We're constantly organizing our photography portfolio and archives, and every now and then it's good to reflect back on some of our favorite images.

Photographing people is one of our favorite things. Over the course of several years we've had a chance to photography dozens of people in both studio settings or as in more lifestyle/documentary shoots. We love it.

That intimate vulnerable space that you as a photographer you share with the person in front of the camera, that singular moment you want to capture with an emotion, it all comes together to. tell a bit of a story to the viewer. To inspire curiosity. To question.

We recently completed a headshot studio session for Charlotte Welch, one of the head fashion designers of House of Borel.

Using our Profoto B1 lights, connected wirelessly to the ever-amazing Sony A7Rii, we were able to capture the essence and true personality of Charlotte Welch, using some of the techniques and process we learned from Norman Seef, one of the top photographers in the world for the work he's done with some of the most talented artists of recent memory.

We love studio shoots like this, where we get to learn what drives people like Charlotte in doing what they do. Talking about life, career, inspiration, art, whatever it is that flows in our conversation, we allow everyone at the studio to be completely comfortable in front of the camera, and thus, capturing the real beauty of who they are.

Thank you Charlotte for an amazing time at our studio!

On Faces

With our media pass this year at Burning Man, we wanted to photograph and film as much as possible. As it turns out, filming didn't happen at all, since we were so inspired by just the thought of carrying around the Sony A7R to take high-res photos of cinematic memories on the Playa.

We are currently still working on hundreds of photos we took at the event (pre-event as well), but one of the things we did was take a series of portraits of our campmates at Burning Man. Our theme camp this year was called FAFA (Fucking Awesome French Americans), and it quickly became a family of friends.

True genuine souls, there for each other, representing everything that Burning Man signifies. After nine years of attending this week-long life experience, I couldn't be happier to have been welcomed so warmly to this tribe, and as a result these portraits are just a small testament of their incredible generosity and humanity.

I would randomly ask people throughout the week to think, visualize, and relive their favorite moment so far at Burning Man. And as they took a deep breath, they would open their eyes and look straight at the camera. I would only take one single photograph. That would be it.

I feel these portraits were so successful in capturing that emotion, and it's already giving me many ideas of what to do next year to take it a step further and venture into video portraits instead.
