I am very excited to share this shoot with all of you. I have shot at this location a few other times, but this was the first time there with a male client. It always amazes me, how different a location can look simply because of the subject. But this location is almost unrecognizable. Although I do mostly candid shots I do provide direction at times. I love the challenge of knowing which direction to give my client. Male and female poses are very different, as are child poses. Just like when writing, one must think about the subject and the audience. Giving direction during a shoot requires the same thought.
As always I ask my clients if they would like to bring something important to them to the session. It can make a photo that much more meaningful. This client brought his saxophone. I really love the details of a photo, so the photos of him playing are some of my favorite.
