Who's in the Crew? - Spotlight on Ross McIntire
I grew up near San Francisco in Menlo Park, CA and I currently live in Los Angeles, CA.
As a kid, I spent many years skateboarding and filming skate videos. I always owned a camera of some kind but didn’t get serious about photography until 2018.
I bought Perfecting the Headshot in September of 2018 and joined the Headshot Crew on 11/23/2018. I’ve never had a photography studio and have always shot at home/on location. Having my own studio is absolutely a goal and will be a major milestone. I shoot the triangle set up and men’s lighting setup with LED panels. Since my studio is at home, I try to minimize the amount of gear I own.
Aside from headshots, I like to photograph athletes and musicians. With my music background and having been a yoga teacher for years, I bring expertise to the table when shooting this type of photography. I actually used to run workshops on how to do handstands!
I’ve spent my life working as a drummer playing jazz, funk, and almost everything else. I studied music in New Orleans and have toured the US and Europe extensively in various bands. I moved to Oakland and started a funk band which you can see me playing with here:
