Creative Portraits of a Firefighter

As mentioned in the other post, Kyle came in for a corporate headshot session for his realty business.

 

I saw on facebook that he recently became a firefighter, so I asked him to bring in his equipment (along with a little charcoal to apply to his face) to try a conceptual shoot. The results are below, and turned out far better than we have anticipated. We used a standard Halloween fogger and were aiming to go a bit dramatic.

 

First, since the web can only show some of the detail, we’ll show a shot zoomed in to show more facial expression – especially the eyes.

Now, here are a few more full views. We couldn’t stop editing this photo, and made a few versions with different post-production treatment styles.

As you’ll see around our site, this photo looks perhaps even more amazing when cropped tighter and more horizontally. So here are some cropped versions of the photos shown above.

The success of this shoot has inspired us to shoot more of what we may call “Hometown Heroes.” Stay tuned for more information.
