Professional Pianist Max – South Jersey Headshots

Max is a professional pianist and organist, and he also happens to be a terrific guy.  He’s currently finishing up his Master’s in Conducting at Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ, and he is the music director of Grace Church in Haddonfield, NJ.  He reached out to us a few weeks back for some headshots, something he admits he had been putting off.  Like most of our clients, he mentioned being a bit nervous about being photographed, but I assured him that we would have him looking great and feeling comfortable.  He laughed and mentioned that he would be happy to leave the worries to me!

I am actually a graduate of Rowan University myself, and so I thought it would be really cool to photograph Max & chat with him a bit about college.  My room mate throughout most of my time at Rowan was a music performance major, and so I definitely had stuff to talk about with him!

Max was looking for two images… one with a more formal look, and the other with a more casual look.  He needed one them for both online profiles and concert programs as well as smaller newsletters.  It was important to him that they conveyed warmth and openness.  As a young musician who teaches some courses at Rowan, Max wanted his more casual look to show him as approachable.  The formal image would have him in his conducting outfit, affectionately known as the “penguin suit.”  This was just a downright cool session, and Max brought a really great personality to it.  It was easy to make him look welcoming and approachable, because this really did represent his personality.

The session went terrifically, and we got Max some great shots!  Like usual, they garnered quite a bit of positive praise from his friends and family!  His social media profile was blowing up with “likes” and good comments just like our friend Terrence’s headshots from a few weeks ago!  Here’s some of the images from our session along with a handful of outtakes and a glimpse at some of what his friends had to say!
