Reid Senior Portraits. Class of 2019. Bedford High School.
Reid is a senior at Bedford High School in Temperance, MI. He will be graduating this spring and entering a new stage of life. Reid was laid back, and happy to go with the flow. I had to embarrass him a few times, in front of his mom, to make him smile, but he was naturally great in front of the camera. His style was trendy but low-key. Reid was great at faking comfort despite the chilly temperatures.
Working with young men, seems to be a niche that many senior photographers do not dig into. There is a thriving market for photographers to be a brand who offer female seniors, hair, makeup and more of a modeling experience (also a lot of photoshop). I really do admire these senior photographers’ work. For my own brand though, I have decided to strive for a natural look that accurately represents each teen’s personality.
I really enjoy working with guys because they come as they are. They don’t have quite as many concerns about wearing the magazine-worthy outfit that some celebrity said they should. I have worked with several who knew how to dress. They looked put together, and they chose pieces that showed off their own style and made them feel comfortable. I have also worked with several young men who struggled to pick more than one look. I enjoy being able to learn a little bit about each, and coach them in their wardrobe choices when needed.
Any young man is welcome: sports player, musician, artist, gamer, hunter, cook, actor, tekkie, gear head, skater… whatever they might be into. I want to incorporate that into their session and highlight who they are.
