I met Billy through his modeling agency (Wilhelmina) a couple of weeks ago, and he asked me to do some headshots for him. Billy’s old headshots (which I loved) were done by one of my favorite headshot photographers here in LA, so I challenged myself to see if I could outdo them. A main reason why I loved his old headshots so much was because they were directionally lit and had such a dramatic film still feel, so I wanted to keep that all the same. The following is what I came up with, and we’re both pretty happy with the outcome. Comparing these shots with some of the first headshots I did about a year ago, I think I’ve come a long way with lighting.
