Star Trek – Actor Headshots
Okay, I have to admit that I have always been a Trekkie and yes a bit of geek too. So you can imagine what a thrill it was to photograph two “Stark Trek: Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” cast members. I first took Marina Sirtis’ new actor headshots and the she told one of her best friends, Michael Dorn to shoot with me. So I shot two “Star Trek” cast members a week apart. I got to ask them everything I wanted to know about the series and the films. Both shoot were very enjoyable.
They both were looking to update their headshots. Their manager wanted them to have a real headshot rather than a more glamorous studio looking headshot. He told me that he also wanted to keep her hair and make-up looking more simple and natural. When I was done with her hair and make-up I was very pleased and relieved to know that she loved it. She actually said that she had learned a couple of make-up tricks.
Marina Sirtis palyed the role of Counselor Deanna Troi. She also played Shereen, the Persian store keeper, in the Oscar winning film, Crash. She had an unforgettable line in that movie: “They think we’re Arab. When did Persian become Arab?”
Michael Dorn played Lieutenant Commander Worf. Who would have known that he was such a handsome man under all that Kinlgon make-Up?
