Moody Head Shots
Ian Robinson Photography Studio recently undertook a head shot session for local author Larry Igbon. Our remit was to produce a selection of moody head shots for his latest crime/suspense novel. Larry was actually married on the same day as the shoot too. Allied to these images, we produced a lovely portfolio of wedding portraits in the studio also.
Larry lived fairly local to Sale, in the Trafford area and sourced us through his Google search.. When he called, we just hit it off and I was looking forward to the session with much anticipation.
As much as we love our family groups and children’s photography, it’s always refreshing when a client walks though our studio doors and gives you a specific idea of what they require. In this case, it was a selection of images for the cover of his latest release.
I find these images to be honest and true, with very little manipulation, except for a tweak in clarity and a Gaussian Blur.
Larry was invited into the studio, following his session, to make his selection. He was overjoyed, very satisfied with what we had produced for him.
“I found Ian after trying several local photographers who could’t accommodate us on short notice.
My request to Ian was to create some memorable photos of my wife and I on the day of our secret wedding. I also wanted some head shots for my novels. Gave Ian a brief of what we had in mind, but he took over like an artist with a blank canvas. Ian posed us and moved us to get the best effects, showing us the results along the way. The final results were terrific, exactly what we had hoped for. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ian Robinson; he is creative, patient and co-operative.”
Thank you so much Larry, it really was a pleasure meeting you!
