30 Mar Kent’s Headshots
Meet Kent, an actor/performer out of the Bellingham area. I’ve actually known Kent for a little over a year prior to this shoot. He’s a regular at the Upfront Theater, very entertaining to watch, and just a really great guy overall. The more you talk with him the more you like him. He also runs the Ryan Stiles Golf Tournament fundraising weekend every summer, which he had hired me to shoot.
Kent needed to refresh his headshots, as it’d been a couple years, for his talent agency. He was looking for simple, very traditional headshots. The first thing you’ll notice about Kent as he walks closer and closer to you is his size. I’m 6’2”, 200 lbs., and his large 6’4″ frame dwarfs mine. He’s a guy that you would instantly want to cast into a dominate character role, as he has and edge to him aside from his size. Put a thick goatee on the guy and he’s a harley rider who can step into the door of a bar and fill up the whole thing with attitude. Hence the reason why I very much enjoyed taking the photo style of Kent at the top of the page, it just seemed fitting. A little more drama, a little mood. The rest of the image styles are pretty clean, pretty standard, which exactly what Kent was looking for (showing a range from smiling to very serious expressions). We quickly shot a few photos outside, but quickly had to duck into the studio to avoid the cold and wind. Enjoy the photos, a lot more coming down the chute.
