Samantha had come to my studio looking for headshots, but when someone with her style and flair is standing in your studio, it’s an opportunity.
After we captured the headshots she needed, we decided to try some more creative concepts. Using the outfits she had with her… adding a splash of bold colour and some flowers… and well, see for yourself. She personifies elegance in this series.
One of the telltale signs of a talented performer is their ability to take on different roles. With a simple outfit change the mood in the images changed… and the sort of aloof attitude became almost palpable. As a photographer I want to work with people who can genuinely express, and she could do that regardless of theme. It was impressive.
We finished the session off with something a little more regal. Rich colours and an exotic / dramatic flair. The images below, to me, feel strong and empowering… which I suspect isn’t that far off from being a true representation of her personality – at least on stage.
