Head shot(s) of the day! Loved helping Liz find just the right look for her business head shots to promote her speaking and training engagements. She especially liked the black and white versions so that’s what we’ll showcase here!
I love a challenge when it comes to photography, and shooting interior architecture, well, never lets you down. From the mixed lighting (color temperatures), to the wide dynamic range of light, and even the editing required, they all present their share of challenges.
I had the opportunity to photograph a new retirement community center for a prominent national builder recently and they needed interior and exterior images of the community center for entry in a national competition (no pressure, right). So I knew I had to pull out all the “technical big guns” for this shoot, from carefully planned composition to multiple exposure HDR techniques to custom editing in Light Room and Photoshop. Fun stuff for photographers! The bottom line for me is that I was able to deliver some really unique images for my client that can be used to showcase their new facility to potential clients and help grow their business! That’s a win-win.
We’re running a great special on head shots to kick off the year. The first of the year is a great time to update or get a professional head shot for Linkedin, your business cards, website etc. We photograph lots of head shots around this time, so if you need a head shot, make sure you take advantage of this great deal.
One of the most enjoyable things I get to do as a professional photographer, is deliver the final portrait products to our clients. We love delivering our signature wall portraits to our clients in their homes and even hanging for them if they choose. Today we delivered a 40″ custom sized canvas print to the Stallings family and did a fun reveal with the entire family present. Everyone loved it!
For custom wall portraits, the clients home is usually where it all starts with a personal design consulation, so it’s great to wrap up the experience with a personal delivery and get to see the final portrait in place, with the client. I’m convinced this is the best way to not only meet but exceed the clients expectation. We help them plan every detail of the portrait from the clothing tones, location setting and even the right portrait products that will fit with their style and decor. This way, when we photograph we already know where the portrait will be going, how it needs to be oriented, the look we’re going for and so on. When you start builing a house, you should already know what the end result will be. The process is the same for creating a great custom family portrait, and that’s what we love doing for our clients!
We’re excited to be teaching another Basic Digital Photography class at Wake Tech starting next week! Click the link below for more information or to register. This class is at the north campus near I540 and Louisburg Rd (US 401).
Some recent images from a commercial shoot we photographed for a vet clinic just outside Raleigh. This was a half day shoot to create some new images for the clinic’s website update. The site was a gorgeous historic property converted for the business, so finding nice visualy appealing backdrops was easy this time. Had a great time working with and getting to know the staff and their pets too. Fun shoot!
Fun time with the staff. Not sure if this one will make it on the website though.
Some nice images here that we created for client recently. This client needed a modern executive look, so we dropped in a digital background to give his images a nice crisp modern, corporate office look. This has been extremely popular lately with a lot of our clients, so we’ve made it an add on option to our normal business head shot offerings. Call us for more details if you like what you see and want something a little different! (919) 850-0492.
Normally you only get to see the nicely posed photos on the website, but we get to see how co-workers really interact. 🙂 A before and after shot from a recent commercial photography shoot for a local veterinarian clinic. We love having a little fun with clients while stll getting the job done and creating some great images for their new website.
