To snap myself out of my extended-winter doldrums in late-February, I decided to do a couple of “fun” personal shoots (rare) – one was slated to be a more typical beauty shoot & the second was to be a casual corporate/glam shoot with personality-driven reporters’ headshots as the aim.
I contacted my friends, dusted off my beauty lights, softboxes & reflectors and we got to work. The first shoot ended up covering a lot more ground stylistically than I had planned thanks to an awesome creative team & the second shoot turned out to be something I hadn’t ever quite encountered before..
I had plenty of experience with serious portraits in the past, for both corporate headshots as well as DJ/artist portraits.. I had even more experience with beauty & glamour, having honed my craft with likely over a thousand studio shoots logged for Kayce Models. Once the shoot started, however, I realized I’d never really taken fun corporate portraits before – I wanted to show Amanda’s natural sass, radiant personality & on-camera professionalism, all at once.
The process of reviewing & selecting her images was a tough experience, almost needing to retrain my eyes to look for multiple qualities in an expression/pose rather than a singular mood within the shot – projecting just serious, just sultry, or just beautiful was a lot easier than what I wanted to do this time around.
Without further adieu, I’d like you to meet the beautiful Amanda Soufi, recent Ryerson Journalism graduate with an avid interest in entertainment news & a self-professed adventurer with “wanderlust” – I have no doubt that you’ll be seeing her on TV somewhere in the near future!
The first set of “reporters’ headshots” from Amanda’s shoot can be seen here.
