Some Notes On Style

Please do not ask me to emulate another photographer's style. Please familiarize yourself with my photographic style. 

You, not the photography itself, should always be the focus of your shot. 

I prefer cinematic portraits to overly poppy, bubblegum style headshots. If you need that, I totally respect and understand it, but I recommend that you find another photographer to do that.

A clear & crisp, properly exposed, tightly-framed, thoughtful portrait will always be a better business tool than a shot that makes you look like you are in a Mission Impossible film, or on the backlot of a huge movie studio. That's just noise and it won't serve you in the long run, so I don't do it. If you look at most successful actors' portraits, they are simple, well-lit, understated photos. 

That goes for commercial and theatrical headshots.

Generally, I prefer cooler tones to warmer tones: light and dark greys, slate, blues, cool blacks, cool, crips whites, & natural greens. I prefer magenta to red. You can of course bring anything you want and if you love a warm color and know that you look great in it, then we will by all means shoot it.
