Headshots on Goat Island: Mike Sweeney

When it comes to commercial headshots, I take a great amount of pride in capturing your best natural features, your strength, and your essence. My approach to photography is natural and relationship-oriented; I love to get to know my clients before putting them in front of the lens. I want to hear all about your story - both personal and professional - so I can tell it in light and color.

My goal is to create portrait images that say something meaningful about you. Are you an actor? A business professional? A model? I am confident in my ability to craft a series of images that truly say something about who you are and your goals in life. My portraits have been described as natural, vibrant, and versatile.

When Realtor® Mike Sweeney from Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty in Newport, Rhode Island was looking to expand his customer base and showcase himself in an more natural setting, we agreed that Goat Island was the perfect locale for the shoot. Mike began his career in the yachting industry managing the Goat Island Marina on the harbor in Newport.

Goat Island is a small island in Narragansett Bay and is part of the city of Newport, Rhode Island, U.S. The island is connected to the Easton's Point neighborhood via a causeway bridge. It is home to the Newport Harbor Light (1842), residences, restaurants, event spaces, and the stunning Gurney's Newport Resort & Marina.
