The session is over…now what? In the final part of my series on setting up a successfull headshot session. I talk about my practices after a shoot to insure an awesome customer service experience. I talk about the power of word of mouth, reviewing your images, and delivering your images. I lead it off with a great shot of the awesomely talented Zach Sutton, of Zach Sutton Photography. Zach is another kick ass headshot photographer based in Albuquerque, NM. Zach flew out to LA recently just to get a headshot, we had an awesome time and I learned a lot from him. Actors in the New Mexico area better look this guy up! Head over to Fstoppers.com for the full article.
In part two of series on setting up a successful headshot session I talk about challenges we face while at a shoot. From skin issues to makeup to getting your client comfortable in front of the camera, I talk about it all. There are many things that can weigh on both a photographer, and the client confidence level. Working with confidence in anything you do can be the most important practice when running your business. Head over to Fstoppers.com for the full story.
In my newest article on Fstoppers.com I start a 3 part series on steps I believe can help ensure you create a successful headshot session. If you are a photographer who is just starting out, this is a must read. It is a culmination of many questions and conversations I’ve had regarding how I started, and what I do for each session. When I first began shooting headshots, it was a daunting task. Figuring out a rhythm for how a headshot session should go felt like an overwhelming problem. Head over to Fstoppers to read part one of this series.
Retouching Hotel Rooms
My latest article is up over at Fstoppers.com. I created a 2 hour video going through every step I take when I’m retouching a hotel room photograph. It’s fairly in-depth, and fairly long. I’ve had a lot of questions from other photographers about my process, so I figured this would be the easiest way. Feel free to check out the video below, and read the full article over at Fstoppers here. To see more of my hotel work visit Dylan Patrick Hospitality Photography
