Nurse’s Creative Headshot Portraits!
When nurse Tye Murray contacted me for headshots and we discussed what she was wanting, I became excited. Not only did she know what she was going for, she had a lot of good ideas of her own. Furthermore, as Tye began to describe for me the variety of images she was thinking about, it gave me creative ideas. Tye also writes about nursing and medical issues. Thus, in addition to a range of professional headshots, she was also wanting a few images that would supplement her writing in creative ways. During pre-session consultations with Tye, I was listening closely. Importantly, my focus upon what she wanted for her images’ end usage is critical to how I’m able to successfully create portraits. In addition, I honed-in on the style and feel of the images she was hoping to get. Significantly, listening to my clients’ wishes and truly understanding their goals for their images is a CORE VALUE of my photography and imaging approach.
OUR SUBJECT-CENTERED APPROACH IS UNIQUE!
Importantly, our first goal is to clearly understand what clients like Tye are wanting. Consequently, that informs HOW we go about accomplishing their goals. Frankly, that’s an inverse approach to what happens with many portrait photographers. Too often, photographers will fit a client’s wishes into their own stricter template of image creation. Instead, our approach is a “subject-centered” one that truly begins with our client. First, we learn who they are and how they naturally express themselves. Second, we focus upon what they are passionate about. In this process we learn much about how to create their images unique to them. Of course, we guide them with creative and innovative suggestions. The point is, this process and approach makes for a truly collaborative effort. This approach is centered upon capturing them as unique individuals expressing their unique personality. As a result, photographs done in such a way can become precious pieces of image-art. Ultimately, Tye’s images capture her in a moment of her life that can be treasured and passed down!
The image directly above is a classic headshot. However, what is unusual is the “cocoa” background. Notably, this particular background was chosen for Tye due to her blonde hair and light-colored sweater. Furthermore, cocoa backdrops are more popular in other parts of the country but have not been utilized much locally. Finally, we keep a keen eye on the latest portrait trends so Natchez – Vidalia residents look their best!
