Mark Vahrmeyer needed headshots for his Brighton Psychotherapy practice website. We covered a range of expressions, many of them showing him as friendly and approachable which is generally considered a good thing for a therapist.
But this is the shot I liked the most. He's a serious man who thinks profoundly about his work.
By cropping everything away, the emphasis of the shot is his eyes. We are left with an impression of intelligence, thoughtfulness and focus. It's a powerful and unusual therapists headshot.
