Taking my head shot photography to another level

Lately, I have more and more people asking me take head shots for their website, social media, or sometimes even printed marketing materials.

So I decided to do a little research and educate myself on various headshot styles. This is one of my favorites. It uses something called clamshell lighting.

Here's a photo I took of Sharon and one she took of me, while we were practicing.


And this is one of my good friend the Rev. Kim Jackson that I took the next day.


I have a couple more head shot sessions scheduled over the next couple of weeks. If you'd like to schedule a session for you and maybe even your coworkers, give us a call 404 298 6263 or shoot us an email at cindy@cbrownphoto.com.

Atlanta Head Shot Photographer

Cindy Brown

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
