  1. Headshots

    Date 23 May 2017
    I always love taking headshots! My headshot section is actually hidden on my site though because that’s not the primary photography I do. Most headshots are done in studio, whereas I shoot headshots on location in natural light. Feel free to check out more headshots at www.karanixon.com/headshots! I had the pleasure…
