the Cook family

The Cook family is a returning group to Herman V. Brandt Photography. Although I have taken their family photos for family events, this was their first official family photoshoot in the studio with me, and it was a ball!!!! I have not had this much fun with a camera in my hands in a very long time! They only spent a hour, well a bit over that, and I wish I could have kept them longer. I know I will be having them in front of my camera again, there is no doubt about that. Make sure to check out the black and white version, click on the image to see the stream.

Shaun is a young up and coming model, and came to me to assist him with a diverse session to get his portfolio started. Though he had no experience in front of the camera prior to this shoot, he managed to give me some great looks, he has some angles that worked very well for me, giving a natural strong but kind look that resulted in some great portraits.
Tank you Shaun for choosing me to assist you in your first steps.

Alex from vultran creative group, by Herman V. Brandt

So I went on craigs list and got a crazy deal on a mint canon 70-200L 2.8 IS! i had to drive for 2hrs to get it, but it is definately worth it! these where the first shots I took to test it out. I love how it reduces the ammount of noise at high ISO's. I got it mainly for weddings and fashion, and will keep it safe for those opportunities. My next moves are the 24-70L 2.8 and the canon 5D MKII

Pastor D is a returning client. I have worked with him in a couple of project. These head shot was to be used for a political campaign, as he goes for mayor. This head shot was to give a friendly but strong corporate look.

Antoine came in the studio for some head shots he intended to use for his marketing campaing, as he sells medical supplies specializing in diabetis medical supplies. Antone goal was to get some headshots that will give a young business casual feel, these head shots were to look friendly, aproachable but still business.
