I love shooting theatrical headshots; as actors, my subjects tend to be full of energy and personality and the shoots are rarely boring. Julia was no exception. Every frame was a different expression – despite her insistence that she hadn’t moved – and her enthusiasm was infectious. With a subject like her, the shoot is easy; it’s the final image selection that’s difficult.
This image was shot with what has become one of my favorite portrait lenses, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens. Light weight, fast and quiet focus, and crazy sharp.
Since moving to Los Angeles in 2013, Julia’s been busy pursuing her acting career. You can find a complete list of Julia’s acting projects on IMDB.
