Mezzo Soprano

Christina-245-950px-Edit

Last week, I did headshots for a dear friend and one of my favorite subjects. Christina is an opera singer and needed updated headshots for auditions and also a new personal website.  She has just finished a successful summer of concerts and training with the Asheville (NC) Lyric Opera Young Artist Program, as one of just six singers chosen to participate.

We photographed these images with window light in the background.  The style of headshots for opera singers today is moving away from solid white background. In these portraits, I used a narrow depth of field so the window frame and the greenery outside would go out of focus and thus not distract from the main subject.

Faithful readers will recall other photographs I’ve taken of Christina.  If you do a search for “Christina” in the search box to the right, you’ll see some earlier posts with images of her as well as a link to a video we created together.

Wishing Christina all the best in her budding opera career!

That Eyebrow Thing

Megan-126-950px-Edit

OK, this post is about more than “That Eyebrow Thing.” But, first things first, be sure to click on each image to see it in a LARGER and CLEARER size.

I recently did a photoshoot in the studio with Megan, an accomplished singer, dancer and actor.  Megan is working hard in the New York theater scene and waiting for her big break. Given her skills, experience and enthusiasm – it’s going to happen soon!

Faithful readers will recognize my style of “beauty” headshots in three of the images in this post. These are great fun to shoot and can be so revealing of a subject’s personality.

So, in the picture above, did you notice anything special? Yes, Megan has that rare talent of being able to raise one eyebrow and still flash an engaging smile. When I coached her to “Just do that eyebrow thing,” she delivered every time. This is one of the more subtle versions.

Here’s a view of the whole Megan, head to toe. Thanks Megan, for a great day of shooting. Here’s hoping these images will help you land that big break gig on the stage!

9-Year-Old Beauty!

Connie-107-Edit-1000px

This week I had the pleasure of shooting with Carmen, a lovely, spunky and smart 9-year-old girl.  She is a talented singer and actor with good genes: her mom is an accomplished opera singer and Carmen was named for her mother’s signature role on the opera stage.

Please click on any of these images to see them in a LARGER and clearer size – on your computer, phone or tablet!

This special young lady has the whole package – looks, charm and ability. She has an audition on Broadway this week and will submit these images when she tries out for one of the hit musicals on The Great White Way.

Carmen has a promising future ahead of her in the performing arts – you can just feel it when you meet her. You Go, Girl!
