Alina’s back and you might recognize her! She was in my portrait and headshot portfolio for almost a year after I photographed her as Ernestine for Chocolate Moose’s Theatre Company’s play. This time, she came as herself for some acting headshots. Whether I’m taking portraits or a person who has never been photographed before or taking acting headshots, I don’t assume that the person is familiar or comfortable with being photographed so I start from zero. But because I had photographed Alina before, I knew how comfortable and natural she was in front of the camera (despite the maybe intimidating-looking lighting setup), and we picked up right where we left off last time.
Read what Alina had to say about working with me: Getting photographed by Alex is a wonderful experience. He genuinely cares about getting your best shots and will gently direct and coach you between snaps to ensure you'll look your best, yes, but also look relaxed, natural, and like YOU. He is professional, prompt, and courteous. You'll feel at ease and guided through the whole process - never left in the dark about what's going on. […] On top of everything else, he is an interesting and sincere person. Thanks Alex! - Alina (Read her full testimonial at my client testimonials page!)
Aww, thanks Alina! It was nice working with you too!
I want to return the favour and talk about projects she’s currently working on. Alina has a fun upcoming show in the works called Stage M - it’ll be a show about the behind-the-scenes of the entertainment industry in Montreal. But if you want to see her before that, she’ll be co-producing and acting in a play in next year’s Festival St-Ambroise Fringe de Montréal. Lastly, I also want to thank tattoo artist Marie Mallouh for hair & make-up!
