Have you ever wondered how it is to be in front of my lens?

100% of my clients are surprised on how fun and relaxed I keep their headshots session.

99.9% of all of my clients were nervous before their first time in front of the camera. All their worries and unease are gone once we start working together!

WANTED: NEW PROJECTS
As I am about to complete several larger projects, I am looking for your help to line up new projects. 

Word of Mouth is the best advertising: a creative’s work is only as good as the happiness of the client. 
As professional photographer and creative, nothing fills me with more joy than seeing my clients using their new headshots announcing a new role, or their business portraits for telling the world about leading a successful project for their company.

Do you have the eye for details? Corporate Portraits of Architect Paola di Romano.

As a commercial portrait photographer in Genève / Geneva I do help my clients show them in their profession. Their line of work is their passion, just as much as mine is envisioning how to set their personal brand in a portrait session. When architect Paola di Romano from PdR Architects in Vésenaz asked me to create her headshot, I immediately envisioned her at work.

Learning from the best. Or how to shoot great portraits of regular people.

Is he an actor? No. Is he a model? No.
Who is he then?

Answer: a regular guy shot by Patric Pop.

Ever since I have been working as a professional photographer, I am putting my focus is on creating the very best images for all of my clients. Originally, Yves was sent over by his CEO at HP to shoot some decent corporate headshots with me - I spare you the original image he had been using on his Linkedin profile – and out he walked with some absolute knockout images!

That is also the reason why I do keep reinvesting a lot into continuous training to learn from the industry's leaders.

I recently completed a training with Jerry Ghionis in Los Angeles.
If you are not familiar with Jerry, all you need to know is him being the most awarded photographer ever of the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), earning him the title of Grand Master.

Will I start now shooting weddings? I do enjoy working with people, but there is so much going on such a special day, not sure yet if that industry is for me.
But working with Jerry Ghionis made me look at my work differently.

Look at your client.

While in the past I had been focusing on the light, I started to look more at where the shades define the portraits. This process lead me to deepen my portrait work and to bring in more depth into my headshots. Depending on the facial features of each of my clients I do choose the lighting style and background color that suits them most.

Winning the Headshot of the Month competition.

With my improved way of working, I did win the international Headshot of the Month competition in September, with the shot of Yves that you see here.
In the final round of votes for winning the competition, my image did win by a 2/3 landslide against Emmy award winner Tommy Collier!

Not only is this a greatly appreciated feedback, now I am invited to New York City to work for 3 days with my mentor Peter Hurley, the master of Headshot photography over the past years.
He will also take my own headshot! The full « Shabang » as we Associates of the Headshot Crew say !

New beast on the block.

Did I mention that my main camera dropped to the floor and was totalled when I tripped over the tethering cable during a corporate headshot session at SITA? I was broken on that day.
And to my sheer happiness, my photodealer just me delivered the only a99ii they received in Genève / Geneva, the new flagship of Sony.

All I can say is: Holy Smokes! Welcome home, baby.
I am sure that this beauty and my artistic talent will allow me to push my professional work even further.

I am looking forward to use this beast on the corporate photoshoot for Headshots and Business Portraits next week, that I just got signed and booked this afternoon!

Stay tuned, my friends. The future looks bright at the end of the tunnel.
