Vintage Film Portrait Friday: Photographer Kiera Slye
This is the dynamic, vibrant and beautiful photographer, Kiera Slye! She is the lovely lady who took my current professional headshot. It was a lightly snowy afternoon in historic downtown Boston and the perfect time to geek out with my favorite film camera: the Mamiya RB67 aka “The Beast”.
I met her Grandfather while I was in college, as we attended a motivational / self help type course together. Many years later, he and I ran into each other and he wanted my opinion on his Granddaughter attending RIT (my Alma mater)… Well, that’s when I met Kiera. She and I have kept in touch over the years as she has built her business.
The trip to Boston was to spend several days with Kiera as our own DIY photographer’s workshop. I’m envious of the old locations she has right outside her frontdoor, like this awesome cobblestone alley.
She is a portrait photographer and I’m a wedding photographer, so we traded tips of the trade. She is helping me fine tune my first year baby plan and I helped her up her game using off camera flash. More about that later, as a tutorial for you!
