I have a very good friend who was a former photographer and a very, very creative one at that.  He used to have a nice studio in Toronto and did some work for me in my Computer days.

 

We got together for dinner earlier in the evening and I asked him to take my portrait, just to immortalize the beard.  I have to shave it this week due to images for Drivers License and Health Card.  No fancy lighting, we used what was available, which wasn't much. The backdrop is a bare wall.

 

Here are the results.  PP was done by me.

Peter, I'm sure he's preparing his beard for his role as Father Christmas 2020! 😁

Yes, amongst other "names" Father Christmas rings nicely! :lol:

 

Beard is officially gone now.  My career as a budding Mall Santa is over. 

Health Card and Drivers License images are done with.  I am now lighter some $230 or so.  Tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax tax .....  <_<

Could you elaborate a bit more?  Are you interested in Portrait Photography? 

Happy to advise, but this isn't a small topic.
