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.
Camera :: Canon 5d Mark III, 24-70mm f/2.8L, shot at 1/80, f/6.3 (ish), ISO 100
