Gabor Marton - Test Shots






Phantom Modelling Agency asked me to take headshots of a male model yesterday. I was not expecting much from the session. Then Gabor Marton turned up at my door, looking more like an adventurer than a model. He walked into the studio and told me that he is a photographer too and he only models part time. He pulls out an absolutely stunning model book and points to some superb photos and tells me that they were taken by his father! I felt like peeing in my pants at that point of time. What did I agree to do?

So I was determined not to be intimidated and put off. I did not approach this like a typical headshot-passport photo session and as Gabor saw the results on my lcd screen he warmed up too. We had a great time, shooting head shots, half-bodies and full-nudes!! We both loved the shots!! What was to be a 2 hour session max came up to 5 hours, with lunch, chatting and editing. Phantom did not get the head shot they wanted though... Hmmm....

Thanks for the votes of confidence. It really helps when you have something, in this case someone, who is interesting to shoot.

Eadwine: Betty was on leave. That is why I was trying to get you to assist. I did the shoot single-handed.
