Corporate headshots

Ambient light rules the world
That’s a plain fact
But sometimes you can’t utilize it
When that happens, strobes are a game changer
That, and reflectors, casting soft light
With each outing,
I develop more control over highlights, mid tones, and shadows
Take a peek at this recent set
Thank you!

Outdoor Headhsots

Good ambient light rarely disappoints. When executive teams and business professionals request outdoor headshots, I’m always game. The challenge of finding good light in unlikely places is addicting in the best possible way. Scroll and enjoy. As always, thank you for visiting.

What is your life’s great passion?

My greatest passion is my family, especially my children. I never knew what pure love was until I had children. They are the light in my life, and I am constantly amazed watching them grow into kind, smart, and funny (this is very important in our household) human beings. I couldn’t be more proud to be their mother.

What personal achievement are you most proud of?

I’m most proud of my work as a journalist. It was my dream as a child to be a broadcast reporter, and I made it happen. It took a lot of hard work and many rejections to get there (I still have the stack of rejection letters as a reminder to myself to always keep going). My biggest personal achievement was when I was able to report in the Bay Area, and my parents were able to watch me live on television. That felt pretty good.

What’s one of most beautiful places you’ve ever visited?

I would have to say San Sebastian in Spain. It’s absolutely one of the most stunning places I’ve ever seen. There’s this breathtaking beach, Playa de la Concha. It’s a crescent-shaped beach with white sand and blue waters surrounded by lush green hills. It literally takes your breath away when you first see it.

Meet Esther Duterte.
She is the founder of Talent Hound.
An agency that delivers recruiting services with a genuine H2H touch.
Esther hired me to create photos for use on the agency’s Home and About pages.
It’s always gratifying to make images of business pros in urban landscapes.
Away from backdrops, gray, black, or otherwise.
Away from strobes and speed lights, from cubicles and offices.
But still right in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
Yes, very gratifying, indeed.

Adobe: Picture Perfect

Overwhelming gratitude.
That’s how I feel when I photograph at Adobe.
Oh, happy, too, of the bursting variety.
So much to say about this set.
But the images themselves will have to do the talking.
I’m at a loss for words…
