Ottavia | Acting Headshots

Ottavia is one of our Blueflash brides in the past (Ottavia and Lucas got married at Five Bridge Inn if that jogs your memory). You might also remember Lucas because we did some headshots for him for his new book that he wrote. This time it’s Ottavia’s turn to get some headshots. She’s getting back into acting and needed to update her photos and I was happy to do it for her.

 

We met up in Providence to take the photos and it was great to talk a little bit and catch up since the last time we saw each other (Lucas’s headshot session). We’re wishing her the best of luck with her acting career and hope these photos help her out along the way!

Salvatore Mancini | Celebration of Age

We ended up at this event in such a strange way. I had an idea kicking around in my head for about a half of a year where I wanted to partner up with a senior home of some type and bring our studio gear to their place and do portraits of all the residents. I wanted to do it as personal work – just a project that I thought would be good for the community.

 

I had contacted a few places but strangely enough couldn’t find any takers. I was surprised, since I wasn’t asking for anything in return. I got discouraged and pretty much gave up on the idea. After some time passed my buddy Steph (of Stephanie Mills Photography) shot me a message asking if I wanted to do some portraits for the Salvatore Mancini Center’s Celebration of Age event. She wasn’t able to do it due to other obligations and once I found out what it was I was totally game for it.

 

It’s an event that they have every year to honor anybody in the community over the age of ninety. They come and bring a family member and they serve them lunch, have some entertainment, and play some games. They also get a portrait of themselves on the way in (which is where I come in). I was pumped. I enlisted the help of my good friend Breanna to assist for the shoot and we lugged the studio gear to the center. We set up shop in the lobby and next thing we knew the seniors were coming through the door and sitting for their photo.

 

It was fun. It was interesting. It was humbling. These people have lived so many years and experienced so much in their lifetime. They’ve gone through so much, many of them experiencing extremely hard times and also some of life’s most exciting highs. A lot of them were great to interact with, many of them still sharp as when they were twenty.

 

We used a grey seamless backdrop, a white reflector camera left, a gridded speedlight on the background pointing up, and the key light was a socked 22″ white beauty dish with an Einstein making the light for us. I’m really happy with the look of the shots. If we had some more room they would have come out a touch better. We weren’t able to separate the subjects from the background as much as I would have liked. Consequently the key light was spilling onto the backdrop a bit.

 

Technical imperfections aside, I’m happy with and proud of this collection of photos. I hope they mean a lot to the families that received them (we provided a complimentary 5×7 to each attendee) for a lot of years to come. Check out the images. Every face tells a story. Thanks for letting us be a part of your event, and hopefully we can do it again next year!

Lucas | Author Headshots

We love working with our brides and grooms for other projects after their wedding day. Lucas is a Blueflash groom and is an author. He was getting ready to release his second book and wanted to get himself a clean author photo for the back cover. I was happy to help him out. I headed over to their place in Providence for the author headshot session.

 

We tried to get a variety of poses and looks so he had some different things to choose from. There are a few below for you to check out so you can see what the shoot looked like. We’re hoping Lucas has much success with his second book publishing!

Nicole | Providence Headshots

We love keeping in touch and working again with our brides after their wedding! Nicole works in law and is doing her own thing with her business. She wanted to get some professional headshots to use for the website and other promotional material. I was happy to bring a studio to her house and set up shop.

 

I brought a grey seamless backdrop and some lights, a stool, of course my camera, and anything else I thought we’d need to a good headshot session. Once I set up we went to work trying to capture different looks and expressions for her so she had a good variety to choose from.

 

Love this kind of thing and I’m really happy with the look of the shots. Need some headshots for your business? Acting career? LinkedIn? Just because you like pictures of yourself? Shoot us an email!

Vac | Providence Headshots

In between the weddings and engagement sessions we sneak in a few other things. One of them is headshots. Whether people are putting together a look book for acting, needing some formal corporate type of photo to promote themselves in the workplace, or just need a professional photo for the hundreds of different places online that you need a photo of yourself for, we’re happy to do these types of sessions.

 

Vac falls into the first category. He’s appeared in some TV shows and is continuing to pursue his acting career. He wanted some photos of himself to send to casting directors so he can land his next big role. Vac and I met in Providence and took his headshots in a few different locations.

 

All the best to you Vac, hope to see you on screen soon!
