There’s nothing greater than having some fresh new photos of myself to put on my blog or anywhere I want people to connect my face to my branding. It’s always exciting to meet up with some other photographers and shoot each other for fun. For me in this case on Sunday, I was still a bit tired from the wedding the night before down in San Diego, so I just shot Wayne by himself.
Wayne Toshikazu is also a photographer from Orange County and we met back in August at David Jay’s “Free to Succeed Tour” in LA. A few weeks ago Wayne contacted me and asked if I could shoot some new headshots for him. I’m always honored when another photographer asks me to shoot them, but at the same time I’m not sure if I’m scared to mess up or if they will be critical of my shots. I had to push those terrible thoughts aside and just pretend like I’m just shooting another one of my clients that hired me to do what I love to do.
Overall, Wayne was such a natural in front of the camera and I know he’s reading this right now and laughing because he told me it feels different to be on the other side of the camera. We headed down to The Lab for Wayne’s headshots and we cranked it out in under 30 minutes! Here are a few of my favorite shots of Wayne and I’m really excited to see which one’s he will use on his blog.
Yes, I can rock the “Black & White” from time to time and Wayne couldn’t decide if he wanted glasses on or off, so I just said we’ll do both.
