Photographers in the Hotseat - Creating a Headshot

Last week, my colleague and friend Kevin Harkins, of Harkins Photography in Londonderry, NH, suggested that we get together and refresh our headshots. I thought, what an awesome idea! So we met up at my studio in Kevin's hometown of Lowell and proceeded to watch each other work, first-hand. We were each in that seat that you all dread! It was incredibly interesting just to see how the other approached the lighting and compositions. What I was struck by was how we each produced photos that were distinctly different and still incredibly consistent with our own personal styles, even though we were shooting in the exact same setting.

Here are my favorite shots that I created of Kevin. Watch for Kevin's shots of me on his blog at:
