Warrior Portrait of Author Amy E. Herman
Warrior Portrait: Amy is the renowned author of the bestseller Visual Intelligence. When she asked me to shoot the author photo for her upcoming 2nd book, TED talk , lectures etc, I was thrilled. Every book touring author needs a solid series of photos in a few looks to tailor it to her audience.
In order to show off Amy’s gorgeous smile, we stuck with a clean beauty approach. Because of painterly light we used, her complexion shone through. Amy is a force of nature. As I got to know her I realized this is true because in addition to her abilities and accomplishments, I learned she has overcome things I couldn’t even dream of avoiding, Noteably, breast cancer for one. Amy is a breast cancer warrior and survivor, having had it and BEAT IT several times; It is important to realize that Amy never let the disease slow her down. Even in the hospital she was strategizing how to get out and back to her field which she loves so passionately.
Do yourself and pick up her book. Hollywood may or may not be turning it into a… no, I’ve said too much.
