I met Maria in her office on 4th Street near downtown St. Petersburg for what I aim to be a "quick and painless" headshot. My goal is to be in and out in less than 30 minutes so that making the headshot photograph does not take up much of the client's time. On this occasion it went about as smoothly as it possibly could go because Maria was very well prepared and a great model for her headshot!
The headshot, or rather upper body headshot, was made right in her office using a blank wall as she wanted a plain background from which her graphic designer could easily manipulate the image to be used in various PR materials and on her business website. This final image was delivered to Maria less than 12 hours after the shoot.
