Michele Wilson's headshots:
Got them! Thank you so very much! We are so pleased with they way they turned out – nice work!
Have a great day!
First off, let me thank you again for a wonderful shoot and a wonderful set of shots, I am so proud of them. Second, let me apologize for taking so long to get these back to you, things have been hectic. Please let me know when they are ready to go and I will come back by your place and pick them up, and bring the additional money I owe you. Thanks again!
PS- I saw the front of your website, thank you so much for that!!
I really enjoyed your interview with studiolighting.net. It was so refreshing to hear someone talk about slowing down rather than speeding up.
Love your work and appreciate your words.

Just a quick note I thought you would enjoy.
I had a casting director comment on how much I looked like my Headshot! She also enjoyed the landscape angle that the pic was taken on.
Thanks, I hope all is well with you.
Just listened to your Studiolighting.net podcast interview, and enjoyed it very much, as I did my visit to your website.
I have to say, having listened to most of the interviews by Bill and Ed on studiolighting.net, yours is among the few in which the photographer seemed to be having any fun being a photographer. Perhaps your attitude is born of the confidence of technical mastery and long experience; in any case, there is a grim careerism evident in many interviews with photographers that was joyfully lacking in your interview. Bravo to you, sir.
Photo courses help people in business
By Ken Castle, Special Advertising Sections Writer LA Times
Roman Salicki, a noted Los Angeles studio lensman who specializes in celebrity and fashion photography, teaches courses in beginning digital photography at the Westside Extension of West Los Angeles College. His typical student arrives with a new digital camera, a thick and sometimes confusing instruction manual, and a lot of questions about how to capture and store an image. Salicki divides his instruction into two sections: mastering the camera and manipulating the digital files.
“Everything is hands-on, with practical applications instead of theory and technicalities,” he said.
Salicki, who has photographed such stars as Nicolette Sheridan (“Desperate Housewives”), Michael Caine, Pierce Brosnan and just about every “Baywatch” babe on the long-running TV series, said digital has completely streamlined his business.
“The turnaround time is amazing,” he said. “Clients can come in for a six-hour shoot, enjoy a glass of wine while I do some touch-up and burn the images on a CD, and then walk out with a complete portfolio.”
Introductory digital photo courses are popular, Salicki said, because even small cameras can have menus, settings and other adjustments that are more complex than analog film cameras.
“I advise students to read the manual thoroughly before they pick up the camera,” he said. “If you pull it out of the box and start trying to take pictures right away, you will easily get frustrated.”
No camera? No worries. Salicki also covers how to shop for and buy a digital camera. For details on his courses, contact Salicki at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for an informative and enjoyable listening experience, and continued success to you.
What a great experience Suzanne & I had having you do our headshots. It was truly one of the highpoints of our LA visit.
Please feel free to crop and retouch both of our headshots as you see fit as both of us have the greatest confidence in your judgement in showing us as we are naturally.
Thanks, Jeff & Suzanne

This is a great episode. I love that Roman specifically talked about sizes and distances of his light modifiers. Painted the picture nicely. Well done.
Also HUGE credit to him to be as passionate about his craft after all these years, with all the changes he's seen.You can really hear it in his voice.
It's not every day you get the chance to discuss photography and lighting with someone who's seen as much as our latest guest, Roman Salicki. Roman is a head shot photographer from LA and he agreed to chat with us about his 20 plus years in the commercial photography industry. Roman shares some great stories about the famous photographers he has been privileged to study under as well as some of the things he's learned.
