Besides portraits for personal use, I often find myself creating portraits with a different intent, a professional one. "Head Shots" as they're known in the acting/music/performance world. With a Head Shot session, clients will take their favourite image(s) and use these to promote themselves to agencies etc, looking for work as models, actors etc.
Jayden was a total charm in the studio, showing me his multi-faceted personality. He's got a sense of humour about him as well. Although doesn't have a specific preference of modelling or acting, he DOES know that he wants to get paid for his good looks.
The recipe: Canon 5D MKII, 70-200 f4 L Series lens. ISO 200-800
