Adaptive Path Head Shot Outtakes

I spent Tuesday taking head shots for the folks at Adaptive Path. These are the portraits that won’t likely make the cut for professional head shots, but I love them nonetheless:

    Human beings are just beautiful, aren’t they?
    Lovely shots :)

  • Stacey Says:

    I love these. It’s a shame, really, that photos like these are not generally accepted as headshots, so much better than the more sterile stuff that gets used. These just have so much life and personality.

  • jenne Says:

    Wow, Roland Smart, whoever you are. That look is almost…indecent.

  • Kizz Says:

    I love portraits. I love these portraits. I think I am in love with Sebastian now.

    Thank you.

  • misha Says:

    damn, competition – i totally have a thing for Roland too – does he want to move to some east coast mountains… or hey i will be in san fran for 10 days quite soon – he be single?
    Yes. They call me Shameless.

  • Trish Smith Says:

    These are some great pics – I think I want to take Bryan Mason home (I’m sure Bunker Hubby wouldn’t mind in the least).

  • emdot Says:

    man. maggie — you captured them so brilliantly. these are gorgeous and human and fun and just perfect.

  • Dr. S Says:

    I do love that I feel as though I know something important about every one of these people. Nice work, Maggie.

  • shel Says:

    when i grow up, i want to be as naturally gorgeous as gina cresenti.

  • Robin Says:

    I have a wee crush on Sebastian.

  • Ryan Says:

    Gina C…wow.

  • shawna Says:

    I kind of want to be the filling in a Sebastian and Roland sandwich.

  • Sara Says:

    I love these! Too bad they won’t be the ones used unless, of course, the chosen ones are even more fantastic.

    I see I’m late to the fight over Roland…

    dude. these are absolutely fabulous.

  • Berit Jacobson Says:

    woah, I know sarah nelson but haven’t seen her for years! we grew up in the same small Ohio town and her mom taught me to play the flute. hi from seattle sarah, nice to “see” you!

  • Victoria Says:

    It’s funny, I was looking over these photos thinking “Damn, I wish she’d take my picture, these people all look so awesome and beautiful and hot” And then I realized if I saw a picture of myself I’d probably only see the flaws and I wondered if these folks might do the same. I sure hope they can look at these pictures and see how beautiful they are, cuz they are!

  • Kelly Says:

    Dayum, Roland.

  • Kim Says:

    Your photos are beautiful but here are my absolute favorites:


    Isn’t it fun to take pictures up close?

  • Tami in NY Says:

    Oh that is funny, I come to make a comment thinking that I’m going to be original but of course others see the same thing I do….I want to marry Sebastian.

  • Brooke Says:

    Clearly, I’m going about dating all wrong. The key is to have a great photographer take excellent pictures of me and put them on her blog.

    Also, Roland’s gorgeous! Doubt he’d want to move to London though… ^_^

  • weremonkey Says:

    OMG. Beautiful Roland is looking like Pan incarnate.

  • misha Says:

    ladies, puhleaze lay off my Roland. Sniff, Sniff no more San Fran for me….bad things happened and they prevent good things from happening. I need him now more than ever.

  • sarah Says:

    roland is my Brother-in-law. Any ladies who want dirt on him (or how I landed his MUCH hotter brother), just lemme know ;)

  • Dorothy Stahlnecker Says:

    Maggie, hop over to grammology.com and see my bald head in flicker…I like the no bad hair day so much I’m not sure I’ll ever let my hair grow back. (only kidding) however, it’s not nearly as bad as I thought…

    My best,
    Dorothy from grammology

    Gina is beautiful!

    Sebastian! Rawr.

  • Jill(not Bill) Says:

    Man, those shots are absolutely dripping with character. They’re almost three dimensional. Beautiful, beautiful shots, Maggie.

  • Teresa Brazen Says:

    Maggie! I feel totally left out! Where’s my out shot?! You cannot possibly tell me that all of my pictures are “in” takes…
