    get more face in these shots as well as some rule of thirds if they could be environmental portraits. I like the last two the best because they have more face in them.

    I would have him set back further in the frame, so you can kinda see the direction that he is looking.

    Exposure's good, though i would use a remote flash to fill on the front side, kill the shadows some.

    And from a pet peeve standpoint, tell him to keep both hands on that weapon. Looks very unprofessional standing there holding it like it's a bb-gun.

    Yes he is able to handle a firearm, but it looks very unprofessional. That's all I'm saying.

    If these were to be printed, you want the best possible overall look, and nonchalantly letting your weapon dangle is sloppy.
