As I was looking in the archives for shots of live theater production photos I kept stumbling across portraits that I love.

This is one of Afradet. I found her eyes to be amazing. I found her when an art director cast her to play a part in an campaign we did for the Austin Chamber of Commerce. Afradet was just finished with college and launching her career. We did a bunch of photos together after the Chamber project but we've since lost touch in the mad swirl of life...I'd love to photograph her one more time.

  1. You missed your calling, you should have been a portrait photographer :) Just kidding. :) Great B&W shot. The lighting, her eyes, the hair, it all works. I see why you like it so much. Maybe you'll meet again.

  2. Thank you, Kirk, for showing this. Why don't you make a book of these portraits? I am sure plenty of your readers would be very happy to have one.

  3. I agree with Roger, a beautiful lady and the lighting and pose accentuate her beauty.

  4. You might have to drop by New York to see her on your way to Iceland.

  5. Do you take many of these out of hours headshots any more?
    They seem to be ones that you revisit regularly. Is the cache of these all early/mid era Tuck? Is late-mid era Tuck all theatre shows and skyscrapers?

    What I love most about these portraits you do is the ease at which the sitter clearly feels.

  6. Hi Mark,

    I still do these portraits as often as I have the opportunity to. This year has been a bust for portraits because I'm handling so much family business, etc. But the image at the top is fairly recent. I consider anything done after 2008 to be "Late Kirk" so by that standard we're doing fine.

  7. Cool!
    Glad to hear they're still in the pipeline, as much because it's clear from the way you write about the sessions and the wonderful results that it's an area of photography where your heart clearly lies.

    I studiously avoided using the term Late Tuck, in the expectation that that era is still to come...

  8. Stunning portrait. Draws the viewer in. The more you look, the more you see and want to look. Great image.
