Mike’s Actor Headshots and Portraits for Portfolio and Practice

by dav.d

Not all my photo shoots are paid gigs. I do have my personal projects and then I have what I call practice photo shoots. Practice photo shoots often involve a volunteer model and the model will donate their time and I will donate my photography. They should be mutually beneficial. In this case I wanted to try out a new photo studio down in Draper. They have lights, seamless backgrounds, and a changing room. I wanted to try it out before I used it for a paid assignment.

Mike is an actor who needed some actor headshots and some other photographs to advertise himself as an actor and model. So it was mutually beneficial to work together… I had a model to work with and he had some photographs to use in comp cards.

Mike definitely put the changing room to use. He brought a variety of outfits and we also did a few shirtless photographs because when you workout as much as he does you need to show that off.

After the studio shoot we thought it would be a good idea to get some photographs in another location. We went to Fairmont Park in Sugarhouse and created some photographs. Fairmont Park is fairly generic but it is a great place for greenery. We did find some cool stairs near a fire pit. Score.
