thomas is a versatile artist who told me that he needed some actor's headshots for casting calls. he had an interesting look that wasn't quite dramatic but he could only be featured in tv roles or movies. I met him when he was working on his website but I didn’t know he was interested in acting. I think that as an artist you are only limited to what you think you can do. the power is within, you can express it through playing music, playing a character or expressing it through choreography or even designing.
we set up a date for the shoot and he brought a full wardrobe assortment for different looks. though we had worked together before, it was only remotely, so I was meeting him in real life for the first time when he walked into the studio. I had always thought that he was a dead serious kind of guy you couldn't get a laugh out of. he's smaller than I thought but actors come in all sizes. after introductions, a little conversation to ease him up, it was light, camera, action. as I was taking more pictures, he was feeling relaxed enough to strike different poses from dramatic to formal, to even comical. that allowed us to cover enough looks for different characters. though people usually think of acting with regard to the big screen, there's a growing demand of talent for tv and advertising. I thought he was well qualified to play in both. we took s over 100 pictures out of which he selected 12. I touched them up in photoshop and delivered to his satisfaction.
