July 23, 2011 | Headshots

I have photographed people doing yoga, and dance ensembles before, directors and performers, but the idea of a dancer's headshot was new to me. I was contacted by one of the Oberlin College graduating dance majors and I figured I better get educated as to what kind of shots best serve dancers.

February 16, 2010 | Headshots

Oberlin College and Conservatory Headshots

October 21, 2009 | Headshots

So I have recently been doing a lot of headshots for Vocal Performance students in the Conservatory and I have started doing theater department headshots as well.

May 20, 2009 | Headshots

The challenge with photographing an opera singer is that you have to convey drama and personality and spirit with just their face. You don't have their instrument to rely on to tell the viewer what they do. The photo has to catch your eye and draw you in.
