Speaker / Trainer Photo Shoot

We had a client come in recently who needed some specific looks for her national corporate training website. She needed images for her website showing her presenting and a regular head shot. We shot everything on a white background so the subject could be extracted easily by the graphics design person working on the clients web site. We’re only showing the white background images here, except for the head shot, because we don’t have the final composite images. At the clients request, we did include one of our digital composite backgrounds for the head shot because she liked our background options so much. The head shot was fairly simple, but the presentation images were a little challenging because you always want the subject to look natural and engaged, like they’re really presenting to an audience. So how do you achieve that in a studio setting? Well, we picked a topic with input from the client and had her talk to my assistant about it. It also helps when your client is a really polished presenter and already knows what to do with hands and facial expressions. 🙂 The hardest part is finding the right angle at which the subject looks the best and looks naturally engaged, so the images doesn’t look staged. We did have to try both sides of the camera and some different angles, but that’s the key to success, you use your skills and talent to set up the shot that you think will look the best and then you review, adjust and fine tune until it looks great! Fun shoot, the client really loved the images and I learned all about the Netflix documentary “Happy”. 🙂

Military Portrait for Lt. Colonel

I had the privilege of creating a military portrait for a Lt. Colonel in the US Army recently. This portrait will be posted at all of the command centers that he’s in charge of, so we wanted to get this right and make him look good.

We discussed the appropriate expression, stance, etc, as I normally do with clients, before setting up for the shot. The image was photographed on a standard studio background and then we extracted the subject and dropped in a digital background with the right colors and flag. A little extra work, but worthwhile to make sure his portrait looks good and represents him well at the command centers where the chain of command is displayed on the wall. Love the way the final image turned out and enjoyed having the opportunity to create a nice military portrait for one of our service members.

Business Head Shot for a Real Estate Agent

I had the pleasure of working with and creating a professional head shot for a new real estate agent recently. Leigh Ann is transitioning into her new career as a residential real estate agent in the Raleigh area and had just recently passed the real estate exam. She was super excited about her new career and wanted to make a great impression with potential clients with a professional image on her business card and the website. We worked with her to choose the right background and outfit that would work well with the company business card color scheme and other places it would be used. I love working with real estate agents and being a small part of helping get their new careers off on the right foot!

Real Estate Business Head Shot

I recently had a former student from one of my photography classes contact me about creating a professional business head shot for her. She was finalizing her real estate agent training and needed a professional image to use for social media, real estate web sites, and for her business cards. We looked at the colors on the company card, talked about the look she wanted, and designed a head shot image with a modern hi key background that would work perfectly on her business card. I love working with clients to design just the right look to help them present a nice polished professional image to their target audience.

Professional Business Head Shots

I had the opportunity to work with a great couple recently that run a foundation that helps provide scholarships for under privileged kids. They’re in the process of designing their website and needed professional head shots so we helped them dial in on just the right professional look and feel for the site & type of work they do. I love getting to know my clients and hearing their stories and being able to help them get the look they need to achieve their goals. A great couple doing good things for people!
