Meeting a Master Coach

When we got an urgent email requesting headshots - the same day! - we had no idea who we’d be working with. Much to our surprise, it turned out to be Sean Smith, the premier breakthrough coach, a master at helping people to achieve their full potential. It seems Sean needed the images for a book he’s about to have published (way to go Sean!)

For most of the shots, we chose a plain white background (also known as ‘high key’), thereby allowing him the most flexibility for future use…whether on the back of a hard cover book jacket, a press release, or his business cards or Web site.

For a little fun and variety, we chose to shoot the last one outside, in the soft evening light.

Afterwards, Sean’s family (Cybil, McKenna and Ecksley) came over and helped to sort through the raw files, selecting 6 for final polishing and use. Meeting Sean and his family was a real treat. They were so friendly and upbeat; living, breathing examples of the positive principles Sean teaches in his classes. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them, and look forward to a future opportunity to shoot the entire family together.

Best of luck with your new book Sean! We’re certain we’ll see it at the top of the Best Seller’s list here very soon! - Peggy and Steve
