I’ve known Brian for at least 8 years. Brian and I met through a mutual friend, and we all had a love of photography. Brian worked with me and a group of photographers on a Help Portrait Seattle event back in 2009, and we’ve been friends since. Brian is one of the most generous, kind people I’ve met in Seattle.

Brian reached out to me just a few days ago; he was starting a new job as Chief Marketing Officer for a start up and he needed a new headshot for a press release.

We agreed to met at a spot, convenient to him, but filled with a variety of potential backgrounds. I knew we would get that one headshot he needed, but I always want to capture more options.

One of the things I love to do along the way in these sessions is grab a couple of iPhone shots. With the fancy new iPhone 8 Plus and portrait mode, it’s honestly quite a pleasing result. So in this last frame I did just that.

For the Photographers reading

Everything was captured with the Fujifilm X-T2 with the 35m f/1.4 or 56mm f/1.2, OR the iPhone 8 Plus, because why not, using available light. The clouds were moody that day. 😉
