The New Me :-)

January 25, 2010

Well, not really a new me, but some new business photos of me. And long overdue, too — the photo I’ve been using on my web sites and blogs (and as my social media avatar) is at least 5-6 years old now, and I just don’t look that young anymore. I haven’t seen all of the photos we took on Saturday, but of the ones I have seen, these are my favorites:


How’d I do?

Strange that both are serious poses. There are some good smiley shots, too, but I just like these more.

The photog is a guy I’ve known from the Tri-Cities group on Flickr. I posted a thread about wanting to get some new portraits done, and chose him from the people who replied. He’s not really even in business for himself yet, but has a little studio down in his basement at home, and all turned out well. Now Cari’s thinking about having him do new portraits for her, too.

    I like the intensity of the one on the left! Intriguing and a little scary šŸ˜€

    Phil – this guy did it for free, too. šŸ™‚ Well, I made a small donation to charity event he’s involved with. But yeah, would’ve been great to have you shooting some pix.

    David – thx. There’s one that’s even more serious and frightening. I don’t dare publish it.

    I’ve been meaning to get some professional business shots done as I look different from my current avatar photos as well. Maybe this will be a motivator.

    I’ve could have done all sorts of stuff to either funk-afy, or whatever. But the basics is what most folks want in a head shot.

    I’ve got an office shoot on Saturday- oh goodness.
