About Me

2013-2014 Austin Fashion Week Photographer

A new year is bringing new things to BTL. In 2015, BTL will be starting up new branches to the business including Movie and Film Photo Production & Portfolio Building and training sessions for up and coming models as well as Weddings and Precious Moment Events Photography such as; Senior portraits and graduations and maternity. Message for details and prices.

Lot of photo projects are lining up as well such as: calendar shoots, beach shoots, swimwear shoots, poster shoots, character shoots, magazine shoots and more!

BTL currently only offers TFP on a case by case basis. Please message for rates.

I no longer offer TFP for head shots. My current rates are $85 per head shot, fully edited, and re-touched or the headshot special of $125 for 10 fully edited and retouched headshots with 5 different looks.

TFP is still available for regular modeling shoots. Message to inquire.

Each shoot that you pay for will come with:
- BTL MUA/Hair
- 2-3 hours of shooting
- No concept limit
- 10-15 fully edited photos from each set (I upload to Dropbox, but can send a CD if requested)

If you would like an un-watermarked photo there will be an additional charge, inquire for price.

Areas of BTL:
- Head Shots
- Weddings
- Graduations
- Senior Portraits & Packages
- Events/Sports
-Portfolio Building
-Movie and Film
-Runway and modeling
-Precious Moments/Maternity etc..
*Message with questions, and rate inquires, excluding head shots.

I am a high fashion, glamour, and editorial photographer, but I specialize in head shots, and commercial print. I am also an official photographer for Austin Fashion Week. I will also do lingerie, and pinup if the concept is right. I am also venturing into contour mansion, and boudoir style shoots.

Behind the Lights Photography is open to working with a variety of models.

If you are looking to update your portfolio, or need some new up close shots. I can deliver you amazing head shots, whether it's for your business card, yearbook, or your senior portrait. BTL can give you exceptional service, and product. You will be guaranteed those amazing head shots you are looking for!

I meet with my models at a public location before a shoot so we can go over ideas, and concepts. I like to plan the shoot ahead of time so come shooting day we can just start right in. After the meeting we will then talk about a date to shoot.

I am always looking for models from beginner level to experienced to help build a portfolio. I offer portfolio building sessions, advice, and shoots. If you need a new portfolio, or just want to update those old photos, send me a message, and I will get back to you with rates, and more information.

You will have your images within 2 weeks. I stand by this, because I know how much a model wants to see the final result.

I have an assistant who works along side of me at shoots. She's there to give you direction, so you can get the perfect shot, and she specializes in re-creating shots that inspire you, which allows me to focus on all other aspects needed to make "the shot". She does light hair, and make-up work, so depending on what you need she may be able to assist.

*I highly encourage escorts for female models.

**Behind The Lights will not shoot models under the age of 18 due to legal concerns.

***I have employed an experienced make-up artist as well to be a part of the process, her name is Alli Marrie, and can be found on Facebook. If you have a TFP shoot with me you don't have to use them, but it's highly recommended. If your looking for industry standard images to up the quality of your portfolio. There is a fee that goes along with this option.

"Working with Shaun was great. I really felt he was focused, and giving me 100% of his effort. I felt a great connection with him, and I fed off of that, and therefore ended up with some really great shots! I highly recommend him!"

Christine Fontana

"Shooting with Shaun from Behind The Lights Photography was a blast. He's very laid-back, but knows what he's doing. He has a lot of great ideas, but he's also open-minded, and up for pretty much any suggestions. Our shoot went great, and the photos came out epic. If he hadn't moved so ridiculously far away, I would've shot with him a lot more. To any models, newbies or pros, looking for a great shoot, Behind The Lights Photography = flawless victory!"
