There are a couple reasons that I shoot a majority of my headshots on a  solid background.

  1. It looks clean.  I want your headshot, the tool you will be using to help market you and your brand, to be about you.
  2. It allows me to shoot headshots year round.  Here in Louisville, we can get some extreme weather. If it is 90 degrees outside with 85% humidity, or 5 degrees with wind, neither of our minds are going to be on getting the best shots of you.
  3. It looks great in print, websites, and social media.
  4. I’ve looked at and studied a the work of Richard Avedon and Peter Hurley and am drawn to the minimalist look.  It allows me to focus on the person in the image to form a connection.
