with several changes for a variety of looks upon my recommendation. Nervous at first, the strongest images were midway to end. We stopped frequently to go over images and tweak expressions until she found exactly what she wanted to portray for her competitive goals.

After the shoot I uploaded the images, over 500, and we whittled them down to the best- 72! We made three categories with these chosen images, LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media and lastly, a sweet one for mom! She came in for a single perfect image and left with 6 for all different purposes, success!

She showed up with a small suitcase, a fresh blow out and no make up. She didn't need any! Just a dab of lip gloss and some of my bronzer on her eyes and we were set to go with at least a dozen outfits, great music and her doting dad.

Personal Branding Headshots by Nina Drapacz

This mom never ages! She's stunning! I have photographed Erica and her beautiful family for years. She contacted me for a new headshot for an upcoming talk show position which is very exciting! We used her own environment and natural soft window light. Of course we needed hubby and her babies, Ricky and Lucy, to make the session complete!

When Image is Everything, Go for the Best! Professional Headshots by Nina Drapacz

In the age of the Smartphone, one may be hard pressed to "splurge" on a professional image for work websites, social media, corporate images, LinkedIn , singles websites..... A professional image that captures personality and concentrates on looking great can be the key to success in reaching your goals. Its well worth it. Professional photographers not only know the secret to good lighting, they have a trained eye to look beyond the smile to represent who you are at your best!ross ross2 ross3
