Chicago actor Isaias Perez is the second model I found on Instagram who I have worked with on a headshot photoshoot. I’m not going to lie, it was his hair that drew me in. I knew immediately he would be perfect for some catalog style suit photos as well as standard actor headshots on a white background. The shoot wouln’t have been a success without the hard work of stylist Isaac King.

After we finished shooting the suit photos, we headed outside to catch the sunset and some fall color along Lake Michigan in Rogers Park.
I really liked how converting this image to black and white brang out the angles of his bone structure.
