Last one for tonight... these last two have both been re-edits of some of my earliest headshots I attempted to shoot against white. This one in particular has long been one of my favourite headshots.

I met Samantha through a mutual friend (Nadia), and immediately wanted to work with her. One of the most beautiful women I've ever met, and wicked full of energy. I remember she kept telling me "I'm not a model,", like there was even a chance that photos of her wouldn't be stunning.

Of course the re-edit is more Hurley-ish for adding to me new headshot portfolio.

Going back, so the lighting is different then my other Hurley-esque shots... but it was close enough to warrant a re-edit and addition to this portfolio.

And really, I think every portfolio could be improved a little with the addition of a girl as beautiful as Raven. :)

One more for tonight... earlier in the week I shared a headshot of Jeff, the volun-told husband. Well this is Ashley the volunteer-y wife haha.

The only thing that stands out to me as I critique it myself is the shadow caused by her hair on her cheek. I suppose I could clone it out but I'm trying to get to the point where I don't have to spend a million years doing post. Still love the shot, just something I'm going to have to watch for next time.

So, this is the result of an exciting and eventful trip to the mall, turned into guests for dinner, turned into 'lets do a photo shoot while you're here'.

And I think it may be one of my best shots yet.

To say Jake is photogenic would be a massive understatement, he has been working as a model for some time... from what I understand signed with Angie's in Ottawa for some time and doing a lot of work out of Toronto. Shooting him was easy...

Great guy as well, highly recommended to anyone looking for a male model.

This is Jeff. Jeff is Ashley's husband. I'm pretty sure Ashley made him do this... :P

I had put out a call for volunteers for a while back, had already worked with Ashley in the past... but had improved significantly since then. We planned another shoot and answering my call for male volunteers, she voluntold her husband. I wasn't complaining haha.

This test also got me through a lot of trials today as I spent hours working with it trying to learn all about colour spaces, ProPhoto vs sRGB, the fact that many browsers are not colour managed which would render the photo looking really saturated. If this photo looks really red to you, download Firefox. ;)

Anyways thanks to him for lending me his face!
