Here I Am, Working On Being A Model Citizen

The last “head shot” I sat for was 10 years ago in Omaha. Thankfully, Portland photographer Rachel Hadiashar helped to remedy that situation last week.

Here’s a look at one of the images from the shoot that took place in her industrial Southeast studio space:

If you have the need for a portrait, head shot or wedding photography, I highly recommend getting in contact with Rachel. She helped to put me at ease right away, even though it’s unnatural for me to be on the receiving end of the lens.

Here, let me show you what I mean:

Rachel also suggested I change outfits throughout the session, and that suggestion was key, as I now have the “dude in a sport coat shot” that I can use for conferences, on my About pages or anywhere else where I need to convey a modicum of professionalism.

    Haha, I love that you showed the funny little zen picture! It was so fun to have you in the studio, and I agree it’s nice to have a range of photos to be able to use for different things. I do have to say that although I don’t really accept wedding commissions anymore, I am up for pretty much any kind of portrait situation!
