Why I Like Working in My Studio
I love working in my headshots studio because a photo studio is such a novel environment. Most people display a child-like fascination with all the studio's lights and backgrounds and accouterments as they step in the door.
"I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense… symbolic of themselves." Richard Avedon
I love it when that happens because I'll let my inner child show, actively sharing the excitement of the experience with them. My efforts at bonding with them tell people they can safely drop their guard and share the best of themselves with me.
