Hilary Elizondo – Actors Headshots – Ben Briones Studios

Headshots are the entryway to landing acting job so getting great photos is important to you if acting is the end goal as a career. I had the opportunity to photograph Hillary at my home studio in McAllen, Texas. Hilary was getting read to move to California to pursue her acting career and she needed a few headshots to give out to agents. We did a 3 outfit head shot session with black background so she could be the center of attention. Here are my favorite shots from this professional head shot photo session. 2019-03-24_00092019-03-24_00102019-03-24_00112019-03-24_00122019-03-24_00132019-03-24_0014

Cassie Sanchez – Head Shots – Edinburg, Texas

Beauty head shots are another sector of professional heads that I enjoy doing as well. A while back I shot these beautiful beauty head shots for Ms. Cassie on the University of Texas-Pan American campus. We chose to do these outside of the studio because she wanted that natural light look and have a variety of backdrops. Here are my favorite shots from this head shot session! 2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-4_pp_web2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-15_pp_web2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-30_pp_web2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-33_pp_web2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-41_pp_web2011-06-12_cassie sanchez head shots_bbp-49_pp_web

Flashpoint eVOLV 200 – Studio Head Shot Test – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

A few months ago I tested the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 outdoor with these two cool kids and I loved how the photos came out. I have been recently looking for a smaller powerful light for my photography and the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 / Godox AD200 is a competitor for my money. Yes, I am probably like a billion years late with these lights but who cares.

Anyways, I was able to gather these guys again for another photo shoot but this time in my studio for head shots. I used a very small octabox, I believe it was a 18inch, and a YONGNUO YN560 for background light. To kill some shadows we used a small reflector under their face. Here are some of my favorite shots from the photo session testing out the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 in my studio. I am really, really thinking of getting this light but we will see. 2018-09-15_00012018-09-15_00032018-09-15_00022018-09-15_00042018-09-15_00072018-09-15_00052018-09-15_0006

Cacheaux Cavazos Newton LLP – Attorney Head Shots – McAllen, Texas

I recently had the opportunity to take professional head shots for Cacheaux Cavazos Newton LLP, a law firm located in McAllen, Texas. My client Marissa Rodriguez, who is also one of the partners at the law firm booked us. They allowed us to use one of their boardroom to setup, which was very kind of them. I did two looks for them but today you will only be seeing one. I chose this beautiful blue because I thought it went with their branding and it would look professional and bold. Here are some of my favorite takes from this head shot session. 2018-11-14_00052018-11-14_00062018-11-14_00072018-11-14_00082018-11-14_00092018-11-14_00102018-11-14_00112018-11-14_00122018-11-14_00132018-11-14_00142018-11-14_0015

Boys and Girls Club of Pharr – Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

The Boys and Girls Club is near and dear to my heart. I volunteered and briefly worked at the Edinburg, Texas Boys and Girls Club before moving to Austin to attend The University of Texas at Austin. I was under the leadership of Sabrina Walker-Hernandez and Freddy Mata (featured here). I work a lot with the Boys and Girls Club of Edinburg but not afraid to assist and help other clubs around the Rio Grande Valley.

When I got the call that the Boys and Girls Club of Pharr was in need of professional head shots and some group photos I immediately did my best to provide them a fair price get the ball rolling on getting signed. Well, lo and behold here are the results of their leadership team head shots. 03.28.18_PRINT_Boys and Girls Pharr_BBS-030_pp_WEB03.28.18_PRINT_Boys and Girls Pharr_BBS-108_pp_pp_WEB

Brianna Garces – Miss Borderfest 2018 – Ben Briones Studios

Last night we photographed Brianna Garces, the newly elected Miss Borderfest 2018. Brianna and her family attend the same church my girlfriend and I go to. So we already knew her but we only found out she won Miss Borderfest 2018 this past weekend when they made the announcement at the festival.

Brianna reached out to me because she needed some head shots for a possible modeling job with Betsey Johnson, who I here will be visiting the valley soon. Brianna models for Missy’s Modeling Studio located in McAllen, Texas. She’s also made an appearance on my blog on the V-Lashes Launch Party blog feature.

Margie Villalobos – Attorney Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

Last week we had a prominent immigration attorney stop by the studio for new head shots and we had a very pleasant conversation!  Margie Villalobos is an immigration lawyer who’s been practicing for 25 plus years as a partner in Villalobos & Villalobos  in McAllen, Texas.

I enjoyed photographing Mrs. Villalobos because I found out we were both alumni of The University of Texas at Austin, where she received her law degree. We talked about the possibilities of maybe one day I becoming a lawyer. She also shared her passion about the work she does and how important it is to her. I think the bond we had made for great photos!

I love how the photos came out and these are some of my favorite shots!
