For many years people with glasses have gotten used to taking them off for photos. Photographers are intimately familiar with this problem, especially those who shoot a large volume of people back to back. Because of the proliferation of anti-glare lenses it has become a much smaller problem, but it is still a pesky one. Over the years and many, many jobs, we have developed a method to help us deal with this issue. If you are in a situation where you are shooting a large amount of subjects back to back and you don’t have time to adjust the lighting setup for every person, this is a great trick to keep in your tool kit.

Corporate events are a fantastic way to energize your sales force, unify your team and reward the hard work at the end of a good year. Big companies come to Orlando every day to put on events for their teams. We have seen everything from Corvette giveaways and fire-jugglers to celebrity concerts and dancing storm troopers, but maybe the most popular part of the events that we work is the headshot booth. Professionals from all over the world line up to get a great, professional headshot and our team loves to deliver. If you have an event coming up, here are 3 reasons why it’s a great idea to add headshots to it:

 

1. A Consistent Look – For companies with a lot of employees, especially those with offices in multiple locations, getting the team together for headshots can be difficult. A convention is often the only time everybody is all together and presents a great opportunity for everyone to have consistent and professional-looking images.

2. Increased Value – Corporate events are a great opportunity for a company to say thank you to their teams of hard working employees. Providing the chance for attendees to get a great-looking headshot is great added value and a moral booster.

3. It Saves Money and Time (which is money) - If every office hires a photographer to come out to their location and photograph the staff, you have loads of time spent working with, booking and paying photographers. Everything from inquiry to the delivery of the final images uses the resources of staff in every office. If you have headshots provided at your annual event, there is one vendor to work with, one bill to pay, and one email chain to manage. Many paid hours and money saved by keeping it simple and doing it all in one place.

Check out the 30 second video below of 460 headshots we captured at a three-day, corporate event. No matter how many attendees you have or what your needs are, we have the ability to accommodate you.

We had a brilliant time photographing Jenna and Pete’s wedding party session and then their wedding! Before we get to the wedding photos, here are a few more from their pre-wedding, wedding party session at Universal Orlando. We were able to get in a little bit before the park opened to the public and get some great shots with the attractions. Because it was Jenna and Pete, we focused on Harry Potter and The Simpsons. Enjoy!

Jenna and Pete are excited to get married. Like, REALLY excited. So excited, in fact, that they got their whole bridal party together for a pre-wedding shoot in Universal Orlando. With a little bit of magic, they were able to get everyone in before the general public so we got some incredible opportunities for images in some of the coolest places in the parks. There are so many images we love but here are just a couple of our favorites  a couple of our favorites:

Let’s face it, if you are in the professional world, you need a headshot for something. As a small to medium business, it can be difficult to come up with the brand and identity for your marketing. Headshots are part of that. We very often work with businesses who aren’t completely sure what they want to use as a background for their headshots. The good news is that we have the ability to remove and replace almost any background after the fact.

Examples of different backgrounds

Here are the 3 Main Reasons to Shoot with Background Extraction in Mind:

1. Flexibility in Design – Web designers, marketers and graphic designers often struggle with working photos in to websites and other designs because of the restrictions of size, orientation and branding. Shooting a headshot or professional portrait while keeping the background extraction in mind can give designers the flexibility they need to incorporate your images in to almost any design seamlessly.

2. Consistency – If you have a business with multiple employees in multiple locations, it can be a challenge to make the headshots consistent between offices. Placing the background digitally will ensure that the background to every headshot and profile photo is exactly the same, no matter when or where it was taken. This is a huge help to large companies or companies who are growing and hiring new people on a regular basis.

3. Versatility – If you are a realtor, lawyer, accountant or engineer, you might find yourself changing jobs from time to time. This means that the branding and identity you represent might change too. Being able to change the background in your headshot means that you can take the headshot you love with you and easily change it to make it match for the new job. Also, if you have multiple intended uses for your image, like LinkedIn, website or other marketing materials, you can use the same headshot for all of the above and change the background and orientation to make it fit perfectly wherever you want to use it.

You have many options when you get a headshot and today’s digital technology makes it possible to make sure you get the perfect look for yourself and your employees.
