Men’s executive portrait session with Sergio

We are thrilled to announce our new style Men’s executive portraits, exclusive to Dean Agar Photography. We scoured Australia to find our beautiful, authentic film light from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. She is from the 1940’s and still has the name plate for Paramount Studio on the back. The bulb was missing and the wiring was for US but that was fine, we just wanted the shell and she looks amazing. We were so happy when we located her in Melbourne and can only imagine the movies and TV shows that she may have been a part of from 1939 and onwards until she was retired.

When paired up with a nice bit of haze, a golden gel and our newly created background, we get the exact look that we were looking for. For this session you will see Sergio looking absolutely amazing and helping us to achieve exactly what we had envisaged when we conceived the idea a month ago. We hope that you love the images as much as we do. If you would like to enquire about an executive portrait session with us please email on karen@deanagar.com.au or call me on 0402 230 669.

Putting your best image forward with great headshots.

There is so much competition out there these days that you must have the best headshot possible. This applies to both actors and to corporate branding headshots. Your headshot must be up to date and it needs to show your personality and to be able to connect with your audience & ideal client straight away.

We take our sessions slowly and we perfect each pose before we move onto another. We pose you perfectly according to the style of session, your body shape and taking your personal concerns into account. We aim to achieve the most flattering pose possible in the very best lighting possible for you. Dean is always perfecting the pose for you and Karen is watching at all times for any issues like costume malfunctions, creases, hair problems etc so that your images are as close to perfect for you as possible, straight out of camera.

Portrait session with our make up artist, Monique

This week we photographed one of our wonderful makeup artists, Monique Torres from Zalique Makeup. We had been wanting to get Monique in front of the camera for the past 18 months but she was a bit too nervous. We managed to convince her to come in for a few portraits and we had an amazing session with her. Even though she actively avoided being on the other side of the camera, she was a natural. She has a grace and poise which made our job so easy and the results, amazing.

Now Monique knows first hand what a session is like as she is often asked by our clients. She had such a great time that she is planning a trip back with her husband for a romantic couples session.

If you are searching for the right Brisbane photographer to capture your personality and spirit then please get in touch. We would love to have the opportunity to give you amazing photographs that you never thought were possible. Monique may even end up being your makeup artist for your session.

Please call Karen on 0402 230 669 if you would like to discuss your own personally designed photography session.

Portrait photography for fellow photographer Rachel

Rachel 001

It is always a privilege to be asked by a fellow photographer to shoot them. Rachel drove from Coffs Harbour to come to us for her portrait photographs which makes us feel rather honored. Rachel will be using the image with the camera as her corporate identity image and the rest were for her and her boyfriend.

If you would like a session like this for yourself please contact Karen on 0402 230669 or by email.

Self portrait after a little break

Having had a busy first half to the year, in fact the best year we’ve ever had, we took a couple of weeks off and tomorrow we’re fully back into the swing of things, so to warm up a little, we did a few self portraits of myself.

The first few were taken on the last day of shoots, and the later ones are taken at the end of the break.

I wanted to capture myself tired and worn out, unshaven and then at the end of a break, still unshaven but clearly less tired and ready to get back to work.
