Board of Directors Portrait Photography

August 30th, 2017 No comments

When a BOD has their annual meeting, it’s a great time to schedule photography.  Many leaders of the companies we work with only get together once a year.  This project for an international consulting firm included people people from offices in LA, London and India.  We worked to coordinate the headshot and portrait photography in all the locations.  We frequently hire and train photographers in other parts of the world.  Their photography need to precisely match the headshots and portraits we make for the offices in Northern Virginia and DC.

When you have 10min with a bunch of people that won’t be together again for a year, you better bring your A team photographer.

Trustworthy Pharmacist Headshot

February 19th, 2015 Comments off

What looks like a simple headshot was actually very tricky.  The white coat and shinny badge gave me trouble at first but I’m trained for such lighting issues.  Angle of incidence equals angle of reflection, the inverse square law,….etc.  I like the portrait because of the nice contrast in lighting and the “trustworthy” look.  It was done on location at a Wegman’s in Virginia.  We shoot for them regularly, matching their requirements for background and crop.

Lansdowne VA Portrait Photography

February 8th, 2015 Comments off

We recently did four sessions of portraits in Lansdowne Va, within the Lansdowne Resort. We’ve done 23 of these portraits for SSP Ameraica at this point. It’s tough to get everyone together in a big company like this, so we have to reproduce the look time after time. We do like to have some variation in the backgrounds and poses we use, so they look nice when all displayed together.

Green Screen Portraits

April 13th, 2014 Comments off

We often shoot background images for our archive while on location for photography assignments.  We frequently use green  screen (chroma key) techniques to make a portraits and drop them onto images from our background archive. We have thousands of backgrounds & elements: buildings, skies, grass, bushes, etc. in our archive.  Many of the bushes and other elements have been isolated from their surroundings over the years for various projects.  You could say, the grass is always greener on the other side of Photoshop.  Placing portrait subjects onto random backgrounds does require finesse  to look natural, but we find this to be a compelling way to make interesting and flexible portraits.  See below green screen portraits of structural engineers:
