Recently, a campaign was shot for The Brisbane Arcade to be featured in their annual publication about designers and creators right inside the famous arcade. The story featured several designers including Brad Webb from Darb Bridal and Robert White Jewellers as well as many more talented creatives.
Recently I photographed the wonderful Erin Connor who has just completed the road tour of the new film Rise (http://www.risemovie.com.au) where she played Julie Nile. You can check out more from Erin at her StarNow page here - http://www.starnow.com.au/erinconnor4
I recently collaborated with Tahlia Jade to create some fashion inspired portraits to play around with a new lighting toy that I bought - RoundFlash Ring Flash Adapter which I purchased from B+H Photo. It's basically a speed light mounted ring flash adapter, but actually works compared to the other smaller more junky ones such as the Ray Flash or Orbis.
But onto the photography side of things, here some of the images that we captured using just this ring flash, and they were all shot using the Nikon D3s + Nikkor 35mm f1.4G which I found to be the best lens to use to get that "fashion ring flash" sort of look, anything wider would also work as well, but anything tighter than 35mm and you lose that nice big ring catch light that you see in Tahlia's eyes.
Annikki recently stepped in front of my camera to have some new headshots taken for her online acting profiles and prospective agents now that she is finishing up her acting course.
We had a great time shooting these natural light headshots in West End at my favourite location and we really played around with some different types of images including some wider angled portraits to include more of the environment.
Julius was a fellow student of mine back in high school days and we had lost touch since that time until recently when Julius out of chance found my work online in his search for a new headshot photographer. The stars aligned and we had a fantastic shoot with some of the most amazing light Ive ever shot headshots in. Here is a selection of both Julius's finished images as well as my favourites from the shoot, enjoy.
I chose these images because I feel that they are more than just headshots, some of which could just as easily be images used in a fashion campaign.
I love shooting headshots in Sydney, and recently I was in Sydney for the YouTube Fan Fest featuring some of the biggest international names on YouTube. One such person is Dr. Derek Muller from the hit YouTube science channel Veritasium.
Whilst chatting with Derek, I soon discovered that he had never had a professional headshot or portrait taken before. So I organised a headshot session while we were both in Sydney to get him out of any future trouble!
This is Just a little teaser from our headshot session at The University of Sydney, and we managed to get some great new headshots all over the place. We eventually ended up in the School Of Physics in a teaching lab where I created some headshots that really summed up where Derek is professionally at the moment, tying together science and education to create a confident and energetic portrait!
These a few examples of corporate photography that I did recently for Beenleigh Harcourts Real Estate Agents.
Where to begin with Tamara, wow! This amazingly talented Brisbane based actress has recently completed her Advanced Diploma of Film, Television and Theatre Acting at The Actors Workshop here in Brisbane and is out to make her name in the world of film. Tamara made the decision to get new headshots soon after graduating knowing that she would need the best possible headshots to get started with an agency and to get her face out there. Tamara made a great decision and booked a Folio Package with me which allowed her enough time during her shoot to try a number of different looks and make the most of her time with me to give her all the options she needed. Here's what Tamara had to say about her experience -
I get asked a lot about the retouching of my headshots and I also get asked if people can have the RAW or unedited photos from a shoot. I wanted to write this little post to provide a little more information as to why I don't give out unedited images and what goes into making a unique Tyler Alberti headshot.
First and for most consider this; Would an architect deliver unfinished house plans to a builder and say here you go, enjoy? Or would a graphic designer deliver artwork to a printer without any of the text/content? No, the same thing applies to photography, and my headshots have a unique look and feel to them that I am happy to put my name on.
So take a look at my sample images below, on the left you can see my straight out of camera image or RAW file and on the right you can see my finished and retouched image that I would deliver to the client. I won't go into how I do my retouching but the image below was worked on in photoshop for about 15 minutes and every single image that my clients choose as part of their package will get this same retouching applied!
I recently met Asher whilst assisting on a photo shoot for South Bank Corporation, and we got chatting about updating her headshots. Asher is a QUT graduate of a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance. Not only did Asher want some new headshots for extra and modelling work, she also wanted some images that showed her physique rather than your typical headshot. Here are some of her final images which turned out fantastic!
"Having my headshots done by him was such a positive experience and I would definitely do it again and recommend him to others. He gave brilliant direction and artistic suggestions as well as incorporating some of my own."
