I always enjoy doing portraits / headshots. Each session is unique because every person who I photograph is unique. Getting their personality to show in their photograph is what makes portrait photography so interesting. Sometimes it is easy, other times it takes a bit more effort to get my client to relax and be themselves.
A local company that I work with was looking to update their executive portraits for their annual report. They needed both individual and group portraits of the three top executives. The executives were getting ready to release the year end numbers and prepare for their investor conference call, so we would only have them for a few minutes.
I went to their location the prior week and we took test shots and we decided on the locations and lighting for both the group and individual photographs. The morning of the shoot I arrived two hours early to setup three different locations with the proper lighting. We started the shoot at 10AM and we were done with all the photographs (both group and individual) by 10:20AM. The executives were happy and we got the photographs we needed.
