My brother Jonathan was kind enough to help out with my Special Occasion video project by stepping in as the "single guy with dog" role. As he explains in the video, these portraits of him out walking with Dolce (one of my grandma's dogs, whom my brother frequently dog-sits) were meant to be used for online dating profile photos. I really enjoy taking portraits of people for this purpose, to help show them feeling relaxed and looking their best to make a great impression to potential dates. Professional lifestyle portraits are a serious upgrade from the bathroom selfies that haunt the pixels of Tinder and the like. Here are a few shots pulled from our video shoot.
