For the last few years I have had the privilege of shooting at the Outlets of Castle Rock to cover the arrival of Santa and their tree lighting. Each year features some great musical talent and this year was no different. Rising country stars, Waterloo Revival and Morgan Evans put on a great show and there was a great turnout. Check 'em out and get on down to The Outlets of Castle Rock - maybe I'll see you there for Moonlight Madness on Thanksgiving night!
I was very thankful for the opportunity to hold a headshot/portrait session with Realtor, Josh Gilbert. Josh was in the process of building his business collateral and wanted to put together some photos for his business cards, web presence, etc. He had been drawn to my black and white work and the portraits of musicians, and wanted a similar look and feel, though he was very open to collaboration which is always awesome.
I met Josh last week at his home and set up in his living room. We spent about an hour working different looks, outfits and a couple of different backgrounds. While Josh certainly needed a few select photos with nice clean looks, warm and pleasant smiles, etc., he was also very open to the "in-between" ... those magical moments, sometimes moody, sometimes gut-busting that hit the camera just right.
These are a few of my favorites from our shoot that hit on all of those notes. Had a great time and always, was very thankful for the trust that has been given to make someone's portrait.
