Corporate style portraits… they can happen almost anywhere. And it often means bringing some camera gear and lighting to a specific location and then making everyone look amazing.
I had the opportunity to photograph a plastic surgery office. They were having a company party at the owner’s home (which was amazing) and at the same time I was there to make people famous.
Good lighting goes a long way to make a great photograph. I can create the right kind of light and shadows to help people look there best. The right light can help fill in lines and wrinkles (if people happen to have them—I’ll never say). Shadows can help hide or slim people if they need or want it.
Not everyone feels comfortable in front of a camera. Perhaps most everyone is shy in front of the camera. I’ve joked before that being photographed should be rated up there with public speaking and death. So my job is to pull out your best and get you to look natural, relaxed, and amazing.
One of the people was introduced as a former Miss Utah. She knows how to strike a perfect pose for the camera.
We also wanted a group photograph of everyone and I like to spread people out and make it a “Calvin Klein” kind of photo were everyone is separate, cool, and doesn’t care that a camera is pointed at them. Your cool if you don’t care that you are cool.
And the good doctor wanted a group photograph by the waterfall because he spent some good money to get the waterfall built. Hooray for waterfalls!
After the photos I shot a few candids as the group enjoyed games and catering by Iceberg Drive Inn.
