Isle of Wight Headshots
Isle of Wight actor Alice and model for ModelMe Management got in touch with me three months ago needing a headshot for her profile page. It’s a brave proposal from someone who is busy with life and her decision to see things through hints at her determination, courage and tenacity to push through life, even when it tries to kick you down.
Planning a simple headshot session outdoors is a radical change, but the Isle of Wight has lots of lovely corners to use and it opens up the possibility of charming portraits that lends themselves to images that convey ‘warmth’ layered over the grey backdrop of a studio-styled headshot.
“I’ve always loved natural portraits,” says Alice as she takes a peek at her wardrobe (she’s got great style). An array of coordinating outfits lay on the boot of my car as we rearrange the accessories to improve the flow and make way for polished photographs that gave a nod to studio headshots whilst preventing them from feeling too sterile.
I think Alice’s colour choices and materials are very beautiful. Having an eye for complementing, rather than conflicting with her soft and charming gaze, Alice is propped casually in one corner of the park, introducing another warm smile in her photos.
Overall, the combination of cool studio inspired headshots and rustic photos in the park conveys a modest kind of modernity, and evokes an air of calm that is fitting for Alice’s new life as an actor in the making.
Alice, kind-hearted and funny, smashed this session. A big thank-you to your dad who came along and was immediately put to work carrying all the gear. I know he is very proud of you. Good luck in your career and get in touch again for the next installment.
I create beautiful pictures with natural looks, give wardrobe advice and help style your session to bring out your inner confidence in front of the camera using my humour and enthusiasm.
