Often times when I do a shoot I will alternate between different lighting approaches, and this shoot with fitness model Jamal Akakpo was no exception.
Earlier this month I created this executive portrait for my client Hyatt Hotels Corporation featuring their new Group President – ASPAC.
Australian master hair stylist Vic Picolotto of Tracey Hughes Education, asked me to work with him to create these colorful portraits. Hair, make-up, styling and the background all came together to create these themed images.
Before the repatriation of my friend Vic Picolotto to his native Australia, to work for hairdressing giant Tracey Hughes Education, we decided to get in a few headshot shoots while we still could!
I decided to use a variety of hard light sources to sculpt the light for these portraits. However most of the hair is light from above and behind with a softbox.
