We The People of New York

Natural Light Headshots

Chloe asked me to do a quick headshot recently at the end of an event that I'd been photographing at Exeter Racecourse. I had photographed her a while ago at my day of 100 headshots but it was literally a light test, she was laughing at colleagues in the shots! At the time I found [...]
