Canon 50-1000mm lens
A few years ago I had to opportunity to work with Squire Fridell, an American actor turned full time Winemaker (Great Syrah by the way!... - Glenlyon Winery).
Squire is very well known (at least in the middle of the country) for his portrayal of The Toyotaman in over three thousand American TV commercials for The Toyota Motor Corporation. Between 1984 and 1991, he served as the official "Ronald McDonald" clown character in American TV commercials for the McDonald's Corporation chain of fast-food restaurants, and even played the McDonald character in Mac and Me. From the 1970s until the mid-1990s, Fridell also had supporting character roles in a number of popular TV series, such as Rosetti and Ryan, M*A*S*H, Newhart, Ironside and Adam-12.
In the early 2000's, I began working with Squire on various projects to help promote his wine business. I transformed (re-designed from the ground up) his website, twice over a period of seven years, to what it is today (http://www.glenlyonwinery.com) and captured most of the photos of him, his wife Suzy and various pictures on his website to finally shooting a new series of head-shots for the latest release of his book "Acting in Television Commercials for Fun and Profit" (Here's the link on Amazon.com).
As his book so eloquently states: "...if you want to become an actor, you will need some quality head-shots at some point…" Sessions start at $500 and go up from there depending on location(s), number of outfits and other details I'll be glad to discuss with you. If you're based in the NY metropolitan area and are looking for a great head-shot, please contact me.
