Executive Head Shots

In April I went to New York for a workshop with the famed Joey L.  I found out right before I left for that trip that I was going to have to head from NYC to Dallas to do 25 executive head shots in 1 day for RMG Networks.  I found a hair/makeup person, called the hotel and got a decent room to shoot in, and shipped my gear out. Usually I'd want an assistant for something like this but with the timing it was too tight.  Got there to the hotel at 2am Monday morning, was up and setting up by 6am.  Oh, and I found out we had 40 to do and our time was cut down due to meetings people couldn't skip out of.  Even with all that, I got some shots I really liked. 01_RMGnetworks_BrianCordes_02_1845_HR 02_RMGnetworks_GarryMcGuire_2051_HR 03_RMGnetworks_SteveNesbit_02_0475_HR 04_RMGnetworks_HansPusch_02_2091_HR 05_RMGnetworks_CharlesAnsley_02_0147_HR 06_RMGnetworks_YanLu_02_0177_HR 07_RMGnetworks_DavidCarbone_01_1342_HR
