Louisville actor John Wells and I have worked on various projects through out the years now, but never before have we worked on the personal branding for his acting career. Last November he reached out to me in need of something different, something more him. To be specific, he was looking to add a refined layer of theatrical headshots to his acting portfolio. However, during our discussions we decided to add portraits to further expand the content we would create. You see, John is a passionate believer in needing portraits as an actor, a cornerstone of branding which sometimes gets overlooked. With personal branding, sometimes a headshot is needed while other times a portrait is needed, especially in the online or social media world. The session day came and we quickly captured what we needed and within days John had started promoting the images online, they were well received! Another job, another collaboration of ideas and another story of success!
"Gary is not only a consummate professional, but a joy to work with. I frequently collaborate with him for creative and professional endeavors, because he never fails to create images that are striking, characterful, and uniquely and effectively "me." His work reflects the soul of the moment, and connects and resonates to evoke a true emotional response." - John Wells reflecting on the personal branding experience.
A personal journal about any given day in my photography career where I will write about anything from portraits and headshots to sharing my educational experiences. Thank you for taking the time to stop by, it's my pleasure to share my stories with you!
