Portrait & Event Photography NYC

"About Faces" at Princeton University 12/7/17

I was so thrilled to receive an email from a good friend and former professor of mine from Albuquerque. Brian Herrera left UNM shortly after I graduated and relocated to Princeton, NJ where he currently teaches. Brian was working with another professor, Monica Huerta, on a special presentation on actors expressions, and specifically the process of headshot photography. Why do actors need headshots? What makes a good headshot? How does an actor prepare for having their headshots taken? 

Brian invited me to come to Princeton University to give each student a mini-headshot session throughout the course of the lecture. We shot in one of Princeton's gorgeous new art buildings next to a big window on a sunny afternoon, and I wanted to share a couple of my favorites.
