Many years ago, I began my photographic career shooting portraitures and school day pictures with Olan Mills. This was a great training ground, especially shooting from five to seven hundred kids a day (yeah, yikes). From that, I moved on to rock bands, headshots, and models.
Michael Caine said once on Actor’s Studio, most of acting is in the eyes. The focus of my photography is the eyes. Everything else, although important, is secondary.
This summer, 2015, I will be opening an office in Austin and setting up shop to shoot headshots for the movie industry. I look forward to working with raw talent, helping beginners learn the art and craft of studio stills. It’s not just getting someone’s good side. It’s capturing an entire story in the fraction of a second the shutter clicks.
I’d like to work with an Agency in a duel role, as voice talent and as resident photographer. I have ideas on how to reduce costs for beginning actors while giving them the experience they need for that next paying job, moving pictures or still.
