Last few months have been busy. Its that time of the year again when 3rd year drama and musical theatre students need to get their head shots done. For many of them it’s the first time they have ever sat in front of a camera! So many things for them to think about, hair, make up, expression, do I smile do I look moody….
For me, there’s only one important thing. The eyes! Get them to say everything! It’s not easy to do but it makes the portrait work. If the eyes are dead, all the hard work with make up and hair will be wasted.
I shot student actress Jessica Bennett in natural light with just a reflector to accentuate her eyes, no need for anything else.
Another client of M.A.D is making waves in the industry; Tillie Murray has just been cast as Genevieve in Andrew Keatley’s exciting thriller ‘Alligators’ at The Hampstead Theatre this summer. Tillie comes to this role having already played Marta in the UK Tour of ‘The Sound of Music’. We had great fun working with Tillie to get a fantastic range of striking natural light shots.
